I recently received John’s audio tape, “Understanding your Angels and Meeting your Guides”. It is read by John and he is an excellent reader…very soothing… and he slows down his voice.
I have never done a meditation in my life and John makes it easy on the tape. It made me feel like I was almost in a hypnotic state. The deep breathing was difficult for me to maintain but I need to practice.
Has anyone had great success meeting your guides in the house or a loved one in the Gazebo on this tape? All of the visualizations were easier for me on my second try and I think I saw my animal guide, (a bear cub), think I got a name for my master guide,( George?:) ), and think I had a very emotional meeting with my husband in the Gazebo. I seemed to remember the scenes clearer the next day than when they were happening in the mediation. The very bright light is difficult for me to see.January 4, 2002 at 7:52 pm #74793frostyParticipant
This is a really good topic. I also would like an answer to your questions from those more experienced with meditation. I am relatively new to meditation, though I have always prayed – (in my opinion a form of meditation).
I too find the bright light very difficult. I think that the visualisation of places comes with practice. I find that I have to construct the place in my mind first and get it just as I like it and then I have no trouble seeing it and each time I go back to this place I get their quicker because I know what I’m looking for.
I’d love to hear from those who have more experience with this as it may help us all with our meditations.
love and kisses

I have done the meditation in the past, to meet my guides in the cabin, and I too saw my animal guide, ( a byson) although for some reason in the meditation I have a hard time communicating with or seeing my guides, I have met my primary guide when I was not meditating, her name is Barbara ( Babs) and I had a great validation, as my best friend actually met Babs before I did and after I told her of my meeting, she pulled out her journal and had read an entry where she said her name and had described her just as I had seen her. I guess my point is that your guides can pop in on you at anytime, although meditation is great, sometimes they will come to you when your not trying so hard. Does that make any sense??? Anyway good luck to you, I know I am still trying to learn on the meditation, every thing seems so magnified when I’m trying to meditate, I get a pain in my leg, or an itch somewhere…and it totally breaks my concentration. I’m still trying to learn to just scratch the itch and go on with my meditaiton without letting it bother me. I’m happy that you had a meeting with your husband in the gazbo, that is such a great gift!!

Hi Samara, I don’t know if it was just my trying so hard to see him that made it happen or if I imagined it because I wanted it so much. I got chills while visualizing myself walking up to the door and opening it. He seemed to come to me and hold me. Tears were rolling down my cheeks (for real) and he appeared to be younger and healthy.
John talks you back to alertness shortly after this.January 4, 2002 at 8:35 pm #74800NLitenmeParticipant
We always tend to think that maybe we just imagined it, but I really don’t think so, I really think your husband saw that as his oppurtunity to hold you once again.

Hey Guys – did you know that we had a whole other forum dedicated to John’s tapes? We discuss this tape in that forum too.

Good luck with the tapes – they are EXCELLENT!January 5, 2002 at 1:00 am #74815tigger2001Participant
I’ve tried some meditation in the past (in yoga), but I can’t seem to get the hang of it.
I’ll order the audio tape to see if that works…..as it’s highly recommended by you all.

I’ve done the gazebo meditation only once.
It was very emotional..I remember not wanting to be brought back.
I’m so glad you’re husband was there for you.

I’m not sure where else to post this, except here!:)
On today’s show, during John’s readings, two things really stuck out for me and only confirms my urgency to have a reading done.
One was the fact that he can distinguish if someone has died of diseases like AIDS. During my 7 years of working with the HIV community in my area, I’ve lost many many friends to AIDS, and I’m wondering if he can pull them out when he’s doing a reading, even if it’s someone who has passed from AIDS, and often comes back to “visit” in my dreams. The other is a big one for me, and that is communication, and the fact that we aren’t a lovey dovey family. There was someone is his audience today that confirmed his family wasn’t close, and the person on the other side let John know that. I wodner if that can happen for me too. Yes I know, not to go in with any expectations.;)
