I got back late on Monday afternoon from a weekend of events in Pennsylvania. My host for the weekend was Gloria, a wonderful woman who became a long-distance student about 2 years ago. I’d had the great pleasure of meeting Gloria when she’d come down to Cincinnati a couple of times to take a weekend class, and we were able to spend some time together a couple of summers ago when we were both at Lily Dale at the same time. She asked me to come to her hometown to teach a class with her mediumship development circle and to do a message service. She even arranged for me to do a booksigning at the nearby Barnes and Noble Booksellers. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to visit her and to meet so many new people interested in spirit communication.
I arrived at Gloria’s home (on top of a mountain in the Poconos, no less!) on Thursday evening and enjoyed her family’s hospitality all weekend. They are truly the most generous people I’ve met–Gloria graciously allowed me to stay at her house so I wouldn’t have to spend anything on hotel costs. She kept me well-fed all weekend, and it was terrific to visit with the family I’ve heard so much about over the last few years.
On Friday, Gloria and I spent some time together, and I also devoted a few hours to preparing for the class I was going to teach that night. Gloria runs a development circle of mediumship students in her home, and those folks came over on Friday night so I could present some material to them. I chose to speak about negative energy and answered a lot of great questions from the students. It was a fun evening for me, and, I hope, for them. I know I truly enjoyed meeting the group.
On Saturday morning, Gloria and I got ready, and she drove me to nearby Wilkes-Barre for the booksigning at Barnes and Noble. It was a very nice store run by a great manager named Cindy, who had my table and books all set up right at the front door. It was a pretty busy store, too, and I met several people who were very interested in mediumship and angels. Here are a couple of pictures from there:
The above picture shows Gloria and I at the bookstore. Below, I’m signing a book for a customer.
We spent about 3 hours there and then headed for Gloria’s house so I could get ready for the evening’s event. Thanks to everyone who came to see me!
On Saturday night, Gloria had invited about 50 people to come into her home for a presentation about spirit communication and then a demonstration of mediumship messages. We had a large crowd, but Gloria managed to fit them all comfortably in her huge family room. I was thrilled to work with so many people and to be able to help more folks understand mediumship. The spirits were in attendance, too, and the messages that came through were well-received. It was a great night!
On Sunday morning, Gloria and I went with some of her students to The Journey Within Church in New Jersey, which is run by Rev. Janet Nohavec. Gloria currently studies with the church, and I have taken Janet’s mediumship class at Lily Dale. It was a lovely church, and the service was beautiful and meaningful. Here are the gals outside of the church after the service:
After a lovely lunch with these ladies, Gloria and I went home to her house in Pennsylvania to relax–and believe me, with views like the one below, you can’t help but do that!
If you live in the eastern Pennsylvania area and want to get in touch with Gloria, she’s a wonderful, compassionate medium and friend.
I was sad to leave Gloria’s place on Monday morning, but I sure did miss my family. An 8-hour car drive brought me back home to them.
I want to thank Gloria for making this wonderful weekend possible. She was a generous and loving hostess, and I hope I’ll be able to visit her again!
As you’ve probably guessed by now, I didn’t have time to prepare a post for Tarot Tuesday. Sorry, everyone! But it WILL be back next week, I promise!
