“I know he will be a dear friend each day forward,” said Salaz as she introduced Dr. John.
When she asked him about Spirit Lives! and the origin of that title, he replied, “We’re talking about such a dynamic entity it needs an exclamation point.”
“I want to give the reader knowledge and hope,” he continued. “knowledge that there is this vast, vivid, very alive part of the universe called spirit and hope in the sense that we’ve all lost someone that we miss terribly – hope that this person is still alive in a different consciousness, the consciousness we call it now is spirit or soul.”
Dr. John also shared one of his earliest memories of the affect of spirit on his life. Before his family moved into his house in Hoboken, his maternal grandfather, Giuseppe Galioto, was asked to come and look at the house.
“He said, ‘This is a good house,'” Dr. John recalled. “He didn’t check the plumbing or the architecture. He sensed the energy in the house … I was fascinated by this as a young boy that some people had a “knowingness.”
He shared another experience with spirit when he planned a trip to Ellis Island on Labor Day in 2006. He had an issue with his credit card when he tried to book the trip and then later decided to go instead on September 19. He used the same credit card and the transaction went through without a problem. Dr. John searched for his father’s name to see his immigration record. He discovered that his father had immigrated on September 19, 1907.
“How did that happen?” Dr. John asked. “Spirit intervention.”
