Indulge in the mystic world of psychics

2015-03-28 00:00

AS the Psychic and Lifestyle Expo hits Pietermaritzburg’s Golden Horse Casino this weekend, locals can indulge in the mystic world of mediums and clairvoyants.

Held in the casino’s conference room, the fair hosts a number of mediums specialising in chakra balancing, crystal healing, tarot card and palm readings, and helping loved ones cross over.

Draped in colourful cloth and filled with incense, the psychics sit in booths, attending to each client privately.

One, known only by the name Kiran, who is said to have travelled all over the world as a psychic, said he was expecting a good reception at this year’s event. Kiran said he started public readings as a psychic at the age of 13 and had been a practising medium for 16 years.

He invited sceptics and “believers” to the festival to enjoy the light atmosphere and a chance to broaden one’s boundaries.

“I have turned many sceptics into believers and, at the end of the day, I am not here to force anyone into believing; I am here to guide people through any issues, past or present.

“What most people don’t realise is that when we do readings, they are not law or set in stone; they are merely guidelines for people to follow, and not to make life decisions on.”

A psychic channel medium, who is known to her clients as Diane G, has been in the business for 15 years and said she hopes to guide and help people using the fair as her platform.

“We always get a really good reception from our fairs wherever we go and the best part is having people call you afterwards to tell you how much you helped and guided them.”

The fair, which started on Thursday morning, hosts the mediums in its conference room for private readings, after which they perform live shows.

The event organiser, who would not be named because she has received threatening calls from people opposed to the staging of the fair in the past, said this was the second year they had held the Psychic Fair at the Golden Horse and the Pietermaritzburg community had received the event quite well. She said the community was still warming to the idea of the fair, but as long as there was constant foot traffic, she would be happy.

“When it comes to Pietermaritzburg I know some people are still a bit apprehensive about attending a psychic fair, but I think it will grow.”
