On Saturday April 8th 2017 this author attended the 2017 Psychic Mystics and Seers exposition in Toronto at Queen Elizabeth Hall on the Exhibition Grounds in Toronto, the entrance directly opposite the main west entrance to BMO Field.
The old building has big windows all across the top of the exterior walls that offer good light and fill the room with good energy on bright sunny days. On that chilly Saturday morning it was filled with a supernatural splendour commodified in beads, crystals and moonstones, totem carvings and scrimshaw.
When entrants first walk in the door they see several large signs erected by the administrators that are positioned between the ticket counter and the exhibition hall. These helpful signs list the exhibitors but also outline tips for hiring and using psychics.
First Star has been at the forefront of organizing many of Canada’s biggest and most successful psychic fairs & expos for the last two decades. They’re experienced enough to know the value of printing a helpful guide to “How to Choose a Psychic” with useful tips to get a more tailored reading. And they also make an equally informative Psychic Dictionary available to all attendees.
For more than twenty five years, Stan and Ray at First Star have been helping comfort the people Ontario by bringing many diverse and powerful mediums together in one place. Over the last quarter century their many seasonal expositions have become the mainstay for mystical merchants across the province.
In printed pamphlets promoting the show, First Star asks the public, ‘…are you wondering what the future holds for you in the areas of career, love, money, and other important personal matters? Ask one of our highly gifted psychic readers, mediums and clairvoyants. Would you like to experience powerful alternative healing methods? We have professional wholistic and alternative healing practitioners at all of our shows.”
First Star’s sales pitches are not in any way deceptive, for there really is something for everyone at their annual psychic expo. In addition to over thirty mediums of all different types, there were twelve or more massive gems, crystals and books vendors plus two days worth of free lectures and psychic demos on two stages.
Hybrid vendors like Beyond Eden, the Venessa Barros team sell merchandise and psychic services. Vanessa’s sister retails spiritual candles made from soybeans, while she offers Tarot card readings at a small table under a Tiffany lamp in the back of their booth.
Over two dozen ‘mediums’ in this marketplace can divine your future, or reveal your past karmic errors and comfort you in the present by providing some direction for your wanderings.
These psychics have wisdom and healing to share in acupuncture, hypnosis or high quality Tarot Card readings. Their psychic revelations can be shockingly profound, and yet the knowledge they share has probably been right in front of you all along, as plain as the lines on the palm of your hand.
The trade show floor is a lot quieter than most exhibition halls and its a curious mixture of eye contact and receptive body language that calls passerbys over to meet psychics and introduce themselves to otherwise quiet practitioners. Many of these booth-bound mediums are accompanied by a ‘non magical characters’ who greet the public while their counterparts are occupied with the occult behind them. These mystic merchants stand upfront and sell time with their thaumaturgists at quiet tables in the back of their booths. Below is Karen MacRae from On the Other Hand Jewellery in Toronto getting a reading after she commissioned a psychometric analysis of an item in her inventory she believes has supernatural properties.
2017 Toronto Psychics Mystics and Seers Expo is very diversified, and not at all broken into sections or organized by mini-markets and subcultures. There are crystals merchants beside clairvoyants and astrologers beside astral map dealers without any ideological delineation. Amidst the tumult this author found some wonderful treasures.
The man-made crystalline creation below would be a very respectable prop in any modern science fiction movie. What is it called? I didn’t get a name or any description – please leave your thoughts in the comments.
There are crystals on sale here that are $1.50 each or ten stones for twelve dollars. This must be slightly heartbreaking for collectors who believe their lapidaries are worth more than twelve dollars. indeed the energy and spiritual wellness they bring could be the most important ingredients in someone’s life.
Science fiction books and moves like to assign great powers to crystals; every Trekkie knows that dilithium crystals power the Starship Enterprise, and now more recently Rogue One – Star Wars attributes the destructive power of the Death Star to Kyber Crystals which attune The Force. The Star Wars fandom wiki is very clear on this point – the crystals themselves are not the source of the power, but rather agents of The Force. “As part of Jedi training, younglings were sent to the Crystal Caves of the ice planet of Ilum to mine crystals in order to construct their own lightsabers.”
When viewed from the perspective that crystals are catalysts for focusing energy, some of the most powerful lenses are the ugliest understated stones. Ugly elemental ore bodies often have distinct psychic properties. The pyrite seen above focuses atmospheric signals and shields the user from negative energy of all kinds. Pyrite blocks energy leaks and mends auric tears. A nearby sign at the show said “Carry Pyrite in your pocket to protect you from both environmental pollution and physical danger. Pyrite also promotes good physical health and emotional well-being.“
Quartz crystal is among the most powerful geologic agents when focusing energy for the ‘Third Eye’ to enable psychic visions.
2017 Psychics Fair in Toronto is filled with very educated and experienced entrepreneurs who offer visitors superior psychic services and a curious inside look at the supernatural side of life in the big city.
