Fair brings psychics to Canton


CANTON — For the sixth year in a row, psychics, vendors and paranormal investigators gathered at the Best Western University Inn, 90 E. Main St., for the Mystical Journey Holistic and Psychic Faire over the weekend.

The Friday-through-Sunday event put on by The Realm Shift, featured not only psychics from all over the state who used multiple methods to conduct readings, but also a wide variety of vendors who were selling items such as healing crystals and stones, blended herbs, oils, incense, soap, tea, books and jewelry.

Among the vendors were also an aura photographer and a biogenesis practitioner.

Wanda Winters and Elizabeth B.J. Mosher started doing psychic shows in 2003.

A few years later, they began a tradition at the Canton hotel every first weekend in November.

“The area needed something like this,” Ms. Winters said. “There are a lot of open minds here searching.”

Ms. Winters said the weekend is all about healing both physically and mentally and showing people how to help their own bodies stay healthy and stress-free.

“It’s a shifting of your consciousness into another realm,” Ms. Mosher said. “It gives people a foot hold to explore what they’re feeling.”

Ms. Winters is a psychic intuitive who was one of seven performing readings over the weekend. She said that although everyone charges a different amount, the average cost for a 15 minute session is about $40, and $60 for 30 minutes.

She said the psychics all use different methods, but two of the popular ones in the room were to use cards and stones to show what a client has been, is or could be facing in their lives.

“We go back six months to a year, what’s happening now and what’s open to you for the next six months to a year,” she said.

The Paranormal Investigations of St. Lawrence Seaway (PISToLS) had a booth up, showing different videos of their research.

They also took a group on a ghost walk Saturday evening through Evergreen Cemetery in Canton.

“We’ll be looking for any type of activity that could be going on there,” said Carl J. Davey, a Chase Mills member of the PISToLS. “There are some teams out there who are just in it for the money, but we don’t charge anything, and with functions like this, everything goes to a charity.”

Ms. Winters and Ms. Mosher also hold a September psychic show in Watertown and an April show in Massena.

“People are really happy that we come back every year,” Ms. Winters said.
