VOICES FROM BE­YOND

For psy­chic Sally Mor­gan, open­ing the eyes of her au­di­ence to the pos­si­bil­i­ties of an after­life is one of the joys of her live ap­pear­ances

Celebrity UK psy­chic Sally Mor­gan will hap­pily of­fer up next week’s lotto num­bers – you just have to ask. “I’ll cer­tainly give you lotto num­bers, but you won’t win,” Mor­gan glee­fully trum­pets.

Mor­gan says it’s one of the most of­ten asked ques­tions, usu­ally by scep­tics or men who are not so in touch with their emo­tions.

It’s why the one-time per­sonal psy­chic to Princess Diana, and even Aus­tralian singer Natalie Im­bruglia, ex­pects more women than men in the au­di­ence for her cur­rent tour of Aus­tralia.

The Bri­tish medium brings her live psy­chic per­for­mance to the Gold Coast tonight, where au­di­ences can ex­pect to be moved by her abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate with the dead.

“The peo­ple who come to the show are psy­chic junkies ... I’d say 60 per cent are women,” Mor­gan says.

“Women are more in touch with their emo­tions and they’re not wor­ried if they burst out cry­ing ... but men don’t want to go to that place so maybe that’s why men prob­a­bly don’t come as much.

“My shows are about loss and death and death, still even in 21st cen­tury, is a taboo sub­ject.”

Mor­gan’s visit Down Un­der is her sec­ond work­ing trip although she’s trav­elled here about “18 times” by her own ac­count. She says be­ing linked with Princess Diana, Ge­orge Michael, Im­bruglia and Katie Price was not her do­ing.

Mor­gan says she has done read­ings for some of the most fa­mous peo­ple in the world, but it’s not some­thing she would per­son­ally dis­close.

“What I do is to­tally con­fi­den­tial,” she says. “I have seen in­cred­i­bly fa­mous peo­ple but no one knows I’ve seen them be­cause they haven’t said any­thing about it and I cer­tainly wouldn’t.

“It’s never come from my mouth, ini­tially, who I have seen.”

Even though she saw Diana for more than four years, some­times al­most daily, she has never con­tacted her per­son­ally since she died in 1997.

“I would only re­ceive in­for­ma­tion from some­one who has passed if one of their rel­a­tives was in front of me and I am not a rel­a­tive of hers ... so I am not go­ing to hear from her,” Mor­gan says. “Her energy would come through around one of her rel­a­tives.”

Mor­gan be­came aware of her psy­chic abil­i­ties as a child, in­her­it­ing her pow­ers from her grand­mother. She claims to have seen her first ghost at the age of four.

She was never daunted by her abil­i­ties, how­ever, em­brac­ing them at a young age.

“I truly be­lieve it’s al­ways there, like a hum,” she says. “It’s a sixth sense. It sits there, wait­ing to be used, but we’re scared of it. Be­ing able to share my work with a wider au­di­ence has been an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity for me.

“Sud­denly peo­ple who may never have shown an in­ter­est in the spir­i­tual world were be­com­ing in­trigued and feel­ing en­light­ened at the thought of an after­life.”

In what prom­ises to be a “life-af­firm­ing” ex­pe­ri­ence for the au­di­ence, Mor­gan says her shows are an in­ti­mate af­fair … each has its own energy.

Psy­chic Sally Mor­gan will be happy to see you, just don’t ask for the lotto num­bers.
