HUNDREDS of witches, clairvoyance experts and psychics will assemble on the shores of Loch Ness this June in a bid to make contact with Nessie.
The High Priest of British White Witches, Kevin Carlyon – who calls himself “the Official Protector of Loch Ness and the Loch Ness Creature” – is organising the one-off psychic gathering and is hoping to prove the monster is in fact a ghost.
The white witch – who claims to have thwarted the plans of “monster hunter” Jan Sundberg from Sweden coming to Loch Ness to attempt to capture Nessie a few years ago – believes the monster will never be caught, because she’s not actually alive.
Kevin explained: “The creature is a ghost from a bygone era and its image has been captured by the surrounding landscape. In certain weather conditions, particularly very warm or thunderous with a lot of static in the air, images of the creature are ‘replayed’ and people who are slightly psychic see the creature as if it is here now.”
Now the white witch hopes to prove his point about the monster, which drums up hundreds of thousands of pounds in tourism business every year for the area, by organising the coming together for those who have psychic abilities.
Kevin said: “I predict there will be at least 200 people present at the event. I’ve only mentioned a small bit about the event on my website and the interest so far has been phenomenal.
“I’ve had psychics from all over the country, and was even speaking on the phone to someone from New Zealand who plans to incorporate the event into their trip to Britain next month.
“It’s going to be quite an event. I’m hoping it will go ahead around June 21, but I still need to confirm the actual date.
“Computer programmer Mikko Takala will be filming the event and it’s hoped it will be broadcast live on www.lochness.co.uk
– so hopefully Nessie won’t be camera shy!”
Those who may be disappointed at the suggestion that the Loch Ness Monster is a ghost have been offered some reassurance by Kevin. He said: “Everyone has psychic ability in them somewhere, and some people will be able to still see Nessie.”
