I’ve never bought into the whole psychic thing. I tend to roll my eyes at the thought of summoning spirits, and I definitely don’t believe in the magical practices of palm-reading or tarot cards. No offense to any mystics out there, it’s just not my thing.
But when the Boston Phoenix reported that a Florida psychic had received ghostly messages from none other than the King of Pop, I had to check it out. Sylvia “Lilly” Schenatzky, a psychic from Melbourne Florida, is cashing in on the never-ending MJ craze with the most creative of approaches: his ghost.
My ever-lasting love for Michael (I once learned the entire Thriller dance with my college roommate), combined with Schenatzky’s clever sales ploy, had my eyes glued to the paper during my morning subway commute.
The clever little Florida clairvoyant claims to have heard recurring messages from MJ himself, including brand new lyrics to a song. Sound like a get-rich-quick plan to you? Ditto. But I have to admit that some of the supposed messages are pretty convincing (not to mention thoroughly entertaining!).
According to Schenatzky, the supernatural Neverland native called her “the chosen one,” adding “I searched my whole life for you” when she asked the spirit to leave her alone. He also told her that he was murdered (does this count as evidence in a court case??) and needed her help. And after some thorough “automatic writing” in a dreamlike state, Schenatzky had the words to an all new song (show them to us already!).
Needless to say while I wait for the release of a post-death MJ song (Please let there be some sort of animated music video involved), I’ll be following Lilly Schenatzky’s press mentions closely. My psychic abilities tell me that we’ll be seeing Ms. Schenatzky either in court and/or at the American Music Awards in our near future!
