Psychic claims she can detect impending death on a person

A former secretary-turned ‘psychic-coach’ claims she can smell impending death on people close to the grave – but describes her gift as useless because she cannot save them.

Ari Kala says she first discovered her sixth sense when she visited her dying uncle aged 12 and smelled a ‘sickly sweet’ odour that no one else in her family could pick up.

“The night before his death I picked up this this odd, sickly sweet rotten kind of smell in the house,” the 24-year-old said.

“I thought it was the smell of his remains as I had never smelled that before. But no one else could smell it.

“I realised later it was the frequency of death I could smell,” she said.

“Since then, I’ve experienced the same thing around people with terminal diseases or the very elderly – too many times to count.”

After brushing aside her psychic ability for fear of being different, she this year decided to pursue her calling properly when she grew disillusioned working as a legal secretary in Sydney.

Now, Ari has waved goodbye to the corporate world by teaching women how to harness their inner psychic powers – but revealed she never tells people when she notices the smell of death on them – because it is ‘not her place’.

“Sometimes it feels like a burden. I used to want to say something, however I realised it’s not my duty.

“I don’t put much effort into developing it. It’s kind of useless – how could it help anyone? How I can walk up to strangers with this smell and help them?

“What if they don’t know they are going to die soon? If I told them that and they weren’t aware, it could be catastrophic. I don’t see how it’s up to me to interfere with their fate.”

Ari, from the Hunter Valley, NSW, believes everyone has a psychic potential which is suppressed by societal conditioning from a young age.

She delved into the world of spirituality after being driven to depression working a 9-5pm job as a secretary.

“Children are told to grow up from an early age,” she said.

“They are expected to fit in, be quiet and behave as normal as possible.

“They are also told their imaginations aren’t real, which causes these psychic abilities to switch off.

“As a child, I could read people’s emotions and always dreamed about things that came true.

“People didn’t like it, and as I grew more fearful of being judged I switched these abilities off.

Now, she coaches women – many part of the witchcraft community – aged 25 to 45 about how to put their psychic skills to good use.

“I lost some friends and family, but it was the best decision I’ve ever made,” Ari said.

“I teach empowerment from within. It’s the ability to attract whatever you want – whether that’s clients, money or your dream life.

“I used to get a bit of negativity from trolls online, but I have learned it’s ok to be weird, and just to laugh it off.”
