James Van Praagh sees dead people.
In fact, he feels like the movie “The Sixth Sense” — about a boy who communes with the deceased — is based on his life.
“I was that boy,” he said. “But I used to see very positive things, not really negative impressions or visions. It was all very positive.”
Van Praagh began seeing things others couldn’t when he was just a child, he said, but it wasn’t until he reached his twenties that he saw the opportunity to make a living with his visions. Today, he is a professional medium who teaches classes, writes books, hosts television shows and leads seminars, and Saturday he will make an appearance at the Grand Sierra, giving hundreds the chance to see him in action.
