".....When Kathryn Ma was five years old, some friends of her parents came to dinner in Melbourne where the family then lived. “I remember I said something to this lady about her husband. I don’t come from a gypsy family, so I don’t where it comes from but I can see visions – clips, snapshots of people’s lives . . . And this lady looked as if I’d slapped her in the face, she started shaking me and crying, ‘Who told you that?’ And I remember understanding then that I shouldn’t repeat these thoughts out loud.”
 

Ma, talking over a latte in the Mandarin Oriental’s Clipper Lounge, laughs (something she does with great frequency) and adds, “I guess I learnt there are some things you don’t say.” About herself, however, she’s wonderfully frank – you feel there’s not much she wouldn’t reveal if she set her mind to it. “Why spin webs? There’s no point,” she says, when congratulated on this refreshing openness. She’s warm, feisty, funny and it’s no wonder that one of her two name cards bears the title: House of Energy. She could, you feel, give both China, Light & Power and Hongkong Electric a wattage run for their money. 
 

The list of accomplishments on that energetic name card is considerable. She’s a psychic reader, a reiki master ..............
 

............ and then took off for America. The San Francisco expo – “Wall-to-wall weirdos, healers and psychics for seven days, I was like a kid in a candy store” – opened her eyes to the possibilities of that strange, disconcerting gift she had known she had possessed since she was a child. When she came back, in 1995, she started to do readings full time. “I’d decided it’s either now or never. I’d give myself two years and then do something more normal.” Do people think it’s abnormal? Ma nods. “It’s very hard to jump from the socially-accepted norm – you do get ostracised by people.” What did her parents say? “Oh, they’re great, very supportive.”
 

She has just had what is traditionally her busiest time on the calendar – the months which coincide with Western and Chinese New Year. (And, right on cue, a woman based in the US rings on Ma’s mobile to arrange a reading – she can do them over the telephone.) Ma is a horse and believes that the Year of the Horse will be much better than the Year of the Snake which has just slithered off, barely lamented, into the undergrowth. “It should be a much more positive year, plenty of growth and lots of action.”
 

Is she optimistic by nature? “Yes, but I’m a realist. I would say I’m a mediocre businesswoman from the point of view of book-keeping or financial planning – but concepts, getting things to happen, forging ahead, that I’m good at.........."

Driven – Written by Maggi Summerhill

I first met Kathy thirteen years ago in a pub in Brighton UK. She had come over for a few weeks doing a tour visiting friends. We instantly got on and spent a few days together, shopping, laughing and generally having a lovely time. Little did I know that back in Hong Kong my new friend was a celebrity and a regular guest on local radio shows.

 

We have stayed in contact despite the physical distance and over the years I have learnt that behind that laid back happy-go-lucky demeanour lies a person who is incredibly driven and determined. ‘Hong Kong teaches you not to be lazy and try your best at all times.’ She says and adds : ‘As a woman you have to be even better.’

'Kathy makes friends wherever she goes, despite this she is surprised when I asked her to be interviewed for my blog: ‘But why? I’m not very interesting.’ She says’.

 

Kathy is unusual; she is a Chinese Australian living and working in Hong Kong. She is psychic and a serial entrepreneur and yet she is one of these people who lives her life without a plan, accepting whatever challenges it hands her with gusto and flair.

 

You may think knowing what the future holds solves a lot of problems, like making the right choices and getting involved with the right people – foresight must be better than hindsight. But she insists that’s not how it works: ‘Psychics are unable to make predictions for their own futures.’ She says and explains: ‘Emotions get in the way, we make mistakes like anyone else.’

 

In fact it took Kathy a while to realize she could read the future. Not from a psychic background, while growing up she tried to reason she was a good guesser and her anticipations were logical rather than psychic. But after meeting a psychic in her early twenties she gradually realized she had an ability. Despite this she was still at loss to fit it into her life and it was only years later, attending a World Health Expo in San Francisco and meeting working psychics she realized she had to trust her ability and decided to embrace her gift fully. Kathy admits:’ it was a now or never moment.’

 

Kathy being Kathy not only set about giving personal readings, but quickly got involved with the business community as well, giving readings and strategic advice. ‘I wouldn’t give financial advice. I would convey the intentions of the participants of a meeting and the tone of the meeting itself which obviously went a long way to help good decisions being made.’ She says.

 

Attending other people’s meeting and reading other people’s lives was not enough for Kathy in the long run. She set up a Mind, Body and Spirit shop (The House of Energy), followed a few years later by a dating online website (DateAsia) and a paid Privilege lifestyle card purveyor in Hong Kong (VivAsia). At this point, much to her amazement she was hailed as one of the major trend setters in HK. ‘I’m not like that!’ She protests: ‘Things capture my interest and inspire me. Then of course comes the challenge to see if I can do it.’ She laughs.

 

Viewing her success and popularity I have to ask: ‘Why Hong Kong? Why not the world?’

Kathy doesn’t even pause to think: ”In Hong Kong you’ve got total efficiency – it’s amazing what you can get done in a day.’ She explains: ‘ Australia is too laid back and I did have offices in China, but it drove me crazy – it drove everyone crazy. Initiative and responsibility was basically alien to them.’

Like Kathy, Hong Kong is full of contrast; densely populated it still has the feel of a village. Its inhabitant driven and demanding yet they are exceptionally friendly, helpful and creative.
 

Like in most of Asia the extended family in HK is very strong and despite living accommodations in general being very small by western standards it wouldn’t be unusual for a married couple to have one or two grandparents living with them and looking after the children. However there is an emotional and financial need to work.

 

Kathy driven as she is values her family more than her personal ambitions. You see while HK teaches you not to be lazy and try your best at all times – family always come first.

MOMENT OF TRUTH

EDWARD IWATA, OF THE EXAMINER STAFF
Published 4:00 am, Sunday, June 30, 1996

http://www.sfgate.com/business/article/MOMENT-OF-TRUTH-3137203.php

 

"Life seems normal for the 6 million people of Hong Kong.
 

During a recent humid week, business people poured from soaring office towers, ignoring beggars at their feet. Barges and ferries chugged across the narrow harbor. Stocks on the Hang Seng Index veered from bearish to bullish to bearish again. Magician David Copperfield dazzled crowds at the Hong Kong Coliseum. And psychic Kathryn Ma charged $100 an hour to read her clients' futures.
 

But not even soothsayers know the fate of Hong Kong. Will Communist rule lead to a new Chinese empire, a golden age of business and culture - or a nightmarish landscape of corruption, bloodshed and soldiers in the street?"
