Have you all heard of the show The Long Island Medium on TLC also known as Theresa Caputo?
She talks to the dead. Yep, she’s had a special gift ever since she was 4 years old. She says she’s been through a lot of therapy and has had major anxiety and one point was even afraid to leave her house. It wasn’t until she met her “spirit mentor” Pat who taught her to embrace her gift and use it to help others communicate with their loved ones.
At first I’m not going to lie, I thought it was a bunch of BS but after watching a full episode and the emotions that these random people showed; it just had to be real. She knew too many details to be able to “Google” it or find it on Facebook. I was hooked and have been watching her ever since.
My friend Deena said she had tickets to see her live here in Charlotte and I was thrilled that she wanted me to go! Finally, I was going to be able to see for myself if this was for real; like I thought or all made up! Last night we headed downtown and stopped at the Peculiar Rabbit and had some dinner while enjoying the spectacular view of the Queen City.
We then headed over to Ovens Auditorium to see Theresa up close and personal doing her thang. It was an amazing experience! I have always believed that there is another world other then the physical world here on earth. But in the back of my head there was some doubt. I mean, what if she is getting her information from somewhere or someone else and she really isn’t connecting with spirits?
But honestly after seeing her in action, I’m more of a believer now then ever. She knows too much. And to keep everything straight, at some point she was reading 3 people at once (which she calls piggy backing) I was totally confused and it was hard for me to keep up with all their stories but not for her. She was just spewing out information about these three women and all the people they had lost. She read people for 2 hours straight. Walking down the aisles she would stop and read someone and then move right on to the next. There were a few kids in the audience that got read which was really awesome but really hard to listen to and watch. Seeing the children break down because their father or grandfather was coming through was just heart breaking. But to see the relief on their faces afterward was just amazing.
There was one little girl in particular, she was about 8 or 9 I’d say and she had lost her older sister. But the difference with her is that she actually sees and talks to her sister. Being so young and not really understanding what is happening she gets frightened. Her parents had to put up cameras all around their house to make her feel more safe. She’s been in and out of therapy and they all think she’s crazy. Her mom said through tears that she started singing her sister’s favorite song and that there was no possible way that she would know it since they were 8 years apart. I mean word for word. Theresa took this little girl under her arm and explained that she had a wonderful gift and not to be scared. That her feelings were true and that she should talk with Pat. I thought that was pretty amazing. This little girl who you could tell was terrified and teared up while talking with Theresa felt so much better after hearing she wasn’t nuts. Theresa then invited her and her family out to NYC to come to her Christmas show which I thought was pretty cool of her.
Seriously though if these people are actors they are freaking amazing and need to win the Academy Award. The emotion that you see in these people’s eyes, the hurt, the guilt and most important the relief and peacefulness they find after is more then I need to believe. Theresa said she started the show to raise “Spirit Awareness” and she’s done a fantastic job. Just seeing how many people she has helped feel at ease here in Charlotte I can only imagine what she is doing throughout the rest of the world. Props to you Theresa, keep doing your “thang”.
Regardless of what I have just written do you believe people here on earth can talk to the dead?
