Theresa Caputo, also known as The Long Island Medium, has an in-person tour called “Theresa Caputo Live! The Experience!” I got to see her live just this past weekend and I was absolutely riveted.
I had seen a couple episodes of her show on TLC years ago back when it first came out. It just wasn’t my thing. You might be wondering then why I would pay all this money to see her live if I’m not a fan. I wanted to see another Medium work, especially one that is at the top of the profession.
First of all, let me just say that if you are thinking of going to this, there are no bad seats. I was glad that I didn’t shell out for the expensive seats because she is only on stage for like a second and then she moves throughout the entire audience for the rest of the show. There are no seats where you are more likely to get a reading. It doesn’t matter if you are seated in the front or the back or if you are seated on the aisle or in the middle of the row. The show lasted for 2 and a half hours and she did a lot of readings during that time.
I actually liked her personality better in person than the way it comes across in the show. Obviously they edit her in the show and that will give off whatever impression of her that the producer is looking for. In person, yes, she’s funny. But she also comes across with a great deal of sensitivity and compassion for everyone in that audience. When I work with spirits I just blurt out whatever the spirit wants me to say, while she is clearly much more careful with the messages she says and the state of mind of the person receiving those messages. So this is something I’m going to work on myself.
Just before the show was going to start, I could hear my father telling me that he was going to come through. He never put me first and this time he was going to be sure that I was put first infront of all these people. “Please don’t!” I pleaded back. My father died 16 years ago and at this point I’m feeling like there are people in the audience that need it a lot more than I do. Then sure enough she starts out the show by saying “I’m getting from this section in the audience a father that passed away young. He was diagnosed with something else but then died of a sudden heart attack. You were not expecting him to die that day”.
I knew that was my dad but then someone a couple rows in front of me jumped on it even though her dad was still living. Theresa then went on to say several hyper specific things about my dad including what he said to me in a dream just days after he died. It didn’t fit for the woman at all and she said as much. I knew it was meant for me and that was good enough. I still got the reading even if I didn’t get called out. I’m someone who has trouble asserting myself and putting myself out there. I’m also easily steamrolled by others. This is actually why I’m doing the blog and the Youtube channel, because I’m trying to work on getting my voice back as part of my own trauma healing.
Anywho, I was satisfied that I still got the message and felt like it was actually better that way because I avoided the hot seat, but dad was not going to be denied. He was going to stand up for me and make sure I was heard by all these people. A couple readings later Theresa Caputo stood right next to me and said “Who has the dad that died right after graduation”. I immediately burst into tears and she handed me a mic. Our interaction was pretty short before she picked up on another spirit for someone else, but I still got a reading.
This might sound weird being that I do Youtube videos, but it was very hard for me to be vulnerable like that in front of all those people and knowing all those eyes were on me. When I do a video, I don’t have to see the audience. Some people have no problem being raw like that infront of others, but obviously I do. I had to kept repeating to myself “You did nothing wrong” for the rest of the show to keep myself from leaving.
After the show when I was standing outside waiting for my husband to come pick me up a woman kept staring at me and then said “Hey you –” and repeated something I said while talking with Theresa Caputo. I’m sure she was just trying to be friendly, but yeah I felt really self-conscious and felt that familiar desire to just disappear. I know in my heart that it’s time to stop being invisible. Again, that’s the whole reason for doing this blog and youtube.
This might sound strange, but I really think the show would have been just as good even without getting a personal reading from Theresa Caputo. You’d have to be there to understand what I’m talking about. She really is stunning in person. It’s also amazing how she connects all the readings together. Even if she is reading someone else, there is a message in there for you.
I don’t want to sound like I’m judging anyone, but there were people shouting at her during the show. If a reading is meant for you, she will walk right over to you. If she says “I’m getting a husband who passed on” and you are clear on the other side of the auditorium, it’s someone else’s husband. I also saw people reaching towards her as she walked past, dangling objects in front of her. I assume those objects belonged to someone who had passed and they were trying to spark something by having them in view. Theresa is really good about ignoring that kind of stuff and does not respond to it. I’m not saying this to make anyone feel bad, but just so you know if you are thinking of going to her show. You can’t make it happen. But if it’s going to happen, it will happen, and you don’t need to do anything to make it happen. Just trust. I also feel that there will be a message in there for you no matter what happens.
