EP 81 - Theresa Caputo
I am so excited to introduce this weeks interview. The simply astounding Theresa Caputo. I love talking to people who tap into energy and spirit. She is the "Long Island Medium" which has been going on for 10 years. She also has her Hey Spirit Podcast, which I had the pleasure of being a guest on. I love how Theresa's gift exposes us to a whole other existence that we are all curious about. Theresa tells us her story of when she first started being visited by Spirit. It took a lot of courage to embrace her gift. Saying yes to your soul's true purpose is not always easy. The comfort she brings to people suffering in the grieving process is why she does it. She is here to serve people the best she can. And Theresa knows this is what she is in this life to do. Theresa cannot summons a spirit. She can only communicate the message of a spirit that wants to communicate. When I was a guest on her show, the spirits that visit us were my grandmother, and the father of a close friend of mine. Dale Earnhardt had messages for Dale Earndhart Jr. It was a remarkable experience. I am grateful to Theresa as many thousands are for dedicating her life to the important job of communicating spirit, and soothe those suffering their loss. I hope you enjoy this episode, and if you want more Theresa Caputo grab her fantastic books "Good Mourning", "Good Greif" and "You Can't Make This Stuff Up”.
I’m the Long Island Medium (maybe you’ve heard of my reality show?), and a New York Times best-selling author. I was born and raised in Hicksville Long Island, and have two children Larry 30 and Victoria 26 and a feisty Yorkie named Louie. My parents Nick and Ronnie live next door and my brother Michael and his family live a few towns over.
I’ve been seeing, feeling, and sensing Spirit since I was four years old, but it wasn’t until I was in my 20s that I learned to communicate with souls in Heaven. After suffering from debilitating anxiety and trying to manage it on my own and with a therapist for years, my mom introduced me to a spiritual healer and teacher named Pat Longo. After just one session, she told me that I was suppressing Spirit’s energy, which caused a lot of my anxiety, and helped me learn to channel Spirit through my chakras and release it with my words. I began to heal and come into my own.
When I accepted my gift, I decided to use it to deliver healing messages that would help people learn, grow, and embrace life. I’ve been a practicing medium for over ten years now and tour the country with my live show “Theresa Caputo Live The Experience.” I’ve also written four books: There’s More to Life than This: Healing Messages, Remarkable Stories, and Insight from the Other Side (Atria Books, 2013), which debuted at #2 on the New York Times best seller list, “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” Life Changing Lessons from Heaven (Atria Books, 2014) NY Times bestseller “Good Grief” Heal Your Soul, Honor Your Loved Ones, and Learn to Live again (Atria Books 2017) a NY Times bestseller. I’m very excited for you all to read my new book Good Mourning: Moving Through Everyday Losses With Wisdom From The Other Side (HarperCollins 2020) available now for pre-sale and On Sale October 6, 2020 Considering I started this work with just a business card and word of mouth, I pinch myself when I think about what a crazy ride it’s been for a typical Long Island mom!
Clients, fans, and the media always ask me to describe how I receive information, and it’s hard to put into words because I see, hear, and feel things differently than we do in the physical world. Spirit mostly speaks to me through a sixth sense—a kind of feeling and knowing. When I get information, it feels like very strong intuition, or recall. Spirit also uses a vocabulary of signs and symbols that they show me during a reading; over time, I assigned words, phrases, and meanings to certain images I was shown, and then through trial and error, Spirit helped me add new ones until we created an entire vocabulary for us to work with. I translate my signs and what I feel as best I can and then deliver the messages, but it’s the client’s job to interpret how the meaning is significant. It’s like piecing together a puzzle and can sometimes sound like guesswork, but Spirit speaks “another language,” at another speed, and in another dimension. My job’s not easy lol!
I’m grateful for an ability that’s brought countless people comfort and joy, helped many believe in an afterlife, led others to trust that their loved ones are safe and at peace, and shown them that those souls are guiding, encouraging, and loving them from the Other Side. My wish for everyone I meet is that Spirit gives them a message that brings them the most peace at that moment.
