How does Theresa Caputo, the Long Island Medium, actually GET her information? Is it ESP, telepathy or just good old fashioned spiritual communication? What about cold reading or fishing for answers … something that many of the skeptics like to argue? Or is it possible that the show is edited to make it LOOK like she is getting far more "hits" than she actually is?
As a psychic and paranormal writer and researcher, I have to be honest … there is NO more exciting time to be involved in this field than right now!
Because interest in psychic, spiritual and even paranormal phenomena is at an all time high, and people can't seem to get ENOUGH when it comes to topics that were once considered taboo.
What may surprise you is this:
As someone who makes a living in this field, I DON'T believe all of the famous psychics and mediums are really doing anything very special or impressive.
Many of them, in my view are "guilty" of some of the things that the skeptics and cynics claim, and I like to think of myself as extremely open minded with EVERY medium I study … but NOT so open minded that my brains fall out every time I hear something that sounds good.
Theresa claims to be getting her information from the world of spirit … and NOT from ESP or telepathy or reading the minds of her clients, and I believe that this is truly what she is doing.
And while I know that some of the TV show is certainly edited for brevity, levity and overall entertainment, the overall tone of the show is true.
How am I so sure?
I've been watching the Long Island Medium LONG before she actually became who she "is" today, and well before she was on TV at all.
As a matter of fact, there is a well known non-profit organization that works with grieving families on the East Coast called "The Forever Family Foundation", and Theresa was demonstrating her psychic abilities publicly there WELL before her more recent "overnight" success.
As someone who believes in mediumship through personal experience with 100% certainty, I can tell you that her gifts, BEFORE TV were often more impressive than the stuff you see on the show.
That said, as with all psychic mediums, she certainly has her detractors, and there are people who will never believe ANY of this is real, simply because they refuse to believe in spiritual realities outside of the physical. One famous skeptic recently said, and I paraphrase –
"EVEN if the spirit of my very own Mother showed up and spoke to me for 30 minutes, I still wouldn't believe it was real."
Ultimately, the ONLY way to prove psychics, or spiritual experiences are real, is to seek them out for yourself. What I can promise you is this: If you have an open mind, and search for the truth, you WILL find it. And what you WILL find, will change you forever … much like it did me, I promise!
