With many speculations flying around the internet about The Long Island Medium, Theresa Caputo, we can’t help but wonder if she is or is not the real deal? According to Radar Online, Theresa is under fraud investigation. During her visit to Hersey, Pennsylvania, many of her audience members complained she only engaged with the audience on the first floor, produced forced and uninspiring readings and was “off” with the readings. In addition, it is said that Theresa has her people walking among the crowd listening in for information.
Well, I saw Theresa Caputo at the Beacon Theatre on June 22, 2014, not once did I see any of the above accusations take place. To my knowledge, there was no one outside or inside of the building “fishing” for information. As a matter of fact, people were purchasing beverages and snapping selfies and pictures with family and friends. I know because out of curiosity I was scoping the area. Moreover, Theresa engaged with all levels of the theatre, appeared inspiring and was far from phony.
I come from a family of mediums and we know how overwhelming it is to be in a room filled with thousands of people and their loved ones from the other side. Spirits are all over a medium hoping to get their message across. In this particular case, Theresa did the best she could to address as many audience members as possible. She actually read two to three people at a time because the spirits pulled her in the direction they wanted her to go. This is where she appears “all over the place” but she is not. She follows the spirits who lead her to the right person and provides accurate messages.
In a subtle way, she addressed the fraud rumors. The tears families shed and the many hearts she touched that afternoon proved any skeptic in the audience wrong. She dared to tell a young woman that two spirits she wished to hear from where present but did not feel it was the time to speak. Her readings ranged from murders to suicide to drowning. Many members had similar situations, but each person had a special way of knowing she was transporting the truth. Theresa would share something unique, only the spirit and that particular audience member understood. The bottom line is no one appeared disappointed with their readings. On the contrary, they were grateful.
We all have opinions and different perceptive on mediums. But I believe in Theresa. She is not vague, uninspiring or a fake. She is not “fishing” for information. If you do not have the understanding of the spiritual world or the afterlife, then you will have a difficult time wrapping your head around the whole concept. Believer or not, you cannot walk into a venue of close to 3,000 people and expect to have a reading. This type of event is a lottery. You may get chosen. You may not. It depends on the spirit. My sister and I left without a reading. But we left with a greater message.
Theresa is not a fraud – at least not to my knowledge and the knowledge of the medium who attended the event. People will say the worse about Theresa maybe because they didn’t receive a reading, didn’t receive answers they hoped for, didn’t understand the experience or simply lack understanding of the spiritual world.
