The interview ended and I learned her name and that SHE was the one who had the show called Long Island Medium. I had heard of the show but had never seen it. I went inside and I think it may have been immediately that I started watching her show on Hulu. I was kind of shocked when I saw her on TV for the first time after just hearing her speak on radio. She was not anything like I envisioned she would look. She just seemed over the top with her long island hair and extreme nails and her dress style. I have to admit that I had ALL kinds of judgments. I happen to have a brain that is very analytical and judgement seems to automatically come with that, but I am still learning to not listen to those judgements. So guess what? As I watched on, she smashed EVERY SINGLE ONE of the judgments I had of her.
I see her now as a brilliant healer, who has fully integrated her gift into her being, into her life, into her work, and into the public eye. She has done this despite coming from a walk of life where I wouldn't necessarily expect her gift to be particularly easily "accepted." She's shown me that there is nothing incompatible - over the top style (have you seen her high heels, LOL!!) and big hair can go hand in hand with a profound connection with Spirit. I've seen that she is courageous in using her gift for good - she'll approach anyone anywhere when Spirit connects with her. She'll share her gift even with rude skeptics and she always does it with grace. She doesn't need others to believe in her gift for her to do what she does. She is not afraid of showing that she is human too like the rest of us - she has fears and likes and dislikes and quirks and flaws like all of us. By her reactions, you can tell she's amazed by her own gift during readings all the time - she is continually amazed by how Spirit can come through exactly how its needed for loved ones. Seeing this in her gave me permission for the first time to be amazed by my own gifts and to not have to hide that amazement. I don't need to appear that "I'm in control of everything" and "I know exactly how my gifts work" and the likes. Its OK to admit that these gifts come THROUGH me; I experience them, I don't own them or control them. They are just as amazing to me as they are to those who are receiving the benefits of my gifts.
Just the other night, my husband and I were watching her show together, and through streaming tears I told him I was crying because, "She's just such an inspiration to me!" Being an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person), there is hardly an episode where I DON'T cry! And its funny because she couldn't be more opposite than me in every way. I'm quiet, on the shy side, could care less about girly things like clothes and fashion and my hair, and on and on. Theresa in this way has also helped me deeply appreciate and care for others who are very, very different than I am, while NOT feeling like I'm any less than them for NOT being like them.
All this from a TV show! I feel Spirit led me to her, in feeling that strong intuitive pull I felt to GO FIND OUT WHO SHE IS and then the strong resonance I have with her show and ALL that I've gotten from it and from her. She is on my list of people that someday I want to meet, and my plan is to someday organize a reading for some of my family who could really use it.
The Universe, Spirit, whatever you want to call it, often speaks to me through the screen - TV and movies. Makes me laugh every time - because who woulda thought!!?? Now that is something Theresa would say! Love to you @TheresaCaputoLongIslandMedium, and all that you do! I hope you forgive my judgements :-D
