“Long Island Medium” Theresa Caputo talks to my dead mother, for real

I was about 15 minutes into my conversation with medium Theresa Caputo about her new TLC series Long Island Medium when my mom decided to show up.

Caputo interrupts my questioning with, “You’ve lost a lot of loved ones.”

I disagree, saying “I wouldn’t say a lot, but a few, yeah.”

She confidently asks, “Is your mom departed?”

“OK, that’s weird,” I think. After all, most people my age still have their mothers, so she really took a long shot throwing that one out there.  But, I acknowledge that my mother is indeed deceased.

Caputo goes on to explain that prior to answering my call she had written down a few things including my name, mother, daughter, young male, 4 and 62. She tells me there’s a “lot of energy” going on, and suddenly I get a little nervous, thinking this could be my doing. Although I didn’t tell Caputo, when I drove to work that morning I had actually talked to my mom in my head [and that’s something I just don’t do. I’m a bit skeptical on ghosts and spirits]. I simply thought, “Hey, if you want to reach out to me I’m talking to a medium today.” And that was it.

Caputo asks: “Where you at the actual passing of your mother because your mother showed me the holding of the hands, which means she wants to go back to the day of her passing. Were you actually there for that moment or did you just miss the passing?”

I gulp. It’s a sensitive topic for me, since I was the only family member who actually wasn’t there when she passed. So I tell her I was not.

Caputo says that my mother is validating that nothing was left unsaid and that “everything and anything you said to your mom was heard.” She then asks? “Whose birthday is now? If it’s not today or the week of it’s usually the month we are in.”

“That would be me,” I tell her. “OK,” Caputo says. “So your mom’s just wishing you a happy birthday.”

I give an uncomfortable laugh and jokingly ask Caputo to tell my mom to hush up, so I can get back to doing my job.

But Caputo — well, maybe it’s my mom —  isn’t quite finished. We go on to connect months and dates, discuss that “young male” reference, significance of April and more. She presses on with “Do you remember the year 62? Or could it stand for the month of June and the month of February as far as birthdays or anniversaries?”

“My mom was born in February, died in June,” I confirm.

“Perfect,” Caputo says. “Just validating your mother’s presence and that she took this opportunity. Spirits will take any opportunity to get a message to someone.” Then Caputo’s Long Island accent comes out as she describes my mom as a “chatty catty.” Glad, she’s having a good time.

“Whether you believe or understand what I do, and I don’t mean to be rude, but it really doesn’t matter,” Caputo says. “That’s not what this is about. This phone call is not about you believing in what I do. What just happened right now, what I interpreted it as a beautiful gift you just received from your mother. Knowing that even after all these years of her not being here in the physical world she hasn’t missed out on anything. She acknowledged your children, that she held the children before coming here in the physical world and she’s still with you, and loving and guiding you from the other side. Right?”

What a loaded thought. I pause. I collect my thoughts. “Did I tell her I had kids? Could this seriously be real?” And I simply say: “That’s awesome. Thank you.”

So add me to Caputo’s long list of clients who have been given the gift of closure. Now, as for my sister, she’s really ticked my mom didn’t even give her a shout out! She’ll have to join Caputo’s long waiting list and maybe we’ll here back from her in a few years.

 Long Island Medium airs on TLC Sundays beginning Sept. 25.

  11. My mom has been deceased over 12 years. She has come to me in visions usually when I’m creaming at night. I can fill her when she’s around me and my kids. I can also smell her perfume and have seen shadows of her walking towards my house.

    I work in the hospital and I am one of the very few who see and hear what I see and hear in the hallways.

    Occasionally I get these premonitions and they are actually on the mark.

    My question to you is… I just recently moved and I reside on the third floor away from any headlights traffic or shadows away from any place across from me. Three times I have noticed a black shadow from the corner of my eyes walking across the wall. Is that an EVIL SPIRIT as depicted on my findings from the Internet ? I did have a recent death in the family last week. Plus I have a friend in hospice and will be dying in a day now.

    Please help as I don’t know what this is? Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

    Please validate for me that I am not going crazy I need to be put on medication.

  12. theresa caputo preciso muito de voce entre em contato por favor a 21 anos estou esperendo.
