Huntington residents can experience the connection between the worlds of the living and the dead next month when Theresa Caputo, psychic medium and star of the show “Long Island Medium,” brings her live experience to the village for two nights.
The 51-year-old Hicksville native said she first began communicating with spirits at the age of four, but did not truly understand her gift until she met with spiritual healer Pat Longo in her twenties.
“She helped me understand my gift, understand what it was that was happening to me, and through her classes I was able to use my gifts in a safe place,” Caputo said.
Caputo likened her live show to watching her TLC show “Long Island Medium,” but without the commercials.
“I’m very proud of the intimate moment that we have been able to create with the live experience,” she said. “I’m not on the stage; I come out and give about a 10 minute speech on how spirits communicate in a large venue … then I get right down to spirit communication.”
The live show involves Caputo walking through the venue trailed by a camera crew, who project her interactions with individual audience members to large screens so the entire crowd can share in the experience. Caputo said it’s all up to the spirit where she stops and to whom she delivers messages during the show, but the souls that speak are the ones that can affect the most people at once.
“Even though I might not be standing in front of you, you might be saying ‘that sounds like what happened to my father, or that’s exactly what happened to my sister,’” Caputo said. “Whether you get read or not, whether you believe in mediums, whether you ever lost someone, the experience changes you in a positive way.”
The psychic medium said she has the best fans, and is excited to be performing during the holiday season in front of Long Islanders.
“To be able to do a holiday show near my hometown, I feel very blessed,” Caputo said. She went on to say that it’s not important to her that people believe in mediums, but that those who attend her show understand that the soul bond they share with their departed loved ones will never be broken.
