Theresa Caputo, better known to many as the Long Island Medium, is back on Sunday night with new episodes of her hit series, now entering its fifth season.
In “Long Island Medium: On the Road,” Caputo travels the country, surprising people with readings about their deceased loved ones (she even does one at a prison.) But the drama also unfolds closer to home, with Caputo learning of her daughter’s desire to try pole dancing and deciding to — possibly — change up her famous hairdo.
The medium is so busy, we couldn’t even get her on the phone for an interview, but she did find some time to respond to our questions via email.
What’s the hardest part of balancing your show, family, clients and spirit?
The hardest part of balancing is finding enough time in the day to connect with everyone!
Can you talk about what it feels like when you’re getting messages from the other side? What are you seeing or hearing?
I see shadows and silhouettes. I feel the emotional bond that you shared with them and the way that they passed. I also feel my clients’ emotions — their sadness, guilt, grief —and any burdens they might be carrying.
What are some of your favorite moments you’ve had reading people?
I feel that every reading is special and unique and has its own amazing moment. The most amazing moment for me in every reading is watching the transformation from sadness, grief and sorrow to happiness, joy and laughter (because after the loss of a loved one we tend to forget the happy times).
Is it ever frightening when you’re doing a reading?
No. I am never frightened because I only asked for the highest good of all concerned and positive messages.
What do you say to those who are skeptical of your abilities?
Listen, everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, but this isn’t about me. This is about spirit validating to each and every one of us that there truly is more to life than just here in the physical world, and that they are still here with us just in a different way.
What can we look forward to this season? Is there really a change to your signature hairstyle?
You will just have to wait and see on March 9 on TLC. LOL! Change is in the eye of the beholder 🙂
