“There’s More to Life Than This”

photo

When was the last time you chatted with a dead person? Serious question.

So you may or may not be familiar with Theresa Caputo, star of The Long Island Medium on TLC, but I got the chance to see her Live, in-person! Boy, was it an experience! First of all, I truly believe in what she does and I also believe that there’s fakes out there. I never thought she was one despite all of the backlash she gets for making money off it (which she did clarify all of the rumors during her show. She gives most of the money she makes from the show to charity).

Holy crap though. I could’ve never prepared for what I was about to witness. The whole night was amazing and by the end of it I felt exhausted and drained by what had just happened. I think I teared up about 4 times and gasped about 20. Here’s one story:

So she starts talking about a young red-haired boy, and kept saying that her head hurt so he died from head injury. No one was claiming they knew this story. She starts looking throughout the room and goes, “hold on…” and starts walking the back up to the balcony (where I was sitting). Then she comes up by us and here I am just staring at her hair and long nails as she communicates with the deceased (of course). Anyway, a mom and her son about 2 rows up for me stands up and says that it’s her son (and the boy’s brother) who passed away… wait for it… wait for it… 2 WEEKS AGO. OMG. So I guess he passed away from having a seizure and fell and hit his head and that’s how he died. He was right outside of his mom’s room when it happened and the mom said that she can still feel his presence in that spot and Theresa goes, “that’s him you feel”. (ODG. Not sleeping tonight)

So not to freak you out… but you know how sometimes you feel like someone is there but really isn’t? Yeah, sorry, I might’ve just ruined your slumber.

It was a night I’ll never forget and one that I hope I can partake in again. Have you guys ever seen or been to a medium??

4. I’m so down for a new ‘do this Fall and I might just have to mock up this purty “sombre”

5. TED Talks are just the bomb.com – Luckily, someone compiled a list of them that are “sure to get you off your a$$”

6. This bada$$ lady is almost 100 years old and she’s probably in better shape than me…

7. OH SNAP. This girl just put popular artists to SHAME! I just can’t… this girl’s voice is a mix of fergie and Jesus.
