Theresa Caputo’s "Live! The Experience" is a one-of-a-kind event that connects the Long Island Medium with legions of loyal fans and skeptics from across the country. Each show is uniquely different in that it brings people from all walks of life together for an evening that’s spontaneously spiritual and, at times, beyond belief.
The New York Times Best-Selling Author and star of her acclaimed series, "Long Island Medium,"is about embarking on a whole new round of dates that will take her across the U.S. to deliver messages of hope while challenging cynics to believe that anything is possible. One of those stops will be a two-night stay at The Sands Event Center in Bethlehem, PA on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 1 and 2.
Caputo’s been sensing Spirit since she was a small child, but it wasn’t until she was in her twenties that she began to hone her intuitive, sixth-sense ability to put pieces of the puzzle together and help others to heal. Her "Live! The Experience" is certain to be an unforgettable evening.
AXS recently spoke with Theresa Caputo about her Live! The Experience event and more in this exclusive new interview.
AXS: What can fans expect from your upcoming “LIve! The Experience” events at The Sands Event Center in Bethlehem, PA?
Theresa Caputo: With the live show, I always tell people it’s just like watching “Long Island Medium,” but without the shopping [laughs]. I’m so proud of what we’ve been able to create and bring to the live show. Whether there are five people in the room or five-thousand, it’s all spontaneous. I start off the night like any other reading by coming out and giving a quick speech about what people can expect over the next two hours. Then Spirit starts communicating. I’ll leave the stage and whether it’s in the front row, back, or balcony, I’ll stop and deliver the message right in front of the person. We have big screens set up and cameras that follow me around so everyone feels a part of it. No matter where you’re seated you’ll be able to see the messages being delivered up close and personal. Every message provides so much healing. Spirit allows us to continue to go on with life no matter what we’ve been through. It lets us know that there’s more to life than just here in the physical world.
AXS: What do you think attracts people to your live events?
TC: One of the main things is that when a tragedy happens or when we lose someone we sometimes don’t understand why and lose our faith. This show restores that faith and gives hope. Another thing I’ve learned is that people come to the show because they’re skeptical or intrigued. But it doesn’t matter if people believe in what I do or not. I want them to believe in themselves and have their own connection. I want you to believe that all of the things you are feeling are real.
AXS: Was there ever a “wow” moment for you during these live events?
TC: It may sound cliché but with every reading, there are those moments. There are always things that happen where you’ll say, “There’s no way. How could this happen?” But what I do is so much more than just communicate with someone who has died. It reunites families and gives people a sense of peace they can’t get through anything else.
AXS: Has your gift changed or developed over the years?
TC: My gift changes with every reading I do. What I’ve learned with giving these messages is that it’s not always easy, but everything Spirit has given me is to help and for the highest good. I’m not afraid of a situation or something negative coming through because there’s always a positive solution at the end.
AXS: We often hear you say during readings that someone has “stepped forward.” Is this a vision or is it more of a feeling?
TC: For me, the only way I “see” is if I’m shown a flash of something I can relate to, like in a film strip. It’s more through feeling and just knowing things when I start talking. I don’t really have a lot of book knowledge on certain things. I remember when I first started with groups and Larry [Caputo’s ex-husband] would say to me, “What are you talking about? There’s no way you could know anything about that subject!”
AXS: Are there any other projects you’re working on?
TC: This year I’ll be touring around the country and continuing to film “Long Island Medium”. I’m also looking forward to spending more time with my family and continuing my journey and work. I absolutely love what I do and don’t have a single regret. I’ve been very lucky and blessed and extremely fortunate.
AXS: What would you like fans to take away from attending your live experience?
TC: If it’s one word it would be faith. I want people to know that what they experience is real. I want them to be open and able to feel the signs from their loved ones. It’s great to go to a medium to communicate and get validation but you don’t need to. Everyone handles things differently. The key is to live the best life you possibly can and don’t beat yourself up or feel guilty, even after a loss. It’s all about hope and faith. Those are the two things you need to have in order to have love.
