There's More to Life Than This

Me and Spirit: A Match Made in Heaven

I wasn’t born in the back of some gypsy wagon, and I didn’t grow up reading fortunes on the Bayou. Listen, the only crystals on me are the Swarovski ones covering my Louboutins. I may not be your idea of a “typical” medium, but dead people don’t care. They’ve been bugging me to deliver their messages since I was a child, and that’s what I feel compelled and blessed to do.

I grew up on Long Island in a town called Hicksville, with my mom, dad, and younger brother, Michael. Mom was a bookkeeper and my dad was the public works supervisor for Nassau County. We were extremely close and still are. I was actually raised for most of my life in the house next door to the one I live in now. We have a gate in the back that connects our two yards, and Dad likes to use it so he can futz around in both our tomato gardens. When people come for readings, they sit at my dining room table, which looks out onto the back. I always say, “If you see someone out there, it’s not a dead person walking around. It’s just my dad!”

Growing up, I had the most loving, happy, and seemingly normal childhood. I was on a traveling soccer team and local bowling league. I loved playing with my dolls’ hair—I always thought I’d be a hairdresser, go figure. I had nice friends, got good grades, and spent a lot of free time with my family. I was always with my cousins, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. On Thursdays, we’d have spaghetti and meatballs at Nanny and Pop’s house; on Saturdays, I’d paint ceramics with Auntie G; and on Sundays, our whole extended family would go to Gram and Gramp’s house after church to spend the afternoon eating, laughing, and telling stories.

It was like the Long Island Italian version of Leave It to Beaver, but with a twist that literally kept us all up at night. I used to have the most frightening dreams, which made no sense given that my days were so carefree. These were actually my first memories of seeing, feeling, and hearing Spirit, though I didn’t know that’s what was happening. My first vivid experience happened when I was just four years old. At the time, we lived in my dad’s childhood home, which is right near the Hicksville Gregory Museum, a former 1915 courthouse that also had jail cells for prisoners in it. Some people think old buildings like prisons, with their history of pain and suffering, can hold on to Spirit. What a place for me of all people to grow up around! Anyway, I’d have a recurring dream where, from a window on the second floor of our house, I’d watch a man pace on the sidewalk out front. He’d chant my name, Theresa Brigandi, Theresa Brigandi, Theresa Brigandi . . . over, and over, and over again. Can you imagine how scary that was to a freaking four-year-old? I never saw the man’s face, but he was always hunched over and carrying a stick with a bandanna sack on the end. He wore ragged clothes and looked like a hobo.

Spirit later told me that this dream was actually a visitation, and I now believe this “man” to be one of my spirit guides for that time in my life. This doesn’t mean the spirit guide is literally a bum. It’s more like those Bible stories where people invite in the poor, and then later find out the person’s an angel. I now believe a hobo is the unassuming image that my guide took so that I’d understand the Sunday school reference and feel okay when he called my name. I was raised Roman Catholic and still practice this today, so I think my guide presented himself through my frame of reference, a little like how Spirit shows me signs and symbols during a reading now. They do it in a way that makes sense to me, so that it’s easy for me to interpret the message.

When I was four, a hobo equaled a gentle, godly man—at least when I was awake. At night, seeing, hearing, and sensing one made me cry out like I was being violently attacked. Again, I don’t think I was experiencing negative Spirit, and I wasn’t dreaming that Spirit pushed me around or anything; the dreams themselves weren’t “bad.” I was terrified because I’d feel Spirit’s energy, while seeing and hearing them talk to me, in this alarmingly real and personal way.

My inconsolable screams rattled my family more than what caused them, and my social life became limited. I couldn’t go to slumber parties or sleep at my grandmother’s house without wondering what I’d feel next. I didn’t feel safe anywhere but at home, and even that wasn’t a given. Besides the hobo, I also saw my great-­grandmother on my mom’s side of the family. She’d died four years before I was born, and I didn’t realize who it was until much later when I saw a picture of her. But I’ll never forget her standing at the foot of my bed—she was short with dark hair and wearing a housedress. I’d scream like a crazy person when I saw her too. Poor lady was no three-headed monster, though I sure reacted like she was!

In the morning, I’d forget most of these night terrors or how long they went on. I’m told they’d pass when my mom or dad would turn on the light and rush into the room. So did this make Spirit leave? I don’t know. But after a while, Mom made up a prayer to help me keep Spirit at arm’s length. It went, “Dear God, please keep me safe through the night. Bless . . .”—and then I’d name all the people in our lives, and those in Heaven. And wouldn’t you know, every time I said that prayer before bed, I’d sleep soundly, and so would my parents. I continued this when we eventually moved into our new home, the one my parents live in now, though I always kept the hall light on.

Even when I traveled with my family, I never got a break from Spirit. We took a lot of vacations together, including an annual camping trip with my grandparents for the entire summer. Most people at the site were lucky to have a tent with a Bunsen burner; we had this awesome trailer with a shower, kitchen, a screened-in porch so the bugs wouldn’t get at our food, everything. My grandmother made scrambled eggs and French toast in the mornings, and in the afternoons, we’d have bicycle races and go tire swinging into the lake. At night, we’d play pinball at the rec hall, roast marshmallows, and sing campfire songs. I was a regular Girl Scout! But no matter how much fun we had during the day, or how relaxed I felt, my night terrors would strike like they did at home. Only this time the whole area heard me! My grandparents even warned our fellow campers in advance—if you hear someone screaming bloody murder, it doesn’t mean there’s a bear or maniac on the loose! It’s just Theresa having a night terror. One time my parents wanted me to sleep with them in a tent, and I was deathly afraid of it. I felt safer in the camper, especially since I was seeing shadows against the canvas. I was so adamant about staying out that I kicked and screamed, and gave my father a fat lip. He was so mad. I was this close to knocking over the lantern and setting the whole tent on fire.

Though I handled Spirit’s appearances much better during the day, they were still a surprise. For instance, I clearly remember seeing three-dimensional people walk in front of the TV. I’d be sitting on our green tweed sofa, watching Romper Room, when a person would pass by and then fade out. One time this happened when I had a babysitter over, and I asked her if she’d just seen what I... -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

...ich glaube, viel dazwischen gibt es nicht. Theresa Caputo ist eine laute, fröhliche und etwas schrille amerikanische Hausfrau mit italienischem Temperament. Das alleine würde schon reichen, um eine Sendung über sie zu füllen, denn sie ist unglaublich unterhaltsam. Dass sie von Beruf auch noch Medium ist, übertrifft natürlich alles. Wer ihre Sendung kennt, weiß, dass sie ständig, ob an der Fleischteheke oder beim Zahnarzt, Menschen auf bewegende Art Botschaften ihrer Verstorbenen Familienmitglieder übermittelt. Auch da gibt es nicht viel dazwischen; man glaubt es, oder glaubt es nicht.
In ihrem Buch schildert Theresa Caputo, nicht minder unterhaltsam, ihren beschwerlichen Weg zu dem, was sie heute macht. Seit ihrer Kindheit sieht und fühlt sie Menschen, die sonst keiner wahrnimmt. Doch erst, als ein Psychiater ihr glaubhaft versichern kann, dass sie keine Psychose hat und sie spirituellen Menschen begegnet, beginnt sie zu begreifen, dass es wohl ihre Gabe ist, Sprachrohr zu sein, um Menschen über ihren tragischen Verlust zu helfen. Sehr ehrlich erklärt sie, was sie im Laufe ihrer Tätigkeit über unseren Daseinszweck und das Jenseits gelernt hat, ohne den Anspruch auf Allwissenheit zu erheben. Außerdem räumt sie in diesem Zusammenhang mit einigen bedrohlichen religiösen Vorstellungen auf. Überhaupt lässt das Buch durchblicken, dass es keine Rolle spielt, ob oder was wir glauben, da wir eh alle an dieselbe Quelle angeschlossen sind. Aus meiner Sicht sehr lesenswert, wenn man sich für dieses Thema interessiert.

Ich bin absolut zufällig über Theresa gestolpert und habe einen Ausschnitt ihrer Show gesehen (denke, das sollte man tun, gibt es auch im Internet, wenn man das Buch lesen will). Sie ist natürlich faszinierend in dieser Mischung aus Bling & Big Hair und spirituelles Medium - aber durch ihre mitfühlende, sympathische Art ist sie für mich so glaubwürdig, dass ich es faszinierend finde zu sehen, was und wie sie macht, was sie macht. Ich denke immer noch, sie könnte das vielleicht schaffen, indem sie schlicht eine so große Empathie-Fähigkeit hat, dass sie Gedanken lesen kann dadurch und nicht WIRKLICH mit den Toten Kontakt aufnimmt. Da bin ich mir nicht ganz sicher. Aber ich bin mir sicher, dass sie es ernst meint und dadurch, dass ihre Wirkung so heilend für die Menschen ist, ist es vielleicht auch egal. Ihr Buch war spiritueller und religiöser als ich erwartet habe, aber sehr schön zu lesen und sehr persönlich und dabei sehr unterhaltsam! Sie ist "trotz" ihres katholischen Glaubens, absolut offen für alle Religion und nicht verurteilend - das ist einfach toll und macht sie sehr stark und überzeugend. Ich lese eigentlich, seit meiner Zeit mit 14 nach meiner "Nebel von Avalon Phase" keine spirituelle Literatur - aber nach dem Buch dachte ich, vielleicht mal damit anzufangen.

HASH(0x97c4e588) von 5 Sternen This woman is AWESOME. 2. Oktober 2013
Von Jsea - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
As a self-professed spirit junkie, I've read dozens of books on 'the other side (Van Praag, Edwards, Anderson, and Williams, Virtue to list a few). I am a big fan of Teresa's show. However, I was a bit scared that this book was going to be a rehashing of the show's content. I was hoping for something deeper, and I was very pleasantly surprised when I finished the book. TC does a great job of covering the various "behind the scenes" segments on how she communicates with the other side. She also delves into what she believes happens to us when we cross over, as well as a general structure of heaven. She goes over Life Lessons, angels, spirit guides and reincarnation in a way that the sprit novice could understand. She goes over why she believes we're here on earth, and also explains how we can also communicate with spirit. (Not to say that we will be at her level, because she feels mediumship is genetic). I love her even more after reading her book. Unlike some authors I've read on the topic, her humbleness really comes through. I really hope that her mainstream appeal will help open the door for more people to embrace spirituality. Five stars all the way.

HASH(0x97c551c8) von 5 Sternen Wonderful- Humble, Entertaining 3. Oktober 2013
Von Stacy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I've listened to this book on audible.com over the past two days and I must say that I am so pleased. I read and study a lot of mediums and Theresa is wonderful. She is humble and very caring. She does not have an ego. Theresa has helped so many people understand the true gift of mediumship and has provided loving/caring messages from our loved ones on the other side. I have seen Theresa in person twice now, and she is incredibly good. This book is appropriate for people who know very little about the subject, to experts. Thank you Theresa for enlightening so many. While she doesn't care if you believe her, she truly does care about the people and the messages she delivers. Highly recommend and thank you Theresa for writing this book.

HASH(0x97c4eca8) von 5 Sternen Unexpectedly Wonderful 30. Oktober 2013
Von agapegirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Theresa's TV series is touching and funny, but not real deep, so I didn't have high hopes for her memoir to have much substance. Was I wrong! Along with her co-writer, Theresa has written an engaging, deeply spiritual book that is appropriate for anyone who is interested in knowing more about why we are all going through this human experience.
I love her candid matter-of-fact knowingness about God and the non-physical part of our journey. I actually got emotional when she admitted that this is her last incarnation - she has evolved to the point of learning all the lessons on earth that she needs to, and upon her transition she will remain in spirit.
Which brings up some interesting thoughts... We are all trying to evolve - to become better human beings, learning the lessons of love and caring for our fellow man. Looking at Theresa, knowing what she has revealed in this book, you realize what is truly important in life. It's not having the best fitness, or the most rewarding career, or the best education. Life really is about reaching out to others, acknowledging their pain, sharing a smile and some kind words, reassuring them that all is well, etc. WWJD, as they say. Well, she is doing it.
There's so much focus in the TV show on proving over and over that "she's the real deal", but that misses the point. She has hugely important spiritual lessons to teach us - that is where the producers need to focus.
We're lucky to be alive to see this lady do what she does so well - what a treat!
