So recently a friend of mine, who incidentally has very little knowledge about what I do, saw a Saturday Night Live Episode that had a Parody about the Long Island Medium. Intrigued, he started looking for info on her, & came across this link.
Long Island Medium on David Letterman Show
He sent me the link and asked me if this lady was real, and my thoughts on it.....
I have not actually seen an episode of her show, but from what I do know of her, she is real. lol. Also what she says about 'summoning' or calling in spirits of people who have passed (from this clip), is also very true. One of the questions I'm frequently asked is "I want to talk to __________ (my mother, my partner, my friend, etc....). Can you do that?". My answer is always, 'Sure, if they come.... if not I can ask about them, where they are, or what they are doing, or why they haven't come.'
We often seem to forget that not only does Spirit have FREE WILL, but they may be busy too. Just because we have died, doesn't mean we are dead! lol. Our life, our lessons, continue on in the afterlife. We keep growing. That is one of the most comforting things I know to be true about the after life..... that we are busy, that it doesn't end here and we still have things to do.
When my clients want to speak with someone in particular, I tell them to think of the person. I say to start talking to that person, and send them love. We all vibrate, and depending on where we are, we just vibrate at different frequencies (hence why I'm able to do what I do). To understand that better, I suggest you research the Natural Laws of Vibration (I'll write a blog about it soon). Reminding the person that has passed that we still need them, or love them usually helps to bring them forward when I connect to the other side. Most spirits who have completely crossed over, have the free will to check in with their loved ones whenever they want. That's why some of you will often 'suddenly' or 'out of the blue' think of someone. To be honest its not 'sudden' or 'out of the blue' at all. That person is probably right there with you, in your space, in your energy, letting you know that they are there. At some level, you've picked up their vibration, & hence why your thinking of them.
Now, since I'm already talking about Teresa Caputo, I'd like to clear something up. I have been told that on her show, she approaches people out of the blue, and gives them messages from others who have passed away (Again, I've never actually seen this show). People ask me all the time if I do this out in public. My answer is for the most part, is NO. People are almost always shocked and taken back by that response. Let me explain; First of all, I do not walk around looking for spirit all day. I have learned to turn my 'gift' off and on when needed. Secondly, approaching a complete stranger is an invasion of personal privacy (and we have strict laws about this in Canada.). Thirdly, you can put someone into an emotional tailspin by approaching them by surprise with information like that. Put yourself in their shoes, some crazy lady who claims to talk to dead people comes up out of the blue, telling you that a loved one wants to say something to you, through them........ yeah, right! lol.
Now as I said, for the most part I do not approach a complete stranger with information from their loved ones. But of course, the universe likes to tests us, so when I am approached by a spirit (someone who has passed away) to go and talk to someone who is very much alive and in my presence, I make the spirit work for it. lol. I tell the spirit that they need to have the (alive) person come & talk to me. They can come and talk to me about absolutely anything, I don't care what the subject, but that if they can get them to talk to me, I'll find a way to pass on their messages. Here is a great story in reference to this such thing...... (I've told some of you this story in short version)
I used to love to shop at the No Frills on Simcoe St because it always had the freshest produce in town (believe me, I'm a produce snob). Anyway, I like the store, but the neighborhood is older, and with that usually comes an influx of spirit. This was no exception. I was constantly approached by spirit to go and talk to someone while I was shopping for my weekly groceries. If I had Thomas with me, I usually just said no. I love my son very much, and don't ever want him to feel uncomfortable or neglected because of my work. Whenever I had the leisure to shop alone (you parent hear me on that), I always said to the spirit, 'I'm not working right now, but if you can find a way to get them to come and acknowledge me, I'll pass your message on.' One day, back in the spring, Thomas was about 16 months old and we were shopping. It was after 9 am, and the store was fairly quiet. I was standing at the end of the produce section of the store, and I had a spirit approach me. His name was 'Robert, but she called me Bobby', he was an older gentleman. He was well dressed and very polite. He asked me to go and talk to a lady (or the 'she' from earlier) that was about 3 rows over. She was also an older lady, who was well dressed. She was looking through the pears. Now, normally as I say, I just refuse, but Bobby was adamant. He pleaded with me that he really needed her to know 'she was ok'. I looked at him, and said, 'let me ask my son'. Now, my son is gifted in his own right, and me being so caught up with this spirit, didn't realize Thomas already was aware of him. I simply asked Thomas 'can Mummy talk to that lady, Sir?' (Sir is our nickname for Thomas.) as I looked in her direction. He smiled and I felt pretty confident that he knew exactly what was going on. I then said to Bobby, "Ok if you can get her to come and say anything to me, I'll do it, if not, your on your own.", still not really wanting to 'work'. Bobby left us alone at that point to continue our shopping. We mosy'd down a few isles with no sight of the lady from the produce isle or Bobby. I was in the canned vegetables isle when my darling son knocked quite a few cans of corn off the shelf. I was laughing & shaking my head, as I started picking them up when I noticed and older feminine hand handing me a a can. To my surprise, it was the lady from the produce section. She handed me the can with a smile on her face, and said 'My daughter used to do that to me all the time. How old is he? " I smiled back at her thinking, he did it, Bobby got her here..... I'd better keep up my end of the bargain. 'Thank you very much, he's 2. His name is Thomas." Who incidentally, was grinning from ear to ear.... 'My name is Truly." I offered. 'Nice to meet you Truly, I'm Isabel.' She extended her hand again. I, of course shook it. 'Isabel, this may seem like an odd question, but do you know what a Medium is?' She responded, 'No, I can't say that I do.' looking at me a bit perplexed. 'May I share with you?'. 'Yes'. 'A medium is someone who connects with people who have passed away to give their loved ones and family messages from the other side. I am a medium..... (she nods), I was in the produce section earlier and I was approached by a gentleman who says he goes by the name of Bobby, well actually Robert, but apparently you called him Bobby. (at this point the color drained from Isabel's face, and I was worried that she would faint.) He's here, now, standing beside me and wants me to tell you that he has a big smile on his face & he says 'I'm ok, and don't worry, she's fine. She's been showing me around like a tour guide'. Isabel stood there with her hand over her mouth for what seemed like an eternity, and then all of a sudden came the tears. I scrambled to find a tissue in Thomas's diaper bag (who incidentally is still smiling). She put her hand on my arm and said 'You have no idea how important it was for me to hear that. Bobby is my husband and the girl he's referring to is our daughter." Now I was in shock...... "What you don't know, is that tomorrow is the anniversary of Bobby's death. Our daughter died at the age of 5, and I don't think I've ever forgiven myself for not being there for her. At least now I know they are together." Now I was crying, Thomas was still smiling of course, nodding away, talking to Bobby..... lol. What a kid. Isabel hugged me and thanked me for the message. She told me "I had been looking for a sign from him, and I'm so very relieved to know that they are both Ok. ". All I could muster was 'Your welcome.' She patted Thomas's head, and started walking down the rest of the isle. Thomas looked up at me as if to say, 'move along, the show's over'. I shook my head and carried on with my shopping. I did not run into Isabel again that day, or any day since. I'm glad Bobby didn't give up. I'm glad he found a way to get her to come talk to me. I'm glad that my little guy was patient enough to sit through all that. But mostly I'm glad I was able to do that for all of them. Isabel, Bobby and their daughter.
Anyways, as I say the universe tests us, and Spirit has much more power than we give them credit for. With that note, I think I'm off to bed. I have so many other stories like this, and hopefully one day I'll be able to share them with you. Thanks for reading lovies.
Love & Light,
