50-year-old celebrity psychic medium Theresa Caputo was determined to prove to the world that she was born with a special gift.
The star of reality TV series “Long Island Medium” on TLC was on “Fox & Friends” last week and she spoke about doctors testing her brain in front of cameras in an effort to show that there was something unique about her.
“They did find that I do access a part of my brain that we typically don’t and that my brain actually goes blank,” said Caputo about what the medical scans were showing while she was in a channeling state. “It’s almost like it flat lines. Like, it’s clear as I’m channeling.”
Though these results may have been surprising to others, they were not surprising to her.
“I always said that my brain doesn’t work like everyone else’s,” said the medium. “I always said since I was a young child, ‘Mom, I don’t feel right. I don’t feel like I belong. I feel different.’”
Caputo also spoke about how she didn’t fully realize her psychic gift until she was in her late 20s, early 30s. Up until that age, she thought that everyone had the same ability to speak to spirits as she did.
“I thought everyone saw what I was sensing and feeling,” she said.
Like every well-known psychic medium in the public eye, Caputo has dealt with harsh backlash from skeptics and critics who question her ability to speak with the dead but their comments don’t faze her. She insists that helping people move forward after tragedy is her goal.
“You know, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But you speak to the people that I channeled their loved ones and it has changed their lives in a positive way,” Caputo says. “And look, there are common things that spirits have me say. That’s not my fault that there are only so many different ways that people can die. Those things are common. But spirits talk about unique things that there’s no way I would know about.”
