This may sound silly, but Theresa Caputo (a.k.a. the Long Island Medium), completely changed my life one Saturday afternoon.
At the time, I was the owner of a fairly successful and super fun soap company whose tagline was, “Being Dirty Has Never Been This Much Fun.”
Cheeky, don’t you think?
Anyway, the opening day of the local farmer’s market was coming up and I had a lot of soap to make in order to be ready for the season. Normally, I would have been super (overly)
prepared at that point, but after moving out of a haunted house (read about that here) a few months prior, I had been suffering from traumatic physical ailments.
I would feel tingling all over my body (like I was being electrocuted), numbness and extreme weakness in my right arm, and sudden overwhelming bouts of
I would be fine one minute, and having a panic attack out of nowhere the next.
I had seen plenty of doctors, physical therapists, and even a neurologist, but not one of them could help me with my weird physical ailments. No diagnosis. No proper medication. Nothing.
After going through all of this for months, I was in desperation mode trying to get my soap made between the physical attacks. My awesome husband packed our toddler up for the day to give me
uninterrupted soaping time, so I flipped on the t.v. for some background noise, and got to work.
The Long Island Medium was having a marathon that day and I was casually listening as I prepared my batches. All of a sudden, I heard Theresa, the Medium, say (paraphrasing here),
“After suffering from debilitating anxiety and trying to manage it on my own, I was introduced to a spiritual healer who explained I was suppressing Spirit’s energy, which caused a lot of my
anxiety. Once I learned to channel Spirit through my Chakras, I began to heal and come into my own”
BAM. My life changed in that one moment.
Holy crap. This was it! I was not suffering from a neurological disorder! I didn’t need medication or physical therapy! I needed to pay attention to Spirit!
Spirit was literally shaking the crud out of me in order to pay attention to my gifts!
This made perfect sense to me as the symptoms started happening after the incidents in the haunted house and not before. I had always been sensitive to energy and had some
experiences with the deceased randomly in my youth and teens, but these physical ailments were new.
