One of the definitions of ‘unraveled’ at Dictionary.com says, “to separate or disentangle the threads of.” That is sort of what was going on within the threads of Long Island medium, Theresa Caputo, after she stayed in a haunted hotel.
Of course, everyone is familiar with Theresa Caputo. She has had a highly popular television show on the TLC network for the last couple of years called, Long Island Medium. Looking at information about the show we read;
“Theresa is a typical Long Island mom who has a very special gift. She talks to the dead. While Theresa helps other families find closure and peace, her own family occasionally get annoyed by her inability to turn this gift “off”.
Each week viewers can tune in to see Caputo talk with both believers and skeptics as she leads them through supernatural readings where the dead are contacted. About her ability, Caputo is quoted as saying;
“Things are just there. When I was younger I used to actually see images and hear things. As I got older and shut down, it had changed. Because it was frightening to see people standing there who actually weren’t there. For me now, I feel spirit. I could be in a store standing next to a woman, and her husband passed of a heart attack. I would feel as if someone was laboring my breath, like I couldn’t breathe. That’s my symbol for someone passing by the heart, chest, lung area when they labor my breathing.”
As much as she loves her work, and her family puts up with it, she does get into some spooky situations which causes the threads of her being to become a little unraveled. That was the scene in a recent episode of the program. While on the road, Theresa stays at the Padre Hotel in Bakersfield, California. This place is notorious for spirits as it’s a destination for many of the ghost hunting and paranormal investigating shows on TV today. Theresa stayed on the sixth floor of the hotel and a little girl made herself known to Theresa all night long, cutting into her sleeping time.
As morning came to a new day, Caputo started to share her unsettling night to the people of the hotel staff. It seems that she really did not get a lot of sleep that night. The little girl was quite playful. Of course, the staff wasn’t all that surprised and had much to add to Theresa’s claims of a young girl’s spirit inside this hotel. While the child’s ghost told Theresa that “they” like it here and they’re not out to scare anyone, Theresa was unsure about what she meant by “they.”
The staff of the hotel elaborated on this saying that they call them “children” as they are a bunch of little kids that like to come out and play from time to time. The spirits jiggle doorknobs and moves things, but this little girl left some evidence behind to validate that she really was there. In fact, when the staff of the hotel took Theresa to see the things that the children to, she looked like she had seen a ghost rather than just hearing them!
