Prior to going to the shower, Theresa was a bit apprehensive, not knowing if her appearance and/or any connections she might make would be welcomed, but the guests appeared to be entertained by Theresaâ€™s bold and say-it-as-it-is Jersey style.
Theresa immediately makes a connection with the future mother-to-be, who lost her father five years ago. Theresa tells her, â€śyour dad is beamingâ€ť about the upcoming babyâ€™s arrival. Then she states the most obvious, telling her that her father knows of her conversations about naming the baby after him â€” either a first name or middle name. Disbelievers arenâ€™t impressed with that revelation. She says that this is just the â€śspirit acknowledging appreciation of that.â€ť No big shocker there.
Next up, however, Theresa shows off her skills a bit better. Theresa targets a vulnerable, shy maybe twenty-something girl who can barely pull it together when she tells her that her grandmother is coming through. â€śDid you use to draw for her?â€ť she asks. Having difficulty controlling her emotions, she acknowledges she drew a lot of pictures for her. â€śDo you like to sing? Because sheâ€™s telling me youâ€™re a very good singer.â€ť Theresa goes on to console her, telling her that even though her grandmother couldnâ€™t communicate back with her, she wanted her to know that she heard her sing and read to her and it brought her great joy. She tells the girl to embrace the gift, that her grandmother is watching over her, and when she feels her spirit that it’s actually her.Â And with that the girl is comforted.
For some physical activity, Theresa takes a belly dancing class with her cousin. On break, Theresa is visited by another spirit who labors her breathing. She quickly approaches one of the other class members and blurts, â€śwho passed because they couldnâ€™t swallow or their throat was filling up with a fluid?â€ť The reluctant fifty-something woman tells her it was her husband. â€śDid you find the old records of your husbandâ€™s?â€ť Freaked out, the woman shares that her husband had a large record collection and that she was just going through it. Theresa tells her that her husband was there with her when she did that and he wants to thank you for holding his hand and talking to him while he was dying, because of that he wasnâ€™t afraid to die. The spirit goes on to communicate through Theresa that his wife gave him such a beautiful life and heâ€™s eternally grateful. And with that, a peaceful feeling falls over Theresa and the woman, and her job is done.
