I've always been artistic and creative, but, I've never really used this gift properly, that is...... up until 3 months ago. I joined a spiritualist development circle in January 2011. I found that I could receive messages from spirit and could see animals around people. Then, in March I was told by a medium that I could do spiritual art, so I practised this and found that I could draw spirit portraits. Sometimes they would be spirit guides and sometimes they were loved ones who had passed over into the spirit world. So far, I have done 44 spirit portraits since March and thought it would be a great idea to share the drawings, along with the messages that came with them in a book. I hope this will inspire other people, even if it's just the curious ones amongst us.
