Stanislav Grof’s book “When the Impossible Happens” includes a chapter about Luiz Antonio Gasparetto, a psychologist from Brazil who is able to enter a trance state and paint in the style of a wide range of famous painters. Here are just some of the famous painters that he channels: Monet, Picasso, Rembrandt, da Vinci, Modigliani, Manet, van Gogh, Gauguin.
As well as painting exact replicas of these artists’ known work, he paints “new motifs rendered in easily recognizable styles of individual artists”. Dr. Grof describes how they turned off all the lights except for one small red light over the paper so that Gasparetto couldn’t distinguish color. At times Gasparetto would paint two different paintings together and even did one upside down under the table with his right foot. Loyd Auerbach who was present at one of the demonstrations writes: “The climax of the demonstration was when he did four paintings at once: one with each hand, one with each bare foot (these being done under the table at which he was seated), while his eyes were closed and he carried on a conversation. Each of the four paintings was by a different spirit artist.
I remember once meditating and asking my guides for assistance with a project. Hearing the response “who would you like to help you?”, I laughed and answered “Leonardo da Vinci please”. Strangely enough, just twenty minutes later my cousin came home with a children’s figurine of Leonardo da Vinci and said “I don’t know why, but I just felt that I should buy this kid’s figurine for you”.
Trance Mediumship enables the medium to allow a spirit to channel through their physical body. This is quite a rare and complex form of mediumship which should not be undertaken without the proper training. However, when undertaken with the right instruction, guidance, and ability, trance mediumship can provide astounding evidence of the soul’s continued existence.
Take a moment to watch this incredible demonstration of trance mediumship by Luiz Gasparetto himself:
