'Those who pass on can and do return to prove their survival and leave on record for centuries, their portraits' ~Paul Miller
I was given a reading by Courtney Lind. I have known her for years and she is a trusted friend. The Spirit that came through was my Great Grandmother Mama Cuca, Refugia Leal Quintanilla. Courtney explained that she has been watching over me since my birth. After discussing some spirit messages, Mama Cuca decided it was time to do a drawing.
The outcome was unbelievable! She drew her as I knew her from the one remaining photo that my family has. The similarity was remarkable right down to the detail of her dress, earrings, & the photo being "off center."
It was a comfort to know that I have Mama Cuca standing beside me, gently guiding and watching over my life.
I believe Courtney has a gift to share. She is a wonderful woman who has a loving light that shines from within.
I feel grateful as well as blessed to have had this reading. I know that through Courtney, I can always communicate with Spirit.
Sincerely with Peace & Gratitude
Thank you so much for our reading last night! I've shown my friends the picture that you drew of my grandfather. They couldn't believe it! You have such an amazing talent that is so rare!
They all want readings.

I went through my pictures and this is the only photo I have of my Great grandfather on my moms, moms side. His name is Herman Granlund from Finland. He also joined WW2 in 1940. He was born in August maybe why the number 8 came through?? I really enjoyed your reading, it helped me get through this grieving period over my mother. She was and is a very loving lady as you can tell.. Thank you very much.
"Courtney blew me away with her drawing! We were speaking about my feeling unsure about a particular career path that presented itself to me - and then Courtney's face lit up - and she began drawing a picture... when she finished, she turned the illustration to me and asked if I recognized this person. It was my best friend Paige who died suddenly at 33. The eye's and mouth were unmistakeable. Courtney then told me that this person she drew (which by the way, she had never met, seen a picture or ever heard me talk about) wanted me to know that she's with me - always. That was extremely comforting. Courtney has an amazing gift.... "

When I first met Courtney in a mediumship circle, she started drawing my grandma, who is one of my guides. I could not believe my eyes when I saw the drawing. Unbelievable and precise description of her. Her gifts and skills are "out of this world." -Mikel

. Courtney I believe I found pictures of the 2 relatives you sketched on Sunday for us. I showed my family and they all believe that there a match.
The lady is my aunt Rafaela and the gentleman is my brother in law my sisters husband who passed away about 10 years ago. she was a non believer but I think she believes he's trying to send her a message.
That was such awesome mediumship. I am still amazed you were able to do that and draw whoever ever came through which was my Grandma on my dad's side. Here in the photo attached with this message.. Amazing gift that you have Courtney. I hope to see you again. Not sure if it's sooner or later but for sure I would like to come again and communicate with my family members/angels when I need it again. I enjoyed talking with you during our session together. So see you again another time! *:) happy
You did this drawing at the event you had with Debbie way back in June. At that time I thought it might be my grandmother. However, it's been a good 30 years since she passed and probably 40 years since I last saw her in person. I have probably only five or six pictures of her. In scanning pictures over the holidays I came across this one of her. It's a pretty good likeness to your drawing.
Thanks so much for what you do, and I only wish that I could explain the sense of peace I feel after seeing you and Debbie do your thing!Take care,
I consider my experience with Courtney’s medium abilities amazing!! I was expecting my 2nd child, a boy, on June 28. She happened to be in town visiting her sister in PA, and I stopped by to see them after an appointment. I have only met Courtney a handful of times and she was already having feelings about the baby, and seeing what he would look like and when he was coming. This was a Thursday afternoon, and she kept telling me she was seeing something about Sunday. I thought yeah right, it was only June 7th! She also said he would have lighter hair than my daughter’s, and everything was going to be very peaceful. Well, wouldn’t you know on June 10, - Sunday morning at 2am, the contractions started. I was in hardly any pain, as opposed to my first birth experience. We went to the hospital, where her sister kept her in the loop on my progression. She probably didn’t need to though, because she had already predicted the day my baby would be born, and then she told me he would be born at 7pm. At 7:02pm, we had our baby boy!! The nurses and doctors were all intrigued, and kept writing down Courtney’s visions so we could see how spot on she was after he finally arrived. I had no pain all day, and was in a true state of peace through the entire labor. She also told us that she could feel the presence of a grandmother who had passed in the room with us. My husband lost both grandmothers in the past year, something she would never know. That was of great comfort to my mother in law, to know that they were with us pushing baby Ryan through from the other side. Also, he has lighter hair than my daughter, and is a bundle of snuggles with his mama just like she said he would be. I admit I was skeptical at first, but if someone can see the day and time a baby will be born, I am a believer! Even your doctor can’t tell you that! I had such a sense of calmness, peace, and excitement, waiting to see if her visions were going to come to fruition. I had a very difficult pregnancy with a lot of fear about the actual birth of the baby. We were getting conflicting information from the doctors about when we would deliver for weeks, going back and forth on if I would need a C section, how big the baby would be, etc. which made me a ball of nerves. I will always hold the experience of seeing Courtney before the delivery very close to me, because I felt prepared knowing he was coming and that everything was going to be fine for the labor. I really believed that she had seen what was to come, and that I could lay back and await the arrival of my precious son.
As a side note, the day before my son was 4 weeks old he was admitted to the hospital in a whirlwind for what turned out to be Group B Strep Septicemia, and a blood clot to boot. We spent 2 weeks in the hospital, a very trying time for my husband and me, and for our whole family. I was terrified of losing my precious gift. When Courtney heard some details of what was going on, she messaged me to say that he was going to be fine and was on the mend. That turned out to be true, and although I still had fear because of the situation, I thought I am going to trust what she said because she has seen my baby and me through the birth already, and was able to have a sense of peace again trusting in her knowing he would make it through. I am blessed to say he is now 10 weeks old and we are so in love with my little chubby prince!!
I'm Jonel Dlugos from last Thurs. Mediumship class. I just wanted to thank you again for bringing forth my Grandparents. That was soooo special.
You saw my one Grandfather in overalls on a farm with a pitch fork. I talked to my Dad & he said his Dad did live on a farm when he was young- they did shovel hay & he always wore overalls back then.")
You also mentioned you saw all kinds of airplanes . I forgot to tell you that was my Mom's Dad who worked McDonald Douglas making airplanes. Also you saw Indian heritage / Shaman heavily around me. My Mom's great grandmother was pychic & had an Indian spirit guide.
What is a Spirit Guide?
Spirit guides are ascended souls also refereed to as guardian angels. These special spirits are assigned to us before we are born. They gently guide us through our lives, helping us make the right choices for our souls journey.
They are the little voice of intuition, they are your childhood invisible friend. The voice that tells you not to walk down that dark alley. They represent that warm feeling when you meet your soul mate, or that bad feeling when you go for that job interview that is not right for you.
We all have spirit guides, many of them. Some are with us our whole lives, while others are with us temporarily to assisted with different goals and projects. Spirit guides can be our Great Great Grandparents, they can be famous painters, musicians or religious icons of the past. As a spirit portrait artist, I am able to take their loving energy and put faces and names to them.
These portraits represent some of my spirit guides, and the guides of my family and friends.
The spirit world is amazing! They can show us wonderful things. Things we would never expect!
This portrait represents the life of a man still living. His son lost his life just one week before this portrait was drawn. These types of drawings occur, when a spirit personis trying to let their loved ones know they are at peace and made it home.

Spirit portrait art is an extraordinary gift. Each portrait here represents a beloved grandmother. These strong and bold women provided comfort and never ending love to their family during their lives. In death, they return to further prove their soul's survival.
Here are their portraits, the photo's that match were provided after the drawing was done.
"The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering." ~en okri
This section of portraits represent the amazing images of individuals who lost their lives to early. A helicopter crash, a car accident, suicide, cancer, sudden illness and sudden death. These people were aunts and uncles, son's, brothers, sisters, mothers, and fathers. These souls like butterfly's, set everything that was once known aside to embrace an entire new way of being.
The lesson of the butterfly is letting go of the old and embrace the new. They teach us to go with the flow, and not take life to seriously. These souls like the butterfly, guide us on a journey to freedom of the past, and lead us to our higher self.

Our grandfather's built our family's foundation. Grandfather's shape our futures for generations to come. I have found that no matter how well you knew your grandfather, they continue to watch over their families, and are eager to continue growing and learning with each new generation.
This section are spirit portraits of much loved grandfathers. With respect and love, here are their portraits.
The photo comparisons were provided after the drawings were done.

With much love and gratitude. Here are portraits of beloved Mom's and Dad's.
What is Mediumship?
Mediumship is the ability to communicate with people who have passed on from this life to the next. Bridging the gap between the two worlds, spiritual medium's are able to open up their energy centers, Chakras. Simultaneously tuning into our natural sixth senses to send and receive message form those who have passed. Every living thing is made up of energy. When we return to spirit form, our energy and personality stay the same. We simple shed our physical body, sending our bright, colorful light, our souls, to the spirit world.
Communication with the spirit world takes time, practice, and patience. Every communication is different, as each medium and spirit, use their own individual personalities and life experiences to communicate. I like to describe it as tuning into a radio station. Each side of life has to adjust there energy lower or higher, meeting in the middle for the clearest communication.
Have you heard of having 'six sense'? These natural form of senses are called:
Clairvoyance- clear seeing, seeing images like a day dream inside or outside your body.
Clairaudience- clear hearing, hearing the voice of the spirit world inside your inner ear, sometimes outside.
Clairsentience- clear feeling, receiving messages as an emotion or physical sensation in your body.
Claircognizance- clear knowing, just knowing something as fact, intuition.
Clairgustation- tasting, feeling like you just tasted your mom's chocolate chip cookies.
Clairolfaction- smelling, smelling grandma's perfume suddenly, or grandpa's old cherry pipe tobacco.
The spirit world is not above us or below, its all around us, separated by different dimensions. Its a place of pure love, acceptance and healing. It is time less, and holds no boundary. Mediumship can proved endless hope, comfort and healing to both sides of life.
What is Spirit Portrait art?
Spirit portrait art is on of the more rare forms of mediumship. This unique form of communication allows spirit to work through a medium, and under there influence draws extremely accurate portraits of loved one's that have passed to spirit form. These amazing portraits are a lasting gift, providing proof of the souls survival, and more importantly that we are never alone in our journey.
What to expect when receiving a spirit portrait?
The spirit world is highly intelligent. The messages and portraits that come through are for the greatest healing and intention of the person receiving.
It is not always clear, whom is being drawn. Many times It is unclear if they are male or female till half the drawing is done. They often present their younger self. Or present themselves during a favorite age or time in their life. Portraits often resemble a photo that you might own, including the outfit. Sometimes you might see two different souls in one picture, and other times, you might just see it in the eyes.
All of this depends on the strength of the connection between medium and spirit.
How to prepare for a mediumship reading?
To have the best experience possible, come to your session with on open mind and a positive outlook. Leave all your worries and fears behind, have no expectations. Invite your friends and family in spirit to be present. Just by thinking of the person you want to communicate with is an invitation for them to join. As a medium, we can never be sure who is going to come through. The stronger spirits usually start the process, then assist other communication. Remember to always have fun with your readings.
Mediumship can offer endless amounts of joy, comfort, peace, and enlightenment.
These portraits represent images of souls unclaimed.
