In the book, The Messengers, psychographed by Francisco C. Xavier, and inspired by the Spirit Andre Luiz, there is a passage where Andre enters a building and spots a large canvas which depicts the martyrdom of Saint Denis. Saint Denis was an apostle to the Franc world (modern-day area of France), who had been sacrificed during the early years of Christianity.(The Messengers, 2005, p. 77).
Andre Luiz was astounded, he had seen a painting that looked exactly like the one in the building, back on earth. It was created by the famous French painter Leon Bonnat. Andre is told this is a reproduction, then he replies, “As I understand, the original is on display at the Pantheon in Paris.” (The Messengers, 2005, p. 77).
Andre is then told the real story;
“No, my friend. You’re mistaken. Not all the wonderful expressions of art are original creations of incarnate artists. It’s true there are marvelous works of art originated by incarnate humans; however, in the case of this painting, the story is quite different. The painting was idealized and

created by a Christian artist in a spiritual community closely connected with France. At the end of the last century, the talented painter of Bayonne, Leon Bonnat visited that spiritual community in the spirit realm during his sleep, on a night when he was particularly inspired. He had what any incarnate individual would call a wonderful dream. From the first moment he saw the painting in his dream visit, he was determined to reproduce it. He then produced a copy, which, although it pales when compared to the original, became famous all over the world.”(The Messengers, 2005, p. 77).
Andre’s friend explains to him that creative geniuses on earth are inspired by the Spirit realm. He tells Andre, “Nobody creates without seeing, hearing, fully sensing. The artists of superior mentality do see, hear and sense the high expressions which reflect the path which leads to God.”(The Messengers, 2005, p. 78).
