As a child, Doris Strode grew up with stories of her mother's clairvoyant experiences. This prompted an interest in spiritualism which has guided her life. After joining a 'development circle' she learned to improve her natural gift and become a vessel for spirit guides. Here she reflects on her life and the spiritual fulfillment offered by psychic meditation. She describes several of the spirit guides she has encountered and includes her own detailed paintings of them. 'There is always a purpose and reason for being on the Earth plane; a learning planet.' In How I Became A Psychic Artist, Doris Strode shares some of her enlightenment with those of an open mind.
