He claimed to talk with his mother's spirit for some years.

One of his memorial school compositions on the centenary of the independence of Brazil won an honorable mention in a state contest. In 1. 92. 2 he faced skepticism from colleagues and friends, who accused him of plagiarism, such accusation lasted all his life. Challenged to prove his gifts, Francisco was submitted to the challenge of improvising an essay (with the help of a spirit) about sand grain, the topic was chosen at that very moment, in which, he succeeded.

In 1. 92. 4, he finished primary school and never went back to school. He was hired as a sales clerk working extended hours.

Brazilian Spiritualist Federation) The compilation of poetry dictated by spirits of Brazilian and Portuguese poets achieved enormous impact in the Brazilian press and public opinion, and yet caused strong polemic among the ones involved with Brazilian literature, whose opinions were divided between recognition and accusations of pastiche. The impact increased even more when it was revealed that the books had been written by a "humble clerk" from a warehouse in the countryside of Minas Gerais (Brazilian state where the medium was born), who had barely finished primary school. It is said that the spirit of his mother advised him not to respond to the criticism. The copyrights of all his books were kindly granted to FEB. At that period, he started a relationship with Manuel Quintão e Wantuil de Freitas. Still at the same period, an ocular cataract was found, problem which he had to live with for the rest of his life.
