Automatic writing is an amazing way to channel your higher self, spirit guides and passed loved ones. It's when you allow spirit to communicate through you and allow your unconscious mind to take over your writing. This form of writing is a great way to tap into your higher wisdom and a wonderful way to allow your true essence to surface.
Believe it or not, many of us have experienced automatic writing without even realizing it. Have you ever wrote in a journal, an article, on a blog and found yourself just pouring out words as if something took over? Do you find yourself writing a piece and then unable to write it again? Have you ever created a piece of art but unable to create the same work again?
Here are some tidbits on how to get started:
Setting The Tone
- Light a candle
- Start with a mini-meditation
- Try visualization and breathing techniques
- Call forth your angel guides and spirit guides. Ask for their guidance
The crown chakra (Sanskrit: Sahasrara) is located at the top of the head. It is known as the *open door* where spiritual awareness is received. Connecting to our energy fields/chakras is an easy task. Close your eyes and focus on the area above your head. Visualize a white light surrounding the area similar to a Halo. Release any thoughts and simply allow yourself to envision a beaming white light.
Ask and you shall receive:
Ask your angel guides to surround you in a white bubble for protection and keep a Black Tourmaline or Black Onyx near your area. With any type of meditation and spiritual work, share your intentions with the universe and spirit guides. Release your ego and allow the answers to come through.
The Writing Process:
On a piece of paper or computer, write a question (I prefer handwritten myself). Allow the information to download and flow with ease without taking pen off the paper. Try not to think too hard and write down what comes to mind: even if it's one word, write it down.
There are several ways to do automatic writing. One is allowing spirit to communicate through you or it can be used as a meditative state (I prefer the meditative state) where you write down what you feel and hear intuitively: your higher self. Similar to meditation, you simply let go of idle chatter and thoughts as you allow your inner self-awareness to take over.
Automatic writing in a nutshell is simply writing without thinking. Everyone has their own way of doing this kind of work; find a system that works best for you. If you fear or don't have any desire to allow spirit to communicate through you, the meditative state writing is a great alternative.
