What is automatic writing?
There are different explanations of what automatic writing is as there are automatic
writers. Some consider automatic writing as “channeling.” Some claim that a state of
trance is necessary to allow “spirit guides” to reach an expanded state of consciousness
to access information that otherwise will not be available. It is fascinating that some
believe that it is the higher self that engages in the communication. Others claim it is the
spirit of departed loved ones, there is the danger of a lower entity that may interfere
during the process and may even be harmful to the writer.
Isn't automatic writing a form of inspired writing that has made literary greats and artists?
It raises the question as to who are you communicating with? What is the right process to
evoke the best result? What results are expected from the session?
My automatic writing experience- What is it?
I dared sit down one evening and asked my Guide or Higher Self to clarify what automatic
writing is. Here is what I wrote and did my fingers fly on the keyboard:
Automatic writing is helpful in gaining knowledge, wisdom and information sometimes
revelations from beyond this physical world.It is a way of tapping into the higher realm of
consciousness, of thoughts, of awareness. Automatic writing is not a complicated system.
Methods are different for every individual who practices automatic writing.
Sometimes, getting prepared preconditions the brain, the mind, it does not allow for the
free flow of thoughts. It is a communication with the higher self, it is a guide, an angel ,an
entity. Is it possible to invite bad spirits? It all depends on how the individual is protected or
shielded from negative energies that are around. Yes, it is possible.
Purity of intention is important -just sit down and write. Yes it helps to have something in
mind to write about. As one gets more practice, it gets more efficient,thoughts, ideas will
flow. With the advance of computers, it becomes a little impersonal but it is efficient .
Automatic writing is not for everyone .What questions should you ask ,what do you
want to talk about, what is in your deepest thoughts that you seek, your ideas , your
dreams. To connect with your true self, automatic writing is one way.. Automatic writing
is a way to connect to the deeper strata of the subconscious. There are lots of information,
ideas, inspiration and guidance that can be accessed . Automatic writing is one method.
This is focusing on this method
Yes, it is important to clear the mind, to say a prayer
to show respect for what is about to occur. It is a communication, as such, communications
should be conducted with respect. Anticipation hinders the free flow of thought .You want
to contact a loved one from the past,yes it is possible ,but be aware that sometimes they
are not ready to contact you .You may be interfering with their state and creates a state of
unrest in them.Ideas will flow freely if one lets them .Is it your self you are communicating
with? What do you think?
As you progress in this means of accessing higher plane of consciousness, there may be
important revelations. It will have nothing to do with the material plane of existence. it will be
ideas, principles, inspired writings and a wealth of information.
This is my take on this topic.You’ve done a lot of writing, inspired topics, review and rewrite.
You have a very viable outlet for your ideas and writings on your website.This keeps your mind
occupied, it is good for you .This is just an introduction. Keep at it regularly, and it gets easier
and clearer. Pray for your inner peace and harmony.
