Automatic writing can be as varied as the spirits you connect with. You may find yourself able to draw things you’ve never imagined, write in a foreign tongue, or set out lines of fantastic symbols. The writing might come in the form of straightforward advice from your higher self on how to make your dreams come true. The main thing is to stay open to the experience, and try not to control what you receive. Let it happen – and analyze it afterward!
First, and most importantly, find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for 10 to 30 minutes. Then choose a pen and a notebook, preferably brand-new, that you will use only for automatic writing. If you have a burning subject you want information on, be clear and focused on that question before you begin.
Next, light some sage or incense to clear the air of unwanted influences, and to sanctify the space. It’s very important to take a moment to pray for protection – from God, angels, your guardian spirit, or whatever beneficent force you are comfortable with. Take time to truly connect with this divine energy, and get a sense that you’ve been given permission to go ahead.
Then take 10 very deep, slow breaths, drawing the air in and letting it release without strain or effort. Repeat this until you’ve achieved a deep sense of relaxation (but don’t slip away into sleep). Once you are in a relaxed, light trance, ask your guide (or inner wisdom, or whoever you’d like to call upon) to move the pen in your hand across the page.
Unless you’re a born medium, it may take around three sessions to get your hand in tune with the subtle energies of the spirit – and to still your chattering conscious mind. If your hand is making meaningless squiggles, let it do that. As with any new activity, it takes time and practice to get it right. At some point, you’ll feel as if an unseen hand has taken the pen – it will gain purposefulness and speed. And you’ll know without a doubt that you’ve made contact.
Remember that you can set your intention to receive messages about your job or your relationship, but as with any conversation, the spirit will sometimes have its own agenda. Don’t be disappointed if the conversation veers to a subject that is important to the spirit. Once it’s spoken, it will focus on your own questions.
Automatic writing is a fantastic way to develop your knowledge and abilities beyond the ordinary possibilities of daily life, and you may find that it gives you access to an extraordinary fountain of knowledge.
