Automatic writing is a fantastic way of connecting to your spirit guides and enabling your higher self to express itself through writing. It gives you the chance to transcribe your subconscious thoughts and identify what really makes you tick. Here’s our guide to mastering this amazing psychic skill:
How to get started with automatic writing
If you’d like to get started, first decide whether you’re going to do your automatic writing by hand or on a computer. Choose the option that feels most natural to you.
Start by writing a question at the top of the page. Remember that your conscious thinking mind isn’t supposed to be in charge here. It’s time to let your subconscious and intuition take control.
In a sense, automatic writing is about going with the flow and allowing creative ideas to flood the page without hesitation or self censorship. To do automatic writing well, you have to achieve a state where your mind is allowed to run freely without editing the thoughts that spill onto the page.
What are the benefits of automatic writing?
Automatic writing can have a multitude of benefits ranging from the practical to the spiritual.
In a practical sense, it can help you determine what it is in life you really want. It can help you overcome creative block and get tasks done, without worrying too much about the outcome.
In a spiritual sense, it can help you communicate with your higher self and put your conscious mind to one side. If you’re hoping to become a clairvoyant, automatic writing can help you tap into your intuition and develop your skills.
Automatic writing can also help you overcome negative emotions such as sadness, grief, anger or jealousy. By allowing your true self to do the writing for you, you can get your feelings out on paper and begin to acknowledge the emotions that are dragging you down. Sometimes, you may identify issues that you didn’t even know existed and your intuition may help you find a way to fix the problem.
