Automatic writing is the process, or product, of writing material that does not come from the conscious thoughts of the writer. The writer's hand forms the message, and the person is unaware of what will be written. It is sometimes done in a trance state. Other times the writer is aware (not in a trance) of their surroundings but not of the actions of their writing hand



Case stories


Sometime prior to 1900, William Stainton Moses, a respected priest and teacher, experimented with automatic writing. His beliefs were orthodox Christian, but the messages from his automatic writing took a more open, undogmatic view, to which he converted over time. He believed the message originated from higher spirits.

John B. Newbrough was a New York dentist who wrote the book Oahspe through the process of automatic writing on the newly invented typewriter in 1882.

Rosemary Brown was an English housewife who automatically composed music. She could play the piano, though not very well. She felt that great composers were writing through her.

Elsa Barker in 1914 published a collection of letters that she had produced by automatic writing. She claimed the letters came from the deceased Judge David Patterson Hatch. Her book was reprinted in 2004 as Letters From The Afterlife: A Guide to the Other Side.

George (Georgie) Hyde-Lees ,the wife of William Butler Yeats, is said to have been able to write automatically. This led her husband to think in mystical terms.

Use in spiritual movements


Automatic writing is used in Spiritualism, Spiritism and the New Age movement as a form of channeling. One of the best-known automatic writers was Hélène Smith, an early 20th-century psychic who felt that her automatic writing was the attempt of Martians to communicate with Earth. She claimed she could translate their Martian language into French. Another well-known author, Neale Donald Walsch, wrote the book series Conversations with God, claiming to have used automatic writing to speak with God. The Brazilian medium Chico Xavier was probably the most prolific medium in the 20th Century and possibly of all time, with more than 400 books written by him.





Use in therapy


Automatic writing is used as a tool in Freudian psychology and in related "self-knowledge" studies, where it is seen as a means of gaining insight into the mind of the automatic writer through their subconscious word choices.

It was primarily used by Pierre Janet in France, and later by Morton Prince and Anita Mühl in the United States

Use in stimulating creativity

André Breton pioneered the use of automatic writing within the Surrealist movement and produced several important pieces while using the technique, most famously Soluble Fish. The ideas of Hélène Smith, the so-called "Muse of Automatic Writing", also influenced the Surrealist movement (in the Surrealist deck of cards, Smith is the "Genius of Knowledge").

Automatic writing became a part of the Surrealists' repertoire of games, and it soon developed into a number of other Surrealist games and tools that greatly influenced the movement, such as automatic drawing, automatic palimpsest, and a variety of marker-word games. (See Surrealist automatism.)

John Frusciante dedicated an entire musical album to the process of automatic writing, claiming that "music is just there and we, as musicians, are sucked into it's [sic] swirling energy".

Free writing later gained popularity with writers and poets, both as a means of stimulating creative thought and as a technique for overcoming writer's block.

Nergal of the Blackened Death Metal band Behemoth claims to have written the song "Libertheme" from The Apostasy through Automatic Writing.

Doodling is a form of automatic writing as it is generally not consciously focused writing. Many people doodle spirals which are associated with Sacred Geometry.

We attempt automatic writing for several reasons. First - to get information about our personal life. Second - to confirm something from some who exists on the other side or has deceased.

The answers can be surprising ... but always be cautious as with any tool of divination chosen - such as the ouija board.

If you have emotional problems - you may not like the messages that come through. Your consciousess - being in lower frequency due to emotional problems will attract a lower frequency entity.

If you like drama - and consider your life to be in drama - don't channel.

When attempting automatic writing you may use a writing implement, computer, or any other means of communicating through the written word. Many people prefer the computer as they can type quickly without filtering the information coming through. When reread - even a typo can mean something.

To divert the focus of the writer - shifting from left brain logical thinking - to right brain intuitive thinking - take a pencil in hand, place it against a piece of paper as if about to write something. Then turn your attention to something else, such as watching television, reading a book, or talking with someone. For many people, their hand will write coherent material.

Much of this goes to 'control' and have much you are willing to give to a non-physical entity.

The amount of time spent on automatic writing can vary with the person and the session.

Words, sentences or whole paragraphs may appear. Often, the writing is illegible - the text appearing jumbled - without proper grammar or punctuation - mostly run-on sentences.

Messages can be written in a language - or hand writing style - not recognized by the writer and signed by someone unknown.

A picture or symbol may be written.

Some automatic writers know who is giving the messages while others do not. If the energies feel comfortable to you then you will soon learn who the entity is and why he/she is writing with you.

If you feel the least bit uncomfortable with the entity or the information received STOP!

Let all information flow! Do not stop to think about - or process - what you are writing / typing.

If you feel that more than one entity is trying to write through you - ask them to take their time and you will write with them one at a time. Always get a name.

Some of the best works of literature have come through channeled writing.

Zoroaster - my Spirit Guide has written many of the columns in Crystalinks.

When I do readings with clients, I usually sit with a pen and pad and often find myself writing names or doodling images or symbols.

The best way to know if the information received is valid is to check the validity of what is given.

If you feel uncomfortable stop! If automatic writing is a good tool for you - you will know right (write) away!

                                                          Getting Started





Get into a comfortable position. Today you will be seated at your computer.

Be sure you are free of distractions.

If you are not alone---tell others that you have some personal correspondence to take care of!

If you are tired --this could actually work better for you.

Now clear your mind of chatter. Feel the muscles in your body--neck--arms--shoulders-- especially your face--totally relaxed . . .

You are going to use your computer to talk to your guide.

Know that whatever the answer is to your questions will be written by the spirit.

Do not allow time for your mind to listen to this information. Just type. You may even want to focus your eyes on something near the computer which keeps the left brain busy while it right brain does the channeling.

It may seem like your own thoughts at first but that is OK. It will get easier and quicker especially if you are on a computer.

This takes practice.

You are ready to begin



 

Gently place your finger on the keyboard. You are relaxed and not concerned about what you will type.

Type today's date at the top of your page.

Mentally call one of your guides and tell him / her you want to communicate with the computer. Tell them you can only work with one guide at a time. You may select the guide - or perhaps it is their choice. Not all guides use automatic writing to communicate.

On the first day you must get to know who your guide is.

Type, "Hello. What is your name?"

Follow with questions about the spirit guide and his relationship with you.

I would suggest you start with simple questions that can be answered with a 'yes or no' answer.


Don't stop to think. Just allow your fingers to type the answer.

This is a time to get to know your guide and why he / she is working with you at this time.

After a few minutes you will find yourself typing more quickly. There may be mistakes in punctuation - no space between words - poor grammar - unknown words - whatever. This is not important! You can fix the typos later.

Just keep typing questions and answers.

Do not write too much on the first day. Just start slowly and feel comfortable.

You can begin again whenever you like. There is no schedule requirements. Each experience will make you more comfortable.

On the second day you can ask questions that are beyond 'yes or no' answers and get more details.

I would suggest you not ask about your love life until you are comfortable with the spirit and this form of mediumship. This is much easier when the questions are not about you.

On the second day - ask spirit (you should now have a name) - about your spiritual work - relationship with the guide - other spiritual questions.

On the third day - ask about global matters - earth changes - changes in the Millennium - other.

On the fourth day - begin personal questions but remember you can only ask a question once. Asking a question over and over again until you type your desired answer - is wrong.

Ex. "Does - - - - love me?"

If the answer is No ! Then so be it!

Change question to - "Will I find a true love? Marry? Etc."

This equates to finding a psychic reader who will tell you what you want to hear not what is the truth. The more you use automatic writing, the easier and faster it gets. Remember to save your notes!

There is a poet in each of us. The emotional body expresses itself through the art of poetry. Sometimes we write as we feel, thus allowing our pain to come through and be released.
