Automatic Spirit Writing

Get a free psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comMany mediums and psychics make us of some form of automatic writing or psychography. Automatic writing is a form of channeling that helps psychics, mediums and healers to step outside of themselves and disconnect from their own feeling and thinking patterns, and receive spiritual messages.

I believe that all great works of music, complete books, and other forms of art, are all inspired by spirit in a similar way. Yes, not only do we receive answers to pressing questions, or receive spiritual insights through some form of channeling, but also significant art works, or even poetry come to us in this way.

Originally automatic writing was done using a planchette with a pencil and two wheels. The text a planchette produces can be tricky to decipher, and so a pen or pencil and paper became the preferred method. Spiritual practice always seems to keep up with technology and these days spirit writing using a computer keyboard has become equally popular!

Why these words were suddenly being gifted to me, and were being heard and channeled through, from the depths of my Soul – remains another unanswered question in my life. But, all I can say is that as soon as I began to receive them, I soon recognized them for what they were, and I was immediately compelled to put pen to paper, and to begin auto-writing them down ~ Eleesha

If you are keen to take some time out to develop your own automatic writing skills, find a comfortable, calming space and aim to put 30 minutes or so aside for this activity.

The actual writing can be done by hand, or with the use of a keyboard should you find that easier or faster. If you do use pen and paper, use paper with a pleasing texture, and a favorite pencil or pen. Using one’s non-dominant hand is recommended, but for me, my dominant hand works just fine.

Be as relaxed as possible, sitting in a comfortable position. I prefer to close my eyes. I then call upon my guides, my Angels and my Ancestors to assist me with this channeled session in writing. I also ask for accurate information from only the purest source and for my highest good.

As with any energy work, it’s important to invoke psychic protection when you open yourself up to spirit’s influence. Several years ago, I learned a hard lesson in omitting this practice of psychic protection. I had just completed a psychic circle session with a group, and was asked if we could try and re-connect with spirit for additional information. I thought I would be smart and not invoke the shield of white light of protection. Huge mistake! We actually attracted a dark energy that channeled some vulgar and scary information to us. Do not take the necessity of spiritual protection lightly.

When you are ready to start writing, create a 90-degree angle at your elbow, and maintain your hand holding the pencil or pen resting on the paper. If you are using a keyboard, aim to create the same effect.

You can either ask for a question to be answered, or just wait to see what information spirit surprises you with. Whatever the message may be, always say thank you after each piece of information is given, as a sort of acknowledgment. Genuine responses from spirit will be clear, and on the short side, as opposed to garbled. These messages will also never contain fearful content.

In many ways, doing automatic writing is like being ‘in the flow’ while writing. If you’re a writer then you will know what I’m talking about when I say ‘in the flow’.  It’s the state when you have many creative ideas and they all seem to fit together quite nicely, and you can transcribe them coherently and quickly – and often it feels quite exciting. ~ Anna Sayce

If nothing happens, remember to breathe and try to relax. Take three deep breaths and hold each breath for a few seconds, before exhaling very slowly. Simply wait and see what happens. Persistence will pay off as you become adept at automatic writing.

Because automatic writing is an unconscious activity, flow and spontaneity tend to be destroyed by any conscious interest. After a while the words, letters or shapes will begin to appear. Don’t give up.

When the inspired writing begins to flow through your arm and fingertips, you may have various reactions. Some people feel a sudden jerky movement of the fingers as the words initiate. Others literally feel as if they are being seized by an invisible force mid-arm.

Both noise and movement from the writing instrument can become quite intense! I have witnessed a psychic experiencing what looked like an electric shock down his arm, as he was delivering a message as part of his session reading for me. It was impressive, but I could never decipher the scribble inspired by his guide after the reading.

A session might bring up buried emotions, so don’t be surprised if you are weary afterwards. As soon as you feel tired, stop, take three deep breaths, say thank you three times. Continue on another day.
