I love automatic writing. It’s like meditation with a pen. Automatic writing helps you access your Higher Self to glean insight, guidance and a path towards healing.
It’s quite simple to do. Get a tablet of paper and something to write with. Pen, pencil, crayon, marker, anything. I don’t recommend poking your finger. It leaves a scar and might make you anemic if you have a lot to write about.
Find a quiet space where you can be undisturbed for a period of time. That means no people and no phone. It should be comfortable and have someplace to put your paper. Begin as though you were going to meditate. Close your eyes. Breathe through your nose and out through your mouth. Four counts in; eight counts out. Your parasympathetic nervous system will kick in and you will relax. You should be able to access your heart center, which will connect you to your Guardian Angels and the Universe. You will also be able to access your feelings. Now open your eyes and pick up your writing instrument.
Write down the first question you need guidance on. Maybe it’s “why do I feel so out-of-sorts?”. Continue breathing and write down the first thought that comes into your mind. “I’m really upset that so-and-so said that to me”. Write down the next thought. Keep asking questions and writing answers and it will soon feel like your hand can’t keep up with your thoughts. That is automatic writing and you are accessing guidance. Continue until there is nothing else coming out of you.
Rest for a moment before you begin reading. Flex and massage your hand if it feels cramped. Ask yourself how you feel. Do you feel lighter, more sure of yourself? Now pick up those pages and read. Did you get the guidance you needed? Do you feel enlightened?
If this is your first attempt and you just wrote a bunch of gibberish, don’t be disappointed. Sometimes our ego gets in the way and keeps us from seeing what we need. Maybe next time just try meditation so you can practice letting your thoughts scroll through your head. Maybe just write down your thoughts like a diary. As with anything, it just takes practice. Before long, you will be able to write your light.
