Automatic Writing for Beginners

There are many ways to access your intuition, but my favourite so far is automatic writing. My first attempt was spectacular, I started asking random questions and  when I got to the right one, the answers came intuitively. Some describe it as telepathic or psychic dictation, others say you enter into a hypnotic state and your intuition guide your hand.  For me it was like a conversation, and I rushed to capture everything before it slipped my mind. 

There are lots of books out there on automatic writing, this is what worked for me:
  • Ground Yourself: Bathe yourself in a cocoon of white light and throw your roots down from the bottom of your feet to the center of the earth.  If this is new for you, imagine each of your legs like the trunk of a tree, and visualize roots growing down into the ground. This helps keep you anchored, which in turn leads to clear and centered messages.
  • Ask for Protection:  The  white light helps, but if you're looking to contact a spirit  you are much better off with the big guns looking out for you. I  always call in the four archangels to cast a protective circle around me: Archangels Michael, Rafael, Gabriel and Uriel. It might be overkill, but I like to bring the whole crew in so I can ask for answers without worrying about who is communicating. 
  • Open Up: Today I started by pulling earth energy up  my left leg and then down the right leg back into the ground.  This gets the energies flowing and also makes you more conscious of your own vibration. Then visualize and feel the energy flowing up both legs past the root chakra and up the spinal column, flicking on red, orange, yellow, green, purple and blue lights as it passes each of the 7 chakras.   

This whole process can take 5-10 minutes depending on how much control you have over your energy field. There's a good meditation by Elliot Jay Tanzer that really helped me get in the practice of opening up, just remember to protect yourself before you start because he doesn't cover it. You also need to visually close and protect your chakras at the end, to keep from picking up psychic garbage.

Now here comes the fun part, pick up a pen and paper! 

  • Say What's On Your Mind! Pour your heart out, I write a page with all the stuff that's bogging me down, this clears the mind and creates quiet space for our spirit guides to make contact. As my guides once told me, they can't get a word in if our minds are going a thousand miles per hour! 
  • Pay Attention:  There comes a moment when the mind chatter fades and the tone of voice changes. The words you're writing start to calm you down, and the messages are reassuring and peaceful.  This is when your guides start to communicate, in my case the narrative will often change from the 1st to the 2nd person.
  • Trust What's Coming to You: One of the things I struggle with is knowing where the info comes from. Is it my subconscious? Is it a spirit guide? Am I talking to myself?  Guidance can be very very subtle, you just have to learn to recognize it. With time you may start to notice that some of your wiser thoughts come from someone else. 
  • Clear and Shield Yourself: Once you're done, its important to clear your energy by visualising white or violet light running down through your Aura and body into the ground. This releases any psychic energy. Next visualise your Aura returning to its normal size, and arms length above, below and all around. Fill and surround yourself with violet light, intending for that light to shield you. Thank the angels and snuff out the candle without blowing =) 

One of the best ways to stimulate your abilities is to talk to people who are on the same spiritual path. Finding common ground helps us recognize and develop our psychic skills, so if you've had any luck with automatic writing go ahead and tell us about it!

  1. ok im having so much trouble concentrating and trusting myself i can feel my arm wanting to move but i think im fighting it any advice please? im so desperate to talk to this person

    1. Hi Forever, Would you mind elaborating on your situation? Are you having trouble with automatic writing, or trouble relating to someone in your life?


  2. i am sorrta new to this actually when ever i have had a problem or been upset i have done this just didnt relize it it just seem to be an instict to lose myself in writing and finding answers through ir i do feel like it was my spirit guides they help me out alot. but now i am trying to contact a specific person i am trying to contact my baby that was born asleep i can still feel his presence but i want more comunication with him any tips?

    1. Hmmm, I'm not sure how to answer that one. Meditation, journaling or guided visualisations might work, though I'd use either technique as a means to get closure (on both sides) so that your baby's spirit can move on. His soul will always be linked to yours as I imagine you are part of the same soul group.

      You may want to post this question on the forum: The forum is on spirituality, the soul and the spirit, etc. Some of our members have had similar experiences and they might be able to advise on what worked for them.

      Love and Light,

  3. Dont think the writin is for offence
