Are you interested in learning how to connect to your inner wisdom? If so, automatic writing may be the perfect tool for you! Automatic writing is an incredible technique that enables communication with your higher self and your spirit guides. In this article, we’ll show you how to get started in just four easy steps.
Step 1: Grounding
To begin the process, find a quiet and private space where you can feel safe, calm, and centered. Start by taking three deep breaths and releasing any stress or negativity. Then, focus on your breath and imagine drawing in the earth’s energy on the inhale and releasing any tension on the exhale. Grounding is crucial as it brings your awareness into the present moment and establishes a connection between the spirit world and the world of matter.
Step 2: Intention & Protection
Once you’re calm and centered, it’s time to set your intention and create your boundaries. Keep your intention positive and present, and say it out loud. Ask for guidance from your higher self, spirit guides, and guardian angels on a specific matter.
Here’s an example of my intention:
“It is my intention to receive guidance from my highest self/spirit guides. I ask that I receive guidance in alignment with divine light, divine love and divine will, in my highest good and the highest good of all. I ask that I receive guidance with clarity, honesty, and integrity and I ask that only beings of the highest light and intention assist me here today. I ask this all with a humble and gracious heart. Amen, it is done and so it is. Thank-you”.
Then, visualize a blue egg around yourself as you request guidance and protection from your spirit helpers. It’s essential to set boundaries and protect yourself from disresonant energies. Never try automatic writing under the influence of drugs or alcohol as it can open you up to unwanted influences.
Step 3: Writing
Now, you’re ready to start writing. Relax your hands, take a few conscious breaths, and ask a question. Write the question out and let the answers flow. Don’t worry about misspellings or grammatical errors; just let it come out naturally. Try to avoid overthinking or correcting mistakes, and remember that practice makes perfect.
You may have tried stream-of-consciousness writing in English class and this is very similar. After you pose the question just keep on writing, even if it doesn’t make sense or it is a bunch of seemingly nonsensical sentences streamed together, it is all part of the process. If you are writing by hand, you may even notice a shift in the writing style when you do make a connection. You may also notice that the writing will shift from a first-person to a third-person point of view as you learn to communicate with your guides.
Remember that guidance may show up in mysterious and symbolic ways. It is not the working of your conscious mind and it doesn’t have to be linear and logical. Any time you bring in any resistance and that could be in the form of frustration over a typo or you start thinking about, “What if someone reads this?” This will take you out of the flow of energy and intelligence that you tapped into. After you are done with the process, if you wish, you can then go in with your logical mind and decipher the meaning or fix typos.
Step 4: Closing and Giving Thanks
When you’re finished, close the session by giving thanks. You can go back and analyze the writing’s meaning later, but for now, take a moment to appreciate the connection you’ve made. Remember to give gratitude to your higher self, spirit guides, and guardian angels for their guidance and protection.
Automatic writing is a fantastic tool for connecting to your inner wisdom. By following these four easy steps, you’ll be well on your way to unlocking your higher self’s knowledge and communicating with your spirit guides. Remember to practice often, and don’t be discouraged if it takes time to get the hang of it. With patience and dedication, you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve.
