4 Step Guide To Automatic Writing

4 Step Guide To Automatic Writing

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.

Are you ready for something different? Intention Setting 2021

Are you ready for something different? Intention Setting 2021


In This Episode:

As we move into 2021, it has become evident that we need to get clear on the direction we want to go as individuals. There are so many influences tempting us to act on our baser instincts that if we don’t know who we are and how we want to show up in the world, we get sucked into the drama around us. In this episode, we explore intention setting to live meaningfully and consciously in the coming year.

1. What is your Intention? (Spiritual Level)

This is the ‘What’ of the equation. Think of intention as the quality of experience you want most in your life. For example, being in a state of gratitude or feeling in balance. This intention is the calibration of your ideal state of being. We create this short phrase or single word with the understanding that we won’t always reach it, but it gives us a touchstone to connect to regularly. It is a big-picture or soul-level desire that encompasses the experience we would like to bring into being. Intentions are not detail-driven, because they don’t have to be. It is through this intention that we create an agreement with ourselves and the universal consciousness.

2. Why is this intention important to you? (Mental & Emotional Level)

This is the ‘Why’ of the equation. We often hear about SMART goals – specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic, and timely. These certainly have their place, but in this model, we are seeking an experience or a state of being. So rather than focusing only on the outcomes, we are asking ourselves why this intention is valuable to us? Another way to look at it is by asking – what does my intention have to offer me? This is the essence of mindful living. 

For example, if your aim is balance, then ask yourself, why do I want the experience of balance? What does this intention afford me? For this, we need to examine when our lives seem most out of balance. Is your work schedule too hectic? Do you tend to be an emotional eater? What experiences would balance offer you? You may realize that your goal is to learn boundaries, to say no to things you don’t have time for, or maybe it is the feeling of self-worth that lends itself to more balanced choices. If gratitude is your intention, perhaps it is the experience of abundance rather than lack or a sense of optimism rather than focusing on the negatives.

In this step, it serves us to do a little bit of root digging. Meaning, it is an opportunity to look at the underlying motivations around our current choices. I like to use the playful why. Hmmm.. that’s interesting? Why did I come home and eat that pint of ice cream? What was going on in my life today? Too much stress…bad fight with the spouse, etc.? Another way to approach it is to look at what your typical New Year’s resolution would be. If your resolution was to be to lose 10lbs, what does that 10lbs symbolize? e.g., self-worth, self-trust, boundaries. You get the idea.

3. How do you get that experience? (Physical Level)

This is the ‘How’ of the equation. These are the action steps you take to have the experience that is in alignment with the other two steps. This is when you get down to the real details. These action steps should be small acts of personal power that you can follow through on. If gratitude is your intention, and you’re looking for a more profound sense of abundance or inner peace, then maybe one of your action steps is to have a gratitude journal or to stop yourself once a day to take a breath and list five things you are grateful for in that moment. Action steps allow the expression of your intention and will enable you to have the experiences you named in #2. Every time we follow through on an action step, we build personal power. This power allows us to transmute and transcend behaviors and circumstances. It is the power of now. Start with thinking about three of the easiest ways you can change your behavior in alignment with your intention.

Mastering Desire, Will and Intention

Mastering Desire, Will and Intention

“You are what your deepest desire is. As is your desire, so is your intention. As is your intention, so is your will. As is your will, so is your deed. As is your deed, so is your destiny.”

― Upanishads

What is Creative Manifestation?

We are creators and that means we are more than artists or writers. We co-create our experience through our thoughts, our words, our deeds, and our will. Everything we do is a creative act. So our choice becomes do we do this consciously or based on habit and previous programming?

Components of Manifestation

There are three key components to creative manifestation:


From a mindfulness perspective, there are two distinct types of desire. The first is the desire of a wanting mind. It is a thirst that feels it can only be satisfied by something outside of the self. In Buddhism, this would be one of the mind poisons. It is this type of desire that keeps you stuck in the cycle of birth-death- re-birth. This craving is looking to be satisfied, we partake in the desire, we feel a brief sense of satiety and then we repeat the cycle over again.

The second type of desire is the desire to do. This is our want to be connected to something bigger than ourselves. It is about bringing what is within ourselves into the outer world. There is a palpable sense of energy and inspiration about participating in a way that creates something meaningful. Desire is the driving force behind our actions so the question becomes does the wanting come from a place of lack or does it come from a place of adding meaning?


Will is a bit harder to define, but it is the power source composed of two distinct characteristics. It is emotion aka the desire coupled with conscious choice. So the desire to do added to the power of choice gives us will.


Our intention is the container for our will and desire. The ultimate ideal or the big picture of what it is we want to see come to fruition. It is a single word or phrase that unifies the desire, choice and deed.

How to Create What We Desire?

By combining all of the above components we can co-create our world. We need to understand the story around our desire. Why do we want what we want? Does it come from the desire to do or the desire to satisfy? Once we understand our story, we develop meaning. When something becomes meaningful to us i.e. we understand how it fits our worldview and value system, then we make choices in alignment with them. This is an expression of our will. If all of this is done with a unifying intention and we are consistent in the expression of our desires, will, deeds and intention – we consciously co-create our reality.

For more information on how the components of manifesting work together, listen to this podcast.

Or listen to this guided meditation on using joy and sacred geometry to activate your manifesting potential.

This meditation is part of the weekly Living Light Meditation gathering in the Chaos & Light Community. In this meditation, we use sacred geometry and joy to activate our highest creative potential. You will use the flower of life image on the screen in conjunction with the meditation, so it is best if you view it on a bigger screen. If you want to listen to the audio-only, then just imagine the flower of life in your mind’s eye when directed. (Music Credit: LATEX_music)
