The power of mind and psychic abilities that you innately have are staggering. Among many others, automatic writing is an interesting talent to look into. The process of automatic writing creates a piece of written work that does not stem from your conscious mind. Performed mostly in a trance state, the writer’s hands might create the work, but the writer’s conscious mind had nothing to do with it. Preparing for and performing automatic can be an interesting activity that will not only provide insights into your subconscious mind, but you might also create a nice piece of writing.
In the past, automatic writing has been performed in a variety of methods, including the occult setting of a dark room with a lit candle between the writer and a mirror. For your automatic writing you will not need such an elaborate setup, just the power of mind to focus yourself and put your brain to work. Begin, as with any psychic exercise, by getting comfortable and relaxed. In this case, you will sit at your computer. Being tired might actually work in your favor, as your mind and body are both looser and naturally relaxed.
Your computer will act as the guide between your conscious and subconscious minds. You can choose to write logical thoughts, the date or nonsense words scribbled across your screen. This can be a sort of warm up for your exercise, and you may find it helpful to have some words already on screen when you begin your automatic writing session.
Lightly touch your fingertips to the keyboard, resting them on the keys. Close your eyes and call up the guide you hope to leave you a message. If your goal is to find an answer to a problem, try asking the question to yourself. As many believe automatic writing is a form of mediumship, you may need to ask your guides several questions before he or she answers you.
This is a good way to get to know both your guide and the power of mind you are working with. If you are having trouble locating a guide for automatic writing, try meditating. Once you feel connected, try focusing your attention inside your head, repeating whatever your goal for the writing session may be. If you come out of your trance to find unfamiliar words on your computer screen, you have achieved your automatic writing goal. Otherwise, you may want to continue exercising to maximize the power of mind.
