About Automatic Writing


A few years ago, I believe three, I began studying automatic writing (via the internet). I studied this interesting subject for several months. My studies included: techniques, meditation, protection, beginning a session, ending a session and of course warnings. But back then there actually wasn't much useful information online I could have gone off of. I remembered a webpage, written by someone who wrote a book on automatic writing, saying something along the lines of: "Automatic writing isn't something you can learn, some people can do it, while others just simply cant." I figured I should try it out before studying anymore. I tried it out once a day, for about a week, sadly nothing happened; it was extremely disappointing but I decided I must be one of those people that 'just simply can't. Since then I have studied on a different alternative, the Ouija Board, which I learned to do quite naturally.

Just yesterday I was watching the Tyra Banks Show; on there they invited a pair of psychic twins, who used automatic writing to answer the audience's questions and tell women if their husbands or boyfriends had been cheating on them. I carefully watched how the twins concentrated and tried to see if they had a special technique. After watching the show I suddenly became compelled to try automatic writing one last time. This time I succeeded! But not only once, earlier today I tried again, to make sure it wasn't a fluke. And just like the time before, I succeeded with no problems. It really seemed natural; even though I failed the first time back a few years ago. I wondered why it suddenly worked and I came to the decision that it was most likely because I use Ouija Boards. Abruptly I decided it was for the best to pick up where I left off in my studies. While reading about it, I found a small webpage that said only to do it once a day for maximum of 15 minutes. I found it strange just because automatic writing so very close to Ouija; and I can do that however many times I want, with no time limit at all. And to my surprise all websites say basically the exact same thing overall! I'm sure what I see on all these websites aren't everything I need to know. I mean, most sites list 5 steps and just label it 'How to Automatic-Write' with no detail or anything. I really want to go further into this, so I'm willing to take any suggestions.

My biggest issue so far is keeping my mind completely blank. I've tried several times and each time at some point I catch myself thinking, and soon enough writing down what I'm expecting it to say. There's no websites that goes into further detail past the basics, I'm willing to read books but there aren't any at barns and Nobel; I've tried.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and posting any advice, answers, and comments. As a side note: one of my biggest passions in life are Ouija Boards. I believe they're completely neutral, in other words only a tool. I strongly disagree with Ouija boards being 'tools of the devil', evil, so on and so fourth. So I would like any replies to be about automatic writing ONLY.

I have a question about automatic writing. I tried it tonight, but I started off meditating first. While I was meditating I focused on my breathing so my mind was clear, and slowly my head went back against the wall and I felt light and dizzy. I started asking questions mentally and writing whatever came to my head first, and continued to focus on my breathing do my mind wouldn't trail off. I asked each question a few times though, I think so that other thoughts of mine couldn't pop up in my head... I held my pen loosely, but it doesn't really look like my handwriting in most of it, and it's actually neat...

Why did I feel like that when I was meditating? And did I succeed in automatic writing? I believe I did but it was my first time...

Different systems of augury make different demands on the channel. The less you have to rely on outward devices, the more it requires from you. (Agreeing with Kai-kun).

There is always the requirement of attaining a state to remove personal bias and interference from the channel (through meditation, prayer, 'empty focus', etc) in order to attain the clearest intended answers.

Meditation, whatever its form, isn't easy until it becomes natural and unforced. The reason so many find it so difficult is extremity of force of will. Trying too hard is the same thing as chasing, and chasing is not trying enough. The point doesn't even rest with these two polarities. It's apart from them by existing right in the middle of them, like sitting in a boat on the ocean amidst the eye of a hurricane... Where everything near you is silent and calm while everything within view at the edge of the calm circle is the closest thing nature can create to a watery hell on earth. Your boat rocks, but it remains a flat surface beneath you and you can relax unconcerned.

(Okay...getting carried away...)

External answers require the ability to logically as well as intuitively pursue the answer in order to ensure clarity. If the channel is 'too' open, they can be manipulated by other external and/or interfering energies. Thus the reason for protective and focusing measures. This is also part of the wisdom of 'the answer is within' line of thought. The more within you look with the least amount of force, the less anything without can interfere by contributing its own (force of energy).

For my own, in an attempt to artificially 'confuse' my mind, I flipped through the dictionary for a starting word and began a standard subconscious 'mind dump'. After filling up nearly a whole page with random words and nonsense, phrases began to come out. Then the phrases started making sense. The messages in mine were all in the same theme, ending with a promise that 'we are coming, we love you, just hold on, be strong, we won't give up on you, don't give up hope' and so on, [referencing my concerns about a world that is, insofar as it is presented via available media, proceeding down a less desirable path despite the good within it].

After several days of relishing this new experience I suddenly got the impression/knowledge that the other forms of wisdom-seeking I was already familiar with were more efficient, less taxing and could be used more often. So I don't use AW much. I've always, and still do, 'get' things out of nowhere from time to time and just flow with it.

As with anything else channel-wise, attempting to force things just drives it further away. One channel picks up one signal. We might have several channels that we can tune in to life, but there are a few that we receive the most intensely without 'static' and interference.

Trying to get a vice grip on a greased balloon only causes it to shoot away. Then you end up having to sit there and watch while it comes back down to you until it's within reach again. Just hold out your palms and wait. It'll come to you. The one (s) that rest calmly in your palms are most ideal. The ones that slide around might be intriguing and worthy of interest, but they're not the most ideal. The others spend more time floating in the air than are worth your time. Just because they sit calmly in another's palms, doesn't mean they will in ours. Let those go where they should and cherish the others.

(sorry...did it again...)

i jis want to know if this makes any sense because I have been practicing automatic writing and don't know if this is what it really is. I'm not asking a specific question just writing.

Labels and controls on the people make no sense in modern day reality why do we interfere when other people need to learn for theirselves it is know that only one can change the face of everything and it is not disputed or challenged in the mind of the universe, lots of controls on the way that we live and the things that we learn can only be detrimental to our beings and this is so evident throughout history. Nobody seems to learn from their mistakes in a global fashion, its makes wondering of the future a drag on the feet so that people do only know tomorrow and the day is just passing time unobserved, why do the thoughts that generate the worse way of living take over when it could jus be rectified with light and love

The reasons why you shouldn't use it multiple times a day, for more than a certain amount of time, is 'cause it uses MORE energy than a board. Usually, using a board is easier 'cause all they have to do is look at the letters and move to them. With writing, THEY have to write, which uses up more energy, and usually they use YOUR energy. Using up too much energy means you'll be more vulnerable to partial-possession, FULL possession, or spirit obsession, which are all horrid things.
