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.
