Did you know that you—regardless of how
psychic you think you are—can communicate with your spirit-guides using
a technique called "Automatic Writing?" You’d better believe
it! In fact, it’s as easy as writing a letter to yourself.
Start by getting yourself into a relaxed
state of mind. Take several deep breaths; tighten and then loosen all your
muscles—from head to toe—one area at a time; and listen to some
soothing music, perhaps classical or new age music (best if done with
When you feel yourself in a relaxed state,
put your fingers to the keyboard (if you like to type) or pen to paper (if
you prefer this method), and simply write the very first words that come
into your mind. It is usually best for beginners to begin with a specific
question in mind—actually write the question onto the paper and then
write the first words that pop into your mind (as the answer).
The trick is to write whatever immediately
comes into your head, but without really thinking about it consciously.
Write as fast as the words come to you so that you don’t have time to
intellectualize what you’re writing. Don’t worry about spelling or
grammar—this is not going to be graded! Just write the answers to the
questions that you asked, and you can read them later (and edit the
spelling later, too, if you must).
When you stop writing because nothing more
is coming to you, or someone interrupts you, read what you have written.
You will be surprised to recognize that the piece you have written will
sound nothing like your own writing. Friends and family members may notice
this before you do if they are used to reading what you write.
Try to do your automatic writing around the
same time every day. Begin doing it for ten or fifteen minutes per session
at the most. Soon, both your spirit-guides and your own mind will be
trained to anticipate this particular time of the day for this
communication, and you will find yourself able to fall right into the
relaxed state of mind and into your automatic writing without delay.
Do not be discouraged the first few times
you try this. It may feel awkward at the beginning, but you will grow
accustomed to it. You may also need to learn how to "trust" that
what you are writing is actually coming from your spirit-guides and not
from your own mind. You will notice that the words you write have a
greater wisdom about them than the way you normally speak or write. You
will notice that the pattern of speech within the writing is different
than your own. And you will eventually learn—as you grow to trust the
automatic writing—that the information given to you is beyond any
knowledge and experience you had before reading it. With practice and
consistency, you will gain the wisdom of the spirit-world at your finger
tips. Good luck and good writing!
