Mystical Moon Blog Automatic Writing
Automatic writing. If you don’t really know what it is or how it works, you should read the books written by Ruth Montgomery. Ruth passed away years ago in Naples, Florida. Over her career as a writer she produces at least 8-10 books via automatic writing. The first was called, “Here and Hereafter”. Hers is a very interesting story and a great read for anyone interested in understanding what spirit communication is like, and the information that you can receive from the other side. Conversations with God are another series that are an example of automatic writing.
When I first tried to do automatic writing, I sat with paper and pen and waited for spirit to pick up my arm and make it write. It didn’t happen that way and as I read more and more about it, I tried it different ways. Finally I just sat and after a meditation I held my pen ready to write what ever thought came into my head. The words. “ he is always with you” were the words that came through. For some reason, for me at that time, I thought it sounded too religious and I didn’t pick up a pen to do automatic writing again, for almost 40 years.
What a loss for me and for my soul.
There did come a time when I wanted to write again. In fact I felt compelled to write. It wasn’t automatic writing; I just started a little story, something I thought might be a way to open children up to all things metaphysical. I found myself so wrapped up in my story, it was consuming my evenings and any free time I had. I wrote, I researched and I poured out my story from all my memories of facts and metaphysical truths I could remember or felt were important.
One day as I wrote, I felt amazed with the simplicity of what I saw flowing onto the paper and I wrote the question,” Where or who is this coming from?” The answer came loud and clear, “Zorben”.
I told myself….”you’ve been doing automatic writing for years now with your stories, and all this writing every night, now it’s time to start asking questions. “ So began my true automatic writing.
There are so many times I feel like it’s just words, coming from me, that I’m just making up stuff and have no idea why. But then spirit tells me, to trust that it’s not me making it up. Spirit speaks in the softest whispers and what feels like my own thought is the energy, the higher vibration of spirit slipping in. It’s how they communicate. Oh there may be a time or two they might shout but most of the time it doesn’t happen that way.
So my advice to you is to write, write what ever comes into your head. Ask questions and then answer the questions. Keep a journal and write your feelings, emotions, thoughts or maybe just the ups and downs of your every day physical and spiritual journey. I am sure if you have quiet time and write you will get results. What ever you do, save what you write, date it and keep it to look back at later on.
I look back over my life and I can see so many times that spirit was speaking to me…nudging me, trying to get my attention. Don’t waste your years of connection the way I did so many of mine.
Recently spirit told me, “The secret to automatic writing is”, pick up the pen and try.
