Why I Don't Teach Automatic Writing
Automatic writing is the process of getting into a relaxed state, closing your eyes and moving pen to page with your hand.
When done well, you will begin to write the channelings of your Spirit Guides and the Ascended Masters.
But in most cases, automatic writing is not done well.
Thousands and thousands of documents have been produced by the automatic channeling of people who have relaxed their senses to allow a nearby Spirit to step into their bodies and use their hands to communicate messages.
In automatic writing, your writing speaks on behalf of whatever Spirit is controlling your hand.
I don’t advise anyone try automatic writing.
And this is why.
- because Identification is not made priority
Automatic writing is a version of the the modern day Ouija board.
In both practices, for a time that you expect to be temporary, you let a potentially unknown Spirit control your hands and the objects within your hands.
Communicate first and identify later is the philosophy and unfortunately, by the time you identify, it may be too late.
In safe mediumship, this process is reversed. Identification happens before anyone links to communicate - not the other way around.
- because You don’t know who you are talking to
Because identification has not been made a priority, there is no telling that you are actually communicating with a high level entity. You could be talking to an earthbound Spirit or God knows who or what. When you open up and trust without learning how to discern who is what first, this is a nothing short of a recipe for disaster.
Not all Spirits tell the truth, especially not those who are hanging around earth, those who have not yet crossed over and those who have an affinity for using physical world tools - earthbound spirits.
Unfortunately, automatic writing samples, when compared to historical facts, are notoriously full of falsities - and this would be why.
In safe mediumship, a light channel is called down to protect the medium before any spirits are invited in. This ensures that only spirits of the light come through to connect. In automatic writing, this practice, though essential for safety, is rarely emphasized or taught.
- because Your spirit speaker may stick around longer thank you'd like
In typical automatic writing teachings, no safety precautions are spoken about or taught - simply relax, open up and let it flow.
While these are all great ideas in theory, safe mediumship requires you to call down a light channel before you connect for two reasons:
Reason 1. It assures your information is coming from a divine source
Reason 2. It protects you from any potential lingering attachments
Placing a divine light channel over yourself before you connect is like wearing latex gloves before you go into surgery.
If you don’t do it, anything that gets on your skin, can get into your pores and stick around.
For example, an Earthbound Spirit may attach to you and stay.
Earthbound Spirits that link to the living and use their host’s energy to continue to exist are called attachments. An attachment spirit drains the host of their energy, influence their host’s behavior and drag their host down. The longer they stay, the more spirit attachments they attract.
Automatic writing de-prioritizes identification and emphasizes a false sense of safety.
in my personal opinion, this practice is not safe as it is taught today -
This is why I won't teach it. However, Automatic writing CAN be fun, safe and informative when done properly.
While I don’t recommend this practice, if you must do it, the below. steps will keep you safe and germ-free in the process.
When practicing automatic writing,
here’s how to make sure you’re truly connecting with The Right Spirits:
Call down a light channel first
Identify your spirit speaker before you connect
Double check their messages for facts
And dismiss all spirits present when you are complete
