When we talk about automatic writing, we are talking about channeling. We are allowing information to come through our hand from the other side or from our own higher self. Although there may be no way to prove whether or not automatic writing is real, you will come to your own conclusions. At first it may be hard to understand how easy this process is, but being able to set your analytical side aside will help you to accept the wonderful tool that this can be in your life.
With automatic writing you can access all the ideas, knowledge, and wisdom that is and ever will be known. It involves consciously shifting your mind and mental space in order to achieve an expanded state of consciousness that is called a trance. To achieve the Trance State to allow your guides in, you can use either a progressive relaxation or “trigger” technique. Triggers are very easy to develop. Remember that anything we do on a consistent basis becomes a habit. To develop a trigger, and this can be used anytime you would like to go into an instant state of relaxation, do the following exercise.
Developing a Trigger
Lets say that I wanted to use the intent that every time I touched my first two fingers of my left hand to the middle of my forehead (My third eye) I would automatically go into a state of trance, a state of relaxation that will open my subconscious mind to receive information. Now that I know what will “trigger” this state in me, I have to reinforce this on a consistent basis so that it will become a habit.
1. Sit quietly and take a few easy breaths. Allow your body and mind to slow down. As you are relaxing, say silently to yourself, “Every time I touch my first two fingers of my left hand to my forehead, I will go into an open receptive state.” Say this ten times and then do it. As you sit relaxed, touch the first two fingers of your left hand to your forehead and see how even more relaxed you feel. Your head will probably want to slowly tilt down so that your chin is resting against your chest. Your eyelids will feel heaviness to them and your body will become more relaxed.
2. Then to bring yourself back up, say silently to yourself, “At the count of three, I will become fully awake and alert.”
It’s that easy. A trigger becomes part of us on a subconscious level. It uses a physical conditioning that has developed into a habit. When a trigger is initiated, it opens our subconscious and our subconscious searches for the response we have given that trigger. It is like a child that is hit and told, “I love you.” To the child the slap is the trigger that opens the subconscious mind and develops the response that, “If I get slapped, that means love to me.” That’s why so many abused children either become abusers or abuse the ones they love. Developing good, strong, positive triggers are necessary for a healthy life.
One of the most well known people to use automatic writing is Ruth Montgomery. She comes from a very analytical background as a reporter. It was in her search for information on what channeling was all about that she connected with Lilly, her guide, and a group of twelve other spirits from the other side that communicated with her on a daily basis. You would be surprised at the number of people that have written books, music, scientific formulas, etc. using automatic writing as the technique to obtain their information.
People who automatically write feel more grounded, stable, and in charge of there lives. Note your guides will not give you all the answers. They are there to assist you, not run your life. They acknowledge and respect your free will. You are the one who will make use of their words of wisdom to amplify and clarify your soul’s path. You just need to get your own thoughts out of the way and become receptive to their higher guidance.
