What is Automatic Writing?

Automatic writing is essentially a form of intuitive journaling, which is said to be written by the subconscious mind. It has been claimed to be related to self-discovery, spiritual communication, and resolution of problematic situations.

Introduction to Automatic Writing

  1. Prepare Your Space: Choose a quiet, comfortable spot where you won't be disturbed. You may want to light a candle or some incense to create a calm atmosphere.

    1. The idea is that the space should be welcoming and calm enough for you to have a free flow of thought and energy.

  2. Set an Intention: Before you start, you should set a clear intention for your session. This could be to gain insight into a problem, connect with your higher self, or receive guidance from spiritual energies.

    1. If there are multiple issues, seek guidance on what is the first thing that you should work on.

    2. The more specific the intention is the better results are.

  3. Relax Your Mind: Meditate for a few minutes to calm your mind. Focus on breathing deeply and release any thoughts that might distract you.

  4. Start Writing: Open your notebook and start writing. Forget about grammar, spelling, or making sense. Just let the words come. Trust the process, and don't edit or judge—just keep writing.

    1. It can be anything that can flow, a past incident, something that can feel like a fantasy or a sci-fi. It's okay, you have to let it flow.

  5. Reflect and Interpret: When you feel that the flow of words is coming to a close, stop writing. Read over what you've written. Look for themes, symbols and messages that are repeated. Such patterns tend to reflect deeper meanings in your subconscious mind and help shape what you might do or think about.

Enhancing Automatic Writing with Crystals

Crystals help in amplifying the energy of automatic writing by making it even more powerful, enhancing connection and clarity. Here are some you crystals you can use to enhance automatic writing:

  • Amethyst: Known for enhancing intuition and spiritual connection. Keep an amethyst crystal at your writing desk to deepen the insight for clarification of your messages.

  • Lapis Lazuli: Encourages self-awareness, honesty, and compassion. It is excellent for amplifying the powers of automatic writing.
