Do you ever try to get your answer from paranormal activity? Well in paranormal phenomena it is called automatic writing experience. Even in today’s times there are many ways of connecting with soul, using which we know the hidden secrets by talking to the souls.
If there is an easy yet effective way to connect with your spirit guide or soul, it is Auto writing. This is one of the best techniques.
Automatic writing in paranormal phenomena is an easy practice for those who have just started their spiritual journey.
This is a special exercise which the medium in his trance-like state writes on the paper with the help of pen those messages which he gets from his Spiritual Guide.
They get these special messages out of conscious awareness over which they have no control. Psychologists and spiritualists both have different views on this process.
While psychologists believe that this is a message received through our unconscious mind, on the other hand spiritualists see it by connecting it with supernatural and paranormal powers.
People personally believes that the automatic writing process is completely conscious mind or trance-like state.
This is done through us, which later gets connected to our higher self. We have already written above spiritual guide, so in this post we are going to talk about this process only.
It is believed that this is such a practice of connecting with a spiritual guide which is very easy as well as helps in gaining spiritual knowledge.
What is auto writing or automatic writing experience?
Automatic writing is still considered as an old form of divination i.e. a kind of spiritual method. It is believed that this method collects messages from around us and writes them on paper.
This is the process of our subconscious mind going into a particular state which works like a form of medium-ship.
The mysterious powers around us try to give us some message or the other. Such people who have psychic ability can sense them.
With these special abilities, only a few people are able to contact with them.
This process has been proven both scientifically and spiritually. Experts doing research say that this is a state of our subconscious mind in which we feel that which we are not able to do in normal condition.
Consciousness does not work in this state, so whatever we feel during this time, we note it on paper like a message.
In auto writing, it is necessary to have some time in solitude along with a pen and a paper.
Automatic writing is a simple, safe, and powerful way to connect with your Soul.
But don’t be intimidated by the “writing” part! Automatic writing can be practiced by anyone, from beginners who have just begun their spiritual journey, to seasoned travellers on the inward path.
You don’t have to be a “good writer” or bother about spelling and grammar at all – none of that matters! Automatic writing is totally intuitive, so the only thing that matters is your heart and underlying intention.
In this article, I want to share with you how to hone this magical skill, even if you have zero experience!
How to do and Practice Automatic Writing at home
During this process, the mind of the medium should be calm and away from any kind of tension. There should be no state of any kind of tension in the mind of the practicing medium. This is a mental exercise for which you should believe in yourself.
In the state of hypnosis, the subconscious mind becomes aware, due to which we receive those messages which are like universal messages.
Some people also believe that this practice connects us with supernatural power. Is this practice psychic or some kind of scientific process, let’s know about it in detail.
How to have an automatic writing experience
Automatic writing experience, also known as psychography, is the practice of tapping into a deep source of wisdom within you outside of conscious awareness – also known as the Soul.
This intuitive writing practice is usually done in a trance-like or altered state of consciousness.
Psychologists and spiritualists have varying beliefs about the origin of automatic writing, with some arguing that it is sourced from the unconscious mind, and others claiming that it originates from supernatural forces such as spirit guides and angels.
My personal belief is that automatic writing is sourced from the unconscious mind which is a doorway into the Soul or Higher Self.
This makes automatic writing experience a wonderful way to gain profound and accurate life guidance!
We have already talked about this method. One of the top 5 methods to talk with spirit it is considered easy but not reliable. The medium can also write the things of his mind, this is such an argument that raises questions on it. Let us know how to practice it.
- The very first step is to choose a secluded place where no one can disturb you during practice.
- Set up a table and chair. Take paper and pen or pencil.
- Sit quietly and relax yourself with comfort sit so that you can clear the mind completely.
- Take pen in hand and try to write on paper.
- Try that you remain in consciousness while writing. If you are reasoning while writing, then stop for a while.
- The appropriate stage is when you are not in your senses and whatever emerges in your mind, you go on writing it without reasoning.
- Keep your eyes closed while writing and keep writing whatever comes in your mind.
- This practice is not easy, so be patient and give time to practice.
- Try to understand whatever signs and pictures you see like a clairvoyant experience.
- Always keep practicing because in the beginning your consciousness stops you.
Once the practice starts to be successful, then you can continue the practice of Auto Writing in response to the question asking yourself.

There are many other benefits of automatic writing experience and that is part of the wondrous joy of this practice you never know precisely how it’s going to enrich your life next! Gradually you’ll discover that different parts of yourself and your life have undergone some kind of spiritual alchemy in the most subtle yet profound way.
Practice is easy but not guaranteed
While doing this exercise, keep in mind that this exercise is not as easy as you think. Our conscious mind prevents us from seeing anything that is not related to our conscious mind. People who have psychic ability, they achieve success while practicing it, but that also takes time.
This practice is not considered reliable, due to which the medium has control in it. We think that both the powers and paranormal activity of the medium are responsible for Auto Writing.
Many times it also happens that the medium completes this process while remaining conscious. Because of which he can change the result according to his mind.
You should be aware of any kind of psychological dangers. Some messages that come to mind can disturb you mentally. If you are not mentally prepared for this then it is better not to practice.
Automatic writing and modern technique
Some people believe that technology changes with time.
There are many ways to talk to spirits, in which modern technology is used, such as camera, video recorder or any other kind of ghost investigation tools, we use to talk to spirits.
If you want, you can do this exercise on computer or mobile also.
For this, you have to put your conscious mind to sleep and take yourself to an unconscious state.
Just as in hypnosis, we hypnotize the medium and know the hidden things through its unconscious mind, in the same way this practice is done.
Set aside a time and space
Before starting an automatic writing experience and session, it’s important that you give yourself as much time as needed to express what needs to be expressed.
One surefire way to hinder the flow of information is time pressure and the expectation that it “should” take a certain amount of time. In my experience, automatic writing can take a couple of minutes anywhere up to half an hour or more.
Basically, create a space in which you can relax as much as possible mentally. You may benefit from reserving time in the afternoons when you can’t be disturbed or any time when you can’t be interrupted for at least an hour.
Think of a question that you want guidance for
The whole purpose of automatic writing is to access guidance from your Soul, especially if you struggle to hear it in daily life.
Start each session with a clear question, and write it down in your journal or word document.
Choose a question that has really been pulling at your heart or eating you up inside.
The more emotionally charged the question is, the clearer your response will be. This step is also known as setting an intention.
It’s also important that you address your question to someone or something in particular such as your Soul, a Spirit Guide, or your unconscious mind.
For example, your question could be “Dear Soul, why do I keep sabotaging my happiness?”
Relax your mind
Learning how to relax your mind is the most important part of automatic writing. When your mind is still and empty of thoughts, writing spontaneously becomes much easier.
Examples of possible ways you can relax your mind include:
- Breathwork techniques
- Sitting in nature
If you live in a country that permits plant medicines like marijuana (and if you feel comfortable using it), you may also like to make responsible use of this natural resource. Do whatever suits you and relaxes you the most.
Enter a gentle trance
As humans, we have the capacity to enter trance-like states very easily. The most popular trance state we enter into is while watching TV! A trance-like state is a form of altered consciousness in which your normal thinking brain relaxes.
For automatic writing experience, entering a trance state is very useful because it facilitates the spontaneous flow of information. Common ways to enter into a gentle trance include listening to music, yogic/holotropic breathing, mantras, repetitive tasks, guided meditations, self-hypnosis, and many others.
Allow the flow of information
Once you feel ready you can begin to write. Don’t worry if at first, the words are gobbledygook or if you can’t follow the stream of information.
In fact, if you’re completely unaware of what you’re writing, that’s actually a very good thing!
It means that you’re tapping into something that is far greater than your thinking mind.
It’s also very common during this stage to find yourself judging what you write and analyzing it with skepticism. This is quite normal.
If you find your mind getting too involved, gently bring yourself back towards whatever practice you used before to enter a trance state. For example, if you were rhythmically breathing, go back to that. You’ll likely have to repeat this step a number of times.
Interpret the information
At a certain point, you’ll intuitively sense that your automatic writing experience session is coming to an end.
Perhaps you’ll feel like you’ve energetically “run dry” or your mind becomes sharper again. Through time, you’ll learn what this signal feels like.
Other times, you might abruptly stop writing and no more information comes.
Whatever the case, once you’ve stopped, it’s time to review what you’ve written.
Try looking firstly for coherent sentences or keywords that may pop out.
Perhaps the vast majority of it sounds like gibberish, but every now and then there’s a legible sentence – focus on that.
Sometimes you’ll also find patterns, and in some situations, even words from different languages emerging in your journaling.
How to know if it is really working or not
The best way to find out if the exercise is progressing properly is to observe your movements and movements.
Do you feel inner spaciousness, lightness, and other good “vibes” during Auto Writing?
Or do you feel changes like heavy, emotionally-charged (suddenly feeling yourself emotionally changed)?
All these experiences happen when we find ourselves in a state of no mind state.
In this state, we are calm and stable, in which any thoughts are messages coming out of the inner mind instead of not coming from our conscious mind.
How to Channel Your Soul through Automatic Writing
Essentially, automatic writing, when broken down into simple steps, is quite straightforward. It involves:
- Getting a pen and paper/opening a notepad or word document
- Thinking of a question to ask
- Writing down the question
- Relaxing your body and mind
- Allowing the writing to flow spontaneously
However, entering the flow needed for automatic writing can be fairly tricky without some kind of guidance (unless you have a natural gift for it).
You might also find, like many people, that the first time you try to have an automatic writing experience it goes really well. But after that, you struggle a lot!
The reason this happens is that when we first try something new, our minds are often empty of belief and expectation (also known as the ‘Beginner’s Mind’).
However, afterward, we begin to accumulate mental baggage and expectations which tend to block the process of spontaneous revelation.
Benefit of Psychic Practice
If you are determined in your mind, then through the powers of the subconscious mind, you can directly connect with the spiritual guide. Let us know about some of its benefits such as
- You start taking direct guidance from your Soul / Higher Self.
- You feel much focused in your daily work.
- You find yourself capable of taking better decisions.
- Your intuitive abilities become sharp.
- This is a good exercise if you want to connect with Spirit Guides and understand their perspectives.
- It is such an exercise that helps the learner to believe in himself and understand himself.
- Most people are full of instincts and intuition but they do not trust themselves. This exercise teaches them to trust it.
Not only this, this practice helps us to open the sixth sense or third eye.
How to expand your consciousness during Automatic writing experience conclusion
There are many mediums to talk to souls, in which medium itself acts as a medium to talk to souls.
Practice like Automatic or Auto Writing is very easy. This practice works to connect with one’s own spiritual guide through the unconscious mind, which motivates the person to connect with his soul.
There are two types of views regarding this practice, first psychologists in which we connect this practice with the Unconscious Mind and those who believe in Spiritual Practice consider it to be the practice of connecting with Soul or Higher-Self.
If you want to increase Psychic ability then you should do this exercise. This kind of practice makes you stronger with self-confidence.
You can also practice this to increase mental power. Both the views agree for this, which supports the power of spirituality and our subconscious mind.
Here best way to know for sure that you’re receiving guidance from your Soul is how you feel while writing.
Do you feel a sense of inner spaciousness, lightness, and other good “vibes”? Or do you feel heavy, emotionally charged, and mentally frantic?
In my experience, I know for sure that I’m connecting with Soul/Spirit when I enter a state of no-mind in which I am completely present, calm, and at peace.
However, when writing becomes frantic and heavy, it is usually coming from the mental or emotional energy “body” – also known as the conscious self or ego.
Another way to tell whether you’re really channelling your Soul is by reviewing what is written.
Are the words authoritative, clear, and wise? Or are the words closer to what your mind sounds like (disjointed, critical, or vague)?
