For the past couple of days I have been working on my newsletters. Each month I send out a personal one which I put together. I also send out a Letters From The Light Side Newsletter the content of which often comes in through automatic writing.
I have always been fascinated by reports of automatic writing. When my own mediumship started to develop writing was one of the ways I found the Spirit people connected with me. If I wrote a question down and then started to write the answer I often felt like the words on the page dropped into my mind and out through my pen without any thought from me. I learned that I was doing inspired writing. By writing a question my Guides could use my clarecognisence and put their point cross through the answer. I was always rather stunned by the insightful answers. I could see that the way they were written wasn’t my style at all. Even the pen style changed someohow.
Eventually I started to work on giving the Guides more freedom to write what they wanted. I began to use my non writing hand, closing my eyes and seeing what emerged on the paper. Eventually the writing became legible and there were clear messages for me. Finally I moved to my keyboard. I wanted to see if the automatic writing could happen when I was typing. Much to my surprise I felt my hands disappear. Yet the typing continued. But to find out what it was about I had to read my screen. I couldn’t even feel the words emerging. I fell in love with automatic writing from then on. And I use it whenever I am sending out guidance.
Automatic writing is a great technique to learn. It’s simple and easy. But you do have to have patience. I know it took me quite a while to give over the control of my fingers to another presence. Because it does feel a bit weird at first not to feel my hands. However, I enjoy the work that flows through from those ‘other’ hands. Sharing positive energy is always good. So is being able to send it out into the world.
Day 787 of my blogging challenge
The sun shone. I had my paints out. In the warmth of the morning I tuned in to create more vibrational artwork. It’s a lovely way to open up to intuition.
I’ve been really fortunate with my Guides. They have helped me to explore lots of different ways to open up and use my psychic senses. I’ve learned that guidance can come in many different ways. And I’ve also learned that there are boundaries to be pushed within me so I can channel vibrational energy in differnt ways. That’s what I love about painting and drawing. It’s a completely different way to share a message from Ener Beings. Although when they drifted the idea across my mind the first few times I was really doubtful. I thought psychic art was all about the faces of loved ones in Spirit. But my Guides knew different.
I was put on the spot to draw the energy flowing through a group where messages were being given. I picked up the chalks reluctantly. Then I watched myself draw a pattern of colours that made perfect sense. To me and to everyone else. And I heard someone confirm that they had seen the same thing clarevoyantly. It was mind blowing. But it took me another year or so to get into painting. Yet when I did I found myself feeling the presence of other Beings. In fact a whole queue of Beings. All ready to share their vibrational energy with me so it could be transferred to the canvas or paper. Letting myself respond to the requests to paint I noticed that many pieces had faces hidden in them. And that the colours refelcted the personalities of the painters.
I also found that working in a range of vibrational energies made my intuitive connections stronger. After a short time I was able to sense better, get message information clearer and stay in the link for longer.
My clarevoyance also improved. It’s the weakest of my psychic senses but working with my creative, visual ability certainly helped it to expand. Now I encourage people to get into art in any way they can. I know it will help them work their intuitive psychic senses. It’s also fun. That’s the positive vibe that Energy Beings like as it makes connecting easier. The best way to start is to grab some coloured pencils and paper. Then play. I like to pick up whatever pencil I’m drawn to, put it on the paper and start to doodle. Keeping my mind as unfocused as possible I invite my Guides to make a connection for me. Because I want to draw on their behalf. So my thoughts need to stay out of the way.
I know that my Ego mind will want to direct me. Trying to make something recognisable. But I always remind myself that Energy Beings see our world in a different way. And what interests me is their viewpoint. Over the years I’ve become much better at occupying my mind and ignoring what my hands are doing. Because sometimes I work with my non dominant dominant hand. So it’s a lovely surprise to see what has been captured on the paper. From paper and pencils I moved into using encaustic wax, acrylic paint, watercolour Andy pastels. Certain communicators like paint, some want watercolour, or charcoal or whatever. I go with whatever I’m prompted to use. The vibrational energy is transferred whatever I create.
If you have been searching for a way to practice your intuitive psychic abilities vibrational art is a great thing to try. I know I had to stick with it past all of my inner critic’s comments. If you do I am sure you will discover a whole new way of connecting.
Day 646 of my blogging challenge
I was looking for a morning off. Headlining into Leeds with my daughter. Delighted to spend some time in Waterstones. A book store with a cafe. Perfect!
I love a chance to be surrounded by books. Probably my favourite treat. And if I can get a latte whilst I browse I feel like I’ve had the best treat. So today I seized the chance to have a trip out. A bit close to my holiday break but I’ve been working hard. I felt I deserved it, I thought. As I wandered through Leeds station I spotted some notebooks. Purple pens. I’m a bit of a sucker for stationery. New notebook tucked into my bag, plus purple pen, I set off to Waterstones. Not to use the notebook. But to do a few ‘tasks’ to clear my desk for my holiday. Because I can get a bit fraught if I feel I’ve left things undone.
As I settled in with my iPad to a little bit of work I felt really relaxed. I also pulled my Passion Planner out of my bag to check a diary date. That’s when it happened. I found myself reaching for my new notebook. And that pen. My arm felt heavy. My fingers seemed to have a mind of their own. Oh, I thought, someone is here. Then I set off writing at a speed that was hard to keep up with. Before I’d finished writing one thing the next one was in my head. My hand and the pen were struggling. Slow it down I insisted. The thoughts went a bit slower for about fifteen seconds. Then my hand was off in a hurry again.
In the middle of Waterstones the Spirit or Energy Being channeled a whole list of sayings for a set of oracle cards. Then started to download the meanings!
I was busy thinking ‘more work’. Trying to hold on to what had been said. All around me people were chatting, reading, shopping in Waterstones. It felt a bit surreal. It’s happened before but not usually with so much insistence. I wondered why the hurry. And if this was the way I would spend my train journey on Thursday. Writing up these notes. Getting them ready for production. Eventually the energy started to die back. I was laughing to myself. So much for a quiet morning. With no work so to speak.
I love inspired writing. Because when they drop into my head I know that I will always learn something. The inspirations they gave me will remind me of important things to think about. They can be shared much wider than me. I also loved that they had chosen Waterstones to contact me. About twenty feed from where I sat was the shelf where mind, body and spirit books were stacked. Along with some packs of oracle and tarot cards. A sort of ‘if you dare’ challenge. Asking me to think about my own book and oracle pack being on those shelves. If I dream big enough. Finally, I thought, shades of J K Rowling, lol!
Well done Waterstones. I had a wonderful morning doing what I love best. Sitting letting the Energy Beings communicate with me. All in all a great start to my holiday.
Day 596 of my blogging challenge
One of the techniques often used to develop communications with Energy Beings is automatic writing. Today my daughter was busy practicing so that she could get messages from her Guides. It developed into an interesting discussion about what automatic writing is, how to do it and what might get in the way of clear communications. I love writing messages down. It’s a wonderful way of opening up to our psychic abilities and giving our intuition muscles a good workout.
The first question is of course, what is automatic writing? There are two ways of using writing to connect with both our own higher side and other Energy Beings. The first is what I call inspired writing. Using the hand you normally write with you allow yourself to write down whatever drops into your mind. You can ask specific questions by writing them down too. Then you allow yourself to write the answers you get. You can use two different coloured pens if you want to make the question & answer stand out more. The more you practice the more you are able to remove the doubting thoughts that naturally pop in whilst you are writing. You can find that the writing flows along, especially if you don’t try to read and digest what you are writing. I always recommend reading what you have written only when you feel like the information has stopped coming in. However, this type of writing is still largely under the control of your concious mind. It is using the patterns you have formed by writing with your dominant hand – the one that has been trained to write for your thoughts. It’s harder for an Energy Being to take gentle control over the movements of this hand for that reason.
If you decide you are ready to try something more outside your comfort zone then it’s time to move on to automatic writing. Automatic writing happens when the level of influence the Energy Being has over the writing is much greater. So automatic writing is usually practiced by using your non dominant hand. Most of us have the ability to write with both hands when we are children but as we develop cognitive abilities we start to prefer one hand over the other to grip or manipulate objects. The least used hand is often unable to produce the well recognised writing of our dominant hand so putting the pen or pencil in the non dominant hand can feel very odd. And what first appears as the pen moves around can look like random scribbles, dots and lines. The best way to allow the experiment to happen is to put the point of the pen on the paper and then look at something else. Allow your attention to be focused on whatever else may be going on in the room. For instance, I often do automatic writing while I’m watching the tv. It really is best if you can ignore what is happening to your hand and the paper. With patience and repetition you might find that words are starting to appear. Even sentences.
When we allow our control over the least used hand to drift away the Guides around you are able to blend their energy with your aura energy in a way that means they can influence what you are writing. You may even loose the feeling slightly in your hand as they direct the pen and write their messages to you. These messages are always a surprise as there is no concious thought process. As you get better at giving the control of your hand to your Guides you may also notice that different types of handwriting appear. It’s at this point that it’s worth saying what can get in the way of automatic writing happening. Working with a positive mindset is always best. Look forward to what may be written and hold the intention that the messages will be helpful. Trying to write when you are stressed, too interested in what is being written or when you feel frustrated that you might not be getting anywhere disturbs the energy connection. If you feel unsure about practicing either inspired or automatic writing that will also disrupt the energy of your connection. Being in a hurry for results you may find that you have inadvertently blocked yourself too. I also find that writing in a positive energy place is helpful in clearing the line of connection. My daughter decided to try hers during the church service I was doing today as the Spirit energy was strong.
Finally, who might be writing the messages to you? When you start inspired or automatic writing it’s most likely to be your Guides who want to talk to you. I always ask my Guides to be around me when I’m writing and to keep any low level Energy Beings away. I’d rather find out about interesting and positive things than have a conversation with someone who may only want the equivalent of gossip. As with meeting any new person I want to build up trust with the writer so always ask for evidence of who is talking to me. That includes asking for confirmations from my Guides and Inspirers to be given outside of the writing activity. I enjoy this way of developing my intuition and strengthening my ability to make connections. So if you can spare a little time why not try inspired or automatic writing?
