There are many ways to tap into your innate psychic ability. One such way is to use automatic writing. Automatic writing is the process of writing or drawing without using the conscious mind, but rather by tuning directly into psychic knowledge. When someone engages in automatic writing, they have no control over what is being put to paper. Instead, they act as a vessel, receiving information directly from Spirit. It is not unusual for someone who is engaging in automatic writing to be surprised by what ends up on the paper.
There are examples of entire books that have been written as a result of automatic writing. Many spiritual works are purported to have been written through automatic writing. Automatic writing can also be used to get psychic answers if you have a problem or you need guidance about what to do next. Other words for automatic writing include ‘spirit’ writing and ‘trance’ writing. For centuries, spiritual individuals have used automatic writing to receive messages from the spiritual realm.
If you want to get psychic answers using automatic writing, there are a number of steps that can ease your process.
Ditch the computer. While technology can make like easier, when it comes to automatic writing, it’s better to write or draw by hand. Typing is a more logical process, and the logic can get in the way of your psychic connection.
Use your less dominant hand. While this isn’t mandatory, it can be a good idea to use your non-dominant hand. In other words, if you are right-handed, use your left hand for automatic writing. Again, that puts you in a less logical state of mind, which is conducive for psychic communication.

Quiet your mind. Be still and allow the chatter to leave your mind. Meditation, quiet music or prayer may help. Create an atmosphere of reverence. By creating space for something sacred to occur, you create an atmosphere that is conducive to automatic writing.
Allow the writing to flow. Write without thinking about what you’re doing. If you’re stopping and thinking about what to put on the paper, you’re writing with your conscious mind, which is not automatic writing.
