There is something quite interesting when it comes to a form of writing called “automatic writing”. If you haven’t heard of the phrase, it’s worth getting to know a little bit about the writing form, as it can help you in various areas of your life. Today, let’s take a look at how automatic writing can benefit you.
What is Automatic Writing?
Automatic Writing is defined as the writing which comes spontaneously from a person’s mind. The writer is not consciously involved in the thought process of writing something when there are experiencing such an occurrence. Though the person himself is writing through his or her hand, they are actually unaware of what he or she is writing. Automatic Writing is usually done during a trance like state though it can also be done in a non-trance state as well. The writer has no prior knowledge or information about what he or she writes.
Benefits of This Technique
There are several benefits of Automatic Writing. It has been known to help writers, psychics, and therapists to do their work more efficiently. In the medical field, Automatic Writing is used for the purpose of therapy. It is also used in religion for Spiritualism related purposes.
Automatic Writing Used in Therapy
Automatic Writing is one of the significant tools used in Freudian psychology. It is also used in other ‘self-knowledge studies’. It helps to serve the purpose of gaining inside information within a person by the choice of words he uses while doing Automatic Writing. Initially, automatic Writing was used by Pierre Janet in France, Morton Prince and Anita Muhl in the United States.
Automatic Writing in Religion
In religion, such writing is predominantly used in Spiritualism. One of the most famous Automatic Writers of early 20th century was Helene Smith, whose purpose of writing was to show how Martians communicated with Earth. Helen Smith’s ideas greatly influenced the Surrealist Movement. Over the years it became an important part of this movement.
Another great benefit of automatic writing is that that it allows you to get information about the personal life of a person. It is a means of connection between a person’s psychic realm and the physical realm. Furthermore, it also helps you in communicating with a person who is not present in the physical world. This means it can aid you in communicating with your dear or loved ones, famous people or even your spirit guide. It also helps writers suffering from ‘writer’s block’ to come out of it and tap into their imagination and creativity skills.
