Writing from Your Unconscious
If you choose to use automatic writing to tap into your unconscious, you have the option of dealing with the past or the future. In terms of writing about the past, you may want to tap into a soul memory. If this is the case, you probably already have a specific time period in mind that you want to write about. Remember your five different senses: seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting, and smelling. Use the images that are the strongest for you so that you can step into the image in your mind.
You may begin to feel like you are observing a play. Make sure you let yourself describe as much of the action and surroundings in all your sense imagery possible. You may hear sound or voices. If so, write down what you are hearing. Listen for as many sounds as possible, and make sure you note them as you write.
You may find that you are actually experiencing the images you are recording while you are in your automatic writing trance. If this is the case, record the emotions, the temperature, tastes, sights, and smells that surround you. You may become a character in the story. Perhaps you are able to step into your writing and experience whenever you want, and at other times step back and watch the action. Some of you may be able to do just one or the other.
Jess Stearn, a biographer of Edgar Cayce, also worked on a biography of Taylor Caldwell and used hypnosis to take Caldwell back to visit some of the past lives that she would write about. The Search for a Soul: Taylor Caldwell's Psychic Lives was the result of this research.
Where do these psychic experiences come from? Is it just your imagination, or did you tap into a source of knowledge of the past? Perhaps it is a memory of a past life or images given to you by the Universal Mind, or maybe you have tapped into another dimension of time. These questions are up to you to decide.
After you have finished your session, allow yourself some time to readjust to the present. As you look back over your experience, remember that you stepped into a hologram, whose purpose was to switch your focus from your reality into the reality of the images experienced through your unconscious mind. If you were unaware of what you were writing, it may not make any sense at first. Review your collected data and make notes to help establish your goals for your next session.
Looking into the Future
Writing about the future is not very different. If you'd like to write science fiction and would like to get a more realistic view of the future, you have the option of asking for guidance of the Universal Mind. Remember that if you are able to see into the future, it is a gift you were born with, and all you are doing is developing ways that you can use it to help others and yourself stay in tune with life potentials.
Your intuitive imagination can give you great future-tense stories. If you work with your guidance systems, all you will need to do is enter your automatic writing trance and let the writing begin. Once you get comfortable with the process, you may think of the process as being much the same as going to a play or the movies. All you have to do is let the story be written through you.
Give yourself the suggestion that as you write, you will experience what goes through you in all of your senses. You may also ask that when you end a session, you do not also come to the end of a segment. This suggestion will help your unconscious mind continue to work on the story while you are in your waking state. By the time you start your next automatic writing exercise, the material to be set down is ready and waiting. All you need to do is establish a consistent time when and where you can experience your automatic writing without interruptions.
