Automatic Writing is a form of mediumship
or spiritual communication. It is important to clear the mind and allow the pen to flow onto paper on an unconscious level. In order to do this sometimes words, drawings, or scribbling are written while the eyes are closed or the person will write with their non-dominate hand as a way of opening themselves up to esoteric messages. A modern version of automatic writing is to unconsciously type on a keyboard onto a blank screen.
