Automatic or spirit writing
is the practice of writing while channeling messages from the spirit
realm. Those on the Other Side are sometimes strong enough to

words and messages.
This practice can bring out
messages and information that otherwise may not get channeled, but
caution is always wise when dealing with the other side and energy that
isn't familiar to you.
