For seven years the poet William Yeats drew inspiration from his wife Georgie's experiments with automatic writing. She claimed her hand moved through the force of spirits, and curious readers continue to ask the question posed by Virginia Woolf: "Was it really spirit-controlled discourse? Or was it, on Mrs. Yeats part, either a garnering of her subconscious, or a telepathic reading of her husband's mind, neither of which requires extranatural help? Or was it a fabrication on the part of Yeats and/or his wife? or something else?"
Ultimately it doesn't matter what happened, or who was "in charge" of the pen because the process was generative and revitalizing for both of them. And I don't know if you'll use this recording to channel spirits, or if you'll use it to unlock your unconscious mind and write in a way you've never written before -- but I do know that this 23 minute recording will lead you somewhere worth going, and where you end up will be just right.
The recording asks you to use a pen and paper, but certainly if you prefer typing that's perfectly fine. In 1882 a dentist named John Newbrough authored the book Oahspe by using Automatic writing on the recently invented typewriter, so technology is not a barrier to unlocking this process.
It's possible that what you write will seem incomprehensible or strange to you, so when you have finished the writing, please go to www.mindbodystudies.com/links and download the .pdf "Automatic Writing: A Lesson in Accepting Uncertainty" to help interpret or utilize what you have composed.
