“When I put pen to paper the essence of my inner being and who I am is expressed in a way – I am unable to verbalize.” ~ Eleesha
For those of you who are interested specifically in learning more about my automatic writing gift, for example how I do it and why – then you have come to the right page. I refer to myself as being a naturally gifted automatic writer, because I have been writing in this way since childhood, it is not something that I chose to do or learned. On the contrary, I spent most of my life trying to forget about it and it was not something I willingly chose to do, it simply surfaced unannounced, evolved and began to emerge in my life when I least expected it.
Although I am happy to let you know how my particular form of automatic writing has evolved, enabling me to share thousands of my original auto-written inspirational affirmations, quotes and sayings to inspire people from all walks of life, from around the globe – I can only share what automatic-writing means to me. You see, we are all unique individuals; therefore automatic writing is bound to be represented in various forms among those, who are able to utilize it – in many different ways.
As such, I can only speak for myself and my work is by no means reflective of how other people may carry out their own unique gifts, in their own unique way. I can only share with you, the depth of expression I have for what I do and the fascinating processes that has allowed my particular gift, to come through.
Firstly, let me share more about its origins, to describe exactly how it works for me, and how its inner expression has led me on an amazing journey of Soul discovery, ultimately allowing me to share the essence of its unfolding knowledge; wisdom; and inspiration – with you.
A Dormant & Elusive Gift
The origins of my present day automatic-writing gift, stem directly from my childhood and my inner Soul expression. I will explain a little more about this as we progress; but, suffice it to say that a few years ago, I inadvertently re-awakened a gift, which I had never spoken about to anyone outside my immediate family, and over time it remained dormant and eluded me for decades.
Faded Into Oblivion
The full circumstances surrounding its dormancy, and Soulful origins are explained in great depth in Trilogy Part 1 of my book ‘The Soul Whisperer‘; but , until its sudden re-awakening – its presence; practice; and purpose in my life had simply faded from memory. This elusive period included growing up from adolescence into adulthood; eventually getting married and raising children of my own. So, I was mystified to find its inexplicable re-emergence in my life, once more.
Borne Out Of Tragedy
I would like to have told you that the circumstances surrounding its sudden re-discovery in my life had been borne from an event, which was exciting and celebratory; but, in truth – it did not. On the contrary, its re-discovery was sadly borne out of tragedy, and immense loss. Why? I cannot say, except that suddenly, in the midst of such tragedy – something very special was able to be ignited from within my Soul, and able to transpire and re-emerge, from within me.
Perfect Timing or Not?
Maybe, it was perfect timing, or the fact that – it was ‘I’ – who needed to hear these words more than anyone else? I am still not quite sure, but this gift was re-awakened in my life just at a time when I felt I had nothing, or very little to offer anyone else – least of all, myself.
From The Depths Of Soul
Why these words were suddenly being gifted to me, and were being heard and channeled through, from the depths of my Soul – remains another unanswered question in my life. But, all I can say is that as soon as I began to receive them, I soon recognized them for what they were, and I was immediately compelled to put pen to paper, and to begin auto-writing them down.
Automatic-writing & Soul Channeled
So, a new journey was beginning in my life, the likes of which I never expected in a million years. Indeed, it was so unexpected I was left in a state of bewilderment for quite some time. Let me continue to share the whole process of how I am able to now use this gift and why.
As soon as these inspiring words come through to me, they always go straight into one of my journals, using pen and paper as I hear it (this is a process I have come to refer to as automatic-writing and can also be easily described, in my case, as Soul Channeling). It is very quick, and there is no time for hesitancy or delay, if I do not act then, I know it will be lost. Sometimes, if I am caught unaware, I will grab scraps of paper, tissue boxes or whatever is available to write on – just to make sure I can write down whatever I hear or I am given – right away.
Uncovering Soul Expression
This form of Soul expression, which had laid dormant for so many years had now brought great sense; meaning; and purpose; into my life. The reason I am adamant about sharing the inspiring nature of what I do is that – I believe that by sharing these words of inspiration with others, I can also help others to discover their own inner strengths and powers, and learn how to utilize them. I will clarify what I mean by this, as we move on.
My Personal Writing Experiences
Let me begin by helping you understand the processes and experiences I have, whilst undertaking this form of writing. I believe doing so, will help you fully understand what I do and how I do it, in far greater depth.
Time & Flow
Essentially, I will begin with the time and the flow of what I do. My automatic-writing ‘sessions’ can last from anything on average from 30 minutes to several hours. These are sessions of continuous and non-stop writing. I find that whenever I am writing in full flow it is always a struggle to keep up with whatever is flowing and coming through to me. Funny as it may sound, I have, on the odd occasion, found that the ink from my pen has literally run out on me, because I have just been writing for so long. However, at the end of the day, it is not how much I write, but what I write – that I wish to share with you – I trust that ultimately, you will find what I have to share to be of benefit and great significance, so it can also – be utilized in your life.
Defining My Old & New Automatic Writing Styles
Not long after my gift was re-awakened, I soon became aware that this new ‘awakened’ automatic-writing style of mine, was very different, to the type of auto-writing I had undertaken, as a child. That style was channeled through to me in a very trance-like state and my writing could often be very abstract. Sometimes it was clear and concise, but on many occasions I could not easily understand or decipher, what I had written; so I just gave up trying to work it all out. Perhaps, it was because I was just a child and a little too immature to realize what I was writing about – but, it was definitely a very different process and outcome – to what I do, now.
New Automatic Writing Style
My new automatic writing style is very different, and the process and outcome is far more engaging and pleasing to the eye. There is no detached trance-like state or anything like that, I simply hear like a gentle Soul whisper of words and whatever comes through to me, I feel a great compulsion to write down. It is a simple gentle process, almost like being given dictation or taking down a transcription, from someone that is verbally and quietly speaking to you. As such, my writing style – this time around – is very simple. What I mean is that, the inspirational undertones of the subject matter and content of what Soulfully comes through to me, is always received and understood (even when I read it back later) with pinpoint accuracy and clarity.
Defining My Subject Matter
My subject matter varies immensely, but generally all my work is affirming and always Soul inspiring. In the beginning, I had no say, in the specific subject matter, as every affirmation, quote or passage, would simply come from out of the blue and unfold during the nonstop auto-writing process. This is the foundation of my work and a major part of how all my original affirmations and quotes – come through to me.
Subject Selection & Choice
As I matured, as part of the auto-writing process and I became more aware of what was happening to me, I felt more comfortable with the whole process. I soon discovered that, if I internally requested to receive knowledge about a specific subject or topic then sure enough, everything that came through to me – would relate to that particular subject or topic. This was how I was able to automatically-write thousands and thousands of Soul affirmations and quotes for my Life Series Collection. This process was also used for the affirmation passages and quotes that were shared in Trilogy Part III of The Soul Whisperer book.
A Matter Of Content
With regard to my affirmations, quotes and sayings, even though my subject matter can emerge from out of the blue or be internally requested, the one thing I do not attempt to control or define, during the auto-writing process is the content that comes through. What I mean by this is that, I simply allow the content to flow freely through to me – without any subjection or judgment, from the mind. This enables me to receive a great variety of content spanning many subjects; which can be offered from different viewpoints and alternative perspectives.
Hard-Hitting & Thought Provoking
As such, the content of some of my inspiring affirmations, quotes and sayings can be very direct and hard-hitting – whilst others are more gentle and subtle. Some passages may even come through from a negative point of view, to address a specific feeling or emotion. However, I have noticed that – even when this is the case, it will always end on a positive or thought provoking note.
Auto-Writing Style (Phase I)
I personally have what I now define as, two types of automatic writing styles and processes. The first original style of auto-writing, which I will refer to as Phase I, is an enigmatic process because – with regard to my handwritten affirmations, sayings and quotes, it is very rapid. I have no idea what will flow through to me next, or when, or where. When this happens I have no previous conception about what content will go into each passage; or how each sentence or affirmation will be finally formed; or how it will begin or end.
Outside Looking In
It may sound strange but, during these sessions – I simply allow the words to just flow through to me and then go on from one passage or affirmation, into the next – by simply connecting to the Soul within, using pen and paper. At times, during these sessions, even though my hand is moving and I am writing down every word that is coming through, I can actually separate myself from my Soul connection and switch to my mind and ask questions, or even say to myself things like – “this does not make sense, or where are things going with this?” – but, what I find is that when I Soulfully re-engage, during a session – the affirmations, quotes or sayings are always rounded off, to make perfect sense.
A Process Of Pure Expression
For me, the process of auto-writing and Soul Channeling, by putting pen to paper, is the ultimate Self-expression. This process leaves me free; there is simply no need to stop, or consciously ponder – what to write down next; or how to complete a sentence or structure it. There is also no need to wait and wonder what to say; or how to say it. Indeed, there is also no need to pause, or wait poised with my pen and paper – wondering what to write or how to proceed, or what will follow next. I simply just write down whatever I am given or has been gifted, and it always just naturally flows one after the other, until finished.
Engagement Of Soul & Dis-engagement Of The Mind
If I am having an auto-writing session and I reach a point where I have caught up with the words that are coming through, or I find myself waiting for about 10 seconds or more then I know it is time to stop writing in this way. Because I believe, in order for the process to remain genuine, it must never be forced – but, should remain part of a natural ongoing process. If I am not writing continuously, then I know that I am no longer engaging with the Soul connection and what I am doing instead, is rather engaging the mind – so, I will stop.
Beyond Pen & Paper
After using Phase I of my automatic-writing style for quite some time, I decided one day to try and share the deeper meanings of my affirmations, quotes, and sayings – with some of my readers. Making this decision was a major turning point because; it meant I became obliged to interpret many of my original handwritten affirmations and quotes and include my interpretations, with my Free Daily Inspiration Emails. Thus, my style of automatic-writing began to evolve beyond just pen and paper, into what I now call Phase II.
Interpretation & Insights (Phase II)
When I began to study my original auto-written passages, in an effort to share their deeper meanings with readers, I found that the more I studied them – the more insights and revelations began to come through to me, about the subject matter. I began to recognize that this secondary process was actually an extension of the Phase I, pen to paper automatic writing process. Whereby, Phase II is reserved solely for understanding and interpreting my original Phase I material. This Phase II process is very similar to Phase I, with a few natural variations; so, instead of automatically writing with pen and paper, I can type my Soul inspired insights and interpretations, straight into my laptop.
Phase I & Phase II Subtle & Major Differences
The processes of Phase I and Phase II are very similar, but the main difference is the use of my keyboard, rather than pen to paper. The other differences worth mentioning, is that Phase 1, is always the basis; the origin; or source – upon which the Phase II aspect of my work must begin. In other words, Phase II emerges as Soul-inspired insights; reflections; and interpretations – drawn from my original automatically handwritten affirmations, quotes and sayings. As such, the Phase II automatic writing process is very different – it is not like writing non-stop; instead, it is an ongoing and evolving process. Although it has similar characteristics to Phase I, it takes much longer, because the insights, which come through are not always clear and concise, they are always unfolding and evolving – unravelling, bit by bit. It is like seeing only a small part of a bigger picture. It takes time for the full picture to emerge.
Missing Pieces Of The Puzzle
Phase II, allows me to freely auto-write pages of insights and interpretations, but it does not end there; because, often a day or two later, more insights and revelations will come through, which will relate to previous pages or paragraphs that were automatically-written earlier. I then have to go back and slot the right passages, in the right place. But in both cases (Phase I and II) I must always allow the insights or words to come through to me naturally, so I can correctly decipher where each passage must go and where or how, each insight will eventually fit together.
In many cases, especially for The Soul Whisperer, it felt like trying to complete a puzzle – but, having to wait for verbal instructions about, how to do it and where each piece of the puzzle should fit. This was extremely challenging because, it was as if some of the pieces to the jigsaw puzzle were missing, or many of the right pieces were not being given in sequence, or in the order they should. It seemed that the parts that should have fitted in a sequence only came through – much later.
You have to be patient to continue this type of automatic-writing process. You have to be dedicated to ensure all you receive, even if it appears disjointed can eventually come together – so, finally all the empty slots and missing pieces of the jig saw puzzle, can be found, to display the full picture.
Back To Front
In my case, the process of Phase I and II, both work back to front. For example, in normal cases a writer knows what he or she wants to write, or researches it, then writes it down. But with my automatic-writing process, even if I know the subject matter, I must wait for the content and insights to be unveiled and come through to me, as I do not know what they are – until afterwards. When I was writing my book ‘The Soul Whisperer‘ I used both Phase 1 and Phase II writing processes, for Trilogy Part II and Trilogy Part III of my book.
In the beginning, my book was only about sharing the original affirmations, quotes and sayings that had been automatically written with pen and paper (Phase 1). I did not even realize I was writing about the Soul until several drafts later, when it suddenly dawned on me that everything that was coming through to me, was about the Soul. This happened because every time I sat down to interpret my original affirmations more and more insights just kept coming through. How it works was that – I did not start off knowing what content I wanted to write, then wrote it down. No, this was not the case. What happened for me instead – for both Phase I and Phase II of my automatic-writing process – was that, everything worked the other way around. I wrote what came through to me and only then, did I really begin to understand the extent or depth of my content, and what I was actually being gifted, to write about.
Working On My Book The Soul Whisperer
By interpreting my original automatically written passages, I was able to allow new insights and revelations to unfold. These full interpretations have now come to fruition, and their inner meanings about the Soul, have been shared in Trilogy Parts II and III of my book The Soul Whisperer. Hence, the whole process took me four years to complete, even though I wrote in this manner, virtually every single day.
The challenge with any Soul-inspired automatic writing process is that, because it is evolving – each time I thought I had the complete picture to my puzzle, more insights would come through to me – just as I got to the end of the book, and I would have to go back and incorporate the new insights until it all made sense. At times I was filled with such despair; but eventually, after many years, I realized that the book was complete, when no more insights came through to me. I knew then that, everything that I had been gifted to say about the Soul had now been said, and could be given full meaning in the book by presenting it in a palatable format, to be shared with others.
Presentation of Phase 1 & Phase II
The process of using Phase I, means I rarely need to change my original handwritten pen to paper Soul affirmations; quotes; or sayings. Unless they are too cryptic or require some mild editing for publication, I tend to leave them untouched and they are often left in their original format. The only thing I need to do is transcribe them over from my journals into text notepad. However, when it comes to Phase II of the automatic writing process, I have to make sure any content, which comes through, is not left too disjointed, – but, integrated into context and presented in a palatable format for my readers.
Honored By Sharing
I hope that what I have shared with you has been of value, and I am honored to be partaking of both the Phase I and Phase II automatic-writing styles. In time, I have come to realize that despite their slight variations, both remain an integral part of my self-expression and being. Also, It has recently dawned on me that, both styles do not just naturally complement each other -but one cannot exist, without the other.
More Than Just Words With Meaning
Before I end off, I want to tell you why I describe my work as being more than just words. It is because since their introduction into my life, they have helped change me on a very deep level. They have transformed my thinking and my whole outlook on life in a way and manner that I have never experienced before. Now, if this is possible for me, then it will also be possible – for you, and all those I will have the good fortune to share my inspiration with.
How & To Whom?
However, the key to achieving this is by having a clear understanding about two very important things. It is not just how these words were supposed to be utilized or read – but to whom?
