Automatic writing is the process or production of writing material that proponents claim does not come from the conscious thoughts of the writer. Practitioners say that the writer’s hand forms the message, with the person being unaware of what will be written. In some cases, it is done by people in a trance state. In others, the writer is aware (not in a trance) of their surroundings but not of the actions of their writing hand.
Spiritual Automatic Writing also called Psychography is a concept in the spiritist doctrine by which spirits dictate or take the hand of a medium to write messages, letters, and even entire books.
