Automatic Drawing/writing
Well, i dont have any experience with writing, but because its based on the same meaning, so i unite it with the automatic drawing.

First, have somebody some experience with it ?
Second, whats your metod ?
last thing, do you believe in it as something that can help you to identifi something, to find something, etc.?

for me, the automatic drawing is to, let my hand do what it wants, sometimes i use words to let the hand know what it should target, but doesnt mean it will do so.

i feel like this when i do it:
Its like you think nothing, like not presented there, as you would "shut down", like if you would gaze at something and think nothing, thats how i draw, but the hard part is to, not awake by what the hand draw, something like this wow a nice picture, i could do this and this and this and it will look perfect.

as for the spiritualism part, dunno i know lots of claims that it worked and that you could draw the place where the lost child is, or what part of body is ill and so one but i never did automatic drawing for something like this so i cant say if it work but what i can say, its interesting what you get from it and i like it.

some exampls:

Re: Automatic Drawing/writing
Most of my best art pieces start out that way.
I have done a few "head dump" pictures where they're just stuff thrown together by my hand. Unplanned and uncontrolled. (such as : http://freetha.deviantart.com/art/Out-of...d-76252148)
I am able to shut down, or rather still, my thought processes. Slow down the mill and think of nothing what so ever. This is usually the state I go into when I do my art. I'm not thinking. I'm perfectly concentrated and perfectly focused but there's no "thought". There are few exceptions and even if I start and work out my picture like this there are times I step back and manage the edges so as to control what it is I produce.
So I start my pictures with automatic drawing. I do alot of the shading and working of angles in this state. But I also step out of it for the sake of controlling my art.
When I don't do anything other than clean it up and add a little extra shading but otherwise let the picture produce itself entirely, I call it a "head dump" picture. I make quite a few of these, sometimes more (when stressed or nervous or "thinking too much") sometimes less, but all in all I don't share these often. The one I linked to is the only one I've got online actually.

I do believe that it's possible to draw or write something from your subconsciousness. That is, you might be able to observe symptoms and subconsciously associate them with an illness of X and "that" is why it leads you to draw the part of the body that is ill.
I think it might be possible to use this for maigic related readings as well, but as such I would approach it with equal skepticism to everything else I am exposed to magicwise. (Until I've seen it work for 90% of the time, I can't say it's anything more than a coincidence.)

Re: Automatic Drawing/writing
I've tried automatic writing, but it's always transferred into an entirely different alphabet in what I believe is a language I don't entirely understand. Further complicating my problems translating this is my confidence that I have atrocious handwriting.

Re: Automatic Drawing/writing
In highschool i did several automatic drawing pieces while in class. It was something to keep my hands busy while i listened to lectures. The best one's I've done have been when i zone out and just let my hands have fun. i don't do them as much in college since i have to pay more attention to notes if i want to pass the exam, but here are some of the one's I'm most proud of:

[Image: Spiralfly_by_chaitea16.jpg]
This one i defiantly did without paying attention. Otherwise i would have gotten dizzy and all you'd see on the paper would be vomit

[Image: Fallen_by_chaitea16.jpg]
Yay negative feelings. they're good for something

[Image: Strung_Out_by_chaitea16.jpg]
thank you boring psychology class

I have a bunch more of these amongst note pages and all over folders. The best one's happen when i pay the least attention to what i'm doing.

Home is where the hoard is

i do that too, it helps me to calm down, sometimes, when i finish a drawing, i feel like i would take a nice warm bath.

Re: Automatic Drawing/writing
Oh....it's too bad I only practiced this BEFORE the unfortunate incident with the mental hospital, otherwise I'd have hard copies to show. Unfortunately, I associated all my synaesthetic drawings, automatic drawing, "conversations" with my "selves" and with possible entities, as secrets, a byproduct of my soul...children, in a sense. And when the cops raided my backpack that day they took a lot of drawings and writings, and figured maybe there was more in my room, and got my parents to root around for stuff while I was in jail. Then the shrinks at the hospital made photocopies of a lot of it (probably more than what they showed me when they were asking me "what did you mean by such and such"
A secret, if stolen in such a manner, ceases to be a secret...I felt like I'd been raped, I felt like my children had been murdered. So once I finally got home, I cremated the original copies of everything I know that they saw, and everything I suspected they looked at.

However I do still have a case where one spirit, "Aggron the Insane / Heartless One" spoke through me, but got mad when I gave him a mental hug but didn't want to progress any further with him/it. So he stopped "talking" to me. I'll have to scan it once I have a working scanner, hopefully by then I'll wander across this post again and remember <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->

Re: Automatic Drawing/writing
I tried it once, I ended up writing in Gaelic somehow. The spelling was terribly off since I just wrote it how I pronounced it, though <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

ETA: Spanky if you don't mind me asking, what happened? It's horrible that people went through your stuff though <hugs and cookies>

This one is part automatic, I remember painting the tips of the wings, but the figure in between the wings just kinda showed up. I've always found the red line across her chest to be kinda disturbing.

Sorry it's blurry I had to turn the flash off to get it to not be really bright. (also her legs are longer but I had to crop it)
