When you’re an intuitive person in tune with your spiritual side, you know that logic can often get in the way of progress. As a soulpreneur, you might find yourself hearing business advice that others swear by, but just doesn’t seem to feed your soul. Always pay attention to your soul.
One way to get clear on what your soul is trying to tell you is to employ the art of automatic writing. Automatic writing is the act of allowing messages to come from the spiritual realm through pen and paper (or computer in this digital age). When you engage in automatic writing, you simply start writing without thinking and allow whatever flows to flow. You may be surprised when you read what you write.
You can apply the art of automatic writing to your business by using it for planning purposes. Get a notebook that is solely used for this purpose and set aside some time on a regular basis. It can be every day, every week or even every month. It really doesn’t matter; go with what your gut is telling you.
Using Automatic Writing for Business
Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed and set the intention that you receive guidance about what to do next for your business. You might do a quick meditation, or maybe you simply feel urged to start writing.
Once you start writing, don’t stop. Keep going for a set period of time, say 20 minutes. Simply dump whatever comes to mind without thinking about it. You might find that at first, your logical mind is dictating what you write, but somewhere in the middle of writing, you may notice a difference in the type of information you’re receiving. That’s likely the point at which your logical gave way to the Universal mind.
This might be an uncomfortable exercise for you to do at first, but that’s ok. And if you feel like nothing happens, that’s ok too. Try again. And again. In time you will begin to feel more comfortable with the concept and you’ll find that automatic writing comes easier for you. You’ll also find that you’re more insightful about your business and have more clarity about where you want it to go.
Interpreting the Messages
When you’re reading what you wrote, keep an open mind. You may find that the things you wrote are different from what you thought you believed about your business. For example, you may have written that you want to stop doing one aspect of your business that you’ve previously been spending a lot of time on. Or you may write about a new idea that you had never thought of.
The messages you get through automatic writing will be more closely aligned with your soul so pay attention to them. Perhaps you’ll want to meditate on what you wrote. You may feel uncomfortable making changes based on what you wrote immediately, but sit with the idea and see if you begin to feel more comfortable in time.
Also set aside time to re-read past entries in the notebook. Time will often give you a different perspective on messages you’ve received from the Spiritual realm. Over time, your business will become more aligned to your soul, and that can only mean great things.
