Is the word “inspired” the root word for”in spirit”or the other way around, “inspired” came from the expression “in spirit”?? Anyone know? Or are they just similar but neither is a root word for the other? I’m reading a Wayne Dyer book about living an inspired life. He talks a lot about being “in spirit” and says when you are “inspired” you are “in spirit”. I am just trying to figure it all out in my head. If they are similar just due to having the same letters or is it something more. When I’m “in spirit” I’m residing at a higher vibration, ie. Energy-wise. Okay. That was worded horribly! Gosh, no wonder Wayne Dyer writes about it, not me – lol! I’ve been seeing that theme show up repeatedly in different books, things I’ve read online, all over etc. I don’t believe in those kind of coincidences. I’m obviously meant to learn about life energy and living my life “in spirit” at a high vibration. I can feel when I’m there or not. Can anyone else? Certain times, when writing I feel almost as if I’m floating and the words are just flying out of me and onto the paper or my iPad, without really clear thought. It just flows out of me.
I have a journal, well, I have numerous journals. I’m kind of a collector of beautiful journals. Often they’re so nice, I don’t want to write in them, I treasure them, if you know what I mean. What I was saying is I have a specific, special, journal that I write in or rather, God writes in, through me. I’ve only told one person about this. I thought that maybe people would think I’m crazy!! I think they call it “automatic writing.” My handwriting physically changes while I am experiencing “automatic writing.”The handwriting doesn’t even slightly resemble mine, it doesn’t look a thing like my handwriting!!! And I have no memory of what I wrote during those sacred moments of automatic writing!
Here’s the definition:
noun: automatic writing
Writing said to be produced by a spiritual, occult, or subconscious agency rather than by the conscious intention of the writer.
Automatic writing or psychography:
Is an alleged psychic ability allowing a person to produce written words without consciously writing. The words are claimed to arise from a subconscious, spiritual or supernatural source.
I went on a retreat once and during the weekend my automatic writing actually happened with many people around. Crazy right! God gave me my life purpose!! (Now you are definitely thinking I’ve gone off my rocker, but it’s all true.) I can write pages and pages in this journal. It’s weird. I feel this strange pull to write. And, even weirder, my hand gets this weird ache just before and while I’m writing. Like it’s telling me it’s time to write. I do think I’m often “in spirit” while writing my blog posts. As readers you must be able to tell the good, flowing, on the ball writing, compared to just grasping at anything, trying to come up with an idea to write about. The good ones aren’t thought out, they just flow out! It’s not quite all the way to automatic writing, but it’s writing while I’m in that higher vibrational state. Which is when I produce my best work. The automatic writing is in that one journal I haven’t shown to anyone. It makes me feel a bit freaked out. It’s like God is passing me the torch and saying “write my child.” If I allow myself to think about it too much while it’s happening, it will stop. That sounded confusing – lol! I basically mean, don’t overthink it, just believe and trust. I can’t let my own thoughts and opinions get in the way of God’s words. I feel so nervous admitting that. However, I feel like I haven’t taken the step that God wants me to take, which is sharing his words. But who am I to think I’m so special that I’ve been chosen to be granted this gift. Won’t people rally and rail against me?? I don’t even know what my own husband would think about all of this. I just know that I’ve been called upon to write. My words, God’s words, just words. Writing is my gig. Maybe it’s not about being special or being chosen. It could just be that I am open to being “in spirit” and at a higher vibration, and that I believe these things to be true, which makes me more susceptible. Who knows why it happens!? It just does. I don’t know what to do with that journal once it’s completed. Hand it out or publish as “God’s word”…I’d likely be ridiculed and also have many angry people asking what I ask myself…”who am I to be given such a gift” and “who do you think you are?? God??” Please believe me when I say that I’m not in any way, shape or form trying to say that I’m God! It’s not like that at all! It’s just that God’s words flow through me and out of my pen onto the paper. Period. I’m not the creator I’m just the scribe. The Spirit Scribe…and now you know the true reason for the name of my blog. Please, if you think I’ve gone Coo-Coo, don’t ridicule or judge me with hatred. Because the biggest themes that come out while I’m automatic writing are about serving others and love for self and others. It’s definitely not about me. Nor is it about hatred, judgement or anger. It is about peace and love and service. If my true purpose is to write God’s words, I had to tell my readers something so huge!! (My readers…like I have such a long list of readers…)
I’m going to stop for now, to let everyone process this newfound information about my potential craziness!! LOL
