Automatic Writing: Spiritual Channelling - Your Spirit Guide
When someone says, "It's all in the mind," ask them what their mind is.
Welcome to Automatic Writing Spiritual Channelling Your Spirit Guide. This Hub was originally Chapter Fourteen of my book, The Way . The Chapter was dropped and the book retitled: Who Stole Your Happiness . So here we are concerned with happiness- something we all want...
"Channelling what?" you might ask
A selection of some of the Self-knowledge-the type Hubs I present would not be complete unless it contained a little about the subject of Channeling. “Channeling what?” you might ask. Are we talking ghosts? Departed loved ones? Spiritual guides and mentors? Or are we talking the very highest part of ourselves- our Highest Self? And the answer has to be: all of these. How can it not be? Our essence is that which creates the universe. The Observer brings it into being. This is what quantum mechanics is telling us, if I am interpreting various famous scientific writers correctly. We turn the wave forms into particles. We are part of a “Self Aware Universe,” a part of it The All. Roberto Assagioli says we are “a centre of consciousness with a will,” and that sensation, emotion-feelings, impulse-desires, imagination, thought, and even intuition, are but elements of us, “elements of the mind.”
We are part of Universal Mind
We are part of Universal Mind. It may be an infinitesimally small part, but like one individual water-atom amidst an endless ocean, we are no different, in our essence, from the rest of that ocean. This is the Divine Dichotomy. This is the big riddle. We are unique, separate, discrete beings, yet we are also a part of The Whole. So when we channel a spirit, be it the soul of our dear departed maternal grandmother, the outlaw Billy the Kid, Mother Teresa, or a spiritual guide who we name or who provides us with a name, or whether we just refer to our guidance as my Higher Self, it is all valid. If you can think it, it exists somewhere. If you can think of someone, they exist somewhere. There is no such thing as no thing. There is no such thing as nothing.
Does an imaginary character you write about really exist?
Suppose you are a writer of fiction. You imagine a character and write about him or her. Does the character really exist? As far as you and I living on this earth plane is concerned, “No.” that character is imaginary. It’s just something in the mind. But it has to exist in the imagination and the imagination is another dimension. It is not a “No thing.” That dimension must be able to hold shape and form, otherwise you’d never be able to get anything tangible about your character into you own personal mind-space. You create it. And although not of this earth, it does, at that time, exist.
Practice in this sort of thing won't make you a 'weirdo'
What has this got to do with happiness?
What the hell has all this got to do with happiness? you may ask. A lot. Why? Because as an intelligent, questioning human being, you cannot attain to happiness unless you can discover, or adopt, or claim a philosophy of life that you can live with. If you think your life is purposeless, that you are just born, shop, suffer and die, you’ll find yourself becoming increasingly unhappy as time progresses. A purposeless life is an unhappy life. As a young man or young woman you might put your analysis of your own life on the back-burner for a while. But eventually the specter of death and final annihilation will raise its ugly specter. Your ego won’t like that. It won’t like it at all.
Automatic Writing, Spiritual Channelling, Your Spirit Guide - Yes, we need the keywords
However, when we begin to realize that we are part of The Whole; that the essential us is an immortal spirit, the natural corollary is happiness. “Ah, there is a point to it all.” Wonder what it is as far as I am is concerned? And at around that point you start to become a serious seeker of the truth. Serious does not mean unhappy. On the contrary, it arouses hope. Hope turns into anticipation. Anticipation turns into belief. And belief eventuates in knowing.
Oh, and knowing isn’t an intensified belief. Knowing comes from experience! Once you’ve experienced who you are, doubt is forever removed.
So to channeling.
As we become more spiritual in nature we open up our innate abilities
As you become more spiritual in nature, whether that be through doing good works, earnest prayer, serious meditation, or whatever, you will gradually discover that you are opening up innate abilities such as clairvoyance, clairaudience and such like. We all have these abilities within us. They evolve as we evolve. They gradually come into manifestation. We are advised not to seek them for their own sake. These extra senses are meant to become our tools. They are ours to use. But it’s best to use to them not only for our own benefit, but for the benefit of all.

When we think about someone departed we draw their attention to us
Should we decide to dabble in the esoteric simply out of curiosity, it is quite likely we will come up against spiritual beings on those levels closest to the earth plane. Here you could be fooled by very ordinary departed souls who will delight in having a joke at your expense. You see, if they want to, they can see you. But unless you’re a particularly gifted clairvoyant you can’t see them. This is how it has been put to me. Such souls have no interest in you as a rule. But they begin to take interest, if you do. What draws them is your thinking about them.
All sorts of grandiose claims might be put to you: they are Napoleon Bonaparte, Cleopatra, Genghis Khan or even Jesus Christ. It is surprising how gullible people can become when they start being able to record messages from ‘the other side.’
There can be danger here
There can also be danger here. This is especially the case if those dabbling in occult matters start taking messages from people who were of very nasty character whilst living on earth. Such might claim to be God, or some such, and order you to do certain things you know are wrong. They might even take over your mind as a ‘voice or voices’ in the head. In the Bible this is known as possession. Treat it seriously. Refuse to take part in any action you know is immoral or evil. If you don’t do what you’re bidden, such entities quickly lose interest.

Broadly speaking, the sorts of soul or entity you attract will be in direct proportion to your unfolding spirituality. The higher your level, the higher their level. If you seek the truth, want guidance, are very sincere in your desires and your motives are selfless, you’ll quickly find yourself being given guidance by entities from somewhat higher planes. An entity might give himself or herself a name. Quite likely it won’t be their real one. They can ascertain from your aura- which they can see at will, I suspect - exactly where you stand from the gullibility, intelligence and spiritual levels. I’ve a dozen or more books on my bookshelves by best-selling spirituality authors who refer ad nauseum to the validity of their guides. Nearly all these guides seem to have extraordinary mystical-type names
In the 1960s even the universities wouldn't touch such an esoteric subject as what's written here.
My own experiences in began in 1968
In my own case, I commenced channelling – it used to be called mediumship in those days – in 1968. For a month or so I was fooled around with by mischievous lower-level entities, who had me do all manner of stupid things. They were doing it for a laugh- at my expense. Then an entity (U.R.) claiming to be my spiritual guide, and two lesser guides, the latter claiming to be friends from former lifetimes, were my companions via the automatic pen (typewriter, actually) for the next twenty years or so. By that time, I’d commenced serious meditational practices (1986) A new guide was introduced- Hector. He stayed a while. Then another. The claim was made that they’d gone as far as they could with me. There was really not that much more they could teach me, was the message I was getting. Frequently I was told that I had many people on the “other side” keeping an eye on what I was doing. One had to wonder if this was wishful thinking, vanity, or the actual truth? Then I was introduced to my Higher Self, or my Highest Self. And it is that stage that I am at now. Though I’m still contacted by spirits claiming to be separate from me.
A Message from my Higher Self regarding my current book
This is not meant to be a book on Auto Writing or Channeling. I’ve already completed quite a number of these. But I would like to see what my Higher Self has to say about what I’ve written here. So I ask my Higher Self, right at this moment, to respond if He/She/It will.
You are going to be a great success, in that you’re endeavoring to convey a lot of generalized information to as wide an audience as practicable. You will not, however, convince many that what is happening now is not you, Arthur Thomas Ware, writing consciously. That will only be known to those who are ready and able to believe it.
You see, Tom, belief is the key here. Whatever you believe you ultimately receive into your life. If you don’t believe it, it will not arrive.
Automatic Writing, Spiritual Channelling, Your Spirit Guide
My advice to you and to your readers is to always be aware of what is habitually within your and their minds. Be conscious of your thoughts. Think happy thoughts and you will have a happy life.
How do you think happy thoughts? You imagine yourself doing good things for other people: helping them out, giving them small gifts, educating and teaching them, being kind and caring. If you imagine these things, you’ll do these things. If you do these things, the natural spin off is happiness. It comes from feeling good about yourself; loving yourself. When you love yourself entirely and without reservation you will love everyone else. When you love everyone else you will be happy, and you will radiate happiness to all around you. That is the Law. My Law.
You can always show up at a place being miserable. You will then make everyone else miserable. You give out what you have inside. So by eliminating the angst, the hurt, the anger, the rage- all the negativity that is held within your mind-body, that is the ego, by purifying yourself, your purify your world. And the purer the world, the purer and more glad to be alive in it you all will be.
Know that you truly can have anything you want- anything! Choose happiness. Choose light, love and laugher. In that way you will be happy all the days of your life, and remain happy even as you come back to what is the essential you – Me.
Goodbye for now, and I wish you well in your writing…
