Automatic Writing - A Story of Light
‘Automatic Writing – A Story of Light’
By Tony DeLorger © 2010
In my early twenties I discovered that my natural intuition was more than that and being an inquisitive person I examined the events and understandings of my young life. Along the way I met a well-known medium from Sydney Australia who told me that I was a natural medium and asked me whether I wanted to understand and pursue what that meant. Being young and a sponge for knowledge I agreed, and thus began what was to be a long and fascinating relationship.
Margaret was a medium of tremendous talent, a minister of the Spiritualist church and one of the most hardworking selfless human beings I have ever met. She was and remains a bright light within humanity. After several years of study and development, Margaret and I formed the ‘School of Metaphysical Sciences’ and began to run schools for the development and understanding of the spiritual realm through meditation and instructional lectures. During this period of time my personal development reached a zenith and my life transformed in every respect. I became incredibly sensitive and my intuition beyond my own understanding, but with the understanding and control that Margaret had trained and instilled in me.
Before each of my lectures, I would pray and meditate for about half an hour. It was then that I was opened to yet another miracle of life’s mysteries- automatic writing. Years before I thought of such things as demonic at best, yet here I was engaged in the very activity that scared the hell out of me. But the surprise was that what came out of the writing was kind, loving and balanced. So I intentionally sat before each lecture and opened this new door. What found its way to paper was the subject of each lesson and what was to follow in discussion at my lecture. I was amazed and the lecture participants astounded. We found ourselves feeling privileged to be apart of this extraordinary phenomenon.
One unextraordinary evening I sat as always to gather the evening’s lesson. But this night turned out to be not like any other. Unlike the calm of my usual sittings, I felt excited and filled with energy, an energy that was ever increasing. When the writing began it wasn’t slow and well constructed as was the norm, but it was absolutely frantic. I felt my hand scribbling at a phenomenal rate, and unintelligible I would have thought, sitting there with my eyes clenched shut, my mind a scramble of bombarding thought.
After what I found out to be only twenty minutes, the energy subsided and I opened my eyes slowly, feeling I had been run over by a bus. To my shock the pad in front of me was in pieces, but on each torn piece were these strange symbols, fifty-six in all. Next to each was a written explanation of their meaning and at the top of one piece the name ‘Life Grid’.
In the days that followed the symbols, which were all numbered, I assembled into a grid seven across and eight deep. After looking closely at this grid of symbols, one kept reoccurring in my mind, drawing my eye constantly back to it. So I looked up the meaning and to my shock it described a problem I was having and what I was to do about it.
I slumped back on my chair with my mouth open and realised what had been given me. The next lecture I sat in meditation and asked what this was and what should I do with it. The explanation- It was simply a door to understanding where we are spiritually, physically and mentally. One symbol always draws you to it and thus gives you the message you need. Asking a question is also a way to use the grid.
Since then every person who has received the grid has been amazed how accurately it has given advice and understanding. In 2004 I published ‘The Life Grid’ under a pseudonym and since then many people have used this odd event in my life.
This of course begs the question, can this automatic writing be a misunderstood happening, perhaps it is based on the person experiencing it rather than the source. I used to think of it as demonic. However, having experienced the joy and insight it has given, I can only surmise that where ever it has come from, it is given to assist humanity and in a most loving and positive way.
