Attunement: An Attunement is a Spiritual Gift from Teacher to student. In some specialized areas of Metaphysics, not only is knowledge given from one to another, but the gift itself can be transferred or awakened within a student by the attuning of that student. You may want to think of it like a piano. The piano can make only the sounds that it is tuned to make. When you give the piano an attunement, it can then perform better. In human form, we are the instruments and as such, the belief in the attunement is one that our Spiritual Energy can be raised, or tuned, to a higher frequency. This practice is believed to unlock additional gifts, or strengthen gifts, at higher vibrational levels.

Automatic Writing / Drawing: Automatic Writing is a form of channeling. However, in traditional Channeling, the Medium allows the Spirit or entity to use their entire body, or possibly just the areas that involve speech. In Automatic Writing, the Medium allows the Spirit or Entity to “write out” messages using their bodies, hands, etc. This practice can be done through pen or pencil and paper, typewriters or computers, etc. The message is written through the medium without conscience thought or knowledge of the living person. In automatic writing the person feels much more like the pen or the typewriter than the author or artist.
