Free intuitive writing puts you in touch with the present, often on a very deep level. To try it, open a notebook or journal to a blank page; relax and clear your mind. Then write or draw whatever comes to you, even it doesn't seem to make any sense. Some people find that writing very fast, using their nondominant hand, or writing without looking at the page releases this kind of spontaneous thought.
