Has anyone experienced automatic writing.
I have been trying to do it which I think I have but is it just subconsciously what I'm thinking or am I being controlled by a spirit?

I've not heard of this before OP apart from the likes of song writers/poets and the likes. I've heard them say some of their biggest hits just came to them, these are the ones that touch others profoundly.
I believe it comes from the spirit within/without.
I don't think a spirit can control you as a separate entity.
Things can come from the brain as well.
Do you want to share some of what you have written down?

I have wrote many things depending on my 'mood' things I didn't even know myself and have been able to work out my fears and what I'm needing to do to improve over all x

That sounds helpful then. As long as it's not effecting you in a negative way I can't see the harm.
I was reading about the Quaker services, where they all sit in silence, sometimes someone is moved to speak, coming from spirit.
I've also heard about people writing books by a similar way.

It helps me clear my thoughts and realise what is making me anxious
