My father had taught me about the Law of Attraction when I was seventeen years old. I thought it was a bunch of fluff in high school, but the older I got I became more open-minded to this manifestation technique he often talked about. To break it down, the Law of Attraction is the law of the universe that “like attracts like”; this law also is based on your energy and the vibration you send out to the universe. The universe listens and only responds to your vibrations and it’s not your job to worry how you’ll manifest it.
Whether you believe in the Law of Attraction or not, there is one thing you need to do in order to live abundantly and that’s to get clear on what you want. Now before you go into a panic frenzy, it’s okay to not know exactly what it is you want but you must have some idea.
That's where scripting comes in.
First, get clear on what you want and write it as if it’s already happened. Don’t think about how it’s going to happen, but just write it as if you are living the life you've always desired or attained what you wished for. It can be as long or as short as you like. It can also be about one aspect of your life or your whole life in general. There are no limitations in scripting but you must also feel as if it’s already happened. This is important.
When I script I like to write about my life in Europe. My dream has always been to be an author and have a writing nook overlooking the beautiful cityscape somewhere.
My scripting looks a little like this:
Today, I walked down to the cafe and ordered myself a chocolate croissant and a cafe latte. I took a moment for myself and decided to people watch for a bit. Afterwards, I went to the bookstore and browsed around for new inspiration and found just the book! I decided to grab lunch at the park with a good friend of mine as we chatted for hours about what was happening in my life including my upcoming book tour. I got back home and settled in my writing nook with so many ideas from the conversation I just had. I’m really loving the weather right now – sweater weather, but still warm enough for me to handle.
This is a very short version of what a “day” looks like in my head. It’s detailed, but not to the point where it distracts me from the whole point of the exercise which is to let the words and emotions naturally flow. I wasn’t worrying about which country in Europe I would be living in or how realistic it would be to rent an apartment there. I wasn't distracted by the visa process or how I would be able to afford a flat. Everything I had written flowed naturally and almost easily – and it should be.
Let go, be detailed without getting attached to the "works." Leave it up to the universe to deliver it to you. Your job is to be as creative and excited as you can be putting your dreams onto paper.
Now, give it a try!
