How To Use Scripting To Manifest Your Ideal Day

Today I wanted to share something I fell in love recently – scripting to manifest my ideal day. Taking the time to plan my ideal day – from the second I wake up to the time my head hits the pillow – has really enabled me to understand what I want from my future and see my vision for my career, my house, and my overall lifestyle without the foggy glasses on I’ve been wearing recently.

If you’re feeling slightly off kilter or lost in which direction to turn next, this exercise can be a complete game-changer. But first let’s take a look at what I mean by scripting.

what is scripting?

Scripting is a technique used in manifestation which sees you sitting and journaling as if your dreams have already happened. Like a “dear diary” moment for your dream life.

When done on a regular basis, it’s designed to help program both your conscious and subconscious mind by focusing on what it is you really want from life and how you will feel when these things arrive. For example, if you want to attract your dream job, you would sit and script along the lines of…

“I’m so happy that I finally work in my dream job as an interior stylist. Waking up this morning I couldn’t wait to get into the office and start planning our next shoot. The team have been so welcoming, and I can’t believe how lucky I am to be getting paid to do a job I truly love.”

Can you see that, even though you might not be working as an interior stylist (or whatever your dream job may be) right at this moment, scripting allows you to step into that reality and experience how you might feel internally when your dreams become a reality.  

How Does Scripting Help Manifest Your Dreams?

Personally, I notice such a shift in attracting things into my life when I take the time to write them down and be specific about what I would like.

When you start to write in a relaxed, freehand way, your subconscious mind (the part of your brain that acts as the data bank for every single memory, thought and emotion you’ve ever experienced in life) starts to push things to the forefront of your brain such as answers to questions you didn’t realise you knew, things you didn’t realise you wanted, or emotions you thought you’d forgotten about.

It also allows you to become clearer about what you really want from life. When I first started to script, I would notice myself writing things I thought I should write, but when that happened, I quickly stopped, turned a fresh page and started again.

This can happen, especially if you’re worried about somebody reading your journal, but once you forget this (and find a good hiding spot), it becomes much easier to write your truth.  You want to be rich? Write that down. You want to live alone? Write that down.

For example, instead of just putting up a picture of Santa Monica on my vision board, I can write…

“I love having the freedom, money, and opportunity to come to Santa Monica for a whole month, exploring LA. Walking along the beach every morning and seeing the Californian coastline in front of me makes me so free and like I can achieve anything.

When I script on a morning, I feel my vibrations raise almost instantly. Storytelling is a love of mine regardless, so being able to write the story of my own life and see what is actually possible puts me on such a natural high.

So How Do I Script My Ideal Day?

Start from the second you wake up. Think about the bed you wake up in, who you wake up next to, if anybody. What sounds can you hear? Is it still and quiet in the English countryside, or do you hear the busy streets of New York? What time is it? What does your bedroom look like?

Going into as much detail as possible, in the first person and in the present tense, allows you to really feel the emotions you would feel living that life.

I wrote eight pages, back and front, when I first started scripting to manifest. But as I sat and scribbled down whatever was coming into my mind, realisations started to appear. I wanted to wake up in the quietness of the countryside, which isn’t something I’d thought about before. There weren’t any children just yet in my ideal day.

I described every single detail of my day, from the underfloor heating to the yoga I did in our huge living room with floor to ceiling windows. I wrote about the wardrobe I had filled with beautiful dresses from Anthropologie, and the job I loved (I didn’t have to manifest much for this as I’m already living it).

It was SO MUCH FUN thinking about all the different parts of my ideal day, and reading it through gave me such clarity about where I see my life progressing over the next couple of years. It gave me a clear vision which then allowed me to start putting steps into action now to make these things happen in my future.

But What Then?

With anything manifestation related there are various views and opinions on whether you should script daily. Time restrictions mean sitting and writing eight pages daily isn’t feasible for everyone, myself included, so I’ve made scripting to manifest a part of my Sunday morning routine, and instead of writing the same day out over and over again, I delve into my future life on holiday, a day off, weekends, amazing things happening with work – and as mentioned above, it’s given me so much clarity over the direction I want to be heading in.

This morning, for example, I wrote about holding a vision board party and having a room of high-vibe women all coming together to plan their futures.

What I would recommend, however, is taking the time each morning or each night to sit and read your ideal life scripts and immersing yourself in the excitement of it becoming a reality. Trust me, you’ll be on such a high. Make it a part of your routine and in 30 days or less, I promise you’ll start to see synchronicities and signs from the universe designed to help you turn these plans into your every day.

    How many days do I have to do scripting manifestation? Do I do it until it comes true or do I just do it for a week and stop? Can I write it twice when I wake up and before I go to bed?

      I’m also new to script manifestation but I’d say do it everyday until you see a sign from the universe and you don’t have to write the same thing everyday switch it up but make sure it’s still in alignment with what you want in life . I’d say write in the morning when you’re fresh and awake and then read it at night . And visualise in your mind during the day . ( hope that helped)

    I can write easier if I type. Can I script by using google docs and writing my ideal day/life in that way? will it still be effective?

      Of course, a lot of manifestation experts say that writing it really sets the intention with the universe, but if you struggle and your energy isn’t going to be in flow, then I would always recommend doing what keeps you high vibe – and that sounds like typing away! 🙂 xx

      Typing is always easier for us technology folks. But I would give writing a shot. There’s something very powerful and effective about the old school ancient method of putting words down on paper with your own hands. The act of writing on paper is more potent for memory too. Which means it’s impressed on the subconscious mind more effectively. I don’t know how you studied as a student, but human memory has better retention when the person would take notes with pen(cil) and paper. There are studies to prove this. Also, you could think of it as you’re channeling all the great mystics of the world as they all used ink & paper of some kind to “cast spells” and prophecy, or dictate mystical instructions.

    This post focuses on using scripting as a tool for your ideal day, but is it as beneficial if you’re focusing on one particular thing rather than a few and are there any tips for this.
