“Scripting the Future
Focused Intentions Instructions
WRITING YOUR GOAL IN THE PRESENT TENSE
The 5 steps are excerpted from Spiritual Marketing by Joe Vitale.
A Proven 5-Step Formula for Easily Creating Wealth (or anything) from the Inside Out.
The secret to increasing your business or manifesting whatever you want is:
- Know what you don’t want.
- Select what you do want.
- Clear all negative or limiting beliefs.
- Feel what it would be like to have, do, or be what you want.
- Let go. Act on your intuitive impulses and allow the results to manifest
Step One: Know what you don’t want. (“Man is a magnet, and every line and dot and detail of his experiences come by his own attraction.”)
Write what you don’t want here….
Step Two: Select what you would like to have, do, or be.
The trick is in turning every one of your complaints around to something you DO want. Start focusing on where you want to go, not on where you were or where you are.
Write what you DO want here….
Now here’s the final step:
Write your intention as if you already have it. Write it in the present tense, “I am now…”
Now write the above goal in the “Affirmation” section of the Intentions Summary Sheet. By doing so you will be unconsciously reminding yourself of your intention. Your own mind will then help nudge you in the direction of making your goal a reality. So relax. You just planted a seed in your mind. The rest of this will tell you how to water it, give it sunshine, clear out any weeds, and let it grow. Prepare for your miracles!
SCRIPTING THE FUTURE
The technique to help you in this area is called scripting, from Abraham/Esther Hicks.
The concept is deceptively simple:
- Just imagine that you already have what you want and write out a scene that describes it.
- Describe in such detail that you can feel it. Pretend you are a movie director and write a script for what you want to experience. Really get into it as you write it. Feel it. Sense it.
- Experience it. When you think it and feel it, it comes to be.

VISIONING Your Future
“ESTHER: Abraham, How do you feel about New Year’s Resolutions? And how would you approach a New Year’s Resolution if you were in our physical shoes.
ABRAHAM: They are a wonderful idea. They fall into the same category as Segment Intending or Positive Expectations or Deliberate Creation. Most New Year’s Resolutions, like any new decisions, are made from a rather clear awareness of what you do not want or of what has not gone well, and so, in order to set your New Year’s Resolutions into motion with enough momentum to keep them going, it is necessary to spend some time lining up your energy with your new decision. Many people make resolutions, and often by the first or second day of the new year they have gone back to their old habits, and then they feel discouraged.
Every day provides a wonderful opportunity to set forth your clear intentions. You do not have to wait for a new calendar year.
Find a comfortable place where you will not be interrupted. Write at the top of your notebook page: My Dominant Intentions: Then write four sub-headings: My Current Intentions Regarding My Body, My Relationships, My Home, My Work. Then, write a general description of how you want to feel and be, regarding each of the four categories. Be general and easy. Let these words come easily from you.
Now, go back to the first category, focus on the topic, and sit back, relax, and daydream about this. Imagine your body looking just as you would like it to look. See it in your mind’s eye. Try to imagine how that beautiful body would feel. Move it, in your imagination. Take it for a walk, dress it in something that pleases you. Appreciate it’s stamina and flexibility and clarity. Spend as much time daydreaming about this wonderful physical vehicle as you can. Stay in your vision until you feel refreshed, and continue to be there as long as you can.
Now, go to the second category, and do the same thing. Bring an image of the most significant person in your life experience and see that person with you. Feel appreciation for that person. Mentally speak your appreciation. Imagine that person loving you back. Praising you, and complimenting you. Feel your mutual appreciation and admiration. Stay within the vision until you feel refreshed.
Now, go to the third category, and feel appreciation for your home. Make mental pictures of your home as you want it to be. See it orderly, if you desire that, and beautifully furnished, if you desire that. In an easy and carefree manner, imagine it however you would like it to be. Take pleasure from your vision and stay there until you feel refreshed.
Now, go to the fourth page, and gather a mental picture of your work. Feel appreciation for the excuse it gives you to flow energy toward something. Acknowledge how expansive it is, and feel appreciation for its ever changing nature. See yourself expanding and thriving. Stay there until you are refreshed.
There is no right or wrong way to approach this. The thing that is important is that you choose areas of your life that matter most and that you conjure positive images that thrill you. And as you do that, you have not only resolved, in your own mind, how your New Year will be, but you have notified everyone and everything in the entire Universe and you have solicited their assistance in achieving your intentions. And from that moment forward — the entire Universe will conspire to assist you.
Spend more time focused upon your dream than upon the reality.
The reality gives birth to the dream- but the dream is where you are wanting to put your attention.” ~ Abraham
