Did you know that you could write the screenplay for the rest of your life?
Actually, there is a screenplay for the rest of your life being written right now and who do you think is writing it?
You are – who else would be qualified?
I know, you may wish that someone else were writing especially if you are not very satisfied with the results.
The question to ask yourself is – Is it fresh and new or are you repeating the same familiar plot line you have been using for a long time?
We are always writing our life script even if we are not aware that we are. If we are not aware of this we may not be getting what we want, as it occurs automatically.
You can however write your script consciously and purposefully as you decide.
Looking at the idea of designing your desired life by means of a movie script can be a helpful tool.
Some people are very fluid with their imaginations and can envision many exciting things, situations and attribute for themselves, where others are stuck not able to come up with much of anything other than what they now experience.
The idea of writing a potential script can sometimes be easier when you begin thinking it is for a fictional character. It helps you to see beyond your current reality, which may be all you can focus on.
Sometimes when we try to think about something new in life, our mind defaults back to our current experience and we end up dwelling on that – this does not support change and growth.
This method may allow you to get outside the box of your reality, open up your creativity and allow your deep-seated desires to surface.
Allow your thoughts to just flow, thinking what could happen if this or that occurred. What would a person that ______ be like? How would they think, act and feel. If you are writing for a movie you need to think of all this so the actors can see how to bring your character to life.
Think about the energy and emotional feelings that will be present with the character at a particular time, place and event. If you allow yourself to actually feel them you will best be able to convey them specifically to an actor. (yourself) Allow yourself to get into the smallest details – this will ensure the realism of the character.
You of course then step into the part and enjoy how it feels, experience yourself living with these details just as described.
This can be an on-going project where you keep adding and refining details.
Discussing this with yourself as you go over the details helps open up your thinking and draw out the details of enjoying your desires. You know how easy it is to discuss with yourself things you don’t like – do it that way – with energy and power.
Also, a very powerful part of this exercise is the actual writing. You will be utilizing more facets of your brain when you write this all down as you develop it. First you think about it, then say it to yourself when you write it down, which is a physical/mental action.
Doing these functions with imprint the ideas into your mind in several ways making the impression stronger.
Play the part – in your mind
Imagine in more detail
Describe in more detail
The more detail, energy and emotion you apply to this the stronger it is
Remember, you don’t need to have actually done something before – only imagine it and feel it.
Now that you have this well described script describing what you want in your life – you have something to act on.
Give yourself some time and be patient with this – it may take a little time to get use to doing if you are not accustomed to thinking like this.
It would help to start out with getting yourself relaxed mentally and physically, this slows your brainwaves and is much more conducive to creative thought and intuition.
When you are thinking about developing deeper what ‘the character’ can do and feel ask yourself this question – “If that can happen, just imagine what can happen.”
One thing will always lead to another – if you allow it.
