It’s been a few months since I started working through the Creative Dream Incubator with my new dreams.
I stayed in Module 1 (Planting the Seed of your Dream in the Soul of the Universe) for a long time because I was having a hard time finding clarity about what my new dreams even are.
After looking for this dream for about a month with no success, I did a coaching session with myself to sort out what was happening.
What was happening is that I had these two “warring” inner critics: one was throwing shame at me for my dream being too small and pathetic (like somehow I should already have it) and the other was locking my dream up in some faraway dungeon so I would forget about it because getting it would be IMPOSSIBLE.
When my brain couldn’t reconcile “You should already have this” with “This is impossible, you’ll never have this“, plus it wanted to protect me from both messages so it made the dream fuzzy to see – so that I couldn’t hear the inner critic messages.
So I decided to be even sneakier.
I gave up on finding clarity about what my new dream is.
Instead I focused in on the qualities that I want to invite into my life right now.
And I carried on with the Creative Dream Incubator. I journaled about the qualities and how it will feel to be living these qualities more fully and stuck random photos in there that felt like how it will feel.
I mean, of course as I work on this I am getting a better sense of what my new dreams are but mostly I am just focusing on the qualities and feelings.
And then, weeks later, I was in my new Dream Loft, sorting through my things and I flipped through my Creative Dream Incubator journal and found this page.
That woman looks exactly like I felt in that moment.
I even had bright sun shining from behind me like that, thanks to the wall-to-wall-floor-to-ceiling south window in my new art space. And those colours were all around me in my new space.
So, even though I’m still not 100% clear on the Bigger Picture of what my new dreams are and where I am going with them, I am 100% clear that I am on the right path because I am aligning myself with it from the inside out – feeling my way towards it.
And as I do, the dream is coming into focus.
One thing I have learned is that parts of this new dream are related to changes to my work and how I do it.
So: Changes are coming to my blog and website and business.
I am really, really very happy about these changes and I hope you will be too!
They feel less like change and more like evolution and shifting into what’s next. They also feel like a celebration and honouring of everything I have done with this business (including the many years of struggle before this business was officially started).
It feels good and solid and true.
I’m giving myself lots of time to attune to the new ideas before acting on them, and to process every little shift, from the inside out. So I don’t have a timeline or schedule for this.
I can’t say anything more than that, right now, about what the changes will be.
I can say that I am really glad that you are a part of this. And that I’ll post more information as soon as it is ready for posting.
And I can say that it is So Fun to follow a dream without really knowing where it will lead. The Ultimate Adventure.
