We tend to think that we're supposed to already know what we want, and if we don't know that means something is wrong.
Nope. That's wrong.
You live in a world that is constantly telling you who you're supposed to be and what you're supposed to want.
Plus multi-national corporations spend BILLIONS figuring out how to make you think you want something that you don't actually want. This impacts you. It gets harder to listen to your inner wisdom when the outer voices are so well-tuned to hit the right notes in your unconscious.
And you may have people in your life who care about you who are telling you what they think you should want. We're all deeply programmed to move towards belonging and community so it's actually really hard to disappoint the people we love.
OF COURSE you get tangled up when it comes to knowing what we want for yourself. This is VERY complicated.
This is deep work. Naming and claiming your dream is a big deal. So it's ok if this takes a while. This is important and worthwhile work.
And - it is work. If you sit around waiting for your dream to come to you you're not going to find it.
So let's go find your dream.
At their core, all dreams are about living your life in such a way that you feel like you're being your true self.
You want to feel happy and free. You want your life to be meaningful and fulfilling. Joyful. Safe. Full of love and creativity. This is what all dreams are calling us towards.
It's OK to not know the details of what that's going to look like just yet.
Discovering those details is a part of the journey. So you need to begin this journey from where you are now, before you have all of those details.
I post every day in the Creative Dream Circle (Monday-Friday) to share the details of what I'm up to with my Dream Work.
I encourage you to get in the habit of reading these posts!
Then you'll see that I don't always know what to do, I'm not always sure what my dream is, I'm scared some days, I procrastinate some days...
but I keep moving myself towards my dream anyway. Baby steps.
Through the daily posts you'll start to invite that energy into your life and that will open up new possibilities for how you can start working with your dream even before you see all the details for what it's going to look like.
Once you're inside the Circle, you'll start with these two classes:
- Dream Finder Coaching Call (60 min video)
- Dream Finding Masterclass (60 min video)
These classes won't necessarily tell you what your dream is.
But they will give you a good foundation for starting with - a new way of looking at and working with your dream - even if you don't know what it looks like, on the outside.
Then you can take that an apply it to ALL of the other classes in the Circle (the full list is further down on this page).
Your dream is about so much more than the outer part anyway.
The tools and classes in the Creative Dream Circle focus on the Inner Work and Dream Work - all things you can do without focusing on the external details.
As you make the commitment to show up for your dream and work on connecting with the inner qualities of your dream the external details will start to come into focus - I just don't know how quickly it will happen because everyone's process is unique.
But what if you can't relax into that? What if you keep worrying about not knowing the details of how you want it all to be?
Then you work with the Un-Sticking Station, one of the more comprehensive classes inside the Creative Dream Circle.
This is where you learn practices for deep healing and transformation, to help re-wire those patterns of fear, doubt and worry with trust, wisdom and clarity.
In the Un-Sticking Station I will guide you through every part of it so you don't already have to know how to transform fear - that's a thing you'll learn in the Circle.
This is the real work of making dreams real, the alchemy of transforming the things that hold you back into fuel for your dream.
I promise: your dream will take you on an amazing adventure.
The reason why I stopped offering individual classes and put everything into the Creative Dream Circle like this is because once you start working with your dream, your dream will take you in new and surprising directions.
So the class you sign up for won't necessarily be the class you need.
Once you work through whatever it is that has you stuck about finding your dream, who knows what you're going to want to explore? So you'll have the whole rest of the Circle to play with.
The #1 complaint I used to get about the Circle is that there was just TOO MUCH stuff so people couldn't always find what they needed.
Especially if you're having an Inner Critic Attack or you're super stuck with something - you don't want to wade through stuff.
You want to find the thing that's going to help PRONTO.
So I created a map! This is what it looks like:
Each of these buttons has it's own section in the Circle.
On those pages I give you some insights + ideas about that particular situation, tips for how to approach it and then a list of all the different classes and tools in the Circle and how to use them specifically to help your situation.
It's like having a Creative Dream Coach On Demand, 24/7.
That last button, that says "My Question Is Not Listed Here" leads to the "Ask Andrea" section of the forum so you can ask me directly. If you're in a situation that other dreamers are likely to face - I'll make a new map section for you. If you're in a more unique situation, I'll just respond to you in directly in the forum. Either way I've got your back.
I spent a lot of years filling the Creative Dream Circle with classes and resources. Now I focus on helping the members in the Circle make the best use of those resources.The Creative Dream Circle is MY dream come true, I am very grateful for it and I work hard to keep supporting the Circle in being all it can be.
The Big Mother List of classes and resources that are included in the Creative Dream Circle:
This is an overwhelming list!
You definitely don't need to do all the classes to get your money's worth or to get what you need to move forward with your dream. Again - the map will help you narrow in on what will be most helpful to you.
In my free class, Your Dream Is Waiting For You To Come True, I explain how Creative Dream Alchemy works and at the end I talk about how I am building a library of Creative Dream Alchemy practices.
These are deeply transformative energy alchemy processes for making the magic happen - like exactly what you need, exactly when you need it.
The Library of Creative Dream Alchemy teaches you how to harness the full potential of your creative power - your power to create what you want in your world. I am not talking about making vision boards or positive thinking exercises, this is the deep work of inner transformation and growing into your True Self.
When you are plugged into the magic of your True Self, it gets easier to dream.
This is partly because it means you're plugged into your inner power source and partly because it aligns you with your actual purpose and authenticity.
So I am not promising you'll make 6 figures, loose 50 pounds or get 100,000 twitter followers. I'm promising you'll move towards a life that is actually true and authentic for you.
The Library of Creative Dream Alchemy gives you the tools for that journey.
You know how I talk about the inner work being a miracle generator? This is where we do that work - the library is like the workshop for actually DOING Creative Dream Alchemy.
I use these tools every day and I can't wait to share them with you.
And that special magic that comes from being a part of a group of creative kindred spirit dreamers.
I write every day (Monday-Friday) on our private site to share the behind-the-scenes stories of how I'm working with my dreams. I talk about which tools I'm using, how I'm using the and what I'm learning.
These are usually pretty short posts - some days everything kind of sucks, some days are pure magic. But when you read these little bits from my own Dream Story, day after day, they actually invite you deeper into your own unfolding process of working with your dream.
And, every day Circle members gather in the comments section of these posts to share what they're doing with their dreams. It's so amazing to be able to share our journeys in this way. We learn so much from each other, we inspire each other, we support each other.
All of this happens on our private website - I know no one wants to share this vulnerable stuff on Facebook. It's such a gift to be able to share our stories and get daily support from people who "get it".
We truly are stronger together.
Here's The Fine Print: You need to read through the Creative Dream Circle Policies + Guidelines before you join.
Your registration in the Circle signifies your agreement with the Policies + Guidelines, which are absolutely non-negotiable.
** Every member honouring the guidelines is how we create the lovely supportive atmosphere in the Circle **
Membership in the Creative Dream Circle is $363 (US) per year.
There are two ways to join:
- You can join for one year for $363 and make no additional payments. Your membership ends 1 year from your start date.
- You can sign up for a recurring subscription. This means you would be making the payment every year, until you choose to cancel your membership. You get 2 reminder emails before your payment goes through, and there's a video where I show you exactly how to cancel your payment.
When you sign up for the subscription, you are "locked in" at the current price. So even when the price goes up (the Circle has been running since 2012, yes of course the price increases periodically) you'll keep your payments the same. If you sign up for one year only, you are always welcome back, but it would be at the most current fee.
Not ready to commit for a whole year?
There is a way to join for just a month! With Project Miracle.
Project Miracle is a 30 day creative ceremony and support system for going deep into the creative process of miracle-making. It comes with 35 days access to the Creative Dream Circle. It costs $99 US, and at the end of the 35 days if you want to stay - you can take that $99 and apply it towards an annual membership in the Circle.
"I’m one of those people who used to think that I didn’t have enough time or money to participate in the Creative Dream Circle.
I realize now that thinking I didn’t have enough time or money was just an excuse. It was kind of tied into not believing in my own self worth, like I shouldn’t spend the money or take time away from my kids to do this because it was silly and it wasn’t going to cause a change in my life so what’s the point.
That was just my inner critic talking, I realize now, and boy was my inner critic wrong!
These resources and the daily practice of connecting with my creativity has changed my life!
It has impacted my relationships and my outlook in such a positive profound way in such a short period of time that there is no way I would ever stop playing in the Creative Dream Circle."
"This group is amazing and I am so grateful. It has changed my world.
I no longer feel isolated. It supports me in a way that challenges me to my greatness, and in a way that nothing else in my (extensive and great) network of friends and colleagues could. Just like you said in our first video (I re-listened to it from my iPhone when I was doing my cardio at the gym yesterday).
The videos are awesome! Inspiring and practical. You challenge me to deepen my spiritual trust and growth, and you provide practical tools and ideas to implement that help me ground my business in a creative and spiritual foundation.
You respond specifically to the needs of the group.
I listen to each video multiple times, and I get something really valuable and new from each time I listen. Thank YOU!!!!!
Andrea, you are an Alchemy Facilitator of Dreams."
"I listened to you when you said that joining the circle would change things, would shift energy and would change me. But I don’t think I believed you.
I believe you now. Your classes have changed things, shifted energy and changed me: profoundly."
"I’ve actually accomplished and received more clarity in the 4 weeks I’ve been in the Creative Dream Circle than I have in the past 4 years going it alone."
