It’s like your fears, doubts, limiting beliefs and inner critics get together and, unbeknownst to you, tie your two shoelaces to each other.
So every time you try to take a step towards your dreams you just fall flat on your face.
And that only makes it harder to take another step! It's a viscous cycle.
And if you're here then you already know what the answer is: You've got to get better at dealing with your inner stuff - so those gremlins don't have the opportunity to tie your shoelaces together.
Dealing with your inner stuff is the key to freedom.
It's amazing. Inner work is just crammed full of miracles.
And it's HARD. I’m sure you already understand that.
So I do everything I can to make it as do-able as possible, because the more you work at this stuff, the more free you become, and the easier it is to move towards your dreams.
My favourite thing about the Creative Dream Circle is the Un-Sticking Station. I use it almost every day and I think it's going to become your new BFF.
It's a fairly simple practice that leads you through the process of meeting your "stuck". I use the word stuck to describe anything and everything that's getting in my way. It can be:
- external obstacles
- not having enough time
- not knowing what to do
- not seeing a way forward
Really, literally, anything that's in your way.
I know it sounds weird that one practice helps with all of these things, but The Un-Sticking Station is the practice of healing and transforming the things that hold you back.
It's the practice of doing deep and transformative inner work.
It doesn't matter what you bring into the Un-Sticking Station, it's going to heal and transform it.
Sometimes on the spot. Sometimes it will take longer.
Because I engage with the Un-Sticking Station all the time, I can un-stick my stucks fairly quickly now.
But it's a practice, which means you've got to keep practicing.
In over a decade of doing this work I've yet to find a stuck that couldn't get un-stick with the Un-Sticking Station.
But, and this is a Big But, that doesn't meant that your healing and transformation are going to look the way you think they will.
Sometimes we can spend a lot of time resisting our own healing before we fully receive the gifts of it.
And that's ok!
It takes the time it takes and as long as you stay engaged in the process you ARE going to get there.
If you could use the Un-Sticking Station even just once a week for the next year- things will change dramatically for you.
See, there's the thing you're actually afraid of, and then there's the fear of being afraid, the fear of feeling your fear. There are so many layers to this work, like sometimes it feels like there are infinite layers.
When you do this work regularly over time you start to stop resisting your own healing as you start to move through those layers.
You start to find more gifts in the work the deeper you go into it, and those gifts fuel you to keep going deeper.
So I'll send you continual invitations to dive in and do the work with me.
I post my own stories, lessons and discoveries in the Creative Dream Circle every day (Monday-Friday). I share where I'm stuck and un-stuck and everything in between and I invite you to play along with me.
This kind of community and support can be vital to keep doing this work. Because some days it will be brutal. You'll need support and love and reminders that it's ok if it's hard somedays. You'll need people helping you to not give up.
So, if you want to get better at working on your inner stuff, I think the Un-Sticking Station alone is worth the cost of the Creative Dream Circle.
But you're going to get everything else too.
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."
