Be relaxed and open about my dreams[Weekly Dream Status Report]

Note: This is a post about my daily practice with my Creative Dreams - I often link to the tools, courses and processes I use which are available to Dream Book members. If you're not a member, find out more + join us here.

On Fridays I do my Dream Status Report which is a series of prompts I use every week to help me have more clarity, momentum and groundedness on my path. You can do them with me (Dream Book members: come post yours in the forum!)!

🦄⚡️Creative Dream Incubator Weekly Coaching Call is today!!

Hope to see you there - or catch the replay over the weekend! (Call details are here, the reply will be on that page a few hours after we're done.) And after the call I"ll start a thread in the forum to share your plans for the week and as a space for accountability and support.

My Dream Status Report for this week:


My dream is: I want to get an RV or camper van and travel… WITH MY CAT BEAR!!!! Create a comfy cozy home on wheels, and write + make art on the road while we have adventures. AND... I have a new creative dream which I am still not ready to talk about. AND... there is a sense of stability I had when I was married that I don't feel now which I want to create for myself, in a new way - still lots to explore with that one.

I want it because: It feels so sweet and makes me happy. And the new dream, which is more about art I want to make, feels like it will expand and energize my whole life.

When I have it I will feel: I think I will feel so happy, free and thrilled with my life. And also more stable and grounded.


Invite the soul of your dream in (using the Dream Lab practice) to help you with the rest of the prompts.

My dream shows up as... I pick one part of my "big dream", the thing I am most working on right now, and it shows up as an inflatable mattress floating on water. I lay on it, feeling the sun on my body, and I feel soooooo relaxed.

So interesting! Because I DO NOT feel relaxed about how to go about this thing.


Last week’s focus was: Remember that my dream is alive, my dream believes in me.

What happened in the last week?

I had my 50th birthday party! It was so good! And the "recovery" was longer than I thought it would be. I mean - considering there was no alcohol at the party and it was over at 9:15, lol. But just the ENERGY of getting ready for the party, having my first birthday without my ex-partner (he took my birthday off work every year, and we would have a really sweet day), starting a new decade... it's a lot to process.

And, my dream felt FAR AWAY a lot of this week. I remembered the "Remember that my dream is alive, my dream believes in me." but felt "Yeah but WHERE IS IT THEN because it feels so far away"

Reminded myself that when we feel discouraged - this is a part of the work, too. This is natural. This is a part of most dreams. But none of that felt encouraging.

BUT my options are to: be with and work through this discouragement or give up. So...

Also, I went to the dentist for my check-up and my gums are getting better! They said over the last few years they've seen in improvement each time which felt really good. A few years ago they were worried I would need a surgery and now it seems I don't. So - sometimes working on having better habits does create better outcomes!

What am I learning/How do I feel about this?

I feel a bit discouraged. I feel like I am at the bottom of a steep hill and it's so hard to take each step.

For some reason I am not looking behind me and noticing how the hill ahead of me is so much smaller than the ones I've already climbed.

What do I need now?

Then I remember how my dream showed up as this inflatable mattress/raft. And how relaxed and open I felt laying on it. Maybe I need to do the things that help me feel relaxed and open?

What does my dream need now?

Sunshine! To be out in the sun.

Taking all of this into account, my focus for the next week is:

Thinking of that "relaxed and open" vibe, laying on an air mattress floating in water. After such a long, cold, rainy spring we are having nice weather and this makes a difference! I want to go on daily bike rides through parks - that has the same feeling for me.

So my focus is: Be relaxed and open about my dreams. (Since this is NOT how I am actually feeling about my dreams, I will do a daily meditation/journaling practice around this, and see what that brings)
