Creative Emergence Day 23: Building Your Solid Foundation

Today I picked a card for us (from my Journaling Cards for Magic + Insight)

At first, it can feel like your dream is a castle in the sky.

But of course you want a dream you can live in.? One that is study and grounded and safe and easily accessible.

Support is a funny thing.

You can have a lot of support, but not feel supported, and so you don’t notice all the support you already have.

You can be supported in ways that work for you and in ways that don’t work for you.

If you’re reading this page – you are supported already.? You have supports in your life that allow you to go online and gather information and resources.? So you probably also have supports in your life that provide you with running water, electricity, a roof over your head and food in your belly.

Noticing and being grateful for all of the ways that you are already supported helps strengthen your inner relationship with the quality of support which, of course, helps you figure out how to have more/better support for growing your dream.

You don’t always need the kind of support you think you need.

Sometimes your inner critics are the ones saying that you need so-and-so to support your dream before you can go after it, and that’s far from true.

When I made the decision to leave my office job to be a full time dreamer – my family wished I wouldn’t because they wanted me to be safe.? Some of my co-workers actually laughed at me.? A lot of people were sure I would fail.

I did not feel supported in the ways I wanted to be supported by others.

I didn’t let that stop me.? And I’ve been successfully self-employed as a creative dreamer for 5 years now.

On the other hand, feeling supported is a magical feeling.? It bolsters your self-confidence.

So, today I want you to give yourself lots of time and space to brainstorm in your journal about what supports you.

Using the technique I teach in my free class or anything you have learned in my classes inside the Creative Dream Circle, invite the heart and soul of your intention to help you explore support.

Where are you supported?? Where are you not supported and does that really matter?? Where can you create supports for your dreams?

Once you’re done – let us know how it went.

Share your daily journaling pics + thoughts on Instagram using the #creativeemergence hashtag, or post them here on Facebook.

I’ll be sharing my pics and thoughts on my Instagram.

And/or leave a comment below. (Yes, you will need a Facebook account in order to comment. Apologies to those of you who don’t have Facebook.)


Because I loooove my Circle members, I’ll be posting links to resources inside the Circle in most of these posts so they can dive into the lessons a little deeper. If you’re not a Circle member you can just ignore this part – or join us!


  • I wrote this post about how each of the tools/classes in the Circle support your journaling practice
  • The Magic Journal Class wanted to go here… I guess it wants to remind you that the more magic you feel, you more support you can (magically!) create for yourself.
  • Module 1 of the Creative Dream Incubator e-course has a lesson, meditation and journaling problems to help you build more supportive belief system for yourself.
  • And we’ve got a private forum inside the Circle for sharing your Creative Emergence photos and stories if you’d rather not do that publicly.

You’ll need to be logged into your Creative Dream Circle account for these links to work.



See you back here tomorrow for day 24 of Creative Emergence.
