Help! I'm Stuck! Video Series: Day Four

Hello! I'm Andrea

I’m Andrea Schroeder, founder of The Creative Dream Incubator.

I teach journaling + meditation classes for creative people who are ready for a BREAKTHROUGH.

I LOVE your vision for what you want to create in your life, and I'm thrilled to help you make it happen.

“I’ve actually accomplished more and received more clarity in the 4 weeks with you than I have in the past 4 years going it alone!”

There are three things you really need to know about your dreams:

  1. Your dream is your SOUL calling you towards your TRUE SELF. This means your dream is not frivolous, and it's also not something outside of you to chase after. It's a sacred calling.
  2. To answer that calling, you are going to need to GROW towards your true self. This includes inner growth, outer growth, creative growth and any other kind of growth your dream wants to throw your way.
  3. The obstacles between you and your dream are not in the way. They ARE the way.

Your dream is your SACRED CALLING.

With the right support and nurturing, pursuing this dream will absolutely grow you into the version of you who can DO THE THING. You were chosen for this and you are absolutely ready for this.

With group coaching circles, online courses and ongoing support, we'll work together to make it happen.

Dream Book will help you solve the biggest problems you face with your dream:

Not knowing where to start, or how to get to the next level.

I will give you so many way to work with your dream! If anything you'll have too many options for what to do next... sometimes people have to email me to ask which one they should work with because they don't know what to choose. (And that's good! Helping you get the most out of your membership is my job, so I am happy to do this! There is a contact form right on the main page where you can email me anytime.)

But really - NOT KNOWING what to do is totally natural, because your dream is here to GROW you. So you can't really see the path from your current-self perspective. It's NATURAL, not a sign that you can't work with your dream yet.

Being all alone with your dreams.

Creative Dreaming is a long and often lonely path. Having people WHO REALLY GET IT to get support from is everything. Our live calls are absolute medicine for the soul - and that's even when you're working with the replay. Hearing other people's stories every month is medicine.

Because you live in a culture that doesn't support dreams, sometimes it's hard to even understand how healing and special it is to not be alone with your dreams. It's a form of magic that I think EVERYONE should have, which is why I shifted from one-on-one coaching and on-off classes, to this membership format - so that we can stay connected over time.

Feeling like you're not ready to face the obstacles.

As established, the obstacle is not IN the way, it IS the way. Which means we need to face it and work THOROUGH it.

This is terrifying sometimes! Our dreams are always pushing us to face the things we'd least like to face. This is ridiculously difficult to do on your own. Come do it with me, we are stronger together. And I'll give you some fantastic tools for navigating the obstacles.

And Dream Book will not CAUSE the main problem most things like this cause:

A lot of coaching and personal growth programs ask you to follow someone else's blueprint instead of listening to your own inner wisdom.

I mean, this is YOUR SACRED CALLING! It's imperative that you navigate the path with your own inner wisdom. But more importantly, programs that give you blueprints and tell you to follow them undermine your trust in your inner knowing. That's not what we do here.

The Dream Book membership is full of smart, creative, accomplished people. Dream Book exists to SUPPORT and NURTURE their genius.

One of the things I LOVE about our live classes is how people will come on and share how they CHANGED the meditation or journaling prompts or suggestions I was making to make them fit better for them. I encourage everyone to listen to their own selves, and do things in their own way.

We learn so much from each other when we all have space to be our unique selves, doing things in our unique way.

Every week I get emails from people telling me how much Dream Book is changing their whole lives.

Though - it's not ME doing that, it's the BIG magic and medicine that comes from having the support you need to follow your sacred calling, grow into who you really are and make your dreams happen.

Most dreams do start as these vague, uncertain things or impossible wishes - but with FOCUSED Dream Work and loads of support - they become clear and do-able.

Give it some time. Keep showing up. Ask me whatever questions you have as you do. And one little step at a time - you will make it happen.

Dream Book costs $33 USD a month.

Yes, it's a subscription. There is a cancel button right in your account, you don't have to send an awkward email, you are free to cancel your membership any time.

Give it a try - within the first month you'll be seeing yourself and your dreams in a whole new light.

Who is Dream Book for?

The Dream Book membership is full of artists, healers, coaches, therapists, writers, and people who are figuring out who they want to be. While there is some content specifically for that overlapping space between creative dreams and creative businesses, not everyone is working on "business dreams".

Dream Book works best for people who define themselves as creative in some way, and have some kind of spiritual life or connection to their inner world. People who enjoy taking time to reflect and explore the inner and outer aspects of their dreams.

Dream Book includes facing the hard stuff: both inside and outside of you. We recognize that we don't dream in a vacuum, we dream in the world. We talk about the difficulties of living and dreaming in a racist, sexist, capitalist world (and all the ways that dominant culture tells us who to be) as climate collapse is happening around us. So Dream Book works best for people who are not looking to spiritual bypass any of this, or pretend it doesn't exist.

I created Dream Book to make it easier to keep showing up for yourself, your dreams, and the life you want to create.

I always had BIG DREAMS and no clue how to make them happen. After getting a degree in fashion design, and specializing in textile art, I spent most of my 20s being a stereotypical starving artist. When these dreams tanked, I got an office job and started taking classes in personal and spiritual growth like my life depended on it. A few years later, I had taken so many classes I was suddenly a bonafide, accredited spiritual teacher.

I started bringing creativity, play and emotional sensitivity to spiritual workshops and healing circles... and the rest is history. I mean, the rest was a VERY SLOW PROCESS of making my biggest dream come true - building up The Creative Dream Incubator as a business that could sustain me financially, which is has been doing since Jan 1, 2011.

I launched the Dream Book program on Jan 1, 2020 - it is the culmination of everything I've learned about creative dreaming, and the best support system your dreams could ever ask for.

Dream Book is three things in one

You can focus on the parts that are most helpful for you you right now and leave the rest! Some people JUST do the classes in their own journal. Some people JUST do the live Zooms, or the replays. Some people dip in and out. Whatever works for you.

I am becomign who I was meant to be

✨THE MOST✨ in-depth course on navigating the inner + outer work of making your dream happen.

Dream Book gives you the tools to navigate your path with more CLARITY and CONFIDENCE.

The course is designed so that each thing you learn is immediately applied to your life and your dreams - step by step, you keep gaining more CLARITY and COURAGE for navigating your own path.

It's A LOT of material, broken down into small lessons. The content feels less like a class, and more like on-going mini healing sessions and life coaching for your dream.

An online creative mastermind where we do the work together

Doing this work in community is a miracle-generator. We grow so much stronger together. Just reading about someone else's experience can help you feel so much less alone.

The Daily Miracle Mastermind is a private forum where I share my daily steps and invite you to share your stories, ask questions or get support. (Recently I have started sharing my posts on my public blog too, but the forum still gives YOU space to participate)

Plus the Zoom calls! Monthly intention setting and coaching calls right before each new moon, a monthly Marketing As A Creative + Spiritual Practice call -  and the "extra calls" most months (keep reading for more).

If you can't attend live, there is space to leave me your questions so I can address them on the call, and we can discuss further in the private comments section - you don't need to be on the Zooms to get support with Dream Book, most people use the replays!

A library of alchemy tools for healing and transforming all the things that get in your way

Imagine feeling overwhelmed... and going into the alchemy library and grabbing the overwhelm process. It's a journaling sheet with a short video class where I lead you through the process of transforming your overwhelm into the thing you need most in this moment.

The alchemy library is full of tools to help you transform whatever is in your way - overwhelm, procrastination, fear, huge obstacles - we all GET stuck with our dreams, but having these practices mean you never have to STAY stuck with your dreams.

You won't just have ways to work THROUGH it. You'll have ways to turn your stucks into FUEL. This changes everything.

Upcoming live calls:

We do a New Moon Intention Setting + Coaching Circle AND a Marketing As A Creative + Spiritual Practice call every month.

And I'm doing a series of calls this spring to help with creative dreaming in hard times:

March 12: Taking The Inner Work Deeper (Done! Replay available)

April 9: Letting Your Dream Come To You Instead Of Chasing After It.

May 15: Creating Self Care Protocols to Support Yourself in Being The Version of You Who Can Do Your Dream.

June 13: Dealing with Distractions.

Some of our past calls:

Exploring your Post-Pandemic Self

Habits Upgrade

Feeling Worthy of your Dreams

Having a Stable Relationship With Money When The World Is Unstable

Structure, Habits, Routines

Slow the fuck down! BE as powerful, creative + magnetic as you ARE

Exploring Resistance and Creative Flow

(These are so good! Replays are available instantly when you join)

Here's what you'll need:

  • A computer or mobile device with an internet connection to access video lessons and meditations and download worksheets.
  • A journal: ANY kind of notebook, whatever you like to use. I do suggest something on the larger side, like printer paper sized, to give you enough space for the processes you'll be doing. But of your muse prefers a smaller notebook then by all means!
  • Some time every week: how much time is ENTIRELY up to you. 1-2 hours a week is ideal, but if you have less time you can still use the time you have to make progress with your dream. A lot of us find that when we spend more time doing the Dream Work, we actually end up more productive with the Outer Work. And in all honestly - even just giving your dream 1 hour or less a week moves you forward so much faster than "waiting to have enough time" ever will.
  • OPTIONAL: printer, scissors + glue for printing out the printables and glueing them into your journal. If you're not a printables person you can use my worksheets as guides and just do the work in your journal. There are also printable bundles with a whole month's worth of printables, which makes it easier to print everything at once, if you are using a print shop.

"This, THIS, is why Dream Book is such genius program: Simultaneously connecting me with the essence of my biggest dream and solving the most mundane next step towards it. Thank you."

“I’m one of those people who used to think that I didn’t have enough time or money to participate in something like this.

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! This HAS changed my life!”

Melody Flurry

"Dreambook is helping me to show up for my dream, to keep connecting with my dream and to take actions that are in line with my dream.

Another thing I personally really need to be able to live my dream, and that Dreambook provides, is structure. For me Dreambook is about creating my own structure to do the necessary inner work, outer work and dream work to be able to walk my path.

By sending me reminders Andrea helps me to do this work, even (or especially) when I am stuck and procrastinating.

By working with Dreambook my dream is actually coming true, step by step."”

“I listened to you when you said that this 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 do believe that your dream is your sacred calling and I would love to help you answer it.

Inside Dream Book you get live calls with me but if the times don’t work (they are usually at 1:pm Central, North America as this seems to reach most of the world - we have regular attendees from North America, Europe and New Zealand) you can email me any time!

I am not one of these “four hour workweek internet business people”. I LOVE this work and want to help you succeed.

I want you to know - you already have everything inside you that you need to succeed.

Your dream DOES come with instructions because it is your sacred calling. It’s just that your dream needs you to grow and heal alongside the outer work in order to hear instructions for your next steps and this all gets confusing!

So doing the work in community is so helpful. Hearing other people share their experiences each month is healing! 

If you don’t have a lot of support for your dreams in your “real life” know that this is really common! The people closest to us can be really invested in our NOT changing and NOT growing, and the people who love us the most can have the hardest time supporting our dreams.

I am honoured that I get to do this sacred work of supporting people with their dreams.

I feel strongly that this is a part of the work that helps us heal and change the world. I dream of a world where everyone is free to pursue their dreams.

You will find lots of activists inside the Dream Book membership. We believe in climate change. We are anti-racist. We are opposed to all hate - including transphobia and homophobia. I am concerned about how many life coaches and spiritual teachers are preaching alt-right conspiracy theories instead of examining their own unconscious privilege and trying to make the world better for everyone by addressing the impacts of the systems of oppression that we live in.

I would love to work with you inside Dream Book. If you have any questions at all - just email me right here. I’m happy to help you figure out if Dream Book is a good fit for you.
