I am getting my groove back [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!)!

Over the year I've gotten a lot of push-back from people who don't want to do the same prompts every week. I know it's annoying somethings but I promise - this is magically clarifying. The repetition helps you go deeper into the process.

Here are the prompts:

PART ONE: (sometimes these can stay the same for months at time, sometimes they change often)

My dream is:  

I want it because: 

When I have it I will feel:



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



My goal/wish/intention for this New Moon is:

Last week’s focus was:

What happened in the last week?

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

What do I need now?

What does my dream need now?

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

My Dream Status Report for this week:



My dream is: BEING the artist + writer I want to be and everything this entails. Having a less dramatic creative process (like less battling self doubt and more happily humming to myself while I write and draw). Doing more creative projects for fun - like having short bits of creative play mixed into my days more often. And how I feel in my life in perimenopuase and beyond.

I want it because: This is what feels most enticing and interesting to me. I'm also noticing how BEING who I feel I AM is important for my mental health. I feel so strongly - a better world is possible and our dreams show us the way there.

When I have it I will feel: Just a little more ME, more energized. More stable/sturdy. Excited about the new work I am doing.

My new moon intention: OK this is embarrassing, I don’t remember!! I don’t have the journal that I was using with me right now. This is good modelling that we don’t have to do this “perfectly” lol


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

My dream shows up as a lantern, and when I look close there is no flame inside, there is a butterfly of light.

I see the 27 year old (!!) butterfly tattoo on my wrist and think about how long butterflies have been around me.

I sit down, the light of the lantern isn’t just light, it’s also healing and magic.

My dream says “I am guiding you, it’s ok you don’t have to know where we are going” which feels like a relief.



Last week’s focus was: Explore structure - so excited we’re going to do this as a group in the forum next week. USE THE PLANNER.

What happened in the last week? 


NOT back to my post-pandemic ways of working and creating but really stepping into who and how I want to be now. I feel so good!

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

Structure is everything - not having MORE structure but having right-fit structure. Not structure to make me more productive or have my shit together (which, I think, is how I usually approached it in the past without even knowing I was doing that)

I feel SUPPORTED and NURTURED. I am doing the things I want to do and feeling like there is space for me to hold everything. Like, I don’t have less going on but I do feel less overwhelmed.

What do I need now? KEEP GOING this week was a big shift in things I’ve been working on for a long time, I am not grounded in this at all yet, so stay focused on this.

What does my dream need now?

The butterfly bats it wings. It wants to DELIGHT. It’s easier for it to DELIGHT when I feel DELIGHTED.

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

DELIGHT and STRUCTURE - how to I structure my life and work so that DELIGHT is the main vibe?
