It’s ok to feel how you feel. Keep showing up.[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!)!

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 bout.

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.


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 a field of flowers in outer space with stars and nebulas (?) It feels like allowing the ALIVENESS and magic and mystery of life.

I had a really stressful week with a loved one having surgery, which triggered a lot of stress from when my step-son was in the hospital for so long, and kept having life-threatening complications. I'm so grateful the surgery yesterday didn't have complications and my loved one is at home recovering. But still, it brought up A LOT of stress and my body still needs more time to process and release.

Remembering this ALIVENESS and magic and mystery feels good.


Last week’s focus was: Take my next steps and keep taking them. Listen to myself about what I need from moment to moment.

What happened in the last week? As I said, a very stressful week. I did focus on listening to myself about what I need from moment to moment. My anxiety was REALLY high and I did a good job of taking care of myself. I did not take as many steps with my projects as I'd hoped.

But I did finish the new page for the Creative Dream Incubator Coaching Membership! I set up the Friday coaching calls, which start next week. I took good steps!

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

I feel tired. Still anxious. Still feeling frustrated that I can't always feel exactly how I want to feel!

AND accepting my feelings, taking care of them, taking care of me.

AND I have so many things to look forward to. This weekend my Craftivism group is doing our first Craft Bombing! I made some fabric banners, people are making whatever they want, then we are getting to together to put them up in the same place. My friend is having a "high tea" birthday and I am making lavender cupcakes for it.

There is so much good in my life, so many new things opening up. Sometimes it feels like I shouldn't have sadness or anxiety or any uncomfortable feelings because things are going so well and I have so much to be grateful for, but that's not how life works.

What do I need now?

Focus on self care.

What does my dream need now?

The flowers and stars and nebulas all want to give me a hug. They want healing for me.

Healing is a function of dreaming and dreaming is a function of healing.

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

Remember it's all a part of it! Self care and creativity-nourishing routines and Dream Work and Inner Work and Outer work. Keep showing up, trust the process.
