Let’s more MORE meditation + journaling [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!)!

I know doing the same prompts every week can be annoying sometimes but this is magically clarifying. The repetition helps you go deeper into the process and makes it easier to LEARN from your process as you go, and the apply those learnings right away.

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. For a while now a lot has been shifting around how much/what kind of art I want to make and working on creating more nourishing/robust/lively local creative community. And right now I am in this liminal space after separating from my husband, so my dreams for this fall and winter are to really BE IN this space, and call in: quiet, calm, healing, space for all the feelings, serious self care, and lots of art projects.

I want it because: Divorce is a new beginning. Of course there are a lot of uncomfortable feelings being stirred up but there are also all these new possibilities and I want to explore them, I want to explore who I can be next.

When I have it I will feel: Right now, because everything feels unsettled and uncertain, I'd love to feel a sense of stability.

My new moon intention: Treat this transition time I'm in as sacred.


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

I'm trying to call in my dream and it's this same dynamic I keep exploring: am I dreaming of healing and self care or am I dreaming of the things I want to be doing? It's like a little see saw going back and forth and then this hand comes in, stops the see saw from moving and says "You can have both. There's plenty of time in a day for both!!"

Especially as putting healing and self care first does connect us more to our authenticity and creativity - the creating of things will come naturally.


Last week’s focus was: Tapping into the healing powers of glowing radiance. I look forward to experimenting with this.

What happened in the last week? 

No, I did not really experiment with it. What happened is we had Thanksgiving in Canada and I didn't realize how that would hit me - the first holiday without my husband and step-kids and it felt like it put my grief process back, but I know healing is not linear and everything is on time. It was a hard week.


I launched the Creative Dream Playbook!

I mean, not a "real launch" I just put it out there and started talking about it and I'll keep sharing. I am really happy with this journal and it does feel good to put it out there!

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

Mostly I feel acceptance about how this will take the time it takes. Sometimes I feel frustrated that things feel so heavy. And as always lately, my heart is breaking about the state of the world.

I am learning so much. SO MUCH! So many relationships patterns I have that I wasn't seeing - I see now.

What do I need now?

Last week I wrote: Focus on self care. Work on creating the lists/structure/organization that make it easier to also do the things I want to do.

This is still the same.


What does my dream need now?

My dream wants me to be EASIER with everything. Stop seeing that "self care and healing" can't co-exist with "creativity and doing and making things happen".

Again, I mean my dream has given me this advice about a million times before: DO MORE MEDITATION AND JOURNALING. BE DEEPER IN YOUR PRACTICE.


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

I don't want to leave that "tap into the healing powers of glowing radiance" behind. I want that to be the "theme" or guiding light of being more committed to my practice, and going deeper into it.

The words feel clunky but I feel how it feels and will follow that feeling.
