Making space to be with the not-knowing [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 it's annoying sometimes but I promise - 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: I am re-doing all of this and still in the process of figuring it out. It feels SO VULNERABLE and WEIRD to not have any answers right now, but if we always know where we're going, we can't get anywhere new.

I want it because:

When I have it I will feel: 

My new moon intention:


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

I CAN still invite the soul of my dream in, even though I don't know the specifics of what the dream is right now - it feels like the wisest most expansive part of me that is always guiding me to what is true for me.

It shows up as a fairy godmother. With a puffy skirt, sparkly wand and tiara.

She gives me a big hug and reminds me that she’s always on my side. She puts her hand on my heart to offer healing (I am not having the best morning)

She sets out a picnic in a park. She’s like “hey there’s no rush, let’s have fun and enjoy the process”



Last week’s focus was: DELIGHT and STRUCTURE - how to I structure my life and work so that DELIGHT is the main vibe?

What happened in the last week? 

I did start to implement the things I learned about what kind of structure, routines and habits I need now. This does feel delightful!

But also - so many things happened that I don't understand yet.

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

After so many years (at least 8) of doing these prompts every week, I just realized that I almost always have ANSWERS to these prompts. But this week I don't have a lot of answers.

I feel very much in process.

And, maybe this is what's new - I am not trying to direct the process. Like, there is being 100% in the flow and "whatever happens, happens", and then there is being 100% the creative director of your life and being VERY intentional, and I think my set-point between the two is changing.

I want to be less intentional about the outcomes and the "hows"

And more intentional about enjoying the process.

It seems so small to write it like that, but it feels like a big inner shift that's mid-shift and I can't understand it yet.

What do I need now? I have no idea!

But the new table I ordered arrived today, and it took me most of the afternoon to put it together (with breaks).

So now my room has this new table, plus the old table, plus packing materials everywhere. Sometimes a dream lands in our life and makes a huge mess!

(My plan was to keep the old table up here, but move the book shelf (about the size of a large table) downstairs, but now that it's here I might keep all there? I don't know. I just know I'm not doing anything else with it today)


What does my dream need now?

For me to stay in this place, of not knowing and not trying-to-know-right-away.


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

Stay in the process.
