REST and TRUST [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 - like I know it exists, I just can’t see it yet.

My dream shows up as Sinead O’Connor, reaching down from the heavens. (I have been listening to her music nonstop) Her hand touches my shoulder and I feel creative courage. And the KNOWING that, when you are forging your own path, OF COURSE sometimes you don’t know what’s next. You can’t! It’s not laid out for you. These times are vital.



Last week’s focus was: Stay in the process.

What happened in the last week? 

It feels a bit like a whirlwind. My husband is off work for a month which changes my routines. And my new table is all set up, I re-arranged my whole workspace for it, and I am still getting used to that. Still figuring out what to have on my desk, and what to have in the drawers beside it because I’m used to having drawers as the legs of the desk.

I got stuck yesterday as I shared, but then working with that stuck scared part of me seems to have freed something. Had a very creative day after that and now I’m feeling grounded and confident.

Like I am not sure what I want my next steps to look like but I am sure I am ready for them.


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

Like - getting my new desk set up, figuring out how I want things to be, having the end be in sight of this journal project and looking at what’s next - I am learning how to set myself up for my next steps in being the artist + writer I want to be.

’’Whatever it may bring

I will live by my own policies

I will sleep with a clear conscience

I will sleep in peace”

Sinead O’Connor from the Emperor’s New Clothes

I think I listened to this enough as a teenager that it seeped into my pores but right now I am finding the next layer in it. I don’t have words for it yet but it feels delicious.


What do I need now?

The Monday Co-Dreaming Call and my Dream work this week keeps saying: REST. I am going to trust that.


What does my dream need now?



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

REST and TRUST. Oh wow, putting them together as a goal like that feels SO GOOD.
