On Fridays I post 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.
My Dream Status Report:
PART ONE: (sometimes these can stay the same for months at time, sometimes they change often)
My dream is: BEING the artist + writer I want to be. This is the "big picture" dream - this includes lots of different inner + outer things, which I am working on clarifying in my new Dream Book.
I want it because: It feels like TIME
When I have it I will feel: More in the flow, more creative and like... feeling fully expressed. Right now it's like I have sooo much TO express, I would like to feel more fully EXPRESSED.
My new moon intention: VERY SPECIFIC business goal (which feels like a goal, not a dream, but a goal that can support future dreams)
PART TWO: Invite your dream in (using the Dream Lab practice) to help you with the rest of the prompts.
The Field of Creative Dream Alchemy is an ice castle all lit up with coloured lights.
My dream is a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart.
I call in the soul of my business to join us. It shows up as the Northern Lights above us.
It feels like - everything is fuzzy right now, that's ok. I feel distant from this work, and that's ok. I know all of the magic is waiting for me as soon as I choose to come back to it.
Last week’s focus was: Be/stay well rested and restore (stay away from overwhelm)
What happened in the last week? I did stay away from overwhelm! I got very close, and remembered by focus, and did what I had to, to calm down. But at the same time, I did DO too much. Yesterday I did almost nothing and still feel like I need to do more nothing, to let my system process everything from the holidays.
One great thing happened: on boxing day I remembered I had wanted to buy Christmas lights to hang over the new bedroom. It's in the high ceiling part of the loft, and I had some lights hanging over the bed, but I needed a much longer string and when I look online all the options have different blinking patterns and I want just steady ON and good enough quality to use this for a good long time. So on Boxing Day I went to the hardware store and their lights were already 75% off and there was only 1 big wheel, 75' string of white lights which felt excessive but I took it. Then at the cash register it was like 75% off of the 75% off. They charged me $5. And I put up the lights and it's MAGICAL and this is making me really happy.
What am I learning/How do I feel about this? I just feel tired. I enjoyed the holidays AND it was too many events in too short a time.
What do I need now? More rest. I really want to get to work on my creative projects but my brain is like.... no. Not yet.
What does my dream need now? Oh! The warm fuzzy feeling in my heart wants a pillow and blanket.
Taking all of this into account, my focus for the next week is: Rest! Rest is nourishing. Rest IS the next steps, it's not the thing that helps me get to the next steps. Honour rest.
