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 get a lot of plush-back from people who don't want to do the same prompts every week. I know it's annoying somethings but I promise - this is magically clarifying.
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. This is the "big picture" dream - this includes lots of big + small inner + outer things that I am detailing and exploring in my Dream Book. And how I feel in my life in perimenopuase and beyond.
I want it because: This is what feels most enticing and interesting to me. I'm also noticing how BEING who I feel I AM is important for my mental health. I feel so strongly - a better world is possible and our dreams show us the way there.
When I have it I will feel: Just a little more ME, more energized. More stable/sturdy. Excited about the new work I am doing.
My new moon intention: Focus on the book project - all the practices and routines that support my mental health which supports my creative process. (Dream Book members we have a New Moon intention setting call today! Hope to see you there!)
PART TWO: Invite your dream in (using the Dream Lab practice) to help you with the rest of the prompts.
My dream shows up as a GIANT, made of light, standing tall with arms raised at her sides. I feel a little tired in comparison to her, lol.
I sit at her feet and notice that her arms aren't just held up, she is holding open space. Like, tearing the space-time continue and holding open a portal for me. This feels so reassuring and hopeful.
Last week’s focus was: Set up my new dream altar and get this new "free weekly Co-Dreaming calls" thing organized.
What happened in the last week? I did not get my dream altar set up but I did get ready for the new free Co-Dreaming calls! I feel completely ready to do the free calls, but all of the back-end organizing stuff felt daunting because I haven't done anything like it in a while. It's just a lot of details to sort out. And I sorted them out!
I had a fantastic week of SHOWING UP for myself, giving myself lots of time for meditation, journaling and writing every morning. This really helped me sort out the tricky parts and take the steps I wanted to take.
What am I learning/How do I feel about this? Being present, really present with myself and my dreams and wishes and my gifts and creativity and power and also with whatever I am feeling in the moment - this is the magic. I know this, but I keep learning it more.
What do I need now? The answer that comes to me is REST even though I feel like... haven't I rested enough? lol Remembering the magic of the Slow The Fuck Down BE as powerful, creative and magnetic as you ARE calls I think I will just... rest.
What does my dream need now? My dream is holding that portal open for me. It feels patient and loving and like it doesn't need anything from me, I can work out how I move towards it and through the portal in my own time.
