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: This feels so enticing and important. Like I've outgrown who I was and it's time to be who I am now.
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 for this month: VERY SPECIFIC business goal for the end of the year
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 feels very distinctly like it is INSIDE ME. I invite in my dream and realize - of course my dream lives inside me.
I know I have said "your dream is inside you, not outside" many times but I am feeling it differently today.
My dream shows up as sunrise. Beautiful, colourful, full of light, and INEVITABLE - but also impossible to rush. I see the beginnings of it off on the horizon.
I call in the soul of my business to join us. It shows up as a light above me, kind of light a spotlight, not like a sun that lights up everything. Oh wow! It's shining it's light very specifically on my hands, which are holding the project I started working on this week.
It feels like - this project helps you move towards the dream.
Last week’s focus was: Still - do the next thing that feels like magic. Have a clear list of what I want to get done and keep checking in with my body + feelings about what I need next.
What happened in the last week? I did not get that clear list of things written out. I do have a longer list, but didn't narrow in what I want to do this week. I do think I still have "Covid brain". I will look at that list again today to see - what absolutely needs to get done before Christmas? While I'll have a lot of down time next week, I do want to work for a few hours each morning, so I can also make a list of what needs to get done before the end of the year.
Mostly this week, I had a very intense time in my practice, I feel like I broke through a big old stuck and I found clarity about this new business project, which is also a huge and satisfying creative project. I feel like, after all this time wanting this new dream and knowing I want to do things differently than I have been, but not knowing what, exactly, "different" means - now I have some direction. A project to begin with. So it feels like I am starting out at the beginning AND it feels like it took a LOT of work to figure out where the beginning even is.
What am I learning/How do I feel about this? I feel really excited to have found a path/project that I want to explore.
What do I need now? I have been getting overwhelmed from all of the "holiday stuff" - even when I say no to so many things, there are still so many things! I need rest. I am excited about this project AND I want to go slowly with it, for now at least.
What does my dream need now? Oh! Now the spotlight is shining on a blanket and pillow. Being well rested can help nurture this project. Also it feels like - now that I have a clear project/path/direction to get started with, it's good to go SLOW and give all of my ideas time to incubate.
Taking all of this into account, my focus for the next week is: Be/stay well rested and restore (stay away from overwhelm)
