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!)!
My Dream Status Report for this week:
My dream is: This one doesn't want to be shared, but I do have a very specific thing I am working on now.
I want it because: I am excited about it! And it feels supportive of all the other things I want - like having this puts me in a position for all sorts of new dreams.
When I have it I will feel: Free - and I feel free now but it feels like I would feel more free somehow. And grounded.
Invite the soul of your dream in (using the Dream Lab practice) to help you with the rest of the prompts.
My dream shows up as a tiny pink giraffe. Super cute, but I have no clue what this means? Then I remember - it doens' have to mean anything, just go with it.
The giraffe feels adorable, enchanting and sweet. It stands on my shoulder to help me with the rest of the prompts.
Last week’s focus was: Enjoy the process
What happened in the last week?
Like last week - so much fresh air and exercise! Feeling energized and enthusiastic more often! Remembering how important exercise is for my wellbeing and creativity.
I am almost finished the New Moon Intention Setting Ritual Kit and I am so happy with it. I've been experimenting with how to make a meditation journal and I really love how it came together for this one.
I had a lot of ups and downs in my mood and energy and it felt SO GOOD to be supported by my organizing systems - like it's easy to pick an easier thing to do when I don't feel as clear, and keep making progress anyway.
What am I learning/How do I feel about this?
This is the kind of momentum I've been missing for a while and it feels so good to have it. YAY for me to sticking with it through the excruciating parts of getting my work more organized.
What do I need now?
Nothing is coming to mind. I'm feeling really good about my self care routines.
What does my dream need now?
I look at the giraffe and it looks at me. What comes to mind is: I have a plan I really like, I should stick with it.
Oh! I think I get it.
I have a tendency to make plans smaller as I implement them. I start out with one plan, then simplify or skip steps completely in the moment while I am doing it.
My dream is this TINY giraffe, and I'm feeling like "why are you so small??"
... and maybe it's saying "don't make me smaller than I am"
Taking all of this into account, my focus for the next week is:
Stick with the plan. Don't make it smaller.
