The magic of STRUCTURE [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!)!

Over the year I've gotten a lot of push-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. The repetition helps you go deeper into the process.

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 and everything this entails. Having a less dramatic creative process (like less battling self doubt and more happily humming to myself while I write and draw). 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: My intuition sent me an almost-scary message about being more clear about something. LOL that was vaguely written, but I am being more clear with myself, it's not something I'm ready to share about.


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 big star in the sky with rainbows shooting out from it.

And it feels like CLARITY and CERTAINTY, things I have not been feeling so much lately.

I sit down and ask the star to shine its light on me. I feel like clarity and certainty exist, my dream is holding them for me, and it’s fine that I don’t feel that way right now. I feel tired and foggy and tired of feeling foggy!

I wonder if this light can clear fog and resistance, which is what I think is feeding the fog?

Suddenly the star has a hand, and it’s holding its hand over my head, shining every colour of the rainbow onto me. The threads of rainbow colours beam down, and then move around and hug me. I feel a big “It’s ok to feel how you feel, sweetheart"



Last week’s focus was: Take good care of myself, honour my capacity, and stay present with my dreams. I know how I feel when I am ALIGNED. Focus on feeling this way more often.

What happened in the last week? 

This week I started to feel grounded about the free weekly calls I am doing! This is a total “follow your dream’s advice and do the thing, you don’t have to feel ready” kind of situation. It’s not even like I haven’t done tons of free classes it just feels like the landscape has changed and it’s felt awkward to get into it.

I am so wildly immensely grateful for everyone who has shown up and participated on these calls. It’s the community that makes them magic and I wasn’t sure how that would be without our safe private container.

Though in all honesty, it’s not like a lot of people will watch these - getting people’s attention online is soooo hard so it’s just the people who really align with what I’m talking about who will even begin to be curious about watching. But it feels different to have a thing be “out there” and I am so grateful to not be out there alone on this one.

I am crying as I write this, mostly from allergies which are really bad today and I am sitting outside but it also feels really emotional. I am so grateful for the people that the Creative Dream Incubator has drawn in. And the last… umm 6 years (yikes!) I have felt so conflicted about calling new people in and this is the thing I need to work on now and I can remember to draw on the magic of what we already have going on.

Arghugh! I see why I feel so foggy, I am in an uncomfortable part. I am moving through it, I do see an end in sight, but it’s uncomfortable and so the resistance/fog does creep in.

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

I do feel uncomfortable and being uncomfortable, lol! But I also feel proud of myself, for making the commitment that my dream asked me to make, and sticking to it. I know the discomfort, and the things that happen as I work through it, are a part of the process and I do feel good about the whole thing. I do feel like by the end of summer I will have a whole new relationship with how I put my work out there. One that feels grounded and stable in an unstable world. That’s the dream anyway 🙂

What do I need now? Permission to BE IN THE PROCESS and not have it all figured out, to not be exactly where I want to be in terms of my habits and work flow and celebrate the little steps I am taking.

What does my dream need now?

It’s smiling and raining down rainbows on me. Just stay with it, honey. And do keep working on organization and structure, like we’ve been exploring.

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

Explore structure more deeply. What kinds of structure would be helpful now: for my ongoing journey of putting my work out there, and for the journal project (I did get great advice about that last week, keep exploring where that leads) and what else in my life needs more structure?
