🦄⚡️Creative Dream Incubator Weekly Coaching Call is today!!

Hope to see you there - or catch the replay over the weekend! Call details + replays are here. And after the call I'll start a thread in the forum to share your plans for the week and as a space for accountability and support.

If you can't be there live but have a question or there's something you are struggling with, send me an email this morning and I'll discuss it on the call and offer you some suggestions for things to do.

🦄

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:

PART ONE:

My dream is:

I want it because:

When I have it I will feel:

Leaving all of this blank this week. I feel IN TRANSITION. Not that my dreams have changed, but that I have (?) I don't know, but this is what feels right so I am doing it.

I wanted to start doing these by hand on the new printable sheets (these are free for everyone, not just membership members) and I am kind of ready... I have the printed sheet and my pens with me, but somehow I don't FEEL ready to make the change?

Today is all about being willing to do what feels right, and not necessarily understand what I am doing. If I am in a period of change, then things must change, and change can feel chaotic and uncertain when you're in it.

I'm sitting in the a park, using the wifi since I still have none at home, and I just looked up... sunlight is streaming through the trees and dandelion fluffs are floating everywhere. 100% magic.

Something like 25 years ago, I was driving with my then-boss and his wife to a Christmas dinner and there was this amazing pink and purple sunset and I thought to myself "In a world with a magic sunset like this, I can't be meant for this shitty job"

I get that same feeling from the rays of light and the dandelion fluffs. There is so much magic in the world. I am not here to struggle. None of us are. We are meant to create beautiful, magical things.

PART TWO:

Invite the soul of your dream in (using the Dream Lab practice) to help you with the rest of the prompts.

I'm not working with my "big dream" I am focused on one thing I want to work on this month, from this week's New Moon Call (which was amazing! If you weren't there, get the replay!)

Sitting in the magic of "the world is such a magical place and we can do amazing things" I call in my dream and...

Nothing....

I feel unsettled in my chest. There are so many birds chirping, usually I love it but now it feels like too much.

And then I get it. I need to confront my STUFF about having this thing I want to HAVE in the next month. The overwhelm. The constriction. The places where I don't believe.

My dream is on the other side of all of this.

PART THREE:

Last week’s focus was: Make art. Be IN your Creative Magic.

What happened in the last week?

Week 2 of no internet (!) Yes I definitely made more art, filled so many journal pages, and felt IN my creative magic - when I wasn't flustered about how to run an internet business without internet, lol.

AND I feel some pressure about this thing I want/need to do over the next month.

It's that thing when you really STEP INTO doing the thing, and then all the inner stuff you have about it suddenly RIGHT THERE. People describe it as "your stuff coming up" but actually it's YOU who went to IT. This stuff would just stay unresolved within you if you didn't go for your dream.

So, I had a lot of that. NOT FUN. AND I have been through this enough to know I will work through it.

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

Right now, as I write this, I feel so sure. I know I've been in this position before, and I have worked through and healed and shifted and made magic. I have all this experience of every time I've done it before helping me.

AND I know later today I will probably feel FILLED with self doubt.

I feel all of it.

What do I need now?

I'm still really thinking about that Dream Self drawing I shared here yesterday and how her heart is so deeply rooted. How she stays so plugged into her magic, and so far away from overwhelm. So I need to keep thinking of this, and looking at where/how I set boundaries around not getting overwhelmed, and how that could shift.

Also, meditation feels especially magic lately, and I need MORE.

What does my dream need now?

I see flashing lights pointing to how I couldn't see my dream and just got uncomfortable trying to meet with it earlier... it's like "ANDREA LOOK AT THIS, WORKING ON THE INNER STUFF THAT HOLDS YOU BACK:

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

Inner Work. Meditation + art + being with the places in me that want to hold me back.
