Often you will dream about being in a car.
It is important to notice who’s driving the car, as a car represents your “drive” in life or how your propel yourself from the present time toward your future. If you are not driving, notice the position in the car where you are sitting. If you are in the front passenger seat, whoever is driving the car represents the drive in your life. If you know this person, describe their personality in three words, such as “Judith is quiet, responsible, and squeamish.” That is the adopted program that is driving your life in this dream. You are riding shotgun to your own life.
I used to have dreams of not even having a car, but sort of a skateboard apparatus that I propelled with my hand. Needless to say, that was not a good thing. I was driving myself fist over fist — not an easy way to travel through life.
If you are in the back seat, you are in an unconscious state and cannot act or drive on your own behalf. You are literally being driven by adaptations you have made in the past.
Lord help you if you are in the trunk, seriously. You have compartmentalized your original self to such a degree that you cannot even ride with your driving programs.
Often you may be observing cars being driven. Notice their drivers and, again, their characteristics.
The make and model of the vehicle can give you clues about what time of your life your dream maker wants you to review. If it is a model that is more likely to have been driven when you were a child, then you are looking at a childhood issue.
What if the vehicle you are driving is going nowhere? Then you are stuck in your internal force to move forward. Again notice is this a past issue, which would be indicated by an older model of car. The car will indicate what time in your life you are seeing; it could be the present time or herald back to your childhood, teen, or college days. Also look for other time indicators, like your own age in the dream, or the presence of other people in the dream — are they in your present life or from your past?
Sitting in a parking lot may mean you are not moving forward, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. The parking lot itself can tell you a lot about what is going on. Is it underground? That would tell you it is a deep unconscious stowing of an internal force. The “parking” may mean that you are simply resting that “drive” for the time period you are viewing. Is it in a park? A field? A stadium? These all indicate the state of your mind that is being brought up.
If the vehicle is a truck, you are looking at a more masculine or forceful drive.
The colour of the vehicle indicates the emotion of the time that you are reviewing: pink being a feminine aspect, yellow a student or learner, blue an intuitive aspect, etc.
For instance, if you are in the backseat of a black car driven by your older brother, it is the contaminated or original (black) adaptations you made in your life to be his sister that is driving the time of your life in the dream. Notice the car age: Is it new or old?
A person recently told me of a dream where they were trying to drive their car but the front bottom rubber shield was digging in and prohibiting their forward motion. They, in real life, had lost this rubber part by driving over a bump. So the dream maker was using that as the “wallpaper” of their dream to tell them that something was impeding their progress in life at this time.
Riding on a bus or train indicates that you are looking at a collective drive — a drive that is created from your reaction to society, usually concerning social mores or standards.
On a bus or train it is normal to not be driving the vehicle, as society has molded you to these social drives, such as marriage, jobs, religion, etc. These destinations are often not easy to change, particularly on trains, as those programs run on a preset track. These are basic conditioning drives that serve as your basic view of how to operate your life.
Remember this about dreams: Nothing is shown in your dream by accident. It is common, as I mentioned before, that the dream maker will use everyday recent events to stage a dream, like background wall paper. However, everything that is presented has a meaning, so the more you can glean from the dream, the more information you have to work with. Are you lost in your vehicle? Is the road treacherous or uphill? Is there a missing bridge up ahead? All these factors help you to better understand where you are going in your unconscious mind.
In essence, you should be the conscious operator of your drive. If not, you need to look at what force is driving your life.
