By far one of the most common dreams are dreams of cars or vehicles. Most folks make the error with these dreams by attempting to interpret the dream from a literal stand point.
I can assure you, that this approach will most certainly give you a misleading interpretation. Just like a house in a dream, a car represents, for the most part, the life of someone. This being the case then let’s looks at a few factors concerning dreaming about cars. The driver seat of the car always represents a place of control. So if you are dreaming that you’re in a car, but you’re not in the driver's seat, then the dream is indicating you are not in control. However, whoever is in the driver seat is the one in control.
If in the dream your car or a car tire is flat, the dream is indicating delay, setback, and hindrances in your life or someone’s life. Let’s say you’re driving, and you decided you want to slow down or come to a stop, but for some reason, you are pressing breaks, but your vehicle would not stop. This indicates a lack of control or an inability to manage certain affairs in your life. Let’s look at another scenario, let’s say you had a dream and in this dream, you are driving but there someone in the front passenger seat with you. Now, whoever is in that passenger seat represents an influence. So let’s say the person in the passenger seat was your enemy, then the dream is indicating that someone is challenging your position of control.
Another scenario, let’s say you dreamt that you were speeding or driving foolishly, then the dream is indicating a reckless and selfish life. , meaning that you only care about you. Dreaming about a car accident means clashing with others be it verbal or physical. What about having dreams where you are driving a convertible, driving a convertible is suggesting that you are uncovered, exposed or vulnerable. It also suggests that not all your bases are covered, meaning that there is something left unattended in your life.
Dreaming of you reversing in a car, indicates backwardness, not progressing. Dreams, where your car has, is not working or your car just cut off while driving, this shows you losing your zeal, motivation which will also be accompanied with a stagnation of your life. Dreaming of a red car represents a passionate person, while dreaming of a black car represents, evil, lack, a negative life. Dreams of seeing your car in the repair shop indicate health issues. What about you having dreams of someone driving your car or something driving a car but they're not visible, the dream is suggesting that you're being influenced by a spirit, depending on the behavior of this unseen person will determine the type of spirit that's influencing you.
What about you having dreams where you're racing with someone, well the dream is indicating that you or the person that you're racing with is very competitive. Are you having dreams of you driving a Jeep or heavy duty truck? Well, the dream is indicating that you are well prepared and equipped to handle whatever difficulty that would appear on your journey of life. Have you ever had a dream where in the dream you were driving but you ran out of gas, such a dream is indicating that you are not prepared, or you are not paying attention to your resources? Have you had dreams where you saw your car or a car overloaded? Such a dream is indicating that you or that person is weighed down with troubles and problems and as a result, it will slow down their progress in life. Dreaming of riding around in a circle, indicates that you are about to or currently experiencing the same situation all over again.
If you are having to dream of someone or a wrecker towing your car, the dream is indicating that you will receive assistance. Dreaming of a brand new car means a change for the better, a better life accompanied with new options and opportunities. On the other hand, dreaming of an old car and depending on how old the car is, represents you being stuck in the past it also indicates that you are irrelevant regarding where you're currently at in your life, bottom line you are in need of upgrading yourself. Having dreams where you are positioned in the back seat of a car indicates submitting, if the vehicle belongs to you then the dream is showing you that you are not only out of control but out of your assigned position.
In closing one of the most important things to take note of in a dream concerning cars is; who is sitting in the driver's seat of that car because the driver's seat always represents a position of control. Therefore if the vehicle in the dream belongs to you and your Mother or friend is driving your car the dream is clearly indicating that they are controlling your life. However, if your husband is driving the family car, then this is a good dream because it indicates he's in the head position of the family which is where he should be. If the dream is displaying where both of you have your own separate cars but your husband or wife is driving your car, then the dream is revealing a controlling spouse.
