Dreams About Car Crashes

The Meaning of Cars in DreamsIn dreams, cars often represent you and reveal how you are getting through life. Depending upon the context of the dream, a car can symbolize our physical body, mind, ego (Freud’s definition), consciousness, personality, and/or our life in general or the direction our life is taking. A car can also represent our social persona (Carl Jung) or who we are to others, also known as our social image or our social status. The context of a car dream shows us how much power and control we have (or believe we have) over our lives as well as how successful we are at moving from one stage of life to another. When analyzing a car dream, it is important to ask yourself the following questions: Where are you in the car? If you are sitting, which seat are you in? Sitting in the driver’s seat shows you have or attempt to have control in life. If someone else is in the driver’s seat, it is possible this person or what they symbolize to you is controlling your life. Sitting in the passenger seat may mean you have a passive approach to life. Sitting in the backseat may mean you are taking a “backseat” in your life or specific situations. It is important to keep in mind that other people often do not symbolize themselves but rather an aspect within you that you identify with them (example, your angry aunt may symbolize your anger or your negative approach to something). How’s the ride? How the car is riding often shows us what kind of obstacles and hardships we are experiencing. A bumpy ride, seeing rocks in the road or other obstacles and dangers, including a traffic sign indicating danger, shows us what environment we are currently navigating through and how easy or hard we feel the journey has been. How’s the car? If the car is missing a tire or other important part, you might ask what is missing in your life that you need right now? Do you have a flat tire? If so, you may feel as though your life is going nowhere and you are stuck or stranded in your current situation. Was the car overheating? Dreaming of a car overheating could mean you are overheating and expending too much energy. You may need to slow down and may be at risk of burning out. You are taking on too much and may need a break to re-evaluate. Are there other cars around you? The other cars could symbolize others but more likely represent other aspects of who you are that are either unknown to you or repressed/ignored. If you know these people in real life, they could represent traits, behaviors, or feelings you associate with them that you also possess or want to possess. Being in traffic could symbolize being crowded or overwhelmed. What color is the car? Colors can symbolize different things to different people but many colors have a general meaning to all. For more information, view the Dream Dictionary of Colors. How do you feel in the dream? Driving fast and experiencing a sensation of elation means something quite different than driving fast and experiencing feelings of fear and panic.

Dreams About Car Crashes

To dream that you are in a car crash indicates that your beliefs, lifestyle, or goals are clashing with another’s. It may also represent a shocking situation or painful experience. Alternatively, car crashes may forewarn of your dangerous or careless driving habits. In particular, if a car crashes into you, then it suggests that your lifestyle, beliefs or goals may be in conflict with another’s. It may also be symbolic of a jolting experience or injured pride.

Nice hub, I am always interested in dreams. My dreams show me what will happen if I don’t follow the warnings and change what is needed. Since I was a teen I have had dreams that have warned me of trouble ahead. We dream every night but the only ones I remember are ones that my subconscious is sending me warnings. Our conscious mind may not let us see what’s a head because it is working on dealing with day to day life, though it picks up all the signs and signals but when I sleep my subconscious formulates all the information into a dream. From what I read, it seems like you have a good handle on dream interpretation.

Parked Car in DreamsSeeing a parked car in a dream may mean you are stuck and life has stalled: you are going nowhere fast. This could have negative and positive meanings. If you need a break, a detour from your current path (perhaps a break from work?), then this is a positive symbol. If you have goals and dreams that you are attempting to accomplish, then this symbol may mean your focus needs to be channeled differently. Have you been waiting for things to come to you or land in your lap? A parked car is rather passive and may relate to you being too passive in your life. Perhaps you have been “spinning your wheels” and need a fresh start with a new approach. If you can’t remember where you parked your car, you may be feeling lost in life and not only uncertain where to go but even where to start. You are undecided about what you want to do with your life.

Dreams About Car Crashes

Recently I’ve had twice a similar dream. On the first dream I’m on the highway (where I go to work) there are no cars around. The car start spinning, slides out of the road and lands in water (maybe a lake). Last night I dreamt I was paying for something at a store. My best friend and someone else walked ahead of me and left me behind. I couldn’t keep up because I was carrying heavy bags. When I made it to the parking lot I saw my husband leaving. My best friend also got in her car and left. I’m screaming “hey wait for me, don’t leave me behind!”. I get in my car and immediately my car start spinning and slides off a bridge. In this dream the fall is longer and slower. I’m trying to decide if I should open the door and jump – then I start thinking “but what if I forget how to swim? No, everything will be fine. Maybe it will be better if I stay inside the car – but what if the door won’t open?” as the moment got close to make a decision before the car hit the water – I woke up. What could this mean? Thank you.
