Dream 01_200609

Dream of the Month (September 2006)
  1. Title: Over The Edge

  2. Date of the Dream: 8/29/2006 (mailed Tuesday, 29 August 2006)

  3. Dream: My sister, my best friend, her four-year-old daughter and I were in a car I was driving. We just seemed to be talking as we drove over a bridge, when suddenly our car flew off the bridge! We must have been going at a high rate of speed, because the car landed on the other side of the water on a cliff. Before it landed on the cliff I screamed at them to get their seatbelts off. (I believe I have a fear of not being able to get out of my seatbelt.) We got out of the car and had to swim to the other side, where another one of my sisters was waiting for us. I didn't want to get in the water.

  4. Significant life event: Nothing that I can think of that is significant

  5. Personal concerns/issues: Am having personal issues dealing with emotions. I was in an abusive relationship many years ago and buried all the feelings that went with it. I coped this way and never dealt with the pain. Now that I am in a relationship again any emotion that I feel makes me feel like I am overwhelmed and going crazy.

  6. Associations: I haven't made any.

  7. Category: Nightmare

  8. Pen Name: lostgirl3

Dr. Holloway's Comments:

Striking Characteristics: Vehicles that run amok reflect a sense of pressure, confusion or crisis.

The title of this dream is a doorway to interpretation: something is causing this dreamer to feel she is going over a psychological edge in life. This is not necessarily a negative thing, but anxiety and fear of losing control always arise when situations take us to an edge in ourselves we have not previously visited.

Since bridges are metaphors of transition and connection, it is likely this dreamer is moving from an old life to a new one, and in transit, there is a test of courage or a challenge making the process subjectively tough. She feels as if this is happening without her volition, and does not want to be trapped; yet she also does not want to get in the water (dive into the new life). The dream suggests that her own solid center (represented by the sister on the shore) is there for her. This is a time to be gentle with the ups and downs of your own process, to trust your finer instincts, and to walk gently through your fears. Clarity will be there for you, if you ask for it.
