Dream 01_201002

Dream of the Month (February 2010)
  1. Title: Out Of Control In Reverse
  2. Date of the Dream: 2010 (mailed Friday, 22 January 2010)
  3. Dream: My mom, dad, and I were leaving my grandmother's house. I prepared to get into the back seat as usual, but my mom got into the back seat instead. So I took the front passenger seat. My dad got into the driver's seat. It seemed like we were parked as normal, but then we were across the street on a steep hill with a fence in front of us, as if we parked there. My dad was trying to put on his seat belt when the car started to quickly go in reverse. Luckily, we did not hit anything. My dad mentioned the car went too fast for him to do anything. Then it seemed like we were in the same spot again on the hill, going in reverse quickly, but this time we hit a wood fence and it came down. Then we drove off.
  4. Significant life event: None
  5. Personal concerns/issues: I've been feeling weird all week. Sometimes I will feel weird for no reason, good for no reason, or sad for no reason. I've been wanting this week to be over. I've also been having weirder dreams than usual for me almost everyday. I only remembered bits and pieces, not enough to enter here.
  6. Associations: None
  7. Category: Anomalous
  8. Pen Name: Sperlock

Dr. Holloway's Comments:

Striking characteristics: Dreams set in cars often reflect progress or difficulty related to current challenges and goals.

Misadventures in cars often highlight stumbling blocks encountered on the way to the next big thing in our lives. This dream gives the sensation of slipping backwards, going downhill, moving in reverse. Things feel out of control. The dream does not present an emotional crisis; rather the dreamer is mystified as events unfold quickly and unpredictably. When adults dream that their parents are driving, it suggests the dreamer is mastering challenges from early life or family mythology. Even when we “know better” than our family, we still get to push through their boundaries in a visceral way later in life. The waking life challenges are subtler than the dreams, because they take place inside us, and may only be mirrored by silly difficulties or quirky people who block our progress. This dreamer is literally breaking down barriers (fences), which seem to be both in front of, and behind him. While heroic action is taught as the solution to all challenges, this dreamer is discovering, as we all do, that the light of his awakened consciousness will rule the day.
