Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook DREAM DICTIONARY : This dream dictionary makes the claim that it is better than any other. Why? It works on the assumption that if something very big and important happens the day before then you will surely dream about it. This dictionary collects together such dreams and has meticulously studied their meanings. Try to study the definitions and questions below and see how they relate to real life right now.

CARS : Cars are symbols of the real life conscious world. They are symbols of how you are progressing towards your goals. So think about the practical ways in which you have been moving towards your goals. Is the dream making some point about how well or how badly you are progressing. Are you heading in the right direction. A car at a standstill could suggest that you are taking a pause or that you have come up against some delay.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Are you feeling very impatient at present?
- Did things suddenly grind to a standstill yesterday?
- Do you feel its time to change your direction?
- Are you trying to make progress in some way?
- Do you feel that you are heading in the wrong direction?

KEY WORDS : Impatient, direction, moving, progress,standstill,reckless

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "the direction things are heading"
- "moving forward"
- "if we behave like that"
- "at a standstill"
- "impatient"
- "its time to take a change in direction"
- "lacking any direction"
- "heading in the wrong direction"

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
DREAM ANALYSIS : What is the symbolic meaning of Car parks and parking in dreams?

Sometimes the people in the car with you may give some hint as they may link to an issue involving them. Consider also where the car is heading and other clues. E.g.

"Well I did not want my relationship with my brother to head in the direction it did but he pushed me and I just slammed down the phone. Now I do not talk to him and it has calmed me down"[Dream Dictionary - in car with brother as a plane crashes]

"I know I could get back together with my ex-girlfriend but now I realise that its over and I do not want to get back together."[Dream Dictionary - ex drives off in different direction without another guy]

"I now know the relationship is over."[Dream Dictionary - dreamers ex drives away]

"I really want to be able to let go of my tensions and show the anger at my break up"[Dream Dictionary - loud teenagers in car]

"I really want to impress my works inspector and show him in what DIRECTION we are going in"[Dream Dictionary - Paris Hilton is shoved into a car]

"My boyfriend simply will not allow me to put forward my own opinions. We always have to follow his CHOICE"[Dream Dictionary - boyfriend slams on brakes]

"I realise I am behaving recklessly at work. I am really past caring and do not worry about what I say. I am already applying for other jobs"[Dream symbol - I bump into another car and do not care]

There maybe some other clue in the way that the car drives as to what the dream is about. E.g.

"I am a little impatient at the moment"[Dream Dictionary - reckless driver]

"Whatever we do we simply cannot make any progress. People will just not accept us"[Dream Dictionary - burnt car]

"I have got a new job in a call centre and it really annoys me having to stick strictly to the guidelines. We have got a script which covers all situations."[Dream Dictionary - robot drives car]

"I realise now that THIS HAS TO STOP. Either he changes or the relationship is over "[Dream Dictionary - slamming on brakes][the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

"if I do move then I will miss all my friendships in Dallas"[Dream symbol - driving car to Dallas]

"I really want to work in the police force but since I was made redundant my life seems so empty and without PURPOSE"[Dream Dictionary - car stops]

"I have had lots of bad luck recently and lost lots of money but I do not want that to affect my momentum in life. I want to keep moving forward and not allow myself to get stuck in a rut"[Dream Dictionary - driving car that I do not want to damage ]

"I had the flu two weeks ago and I still feel warn out and unable to do anything"[Dream Dictionary - old car]

"I see I am not heading in any DIRECTION right now. I am just in a rut"[Dream symbol - dreamer in back seat]

"I am not sure that I practice I hold true to my religious beliefs . i tell to many dirty jokes and swear. Its important because I am thinking of helping out with sunday school" [Dream Dictionary - broken mirror in car]

"I seem unable to think about anything other than my trial. I may be sent to jail"[Dream Dictionary - car is in a jail]

"I have been thinking a lot about my old friend from school and she is here in the UK so I wondered about meeting up with her."[Dream dictionary - run to car]

Simply put car dreams often link to the direction of your day to day activities. Its very much a symbol of the facts on the ground. Its not so much linked to your feelings but actual progress or the lack of it. E.g.

"I keep trying to keep myself going. My illnesses means I have to keep busy to build my strength up"[Dream Dictionary - cars]

"I really enjoy work but right now its just constant stress"[Dream symbol - car]

"My sister has run away from home and LIFE HAS STOPPED. We are unable to think about anything else"[Dream Dictionary - car accident]

Think about ways in which your life is going and if you have felt like you wish to change course or the direction of your life than the dream may link to that. E.g.

"I am thinking a lot about motherhood. I know its easy to have a baby and never go back to a career. I am not sure I want that as I want to pursue my career."[Dream Dictionary - car]

"I recently lost my job. Although I found a new job I absolutely hate it. I know I cannot just quit until I find a new job"[Dream Dictionary - car]

"I left my job because everything was heading in the wrong direction"[Dream symbol - grandfathers old car]

"I have got to accept that the realtionship is over. Its just he really hurt me. But I have got to start MOVING FORWARD"[Dream Dictionary - following a car driven by exs wife]

"I realise that if I approach life in a more adult way then I can tend to achieve more"[Dream Dictionary - cars]

A car crash may show that something disasterous is happening or that you fear it could happen. E.g.

"I worry about my boyfriend in Iraq as its so dangerous there."[Dream symbol - boyfriend in car wreck]

SAMPLE DREAM - I was driving my car on the highway and was headed for work. I was the only one in the car and the highway was smooth with just the slightest curve. When I got to the exit ramp, I saw my Ex in a grey car with a guy named Chad. Chad is a guy that I've seen in school but I don't know personally and he has no connection with my Ex. Anyway, they were right across the intersection, she turned right, and I turned left. That was it

THE REALITY The dreamer recently broke with his girlfriend and was a bit down about it. He could back together with her but wasn't sure if that was wise.

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I could easily get back together with my ex girlfriend but I think we have both gone our own ways now"

DREAM ANALYSIS The dreamer felt that even though he had broken up with his girlfriend there was a hope he could get back together with her if he wished. So this dream probably represents the final decision in his mind. Her car is grey which is an uninspiring colour - that probably symbolises how he feels as if he still has no feelings for her. She is with Chad - a guy from school who has no connection with his Ex. So perhaps Chad symbolises the dreamers wish to be like Chad - and have no connection with his Ex. Finally they go their own separate ways showing that the decision is now final in his mind and he has no regrets.

Symbolic Meanings
CAR : "the direction that you are going in life"
EXIT : "ready to finish the relationship"
HIGHWAY : "the way you go through life - the things you do and how you do them"
INTERSECTION : "a crossroads in your life - time to make a final decision"
