The general interpretation of a dream of being a passenger in a car or any kind of car dream involves feelings of being in control or a sense of autonomy. Most people prize their freedom. They want to have the right to make decisions in their lives.
Most individuals want a sense of control. When they lose this, or they get the sense that this is slipping away, they feel uneasy. If left to fester for a long enough period of time, these individuals ultimately lose a sense of direction, purpose, and meaning. This leads to stress, feelings of helplessness, and a general lack of will.
As important as this sense of autonomy or personhood may be, it is also true that we live in a world that is out of our control. We didn’t choose our lives. In many cases, it feels like every situation we encounter happens by lottery.
It’s easy to think that we’re all accidents of birth. Some were lucky enough to be born with fortunate circumstances. Others, not so much. It seems like a game of chance. Some would call it unfair.
It is in this context that we have to analyze what a passenger dream means.
You have to understand that when you are a passenger in a dream, by definition, you’re not turning the steering wheel. While you can tell the driver where to go, at the end of the day, the decision lies with the individual occupying the drivers seat.
It’s not a surprise then that if we see ourselves being a passenger in a car in our dreams, we get feelings of lack of control, or – at least in some areas – it may seem like they have slipped out of our ability to control anything.
In general, to dream of a car represents the ability to not only make important decisions but also to take action on them. A car, after all, represents mobility, action, decision, and purpose.
In the West, many cultures define freedom as movement. A classic image of this, of course, is being in a car going full speed on an open road or highway. When you see that image with your mind’s eyes, you can’t help but feel a sense of possibility, openness, and adventure. You have left your old self behind and what lies in front of you is an amazing possibility.
This is a far cry from the darkness of uncertainty and the fear of going through the danger of the ups and downs and twists and turns of destiny. Instead, it seems that everything is so bright because, from a big picture point of view, you can see how everything falls into place.
Not surprisingly, imagining yourself in the driver’s seat of a car in your dreams indicate a sense of direction and purpose.
Well, the opposite of this is to see yourself in the passenger’s role. It’s as if your ability to direct your life and control it has been torn from you. All you can feel is the sense of passiveness as you look at the driver and compare their actions to what you see through the windshield.
General dream interpretation and symbolism about cars
To get to the heart of the meaning of a dream of being a passenger in a car, we have to first pick apart the car symbology as a dream object.
If you think about it, this is the most important sign and detail of the dream. It is the main driver of your nighttime vision. After all, it is what provides the framework for the feelings and ideas that you have in relation to controlling it.
What are the general dream meaning and the general symbolism about cars in dreams?
Dreaming of a car is a sign that you are someone who would like to have goals. Part of you is convinced that you are more than ready, willing, and able to do whatever is necessary to see those goals come to life.
Sadly, thinking that you are able to take the necessary actions is different from actually going through with it. Not surprisingly, seeing a car in your dream with few other details can imply denial regarding a decision you have made. In fact, it can be so strong that you might even be in denial that you’re feeling these things.
Whatever the case may be, your subconscious mind is comparing where you are right now with where you wish to be. In your mind’s eyes, there’s a big divide, so it’s sending you this message.
To dream of a car means to reconnect with your old hopes, wishes, and ambitions. If anything, it is a reminder that to achieve anything in life, you have to go past the dreaming stage.
This is the fun part where you think big, get lost in the idea of new activities and adventure and explore what could be. You boldly push against whatever mental box is trying to contain you. You get drunk on the vast array of events and possibilities that you can achieve with your life.
The problem with this is that it’s very easy to confuse having a goal with actually working towards it. You look at your goal as some sort of personal badge or even a talisman.
You say to yourself and to anybody who would listen that you’re going somewhere. You’re not like others who may be living resigned lives stuck in the mediocrity of their lives. You are somebody with all this potential going somewhere.
But it never gets anywhere because you’re in denial about your readiness and willingness to put in the work. You understand that when you take action, nine times out of ten – or even worse, ten times out of ten – it doesn’t pan out.
This doesn’t mean that you have failed. This means that you have to learn from your mistakes and thicken your skin. This is where the passion for all this amazing possibility starts to evaporate: what was once a sea of possibility turns into a small lake until it’s nothing more than a shallow pond.
So, we find ourselves in our nine-to-five routine. On the surface, it looks like we still have our goals, but in reality, deep down inside in the dark corners of our hearts, we’ve given up. We have resigned ourselves to our nine-to-five routine.
That is what’s driving us, and most of us are driven by fear. So, when you dream of a car, this means that your subconscious is sending you this sign as a warning. It’s forcing you to confront this reality through your dreams. You have to look at that disconnect between the things that you say to yourself and how you actually behave.
It doesn’t come as a shock that to dream of a car means you need guidance. In your heart of hearts, you have this feeling that you need to go somewhere.
But the problem is, do you have the gas? Do you have the drive and the willingness to sacrifice? Are you willing to go past the shadow of your fears into the unknown? To put in day after day or effort only to see nothing in return? Are you willing to go that far?
If you’re able to do that, then here’s another problem. You may have a good idea as to where to go, and it may be crystal clear to you, but if you’re like most people, you don’t know how to get there.
The road to the kind of life we feel we deserve is rarely a straight one. There are lots of twists and turns, detours, and ups and downs. And you best believe there are going to be many potholes in your way.
This is why when you dream of a car, you need a driver. You need somebody to guide you there in your dreams. You need somebody to provide some sort of structure.
Now, you might be thinking that most people would welcome the driver in their dreams. But here’s the problem: when they see themselves on the passenger side, and somebody is actively turning the steering wheel to get the car from point A to point B, they often feel restless.
They can’t quite put their finger on it, but they’re not settled. Depending on what happens during the journey, they’re more than eager to point the finger and blame the driver. Not surprisingly, for some, the dream meaning of someone driving the car is a feeling of losing control over their life.
Many have convinced themselves that somehow, they have been manipulated or mistreated by those who are in control of their lives. This could be your boss. This could be your significant other or even your parents.
This imagery can be even more worrisome or unsettling if, in the dream, you get feelings of anxiety as if a car crash is about to happen, and you can’t do anything about it. After all, general biblical dream interpretation car accident can be one of the most unnerving for some.
Whatever the case may be, these are the characters in your life whom you routinely point the finger at so you can blame them for whatever has gone wrong with your life. If you feel that you have lost your direction, they are the usual suspects to blame.
Depending on the context of your dream and what other signals or symbols are present, to dream about being a passenger inside a vehicle can mean a promising job is appearing on the horizon.
Now, you may be excited about it because it seems like it has all the components of your “dream job.” Maybe it pays really well and rewards things that you believe you excel at.
So far, so good, right?
Well, it turns out that when you actually take on the job, it’s far more stressful and harder than it appeared. You started with tremendous optimism and excitement, and pretty soon, you get caught up in the grind – day after day, week after week, month after month.
You realize that this is not much better than the other jobs you’ve worked before. You were miserable then; you are miserable now.
The truth is, you did not expect the number of responsibilities that this “dream job” came with. You ended up overwhelmed, and you never run out of people to blame.
Deep down inside, you feel a deep disappointment. Maybe you set yourself up for this letdown.
Another possible car dream interpretation involves transit. Pay attention to any elements in your dream that involve you going from the car to another mode of transportation.
For example, it could be a train, a cab, or even an airplane or boat.
Do you see this? If you see these signals, it can indicate that you are willing to go through changes and mix your different goals so you can go far in life.
This means a willingness to let go of your old assumptions and expectations and be more open as to what life has in store for you. This type of passenger car dream interpretation is more optimistic.
In this context, your subconscious is telling you that you have what it takes to handle the challenges and setbacks normally involved in working towards a goal.
What does it mean when a dreamer sees themself driving a car?
Take a long, hard look at your dream of driving a car. What is your facial expression? What was your emotional state when you saw yourself in those dreams?
If you’re bored or scared, it would mean that trying to take control of the direction of your life is a lot harder than those inspirational quotes and encouraging TikTok videos. It’s one thing to get pumped up because you see a video on TikTok that tells you that you can do it.
But you have to have the strength to get back up when you get knocked down again and again because that’s how you learn.
On the other hand, if you see yourself driving a car with a big smile on your face, despite the road in front of you, this can indicate that you have made the mental shift to taking on whatever comes your way. You have resolved not to let anything in your journey faze you or throw you off the train tracks.
You’re driving that car in your dreams based on your own terms, according to your inner compass, and guided by the map of your dreams. This can indicate your life path.
The meaning of a dream of being a passenger in a car
If you see yourself in the passenger side of a car in your dreams, it is a warning that you’re no longer in control. Well, it depends on other details.
In your dream, were you content to be a passenger? Or were you looking at the scene through the windshield with a lot of excitement?
If that’s the case, then this indicates that you are willing to pay your dues and follow others’ directions to get to where you want to go.
You are learning what you need to learn and taking in whatever life has to offer so it can be complete enough to go the whole nine yards. You’re humble enough to listen to a relative, parent, a trusted friend, or even a senior co-worker who offers advice for your success and well-being.
On the other hand, if you’re on the passenger side, and you have this apathetic look, or you just don’t want to be there, it can indicate that you really feel that you don’t have the authority to make decisions or decide the ultimate destination of your life.
Living your life feels like watching a movie written, directed, and acted out by somebody else. The only thing you bring to the table is you’re the person sitting back and eating popcorn as you watch situations play out. In other words, you don’t have a say in anything.
It’s like a never-ending train wreck, and you can’t help but watch in stunned disbelief.
What does it mean when a dreamer sees themself as a passenger in a car drowning in water?
When you have dreams of yourself as a passenger in a car that gets in an accident and ends up sinking or drowning in water, this is a warning that you’re about to go through some emotional turbulence involving the feeling that you don’t have much control over your life.
It’s eating you up. Any dream imagery that involves water means strong emotions.
Obviously, you felt powerless as somebody else was driving, and your worse fears involving water happened. Whoever is driving did a bad job, and now you’re drowning in water.
Keep in mind, though, that there are levels in these types of dreams. The dream meaning of a car drowning in water – with you in it – may vary depending on the context. For example, if the driver in the dream landed the car in a shallow pond instead of a deep lake or river, the imagery isn’t as horrifying.
Still, when you see this drowning dream imagery, sit up and pay attention. The biblical meaning of drowning in a dream is a very vivid omen. Your subconscious is telling you that you’re going through a tough emotional time dealing with your passivity.
Maybe you’re saying to yourself: “I’m getting older, but nothing’s changing.” This dream symbology involving water indicates that your subconscious is telling you that something’s got to give.
What does it mean to dream of being a passenger in a car that is speeding?
If you dream of being a passenger in a speeding car on the highway, this indicates that things are about to change radically. You may be excited about this, and you should be.
But to make sure that everything turns out how you expect, or you at least end up in the ballpark of the kind of life that would give you contentment, allow yourself to handle changes. This means being emotionally ready.
Many individuals botch up opportunities that arrive at them by being too mentally rigid or too focused on the small picture. You can’t nickel-and-dime your way into great success and happiness. You have to understand that for you to receive, you must first give.
There’s a lot of give-and-take. And oftentimes, you might think that others are stepping on your toes or overlooking you or taking you for granted, or somehow taking something away from you. It’s perfectly natural to feel this as you work through the great successes of your life.
Look at the big picture. Please understand that these are small irritations along the way to a great payoff.
What does it mean when a dreamer sees themself as a passenger in a car locked in a high-speed chase in a dream?
If you see yourself in a high-speed car chase and you feel that you wanted to scream at the driver, this indicates a lot of insecurities about how your life turned out. It’s as if you woke up one day, and you’re unhappy.
You’re wondering why. It seemed like such a blur.
Well, if you are focused on the wrong things, you’d be surprised as to how fast the days go. If you don’t have a goal or an ultimate destination in life, days quickly blur into each other because there’s really no purpose. And before you know it, you wake up, and you’re 65, and it’s time to retire.
If anything, this dream of high-speed car chase while you are a passenger indicates that your life is passing you by, and you’re afraid of regret. Regret is that deep, sinking feeling that pierces your heart as you slowly realize that you have very little to show for your life.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have no money. Although you can have material possessions, have you really lived? You may have relationships, but are they deep enough and meaningful enough? You may have been promoted at a job, but have you created anything?
These and other related questions hound you, but you would rather not think of them until, of course, it bubbles up in the dream image of being a passenger in a high-speed car chase.
What does it mean when a dreamer sees themself in the passenger seat of a car going along the highway in a dream?
As I’ve mentioned earlier in this post, one of the longstanding symbols of the American dream and freedom, in general, involves being in a car on an open highway. Ideally, it’s a convertible, so you get the feeling of the wind flowing through your hair. Everything is possible because the future in front of you is so bright and wide and open.
If you see yourself being a passenger of a car going full speed on the open highway, this means that your subconscious is telling you that you have a lot of opportunities right now. The idea is to be fully aware of your options and take a risk on at least one of them.
If you see your wife navigating the car and you’re sitting on the passenger side, this means you feel that there’s a power imbalance in your family.
All marriages should be balanced. It is all about yin and yang. Give and take. But apparently, there’s an imbalance. Maybe it’s your ego feeling threatened.
One common source of tension involves the wife or the female partner earning more money than the man. If this is the case, you need to man up. Don’t define yourself based on your ability to provide for your partner. Just be there for them.
This doesn’t mean to be so completely passive as to abdicate your responsibility to provide. You still have to try to live up to your fullest potential.
But if it turns out that she’s making more money because of her career choices, then let her have it. Don’t be threatened by it.
After all, if you decided to go into customer service and your wife is a doctor, you best believe that there’s going to be a disparity in your income potential, not just today but long into the future. Accept it but level yourself up to the fullest potential of the path you’ve chosen.
This doesn’t only apply to romantic partners. It can also involve power dynamics between you and a friend or even a sibling.
What does it mean when a dreamer sees a lot of people while on the passenger side in a car dream?
If you see a lot of individuals looking at you as you sit on the passenger side, this is an image of your insecurity talking to you.
In reality, people don’t mind. They are just so focused on their day-to-day grind that they really don’t have the time to notice.
But here you are thinking: “I’ve given up a lot of control in my situation, and some are beginning to notice.” This is your insecurity eroding your self-worth.
Since you know that deciding to take a more passive role in life is impacting your self-confidence and your self-worth, you’re the only person that can change that.
If anything, you should use this dream image as an invitation to be more proactive.
Since others’ validations are important to you, maybe you need to make better decisions and take full ownership of your life. Perhaps by doing so, you can change people’s opinions.
Instead of feeling judged or minimized by others, you might get them to cheer you on as you tackle one problem after another as you move toward the big successes that you have selected for yourself.

What does it mean when a dreamer sees sinking vehicles in a dream?
If you find yourself being a passenger in a vehicle sinking in water or quicksand, it means that you are feeling trapped.
Part of your mind is reacting against the decisions that you’ve made. A long-familiar dialogue is telling that you’ve picked the wrong person, you trusted the wrong group of friends, your parents never had any faith in you, and on and on it goes.
I hope you can see the pattern. This is your reactive mind blaming everyone and anyone on the planet for your own disappointing results.
You have to understand that you’re on the passenger side by choice. It’s not like somebody pointed a gun at your head and forced you to be a passenger. You decided to sit there, and the fact that the vehicle sank regardless of who is driving doesn’t matter.
Because if you wanted a different outcome, you would have taken ownership from the get-go. You didn’t, and this is eating you up.
If anything, this dream is your subconscious trying to get your attention. It’s telling you that if you’re sick and tired of feeling powerless because others are just screwing up, and it’s negatively affecting you, you need to step up and take control.
What does it mean when a dreamer dreams about being in a car with their sister?
If you see yourself and your female sibling in a car, and she’s driving, it indicates adventure. It also indicates that you have a lot to learn from each other. You obviously like her enough to trust her to make certain decisions for you.
Capitalize on this sense of trust. While somebody else is making key in your life, focus on other decisions. Study them better. Figure out exactly what you’re getting into.
Seeing yourself in a vehicle with your sibling can also signify changes in your intimate connections. Pay close to the scenarios or settings outside the window. This can indicate where you guys are headed,
If you notice something unfamiliar, it can be either an exciting new journey with opportunities, or it can involve your insecurities about each other.
To dream of one car in an expressway implies deep questions
You may be asking yourself, “What is the meaning of life?” Now, most individuals don’t ask that question in quite that form.
But you might be seeing certain patterns in your life where it seems and feels like you’re just going through the motions. No matter how hard you try, it’s as if you just get the same level of reward and the same results. Not that you are aiming for something bigger or more grandiose, but there seems to be a deadening mediocrity to your life.
You want something to change. Maybe you’d want to experience more adventure.
So, imagining yourself in an expressway with the scenery whizzing by you could be an outlet for this frustration.
Another car dream interpretation that you can get out of this is that you’re going through a rush of emotions. Maybe your relationship just took the turn for the better or is changing, and you haven’t fully adjusted. Maybe you have new responsibilities at work that went with a promotion. You’re still trying to settle in.
Therefore, you’re going through this rush of emotions, and what better analogy than seeing all these scenes flash as you sit in the passenger side on an expressway.
What does it mean to dream about being a passenger in a bus?
Being a passenger in a car can be problematic. Can you imagine being a passenger on a bus?
Well, the good news is, it depends on the context.
If you find yourself in the back of the bus, you feel helpless. You’re under the impression that the best in life has been taken, and you just have to content yourself with the crumbs. You feel small because it seems that life just has a way of giving you the short end of the stick.
It doesn’t matter how hard you work or how much you sacrifice. It’s the same old story. You end up with crumbs. It seems that being a passenger in a bus can indicate a sense of victimhood.
But do you really?
Understand that you get out of life what you put in. Most importantly, you are always in control.
Now, this is hard for a lot of people to believe, especially if they think that they’re entitled to some sort of charmed or to a kind of existence that sucks less.
But the truth is, you’re always in control of how you can respond to what life throws you away. Your house may be burning down, and you have a choice. You can act like a chicken with its head cut off and fail to do much of anything. Alternatively, you can assume that these just happen, and it’s not about you.
This is an accident, so you calmly whip out your mobile phone, get in touch with the fire department, and take care of business. You’re always in control of how you choose to respond. Nobody can take that away from you.
While it’s true that people may be the direct cause of your hardship, but ultimately, it’s how you respond to it that matters more. It definitely can mean the difference between a long-running ordeal and a nightmare that you’re hoping against hope to wake up from, but it can also be a series of challenges and puzzles to solve.
With each adverse situation overcome, you become stronger and more resourceful. And before you know it, you start carving out the kind of world you feel you deserve.
You need to let go of that victimhood mindset. Life has always been unfair. In fact, if you think about it, living in America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, or Western Europe has already given you a leg up.
So instead of looking at yourself as some sort of victim waiting for the world to change and pull you up out of the pit of your circumstances, take ownership. Understand that you have a lot more control over your life than it appears.
You don’t necessarily have to let your past failures and disappointments define you.
Dream Example #1
My fast tapping fingers on the keyboard couldn’t complete a single word I was trying to type. The radio of our car was playing the same song on a loop. My father was surprisingly silent even after listening to his favorite song.
It was strange to see him not grooving along with the old classic song. He always sings his heart out when he’s driving, especially when he’s visiting his sister.
The car was moving at a steady speed – occasionally jerking on the speed breakers. I furiously shut the laptop and removed it from my lap.
I searched for the side window sun blades from behind the back seat of the car to block the strong afternoon’s sun rays.
Deceased grandmother’s tooth
My grandmother, who was sitting beside me held my hand to calm me down. After squeezing my hand firmly she pulled out a handkerchief from her handmade woolen purse.
The handkerchief was rolled in a tiny ball. My jaw got instantly frozen after seeing a tooth covered with blood stuffed inside the ball. It was my grandmother’s tooth, which she lost on a road accident.
She lost several of them that day – including her life.
I realized that she still have resentments with me and my family for not attending her funeral.
A distinct sound of the tires screeching spread through the empty road. Our car turned 180° – skidding off a weak embankment till it plopped into the river.
The car slowly inclined down the water – floating and oscillating sideways. The water was slowly filling the car and I still didn’t hear a word from my father. My deceased grandmother still holding something in her fist, but this time it was a white lily instead of a tooth.
Her eyes filled with tears – mouth chanting prayers. She wanted us to save her or die with her. Her prayers stated that she wanted to live further so she could spend time with us.
Grandmother somehow accepted her fate and let the flower float over inside the car. I had to accept my fate, too, but before we drown further in the water and die I asked my grandmother if she was alive.
She replied that it was all a dream of mine. She’s alive all these times and would be glad to die together with us. A tear slipped out of my eyes at the thought of not seeing my mother and sister, again.
My phone vibrated in my pant’s pocket. I was surprised as our lower halves have already sunk. How come my phone was working even after being soaked in the water? My hands swam to pull out the phone from my pocket and it was my mother. I smiled at the phone – thanking god that it’s still working.
The water was rising above the shoulder, reaching my neck. Before my nose and ears would sink I received the phone. My mother scolded me over the phone for waking up late. I wanted to tell her that I was dying along with my father and grandmother, but she wasn’t listening to me at all.
I cried, trying to tell her again and again, but the phone got disconnected.
After the phone call, I noticed that my grandmother and father were missing from the scene. Only the white lily was floating on the water. And my sinking hand caught father’s spectacles. I tried to break the car window with my elbow, but it was too strong for my weak hands.
I didn’t have any hands to hold before I die, although I was promised by my grandmother to be with each other while dying.
Back from the dream
The strong fragrance of lilies hit my nose continuously until I finally push my head up. To my dismay I was in the living room of our house.
From the corner of my half-opened eyes, I could see my mother in the kitchen. My father was fast asleep with the remote in his hand while watching some news channel on the couch.
I fully opened my eyes and realized that I slept, too, while working on my assignment at the coffee table.
The news flashed on the channel that the bodies of 5 missing family members who drowned in a car 2 days ago – have been found.
I took a deep breath and thanked god, it was just a dream.
Dream Example #2
The sounds of morning birds chirping are my favorite. “Mornings like these have never been prettier,” I thought to myself as I went back inside to make a cup of coffee. But unfortunately, it was the last day in the cabin.
I thought of the natural beauty, the mystical animals, and the peace of these few days of escape.
The cabin was situated deep within the woods. The place was filled with lush green vegetation and also with many different kinds of animals, especially deers. But the few days and nights spent there with my wife were all I needed to get my motivation for work back on track.
These few days were all I could afford within my busy schedule. But like all good things, it came to an end.
I walked out of our cabin with our luggage in my hand, admiring the mist in the forest. My wife also walked out of the cabin but with a mug of coffee in her hand. “Back to our boring lives, hon,” said Luna as she grabbed my hand and led me to the passenger seat of the car.
Luna drove the car while I sat in the passenger seat, taking snaps of the surroundings with my digital camera. The pictures were very scenic after all the pictures were taken of the green mother nature. I turned to take a picture of my beautiful Luna for memories.
Her hair flowed with the air as she raised her hand to put on a hand gesture. The moment felt surreal. I just wished for the time to slow down.
The next thing I knew, the car collided with another. My wish came true. Time slowed down for me that moment as I watched her beautiful face crash into the steering wheel. My chest felt a piercing pain and fear. The car was crumpled and all the windows were shattered.
I felt as if I was floating on the passenger seat, but it was just the car turned upside down.
I stared into her open eyes as her head lay afloat. Her body was soulless, and I felt lifeless. The love of my life was gone. I didn’t even turn to look at the other car. Nothing in this world felt colorful and worth looking at.
I just stared into her eyes trying to search for the slightest of life in her.
At that moment of grief, I smelled gasoline. My lifeless heart skipped a beat. I could see the sparks of the car as the stench grew sharper.
I tried to unlock my seatbelt, but to no avail, they opened. I panicked. I started to cry out loud. I held Luna’s hands as I tried my best to control my scream. And there it was.
I woke up from a terrible nightmare drenched in sweat. I scanned my room searching for Luna, and there she was, sleeping peacefully beside me with her mouth wide open.
I smiled, looking at her beauty even when she was carelessly asleep, and hugged her like never before.
Dream Example #3
A few days ago, I went to Dhaka to attend a job interview. So after spending the whole day occupying it, I went to the bus station at night and saw that the last bus ticket was sold. I was very disappointed because the next day I had another urgent job in Chittagong.
Just then, a man came and asked if I could hire him to take me to Chittagong in his car. Besides, I agreed as there was no other way. It was midnight when I left Dhaka. I didn’t know when exactly I fell asleep during the day. But suddenly, everything around me seemed to change. I felt like I was awake.
The driver is driving his car at maximum speed. I told him to go a little slower, or at least an accident could happen. But he did not answer me. I felt freezing, so I asked the driver to turn off the AC.
But again, he did not answer my words and did not turn off the AC. After saying a few more times, I was a little annoyed when he wasn’t listening to me. Looking glass, I tried to look at the driver. But what I saw scared me.
There was a cold look in his eyes. And for some reason, it seemed to me that the guy who was driving and this man were not the same people. I kept telling him to reduce the speed of the car, to stop the vehicle. But he was not listening to me. Instead, he increased the pace. He was speeding so much that I could not notice anything around me.
At one point, I got into a scuffle with him.
I kept trying to stop the car, but he was holding the steering wheel very tight. Suddenly he pushed me away, and the car seemed to collide with something. The vehicle fell into a ditch or pond, slowly filling the car with water. I repeatedly shouted at the driver to get out of the car.
But he sat still, holding the steering wheel. I couldn’t open the car door. The door was locked, slowly the water came up to my throat, I tried my best to break the glass of the car but I couldn’t. Suddenly I heard a car door open. I was about to get out of the vehicle. Just then, the driver grabbed my leg and tried to keep me stuck in the car.
I was trying desperately to get out of the vehicle. I was out of breath; I couldn’t breathe anymore. I repeatedly wanted to kick him out. And then my driver woke me up. Said, “What happened to you? Why were you moaning in such a strange way? We have come to Comilla, let’s have dinner.”
After dinner, we start the journey again. I told him what I saw in my dream. He smiled and said, “You were tired, so you had such a weird dream,” he joked, “Do you think I am a ghost when you see me?”
I looked at him. He has the same blue eyes as I saw in my dream.
Dream interpretation and symbology have fascinated me ever since I read Freud’s classic, “The Interpretation of Dreams.” Ever since, I have explored Christian, Jewish, Hindu, and Buddhist as well as Jungian psychological ideas about the meaning of dreams. Thanks for joining me in my exploration of the amazing intersection between our conscious waking world and the rich expanse of our subconscious-the home of our intuition, instincts, and hidden potential.
