Explore Your Dreams: How We Make Our Way Through Life.



by Cathy Pagano May 18, 2011 03:31 PM EST


Since dreams show us how we are handling different aspects of our life, it's inevitable that the issue of how we are making our way through the world will come up.  When this issue appears in our dreams, it usually involves vehicles of one sort or another.

When we dream about  cars, it indicates how we navigate through situations or stages of life.  Cars symbolize our power to make our own way through life, how focused we are on our personal goals, and how active a role we play in getting what we want.   You might dream you're in a car and discover that someone else is driving.  Since a car symbolizes how much power you feel you have in moving forward in life, having someone else in the driver's seat isn't an ideal situation.  If one of your parents is driving the car , we could say that you are not fulfilling your own purpose, but living out parental expectations.  You are taking a more passive role in your life.  So cars often indicate how independent you are and the amount of control you feel you have over your life.

Bicycles, on the other hand, symbolize an even more personal way of directing your own life.  Bicycles are powered by our legs, and so this vehicle is powered by our personal beliefs (thighs) and standpoint ( legs and feet).  A bike takes balance to move forward and so represents how we try to achieve balance in our lives and in our relationships.   Let's look at a bike dream.

I am riding a bike through traffic and I am entering a maze of cars.  I am on a ten speed bike, trying to find my way through the maze of cars.  I look behind me and see a man on a tricycle following me.  He's very relaxed and eating ice cream as he rides.  I can see that he is really enjoying his ice cream, smiling as he licks the ice cream with his tongue.

This dream speaks about the need to balance work and play.  The dreamer was very busy trying to get her business up and running.   The maze of cars could represent all the many issues she has about networking and getting her message out in the world.  It really does seem like a maze when you're doing it all on your own.  The bike seems to indicate that she is trying to create a balance between work and play, being and doing.  A ten speed bike says that she has options over how fast and how easy this ride will be.  But it's the man on the tricycle that shows how balanced she is. A tricycle has three wheels, and therefore is more easily balanced than a bicycle.  Three is the number of process, of working things out.  So the man, who represents a shadow (he's behind her) aspect of her masculine, 'doing' nature, shows that she is inclined to relax and have fun in the process.  Small children ride tricycles too, and often it's their first taste of power and movement.  Ice cream symbolize pleasure and fun, the ability to savor life in the moment (because ice cream melts so fast!)  So she's dicovering that even though she has to find her way through this maze to achieve her goals, she's going to do it in a child-like, fun and balanced way and savor every moment of it.

This is a wonderful dream because it is an example of a better way to go about business, not just for this woman, but for all of us.  Our world is getting so complex - that maze of cars - that we often end up confused and lost.  But if we go after our goals in a more balanced way, we get to enjoy ourselves and life in the process.  The old ways of being successful are so often stressful and unbalanced.  This woman is finding her own unique way to fulfill her goals.  I think she'll achieve them!

Until next time,
Sweet Dreams!
