The spiritual meaning of a car in a dream is believed to be a symbol of control which aims to highlight a current conflict or thought the dreamer is consciously experiencing.
Cars play an integral part in our everyday lives. They are the primary means of transport for most middle-class individuals and families. As such, it does not come as a surprise that sometimes one will have dreams involving cars.
Universally, in spiritual terms, dreams with a car in them are meant to highlight a spiritual gateway and symbolise control.
Factors like the colour of the car, the actions of the car, and the dreamer in the dream all affect how the dream will ultimately be interpreted and understood.
Spiritual significance of cars in dreams
As briefly mentioned previously, the appearance of a car in a dream means the dreamer should confront some aspect of their lives that they may feel they have lost control of or over which they are questioning their level of control.
This is because cars are universally understood to represent a spiritual gateway. Therefore, these types of dreams urge the dreamer to come to terms with situations in which they might feel like their control is questioned or destabilised.
Furthermore, the car is said to represent self-worth, a feeling of freedom, movement, power, and success. Therefore, it important to consider how you felt in the dream instead of just details like the car’s colour and other, less significant actions in the dream.
Spiritual meaning of a car in a dream
Understanding how you felt in the dream is one of the most important factors when it comes to understanding the spiritual meaning of cars in your dream(s). This is as the car is meant to be a symbol of the dreamer’s control.
Understanding how you felt in the dream allows the dreamer to gauge whether the dream served as affirmation of what they already felt, as a precautionary warning, or if it attempted to bring to the fore something that the subconscious has been feeling.
Other factors that will affect how the dream is interpreted spiritually are nuanced in detail below. It is important to remember and share these details with your dream analyst or interpreter if you have one, as this will help in their reading.
All dreams and their meanings are subjective and based on the individual dreamer.
1. The car colour
Part of what impacts the understanding of the car and its symbolism is the colour. For instance, dreaming of a white car supposedly suggests that you need to be more cautious of others’ feelings, as your opinions may be hurtful towards others.
On the other hand, dreaming of a red car can represent passion and zeal for life, and blue is understood as a sense of satisfaction and peace in your waking (conscious) life.
Additionally, a black car can be fundamentally interpreted to mean you are feeling emotionally vulnerable, or that the people around you are deceitful.
2. Actions of the dreamer
The actions of the dreamer in the dream with a car is integral in interpreting the dream accurately. For instance, dreaming of yourself behind the steering wheel feeling calm suggests that you feel in control and at peace with the direction your life is taking.
If you are dreaming that someone is driving and you are in the passenger’s seat, it suggests that you feel like someone else or other people are in control of your life.
Additionally, how you feel in response to this in the dream will reflect how you feel about it in real life. Dreaming of driving an expensive car suggests that the dreamer might be seeking or chasing wealth.
3. Actions of the car in the dream
In extension to the actions of the dreamer, the actions of the car in the dream are believed to mean something significant spiritually as well.
For example, dreaming of a stationary car suggests feeling stuck with no a way forward. Dreaming of a car involved in an accident is understood to mean that you are in conflict with either yourself or with someone else, and you are heading towards a collision.
Alternatively, it can be a forewarning of a dramatic change that is about to happen in your life which will change your life.
Dream interpretation is not a science, multiple factors are taken into consideration before any reputable dream interpreter or analyst can give a reading. This is primarily because dreams are a reflection of the individual’s internal conflict, and everyone is different in this regard.
Therefore, even in attempting to decipher the spiritual meaning of a car in a dream, understanding the details in and of the dream will help to better understand the symbolism and meaning of the dream. Therefore, factors like the car colour, the life circumstances of the dreamer, and the car in the dream all affect how to interpret the dream for the dreamer.
