I had a dream where I found a terrible accident which claimed several lives of people who had their parts of the bodies cut.
Only few were saved.
Later the cattarpillar crane came to rescue the people who were still alive.
Prayer points for the people around the globe
I dreamt that I was in 2 car accidents like 2-3 days apart from each other. We survived both of them. I was the passenger and the first driver was my boyfriend and the second one was with my cousin.
I’m not sure what caused us to crash but it was really scary when it was happening and surprisingly there was only minor damage to the car and us. After veering dangerously off the road and flipping like 10 times we landed right side up, off the side of the road like we intentionally parked there against a pond.
I remember watching the window shield and expecting it to break at any moment but it didn’t. Because if the window shield busted then that would mean the top was smashing in on itself and we wud too which wud obviously equal pain, vehicle damage, possibly death.I think the only thing that was wrong with both crashes is that it wouldn’t start because the bottom half got banged up.
In the second accident which was only days after the first one, my cousin came over to give a ride. We were driving then n somehow we slipped or something and I remember putting my hands up to brace myself and felt weirdly not as scared as the first crash. I think I even comforted her telling her something along the lines that everything is gonna be jus fine and that we’ll live. We also ended up flipping like 10 times as well. I remember feeling fear if the window shield busting because that would mean the top was smashing in on itself and we wud too which wud obviously equal pain, vehicle damage, possibly death. But other than that it felt like time slowed down because I remember wondering telling myself that it’s gonna be over before you knew it, while watching all contents tumble loosely all over with ever roll we did.
I can see my cousin freaking out but when I told her we’re going to be just fine and that everything was ok, somehow I calmed her down or something.
When we landed we landed right side as well, in a parking position literally jus around the corner from where my boyfriend’s vehicle crash landed. I told her that she doesn’t need to feel like that, because that was my second one in like a week. And when we walked by it I pointed it out to her. I kinda giggled and told her how we weirdly landed in a parking position with hardly any damages too. But then I don’t remember anything after that. I think that’s when I probably woke up. I remember the season being early fall or something here in Alaska, but it is winter out now. Does that have anything to do with it?
So there with so much detail it’s kind of hard to put into words right now because this is just going to turn out to be really long anyways. I don’t know what to think about that, any ideas? I haven’t found anything about 2 crashes in one dream yet.
Anyways thank you and good night.
I dream about I’m in the left side of the highway and I had 3 companion one of them is my sister I don’t know the 2 and the red van drifting through us and closely hit by it because they hit the break and I panicked when he Almost hit my sister and we’re fine and where laughing and the second I’m in the road by myself and I saw my sister died by passing by the bus and I cry so much and I see the driver sitting on the courts and I punch him in the face while crying
Then he said the sunset is their reason why my sister died and I woke up crying
I had a dream my cousin brother was driving ,me and my other sibling was in the car but it seemed like he wasn’t used to drive the new car.So we reached this other place he saw someone he knew then i got out to walk saying you’ll catch up with me and left the others in the car.When i was coming back to where i left them with the car i saw my aunt saying my siblings were involved in a car accident but when we went to where the accident occured we saw the car in a sort like a bridge or a trench with it’s frontline on the trench but my siblings were fine I don’t know how the got out because i wasn’t there when it happened.I don’t understand this dream what it means please help
i dreamt that i told my sister she can drive my car i am the passenger , when we came to a turn she lost contol, so i flew out of my car made a flip and landed on my feet , my car was smashed to the ground and my sister is lying under it but still alive.
Just a tip (which you can take or leave), they say; “don’t bite the hand that feeds”.
I had a dream where I was in the backseat of a car and my boyfriend was in the front passenger seat and his friend was driving. we were on the motorway and His friend starts speeding and I mean (120MPH). My boyfriend starts saying “faster faster” and I am saying “ no slow down it’s too fast” at this point I’m really scared. His friend then takes an exit (kind of like a slip road) and somehow he ends up losing control of the vehicle and crashes into some sort of abandoned building? It looked like an old garage repairs building. I remember through the windshield) and I had so many injuries (severe ones) and I was walking towards the car (car was outside and crashed into the metal garage door) to see the damage and the whole car was just completely destroyed. Strangely, I didn’t see my boyfriends friend at all and my boyfriend was standing next to the car but did not seem to acknowledge me either. He shown no concern whatsoever he just looked at me, it’s almost as if I was never physically there in front of him. I feel like this dream was an important warning I’m just not so sure of what?
A few months ago, I had another dream like this where I was in the front passenger seat this time and my boyfriend was the one driving and his GPS took him to some wrong route and we ended up somehow driving on train tracks? It was a bridge though, and he lost control and we ended up falling from the bridge. The car was falling and it hit the hard shoulder of a motorway but it kept rolling and rolling and rolling at immense speed. To sum it up I climbed out of the car okay, there was ambulance already there and I was badly injured I had a broken arm, and my partner wasn’t injured he was perfectly fine? You’d expect he would be hospitalised but nope. The car was also completely mashed up ruined. This time my boyfriend acknowledged me more but didn’t show any form of affection?
Me and my partner do have a few arguments and I often feel unheard and I feel he doesn’t really care about what he says to me. So it could be that coming from my unconscious feelings? Or perhaps it’s a deeper message if anyone can advise?
Recently i’ve had like 4? of these dreams which is odd since normally i only have 1 dream every few months on average (so i know this is important to my Psyche). The dream is usually the same; Mu mom is driving and i’m in the passenger seat. we’re usually on some sort of bridge that rides above a road below (in some we’re on a circle ramp where a road crosses under it or something. The key point is that there is a road under the bridge or ramp. My mom seemingly without realizing drives off the bridge or ramp (note there are never any guard rails) somehow we land completely safely on the road below. (Also note sometimes we’re in a call with my sister).
I think the meaning is that my mom is doing things she think will help me but they are “driving” me off of the course/path i chose, onto a different one. The car being undamaged could signify that i can adapt to these changes but they’re still out of my control. I have no idea what the call with my sister could mean, maybe advice? idk.
