I dreamt that I woke up on a strange room . I went to get in my car and it would nt start. I didn’t know what was wrong. Then I noticed there was only the cab of my van left. Just a shell of the cab area.
I went back to the room. Which was weird and a handicapped lad and his carer were in there.
I went back out and saw two workers from my last job walk straight past me and not notice me. I thought, Ami dead. I tried to put my arm through a venerate pillar but I couldn’t.
I saw some railway tracks I think. I was guessing a train may have cut my car into pieces. In the room was a small container, like a lunch box with my things inside it.
My dream last night is really clear .. im on the passenger sit and I can’t see who’s the driver was, but in there we act as lovers .. crossing into narrow road, there’s a new neon green car that has a male driver and son on his passenger seat. There’s a car that parking beside. As we are crossing, the neon car is kinda lose control like he’s a new driver and hit the car beside and after that he continue to drive and hit the car we’re in. By that I told to my partner to back up and change the route. Then as we are backing up, there a silver car crossing and bump to neon car. The neon car still keep pushing to cross over that’s why he drives crazily even hitting the silver car just to pass through.
It got been crazy as we back up we just circling the place then the other side was old building with wood crosses like a cemetery, and 3 dolls.. we stop over there and I pick 3 dolls and that’s creep me out so I decided to leave the dolls, looking back, the road already break giving straight hole to make the road having like a cliff view. So after that we are on our way moving forward, reaching the spot the accident, its because the other side of the narrow road is the place we need to go and that is a flower shop but more on house plants. So both cars are already pull over, then we asked the people, and accdg. to them the neon car driver was telling to them that it’s our fault as we hit them.. but my dream cut off to that telling I’m willing to face the driver even to court as I know I didn’t do wrong.
I dream seeing two cars crushing in corner people died.
Last night I dreamt of the guy I recently broke up with because somethings just never changed in the time being together, and now we are somewhat trying to fix things to eventually get back together. In the dream we were in my home town with some friends and family at an event but leaving the event he brought up an argument or just something he didn’t like and when I opened my mouth to speak he swerved off the road, and what it seemed to be him trying to kill or harm both us or just me. I’m not really sure if it was more targeted on my side of the car but it was intentional. reading this article above makes me see the meaning behind my dream, he has control of my life, I can’t do a lot of things because I’m not allowed to but he can do all those things.
In my dream I was driving through a familiar intersection with my sister in the passengers seat. Somehow I ran over a person who was still attached to my car, but visibly deceased. My sister said don’t stop or report this as she’s dead and we can call the authorities later. She insisted that we continued our journey and go shopping as planned.
I was very distressed and after shopping I said I must phone and report this
I was stressed out and she just kept telling me to say I was scared and can’t remember anything, just can’t remember. That I must repeat this over and over.
In waking life we have become estranged as my sister betrayed me and involved herself in my marriage dissolution and Court proceedings, for reasons completely unknown to me, she supported my divide and conquer devious ex husband .
She flatly refuses to tell me why she did this and it is still a complete mystery to me as we were previously very close. She was my big sister and I had trusted her.
i dream about seeng a white van car that the driver is out of control and tha van is falling down into the hills many passenger is on that van including my son,,, what is the meaning of this dream.
I dream that my brother who has been dead for over 15 years, he was driving. I was in the backseat talking to his son whom I didn’t know he had. When I looked up I noticed he was driving crazy and we were driving into oncoming traffic. He caused a major head on accident with semi trucks. I only had a few bruises, my brother was in critical condition where he was dying. I was in a car park slanted on a hill. I called my boyfriend told him what happen he rush over, the lady at desk said we had to rush him to Dallas. I’m screaming I need to get to him, then I said I need a plane, someone yell you can take the jet. Then I woke up out of my dream, I know it’s weird. Do any one know maybe what that means??
Last night I had a dream that I got out of a class. I was walking to car parking location at some place in India, seemed like a day time busy place like a vegetable market sort of. it was dark then. As I was walking by to my car there was taxi driver shouting my name looking for me, suggesting that I might have booked a taxi to take me home. I did not respond to it, thinking I must be crazy to book a taxi while I have a car. So I got into my car without responding to the taxi driver, who then stopped the taxi next to my car and keep shouting my name to look for the person who booked the taxi.
I turned the car on, it seemed like a huge car like GMC Taho, I do not drive such car in the real life.
As I backed the car the taxi driver thought it was me who he was looking so he stated shouting at me thinking I booked him and running away. In this distraction as I was backing someone come under my car. The person head completely crushed. Some people gathered but no one expect the taxi driver said anything. The taxi driver said see you were saving some money and now you have deal with this. He left the scene. I called my brother who is a cop to told him what happened. Later, I was there till early morning and no one showed up. No police nothing. Later, I saw the body was not there. The car was facing the road as if nothing happened, I was scratching my head trying to understand how and what happened, while people started coming to the market place and doing what they do daily, not even aware what I went through the whole night.
I am not sure if this has any meaning. Seems like a movie story. But if you think it has a meaning please do tell.
i was deeply asleep and i was tired for no reason. and all i remember was i was in a car in the back seat with my mom, and someone cut us off and we lost control and the whole back of the car completely crushed like if it was real id be dead. and then my MMA teacher had showed up, and that’s all i rembeer
I just had one where I pulled over on a road I know isn’t a subdivision after the lights go extremely dim. I go to check something, black out, then wake up somewhere completely different with some people and dogs looking over the aftermath of a huge accident. My vehicle(inside looks different) is totaled. 2 other vehicles involved. I find my sister and my niece in their car, but the car starts moving by itself in reverse, I hit the brakes but they do nothing then a car driven by dogs hits us, no damage to either vehicle.
With I knew what it meant but I guess it’s a combination of things idk
i woke up from a dream 10 minutes ago of my boyfriend and his mum getting into a fatal car accident. in the dream i saw it and i rushed over. his mum wasnt breathing and it upset me. but my boyfriends body wasnt there in the car? it doesnt add up to me. his body should of been there but it wasnt. after i went looking for it but i ended up waking up before i did. did he survive and get out? because before the car accident. the dream was so unrealistic you’d laugh. but it was also pretty sad; before the car accident happened and i saw it. i was getting bullied and someone like. tried hitting me with their car? and i went flying but landed safely on the floor. in front of my boyfriend and his mums car who were sitting in it at the time. i waved at them and gave them a friendly smile. i dont know what this means. idk if uts bad. and if i should be worried. but i read the fatal car accident meaning above and its inaccurate because i love him and he loves me and i know he does because he shows it everyday and i just know. and i love him i literally woke up crying from this dream and spammed him because of it.
