This is because the car generally represents your path in life in your dreams. When you are thinking about going anywhere or planning a trip, 99% of the time, unless you are an avid bus rider, that trip is going to involve a car. Even if you are taking a flight, you are going to need to get in a car in order to get to the airport. Whether it is a friend’s car you are using, a taxi, an airport shuttle, or your own sedan, cars run the world now and take you where you need to go. Because of the car’s importance in everyday routine, you associate this with yourself and with your own path. When your car is not able to get somewhere, you are not able to get there either, and thus you become intertwined with the fate of your car.
When you dream of a car out of control it means that something has occurred with has set you off of your usual path in life. You are no longer able to go the same way that you used to or cross the same paths that you used to, emotionally or physically, and this can end up presenting a big problem for you when you want to try to go places in the future. If there is nobody behind the wheel in your dream that you can pin this on, then it probably means something out of your control will cause you to run off the tracks. Don’t concentrate on preventing yourself from falling though, this could be inevitable. Instead, just try focusing on what you are going to do once it happens and how you plan on getting your life back on track.
If you dream that you are the one behind the wheel when the car goes out of control in your dreams then this usually means that you are inadvertently the one that is causing yourself to run off the tracks. You need to do everything within your power to prevent yourself from running off and destroying yourself. The last thing that you want to do is to hurt those around you by putting them or yourself in a terrible situation. Do not make any rash or uneducated decisions that you did not legitimately think through before you did them. This is the best advice that can be given in a situation like this.
To dream that someone else is behind the wheel when the car goes out of control means that this person is going to lead your life off track. While some changes can be pleasant ones and could potentially end up affecting you for the better, the most likely result in this case is it will only lead to heartache and pain. Don’t get too caught up in someone else’s desires for you or for your life. Make educated decisions and most importantly make sure not to let someone else run your life the way that you want to run it.
If you can’t control a car in your dreams this can have an important effect on your life, but only if you let it become a self fulfilling prophecy. This dream is not a warning of what is sure to come, it is a warning of what will come if you don’t change things so. You have the power to set yourself on the right path again and without using it, you are truly putting yourself on the road to loss.
