What are you Dreaming?

“To dream that you forget or can't find where you parked your car indicates that you are dissatisfied or unhappy with an aspect of your waking life. You do not know what you really want to do with your life or where you want to go. ... If you have unfulfilled dreams, go for it.”

In a general sense, dreams about our own cars say something about the driving forces in our lives or about the manner in which we move forward in time. By this, I mean car dreams are a symbolic image for how we carry ourselves through life.

Despite what some people like to think, we are not completely conscious of what drives us; some things are below the threshold of our awareness.

If losing your car is a recurring dream theme, then that says something about the manner in which you carry yourself through life. The emotion of the dream is frustration. So you have to ask, where in your life do you feel frustrated?

If you say that you do not feel this frustration in life, then the dream says, something in you is frustrated about not being able to move. This latter case is what Jung called an unconscious conflict. When we don’t make ourselves conscious of that kind of thing, then it will play out in our lives as Fate.” (Above from Quora.Com)

In my work with those finessing “life art” or the “art of life,” one of the practices we use is to journal our dreams. At first, it seems disruptive…to wake in the night/early hours to become somewhat alert and write down what you can capture. But actually, the outcome is quite restful as one’s unconscious is allowed voice, space and breath.
