Common Dreams Car

When dreaming, various modes of transport can feature as a symbol—planes, trains, buses, vans, cars, bikes. Generally a vehicle will represent your journey and progress in life. The size and shape of the vehicle may indicate your capacity or function.

You may dream of a car overheating which may imply you are stressed and burned out. It could be a passenger plane taking off which may refer to a project or business enterprise about to be launched. Perhaps you’re in a boat heading towards a large wave, saying, “I’ve got to get over this, I have to get over this.” Such a dream may indicate the need to move on from your past. The wave may represent a sizeable problem you are confronted with, a disappointment, a broken relationship or business deal gone wrong—all scenarios that you might wish to ‘get over’.

To dream of a boat may represent your calling and capacity. A large boat may be indicative of a large ministry, business or project. The condition of the water may reflect your emotional response to the circumstances taking place in your life.


  • Missed the boat
    A dream where you miss the boat may indicate a lost opportunity or anxiety about being too slow to act, or taking too much time to arrive at an answer.
  • Sinking boat
    You may be overwhelmed with problems in your day-to-day life. That ‘sinking feeling’ might be the awkward moment when you realise something unpleasant has happened or is about to happen.
  • Rocking Boat
    Such a dream could be a pun for ‘don’t rock the boat’. This could suggest we need to avoid ‘making waves’, saying or doing something, which may upset or cause problems. A rocking boat can also imply a sense of emotional and mental instability. 

Life Application

Life is a journey and not a destination. It comes with the gifts and talents uniquely tailored for your personality and path of life. Your journey/road will have its ups and downs, heartaches and celebrations. The path will not always be smooth but throughout your life you will encounter opportunities as well as challenges.

Like a seed, you have the privilege of cultivating, watering and nurturing your potential.

 Spanish composer-cellist, Pablo Casals, understood the need to keep growing. He was in his final years when a young reporter asked him, “Mr. Casals, you are 95 years old and the greatest cellist that ever lived. Why do you still practice six hours a day?” Casals’ answer: “Because I think I’m making progress.”

As stated above, life is a journey and not a destination, so keep growing, keep learning, keep practising, keep giving. Do this and you will live a satisfied and fulfilled life.

“Stop watering things that were never meant to grow in your life.
Stop wasting water on dead issues, dead relationships, dead people, a dead past.
No matter how much you water concrete, you can’t grow a garden”
