What it means: These dreams are the most disturbing of all because the grief we experience in the dream is very real. That being said, death dreams are actually about changes, endings and letting go. If you dream about someone you love dying, say your child for example, it’s not a warning of what is to come but rather a reflection of how you feel about a change he or she is going through. These dreams happen the most when our child has reached a milestone: being potty trained, learning to ride a bike, starting a new grade, etc. Through the dream we mourn the loss of that younger child we know and love so that we can embrace the older child that is emerging. Dreaming of your own death is also nothing to worry about. It indicates a change is happening in your own life and the old you is passing away. While death to the waking mind is the end of life, to the dreaming mind death is the end of life as you now know it.
4) Driving or riding an out-of-control vehicle
What it means: A vehicle in a dream represents your ability to be in control and to steer your life or a particular situation in the direction you want it to go. It is your drive and your motivation. It is your ability to move forward and progress. When you lose control of your dream vehicle then you have lost control of something in your waking life so ask yourself what in your life has gotten out of hand lately? What did you used to be in control of but now don’t seem to have a handle on it. What is causing you to feel directionless? This dream is often a warning from your wise subconscious that you need to put the brakes on some behavior is issue before it-or you-becomes a wreck. A lot of times this dream can be a warning that you are running yourself down and are headed for an energy crash if you don’t lighten your load.
