This week’s question comes from Catherine who wishes to have her dream analyzed.
I dreamt that I was effortlessly and powerfully driving a yellow car slightly up at a powerful speed. Then skiing down a hill by former family home where my deceased parents warmly greeted me. My mother was looking out the bedroom window smiling and my father offered me support by throwing his fist up in the air. They also had an infant in the bed with them.
Thanks for sharing your dream with me. Dreams are symbols and are rarely taken literally. Lets break it down and see what this represents. I like to use a dream dictionary. In this instance I will be using dreammoods.com. They are a great source of information.
The color yellow has both positive and negative connotations. If the dream is a
pleasant one, then the color yellow is symbolic of intellect, energy, agility,
happiness, harmony, and wisdom. On the other hand, if the dream is an unpleasant one, then the color represents deceit, disgrace, betrayal, cowardice and sickness. You have a fear or an inability to make a decision or to take action.
Your desire to please others is at the risk of sacrificing your own needs and
happiness. As a result, you are experiencing many setbacks.
To dream that you are driving a car denotes your ambition, your drive and your
ability to navigate from one stage of your life to another. Consider how smooth
or rough the car ride is. If you are driving the car, then you are taking an
active role in the way your life is going. However, if you are the passenger,
then you are taking a passive role. If you are in the backseat of the car, then
it indicates that you are putting yourself down and are allowing others to take
over. This may be a result of low self-esteem or low self-confidence. Overall,
this dream symbol is an indication of your dependence and degree of control you
have on your life. To buy a car in your dream refers to your commitment to some
important life decision you have made
To see your parents in your dream symbolize both power, shelter, and love. You may be expressing your concerns and worries about your own parents. Alternatively, it represents the merging of the female and male aspects of your character. The dream may also be a pun on the completion of a project and “putting it to bed.” Consider the condition of the bed. If the bed is made, then it symbolizes security. If the bed is unmade, then it indicates that certain secrets will soon be exposed or revealed.Or that you are exhibiting some carelessness in your

To see a baby in your dream signifies innocence, warmth and new beginnings. Babies symbolize something in your own inner nature that is pure, vulnerable, helpless and/or uncorrupted. If you dream that the baby is smiling at you, then it
suggests that you are experiencing pure joy. You do not ask for much to make you happy. If you find a baby in your dream, then it suggests that you have
acknowledged your hidden potential.
To dream that you are climbing a hill signifies your struggles in achieving a goal. You need to focus your energies on the prize. To dream that you are standing on top of a hill suggests that you have succeeded in your endeavors. You have the necessary resources to complete the task at hand.
This is an encouraging dream. Your family is cheering you on. They stand behind you with love and pride. They baby represents something new in your life. The yellow car is a sign that your energy and efforts are moving you in the right direction. It seems as though your journey has not always been easy, but you’re over the uphill climb.
Keeping a dream journal is a great way to track your dreams. Write them down as soon as possible. As the day goes on, the details sometimes fade. Use a dream dictionary. Finally, put it all together.
