Those dreams of driving blind are helping me to see…
In the dreams…
…I’m always driving late at night and can’t see where I’m going.
Maybe my headlights are too dim. Or the windows have fogged up. Or the streetlights are all out.
I’ve never wrecked in any of these dreams. Partly due to my caution, but also partly due to luck…
…as in this dream:
I’ve reached the end of a city street and must turn.
Though I can barely see, I manage to make a left turn, then ease the car to the side of the road.
However, as I park, I must guess where the street ends and the curb begins—hopefully the car is completely out of the traffic lane.
Ironic, yes: through this dream, I saw I was having trouble seeing my way.
But though the message would seem to be very negative…
…as I considered the dream, I found some positives:
For one thing, I’m smart enough to stop until I can see better.
Yes, my safe passage is partly due to luck—a car could’ve hit me as I turned. However, I didn’t press my luck; I didn’t try to keep going. So maybe the message is: as long as I use good sense, luck will be on my side.
Another irony: though I can’t see, I do know where I’m going and how to get there—that’s typical of these dreams.
This dream motif hasn’t appeared lately, so perhaps I’m brighter these days.
However, I know it’ll likely return…
…to help me see when my lights have dimmed.
