Dream 425: What does driving your car from the back seat mean in a dream?
A woman dreamed that you was trying to drive her car from the back seat. She wondered what this meant.
The question I would have for her is the following:
“Are you being a “backseat driver” in some areas of your life rather than fully owning it by taking the driver’s seat and boldly and openly taking responsibility of being the driver and steering your life where you want and need to go?”
It would seem that her subconscious might be saying that she needs to be more directly involved in guiding her own life rather than trying to direct it by being once removed into the backseat. I think her subconscious might be trying to move her to a better place in life where she can more directly guide it without being hampered.
She may want to move towards a perspective where she can put the brakes on her life and/or hit the gas when she needs to. When I think of it, driving from the back seat could be dangerous. I mean one cannot protect yourself either by wearing a seatbelt and airbags would do less good or no good when being in the disadvantageous position of a backseat driver.
This is said without knowing what the issues are, and I would expect future dreams to provide more information about what is happening and what issues need to be more directly addressed.
