In the dream, I was driving my little red car down a driveway but the car in front of me had stopped. I kept driving forward at a slow pace and bumped into the car. No one was hurt but there was damage to my bumper. I saw there was ice on the cement but none directly under my tires. I figured insurance would sting me badly for this. I am so glad that was a dream and not real life.
What can be done with this dream is that I can first realize that it is great I was driving my own car. In a dream that signals independence and the ability to plan out a route and get to where you want to go.
To be driving too quickly and not respond to someone who has stopped is a good metaphor for what it is like when you are trying to get somewhere and things get in the way.
Sometimes the things which get in the way are meant to be overcome and pushed through but other times, like in this dream, the thing in the way needs to be respected and my driving changed accordingly.
The dream is a reminder to slow down, to be aware of my present surroundings, and to even stop if necessary.
There are a few areas in my life right now where this message could apply so I will think on that and consider some ways in which I can slow down to accommodate traffic on the path.
