Dream Interpretation: Backseat Driving


I'm riding on a bus, on my way to see someone who I care about deeply.  I have a steering wheel at my seat, and am trying to drive, but the bus keeps veering off course. It's terrifying- the bus is weaving in and out of lanes, and I'm trying to get it under control. 

Finally, I look near the front of the bus, and see that there's a driver up there. I realize that my steering is interfering with his driving, and I stop trying to steer. The bus driver gets the bus under control, and we ride smoothly to our destination.


As you can probably tell, the dream is pointing out a situation in your life where someone else is in charge, but you keep trying to take control! Since you are going to see someone important to you, this dream deals with something or someone who you care very much about. The person in charge could be the person you are going to see, or perhaps this dream relates to an area of your life that this person represents for you.

An alternate interpretation is that this is is about an area of your life where how things happen isn't really up to you- more a matter of fate, or happenstance.

When the bus was veering out of control, you felt scared. It's definitely scary to feel like things are out of your control. You then try your best to get things back on track, which only makes things worse! It takes faith and trust to let someone else be in charge, which you find, and things then go smoothly. Help this situation along by just relaxing and letting the person, or fate, do it's thing - anyone who's ever had a backseat driver knows that it makes getting where you're going harder, instead of easier.

Remember how safe and comforting it felt to fall asleep in the backseat of the car with your parents driving? You knew they'd get you home, and you didn't have to worry about anything- they took care of it. It sounds like you can trust this person, or fate, to get you where you are going, so sit back, let the driver drive, and enjoy the ride!
