Really Want/Need this interpritted!

Okay, this is the first dream I remember clearly in quite a while...and it disturbs me that THIS is the dream I'm remembering. I would really appreicate any help in interpretting this dream. Thanks... I was driving in my car with my dad in the passenger seat, my month old nephew in a carseat behind my dad, and my dog, Maggie, beside Gavin. I forget what caused it, but I had turned suddenly, and the back end of my car went off the edge of the road (we were relaly high up somewhere). The car started flipping as it fell completely over the edge. AS we were falling I was yelling for my dad to protect Gavin while I was trying to get a hold of Maggie. I remember all I kept praying was that the car landed up right, and it did. It landed on its wheels. Me and my dad got out of the car, I got Gavin out and Maggie jumped out too. We were all ok...oh so it seemed. We heard the cops coming, and I was talking with my dad (about what I forgot). Then, all of a sudden my dad said something to the effect of, "wait a minute. My bodies still in the car. I'm dead." Sure enough when I turned around to where my dad had been standing behind me, he was gone, but I could see him laying outside the car...I was so upset.(Me, Gavin and Maggie were all really okay though). This next part is kind of fuzzy, but I had to see what it would be like in my life a little bit after my dad had died. I remember how alone and helpless I felt in my dream. Compeletly Sick feeling. After I woke up for a split second, I wasn't sure whether it had been a dream or not...but thank god it was actually my dad who woke me up... I hate the fact that THIS is the dream I remember after so long of forgetting them...I just want to know why it had to be this one. This one, that still upsets me now, as I'm awake, typing this. When i think about this dream I do feel sick, and I know I'll remember it forever!

Personally, I don't think there's a lot to interpret here--what I mean is, that I think this is a pretty straightforward indication of your anxieties and worries. dr...

That does make sense. Of course losing my parents, nieces/nephew, pets, etc are always a worry of mine, no matter if it's in the back of my mind or not. Thank you David :)

Thank you. No problem--the thing about dream analysis--is that only we the experiencer (as if that's a word right?) and simultaneous subject of the dream--we are the only ones who can truly interpret our own dreams--it's coded by the symbols that we've created and that we understand. It's too easy for me to nonchalantly suggest that your dream is straight forward, when my dreams can involve all of the locations I've lived in in my entire life combined into one setting, trips through Hell (or pseudo-hells) encounters with withches, vampires, and on occasion, the devil himself, seminars at work, utter profundity and utter nonsense... (Shrug.) We must be our own interpreters.

this is actually a pretty normal dream compared to what they are usually like. I tend to have a lot of weird dreams! I've had a lot of characters in my dreams too. And in 99% of my dreams, someone/something is trying to catch/kill me lol. I hope those ones aren't straight forward! =P I've had Hannibal Lector in a dream (except he didn't eat people, 'just' killed them

Sounds like a fear of losing those you love. It could be from something you've seen lately or even from finding out someone is sick, etc. Those people in your car were all people/pets that mean the world to you. You protected all of them as best as you could but lost your dad, perhaps saying that you know you will have to let him go at some point in your life.

Well no one has become sick that I know, but of course that would make sense if they have. I defeniatly do care about everyone in that car. Of course I love my dad, my new baby nephew is already my life, and the dog that was with us is my favorite out of the 2 we have now. I defeniatly do fear the day that I will lose them. Hopely my nephew will out live me though! It would be compeletly unfair if he didn't.

Wow first i would like to say im sorry you had such an odd/horrible dream like that. second I think that in a sense it might be trying to mabye tell you to cherish the time you have with your father? not sure on that one ive never been good at these just a guess. as he was alive a sec then gone being here one second gone the next kind of thing. Don't know if you and your dad fight a lot (and i wont pry) but if you do it might be part of that, maybe telling you to try to not do it so much and show him how you love him. Cherish those moments in life you have with him because every second you have counts. Do things as a family (hence all of you in the car?) again a hunch dont know a lot. Try to do family oriented things and keep peace around the child and him and yourself. Again these are all just things coming to my mind and dont let them throw you way off track or anything but if they help let me know. My two cents, peace out and be safe. ~*~J_Dawgs~*~

I think this could make a lot of sense :) But, no me and my dad don't fight a lot. And I would like to be able to do more stuff with my family, but the hours I work make that difficult for me, and I end up being left out of things. I blame my work...lol. Thank you for the response

This is an important enough dream and it would be right for you to have it interpreted. Dreams are just us telling us of some important things that we may be neglecting. It is surely an important enough thing because the dream is very vivid and you remembered it. The feeling of being alone and extreme sadness are very important as well. I don't know what the dream signifies but it does tell me that you should cherish everything in your life, maybe your dad needs to be cherished a little more and appreciated just because he is your dad.

I experience that similar dreams many times and i felt the same way. It is so hard to imagine losing your loved one so I am doing my best to served them so that i will not feel regrets. I really don't want it to happen. About your dream i think it gives you a sign or maybe it will come in opposite. I am not an expert on dream, but keep on praying and loving your loved one, and stay with them, focused the rest of your time while they are still there.
