I had a brief dream on the morning of 6/20/14. I’m working as a city bus driver, but there are never any passengers on my bus. One day I drive the empty bus to a department store and purchase a bottle of perfume that I’d wanted for a while. I quickly make the purchase and anxiously run back to the bus. When I reach the bus my dream ends.
Dreaming of a bus driver indicates leadership in some group idea or plan. It is symbolic of collective power. Alternatively, it suggests that you are going around in circles and have showed little progress. Dreaming that you are a bus driver, suggests that you are moving forward quickly. You need to show more patience and less force. In particular, if you are a school bus driver, then it means that through knowledge and learning you will advance rapidly in life. Your dream may be connected with a new learning situation.
Dreaming that you are a passenger, suggests that you are not in control of your life and are letting others decide for you. Seeing other passengers means, that you are spending too much energy pleasing others. You may feel that others are leeching on you.
The grocery store is a place of necessity, compared to the department store of diversity and choices. To dream of being in a grocery store may be to dream of acquiring sufficiency for one’s needs. What is important is to look at whether or not the grocery is a good option for acquiring what is needed. Does the grocery store fit your needs, or do you really need auto parts or some non-food item? This may indicate that you are looking in the wrong place for answers in your waking life. Do your fellow shoppers seem at ease or harried, and is there a sense that there “isn’t enough to go around?” This may indicate anxiety over finding a mate, locating the right job, or some other limited commodity in the waking life.
Dreaming that you are spraying or wearing perfume, suggests that you are seeking for more pleasure in your life. It is symbolic of your sexuality, sensuality, and indulgence. Dreaming that you are buying something, means that your financial situation will improve.
Dreaming that you are running away from someone indicates an issue that you are trying to avoid. You are not taking or accepting responsibility for your actions. In particular, if you are running from an attacker or any danger, then it suggests that you are not facing and confronting your fears. Dreaming that you are trying to run but cannot make your feet move as fast as you want them to means lack of self-esteem and self-confidence. It may also reflect your actual state of REM paralysis while in the dream state. Dreaming that you are running alone means that you will advance to a higher position and surpass your friends in the race for wealth. Alternatively, you may be running from some situation or from temptation. Dreaming that you are running with others means festive and prosperous times.
When you dream of anxiety, it might be a reflection of a real anxiety in your own life. You might be conscious of your state or your suffering might be repressed in your inner self.
