Last night I had a very vivid dream in which I was driving along a narrow country road in the dark of winter. It was a lonely road and I wasn’t sure where I was going. After a while I felt sure that I had gone the wrong way and should be on a different road, so I turned my car around.

When I woke up, it felt like my subconscious mind had sent me some kind of message about changing direction, but it wasn’t entirely clear. I didn’t know whether the dream was telling me that it’s time to change something I am doing in the present, or whether it was reflecting anxiety about possibly making a wrong choice in the future. So I decided to turn it into a blog post and ask for suggestions in the comments.

Readers, have you ever had a wrong-way dream, and what did you feel that it was telling you? How did things turn out afterward? Did you realize that you had made a wrong choice somewhere and then make a change of direction in your real life? Or did you decide that you’d had the dream because of worrying about a future choice you would have to make?


  1. OH I am a huge believer in dreams!! I have a book full of dreams I have had and the meanings behind them. Yes I have my share of plain silly dreams to. I do believe this was trying to tell you something and I will explain tomorrow, sorry to keep you hanging, but was just ready to hit the hay. Will be thinking more clearly tomorrow 🙂 Sweet dreams! 🙂

  2. I’ve never had a dream like that, but I’d probably think it was me worrying about some future choice. Or it could be a smaller thing where the choice was not ideal…

    • Thanks Tiny… I’m guessing that it had to do with taking better care of my health, as that was what I’d been thinking about before I went to bed. There’s always room for improvement in making healthier choices!
