  1. Hi. In my dream everything was calmed I felt happy , everything looked brand new and clean my son looked clean and like he just showered his hair was very shiny, he was walking with his shoes on his hand his feet were very clean and he started walking on grass (astro turf) he was walking like as he had no worries he looked happy. My youngest son was in the dream too.

  2. There were three of us ladies in the car. The driving instructor got out of the driving seat, so I naturally assumed it was my turn. I started to remove my zippered summer fleece and generally gear myself up for my go, when the instructor without a by or leave, like she’d suddenly gone bonkers, put the car into auto-pilot. iwas momentarily intrigued, becos it didn’t look modern enough to be tht type of car. Then the instructor starts haranguing and harassing the other trainee who was ensconced in the front passenger seat. She was upbraiding the lady for not buying enough lessons from her. I felt really uncomfortable and sorry for the lady. And I also thought there was something that I wasn’t aware of about this interaction, like I wasn’t being told the full story. I was just peed off coz iwas missing my go, and I’d been still was really looking forward towards it.

      Your dream is a signal of humiliation. Be a little preserved in your dealings with others. Also, don’t be too trusting. Avoid rendering unsolicited opinions. You will be alright.
