Advice to change one’s course of action
Depth Psychology: Are you making things too complicated? You alone are responsible for the difficulties you have in reaching your goal. Are you too inflexible?
Pursue goals more directly, or a detour is necessary.
The detour may represent the quickest road to your goal. (The Chinese say, “If you want to make haste, make a detour.”)
To see a detour in your dream, signifies that you have encountered an obstacle in some aspect of your life. You may not want to confront something directly and thus must try to find a way around it.
1. Obstacles require an alternate route to established destinations—possibly in business, usually in personal goals.
2. A new path is necessary to the usual place—likely emotionally, often in relationships.
Dreams of a detour symbolize that an unexpected change is forth coming. Perhaps you are releasing feelings of frustration at thinking you were on a direct path from A to B. Keep in mind that this change/detour is part of your path, and that the more you embrace life’s journey with a flexible and adventurous spirit, the more you will reap the rewards of success and joy along your path.
