In spiritual terms a gear signifies a change of consciousness. Moving up a gear suggests moving towards the spiritual and moving down, towards the physical or material.
Psychological / emotional perspective: Psychologically we sometimes need to change perspective. This can be seen as changing gear in a vehicle, to alert us to changes that need to be made.
Material aspects: In the vernacular, gear can represent both the paraphernalia associated with drug-taking and also clothes. We shall need to make some kind of link with the circumstances in our everyday lives.
For instance, if in the drug-taking ‘gear’ a component is missing, we may be creating difficulties for ourselves. Insofar as clothes are concerned, we probably need to act more appropriately.
1. Depending on what the gear is, one will want to engage in the activity it represents.
2. If gear is on a car, one will want to take a trip.
3. If putting a car in gear, one is going forward.
4. If putting car in reverse, one is militating against one’s own progress.
Dreams of a gear symbolize forward motion, and that you are moving ahead fast or slow, depending upon the gear you are in.
If you are in high gear, then you are making rapid progress.
If you are in a low gear, then you are moving slower and steadier, paying attention to the details, but not necessarily making great progress.
