The engine is to the automobile as the heart is to your body. Oil is as to the automobile as blood is to your body. **Automobile (RE: Transportation): Automobiles are the representation of your physical experience in getting ahead, going places, doing things, situations, and your physical body; your physical experiences. Going up a steep hill or mountain means you are climbing to the top (success, happiness - whatever the top is to you). Is the road narrow and bumpy or it is nicely paved, and the ride a smooth one? The road condition shows your challenges by outside factors in getting to your destination; like other people’s attitudes, and things you will encounter. Do they appear to be helpful, beneficial or troublesome and harmful? Is someone else driving and in control of your situation? You may wish to remove them from your driver’s seat and take control of you and your existence or project, etc. Are there many people in your automobile (others attitudes you carry with you or others that depend on you or just go along with you). Take note of which the people with you represent. Are they women, men, children or a mixture? Are there any strong personalities - even weakness is a strong personality that stands out. Look at the surroundings to see what it is that is standing out and sending you a message. ... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

Example: My dream is of an eternal journey, which takes a road that turns into a circle or maze that is endless. Behind me is a large fat young man with blond hair. I can’t get along and he catches up with me, I say “We can’t go back we must struggle on.” He takes my wrist. I am trying to hide my fear of him and the pathway, when I wake up’ (JP). JP feels her life is something she must ‘struggle on’ with, but it is an endless circle of confusion in which she gets nowhere. This illustrates the road as a symbol of one’s approach to life. Perhaps it is her fear which creates this sense of life for her.

The person was quite disturbed by my independence. It made him or her feel uncertain to have their leader apparently questioned. I felt uncertain too for a moment. Then I walked on and came to an open stretch of ground’ (Tony C). Tony’s dream shows how roads can represent different sorts of social behaviour.

The condition of the street reflects how much control you have over the direction of your life. (If it’s rocky and uphill, you’re feeling a lack of control in your life; if the street is well-paved and easy to progress on, you are in control of your own destiny). Try to remember if there was a name on the street - analyzing the street name can offer some important significance or hints to the meaning of the dream.
To dream of alleys or side streets, suggests that you need to be less rebellious or adventurous for now, and return to more traditional ways. It may also suggest that you have been exploring (or want to explore) an alternative way of life. Curving or crooked streets foretell surprises and travel.
