Life is a journey. We all seem to naturally view it as such. Just think of all the journey-infused metaphors we use when talking about our lives: “We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it,” “I’m really at a cross-roads right now,” “Our relationship has hit a road block,” and “I’m ready to take my life in a different direction,” just to name a few. With this collective perspective of traveling through life, it is only fitting that our dreams would place us in a myriad of travel-related adventures.
In the literal world, there are many physical paths on which to travel, such as road, sea, air, and track. In the figurative world, there are many life paths to travel: career paths, relationship paths and spiritual paths, for example. And in the dream world, each type of path you may find yourself on, as well as each type of vehicle you may find yourself in, is not only related to your various life paths but will also give great insight into how successfully or how poorly you are navigating these paths. In other words, the path, whether it be the road, air or water, is the particular path you have chosen; the vehicle is your ability to travel that path.
For example, spaceships, UFOs, rockets, space shuttles, all these vehicles are capable of traveling not only high into the sky but beyond this world, so when they travel into our dreams they represent our extreme high hopes of being able to travel above and beyond our personal world as we now know it.
A great example of such a dream came from radio personality Mike Calta, who can be heard on 102.5 The Bone here in Tampa, FL. I was on his show back in April of ’09 when he relayed an interesting dream he had about the space shuttle…
A syndication deal would certainly transport Mike to another world as far as his career path goes. But unfortunately, as his dream suggests, he’s had to suffer let down after let down. What the dream is also showing him is that the let downs and set backs are not of his own doing but of his company, because he was being towed by the Space Shuttle (his company), he wasn’t piloting it. The good news is that since this dream, The Bone has gone all talk, giving Mike a much greater platform to display his talents. The Mike Calta Show is now the most listened to afternoon show in Tampa Bay!

“Your books have been a life saver for me! Being able to understand my dreams has helped me to turn my marriage around because they were showing me what I have been doing to make our situation worse. Wow. It’s unbelievable how helpful my dreams have been to me. I can not thank you enough.” – Tammy, Flagstaff, AZ
