Chrysler 300 Dashboard - 1955

In this dream I am driving a car along a scenic mountain highway, with rising cliffs to my right, and a deep ravine with a river flowing at my left. I call over to the driver in the next lane over, and say, with my voice full of swagger: “Guess what? I’m driving without my GPS this time!” And just as I shout these words, the road tilts so it is practically vertical; my car starts to slide toward the deep ravine below. I struggle to right the car, manage to get back on the road, and wind up dead-ended at a ferry dock with no boats.

In waking life, I often say that the dream is like each person’s internal GPS. They are our own impeccable technology that can guide us to our best future – that is – if we choose to listen.

This dream, I knew on waking, was a warning and a reminder to me. There have certainly been times when I have decided to live my life without consulting my internal GPS. In these cases I decided to forgo the sage advice of my dreams and intuitions. Guess what? It never turns out too well.

When I drive my car to new destinations in waking life, it is sometimes fun to turn off the GPS on my dashboard and read a map instead. But when I steer through life itself, I am happy for the reminder to consult the GPS of my dreams and intuition. Things just seem to go better when I do.


Have you consulted your internal GPS lately?
