Hi Debbie. Thanks for posting your dream. Sorry I didn't get to it right away. A transformer exploded in the neighborhood and took out the electricity. It was like Armageddon for tech addicts like my family. My husband runs an IT business from the house and also has a reef tank that depends on lights and power heads to create "tides."
Anyway, here is what I can share with you:
It is my feeling that this dream reflects *your* feelings about your boyfriend's situation before, during and after his transition into the spirit world. That is why you have your own ideas about what the dream means. Here is my opinion though, based on what was going on in your boyfriend's life at the time. As you know symbols are so personal and contextual. Each symbol varies in meaning from dream to dream.
Anyway, let's look at the symbols:
snow: can mean all types of things including purity, etc. but in this case, it more likely symbolizes a time of an emotional 'freezing.' People freeze their emotions when facing a frightening future. It can symbolize one's feeling alone.
car: a mode of transportation so it tends to symbolize our life journey
driveway: a driveway is a point of departure or arrival. But arrival "home" tends to represent "coming home" or even death.
away from parents' house: departing from his family
toward his own: he is moving toward his own destiny
difficulty in driving: not an easy trip
wobbly tire in danger of causing problems: feelings about his past is affecting his ability to move on smoothly. Maybe he reminiscing and feels wistful about leaving earth. But three tires are okay; just one is wobbly. This signifies that he is mostly okay but there is some reservations about his leaving.
car flipped over: this is an event that causes a sudden inability to proceed
concerned but not panicked: you witness his struggles but you know all will be okay because you know that despite this, he was prepared
he pops out and is fine: he rises above this situation
car ends up in garage: his earth journey had ended safely
he is happy: he really is fine on the other side
To me, this is how you saw him go through his transition.
I'm so sorry for your loss, Debbie. I am so so sad that you and he are separated in this physical realm. Please know (and I know you do) that he is nearby quite often as he still loves you and looks out for you. And, just as your dream revealed, he truly is happy being home again.
I know that you sense when he is around and talk to him. He likes that.
