“I had a dream I was riding an old bike!” A bike in a dream is symbolic of the self. A bike is used as a method of transportation that requires skill and balance to operate. It can be old or new, broken down or operating perfectly. This is the same for a person. The bike is a dream symbol of the body, or the perception of the self in a given situation.
Do you feel the exhilaration or freedom, with the wind behind you as cycle down the road? This indicates that you are happy with your circumstance. You are following your highest bliss and are moving confidently towards the future. If you find yourself riding forward but are looking back, you are caught up in the past. If you don’t pay attention for too long you will usually wreck. The message here is: Focus on where you are going and not where you have been.
The Condition of the Bike is Important
What is the condition of your bike? Is this the bike you always wanted or one you have had for a long time? A new bike indicates a new circumstance. If it shines in the sun or is pleasing to the eye, the opportunity is a hopeful and a positive one. If you climb onto the bike with confidence you are certain of your success in your new venture.
An old bike can be your aging body or a longstanding situation. Perhaps you need to take care of your health and start exercising. Do you still enjoy a ride on your old bike or do you look at it with disdain? How well do you ride? A nice enjoyable ride on an older, reliable bike means you are doing well physically and you are happy with yourself. Age is only a number. A broken down bike can indicate several things. Maybe, it’s time to get a new one. Are the bikes’ tires flat or has the chain has come off? This can be for whatever situation, whether it is a relationship, work or your physical health. Is the old bike is serving you well? Great. If not, fix it.
Are you Struggling with the Bike Ride?
Feeling the strenuous exertion of riding uphill or against the wind can indicate that you have to work hard either at a job or in a current situation such as a relationship. Is the hilltop in sight? This would mean your struggle is almost over. Or are you simply pedaling with no vision of the top of the hill? This indicates that the struggle you are experiencing has no sign of letting up in the near future. Speeding down the hill at top speed indicates an acceleration of a situation and an increase in freedom or money. If you feel out of control, watch your spending, you don’t want to crash.
To dream that you want to take a bike ride, means you want to have some time for yourself. Consider your daily life. How can you give yourself a little bit of solace?
To dream your bike is stolen, can be a premonition of someone stealing your bike! It can also mean part of your enjoyment in life has been taken or wasted either by you or someone else. What do you feel you have lost? How do you get it back? The message: Always take care of your bike.
