The meaning of backwards in dream | Dream Interpretation
xMoving backwards - on foot or in a train or car - may mean you are getting further away from your (true) goal. Perhaps you are too preoccupied with the past and its associated failures, rejections, guilt- feelings and resentments. As long as your present response to life is conditioned by traumatic events in the past, there is no possibility of either peace or personal fulfilment. Wounds inflicted by past experiences will heal only when you learn to live in the present, neither anxious about the future nor angry about something in the past.
To look back into the past can sometimes be detrimental, and at other times helpful. In dreams, to be looking or moving backwards may suggest that answers to our present dilemma lie in the past. Past behaviour patterns may not be appropriate.
Psychological / emotional perspective: When she looked backwards, despite being warned, lot’s wife was turned into a pillar of salt.
To be looking back in dreams suggests that mentally we are not using our best faculties or are not looking to the future.
Material aspects: To dream of going or walking backwards indicates that we may be withdrawing from a situation, or slow to learn from it. We may need to recognize that to continue in a particular situation will, at worst, stop our progress and, at best, impede it.
