Oil symbolizes your blood and circulatory system. Oil circulates around the engine of a car like blood circulates around your body. For example, to dream of a car engine leaking oil would indicate you are anemic (losing red blood cells).
An oil rig, oil well or oil tanker symbolizes that you are a hands-on healer. The huge quantity of oil is a great source of power. Like the oil tanker you have a source of power within you. This power can be channeled into others by placing your hands on the person and letting the energy flow. See the chapter on Spiritual Healing for more.
An olive, whether it is the food or a person’s name is a pun on “Oh Live” and is a request for you to do a mental check on your philosophy of life. The dream is asking you to accept life and drop any attitude such as, “Well if this is all life has to give I don’t really care if I live or die.”
The top of a bus represents the top of your body – your head / mind. An open top bus is asking you to open your mind to something new in your life. If you have recently ‘made up your mind’ about something, you are being asked to think again. If something has come your way and you are dismissing it, you are being asked to think differently. Rain coming into an open top bus asks you to open your mind to letting life in while on your journey.
Orange also has to do with assimilation of new ideas and can indicate a profound change in perspective is being attempted or required. The sacral chakra, which is located close to the stomach, is energized by this color and helps with assimilation / digestion of new ideas. When given good news, we can feel it here as butterflies in our stomach. When given overwhelmingly bad news, we feel it as if our stomach is in knots.
The sacral chakra feeds life sustaining energy to the digestive system so orange is also used in dreams to indicate digestive system trouble and to help heal it. A common theme is to dream of standing in line for an orange drink. The slow moving line indicates that your digestive system is slow moving and the orange drink symbolically heals this.
