To dream that you are in a car crash, indicates that your beliefs, lifestyle, or goals are clashing with another's. It may also represent a shocking situation or painful experience. Alternatively, car crashes may forewarn of your dangerous or careless driving habits. To dream that a plane crashes, signifies that you have set overly high and unrealistic goals for yourself and are in danger of having it come crashing down. Alternatively, your lack of confidence, self-defeating attitude and self-doubt toward the goals you have set for yourself is represented by the crashing airplane; you do not believe in your ability to attain those goals. Loss of power and uncertainty in achieving your goals are also signified.Waterloo, a habit, accident, acquired tolerance, acute alcoholism, addictedness, addiction, alcoholism, amphetamine withdrawal symptoms, appulse, atomize, awake the dead, bang, bang into, bankruptcy, barbiturate addiction, barbiturism, barge in, be poised, be ruined, bear market, bearish market, beating, become insolvent, billow, blast, blast the ear, blow, boom, bouncing check, break, break in, break in upon, break into pieces, break to pieces, break up, breakdown, breaking up, breakup, brunt, bulldozing, bulling, bump, bump into, burst, burst in, bust, butt in, calamity, cannon, carambole, carom, carom into, cascade, casualty, catabasis, cataclysm, cataract, catastrophe, cave, cave-in, chain smoking, charge in, chronic alcoholism, chute, clap, clash, cocainism, collapse, collide, collision, comb, come between, come down, come into collision, comedown, concuss, concussion, confront each other, conquering, conquest, contretemps, crack, crack up, crack-up, crash in, crash into, crash the gates, craving, crawl in, creep in, crescendo, cropper, crowd in, crump, crunch, crush, cut in, cut to pieces, dash, dash into, deafen, deathblow, debacle, deceleration, declension, declination, decline, decline and fall, declining market, decrescendo, defeat, deflation, defluxion, demolish, dependence, descend, descending, descension, descent, destruction, diffuse, diminuendo, din, dip down, dipsomania, disaster, disperse, disrupt, dive, doss down, down, downbend, downcome, downcurve, downfall, downflow, downgrade, downpour, downrush, downtrend, downturn, downward trend, drive, drop, drop down, drop off, dropping, drubbing, drug addiction, drug culture, drug dependence, dwindling, ebb, ebb and flow, edge in, elbow in, encounter, encroach, entrench, explode, explosion, fail, failure, fall, fall dead, fall down, fall flat, fall foul of, fall in, fall off, fall short, fall stillborn, fall through, falling, fill the air, fission, flap, flop, foist in, fold, fold up, force, foul, fragment, go bankrupt, go broke, go down, go downhill, go into receivership, go to pot, go to smash, go under, go up, gravitate, gravitation, grief, grind, habituation, hammering, heave, hiding, hit, hit against, hit the hay, hit the sack, horn in, hurt, hurtle, ill hap, impact, impinge, impingement, impose, impose on, impose upon, inclination, infiltrate, infringe, insinuate, insolvency, insufficient funds, interfere, interlope, interpose, intervene, intrude, invade, irrupt, jar, jolt, kip down, kited check, knock, knock against, lambasting, lapse, lathering, licking, lift, lose altitude, make mincemeat of, mastery, mauling, meet, meeting, mince, misadventure, mischance, misfortune, mishap, nasty blow, near-miss, nicotine addiction, nose dive, obtrude, off market, onslaught, overcoming, overdraft, overdrawn account, overthrow, overturn, parachute, peak, peal, percuss, percussion, physical dependence, pileup, pitch, plummet, plummeting, plunge, popple, pounce, pour down, pratfall, precipitate, press in, psychological dependence, pulverize, push in, put on, put upon, quietus, rain, ramming, rap, rapids, rattle the windows, receivership, remission, rend the air, rend the ears, report, resound, retreat, retreating market, ring, rise, rise and fall, rock the sky, roll, ruin, run, run into, rush in, sack out, sack up, sag, sagging market, scatter, scend, send, shipwreck, shiver, shock, shut down, sideswipe, slam, slam into, slap, slat, sledgehammering, slink in, slip in, slowdown, slump, smack, smack into, smash in, smash into, smash up, smash-up, smashing, smashup, sneak in, soft market, splat, splinter, split the eardrums, split the ears, squash, squeeze in, squish, staggering blow, startle the echoes, steal in, stoop, storm in, strike, strike against, stumble, stun, subdual, subduing, subjugation, subsidence, surge, swap, swell, swoop, tailspin, tap, thrashing, throng in, thrust in, thrusting, thunder, thwack, tolerance, topple, toss, total loss, tragedy, trench, trend downward, trespass, trimming, trouncing, tumble, turn in, undoing, undulate, vanquishment, wane, washout, waterfall, wave, whack, wham, whap, whipping, whomp, whop, withdrawal sickness, withdrawal symptoms, work in, worm in, wrack, wreck
