you are headed mentally, emotionally, or spiritually.
To dream of walking, running, or driving backwards represents
awareness of yourself doing something differently that everyone else.

going backwards may also reflect a loss of progress or a reversal
To dream of facing
or talking to people while standing backwards may reflect sensitive
feelings about discussing uncomfortable issues. Talking about your
problems briefly without discussing them in much detail. Feeling embarrassed
to address certain issues too openly or too enthusiastically. Uncomfortable
discussions that are hiding the full story. Intentionally ignoring
discussing an embarrassing situation in detail. Noticing what a problem
is without wanting to embarrass yourself talking about it.
Example: A woman
dreamed of only being comfortable talking to people if they were standing
backwards to her. In waking life she was very sensitive about discussing
her doctors orders that required her to get a c-section because he
pelvis was too small. She felt comfortable talking about the coming
baby, but was embarrassed to discuss the c-section because she felt
it made her look less of a natural woman.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of driving backwards in a car. In waking
life she was intentionally testing her friends to see if they would
prefer to never know her again while faking needing their help with
her disease. Driving backwards in this case may have reflected her
decision-making style preferring lose friends instead of gaining them
while she tested them.
