To dream of walking, running, or driving backwards represents awareness of yourself doing something differently that everyone else. A direction in life that may seem odd or to be the opposite of others.
Dreaming of going backwards may also reflect a loss of progress or a reversal of decisions.
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 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.
