Phone Call

Phone Call

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Dreaming of a phone indicates the need to distance oneself from a situation in waking life. However, there is still a need for information.

This dream can indicate that one needs to take a break or keep a person at arm’s length, but internally they really don’t want to. The dream indicates a struggle within to do what they need and what they want.

The phone in the dream can also indicate the reason that you need to keep a distance or act as a warning - depending on the phone conversation.

The phone call itself reveals messages that often you need to hear in your waking world, but may not be catching on to. The phone call itself can be revealing if you pay attention to not only what was said but also what the facial expressions and connotations were.

In this dream you may have

  • Made or received a phone call.
  • Talked to someone who has passed in a phone call.
  • Talked to God, an angel, or the Devil.
  • Had a hard time reaching someone by phone.
  • Dropped a phone call.
  • Wished you could make a phone call.
  • Shouted at someone over a phone call (or been yelled at).
  • Couldn’t hear someone on a phone call.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • You express love over a phone call
  • You talk to God or a higher power

Detailed dream meaning

Receiving a phone call in a dream can have many different meanings, which can be specific to you as sign about something in your life or indirect regarding general direction in your life. Usually there is a message of some kind that can be taken literally.

When you dream about talking to someone on the phone the person is important. Do you have an emotional attachment to someone? – whether they are alive or have passed – it sometimes is a sign that this person is doing alright. Sometimes you can get messages from your dreams from those who have passed on as well.

If you dream about talking to a loved one on the phone, often this will indicate that there is communication needed with this person – or that the communication between you and this person needs to be improved upon. It can be a sign of a problem in a relationship or the resolution to relationship (or friendship) problems.

If you dream about making a call on a payphone or in a public place this tells you that it is time to go “public” with information. It could mean that you or the person who was on the other line in your dream has information that more people should or will know about. This can also be an indication of someone spreading rumours.

In other dreams, sometimes the dreamer is actually being phoned by an archetypal being such as an angel, spirit guide or even God presence. With this scenario, I would interpret this as an answer to a prayer, an intention to connect stronger to the divine or being given a strong message of faith, protection and hope from the source of creation.

Strong emotion over a phone call in a dream – whether it is in a fight or expressing love – is an indication of repressed feelings.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Having repressed emotions.
  • Working out troubles with someone.
  • Rumours being spread.
  • Needing to talk to someone.
