Communication Breakdown

If you hear a message in a dream which you know to be important but simply cannot understand, even if it is in your own language, this is a clear symbol of frustration in waking life. A similar scenario would be if you are trying to explain something to someone but cannot make yourself understood. Both dreams speak of times in your life when, for some reason, communication is blocked, or you are misreading the emotions of someone or they are misreading you.

If you dream that you have muddled your words, this suggests a vain struggle to attract the attention of someone in your dream. The inability to say the right words when you meet them may symbolize feelings of inadequacy in real life or a deep sense of frustration that the important people in your life, or the people you respect and admire, do not appreciate or even notice you. One of the most distressing scenarios in a dream is when you try to talk or cry out but have no voice.

If you have such a dream, try to work out who is not hearing you in waking life; do you need to listen more and give your voice a rest?

Tripping up in public, forgetting your words when giving a speech, treading on someone’s toes in a dance, or spilling food and drink over a VIP can all betray a deep sense of social inadequacy, even with regard to people close to you. Perhaps your ineptitude masks an element of defiance, expressing your feelings of frustration with the stifling rules and norms of social convention.

If someone you know appears in a dream but you find yourself unable to recognize them, this suggests feelings of frustration or ambivalence towards that person in waking life. A similar sense is conveyed if you are looking on as a spy whilst a friend or lover commits a crime, or an illicit or compromising act.... communication breakdown dream meaning
