Cell Phone

You are dreaming of being connected to or disconnected from the people in your life. In this day and age, your cell phone represents the power and speed of thought.

The instant you think of someone, you can connect to them. Whatever is happening with a cell phone in a dream relates to how strong that connectedness is at the time of your dream. Using your cell phone in a dream means you desire to feel instantly connected to others in your life. Static on a call is representative of anxiety or chaotic and disconnected ideas.

A lost cell phone is to have misplaced your ability to express yourself and your thoughts with your extended community.

Cell Phone

Universal Landscape: Instant connection and communication of thought.

Dreaming Lens: Were you using your phone? Was someone else using a cell phone? Did you have a clear connection, or was there interference? Did you lose your cell phone? Did the cell phone feel like a helpful tool or a burdensome necessity? Was the cell phone user being responsible?

Personal Focus: In a matter of a few decades, the relatively new phenomenon of cell phones have become so commonplace as to be taken for granted in the Western world. They provide an instant connection from one person to another no matter where either party is located. On the mundane level, they represent the accelerating speed of the world in which we live. Symbolically, they embody a concept that might be called supra-conscious: the connection between human beings across the planet through technology that provides the instantaneous exchange of ideas almost at the speed of thought.

When considering the symbolic meaning of this particular device, we cannot overlook the limitations that are currently part of the experience of using them. Static interference, abrupt disconnection, and accidental dialing are all part of the pitfalls of the current technological development. If any of these experiences play a role in your dream, your interpretation must include such challenges. If the object itself holds the meaning of instant connection and higher levels of thought, then a frustrating cell phone interaction symbolizes disconnect instead. Static could indicate that communication is blocked and you are feeling misunderstood or misunderstanding some life event. If there is a stigma of pretentiousness attached to cell phones, it could represent a move toward or away from conformity. A cell phone that cannot make a connection could mean your quick fix thinking may be failing you. A smooth connection could be telling you the answer to your communication problems is right there in your pocket.

Phone Won’t Work

In this kind of dream you are in a situation in which you urgently need to call for help but, maddeningly, the phone won’t work. Either the line is dead, the buttons don’t work or you get through to the wrong person or end up with an operator who cuts you off. You try to explain your situation but no one is willing to help. During these types of dream, tension levels are high. Phones and mobile phones in dreams represent your ability to communicate and dreams about phone trouble typically occur when things are reaching crisis point in waking life. You may be finding it hard to get your message across and to get the help you need.

If the operator puts you on hold or ignores you, it is more likely that you have been ignoring your own needs for rest, outside help or relaxation. The message this dream is trying to convey to you is that it is time to pay closer attention to something that you may have been putting off; this may involve asking for qualified help and support. Phone dreams are usually signals to be honest with yourself and listen to your intuition. A variation of this dream is the email error on your computer screen, indicating an inability to communicate with someone important in your life. Freudians might see phallic symbolism if you are using a mobile phone, suggesting that once again sex is the root of the problem. See also MEDIA AND TECHNOLOGY.... phone won’t work dream meaning
