Deaf Dream Meanings and Interpretations


Deaf – Dreaming about being deaf is allegorical to problems in communication in your relationships to others. It can mean that you are unwilling to listen to opinions other than your own. It may also mean that the opinions of others are adversely affecting you and that you need to quit listening to others and instead listen to your heart.

Because of the difficulty in properly interpreting this dream, it is important that you pay close attention to the other aspects of the dream sequence in order to better understand what the appropriate interpretation might be.

If you dream about someone else being deaf in your dream, it means that you are not being listened to and need to take a different tack in your communication methods. If you have been using the written word, such as letters, email, or texts, you should probably try to meet with the person face to face or vice versa.

Communication is a very important part of our lives that requires not only a message, but the right messenger as well. It might be beneficial to ask someone else to help you communicate important messages to others.

It is a reminder you need to put effort into relationships regularly. People need to feel valued. Dreaming of being deaf in one ear is a warning to pay attention to the details. You may be trying to solve a situation but cannot. You may be skimming over what appears to be the things that are not relevant, where, in reality, these can be the key to solving the situation.

  1. Hi there, thank you for the post!

    Was wondering could you enlighten me on the following:

    I dreamt that my partner/friend (couldn’t remember clearly, a little confused if it’s two people) suddenly lost his/her hearing. I cried and suggested perhaps we should go learn sign language together.

    Then a colleague from my previous previous job appeared to be in the same area of the dream and suggested something about sign language (cause she herself in real life knows or was learning sign language when I was working with her).

    I remember I was crying in the dream feeling sad for my partner/friend… but when I woke up I wasn’t actually crying or feeling super sad… but I felt relief that it was a dream. (Previously when I had bad dreams or nightmares I would feel negative upon waking).

    Thank you!!

  2. I literally just woke from a dream, where I was at a party which I have planned for Saturday, people was there it was my friends birthday I got into an argument with my partner, and he came over and said are you going to be nice, I replied no and pushed him away and storming off I sat myself in a chair… I look up n half the guests disappeared I got a text to a phone that wasnt mine saying can’t wait for the party I’m pumped off my partners sister who isn’t even invited… with that everyone started shouting shit up up the stairs, it made me deaf I could barely hear anything but a faint of what they were saying my sister was extremely concerned about something that was going on upstairs I was screaming shut up to them while holding my throbbing ears because I wanted the noise to stop and they then turned their direction towards me shouting shut up at me… I woke up ears still throbbing and a real uneasy feeling

    I had a dream I felt like I couldn’t keep myself awake at work, it was really dark and I felt scared. I kept getting calls while I was at work and they were asking me strange questions. When I got off work I felt a lot of dread walking out. I found my mom and a scary old lady talking outside. My mom called me over and started talking about business deals, the old lady then asked her “did she wash her hair?” Which for some reason made me even more scared in my dream. I cursed in my dream a few times and the lady got super angry because I was spreading negative energy. She got a gun and started shooting it. When she ran out of bullets me mom was speechless and pouting at the ceiling where this thing had a head in it and it was shaking. Then I went deaf and couldn’t hear anything. Even in my dream I was freaking out because I couldn’t hear. Then the old lady grabbed us and started running up these stairs. I woke up and felt so scared. I don’t know why that scared me so much.

  4. Also, I went looking for the snake online. It resembles a non venomous fox snake or a California king snake with red speckled. The fangs when I was bit in my dream was short, thin, and multiple. Like a hypothermic needle in shape and feel.

  5. I had a dream I was working on a painting on canvas and a drawing on my sketch pad, but my left eye was blurred and my left ear was stopped up. That side of my face felt numb. I heard rustling in the other room and also needed my rubber eraser and sharpener that was also in that room. I went in to find a snake that was majority cream colored with black spots and a tiny bit of red specks. I went to pick it up to move it outside and it bit me three times. I couldn’t yell or scream. And my son just stood in the way from me taking it out of the house. He heatd the noises and I begged him to call my husband, and he just stood there. I woke up. After that dream, I have felt very uneasy towards that room and have feelings like there is something evil in there. Please help.
