Thus, because it is such a great fear there are many reasons why a person might dream about deafness.
Deafness in itself is a very concrete symbol in terms of how it is seen not only in dreams but in all kinds of other representations. It has a very strong and well prescribed meaning that it cannot be easily stripped of. One of the most important things about the term deaf is how it can be applied to just about anything. You can be deaf to another’s words without actually being literally “deaf.” Basically the point is, you need to realize that there are a lot of reasons why you might dream of deafness but the main ones are quite common.
If you have a dream in which you are going deaf, this is meant to bring about the idea that you are closing yourself off to outside influence. Others are trying to tell you something but you are ignoring them and making things a lot more difficult. This is causing you a lot of problems in life. You can’t simply ignore the input of others especially if that input is correct. You need to learn to take criticism in stride and simply roll with what others tell you even if it does seem to be offensive at first.
To dream that someone you love is suffering from deafness may mean that you are not making your true feelings about anything known to them. You need to be more honest and upfront with the way you feel about certain situations and the way that you feel about them. They would greatly appreciate your honesty and your ability to tell them what is really on your mind. It is an important characteristic. They aren’t failing to hear it because of their own problem though; they are failing to hear it because you are failing to share. Buck up the courage and tell them how you feel. This is important stuff.
