Can't speak

If you can’t communicate in your dreams (you can’t talk or shout), it reflects your feeling that you are not being heard in your waking life (see voice.) You may feel ignored or not valued for your thoughts or suggestions. Difficulty speaking in dreams represents feelings of being “tongue-tied” in our waking lives. Do you work in a position where you have to “watch your tongue” and “swallow your words?” Recurring dreams of a blocked voice that began in childhood symbolize painful events in your past that you still don’t like to talk about.

mute | speechless
