Dream of Someone Calling You: 4 Common Meanings

Dreams of someone calling you are often to do with communication. They may mean that you desire to interact more with other people, or they may be a representation of the type of advice and information that you should or should not take in from others.

Dream interpretation is subjective, unscientific, and highly personal. The below information is some possible symbolic interpretations people have had – but there’s no evidence that your dream determines your future and no one can say exactly what the dream means. The ultimate interpretation is up to you!

4 Interpretations of a Dream of Someone Calling You

There are 4 major ways in which dreams of someone calling you can be categorized when trying to interpret their meaning.

Which the correct one in your case is will depend on your own personal circumstances.

1. You Desire Interaction with Others

If you are dreaming about someone calling you, this could be your psyche visualizing its desire for interacting with other people.

Think about whether you have been feeling lonely lately. And if you have not been feeling lonely on any conscious level, think about just how much – or how little – interaction you have had with others in a purely social setting.

You may have been doing a good job at suppressing your desire to communicate with people, even to yourself, but your innermost thoughts may be telling you a very different story.

Reach out to some friends or family members you have not spoken to in a while and hang out. It may be healthy for you.

This can also be interpreted on a more granular level. If it is a specific person that you have a connection withcalling you, that could be your mind’s way of telling you that you wish for your relationship with this individual to be strengthened or rekindled.

Very often, these will be family members that you have not had contact with in a while or friends that you have just lost touch with.

It may also be someone who has passed on, whom you miss very much and would have liked to still be in contact with.

2. Listen tothe Caller for their Wisdom

If you do not feel that you are particularly lacking in communication with others, then we need to take a deeper look at what the dream means. The next level involves looking at who it is that is calling you in your dream and determining whether there is any symbolism to this.

Whoever the person in your dream calling you is can give you a hint as to what and whom your mind is telling you to pay attention to in the waking world. Although the symbolism in the individuals can be very personalized to the dreamer, we can pick up on some common threads.

For example, if you dream of one of your parents calling you, this could be a sign that you need to take advice from wiser people in your life.

This is especially true if your waking communications with your parents are normal, but you are going through a time in your life that involves making very big decisions.

Another common example is a dream in which you are being called by a doctor or other medical professional. These kinds of dreams could be a sign that you should not take unilateral risks with your health and should instead take professional advice you have received and follow up with the appropriate actions.

3. Beware of Negative Influence From Others

This might sound like a direct contradiction of the previous interpretation, but it is actually just the opposite side of the same coin.

If whoever is calling you in your dream is either someone whom you recognize to be negative or the interaction you have with them in your dream is negative, this could be your mind’s way of telling you to think about whom you allow to influence you.

The way your mind represents the negative influence could be through a real relationship or through a fictional proxy.

In the case of the real relationship, the person calling you in your dream may be someone who has led you down poor life choices or an ex from a toxic past relationship.

Pay attention to whether you are going through similar events as you did when you were in contact with this person. If you are, it may be time to take a step back.

If the caller in your dream is not an individual you know, think about what they may represent. For example, if you are dreaming of constant spam callers, that may symbolize that many people in your life who are trying to influence you, none of them with your interests at heart.

4. There Is Something In Your Life That Requires Attention

The most abstract interpretation of a dream of someone calling you has nothing to do with communications or interactions with other people.

It could just be your psyche’s way of literally calling out to you to catch your attention for something in your life that you have been neglecting. Have a think about if anything like that fits the bill for you.
