The dreamer’s father died a few years ago. Their relationship wasn’t very good when he was young, but dramatically began to improve shortly before his death. They long for his advice
“I keep having this dream about my father that passed in 2005. In this dream he is not dead. I dont know my age in the dream, but I am living at home with him, but my wife and kids are not there. I don’t really see him per se, but I know that he is there. Its like he is at work. I go to meet him at his work and the people there tell me that he has left for the day or is out of the office working or whatever, but its always the same, he is not in the office. I try to call him on his cell phone and I can not get him. I call and call but he never answers. I go home, and the home is the house where I grew up. I can see his truck driving down the road so I know that he is not dead, its like I know that he *was* dead, but is back now, and its just something that we never talk about. Like I said, I see his truck going down the road by the house, so I call and call and call his cell phone, but he wont answer the damn phone and it really makes me mad. I keep trying to get ahold of him but he wont answer the phone. I am able to talk to the people at his work and they always have some excuse as to why I just missed him or what ever he isnt around, but I see his truck driving down the road and I call and call and cant get him on the phone. Its always some different scene, but always the same scenario. I have this dream all the time. I wake up depressed and sometimes crying. I am a 33 year old man and I dont know why I have these dreams and feel this way. Just needed someone to talk to I guess. I just wish one time in the dream that he would answer the phone.”
The dream appears to be pointing to your difficulty grieving and getting over your father’s passing. Clearly, you miss him very much. Calling him and getting no answer in the dreams reflects your disappointment in being unable to have the personal connection you once had. Asking him for advice or having a feeling of closeness is no longer possible.
Calling anyone in a dream represents our desire to connect to certain feelings, situations, or people. A cellphone reflects what we hold dear to us or wish to have in our lives the most.
If you are using your cellphone to call your father and he never answers this represents your desire to have him close to you in the your life and never being able to.
