The break­down On a con­scious level, scream­ing stems from feel­ings of fear or anger and al­lows us emo­tional re­lease. On a sub­con­scious level, scream­ing with no sound is ex­tremely frus­trat­ing and re­flects feel­ings of pow­er­less­ness. The dream rep­re­sents fu­tile at­tempts to gain at­ten­tion in real life. If you’re ex­pe­ri­enc­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion prob­lems with your S.O. or boss, this could be the source. Be sure to com­mu­ni­cate your point loud and clear when you’re awake in or­der to rid your­self of this dream.
