Dreams about your Phone Not Working

Dreams about your phone not working are pretty common seeing as we all use our phones all the time. But when it comes to the meaning of dreams about our phones not working, we need to dig a little below the surface and think about what phones represent. Phones represent communication, so if your phone isn’t working, you need to ask yourself, am I having trouble communicating? The thing is, this isn’t always about communication with other people, you might need to ask yourself if you are communicating with your subconscious? All this considered, sometimes broken phones or machines represent the body, so is everything alright with your body?
