If you were wearing earmuffs in your dream, then it’s possible you don’t want to hear something in your waking life.
Perhaps you already know what it is and don’t want someone to confirm it for you- or maybe- you don’t but you sense it will be bad for you. You may have adopted the ignorance is bliss attitude in life to get you through.
Perhaps you are trying to shield yourself from the cold words of someone. If they are being unkind about someone you care about or even you- it’s possible you don’t want to hear them so blocking them out feels almost like they didn’t say them in the first place.
Maybe you have a habit of hearing only the things you want to and not the things you don’t. You attitude could be affecting your relationships as a result.
If someone else was wearing earmuffs in your dream, then you may feel like you’re not being heard by those at home or at work. Why don’t others listen to you when you need them to? Could it be what you are taking about or the way you are communicating with them? Could changing either of these encourage them to listen to you?
If you were buying earmuffs in your sleep state then you are deliberately being ignorant to something or someone during your waking hours. If this proving beneficial or is it delaying the inevitable? Earmuffs are also associated with childhood- so maybe you need to have more fun during your waking hours or spend more time with someone who brings out your childish side.
It’s possible you have been reflecting on your childhood lately and something about it has given you some insight into your behaviour as an adult.
