Any noise in dreams is a way of catching our attention, of focusing our minds. ‘White noise’ is a noise containing all of the audible frequencies of vibration; it is a good ‘masking’ agent when meditating or preparing for sleep used as a spiritual discipline.
Psychological / emotional perspective: Any external noise can often be incorporated into dreams as part of the dream content.
A bell ringing, for instance, might become a school bell.
Material aspects: When we hear a strange noise in our dreams, we can expect the unexpected and the unknown in waking life.
In a dream, noise means witnessing a social disorder, public outcry, participating in a religious festival or in an important public event that will involve the interest of all people. (Also see Shout)
