It represents hearing and therefore, communication. The presence of one ear in a dream means that you must pay more attention to the instructions of your inner voice. This image should also make you reflect on the need to be more open and listen, especially the advice of older people. According to the theory on which auriculotherapy (ear acupuncture) is based, this organ symbolizes the whole individual, because of its resemblance to a fetus. Freudian psychoanalysis associates ears with the vagina and the act of piercing them, the symbol of deflowering. Thus, if a woman dreams that she does not have ears or suffers from otitis, it signifies the unconscious refusal to support the sexual desires of her partner. Soon you will receive news.

Body reactions during sleep
Most of us must have experienced hallucinations or night mares. When we experience such dreams we are unable to move or react. This stage is referred to as sleep paralysis. This type of dream occurs in between wakefulness and REM. As it occurs during the REM stage, it causes complete muscle weakness preventing the individual reacting to the dreams.
Types of sleep
There are two types of sleep that most of the humans undergo - REM and NREM. REM refers to the Rapid Eye Movement and NREM refers to Non-Rapid Eye Movement. Every individual will alternate these two types of sleep. Non-REM sleep will occur for a short period of time in the first stage of your sleep followed by the REM sleep. Dreams occur during the REM stage, where it lasts for 20 minutes. According to a researcher, J. Allan Hobson, dreams that occur in REM stage are usually forgotten when the individual wakes up. Studies conducted on patients during sleep shows that the frontal lobes in the brain, that are responsible for storing information, are inactive during the REM stage, which is the main cause for forgetting the dreams. Studies also show that this is the stage where you have the most intense dreams.
