7 Spiritual Meanings of Hearing a Train: Day and Night

7 Spiritual Meanings of Hearing a Train: Day and Night

You can say that I have this attachment to the sounds of trains. For one, I have this intricate and large train set that was nicely set up in our house.

It was big and a bit loud. I can still remember my excitement after my dad and I finished setting up the train set.

I also loved trains because I associated them with travel. There were some nice places I’ve been to abroad where train travel was the best (or at least less expensive) way of getting to a different location.

So, the sound of trains is a delightful sound for me and invokes great memories.

But one night I woke up to the sounds of the train. It was weird as my flat was nowhere near a train station and neither did I have a train set at home. 

I was perplexed at the sounds and then I remembered that this could be heaven’s way of telling me something. It was more than just a train sound that I was hearing but rather a message from the universe.

Have you experienced running very late which forces you to run to the train station as fast as you can?

And when you are on the platform, you see the train leaving, which means you’ve only missed for a couple of seconds.

And then you feel so much regret at the chance to have gotten on that train.

You may want to think of this when you hear the train sounds.

This is because the heavens are telling you that soon you will experience some disappointment because you missed a great opportunity. Sometimes the regret for these missed opportunities can be quite overwhelming so brace yourself.

3) A delayed blessing

The train sounds you hear could also signify that a blessing that you have long asked for will soon be coming your way.

It is likely that you are no longer anticipating this blessing and have given up on it.

The heavens are now telling you that something you really wanted badly will be yours soon.

This is a delayed blessing since you no longer thought it would happen or it was possible to get this thing you wanted.

The pet that’s about to die could also be a great friend’s pet and so you will share in his or her sorrow.

6) Restful days

The train sounds could also be the heavens’ way of telling you that you will be able to rest well in the next few days or weeks.
