Dreams in which you are fighting to breathe are usually to do with a sense that the external environment, or your inner attitudes or fears, are threatening to kill your pleasure in living. Dreams in which you feel you are being choked or strangled may suggest that that there is something in waking life that is choking, strangling or squeezing the life out of you—a job, a relationship or a situation.

You feel stifled by people or circumstances and are not in control of either. Choking in dreams also suggests an inability to express yourself properly in waking life. There may be some kind of conflict or indecision about whether or not you should speak out or hold your tongue.

If you struggled to breathe in a smoggy or smoke-filled atmosphere of a polluted dream environment, this could suggest that you are finding your reallife circumstances claustrophobic and stifling to your individuality and personal growth. Or do you feel that the demands of your job or lifestyle are killing your curiosity and creativity? If you were strangled by someone, this suggests you may be holding back feelings as most of our feelings create sounds, such as laughter or crying; an attack on the neck is thus an attempt to stifle these emotions. Whatever you decide caused you to fight for air in your dream, be it a positive or a negative influence, your unconscious was probably warning you to broaden your horizons and let some metaphorical ‘fresh air’ into your life.

A situation in real life is crushing you emotionally and you are not able to overcome it on your own. Similarly, perhaps it is caused by a possessive partner or an overprotective father. All this hinders your psychological growth.

It is very important that you restore the sense of identity in order to regain freedom of action. (See DROWNING)

Strangely enough, it is a fortunate sign to find yourself Choking in your dream.

Mystic Dream Book | Internet Archive - Anonymous

You are struggling to speak your mind and facing an overwhelming or dangerous block to effective communication. Any experience that connects with the neck and throat places us in the realm of communication. When someone is choking, their ability to speak is limited or even eliminated. Someone choking or being choked in a dream is dealing with communication issues that are intense enough to be, at least symbolically, a matter of life and death. Look to where issues of communication are connected to people, places, or things where the stakes feel very high.

If you are choking someone else, consider that you may be trying to stifle a particular way of communicating in the world that may be out of control or not serving you in some way.
