CAPTIVE, PRISONER

Many emotions, anxieties, moods or ideas captivate’ us, or act as means of denying free expression to our own talents, sexuality or well being. Fear of illness might stop us going on holiday, thoughts that only the pnvileged can make it in business might stop us developing ideas we have. In this sense we, or areas of our potential, can be imprisoned or made captive. Using dream processing and the allied methods can help to define what is restraining us and find freedom from such restraints.

LAW COURT / PRISON

A law court in a dream may make you focus on your capacity to make fair judgments in complicated matters concerning work, friends or family members. It may also highlight your feelings of being on trial in waking life, or a sense of guilt about having broken a promise, or a moral or social law. Perhaps you are anxious about being judged by others or feel that there something that you should be punished for.

If you find yourself bundled into prison in your dream, perhaps with the clang of heavy gates swinging shut in your ears, this may be drawing a parallel with your sense of confinement in waking life. So, if you have any kind of dream about prisons or being jailed, ask yourself who or what is restricting your freedom in waking life. Do you feel suffocated emotionally by your partner or parents, or do you feel trapped in a dead-end job? Or has your own shyness locked you into a self-made prison in the waking world?...

LOST / TRAPPED

In these extremely common dreams, you are lost and feeling desperate. You may be buried alive or locked in a cage. Or you dream of not being able to move; you are powerless to scream or breathe. Such dreams may occur when you feel confusion or conflict about how to act in waking life. The images are influenced by biological roots and experiences. Feeling trapped or unable to move also mirrors what occurs to the large muscles of the body during normal REM sleep, when they are paralyzed to prevent the body from acting out dreams. Such dreams could reflect frustrations in waking life, such as feeling trapped in a relationship or a deadend job. The flip side to such dreams is a dream of discovering new spaces; you may open a door in your home to find a new room or find something new in the neighborhood. These dreams occur usually when you feel that an aspect of your life is opening up.... The Element Encyclopedia

PRISON

1- Prison, in dreams, stands for the traps we create for ourselves. We may feel that outside circumstances are making life difficult, but in actual fact we are creating those circumstances ourselves. This can be on an emotional, material or spiritual level.

Often we crcate a prison for ourselves through a sense of duty or guilt and this can often be shown in dreams.

The types of locks and bolts we perceive in our prison may show us how we are imprisoning ourselves.

For example, a lock with a key would suggest that we know how to escape, whereas a bolt shows that we have to make a greater effort.

A barred window would suggest that we are being prevented from using that which is external to us.

Duty and guilt are opposite sides of the same coin in a spiritual sense. Duty can be a liability and therefore a trap, and guilt can prevent us from seeing a way forward. Often, when we feel trapped either by duty or guilt we will dream of a prison.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

PRISON

(1) Are you in prison in the dream? This probably means you arc not tree: your behaviour is to some extent compulsive, that is, not under conscious control.

If so, you must integrate the repressed emotion or

instinct that is now overflowing from your unconscious into your observable behaviour,

(2) If someone else is in prison, he or she probably represents some part of you that has been shut up in your unconscious, possibly as a result of some traumatic experience (in childhood?), and which needs to be set free and given suitable employment in your conscious life....

PRISON

There are consequences for the choices you make, and some of those choices bind you in a particular way. When you break the law, you go to prison. And while you have to engage in criminal activity to find yourself in prison in real life, the idea of being imprisoned by something can easily apply to any number of circumstances where you feel bound to some person, place, or thing in a way that feels severely constricting. In fact, the phrase “like a jail sentence” is often used in casual conversation to refer to anything that obligates a person beyond his or her comfort level. There is a difference between jail and prison that may be significant, especially if the dream was clearly taking place in one or the other. While the two have very similar sensibilities, a jail is where people are taken when they are suspected of committing a crime or when the crime is of low severity. Prison is where convicted criminals of more serious crimes are sent to pay their debt to society.

If this distinction is made clear in your dream, recognize that jail is a more temporary form of bondage. Prison indicates that a more serious matter is being expressed. At the core of the symbolic meaning of prison is what you did to get there.

The inciting incident that ends in jail time is always a choice that may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but has consequences resulting in the removal of freedom and comfort in some area of your life. When this environment plays prominently in a dream, examine your life for where you may be feeling that a decision you made in the past is feeling like something you can’t escape in the present....

PRISON, PRISONER

Vision: If you dream you are in prison: if you are married, it means you are dissatisfied. You feel locked up in your relationship or removed from real life. Visiting someone in prison means either a very bad conscience or deep regret over past actions.

If you are released from prison: a new phase in your life is beginning. Seeing a prison: somebody is offering you something “uninviting.*

Depth Psychology: Dreams about prison are usually a sign of fear about an emotionally intense relationship. Maybe your personal growth is hindered and you want to do something about it quickly (like “breaking out”)!

TRAPPED

Example: ‘After our first baby was born I had such nightmares my doctor gave me a tranquilliser to take before going to sleep. I have taken one at bedtime for 36 years! I am too afraid not to take it. But I still have dreams’ (Margaret S-W). Although this is not a dream about being trapped, Mar­garet is trapped by fears which she never faces. Such fears can stay with us a lifetime, so it is much more economical and satisfying to meet the difficulties they represent. In a dream, Margaret’s fears might be represented by a trapped dream, such as the next example.

Example: I am trapped in a small brick room with no way out. I shout for someone to help me. Then either a huge bird or creature with arms tries to catch me and I scream myself awake’ (Karen S). Karen had lived through a divorce, an un­happy love affair, the loss of a baby. In the dream the figure who comes after she has called for help might save her, but her fears make her reject it. Perhaps Karen’s feelings about men paint them as monsters. Whatever her past males may have been like, with such feelings it is Karen herself who is the prisoner and suffers loneliness. Trapped dreams can also depict feelings we have about work, about lack of opportunity, and so on. It must be remembered that the dream puts into images one’s own feelings about the situation, not the external thing itself. See imprisoned; cage; cell; wolj under animal; escape; holding. ...
