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. See imprisoned; wolf under animals; cage, cell; escape; holding; trapped.
