Symbolic of the power to bind or stop certain actions or behavior, Matt. 16:19
Handcuffs are a binding symbol and spiritually would suggest that we are being hampered, probably by our own doubts and fears.
Psychological / emotional perspective: If we are putting handcuffs on someone, we may be attempting to bind that person to us and assert our supremacy over them or what they represent in the dream. We may be being overly possessive.
Material aspects: Dreaming of being in handcuffs denotes that we have been restrained in some way, possibly by an authority figure. We may ourselves feel that we need to be more circumspect. ‘Joke’ handcuffs are often taken as symbols of marriage or committed partnership. In dreams their deeper meaning may signal some doubts about the relationship.
If you find yourself handcuffed in a dream this shows that you will be beset by enemies.
If you see a pair of handcuffs this will show that there is a possible illness for you in the near future.
If you see someone else handcuffed then you will overcome all your enemies and win out.
Your hands are tied! There is something you really want to do, but you are being prevented from doing it.
If you dream of being in handcuffs, you will have trouble in a real life situation that you wish you could get out of.
If you dream of escaping from handcuffs, it means others will follow your lead. Also see “Arrested.”
This is a dream of contrary—good fortune awaits you.
1. Feelings of powerlessness; feeling trapped or restrained.
2. Strong feelings of guilt—usually over a lost temper, often over past misdeeds.
3. Reverse: obstacles will be overcome, prosperity achieved.
4. A possible brush with the law is in the ofﬁng.
Apart from a dream of occupation such as an officer of the law, the handcuffs denote rigid ties that are unbearable to the dreamer.
The officers naturally dream of their work a great many times.
If the dreamer breaks open the handcuffs or is released from them, the stigma of mental incarceration will be removed.
Dreams of handcuffs are about restraint, punishment, control, restriction, and holding back. You are grappling with feelings of guilt and shame. See Prison.
