Hostage, Dream Interpretation


Forced to put aside one’s own free will and desire in order to appease another; see “bound”

A hostage is a person held as security. Spiritually, therefore, this has the same connotation as kidnap since it would constitute a crime against the right of the individual. Hostages held for religious reasons in dreams suggest that we are unsure of our own beliefs.

Psychological / emotional perspective: An emotional hostage is that part of us that in dreams recognizes that it has had the ability to think and feel for ourselves taken away, either through trauma or neglect.

Material aspects: In dreams, to find ourselves taken as hostage suggests that we have put ourselves in the position of being a victim and do not feel that we are able to resist. There may be a higher purpose at stake rather than just our own freedom. Consult the entries for abduct, hijack, kidnap and victim for further information.

(Pawn; Deposit) If one sees himself as a hostage in a dream, it means that he has earned himself an accumulation of sins that made him a pawn for repayment of his debts. Ifone sees himself holding someone as a guarantee for a promise, or keeping him as a pawn until his demands are met in a dream, it means that he is veering toward injustice.

A hostage in a dream also represents mistakes, errors, exposing people’s private life, divulging people’s secrets, slander, or a debt that keeps the person subject to constant harassment. Being a hostage in a dream also means adversities, trials, or falling in love with someone, whereby, one’s heart becomes a hostage of his beloved. (Also see Enemy; Enmity)

If you dream of being a hostage, you are feeling victimized and powerlessness in some real-life situation. You may also be feeling limited in your choices.

1. Feelings of a loss of control, powerlessness in life.

2. Lack of mobility.

Dreaming about being a hostage suggests that you may experience feelings of victimization or entrapment. This can be indicative of a situation in daily life, such as an oppressive and unsatisfactory relationship or financial difficulties.

The dream suggests that you may experience feelings of powerlessness and can not see you way out of a difficult situation. Because a hostage is taken against his will, you may be feeling as though you have been trapped by another or by circumstances. Also, the hostage situation in your dream may represent a part of your personality that is not being expressed. It could be your creativity, intellect, or inner freedom.

The purpose of this dream may be to make you more aware of the limiting conditions in your life. Additionally, the dream may trigger your imagination and problem-solving abilities enabling you to see new possibilities.
