imprisoned

We are often imprisoned by a state of mind, by a fear, or by ignorarce. In attempting to develop a relation­ship, we may be trapped by feelings of dependence upon what our parents want us to do.

If we fear failure, we will not meet the challenge of the new, and so can be imprisoned by the fear. Such feelings as being an outsider, unwanted, resent­ful, can also imprison us in particular situations. See escape, trapped.

Imprisonment can suggest that we are spiritually too introverted or self-involved. We need to ‘open ourselves up’ to new influences. We may need assistance in doing this – and have to look to an outside influence to release us.

Psychological / emotional perspective: When we experience imprisonment in a dream, we are usually becoming conscious of old attitudes and beliefs, which are imprisoning us.

Material aspects: Being or feeling imprisoned in a dream often means that we are trapped by circumstances, often those we have created through our own fear or ignorance. We feel that other people are creating circumstances around us which will not allow us to move forward. We will often need to negotiate our freedom.
