Feeling as if one is not completely free, but is controlled by others
Parole strictly means our word of honour and in that sense signifies a promise to conform to whatever laws are appropriate – with awareness, spiritual laws.
Psychological / emotional perspective: To be on parole indicates that there is some way in which we feel we have offended against natural laws. When we give someone else parole we are aware that we can trust them to act with honour.
Material aspects: To have been judged by a higher authority and then to have been put on parole suggests that someone who in real life has some kind of authority over us is trusting us to do our best, but that trust is conditional on a job well done.
If you dream of being on parole, you may be feeling relief after getting out of a suffocating relationship or situation. Or your dream may be telling you that you crave a break from some relationship tension.
If you dream of someone else being out on parole, it is a warning that this person (or someone they remind you of, if you don’t know the person in your dream) could be untrustworthy.
