  1. I had a dream of my now exwife,,, she was at our home place,, outside,,, beside the high tree at the top of the driveway,, she was surrounded by complete darkness,, almost like being infilfed in blackness,,, she had a terrifying and very concerned look on her face,, she was talking,, but there was no sound,,, she was in handcuffs,,, what does this mean,, if any body knows,,,

  2. My mother dreamt of me being arrested by police with handcuffs on my wrists… What does this implement?

  3. The dream was my husband and I laying in bed. I look over and he’s in handcuffs but they don’t require a key to open them. They’re attached to each other by somewhat of a lanyard hook. I reach over and unclip them. Poof the dream is over.
