Trapped Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Trapped Dream Symbol – Dreaming of being trapped means you cannot free yourself of someone or something. Being restrained using rope or cable can symbolize your ties to things and to people in your reality. You may have taken on too many responsibilities. Made too many commitments and feel you are running out of time. Maybe you feel obligations that you no longer want to be tied to.

Dreaming of entrapment can also mean you feel isolated from the rest of the world. Maybe you are trying to trap someone else into following your agenda. Do others exclude you from their lives? Dreaming of struggling against being trapped signifies difficult love affairs. And, when someone falls into a trap, this can mean you are unjustly abused and judged by strangers.

Dreaming that you are trapped might be interpreted by some to mean that you are trapped in life. However, even though this is a common interpretation and can sometimes be true this dream also has another meaning. Not only can you be trapped by yourself or others, or even the gods, and kept from doing the things that you desire to do, you can also be trapped by your blankets in your bed.

    i had a dream that i was in my room and it was dark. i could still see though, but i wanted to get out. when i opened the door there was the exact door behind it, with the same scratch below the doorknob. i opened that one and there was another behind it. i kept opening and opening and when i knew that wouldnt work i started screaming, but nothing really came out. i knew someone was in here with me but i was scared to look around, so i stayed facing the door. over my screams i heard a deep voice say to me “im not gonna let you out” i screamed again because there was noone there with me, and the man was whispering in my ear. thats when i woke up breathing really hard

    i dont know what this dream means but i can remember it vividly.
