Dream Interpretation of Imprisonment in Dream Dictionary for Dummies
Seeing a prison in a dream forecasts that the dreamer is looking at the limits he imposes on himself or allows others to impose on him and the way he stifles his creativity. It also means that he can’t escape from rules, restrictions, and responsibilities.
The interpretation of prison, in this mode, is that there are parts of yourself or subconscious fears, you have locked away and want to examine and release. Such dreams also symbolize that you are dealing with authority problems, feelings of guilt, punishment, being trapped or restrained, or excluded or shut out.
In this sense, dreaming about prison means that the dreamer is living inside a box of limited thinking and fixed beliefs, narrowing his possibilities. Another dream interpretation of prison is that the dreamer needs to be still, removes distractions, and focuses on his core self.
A number of dream interpreters and psychologists have believed that prison in a dream is the forerunner of misfortune in every instance if it encircles your friends, or yourself.
Dismissing from prison
To see any one dismissed from prison in a dream foretells that you will finally overcome misfortune.
Imprisonment in a dream can represent that we are spiritually too introverted or self-involved. We need to ‘open ourselves up’ to new influences. It also means that we may need assistance in doing this – and have to look to an outside influence to release us. Experiencing imprisonment in a dream is a sign showing that we are usually becoming conscious of old attitudes and beliefs, which are imprisoning us.
Being or feeling imprisoned in a dream often indicates that we are trapped by circumstances, often those we have created through our own fear or ignorance. It is a herald representing that we feel other people are creating circumstances around us that will not let us move forward. We will often need to negotiate our freedom.
