No Matter what type of dream is related to jail, they can be of a similar si source from where they manifest.
Normally, it is when you get involved in something, be it positive or negative, and is feeling being trapped. Now, what could these dreams mean?
1. You Are Afraid Of Having A Commitment
You may come across an amazing person in your life. This person could be your love interest, business partner, or just a great friend. But no matter how much you try, you cannot be fully committed to that person.
It does not even have to be a person. Suppose you are thinking of starting a business, but you are afraid to be fully committed to the business as you are uncertain about its success. This fear of commitment, not being truthful, makes you anxious.
This could manifest into a dream where you see yourself trapped or “committed” to jail, the very fear which put you in this situation.
2. You Are Hiding Your Emotions
Have you been trapping your emotions? You want to speak out to someone, but you are afraid to express yourself? Are you locking yourself up inside yourself? Then this could be a reason for a dream of seeing yourself trapped in a jail.
This dream is a visual representation of what you are doing to yourself. You see yourself trapped inside a jail. Unable to get out. And even if you see someone outside of the jail, you cannot call for help. Just like you cannot open up and express your feelings to friends and family.
3. You Are Trapped In A Relationship
This somewhat correlates to the first cause. Suppose you are in a relationship with someone. That necessarily does not need to be romantic, it could be between your boss, co-worker, or someone from your family.
But, you are feeling suffocated in that relationship. You feel that you are not yourself and constantly adjust your personality to satisfy the other person.
This also results in trapping yourself in a toxic relationship and you dream yourself trapped in jail, reflecting the ‘trapped in a toxic relationship’ that is happening in your life.
4. You Feel Alone And Separated From Everyone
This constant feeling of being left out and always being alone could manifest into a dream where you see yourself trapped in a cage.
You feel that you have no friends and cannot rely on anyone in your life. This puts you in a difficult place where you never feel the warmth of acceptance.
This reflects into a dream where you see yourself trapped alone in a cold, isolated jail. No one will come for you in that jail and you also can not get out.
5. You Let Others Control You
This is the opposite of the previous interpretation. You have many people around you, but you are too shy and can never be yourself. You constantly let others decide what you should do and you have no right or freedom and this causes severe stress.
There could be various reasons why you have a dream where you are trapped in jail or imprisoned. Hopefully, this article has shown you why you see such dreams and what you can do to get yourself out of such imprisonment.
