If you were a prisoner in your dream, it’s possible some situation or relationship is making you feel restricted in your waking hours.

It could be a warning to you to change up your routines as the ones you have in place are making you feel restrained. Do you need to make a major change in your life to feel a sense of liberation? It might be hard to contemplate but it could be your key to happiness.

Consider your behaviours too- perhaps you fall into the same patterns of behaviour that make you feel enslaved. Delve deep and consider what you are repressing as this could be the very thing that is holding you back.

If not- maybe you need to recruit some help from a professional or a trusted friend to deal with whatever problem it is you are facing. Consider who was with you in the dream as this might be the very person who can assist you in escaping your dilemma or undoing what has gone wrong for you. The dream could be a pun for shedding light on a situation in your life. Perhaps you are able to see something more clearly now that you struggled to make sense of before...
