Something at the heart of the psyche is being constrained, imprisoned or in captivity and restrained by your own rigidity of thinking or being.  This may point to being unable to break free, doing time, carrying out a sentence of some sought and enduring a profound loss of freedom.  This can be a clear image into the unconscious of what you situation is psychically.  If you are wearing shackles or beginning a long sentence then things must be so much worse.

  • Do you feel ‘tied down,’ perhaps within a claustrophobic relationship or other burdensome responsibility?
  •  What are the circumstances of your imprisonment, is it a maximum or minimum-security prison?
  • Given that we are usually ‘sent to prison” the question must be asked as to whether someone else might be responsible for the conditions that have given rise to your dream.
