These dreams usually indicate frustrations you may be feeling in your waking life.
They could be equated to a dead-end job you are in, someone holding you back in your career advancement, or a relationship in which you may feel trapped.
You may feel that you are faced with no choice in a situation in your waking life or that you are facing difficulty in making up your mind about something.
To dream of trying to escape a situation or room may represent your eagerness or desperation to change your waking life circumstances. Dissatisfaction with the way things are.
Finding an easy way out may not an option for you. Your wish to avoid something unpleasant. Trying to get away from something you feel stuck with.
This can be a very serious dream and you need to be very aware of what you is going on in your daily life. Being trapped in a dream indicates that you are in a physical trap or some kind of dilemma, and are trying to get out of it. Because you did not escape in your dream, it indicates that the problem still exists in the physical realm.
It can be anything:
- A business deal
- A personal relationship
- Problems with schoolwork
- A project that you cannot figure out how to complete
If you dream that you are trapped and cannot escape this typically means that you feel emotionally trapped in some way during waking life and you are unsure of how to escape the situation.
Dreaming of Other People Being Trapped
It is also possible you may have had dreams of friends or family members being trapped. These can be very frightening and vivid dreams that stay in our minds for a very long time.
