Dream Symbol


A chain can represent limitations put in place by an authority or by you.

Dreaming that you are chained up could mean:

  • You're feeling that someone is trying to control, limit, or deny you freedoms
  • You're feeling that you're limiting yourself, such as with too much self-discipline, narrow thinking, or limited beliefs

Something being chained shut, such as a gate, could represent:

  • Security or safety
  • A feeling of being denied access (such as to a person's feelings they don't want to share)
  • A recent situation where you felt like something was "off limits" to you
