Dreams Related To Handcuffs

Seeing someone being handcuffed

The image of someone being arrested or put in handcuffs is often seen by those who are struggling for control or who wish to possess some power. The power to influence or change a particular situation in reality for the better is an underlying theme, according to dream workers. Love is a powerful motivator in this case, be it familial love for a partner or children or platonic love for a friend or humanity in general.

Being handcuffed by police

The act of being restrained or handcuffed by law enforcement officers often means something is controlling or limiting you in reality. As such, your subconscious is searching for release from this oppression. Whether or not you would succeed is not clear by this symbol alone, but perhaps it may draw attention to your plight and encourage you to make your own way.
