If the gang of kidnappers is scaring you, it means that your energies are moving in the wrong direction. This means negative things are waiting for you.

7. Dream about being trapped or locked in a room by the kidnapper

To be locked in a room by the kidnapper in the dream is a direct connection of feeling imprisoned in your waking life. It is usually linked to your job or career. If you have been working too hard lately, you might find yourself trapped in it.

However, if you see a ransom, it means that other people will turn to you for advice.

14. Dreams about being kidnapped multiple times

Keep your emotions under control. As you are emotionally alone, you will try to seek comfort from whoever approaches you.

21. Dream of being kidnapped and placed in prison or basement

The location where you dream of being kidnapped or where you are kept after abduction also tells a lot about your dream. So, when you dream of being kidnapped and placed in a prison or basement (basically any underground holding cell), it is a sign that someone wants certain information from you.

The person will make your life miserable until you give him what he wants and agree to change your deep-down beliefs.

22. Dream of kidnappers asking for ransom

Here, ransom means giving away money to the person who has been kidnapped. This means that you are undergoing a financial loss as money is being given away.

 The same thing will happen to you in your waking life too i.e., financial loss. Nobody has to get kidnapped for that. But it shows that you will participate in poor contracts or will make failed financial decisions. Debt collectors will be surrounding you. Your peace will be disturbed until they get their money back.

23. Dream of being kidnapped for no reason

If you have been kidnapped in your dream for no justifiable reason, it is because your inner sense is asking you to put more effort into your dreams. The subconscious is signaling you to not settle for less. If you work harder, you are capable of achieving your dreams.

Make sure there are no reasons in your surroundings that can distract you from your goals. Work with dedication and take a leap towards success.

24. Dream of being kidnapped again after escaping

To see yourself being kidnapped again and again after escaping in the dream is passing you an important message. Be cautious to note every detail of the dream. It is indicating to you the probable reasons why you keep landing up to the same situation again and again.

You might want to get rid of a person in your life that is now suffocating you. But you might not have the willpower to remove them completely from your life. This is why you keep getting trapped repeatedly.

25. Dream of being kidnapped with no captor

When you have no captors in your dream and are still kidnapped, it denotes that escaping is within your reach. But the reason why you still stay kidnapped is that you don’t believe in your abilities. You lack the confidence and courage to face the situation. So, whenever you get such dreams, the first thing that you should do is to gather courage.

There can be instances when you need someone’s help to break the shackles. If that’s the case, reach out to your friends and family members for assistance.

26. Dream of being kidnapped on Friday night

Friday nights are considered happening as you look forward to the weekend. But if you dream of being kidnapped on a Friday night, this indicates that you are about to experience some family conflicts in the near future.

27. Dream about being kidnapped by ex-boyfriend

If you dream about being kidnapped by your ex-boyfriend, it is a sign that you are still emotionally involved with him. Although you might have walked your paths away from each other, your hearts are still attached. At least, yours is!

Dreams about Kidnapping – General Interpretations

SUMMARY
Kidnapping dreams mostly imply the dreamer’s vulnerability and insecurity. Other than that, it is also symbolic of struggle or obstacles in your real life.

To remind you, dreams are often interconnected with your emotions. Whatever you feel in your real life gets manifested in your dream by your subconscious. Given below is a list of emotions that can lead to kidnapping dreams.

This problem is majorly found in newlywed couples while they try to fulfill the needs of different people. Controlling others is difficult so we instead give up self-control. This leaves us with nothing but regret in the future.

You are vulnerable

Nobody is perfect. We all have our own set of weaknesses and vulnerabilities. It is usual for us to be insecure about these weaknesses. But if you fear it too much, it can lead to problems.

It is common to feel to transform your weaknesses into strengths or how people like things to be. But things are not always under our control. Sometimes, it is good to take it as a sign and embrace your flaws. Once you embrace it, it can gradually turn into your strength.

You don’t feel secure or safe

All of us like to be surrounded by people with whom we feel safe and secure. However, there are things that make us lose this sense of security. It might be because a thief broke into your house or because you lost your home due to a natural incident. Maybe your car got stolen or your account got hacked.

Such a dream can be a short-lived description of visual images stored in your memory that is flashing back.

This is why you will always fear whatever comes your way. You will be filled with unpleasant thoughts and excessive emotions.

You need to change your perception

There are so many things in life that are just not in our control: business success, successful relationships, or even children. At this time, you just need to remember that the only thing you can control is your response.

See things as they are and remind yourself that circumstances cannot defeat you. Your perception has a lot to do with it. These kidnapping dreams and just a manifestation of your subconscious mind being helpless about the circumstances.

It’s time to regain control!

When you feel out of control, don’t sit idle. Take actions. Efforts always work. Think deeply about all the people who don’t support your goals. Focus on all the other factors that are standing on your path towards your goal. Remove those obstacles. Manage your time efficiently and prioritize things to follow your passion.

All of us have fears but with determination and courage, we can regain our control in our life.

Try to remove obstacles

To stick to one’s beliefs and ethics is important. When you fail at something, you lose control over things. That is why it is extremely important for us to watch out for any obstacles on our way.

If we do this, we can gain control over the obstacles prior to the problem and build a strong foundation. Avoid being lazy. Be active and keep yourself motivated to focus on important things in life.
