Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Dreaming about a gaol or any other way that restricts your freedom of movement does not refer to your physical being locked or restricted in reality, but rather to your soul and spiritually being confined by your ways of thinking. Being spiritually locked up in your life leads to dreaming about situations in which you are not free, even having nightmares on this matter.

A gaol can refer to a confined condition in regard to your psychic, or you feeling tied up in regard to a situation from your waking life.

In your dream you may have

  • You are in a gaol.
  • A friend in a gaol.
  • A person you do not know in a gaol.
  • Lots of people in a gaol.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • Do not trap yourself anymore.
  • You should apply a more realistic thinking.
  • Take hold and responsibility of your life.

Detailed dream interpretation

If you dream of a gaol, this is the omen of traps you set to yourself, and that the complications in your emotional, spiritual and material situation are the result of these traps. The dream suggests captivity and it refers to your fear of punishment. Another interpretation of this dream refers to your need to not listen anymore to bad advice that entraps you.

A gaol suggests that your feelings may be trapped by a limited mind and body, and this is your unconscious’ way to show you this issue, and to remind you that you should apply a more realistic thinking. From a spiritual point of view, the gaol represents your denial and refusal to take hold and responsibility of your life.

In the Arab tradition, the gaol displayed in a dream suggests that you should encounter an unexpected surprise in regard to attaining security in your work. If in your dream you are not in the gaol, but you see it from outside, it means that your hardship and difficulties at work will progress in the right direction. In the Western tradition, the gaol is the omen of quarrels, defamation, and broken promises of which you should beware. You might encounter mistrust and bad luck in the near future.

It is said that if a girl dreams of a gaol, in the real life she is going to marry. But if she dreams she is locked in a deserted house, a barn or a remote and isolated place, it is possible to become seriously ill in the near future.
