Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

In ancient dream lore, dreaming of being kidnapped or seeing a kidnapper reflects your need to be independent and enjoy some freedom in your waking life.

I have spoken about kidnapping in a few other dream meanings and I will leave a link to these articles at the bottom of this article. I want to talk about the kidnapper and how they are portrayed in your dream as this can provide a “clue” as to the symbols and meaning. There are many different motives of kidnapping and why this can appear in the dream. The kidnapper could be attracted to material possessions, especially in societies that are renowned for kidnapping, which is connected to your material possessions in life. Sometimes we are programmed through the television, such as soap operas or films which glorify kidnapping, cheating, and lying. This can affect our dream state. Many people who have contacted me have also dreamt of supernatural kidnappings, such as being taken by aliens. In this dream meaning, I am going to discuss the dream regarding the actual kidnapper. 

In dream psychology, dreaming of a kidnapper can refer to your fear of taking a specific responsibility. A kidnapper spiritually in a dream can, however, be a symbol of good luck and good fortune. Dreaming of a kidnapper suggests that lately, you may have been dealing with feelings of inferiority as well as fear of not having to give up on something important to you. If you are being kidnapped in your dream, this indicates that those fears and doubts can make you a victim of your own thoughts and feelings. Your inner demons are ruling you at the moment.

What is the 1930s dream lore dream interpretation?

I like to include some interesting passages from some of the old books I have on dream meanings. I will list here what people believed in the 1920/the 1930s in regard to dreaming of being kidnapped or seeing the kidnapper. If you see a kidnapper in your dream, this could be an omen that soon you might decide to get married soon. Kidnapping another person in a dream indicates that in the real-life you are trying somehow to influence the person who has kidnapped in the dream. A kidnapper can also refer to someone stealing your soul. Dreaming of a kidnapper that kidnaps someone in your family means that you might make serious mistakes in your business, especially in the property business. In general, the kidnapping of a female in a dream portends an unexpected marriage. Being kidnapped means that you are having a hard time accomplishing whatever your heart desires. If in your dream you are a kidnapper and you kidnap someone this indicates that you are prone to take by force things that in reality do not belong to you and this will not bring you too many benefits. The kidnapping of a child in your dream foretells unexpected luck ahead. Dreaming that a kidnapper has kidnapped a public person indicates that you have some discontent to express.
