Dream Dictionary Meaning For Handcuffs

Dreaming of handcuffs when you have not seen them being put on often indicates that you feel that you are being held back in your waking life. This may be because your own attitudes are holding you back or it may be because you don't have the freedom to take your life in the direction that you wish to go.

If you see the handcuffs being put on and it is someone that you know that has done this then this is an indication that this particular person is holding you back in some way. Whether they are doing so intentionally or not is neither here nor there at surface level as the restriction you feel is the same either way. Although an unintentional intent on their part will probably be easier to rectify.

If it is someone that you don't know who has put the handcuffs on you then this can indicate that the situation is currently beyond your control or that there are unknown factors at work. If you feel that unknown factors may indeed be at work then you should consider asking for guidance in your dreams prior to going to sleep. If you fail to get the guidance that you asked for or do not understand what is being given to you then you should consider the possibility of getting a psychic reading to help clarify the issue.

If, on the other hand, it is you that is putting the handcuffs on somebody else then you should consider the possibility that you are being overly possessive with that person is concerned. It may be that you are not aware that your actions are coming across in this way.
