If you dreamt of being locked up, restrained or confined in some way by locks, ropes, chains or impossibly tight clothes, this might reflect feelings of great frustration in your waking life. Such dreams typically indicate that you are feeling frustrated because someone or something in your life is preventing you from realizing your potential or your ambitions.
If you saw who was trying to confine you in your dream, they may represent the person who is making you feel trapped.
Alternatively, you may be feeling trapped by some obligation, situation, deadening job or stifling relationship from which there is no escape. Your unconscious is urging you to find a solution and break free.
If you are gagged in your dream, this is a sign that something or someone has taken away your freedom of expression.
If you are chained up or locked up in a cell, such symbols could represent your own inhibitions; if this is the case, your unconscious is again urging you to break free from your self-imposed shackles. You may be fearful of making a decision in case you make the wrong one and, if this is indeed the case, your dreaming self is depicting you bound and fettered as a way of telling you that sometimes in life you need to take a risk and make a judgment call. Dreams in which you are confined in a small space but still able to move or crawl may point to the struggle of your creative energies to find expression in waking life. Is something or someone repressing your energy and is it time for you to break free? Dreams in which you are crawling through a tunnel also express anxieties about a challenging event in your waking life.
If you dream of falling into a pit, this is a reference in waking life to something or someone who is restricting your movements or thought.
If you fall into a trap, the implication is that this desperate situa—tion may be partly your own fault. A dream in which you are caught in a net may, however, have erotic connotations, as the symbol of the net is connected with femi—nine power.
If your horse is in reins or a harness in your dream, because the horse is traditionally a symbol of life and may represent an aspect of your personality, the reference may be to some frustration or confinement in waking life; this might be self-imposed or imposed by someone else, but either way it is preventing the full expression of your personality....

The healing may be physical, psychological, emotional or spiritual. By paying attention to this dream you may be able to identify the source of your pain, and where and how the healing needs to take place. Think about why you or someone else was in the hospital in the dream. You may ask yourself, “What is going on in the dream? What is the prognosis, and what is the cure?” Answering these questions in light of a situation or issue from your daily life could be very helpful and, at times, enlightening. Therefore, try not to get upset by your dream, but rather pay attention to its message. Superstition based dream interpretations suggest that if you are visiting a patient you will be receiving surprising news (good or bad), but if you are the patient, you may be currently overwhelmed by life and should ask others for help.

1- Depending on our attitude to hospitals, when one appears in a dream it can cither represent a place of safety, or a place where ones very being is threatened and we become vulnerable. Taken as a place of healing, it represents that aspect within ourselves that knows when respite is necessary from cares and troubles when we can allow ourselves to be cared for and nurtured and put back into one piece.
If we find hospitals threatening, it may be that we are conscious of the fact that we have to ‘let go’, to put ourselves at the mercy of others and allow things to happen for us, in order that a situation can be improved.

The discomfort that colors most people’s associations tends to overshadow the benevolence connected to them as places of healing.
A common reaction around hospitals is to fear them, adding a touch of irony to our relationship with the healing process. Healing is transformation, and the first step to any major change is the breakdown that precedes the breakthrough. Since the breakdown is the scary part, we avoid it, just as some people avoid hospitals in waking life.
It is easy to forget that in order for surgeons to heal a patient, they must first cut the person’s body open, creating a wound. And since not everyone who checks into a hospital is fortunate enough to check out, these places are indelibly connected to the fear of death and dying. However, remember that death is always followed by rebirth. In this way, being in or near a hospital in a dream is always going to indicate that some healing is either underway or necessary.
If you are the patient, then consider that your sense of self is undergoing a significant shift.
If you are a visitor, then the healing transformation is connected to a character aspect or particular way of being as embodied by the person you are going to see.
If you are playing the part of healer, the dream may be helping you step into that role in some area of life that is undergoing a transformation.
The fear or repulsion that is present in the dream will give you an idea of how much resistance you may be unconsciously engaged in.
