Kidnap Dream Meaning: From 10 Different Sources

A kidnapper takes a child and holds him or her for ransom. In this way, the child becomes the symbol of something treasured and valuable, such as innocence or possibility.

The ransom suggests that this quality is being forced as a sacrifice for something of more material value. Such a dream may arise when you are feeling like you must compromise your values in such a way to accomplish a goal.

If you are a parent, such a dream could also be a reflection of parental anxiety.

Psychological / emotional perspective: In dreams, we may find ourselves trying to kidnap someone, suggesting that we are trying to influence someone else, perhaps trying to absorb some quality that is not freely available, or making demands that they are not prepared to meet.

Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous

Material aspects: If we find ourselves being kidnapped within a dream, we are conscious of the fact that our own fears and doubts can make us victims. We feel out of control and perhaps need to ‘negotiate’ with the frightened part. We are being overcome by our own ‘demons’, which have ganged up on us and caused us to become insecure.

Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous

Dreams of being kidnapped or abducted reflect control issues and your fears of being negatively influenced or overpowered by an external force. This dream is also about transformation and metamorphosis from victimhood to empowerment.

If you are the one doing the kidnapping, you may be forcing your will onto someone else, or forcing yourself to do something that you know deep down is not good for you. See Goddess Persephone.

1- If we find ourselves being kidnapped within a dream, we are conscious of the fact that our own fears and doubts can make us victims. We are being overcome by our own “demons’, which have ganged up on us and caused us to become insecure.

2- In dreams we mav find ourselves trying to kidnap someone else and this would indicate, at its simplest level, that we are trying to influence someone else. It may also suggest that we are trying to absorb some quality from the other person which is not freely available.

3- Some sort of psychic theft may be symbolised here, or on a darker level a thread of spiritual vampirism may be running through the dreamer’s subconscious.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

If you were kid- napped in your dream, you are likely to be embar- rassed by the company you have been keeping; a change of companions would probably be bene- ficial. However, if you did the kidnapping, you are being warned to guard your valuables against theft or loss, and if you can’t do that, then be sure your insurance is in order. To dream of a kidnapping in which you were not personally involved is a sign of sudden important changes in the offing.

Kidnapped And Taken Hostage

If kidnapping features in your dream, this may suggest the desire to dominate or be dominated by another person. If you are the victim but don’t feel afraid, this could lend a sexual connotation to your dream. If you are held hostage in a dream, this could indicate that you feel someone has a hold on you, or that you are subject to some influence that prevents you from doing what you need to do. Hostage-takers often make demands for money, personal recognition and so on. Is there someone in your waking life who is placing unnecessary demands upon you, or making you feel guilty? In some hostage dreams, as in real life, a rapport develops between the victim and the hostage-taker; if this is the case, it could indicate a love-hate relationship in your waking life. Finally, might this kind of dream not also suggest that you are held hostage, not by a person, but by your fears?See also CHANGE AND CONFLICT; NEGATIVE EMOTIONS. ... kidnapped and taken hostage dream meaning

The Element Encyclopedia


The main theme in abduction dreams is fear. The dreamer may be afraid of losing a very important part of himself or of losing his safest and most familiar surroundings. Also, the dreamer may be afraid of leaving his home, childhood, familiar support group, or long standing ideas. These type of dreams may be most prevalent during times of psychological or physical transition and during stressful times of life when the future is somewhat uncertain. Consider the details of your dream and try to isolate or identify the fear that created the dream. Please refer to the page called Your Dreams and My Dreams in order to obtain a general understanding of how dreams could be interpreted.
