Dreaming of being stuck in a house

Dreaming of being stuck in a house

Dear Janet Louise,
I dream my family are stuck in our house because people are trying to kill us and torture us. We try to escape but we can’t. In this dream it’s all men trying to do this to us, and I am scared. What does this mean? Even thinking about it when I am awake makes me scared.

Dear Chrissina,
Your dream is suggesting your emotions are being locked away; you are losing your identity. You are feeling helpless and don’t know how to stand up for yourself. You are in need of healing. Get in tune with yourself and your senses. There are changes ahead, so look at which direction you would like to travel in, and take charge. Stop avoiding the situation, but face it head-on – positive action is required.
