When we dream of kidnappings or escapes, it is often our subconscious mind’s way of dealing with something unpleasant that happened or is currently happening in our waking life. Often times it is something burdensome that we want nothing more than to escape it.
Kidnapping in dreams could be symbolic of a feeling of entrapment. You may feel like you are stuck in a situation, job, or relationship that is preventing you from living your life the way you want to. You may also be feeling like someone is trying to take away your identity or sense of self.
Escaping, on the other hand, symbolize a need to avoid responsibility or our desire for freedom. When you are escaping in a dream, you either want to avoid something, or you no longer want to do what you have been doing until now; you want a change that brings more freedom and less commitment.
A dream of being kidnapped and escaping means that you are looking to break free from something in your life, whether it be an obligation, a commitment, or a situation. If you are feeling trapped in your life, this dream could indicate that you are looking for a way out or you want to make a major life change.
The symbolism of being kidnapped and escaping can also represent the need for a new direction in life. You may be feeling restricted and confined by your current situation (for example, you can’t travel because of work or can’t express love publicly because you love someone of the same gender) and are looking for a way to break free.
The dream is likely telling you that it is time to take control and make a change. If you are in a difficult situation that you can change and have control over, this dream indicates that it is time to take action and run away from anything that makes you feel like you are being held.
If it’s a recurring dream, it’s your subconscious urging you to make a change and stop feeling like a prisoner.
The act of being kidnapped and escaping in a dream could represent feeling limited or restricted in some way, particularly when it comes to religion. This could mean that you feel like your religious beliefs are being held back by certain obstacles, such as people or social media.
It could also indicate that you feel like you have little control over your spiritual life or that you’re not able to practice your faith freely for some reason. I personally see the symbolic act of escaping in your dream as a sign that you need to find a faith-based path that resonates with your beliefs and values (and this path does not necessarily have anything to do with religion.)
