Dream of being strangled: What meanings?



Dreaming about being strangled carries different meanings depending on the details of the dream, our current emotional state, as well as the variety of situations we face in our daily lives.



We need to investigate the things happening around us to make adequate sense of each of the details of the dream. If we talk about dreams that generate anxiety, this is definitely one of them. Dreaming of being strangled has different interpretations, although the most common represents getting out of a complicated situation we find ourselves in, even if the solution is a bit confusing.

A particular context is dreaming of being intentionally strangled, which can be a complicated dream to understand, since such an activity would be very bizarre in reality, but in our dream experiences, any situation can arise, too unreal though. 



Such a dream indicates the manifestation of conflicts that we do not know and cannot solve in our lives and the desire to disappear just so as not to have to face them. 

This does not mean that we think of putting an end to our life, but exclusively to our problems. You should work on yourself, take a break, exercise and meditate. It may be time for a change of routine.

Dreaming of being strangled, regardless of the means by which the choking occurs, is an unconscious manifestation representing various conflicts that we have avoided or from which we hide. We can't escape, the most suitable idea to improve our life is to face our problems.

Consider that every detail of the dream will be relevant for its interpretation, as well as the accumulation of circumstances that envelop us in our state of consciousness. 

Remember that our subconscious usually manifests situations that we want or have experienced, and also that we can live under certain dream codes. But these are just some interpretations of dreaming about being strangled, now let's see in more detail a particular dream context and its specific meaning.


Dream about being strangled by someone 

This indicates that we have to be careful of the bad energies generated by some people around us. To dream of a stranger choking you represents possible envy others have towards you, and ignoring the situation could cause you serious long-term damage. So don't get carried away by gossip or bad vibes.


Dream about being strangled by a friend 

This indicates a certain mental and emotional fatigue that we go through with certain people around us, especially the people we care about. We must be careful not to be overwhelmed by our friends and even our family. We may need a break and even a personal retreat. Take time for yourself to take care of your mind.




Dream about being strangled by a ghost 

It expresses personal insecurity towards others. The cause of this insecurity is not known, but it certainly has to do with your past experiences.

Dream about being strangled by a snake

It indicates that something in your life is suffocating you. It could be related to your love life, with a stuffy, breathless partner, or it could be due to really pressing work or family responsibilities. In this case, the best thing to do is to take a break. 

Unplugging from what's strangling you is the only way to see things from a new perspective and understand if there are solutions you haven't considered before. In case you could end a difficult situation with a clean break, do not hesitate to do so, your dream speaks volumes enough.

To dream that an acquaintance is choking you 

This dream proves that someone felt interest in you, but the main problem is that you don't share that kind of affection. , so you feel trapped without knowing how to repel it. You know he's not a bad person, but you can't see him as a possible romantic partner. 

The best thing in this case is always to be nice so as not to hurt his feelings, but still be honest with yourself and with him, because he deserves to have an answer.


Dream about a family member strangling you 

It is usually interpreted as a personal defeat like not being able to achieve certain goals, a failure that emerges arrogantly in dream contexts. 


Our family member represents the obstacle that has prevented us from achieving our goals. As long as we have life, we can continue to struggle to achieve our goals, or somehow channel our energies to continue growing as people.
