What does it mean when you dream about jail?

Dreaming about being in jail usually reflects a sense of restriction one feels in one’s outer life, the limiting of one’s creativity. It could also indicate a sense of guilt or self-criticism. Alternatively, the dreamer may need to “put a lock on” certain actions and behavior. Dreaming about being the jailor is similar, though it shifts the focus to our own agency—we are the ones restricting ourselves.


1. A prison.
2. A building or place for the legal detention of persons.


, gaol
a place for the confinement of persons convicted and sentenced to imprisonment or of persons awaiting trial to whom bail is not granted


Dreaming about jail may make you think that you have done something immoral or illegal, or committed an act that merits punishment. You may also have a fear of being trapped emotionally or physically. If you are the jailer, you may have an unconscious desire to exert control over others or in a particular situation. Either way, this dream suggests that you have obstacles in your life that may not be easy to overcome.
