Smothering

(dreams)
Dreaming that you are having difficulty breathing and are in danger of dying as a result may carry important messages for the dreamer. This type of a dream experience is usually very frightening, and at times people are awakened from their dream due to the fear. This dream may have several different explanations and the catalysts may be forces from either within the individual’s emotional and psychological makeup or circumstances on the outside of the individual. The suffocation is either due to internal forces or an external situation. The dreamer may experience great difficulties when it comes to free self-expression. They may have difficulties in expressing their fear, anger, love, or any other powerful emotion and be literally choking on them in their dream. Choking in your dream suggests that you are having problems in communicating your thoughts, needs, and feelings. Additionally, smothering may imply that the dreamer cannot accept certain situations in life and is feeling suffocated by a current problem. Accurate interpretation of this dream requires consideration of all the details in it; think about your daily life and those things that cause you great stress and restrict your freedom. Finally, try to connect your dream with your daily life experiences and unlock the symbolism that the dream holds for you.
