Being Kidnapped in Dreams

Perceiving yourself as being kidnapped in your dreams is symbolic of your fear of being held against your will. As you are taken from your home or your usual comfortable environment, you become a victim as a result of this twisted act. Even though you wish to leave, there is no possible way to. Your freedom is restricted and those you hold dear are faraway from you. Thus, dreaming of being kidnapped is the manifestation of the fear of being held against your will, to be helpless to where you want to go. Being kidnapped and unable to gain back your control of your life, you feel vulnerable with your destiny controlled by others.

I hear a bit of a clang in the storage room, I go into the storge room and see a black silhouette of a man outside the sliding glass door. i run and try to tell the older girl but my voice is gone, i cant say a word. i pull on her arm and was pointing rapedly twords the storage room. we see a shadow of a man walking into the kitchen, his face is masked so i can’t see who it is. He grabs me, and puts a really heavy jacket on me, the older girl takes something very hot off the stove and throws it on to him. She runs out the door nd he chases her. i stand there, paralized in fear. he comes back and i’m ready to fight. I try to kick but he grabs my foot, i throw a punch but the jacket feels like its pulling my arms back. He picks me up and i wake up just as he walks out the door.

  6. I have been having the same dream for the past few nights and what I don’t understand about it is that I’m not the person in my dream, it’s kind of confusing my “sister” and I get kidnapped and tortured but the people in my dream I’ve never met or seen before and I’m not myself in the dream either I’m a different girl but I am one of the people who gets kidnapped and tortured.

  7. Hi my name is Amber. For the past few nights I have had the same dream where I’m staying in this beautiful mansion, I’m in my room picking out an outfit to where and then I’m kidnapped by I don’t know who. I’m held in this room with 7 other people. They keep arguing about something but idk what they are saying. I end up escaping. I run down. Like 12 flights of stairs to get to the kitchen where I bump into someone and I ask her where I can find my boyfriend(who doesn’t look like my real life boyfriend, but I can’t see his face in the dream) and my friends and she points to the door. I run through the door and I fall onto the floor and everyone looks at me and is relieved to see me, but the people who kidnapped me walk into the room demanding that I’m handed over to them and then there is a fight and my boyfriend walks over to me holds out his hand and them I wake up. What does it mean?

  8. I was inside my grandmas house on the second floor using her bathroom, when I looked outside and saw a pale middle aged woman waving at me and smiling- however this made me feel incredibly uncomfortable.
    Then I was in a car on my grandmas drive in the back seat waiting for my uncle to get in, when i saw her staring and smiling through my car window.
    Startled, I tapped at the glass and asked her to leave, but before I knew it there were two big guys with her that launched me out the car, and then the car disappeared.
    I saw my uncle race out the house to help me, swung at them both with force but they weren’t knocked down, and in turn he then disappeared too.

    I was then plunged into my grandmas garden -a place that holds several happy memories of my childhood- with these two big guys holding me by my shoulders, surrounded by what I could only describe as a rough looking family, all different ages but all wearing black leather jackets and had dirty blonde hair.
    I then saw this a mans hand slide up my dress, I screamed for him to leave me alone but he persisted and laughed along with his family.
    As I was stood restrained and forced to engage in a sexual act I reached out to members of this family for help, which made things much worse, and it seems aggravated them as they’d punch me in return.

    Only inches away from the warmth of my grandmas doorstep I tried to drag myself back, but the more people I pushed through, double them amount would appear.
    I started to ware, my voice started to fade. All colours I could see gained a red tinge, and as I noticed My shoulders were pulled up by the same man, forced to stand upright, and things only that can be described as bear traps were dropped onto my head from the sky, that cut into my skull but didn’t clamp, just impaled slightly and fell off, along with heavy bags of flour ( odd I know).. That’s when I felt my spine starting the shatter, my neck aching from the weight that was falling on my head.
    I heard somebody snigger and said that I wasn’t going to last much longer.
    I saw a hand go under my dress once more but it got withdrawn rapidly as it was covered in blood. I wiped my eyes, that also started pouring with blood.
    I though about how much I loved my boyfriend, and as my knees weakened and my vision started to fade, I woke up, sobbing.
    So vivid, and I’ve dreamed about this family before trying to kidnapp me and shooting my boyfriend before hiding him, and they always wear the same clothes.

  9. A friend and I went to a girl we met in schools house, she was Korean. The house looked exactly like my childhood home, inside and out, but it was situated across the road from my school near to another friend’s bus stop. After we talked with her for a while, my friend left and I was right behind him, however I was struggling to get my shoe tied and the girl’s mother closed the front door. She invited me to stay a little longer, so I did, because I didn’t want to be rude.

    She took me upstairs, we had a renovation in my old house and the room she had taken me to used to be the attic, and led me to a room where she said, “I’ll be back in a little, going to get some tea for us.” But, on the way up the stairs, I noticed some rather peculiar holes in the walls. I didn’t say anything, because I couldn’t see in them, they were basically black. However, I did get a glance of a face looking out and mouthing something.

    After a while, the girl’s mother was still not back. So, I decided to go look for her. On the way back down the stairs, I saw a man who looked to be extremely muscular and almost like a body guard. This scared me, so I went to gather my things and put my shoes on. The man followed me and asked, “what are you doing?”, and I told him, “I’m going home to get something.”

    The man looked rather frustrated at this, so I started to walk out the door. He shouted, “NO!”, and punched me in the face. I hit him back, and heard voices coming from upstairs, telling me to run. So, I ran to my bike. I started cycling away. Then, I got knocked down by a car while I was going across a road. The man cam and took me back inside, but this is where my dream ends.

  10. I had a dream that i was with my boyfriend on vacation and then I got kid napped by this small Asian lady and a big black dude and a big white dude and I was trying to escape but I couldn’t they would catch me everytime and they flew me to china . It was me and 2 other girls . Well they flew us to china to be escorts to there guys attending a wedding and so I pretended to be having fun at the ceremony and they gave us rice to eat and I saw the rice it was almost real and then I started thinking I miss my family and my boyfriend and I didn’t know how long I was going to be there. I didn’t want to go through the whole day in a wedding not knowing what will happen so I made a run for it and ran into the building as fast as I could and I heard the woman scream out behind me “she’s getting away go get her now I want her here ” I ran yelling to everyone to help me out i was kidnapped but nobody understood me until I ran into this security room and locked it but they found me and they were trying to tear down the room and I remember crying so hard that I just wanted to be home and that’s when I woke up I’ve been having these dreams a lot lately I don’t know why

  11. I am curious about this dream I had and am not really sure as to what it means. Wondering what others thoughts were on it. I only remember bits and pieces but I remember being kidnapped by a guy I don’t know who he was cause he was wearing a mask the whole time(a really scary mask I might add) I just knew he was a man. He was torturing me in my dream.. pulling my finger nails off and I was screaming and crying in the dream but also felt myself screaming and crying in real life and then I woke up I felt like I was having a heart attack and I was all sweaty. And ideas on what this could mean?

  12. I had a dream that my beloved elder sister is kidnapped at some public event. We looked for her almost everywhere but we couldn’t find her. The place was new it wasn’t something that I’ve visited before. In my dream I have a dream, where my sister tells me that pls help me out soon, The AC in the room is cold my hands are freezing- I was holding her hand, I felt her hands they were cold she also gave me hint that there is a telephone in the room. Once I go to my mother she says it’s getting late well look for her later that’s when my other sisters freak out and say that no she needs to be found NOW! And I just woke up

  13. I dreamt of being kid napped by multiple people they Too my brother me and more random people and then the dream was also weird because it felt like a part two to a dream I have had before but it wasn’t recent like the dream felt annual though and I survived from the last dream but I had no confidence that I would this time because in the dream its like a game but people end up dying and this time my brother was there and I was terrified for the both of us I remember the numbers from the adress but not the street …I’m so confused

  14. Oh goood god.
    Just right now i woke up from a dream… i was running with a boyfriend (a man i went on one date with last weekend 😮) through an arid town not unlike vegas (sans casinos but was abandoned hotels) however streets were bare & ppl were running from some kind of killer deforming plague..somehow we knew if we got to a building without the rain hitting us we would not get disease . We had to get in building and get to the top to get the sun on our face… basicallyrunning from disease zombie plague in form of clouds and rain
    I get into abandoned resort & make my way to the attick.. i have to squeeze my body through tiny window panes to get through maze of windows into other rooms until reach attick
    I get there and there are several other girls in room facing the sun. Suddenly we all get caught by a group of men who kidnap us. Cut scene and we are in a car with these men who tell us we all belong now to the one man who is a muslim who will shoot us if we try to escape. To proive this he pulls out gun and holds to all our heads…i belueve im about to die and then he shoots another girl in the chest n she dies in front of us. He takes us all to high end restaurant where we all sit with him like a damn harram. Suddenly i am trying to win his trust whilst telkung girls we have to escape and we only have one chance. They agree and i tell them whilst man busy talking to ither ppl we are gng to run..just sneak out n run like fuck to her car which is outside
    (Now in reality not dream…)I wake ubruptly

  15. I dreamt I was a nurse in America (I’m from the UK) and me and 2 others had been kidnapped. We were being held in a quiet hospital room by Hannibal Lector. He was making us cook and eat fried chicken and after 3 days he let us go. The scariest part was running away down the corridor. We burst into a staff room where everyone was on the lunch break and called the police. I saw Hannibal walk past the room so followed him outside.
    Along the corridor he had shed different items of clothing so I chased quicker but he had disappeared by the time I got outside. I was shouting “where are you” on my knees when he drove past in a taxi watching me but I did not see him.
    I woke up at this point and had clearly been tossing and turning in bed.

  16. Well I am 30 I have no kids would love to though in my dream I had a baby girl And I was emotionally crazy over someone taking my first and only child well they would not let me go to work and the police was telling me nothing so I was having a nerves break down and on the end of my dream it was someone I no took my baby from me I ended up finding her and she looked at me with her pretty blue eyes and smiled this was so emotional still woke up upset because I would love to have a healthy baby hurts my heart more then anything

  17. I dreamt that I was out with a group of friends hanging out and eating lunch and my friends were teasing me and a girl about liking the same guy and asked the guy who he liked best. He answered that it was the girl and then they started dating then suddenly his chair flipped backwards and caused him to go down a hole that then closed before we can do anything. We all began to calmly go searching for him while his then girlfriend left him for another guy when as I was searching on my own when a guy comes flying and attempts to kidnap me by grabbing my wrist and trying to fly away when suddenly one of my friends saved me and pulled me down. The man that could fly did not give up and continued to attempt to kidnap me while the same friend and another friend saved me multiple times till we get inside the library and the flying man decided not to go in for some reason. I began walking out with my two friends down a path where we passed a building and ended up in a digging/ plant site where multiple of monsters were there and began grabbing my friends and I got scared and ran inside the building where there were more monsters. I just gave in and allowed them to take us to a room that was apparently the tortyre room. The room was rusty with a few lights and a cage in the corner with a couple of picnic tables in the middle. A small monster came in and began talking to, a thing similar to face-timing, to what I assume the leader of how he is going to torture us but in a weird way because he made one guy eat a burger but I can only assume that he was Vegan.

  18. I had this nighmare where it was night (all my nightmares that involve kidnappings are at night when I’m alone) and I was sitting on a lawn chair in this open grass field near a vacant street and my sister was on the other side of the trees not too far. I was writing in my notebook with my pen about deforestation (I watched Cowspiracy the night before RECOMMEND!) as I was writing, this black Range Rover drove close and stopped the car as soon as they saw me and opened the door and that’s when I started to run and call my sister’s name but the distance between me and her became more and more and I was moving slower. Can you help me understand what it means?

  19. As this dream is most likely a result of the uncomfortable and new surroundings last night – I find that it had gotten to an extreme that could be from being slightly traumatized recently or stress.. Anyway,

    When I dreamt, it was like reality. I was held hostage by four men at a hotel. I would bang at the window and yell out the door when I got the chance. Even though I was loud, no one seemed to bother with my cries for help. By this point I decided to play along and maybe they’d let me go. But it just progressed into rape from three of the men. While one idly stood by who’s of which face I remember the clearest. Each man was different. One had been in a explosion (?) and had parts of him falling off. I never got away, just woke up a laid there for a while. I don’t think dreaming in gored detail like this is healthy.

  20. I wasn’t in my apartment. I was at a house. My family and I were in a house. I was sleeping in a room. I couldn’t sleep because I kept hearing noises and voices. When I lifted my head to follow the noises and voices, I see a man cutting what looked like bar wires from the window. I screamed what the hell you doing. The man got startled and begins to run but his partner said to come back. They both approach the window and I’m screaming for my mom. They want to take me. The second guy mocks my screams and comes towards me. At this point I’m off the bed heading to the door. I know it’s a dream and force myself to wake up. It’s so unsettling and feel scared.

  21. My nightmare was about me my brother and sister being in this house and we where all tied up in different rooms in some house by a fat ladie and some guy then some how I untied myself and got free while they where killing people in the other rooms so. Then I was trying to untie my brother to save him and told him to run I went to try to save my sister but then I woke up from my dream crying and scared.

  22. My dream was about some guy kidnapping my friend, Michelle and i one day, then he made us his personal prostitutes. He wouldn’t beat up Michelle but he’d always beat me up cause I always tried to escape. Until one day while he was driving, we got into a big wreck. I survived but Michelle didnt. My mom found me and had me sent to an island where no one knew who I was but I missed my girlfriend (yes, im lesbian) and she would never answer my calls so I snuck on a boat back to where I’m from, made it to her job, found out she had moved jobs, (I’m doing all of this while my face is beat up from the abuse and the car wreck so everyone kept staring), went to her new job just so she can tell me that she met another girl and she loved her and she was sorry about all I’ve been through but she didn’t want to lose her. So I left with nothing… and in the end the guy who tortured me found me crying and beat me to death.

  23. I dreamt that I was getting ready to walk out the door to go to work and a man pulled up in a white van and said he was there to tell me about a certain product he was selling. I told him I wasn’t interested and thanked him and started to shut my door. In the dream my husband and I had some items that we were selling outside of our garage. The man began looking at the items and was interested in a high chair. I told him the price and he just seemed to stall. I started walking towards the garage to put the items back in so I could leave, still waiting for him to leave. He started walking back to his van very slowly until I was outside my door then all of a sudden another male came around the corner and grabbed me and picked me up. I started kicking and clawing at his face. I tried to scream but nothing would come out. Then I woke up.

  24. I just had an awful dream i woke up crying. I had stolen something, something sort of bad and my friend (no one i actually no in real life) was getting the blame so i owened up and said thag i stole it… the next bit is a blur to remember but i was told by these men that i had to go with them and cuz i thought it was my punishment i went with them. They were in black suits. Anyway i cant remember where they took me but i hated it and i couldnt cope in their and i managed to get away after what seemed like forever but then one of the men walked out the room next to what i was in and he caught me and put me back. Hen his bit was clear, very clear, i got away again and this time it was in the scene of an alley way near where i live. I say a van and alot of those men getting out but i kept running down he alley way and i saw my friend (real life friend) and i was saying “abbi, come with me, help please!” but she said she cant cuz she has to take her brother to he park so i kept funning and when i got to the end of the alley i looked back to see if i could see the men and hey were running after me but they were a fair distance away from me but i looked to where i was gonna go next and 2 of the men were at the end of the road bit.. they didnt see me so i ran into the forest bit. I didnt realise how but i ended up hiding behind a small tree fhat 3 of the men were. Next to the tree there was a slope, one that i THOUGHT would be deep enough formme to hide down but it was parctically infront of the men but i risked it and found myself in a tiny hole. They saw me and then i just burst out crying and begging them to let me go “please let me go! Ill do anything please! If u want money ill get it! Please what do you want from me?!” One of the men nelt infront of me and lifted my chin up and said “i want you to fag yourself”. Then i was so scared i just frose then it was as tho i had a picture building up in my head of me doing it but thag went and i started begging again… then i woke up, i was petrified so i googled what it could mean and i havent found anyone have a dream anything like this for an explanatkon so id love it if you could help me cuz im scared and im under 13 to which makes it more scary
