The detailed meaning of the dream…
The direction of your neck in a dream or noticing the side of a neck is an important clue to the meaning. When you focus on the front or sides of the neck it is representative of being a forward thinker or capitalizing on your feelings/emotions. It can also be a sign of trust. If you notice the neck of someone you are interested in, then it is a sign of mutual attraction.
When you look at the back of someone’s head, it means you need to turn them around and make them listen to you. You may feel that they are ignoring you or suppressing your feelings towards them. Feeling something on the back of your neck can indicate that you need to watch your neck or be careful who you answer to in the real world. Something like, look who you stick your neck out for… it’s a warning.
The length of the neck is also important. A neck that is growing or long is indicative of a high level of confidence and making good decisions when it comes to networking or social issues. The opposite is true for a short or shrunken neck.
When you feel tension in your neck or feel choked by your neck, the psyche is trying to tell you that there are relationships and people around you who are taking advantage of you. You are being forced to be a certain way or you are having beliefs that are pushed down your throat. When there is someone specifically strangling you in a dream, then this is a direct message for you to stay away or avoid this person. This person is likely to be a problem for you. Do not ignore this sign in a dream! Similarly, if you are hung around your neck in a dream, it is a warning for you to keep an eye on the people around you and be careful who you trust. Someone is probably trying to get you into trouble or waiting to take advantage of you.
In very violent dreams, there will sometimes be visions of your head being cut off from your neck, as with a sword or guillotine. When the throat is cut you must be aware that your opinions are not heard or that your voice is not heard as well. Because the neck is where the vocal cords are and controls speech, it is sometimes a representation of our ability to communicate, being able to express what we want, as well as levels of confidence. These areas of your life need to be focused when you have neck dreams as well.
When you tie something around your neck in a dream, the color and the object is very important to interpret it as well. For example, if it’s a red tie, it’s likely associated with feelings of power or passion regarding an issue in the workplace.
