What does it mean when I have nightmares where I’m stuck in a coffin or tied down and I can’t breathe. Then a guy comes and cuts my throat, but only my throat. Can you tell me what this means?
So typical of nightmares. The exaggerated scenarios are your psyche’s way of getting you to acknowledge an emotional issue that you’re ignoring or unaware of. Well, the dreams have certainly gotten your attention!
I suspect the issue is about self-expression. A coffin, suffocating and being tied down are all symbols of being restricted in how you express your thoughts, feelings or needs. What’s more, the throat can symbolize speech, so someone cutting your throat means you feel “cut off” from the ability to express yourself.

The main question is: who or what is causing this block? It may be a person close to you who has a problem with your feelings. Or you may be doing this to yourself, especially if you’re afraid or ashamed to express certain emotions. For instance, if getting angry makes you uncomfortable, you may choose to suppress it rather than risk the disapproval of others by verbalizing it.
Still, expressing yourself is crucial to your emotional health. I suggest recording your daily experiences in a journal, which will help you get in touch with any feelings that need to be acknowledged. Then you can decide how to deal with them in a positive way that sets you free emotionally.
