To free slaves in your dream implies that you are liberating an aspect of yourself that you have been suppressing or that you have previously not expressed.

If you dream that you are held captive, you may be controlling some aspects of your psychological dimension too much. Perhaps, you are preventing your self-expression or feel prisoner of your circumstances. You may also be rejecting your hidden potential or your true feelings. The cause can be that you have to face a new job, marriage, birth of a child… In any case, these things, for worse or for better, restrict your freedom. On other hand, maybe you need to show that you dominate others, especially your family and friends. You force them to act according to your will. Clearly, in this way, you will never reach happiness.
Dreaming that you are bound up expresses you will harvest love in your life.
