A dream about wrists often signifies strength, flexibility, and adaptability. It's often not quite so simple though.

Your wrist supports your hand, allowing it to move and function, symbolizing your ability to handle situations in life. If the wrist is injured or restrained, it may indicate feelings of powerlessness or restriction in your waking life. A dream about someone else's wrist could suggest your perception of their abilities or limitations. It might also reflect your desire to connect with them on a deeper level, as wrists are often associated with emotional bonds, like when we hold hands or wear friendship bracelets.

Your wrist can be a somewhat rich and colorful dream concept to get one's head around. To say for sure, it's really necessary to really dig deep into the dreamer's life and current life scenario.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming about one's wrist, in the Freudian sense, could be a manifestation of the unconscious mind grappling with issues of personal autonomy and control.

It's a complex concept though... The wrist, a pivot point that enables hand movements, symbolizes our capacity to influence our surroundings. An uninjured wrist might signify a sense of empowerment, while a damaged one could denote feelings of impotence or constraint. Dreaming about another's wrist, on the other hand, could be a projection of your own feelings onto that person. It might also symbolize a desire for emotional intimacy or a deeper connection, as the wrist is often a site of physical contact and symbolic gestures, such as hand-holding or the exchange of bracelets.

Dreaming about your wrist can be a spiritual sign of your inner strength and adaptability. It's a symbol of your ability to navigate life's challenges with grace and flexibility. If the wrist is injured, it may suggest a spiritual blockage or a feeling of being restrained in your spiritual journey. Dreaming about someone else's wrist, on the other hand, could indicate a spiritual connection or bond with that person. It may also reflect your perception of their spiritual strength or limitations. This dream could be a call to deepen your spiritual connection with them, as wrists are often associated with emotional and spiritual bonds.
