Dreams present a safe environment to explore conflict and crisis. When the setting of a dream involves gallows where someone is to be hung - the message can be that you are sabotaging some aspect of yourself. Examine the character that is being hung to see if it might represent a side of you that is feeling suffocated or unexpressed. Hanging is also associated with being in a state of suspension, while something suspended in the air can represent an opportunity that you are not seeing. Being hung can suggest how you may be harboring a sense of guilt that is undermining your ability to stand up for yourself.
