DREAM DICTIONARY - Chain :Chains are a strong metaphor. The dreams we have are often triggered by extreme emotions. We do tend to exaggerate how bad things are. If someone is dominating you then the chains could represent that feeling of domination and subservience. Think of ways you might use the phrase "I will not live my life in these chains" or "she is chained to him".
