Choking can indicate spiritual conflict and restraint. Choking in a dream highlights that we need to learn wisdom ? when to speak and when to remain silent. Being choked suggests that we are being stifled by people or circumstances and are not in control of either. Choking on food suggests that there is something unpalatable in our lives. When we find ourselves choking in a dream we are coming up against our inability to express ourselves appropriately. There is some conflict between our inner and outer selves, perhaps some indecision over whether we should speak out or remain silent.
