Seeing hands in a dream can have several different meanings
In our waking lives we use our hands for many different things: accomplish work, create things, do our favorite hobbies and to connect with other people.
If your hands are tied up in a dream: This represents your feelings of helplessness in a situation during waking life.
If you dream of washing your hands: Your subconscious may be trying to tell you that you may need to rid yourself of a negative influence in your life. Alternately it could mean that you are attempting to wash away guilt you are experiencing.
If you dream of holding someone’s hand: This suggests that you are trying to connect more deeply with another person, or aspect of yourself. For example, if you dream of holding your boyfriend or husband’s hand this implies that you want to feel closer to him and more deeply connected. If you dream of holding the hand of a nameless character in your dream that you do not recognize, you are probably trying to reconnect with some aspect of yourself. So if you are holding a child’s hand you are trying to connect better with your inner child.
If you look at your hands in your dream you can enter into lucid dreaming and have more control over your dreams.
