Focusing on the neck in a dream can represent feeling over burdened. Something can be serving as a 'pain in the neck' or you might be 'sticking your neck out' in terms of taking chances. The idea of 'being yoked' along with its other associations can make the neck a symbol of enabling behavior. Putting something around your neck can be a symbol of restriction or a lack of freedom in movement. If it is a pendant or necklace, you can be attempting to make your individuality more clear to others. See also Anatomy and Body Parts.
