The "dagger of the mind" is only one of many psychological manifestations in the play. Macbeth feels paralyzed by his inner conflict and guilt. Macbeth laments the loss of his mental stability, "Macbeth shall sleep no more". His tormented conscience admires Duncan who is now at his eternal rest and laments his own psyche, which plagued with guilt and anxiety.
