Dreambook of doors
You see a door
The meaning of a dream in which you see a door can be understood in several ways: as something that protects what is inside, as protection from what is undesirable or dangerous, and as an obstacle that prevents you from getting something.
You want to open the door
The dream means you are trying to protect yourself from people who want to harm you. This dream suggests that you should only trust some and that it is better to avoid explaining or revealing secrets to third parties.
You walk through the door.
The dreambook explains the dream’s meaning as the intention to overcome all obstacles and limitations to achieve what you want.
The door may mean something that prevents you from continuing your work or makes it difficult to achieve some of your desires. However, keep this obstacle from stopping you. It is worth overcoming it.
A dream is a prediction of wish fulfillment. If dreaming about an open door, you know what will be behind it, and it is something pleasant, you may have the opportunity to make favorable financial deals.
If there is something unpleasant behind the door, you must first look at yourself before looking at what is behind the door.
This is a stage in your life where some people want to help you, but you don’t see it. Help can come in very different forms – remember that. The dream predicts opportunities you do not take advantage of, so they may suddenly disappear and never appear again.
The dream also means that a person is preparing the way for you to succeed or change your life. Prepare well for discussions about a new company or other significant changes.
If the door is in a building that interests you, it means that a job change is coming. If they are in an old building, it means that help or some proposal for change will arrive from your family and significantly change your life.
If the door is where you feel fear or phobia, the dream predicts that the current problems will end, but only with effort on your part.
A door that cannot be closed
The dreambook suggests that the coming changes are inevitable and irreversible. Be prepared for this and find good things in every situation. Trust your loved ones.
If, in your dream, you saw or tried to enter through a closed (locked) door, you will achieve victory and positively end something you fought for. A friendly person may emerge victorious from some situation.
A dream can also mean you feel insecure and afraid to get something. You don’t dare to open the door and find out what’s inside – or maybe you know what’s inside, and that’s why you don’t want to open it.
You should worry less about what will happen or what you will discover behind the door. Just face the challenges.
If you are standing and looking at a closed door in your dream, it is a sign of your uncertainty. You have many questions about what might be behind the door, the consequences of opening it, and what will happen to you.
The dream reveals your feelings, you can’t find a way out of your problems, and more are lurking outside the door. The dream also indicates a defensive attitude. You must be more firm and confident in your opinion and eliminate your fears.
If you dreamed of a closed door, there are better investment times than this. Now you should improve your relationship with your surroundings. It is worthwhile to better organize the time you devote to work and family.
You should also find a way to relax because it will give you new ideas to help you overcome problems.
A closed door in a dream warns you not to isolate yourself, accept the invitation of friends and participate in social and community life.

How you interpret your dream about doors will be very specific, as you undoubtedly have ideas about doors and their meaning.
Here are some common interpretations and themes related to the dream about doors:
Possibilities + New beginnings
We have probably all heard many sayings about doors, such as: When one door closes, another door opens. The dream may refer to the openness and availability of something new.
When you dream about an open door or walking through a door, it could mean a transition to a new situation in your life. It could refer to something you are currently experiencing, looking forward to or longing for. Whatever it is, it is a positive symbol in your dream because you can move freely and are not blocked in your path.
Mystery + The unknown
A door in a dream can depict a mystery in life, both good and bad.
Doors can protect secrets. Doors create a barrier and the unknown hides behind closed doors. A locked door may require a key, password, or some credentials to access what lies behind it. You don’t know what’s behind the door until you open it.
Fear + ways to choose
A secret door in your dream may suggest excitement or fear of something you see on the horizon.
It may also suggest that you have a choice and are trying to figure out how to proceed. You will need to consider what else is going on in your dream and how you feel to understand what it means.
Feeling trapped + stuck.
A closed door blocking your path may indicate that you feel trapped. You may be stuck because something is blocking you on your life path.
You may feel trapped in a situation, longing to get out but feeling that you have no say, no control over the situation.
Conversely, you may desperately want to be let in (to a club, school, get a particular new job or start a relationship with someone) but feel trapped behind a door. You have to knock. Or is there a hidden key you need?
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us. “
- Helen Keller

Another thing to consider is the color of the door:
Black: secrecy, isolation, depression, fear, career goals
