The meaning of Doors in dream | Dream interpretation
Options under examination (see Buildings, Windows).
An invitation to explore aspects of the self from the past, present, or those reaching to the future.
Revolving doors: Going in circles and getting nowhere. Being stuck in a pattern or cycle and not knowing how to break it.
Glowing doors: Spiritual opportunities.
Back door: hidden things, sneaky motivations.
New phases or openings.
If the door remains firmly locked, you might not be ready to take this step.
An entryway into the subconscious. Hospitality offered or given.
Standing in front of, but not entering: A reluctance to actively pursue present options.
A missing door reveals tremendous openness on your part, or that of another person or situation.
Stone doors often stand in front of important revelations or bits of knowledge, like those that were frequently used in tombs (note the story of Christ’s resurrection).
Doorbells: A sign of forthcoming unexpected news, guests, or messages.
Doors often refer to the openings of the body and, therefore, by default, one’s sexuality.
The front door and back door signifies the vagina and the anus respectively. Breaking down such a door can be taken to indicate the need to deal with some kind of inhibition over privacy or sex; there can be an unwillingness to face whatever issues this may bring up. Barring the door highlights our need for self-protection, not just in matters of relationship. Opening and closing the door can show an ambivalent attitude to sex, whereas refusing to open the door represents an innocent approach to our own sexuality; we may have a virginal mentality.
A door between the outer and inner rooms shows there may be a conflict between the conscious and the unconscious.
If an animal or person forces his way in and destroys the lock, it shows our own protective mechanisms have let us down. Escaping by another door indicates we need to find a new solution to the one we originally thought of to solve a problem. Someone knocking on the door signifies that our attention is being drawn to an external situation. You might like to consult the individual entry for door.
Doors most often represent openings into new opportunities that may fulfill your desires.
A closed door may suggest that you feel locked out emotionally. Being unable to open a door in a dream may suggest that you have missed an important opportunity or that you do not possess the key or tool for opening it. It may also separate you from others or from welcoming others to you.
