What does it mean when you dream about a door?

Doors may have a variety of different meanings—meanings that can usually be ascertained depending on how the door is disposed in a dream. An open door indicates a new opportunity; stepping through a doorway means appropriating a new opportunity, or entering into a new phase of life; a choice of many doorways shows a juncture at which a choice must be made; and a locked door indicates something repressed or hidden. A closed door may represent something hidden, or it may symbolize an opportunity that is closed to us. (See also Gate.)

(2) Undocumented code in a program that lets someone gain illegal access. See back door.

(3) A programming interface that lets an online user run an application program in a bulletin board system (BBS).


Doors are passageways and in our dreams that is their symbolism. Going through a door may represent going from one state of consciousness to another or from one inner plane to another. Locked or closed doors may represent an obstacle or opportunities that are not currently available to you. Many doors may represent your current choices.
