What Does It Mean When You Dream About Keys?
Keys are one of our most important accessories. Your main purpose of using the keys is to guarantee the security of our properties. Almost everyone in the world has a pair of keys.
They are not only used to lock the doors of our houses, garages, cars, etc., but they can be keys that lock our suitcases, briefcases and even our diaries.
In addition to using keys to protect our property, we also use keys to protect our privacy and our private affairs.
Keys are items we use to lock and unlock things. We do this daily, many times. Because of this, dreams about keys are often a reflection of our daily activities. But there are times when these dreams have a much deeper meaning.
These dreams are often related to our inner being. They can indicate opening for someone or something, or conversely, closing for something or someone.
These dreams are often a sign that we are going through a personal transformation where we begin to open ourselves to changes, new ideas, opportunities, to gain knowledge about subjects that interest us, etc.
Dreams about keys could also indicate some repressed content emerging to the surface and our readiness to finally deal with these issues. It is possibly old and hurt memories from the past that are undermining your progress because they are holding your energy stuck in the past.
Perhaps you are not aware of this fact, and this dream serves as a reminder to go back to the past and face these issues so that you can finally move on with your life.
Keys in dreams can be a sign of control, independence and freedom issues, as well as secrets.
They often symbolize solutions to some problems we have. They can also indicate repressing some feelings or being in denial of something.
Maybe you don’t want to share something with others, like thoughts or emotions. Sometimes you want to keep something you’ve experienced a secret.
