Lock Dream Symbol – A lock is a dream symbol of the forbidden or the untouchable. This dream may involve you locking something away, or of you being locked out of something or somewhere you want to see. If you dream of locking something away, this is an indication of something that you value greatly, which you are afraid that others will harm if they have access to it. Consider why you feel this thing is threatened and must be protected, and especially who you feel you are protecting it from.
This will provide insights into possible relationship problems, along with helping you to understand why you are so protective of this thing. On the other hand, if you dream of being locked out, this indicates a feeling of being excluded or not trusted by the person who placed the lock.
