To dream of a knob (i.e. a door knob) is the unconscious making the individual aware they are at a turning point in life.

If one hears knocking in a dream it is typically the unconscious alerting us to the need to address some aspect of our personality that is too domineering. If the dreamer is the one knocking it is usually an indication that we are seeking permission to obtain entry. This can be applicable to a relationship or work situation.


In dreams, a knot has many meanings; it can represent a bind that we need to unfree. It can also demonstrate the strong bonds we have with others. Another interpretation is that we feel tied to a situation, circumstance, or person and in order to release the bind we need to undo some facet (e.g. releasing a relationship).
