Unable To Lock Doors
These dreams are random, so I can't say whether or not anything significant is/was happening in my life at the time.
This happens every time I dream about someone/something coming after me to hurt me/kill me...
I see them coming and run to close and lock the door, but it's like my fingertips will not turn the lock and instead, they fumble with it - it's like I lack the strength to turn it.
Or sometimes, the person/being that I just saw in the distance coming for me, is all of a sudden right at the door, turning the knob just as I'm trying to lock it - but again, my fingertips just can't get it to turn.
I don't ever recognize the person or thing that is after me, so it's not somebody I know. I just know I'm terrified and wanting to keep them from getting me - and I can't because of not being able to successfully turn the lock on the door.
What could this mean?
