Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings



The dream about keys is a dream that refers to solutions to one's life problems.

The question you have to ask yourself when you have this type of dream is “what is the problem I have today that needs a solution, or a key?” The key is a common apparition in dreams and it is the omen of new discoveries, new settings, fresh ideas, thoughts or feelings, new experiences and new knowledge that has been hidden from you before. Dreaming of a key suggests that you should now be open to a big change in your life, personality, and new beginnings.

Dreaming of a key is symbolic to discovering the unknown and it refers mainly to your psyche. A key in a dream can also portend personality development and spiritual growth. Usually there is a secret, a mysterious situation in your life, and you are looking for solutions; this is when the key appears in your dream. If you lose a key, this is the omen of a period of "life" that is coming to an end.

Finding a key in your dream can mean that you have met your soul mate. A key can also be a warning especially if in your waking life you are just planning a trip or a big change in your life setting. The appearance of a key in this context suggests that the time for this trip or change is not appropriate and you should probably postpone it.

Dreaming that you have been taken captive and you are missing a key means that you are carrying too many problems at the moment. If a key shows up (out of the blue), this suggests you need to find solutions for your current problems -, and you will do so, skillfully and with tact.

Spiritually speaking the appearance of a key in your dream suggests that at the moment you need to liberate yourself from an incriminating situation in your waking life and go towards positive situations and attitudes. If the key in your dream is made of silver or gold, this indicates strong spiritual power.


Using a key in your dream indicates that you are probably involved in some confidential matters and you need some explanations for this. If in your dream you forge a key, this foretells that a happy relationship in your life will be disturbed and may even come to an end. Being in a key shop it means that you cannot impose your love on someone. Having a key in your hand indicates that you are very sure of yourself and your actions in life. To get a key cut means that new opportunities will come to you soon.

Losing a key means that an informal dispute with someone will upset you. This will hurt deeply and you will not be able to find understanding among your loved ones. The same dream can portend the loss of an important opportunity. If you find a key in your dream this means that you will be liberated from an embarrassment that has been torturing you lately, and that your new plans will bring you new chances, especially in your love life.

Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of key...

Mellow. Soft. Relaxed. Loving. Kind. Trusting. Surprised. Content. Spiritual. Happy. Amazed. Curious. Enjoying. Joyful. Full of life and energy. Confused, but relaxed. Devotional.
