In my dream, my kids and I are on the top floor in an apartment building. The man living across the hall wants to kill us all. I try to lock the door but there's no lock so I put a chair under the knob but another door appears for the killer to come in. I can't protect my kids. What does this mean? – Loranda 35, Willis, TX
Lauri: The building represents something in your life that you have "built," like your career, your family, a relationship, etc. The man across the hall is something negative that you feel is nearby or looming. He wants to kill you because you must be feeling pressure in some way to forcibly change or end something. Death in a dream is about something ending or changing naturally whereas murder is more about something being forced to change or end. Trying to lock the door is connected to you trying to keep this issue out of your life but since there is no lock, this is something you cannot avoid. Putting the chair under the knob while another door appears seems to indicate that you may have thought you had taken care of this issue but something made you realize that this is here to stay. It seems to me that your dream is telling you, it's time. This needs to be handled.
Loranda replies: The building is the family I have built with my husband and our kids from previous marriages. However, my son will not accept his step-dad at all. I keep trying to help him see things differently but he is set in his ideas. I did think for a while that he was doing better then he started feeling unhappy again. We have agreed to let him live with his grandmother for the summer in hopes that he will realize his life is not too bad with all of us. I don't want him to leave, but I don't know what else to do. This dream really disturbed me and now I feel a little more at peace with it.
