Meaning of Dreams: Words beginning with D
To open a door and go through it, if the mood is positive in the dream, then this dream can suggest that opportunities are waiting ahead of you, but that you may need to gain some more skills before you can accept it. Work on becoming a more educated person and you are sure to find success.
To open a door and go through it, if the mood is negative in the dream, can suggest that there is something or someone that you are trying to avoid or escape from. This is not a good sign but is it also not a prediction that something bad is bound to happen.
To see someone else go through a door can be a sign that you need to work harder at your career if you want to advance in it at all. Practicing your hobbies more will also raise the chance of it becoming your career.
To see that a door you have recently touched has fallen and hurt someone suggests that you have given some bad advice recently, or that you are bound to in the near future. If you have no given advice yet, try not to. It is not likely to turn out the way that you expect it to.
Since a door is an opening, it can also be representative of a vagina.
Hearing a door bell in your dream is not a good sign. This dream can predict that you will be called upon for something important at a short notice. This will likely be for work that you do not want to do or because of the illness or injury of someone who you care about.
Seeing a door mat in your dream can imply that you feel like you are being stepped on by others. You may feel like you don’t have much of a choice of what you do in your life. This dream could suggest that you need to find a healthier way to express yourself if you want to become a happier person.
Seeing a doppelganger of yourself in your dream can be a reflection of how you act in your fairly like. This could be a way of your mind pointing out your negative traits so that you know which ones need fixing/changing.

To dream of being in a dorm can suggest that you highly value learning and that getting more knowledge would be important to you.

Seeing dough in your dream represent potential that could be lying in yourself or within other aspects of your life. This could suggest that you can make something out of your life, so you might as well start trying!
The dove is a paradoxical dream symbol, especially when it is seen from a religious standpoint. In Jewish-Christian religions, the dove is usually seen as a symbol of peace, love, and God’s grace. However, like the rainbow, it can be seen as a reminder of the great flood that these religions believe once covered the earth. For this reason, the dove can be seen as both a joyous and mournful sign.
Because of the dual meaning of the dove, the mood of the dream is the deciding factor for what this term means. If you are happy in the dream, then the dove can be a sign that your life will be harmonious in the near future. However, if you are upset in the dream, then this can be a prediction that you will become disappointed in the near future.

The western dragon can also represent a person’s primal unconscious. Everyone has a violent thought every once in awhile, even though there’s not a good reason to be violent in today’s world. This dream could suggest that you are suppressing violent or sexually diverse ideas because they feel wrong to you. Try to find a good way to get out these impulses, like being with someone who also likes different sex things, or investing in a punching bag or therapy if you have anger issues.
This dream could also be a warning that you need to learn how to control yourself if you do not want others to take advantage of your flaws. It is especially important to control your urges in the workplace. Remember to keep your cool in the future.
Eastern dragons are often seen as a sign of good luck, the opposite of the western dragon. These dragons can represent intelligence, wealth, and good luck. To see one of these dragons in your dream is likely a prediction of good luck involving one of the three traits listed above.
