You can dream of trying to find a way out of some situation as the representation of how you are attempting to make a similar change in daily life. Feeling trapped can signify your own self limiting ideas - and seeking an escape can portray how you are moving to broaden your options. The dream is exploring the limitations you place on yourself where buildings can portray work; houses can portray ideas; and escaping in a vehicle through streets can symbolize needed changes in motivation or a new sense of direction so that you can find fulfillment. Escaping through doors can represent being open to opportunity, while escaping through windows symbolize a change in perspective or how you see the world. Since everything in a dream is embodying your inner world - you need only open the things you close so that you can move freely. See also Enemy and Attack or Being Chased.
