Dream interpretation locked suitcase

One night, I dreamed of a locked suitcase. My friend was staying over at my place. She wanted to borrow toiletries and clothes. I asked her why. She said her suitcase was locked and she couldn’t open it because she lost her key. I searched for her key and found it. I used the key to open her luggage bag.

There could be a few dream interpretations for this dream imagery. The person whose suitcase was locked, could have deliberately delayed finding the key to open her suitcase. The reason being that she didn’t want to use her own resources. She may have wanted to conserve her resources for fear of running out her supplies.

This dream was triggered by a real life incident. My relative called us on the telephone, to say that he found an old suitcase in his family home. It was locked using a number combination lock and he couldn’t remember the code to open it. He asked us to help him by suggesting some number codes. We tried to suggest birthdays, and anniversary days, but none of these cracked the code. Then he said he would bring the locked suitcase to a locksmith to try to get it opened.
