Insights on dream of being locked out of room

Meaning of numbers 13 and 6
Immediately after I wake up from the dream, I pick up my smartphone and come across a YouTube video in which Glenda Jackson amazingly speaks about the meanings of the numbers 13 and 6. It is the first time I hear her speak.
According to Glenda, the number 13 means “to sin and rebel against God“, and the number 6 speaks of “Satan’s influence on man“.
She also reveals how God shows her the meaning of 666 during the interview.
There can be positive and negative meanings regarding the numbers 13 and 6. In the context of the dream, I believe number 13 means “sin and rebellion against God” which is the state of man before he comes to Christ whereas the number 6 refers to “man, humanity” as the first man was created on the 6th day.
13 is the room assigned to me in the past. That is the place of sin and rebellion (13) in my former life, and from this place I could only see things pertaining to the things of man (6). In God’s eyes, in our old life without God, we were all sinners in need of God’s forgiveness and redemption through Jesus Christ.
Once I come out of the room after I accepted Jesus into my life, I left my belongings there, I no longer have access to that room and to the things of the past, even if in the flesh I sometimes still want to go back to that place. That room has already vanished and could nowhere be found.
For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. For he who has died has been freed from sin.
Romans 6:5-7 NKJV
If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
God is leading me to a new place to feast and learn with an international body of believers. In the spirit I want to be with the community of believers but in my flesh I at times am still concerned about the things that I have left behind in the past. When I do that, I am actually contending with the Spirit of God.
The moment we accept Jesus into our lives and become born again, we are being instantly set free from all our sins. Not only that, what belongs in the past no longer has any hold on us. In truth, our former life together with our sins, as far as God is concerned, has completely vanished. There’s no point revisiting the past as we won’t be able to find anything there. Having been redeemed by the blood of Jesus, we now belong to a new family called the body of Christ.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
II Corinthians 5:17 NKJV
Later in the evening I ask God to give me a scripture regarding the dream and the first thought that comes to my mind is “Psalms”. I turn to Psalms 13 and realise that it has 6 verses:
How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, Having sorrow in my heart daily? How long will my enemy be exalted over me? Consider and hear me, O Lord my God; Enlighten my eyes, Lest I sleep the sleep of death; Lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed against him”; Lest those who trouble me rejoice when I am moved. But I have trusted in Your mercy; My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, Because He has dealt bountifully with me.
Psalms 13:1-6 NKJV
