Last Updated on 4 months by Alina Dreamer

Dreaming of thieves can have different meanings, depending on the circumstance and context. Many people often associate this type of dream with a nightmare and often cause a lot of despair. However, when you are clear about the symbolic meaning that they have, it can be a great relief.

There are different ways of dreaming about thieves, and each of these dreams can have a very different representative meaning in each of its various variations in which they are shown.

Meaning of dreaming of thieves

The meanings of these dreams can come in various forms, and each can have a different meaning. However, they are all usually related to the constant fear of having one of your valuable belongings taken away, whether they are material or not. Dreams with thieves can mean:

Dreaming that a thief steals something from you

These dreams are usually represented directly by the loss of a friend. Some material theft, which will lose a trial or some truly unbearable event. It can also mean that you are very low in morale because of various problems.

Dreaming of seeing a thief steal something

This can be represented directly by an extramarital encounter between a lover. Some relationships will remain between you regardless of the marital situation you both have.

Dreaming that you stop a thief before he steals something

This dream individually can be taken quite negatively. It usually denotes disappointment with some event in general, or that you are not happy with life itself.

Dreaming that you are a thief

This has two possible meanings. The first is that it shows a personal fear of losing something that you had worked too hard to gain. In short, it is a deep sense of insecurity that we may even believe that we don’t deserve everything we have.

The other meaning comes in a more personal way in terms of relationships. It means that you have the thought that you have crossed some boundaries in a relationship situation with your partner.

Dreaming that you are the hostage of some thief

This dream is considered one of the most profound dreams of thieves. It means that other people (whether friends, family, or colleagues) are overspending what you have been saving all your life.

It means that everything you have worked for all your life is being depleted by someone you know. It may refer to your monetary savings, the ideas you have had, the energies you have invested, or the time you have spent on all these tasks.

Dreaming that you are a thief and being chased by the police

This dream purely means a confrontation with your greatest enemies. It can mean a coming conflict that has been tormenting you for some time. It can also mean a significant reversal of fortune in some business you are conducting.

Dreaming of a burglar breaking into our house

It represents a very positive change for our working life. It can mean a promotion or a change of job that can be highly productive for our person and our personal life.

Dreaming that a burglar steals our house in our absence

Its meaning can emphasize the suspicions or doubts we have regarding various situations or people. It makes us think that someone is taking full advantage of the trust we give them daily.

In turn, it is considered a kind of warning from the subconscious that tells us that we must open our eyes to this use to prevent further damage. It confirms that we know internally that something is wrong, and we must take action to fix it.

Conclusion of dreaming of thieves

Of so many types of dreams, it can be said that this is the one that presents the most personal symbols concerning insecurities and problems with confidence. They represent, in most cases, the constant fear of losing some very valuable possession to us and are usually attributed to the fears of each person.

However, it should be clarified that if we had a near robbery experience, or watched a thieves movie or something like that, dreaming about thieves does not mean anything, since they are repercussions of our memory that do not symbolize any insecurity.
