Dreams About Getting Robbed
Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings
Have you woken up in a cold sweat about a dream of robbery? Well, it does not mean that you're the next Bonnie and Clyde but that there are certain things running through your mind that you need to understand.
Dreams can provide us with much information, being a victim of a robbery in a dream normally means that you feel you are a victim in real life and are searching to define your own identity. This dream is about your own motivation and engagement, there could be some loss in your life. In older dream lore dreaming of a robbery means that you encounter someone who is tactless that may threaten your own happiness. It could be that you have not been treated well.
Robberies, aggravated and simple assaults, thefts and car thefts are often common subjects that arise during our sleep. I will run over your dream concerns and also what the dream means. As this dream threatens your well-being the question of “why” you have encountered this specific dream will be answered.
Armed robberies are ambiguous in the dream state. Invariably they can include some strong emotional attachments. If there was threatened or actual violence in the dream then this predicts that you need to look at “why you do the things you do.” The dream provides crucial insights into your own motivations. The dream is positive in that it gives you the tools you need in order to learn about your own strengths and how to motive yourself. Think of the robbery itself as an illusion. If a person threatens you in the dream and you do not die this is like an illusion of death. Because there is a lot of drama in these types of dreams we can sometimes feel that the actual events may happen in real life.
Why did you have this dream?
In our society, robbery is a common occurrence and when it does happen, it leaves us feeling devastated. According to statistics by home securities, most robberies happen in summer with house burglary being the most common form. In the United States of America alone, a home burglary occurs every 13 seconds. Robberies occur and we witness it on televisions and all around us and that is why it is not unusual to dream about a robbery. In fact, Freud believed that external influences effect our dream state so it is not uncommon that robberies are featured on the television, and this can have an impact on your dreams.
Will this come true?
Dreams should not be mixed with reality because when we dream it is our own subconscious mind trying to communicate to the “conscious mind” about a problem or a solution in regards to an existing problem. Therefore, don’t worry too much I don’t think it will happen. The good thing about this dream is that it is not real and even though it will leave you in no doubt shaken. Not long ago I dreamed that my house was broken into and it worried me. I realized this was about me having good luck and changing aspects of my life. On very rare occasions this dream can be a prediction. Are you in possession of the item that was robbed? Now, in most cases, there is always a hidden meaning in our dreams and it will be important to learn about what it means when we dream about a robbery and the different scenarios that present themselves in our sleep.

It could be that you have encountered conflict with this particular family member which has (in waking life) lead to a strained relationship.

Make sure that you don’t do or say something that you are going to regret about in the near future is the older dream meaning. This may mean that you need to engage on a different level.
