Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Are your dreams getting interrupted by the appearance of a thief now and then?

Then you are feeling uncomfortable and roped in by some real-life situation and you want to break out of it. A thief is a person who does not respect any rule or any law and breaks them at the first opportunity. A thief is always engaged in surreptitiously acquiring things of value which belong to others. When you see a thief in your dream, it signifies that you may possess something of value in your real life which somebody wants to take away without your knowledge. The loss of time and energy, the loss of a relationship, can occur if you are not careful enough and cherish them and care for them in your real life. If you are casual or careless about them then somebody may come along and take them away before you can notice.

Your dream

  • A thief in the act.
  • You are being robbed.
  • You are pursuing the thief.
  • You are the thief.
  • You are being pursued.

Detailed dream interpretations

The symbolism of a thief in your dreams is a warning to you so that you are careful enough to prevent this theft. You might be feeling bound by the environment around you in real life situations. These constraints may force you to use stealth for finding out opportunities which suit you the best. The thief in your dreams is telling you to break out of your worldly shackles and steal some time for yourself which you can enjoy. If you see in your dream that you are the thief and you are being pursued by the authorities, then it means that you are facing some crisis and reversal in your business in real life which you want to avoid but you are not able to. The pursuit can also signify that you are facing some social problems in your real life which may be unpleasant for you and you are trying to flee from them.

The thief in your dreams may be a fear that you are being taken advantage of, or you are being manipulated. This fear translates into the image of a thief in your dreams where you see the theft taking place behind your back. Sometimes you feel that you are faced with a herculean task in your real life. The urge to somehow bypass these insurmountable obstacles becomes so great that you want to adopt a stealthy approach like a thief and go round the obstacle without getting noticed and this urge gets reflected in your dreams.

When a thief appears in your dream, it may mean that you have overstepped some imaginary boundary in a relationship with another person like a thief does when he enters someone’s house. The symbolism comes as a warning to you to retreat immediately to your own territory before any damage can occur to yourself. The sight of a thief robbing in your dreams provides a warning to you not to trust everyone in your real life as there may be unscrupulous people around you. The symbolism warns you do not divulge your secrets to everyone you come across as that may lead to you getting robbed in the first place.
