Detailed dream meaning

Vandalism represents some form of destruction of property, even when it is pretty or aesthetic vandalism. Now, graffiti sometimes is a popular form of art work in some sub-cultures, but for most it is considered dirty and a nuisance. Consider the type and the purpose of the vandalism in the dream in order to get an accurate meaning of it in your waking world.

Vandalism that is created as a gang symbol in a dream can sometimes indicate a desire to move up or a want for wealth and power. Especially if you’re in an area where gang activity is high and a sign of status, then this dream will have a special meaning. Consider your own knowledge of what the symbolism of your vandalism that you create or see in your dream means. If you are a person that has no idea about graffiti and vandalism, then the meaning of it will have a different meaning.

If you are dreaming that your car or property is damaged by vandalism, this is a warning sign of a loss that will be coming your way. Consider if there is a message left by the vandals in your dream that there is likely a truthful meaning to it as well. This is a time to protect your wealth and property and not a time to take risks or be wanton with your finances.

Cleaning up vandalism indicates taking pride in your home and your environment. When you are being responsible and trying to better the area that you live in, it represents a desire to create a positive change in your life. If you are successful in the clean-up in your dream, it can be directly linked to the current path that you are on.

Sometimes vandalism is akin to rebellion and it can be necessary to voice dissent for something that you don’t feel is right. Using non-violent forms of vandalism can create a change that needs to be done on a social level. Often dreams of being change innovators are the beginnings of good works in your waking world. Now is the time to run with your instincts and to act on what you feel. Do not doubt yourself.

Being accused of something you didn’t do is typically a trust issue for your psyche. If you are accused of vandalism and are not guilty of the deed, consider the person who made the accusation as someone that you are not trusting and you should trust your own judgment about these people or person in your dream.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Trusting (or not trusting) people in your life.
  • Creating positive and innovative social change.
  • Having progress towards a goal.
  • Disagreeing with another person.
  • Repressed feelings towards another person.
