What Does It Mean When You Dream About Home Invasion?
Our house is one of the most important spaces. Most people consider it very personal and don’t let many people into it.
Even unannounced visits from friends and family can sometimes be considered an invasion of a person’s privacy. Such behavior would also be considered impolite and thoughtless.
In our dreams, our home often represents our inner being. Houses are a symbol of some aspects of our personality.
The upper floors usually signify the conscious parts of our mind, while the lower floors, and especially the basement, symbolize the unconscious mind and the secrets buried deep within our mind.
We are often not aware of some thoughts and feelings buried in our subconscious and they need to be triggered by some external event (even a dream) to come to the surface so that we can become aware of them and start dealing with them.
Different areas of our home in our dream could indicate different periods of your life as well as the events you have experienced. The appearance of your house and the state it was in in your dream describes your character and personal characteristics.
We often dream about our childhood home. These dreams often indicate our need to return to the comfort and security of our childhood life. These were possibly the days when we felt safest and didn’t have too many worries.
In some cases, the dream about childhood home could indicate that we avoided some responsibility.
In most cases, we tend to dream about childhood homes when we have some problems that we don’t know how to deal with, or we subconsciously wish we had the support we had in those days.
In general, we tend to dream about our home, and not just our childhood home, in times of crisis and stress that we are going through.
The dream is usually a sign of distress that we are currently experiencing and the dream about our home is a way for our subconscious to find a safe haven and relief from the anxiety we experience daily in every moment of our waking hours.
This dream could also indicate your need to protect yourself from being overwhelmed with tons of duties and things to do.
Because our house is a very important symbol in our dreams, a dream about being invaded by someone or something can be a very upsetting experience. These dreams can have different meanings, but they are often the result of some anxiety and stress, or even the fear you have.
A dream about a home invasion could indicate a feeling of insecurity while you are in your home.
Possibly you have a reason for your fears, but in most cases, these fears you have are unfounded, or have their base in some subconscious fear that you are not aware of or you do not know its source.
In some cases, people who are lonely, or who tend to spend a lot of time at home, have irrational fears that someone might break into their home while they are away.
These fears can be combined with some psychological problems the person has.
Some people are afraid of the outdoors, and believe that they are only safe when they are at home.
These fears can grow out of proportion and they can start to fear that their home will be invaded, which will leave them without a safe place. These cases usually ask the person to face the fears they have and discover the reasons to be able to confront them.
This is necessary because these fears are crippling normal functioning. If they cannot do it themselves, it is advisable to consult a professional.
Sometimes a dream about a home invasion could be induced by a stressful job or a stressful way of life.
There are different ways someone or something could break into our home. Different people would consider different occurrences as trespassing.
For example, for some people, even a casual unannounced visit from their friend could be considered an intrusion and an irritating experience if they don’t like to experience such situations and consider their home a place where only the chosen ones are invited.
For people who invite anyone into their home, even strangers, an unannounced visit would be a common thing and they would most likely be happy about it.
Dreams about breaking into our house are common. Possibly all people have experienced such a dream at least once in their lives.
These dreams could, in some cases, reveal our feelings as if our private life had been invaded in some way; if you keep dreaming dreams about this topic, then maybe there is something in your life that you find invasive and disturbing.
It could be someone you don’t like and want to avoid, or it could be a problem you can’t seem to solve.
There can be a vast number of different explanations and reasons for feeling like your privacy has been invaded. It’s up to you to discover them and try to solve them.
The details of the dream can give you a lot of clues to get started.
