DREAM DICTIONARY - Steal : Stealing dreams can often be caused by people taking advantage of others. Do you feel that someone has used you? Have you been disgusted by how someone has blatantly taken advantage of someone? Who is in it for whatever they can get and does not want to put in effort? Wanting something for nothing?
Stealing can also symbolise anything that you want but which you will never get or which you are not willing to put the proper effort to aquire. If you attracted to someone who is fabulously attractive and rich then you are wanting something which you are not likely to ever get. So your dream maybe telling you to aim for something achievable.
Stealing may show that you need to put more effort into something. To buy things we have to work and put effort in. So stealing in a dream may suggest that you are not putting enough effort in.
Stealing can represent someones wild behaviour. Have you been going off the rails? Have you been accused of drinking too much and behaving irresponsibly? Do you realise that you or someone else needs to settle down?
In a similar way stealing can simply represent chaos in your life. If something is stolen then your life can be sent into a spin. So if your life is in utter choas then a stolen car or wallet would be an excellent metaphor for that feeling of chaos.
Stealing can link to your resentments. Do you feel that you have been robbed of something? Have others taken credit for things that you have done? Are you angry because your partner has taken away your independence and robbed you of opportunities. Maybe even taken your self respect?
Stealing can also link to people you simply do not trust. After all no one trusts a thief. So if you do not like being around someone because you simply do not trust them then this could easily cause a stealing dream.
Stealing dreams can occasionally be caused by someone lending something off someone and breaking that item. After all if you lend something which works and give it back then its as good a stealing. Such situations can be made worse because a friend or relative may insist that you need not pay for the item to be replaced. Yet this may cause resentment. At the heart of this is the feeling that you have not treated someones property with respect and taken proper care of the item.
