I recently had a dream that someone broke into my house. At first the house was not my actual, real life house. They broke in and I hid in a closet with my little brother and my boyfriend. My parents were talking to the people who broke in and told them where we were hiding. After that, we were told to give them our laptops, cell phones, cameras, etc. The people who broke in were young... about my age (22), a male and a female. We were scared they were going to shoot us. At this piont, the house turned into my actual house. It was late at night and the female went swimming with my sister in our pool, while the male was trying to kiss me. It was a very, very odd and uncomfortable dream. I have no idea what it could mean. Any input?
A house as a symbol represents one's current state of consciousness. How you relate to the world as a sum total of body, mind and spirit. State of being which is constantly changing. "Someone breaking into your house" could mean that someone has done or said something that might leave you in a state of questioning or not feeling "sure" about some aspect of your life. There is an outside interference. It may be that someone is challenging a belief. In the dream you "hid in the closet" or you might be reluctant to state or show your true feelings about a subject.
Having to "give them laptops, cell phones, cameras" might say that there exists records of your thoughts and feelings on subjects and you are being questioned perhaps to stand up for those words, thoughts and deeds and own them. Being afraid someone was going to "shoot you" is another way of saying that you are afraid of being attacked, perhaps just verbally by another for being who you are.
..........I think the dream just shows that you are evolving and coming to terms with maybe new thoughts and beliefs about life in general and you maybe sometimes feel the need to hide your true beliefs or be called to defend them. I would think you might just be yourself be comfortable with all your thoughts, feelings, and even uncertainties and not let anyone question the right to be exactly where you are.
..just my thoughts.
