No, it won't, because I do have nightmares of home invasions, rather often, and I do have guns.

My dreams, fortunately, do not predict the future.

I suppose home invasion dreams can go both ways. In a recent one, I think I did fired, my gun didn't have its 1000 lb trigger pull preventing me from firing, and then I was worried about the aftermath.

BUT, in other home invasion dreams, my Wicca side has come into play where I release the animal spirits in my stuffed animals and they come to protect me.

As to what causes them, I would guess that in reality we are in fear of losing a security that is very basic to us and these manifests into dreams where our basic concept of safety, our home, is violated...............but that's just a guess.

The dream of "Deluge" is actually recurrent for a lot of people. Jung probably would have had a field day with it. J.R.R. Tolkien suffered the same dream throughout his life. So at least I'm in good company.
I'm thinking it was Deep Impact. Thanks! I couldn't remember. In my dream, the wave leveled hundreds of small beach towns on the Eastern Seaboard. The dream always ended before I might have died. It usually ended before the water hit me, but a couple of times, I was swimming in the first rush of water.

Buy an alarm system for the house. Usually when they go off the potential burglar will run off, especially if they're trying to rob the house at night when they know people are home. At the very least it would wake you up, plus an alarm system sign in the front of the house will discourage any potential threats (low hanging fruit is their preference).

I sometimes have waking dreams, ones where you're very lightly asleep or just at the verge of falling asleep, where I feel the presence of intruders in the house and you feel like you're being put under a sleeping effect.
Its only on my days off when I nap on the couch. Its being in a strange sleeping environment. It never happens during the day, only at night. And when its warm and I sleep on the enclosed porch at night, I get the dream where night things( ghosts, vampires, aliens, black eyed children, werewolves, robbers, MIB) are trying to get in the porch and the door is unlocked. That sends me indoors.

Beat me to it. I agree with this assessment. The home is yourself.

Try to remember where you are in the home or where the invaders come in. That may give you a clue as to where you are feeling vulnerable.

I was 9 going on ten. Both of those things horrified me, yet fascinated me. I don't recall if that's when they began. But, it's a thought.

Now, many years later, I still have "home invasion" themed nightmares.

While they are disturbing, my main concern is that they are predicting something yet to come.

The strange thing is, that other than my dreams, IRL I am very un-paranoid when it comes to crime. I don't obsess about it. I also believe that we attract what we worry about.
In general, I am not suspicious. I will sit on my porch on a summer night, and read, unafraid of passers by. I told that to a friend who said that she would never do that. I don't live in a dangerous area, and neither does she.

I just mention that to convey how little I think about these things while awake.

Any thoughts?
I think you were young enough and impressionable enough that the home invasions became a lifelong recurring fear in your subconscious mind.

I have had nightmares of scary creatures chasing me for as long as I can recall. I wouldn't even call them nightmares per se, I am not really scared or agitated when I "dream" them. But the theme of something running after me and sometimes biting / grabbing is pretty common.

When I was already an adult, I noticed an old scar on my left calf. It's about the size of a large fingernail now, was a bit smaller then. I had no idea how it got there. I asked my mom and she said I was bitten by a neighbor's dog when I was four. Apparently I somehow hurt the dog and it ran after me and grabbed me by the leg and then let go. Didn't maul me or anything but one tooth did break the skin. Back in those days it was not considered a big deal, just a learning moment. I have absolutely no recollection of this. But it explains the nightmares.

I found that the scene is available on Youtube.

Looking at it again, I see that although they're described as "Mutant Nazis", there are no swastikas or SS runes on their uniforms.

Which doesn't make them any less dreaded-looking.

This explanation makes a lot of sense.

I still vividly remember having my own little mini series of short dreams while I was pregnant regarding a break in. I had the dreams over a 2 month period and the strangest thing about the dreams was that each dream started where the last dream left off.

The first dream I dreamt was of a male walking around the outside of my house looking for a way to break into my home.


2nd dream: The man decided the basement window would provide him with an easy access into my home.


3rd dream: The man had removed the basement window somehow and he was getting ready to ease

himself through the window.


4th dream: He silently eases himself through the basement window. He's then standing in the

dark basement quietly surveying his surroundings.


5th dream: Finding nothing interesting in the basement, he decides to go upstairs. He places a foot on the

first step.


6th dream: The man continues to walk up the stairs and is now standing at the top of the stairs looking into

my kitchen.


7th dream: He walks through my kitchen toward my dining room.



8th dream: He is walking through my dining room toward the hallway outside of my bedroom.



9th dream: From the hallway he walks toward my bedroom doorway. He stops at the doorway and just

stands there looking into my bedroom.



10th dream: He enters my bedroom, walking toward my side of the bed.



11th dream: The man is now standing beside me at the edge of my bed, staring down at me as I sleep.


A couple of days later after the 11th dream, I gave birth to my son and the dreams ended. I've never dreamed of the mysterious man again, nor was it a freaky premonition dream of a future break in. I just chalked it up to some sort of weirdness caused by my hormones.

Basements are our subconscious. Kitchens are symbolic of nurishment and the coming together of family, as it tends to be the most active room in a home.
I think the man was the representation of your son. He was getting a preview of his coming life.
He walks around the house, you, enters into your subconscious (dreaming), goes up into the house, an emergence, as a baby does when born. And then watching over you as you sleep/dream, connecting with you through dreaming prior to birth.
