Since I was a child, I have experienced nightmares involving home invasions. Sometimes the people start off as guests, but turn sinister and are asked to leave. At other times, it is a full blown home invasion.

When I was 7, I remember Richard Speck invaded a dorm of student nurses, and strangled and killed eight of them. I also remember vividly, the summer when the Manson family began their spree. 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?

Buy a gun, get some firearms training! Peace of mind will follow.

No thanks. I have no desire or need to own a gun. The question was about my dreams. If you read my post, I am not a "crime phobic" person.

I wouldn't worry about that, unless you've had a long history of your dreams predicting the future. Dreams are mostly just our subconscious spewing.

I have had a recurring dream all my life of a massive wave coming in over a city. The details always vary, but the basic theme is the same. But I'm not seriously worried about the possibility.

If there have been many years of having this dream, it is a 'go to' theme that you have developed and is linked to some sort of external intrusion into your psyche. Maybe certain people or situations 'get into your head' and is hard to shake, consciously or subconsciously.
Typically the home in a dream represents ourselves, specific rooms are break downs of our lives even further.
Perhaps next time you have one of these dreams, consider what has occurred reciently that has your mind overly preoccupied and concerned. Likely a situation that you have little control over...to an extent.

imo id say it is passive inferences

dreams are the brains method of organizing fragmented/unresolved emotions...


I wouldn't take this as a predictor of something negative to come...

but as a harmless ghost of your past..... dealing with security/possible threats & conflictions


ironically this may surface when some things in your life is going well/ but there's a little voice/concern,,,saying watch out, somethings going to happen, it always does, a crisis will happen at anytime,,,so brace yourseld-be prepared

or

my god, if you watch the news....its all bad...some things are concerning you and you worry...and some of that worry brings up old unresolved emotions.


be still your mind what you have no control over...

I had the massive wave dream for years in my teens and twenties. Run! Like that was going to help.

It was either ARMAGEDDON or DEEP IMPACT. I can't remember which. They're both basically the same movie.

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.

You've brought to mind the scene in "An American Werewolf In London" where the main character has a nightmare of his family's home being invaded by monsters in Nazi SS uniforms who machine-gun his family and set the house on fire while one of them holds a knife to his throat and forces him to watch.
