If you are reading this article, you have probably had a dream about your car being stolen at some point in your life. This type of dream is very unpleasant, especially for people who love cars or need a car for their daily life. And when we wake up, dreams of this type often leave us with bitter feelings or worries that something like this will actually happen in our real life.
So, what does it mean when you dream about the car being stolen? Is it a warning sign, or is it just our subconscious communicating with us through this dream?
Dreams about your car being stolen often indicate that something in your waking life is out of balance. The car represents a positive sense of autonomy and independence. However, when it is taken away, you feel cut off and disconnected from your life and the world around you.
A dream about your car being stolen may indicate that you feel isolated or as if you were all alone. It may also mean you feel overwhelmed and have a lack of control over your life. Having your car stolen may be a way for you to feel powerless. Since the car is a means of free movement or forward movement, it could mean that something has been ‘stolen’ or somewhat removed from your life.
If you are in a relationship, a stolen car could symbolize a toxic and controlling partner who restricts your freedom and tries to take control of you. Or they may be parents who are constantly trying to control your life, even though you are an adult, or they are taking away your freedom (for example, they cannot accept the fact that you are gay or that you are in a relationship with a person of different skin color.) They constantly try to talk you down or forbid you from doing something that shouldn’t be their concern.
A car, like money, also gives us freedom, so this dream could signify financial losses, big unexpected expenses, or other money-related problems. It could also signify problems in your professional life or hidden fears about your money or material possessions.
Lastly, a dream about your car being stolen could indicate emotional turmoil. Something important that meant a lot to you may have been taken away from your life, and you may feel like it’s not you anymore. You don’t know which direction in life to take or what you will do since you no longer have what gave you the motivation and drive to go after your dreams. There’s a lack of direction in your life.
I wouldn’t say it’s bad luck, more like life lessons or a life cycle you have to go through.
If this dream is troubling you, take some time for yourself to figure out what it is saying. Analyze your current life and think about this dream motif. Perhaps it is warning you that you need to change something in your life and learn to live without something you couldn’t imagine living without before (such as bad habits or a specific person.) Or this type of dream could signify a new beginning, which will be preceded by difficult times.
