Criminal

Dreams of being a criminal symbolize feelings of guilt. Did you do something wrong? Are you really the bad person that people say you are - or are you innocent?

If you're being confronted or chased by a criminal, you may be worried about a bad person who wants to hurt you or steal something from you. A murderer in a dream is someone in waking life that would like to make you "go away," which could be an enemy, a divorcing spouse or a boss who you feel intends to fire you. A rapist in a dream is someone in waking life who you feel has violated your trust or boundaries. A burglar in a dream is someone you perceive in waking life to be out to take something from you, which can range from your lifelihood to your self-respect. A serial killer in a dream often represents someone who rides roughshod over, fires or gets rid of people. It can also reflect the personification of fears of a "serial" loss, as in multiple miscarriages. A terrorist in a dream represents fears of a terrifying person or situation that threatens harm to its victim(s.)

Frequently a literal representation of a woman's (especially) fears of being physically attacked or sexually assaulted. Stalkers also may represent disturbing feelings or awarenesses that a dreamer refuses to acknowledge. Is it time to "face your fears?" Ex-spouses or lovers also may appear as stalkers in dreams; a person who "won't leave you alone."
