A spiritual thief is that part of us that has no respect for our or others? beliefs. When a thief appears in dreams, we are aware of part of our personality that can waste our own time and energy on meaningless activity. It literally steals from us. Dreaming of a thief links with our fear of losing things, or of having them taken away from us. We may be afraid of losing love or possessions. Also consult the entry for Stealing.
