From a symbolic point of view a bandit is not like a thief. The latter is characterized by stealing the property of others, while the figure of the bandit (mythologized as the legendary character who lives in the woods) has a positive reading since it embodies the vigilante who steals from the rich to give to the poor. Thus, the bandit often represents a hidden force trying to restore justice within the subject who is normally forced to comply with excessive rules and dispositions. The oneiric aggression of bandits reveals, to the female dreamer, an unconscious fear about her sexuality, warning her it is too inhibited, suppressed, or-on the contrary-burgeoning or insatiable.It is a typical reversed dream that portends the opposite of what you dream, that is, safety and security.

Types of sleep

There are two types of sleep that most of the humans undergo - REM and NREM. REM refers to the Rapid Eye Movement and NREM refers to Non-Rapid Eye Movement. Every individual will alternate these two types of sleep. Non-REM sleep will occur for a short period of time in the first stage of your sleep followed by the REM sleep. Dreams occur during the REM stage, where it lasts for 20 minutes. According to a researcher, J. Allan Hobson, dreams that occur in REM stage are usually forgotten when the individual wakes up. Studies conducted on patients during sleep shows that the frontal lobes in the brain, that are responsible for storing information, are inactive during the REM stage, which is the main cause for forgetting the dreams. Studies also show that this is the stage where you have the most intense dreams.
