What Does it Mean When You Dream About Money?

By on February 2, 2016

Dreaming about money can be a positive or a negative dream depending on the situation. As long as you are not losing money, it can indicate that you feel empowered to go after your goals. When you dream that you have lost money, it is often an indication that you have a low level of self-confidence. Fortunately, dreams only show your current state of mind, so they are only indicative of a current situation. If the situation changes, the dreams will go away.

Gaining Power

When ever you dream that you have gained money or have a large store of it in a dream, it is an indication that you feel capable of achieving whatever goal or objective that you have in life. You are able to think about what you want and put those thoughts into action. Often, the presence of money in a dream shows that you are ready and capable of going after what you want. For positive dreams, money reflects power, opportunity and a world filled with possibilities.

Negative Dreams About Money

Sometimes, dreaming about money can be negative. If you are losing money or have a lack of money in your dream, it can be an indication that you feel as if your opportunities in life are being waste. It can show that there is an obstacle that you are unable to overcome or you lack the tools necessary to conquer the challenges of life. It may also be an indication that you feel like your enemies are more talented or resourceful than you are. Often, negative money dreams indicate that you feel a lack of self-worth, self-confidence or power.

Finding Money

If you dream that you found money, it shows that you feel free of the negativity of your life. Even when bad things happen, you feel like you are capable to overcome them. You feel positive, capable and aware of everything that is capable. There may also be a sudden opportunity that you can suddenly achieve.



Stealing or Being Robbed

If someone steals your money in a dream, it shows that you feel like the opportunities that you had in life are gradually starting to dry up. You may also not care what other people think because you plan on making a grab for power on your own. When you dream that you are robbed, it shows that there are mental patterns and thoughts that are removing your power. You may have felt that something is taking away your freedom or power.

You Won Money

When you have a dream about winning money, it represents that you feel lucky in life. You may not have expected a sudden change in your life or new opportunity, so it makes you feel like you have won the lottery. Some change that you did not expect is allowing you to gain additional power or resources.

Being Given Money

If you are given money in a dream, it shows that life situations or positive thinking are helping you in life. If there are obstacles in your way, you feel like you have the power to overcome them. Likewise, a dream about giving someone money shows that you feel as if those people can help you in life and you want to help them toward their dreams.

      It may be best to allow this dream to fade. Instead, take this time to focus on those who are in your life at this time. Take this as an opportunity to reach out to those in your life who need your love and attention. This will help make everyone more happy and understanding. Have a great day, Debra!

    I dreamt that my sister and I were sitting, maybe at a bus stop or somewhat. We were approached by two unknown male, one pulled out a gun and told us to pour the contents of our purses onto the sidewalk….I noticed he had laid his gun down and I ended up with it but it needed to be loaded….he pulls out another gun and pointed it at me I ran leaving my sister (something I would never do in reality) then I woke up. What does this mean?

      Your dream may be a reflection of your concerns. Your feelings of robbery may have been a sign of stress in your life. The fact that you took a gun may be a reflection of your desire to resort to violence or immoral actions to solve these problems. The fact that it was not loaded may be a sign that you should always take the high road. Have a great day, Diane!

      This may indicate that you feel like any good thing you achieve or goal you reach has to be shared with others. Judging by the dream, you may feel at times that it is unfair that your family expects so much of you. This type of feeling is quite normal, and the dream only shows your own thoughts, feelings and desires.

      The dream most likely represents a desire for affluence and financial comfort. Your mom is present, so you may wish that you had enough money to make her life easier as well. While a dream can only show your own thoughts and feelings, you can always hope that it comes true!

    I dreamt that I had a lot of money at home and someone broke in and tried to steal it. People were hurt and I ended up being the last one one to try to protect it by getting into a fight with the robber (unknown). I woke up mid-fight without knowing the outcome. What do you think this means?

      Your dream may be a reflection of your concerns that you need to protect something or someone. Take this time to determine what is important to you. The unknown robber may be a reflection of a person in your life that you don’t trust or are concerned about. If you think about this dream in the future, then allow it to cause you to treat everyone with compassion and kindness. Have a great day, Max!
