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.

      That sounds like a great dream. 🙂 Perhaps your subconscious mind was just showing a desire for a sudden windfall or perhaps it signifies a desire to receive more support (not necessarily monetary) from your partner.

      Perhaps the dream indicates that you are hoping for a sudden, unexpected windfall to help you out financially. It may also mean that you have discovered something that matters in your life that you feel has real value, but you don’t think you want to keep that tangible or intangible thing.

    My dream was a celebrity throwing a stack of money. And when I checked the money it was various some of them was yen, dollars and Korean won and each of them had different values. For example like 1yen 2yen 3dollars 4 dollars 5yen 7 yen. The value was repetitive with 7 numbers. Is this a good sign? I still remember all the 7 numbers. Should I go Do lottery

    I dreamt that I received a check from an old friend in the amount of $372 for my birthday and said nope I can’t take it. That is too much money!

    There is bad blood between us and we parted on not so great terms. And I purposely did not take the money because I did not want anything from her. This also happened in real life a few years back …

      Perhaps the dream represents your financial and social situation. You may wish for a windfall or some type of help, so you dreamed that the friend tried to give you money. You don’t actually want to have anything to do with the friend anymore in real life, so you turned the friend down in your dream as well.

      The dream shows a desire for a financial windfall or financial stability. Pregnancy often represents change or taking a new path in life, so perhaps you have an upcoming opportunity you are thinking about that could help improve your financial stability.

      Swimming and water is often an indication of your knowledge of change. The money and phone could be a reflection of your connection to the material world. You may be attempting to better understand your place in this world in a way that is disconnected from money and social relationships. You may find great benefit in taking this time to look inward, as this will give you insights about what actions you should take in the future.

    I dreamt I saw a wallet full of money on the ground and my 2friends were with me in that dream they were both happy saying we will share this money together. On our way home I saw a dwarf with someone saying he lost his wallet I looked at the wallet and saw his passport inside.. i felt pity on him and returned the wallet to him he was very happy and he said thank you God bless you.

      The dream seems to show that you need a sudden windfall or are worried about cash. At the same time, you realize that you don’t need the money as much as other people do. You’d rather do the right thing and share with others when the opportunity presents itself to you.
