We associate money with wealth, with possessions and material goods, with the possibility of traveling and fulfilling dreams… but what else does money symbolize? We are going to know its meaning and symbolism beyond waking life, to delve into the meaning of dreaming about money.
For the article we will be based on different dream interpretation books; As always, it is the choice of each one to believe in the messages that the unconscious transmits to us -or not- when we close our eyes, sleep and dream…
Dreaming of money: what does it mean?
We know that within the content of dreams, the material world appears symbolically to represent certain things. In the case of money, what does it mean to dream about it?
In real life and also in the dream world, money represents all kinds of material wealth. The reality is that, with money, we can make many of our dreams come true. However, as far as its dream interpretation is concerned, this is not so easy to do.
Money, in the dream world, is interpreted as a type of personal energy, which allows us to get the things we need, but also whims.
Generally, dreaming about money is a way that the unconscious has to express our personal energy. This energy is what allows us to carry out our actions. Thus, what happens with money in the dream is of great relevance, and it is very significant.
On the other hand, there are those who believe that the economic concerns that we have in conscious life or “real life” can act as a trigger for the formation of these dream images, which involve dreaming of money.
Energy and creativity
Thus, in the dream world and according to different dream interpretation manuals, there is consensus in considering that dreaming of money has to do with personal energy and the creativity of the person who possesses it.
There are other authors, however, who believe that dreaming of money symbolizes intimately desired things.
9 different dreams where money appears
Now, we are going to know different types of dreams that we may have in relation to money and the actions that we carry out with it. As we will see, each of these possibilities hides a different meaning:
1. Accumulate money
Dream with money that we are accumulating means that a pittance is about to come, and also imminently.
It is also related to the threat of a possible loss of it. Other authors consider that dreaming that we appropriate money (or that we have that desire), symbolizes the desire we have for another person of the opposite sex.
2. Count money
However, dreaming that we count money means the possibility of good profits that are to come.
3. Find money
Who has not dreamed of finding money? Although we can dream it “in life”, in the dream world it can also happen! This type of dream is related to an optimal omen, so its interpretation is very positive.
There are authors who believe that dreaming that we find a treasure, or a lot of money, together with the fact of being afraid of being seen taking it, is related to illicit relationships.
On the other hand, dreaming that we buy something and that they give us more money in exchange, means that the things we have recently acquired have a greater value than we imagined, in the material, sentimental and / or moral sense.
4. Make money
Dreaming of money that we earn, that is, dreaming that we earn a lot of money, has to do with small annoyances that we have in our day-to-day, although it is easy to solve.
5. Spend money
By contrast, dreaming that we spend money, or even that we waste it, in the dream world is interpreted in the following way: ruin will come shortly (the meaning is the same as dreaming about accumulating money).
6. Losing money
It can also happen that we dream that we lose money. In this case, the dream is interpreted as an omen of bad luck and possible danger in our life. It is also related to the fear of losing something very valuable to us in “real life.”
There are authors who specify even more, and who suggest that dreaming that our partner steals from us means that we “greatly exaggerate” our love, sacrificing too much for the relationship.
7. Lend money
Dreaming that we lend money is related to a difficult moment in our life, which we are going through (or will come), but which we will quickly overcome.
More specifically, dreaming that we give money to those most in need has to do with an act of gratitude towards life, which strengthens our spirit. This is interpreted in this way especially when the emotional framework in which we are immersed “in life” demonstrates it.
8. Eat money
To dream that we eat money -even though it sounds strange, it is possible-, means the arrival of a serious illness (remember that the interpretations of dreams should always be taken with caution, since the dream world is not a science, and less an exact science).
9. See money move
It is common to dream of money that passes from one hand to another. The fact of dreaming about money that gets out of hand, for example, can be interpreted as the loss of energy that happens to us in the presence of other people.
If, on the contrary, in the dream we do not stop earning more and more money, this may mean that we feel clearly in need of energy, so that we are becoming insatiable in this sense.
Dream about debts
In relation to dreaming about money, another dream appears that may also be related, and that is the fact of dreaming about possible debts.
Thus, dreaming about having debts is related to the fact that in conscious life we are not taking into account certain people who have helped us throughout our lives. On the other hand, in life, debts can become an important emotional burden, which is the same in the dream.
Such drag can prevent us from interacting properly with others. Thus, dreaming of debts is somehow warning us, at an unconscious level, that we must be vigilant with this type of situation.
On the other hand, the material world can also generate dream images, which makes the mere fact that we have forgotten about small debts that we have, generates great inner restlessness, so we remember debts in dreams.
Other authors from the dream world consider that dreaming of a debt means that someone remembers the injustices suffered. If in the dream we appear paying a debt, it means that after a discussion with someone we will reach an agreement. On the other hand, dreaming that we have a debt means that our instability does not scare us, and seeing a debtor in dreams means that someone trusts us.
