Most of us wake up pretty happy when we’ve dreamed of coming into money… especially a lot of it! But when you’ve dreampt of finding money time and time again, and you still haven’t had a bag drop from the sky and into your lap, you tend to ignore your dreams of stumbling on cold, hard cash; you forget about it, and go on about your day trying to make ends meet.
Way back in your subconscious, though, money means a whole lot more than money. More times than not, whatever you see in your dreams means something else entirely.
Think of Pictionary…trying to guess what the picture you’re seeing really means…and honestly, it isn’t all that easy sometimes.
Depending on what’s going on in your waking life, seeing money in your dreams is usually a positive dream, unless your dreaming that you’ve lost it or it’s being taken from you. If that’s the case, you might want to change something that you’re doing in waking life that you know will cause negative consequences, but, we’ll get to that later…
So, back to one interpretation…when you dream of money, it can symbolize tangible or spiritual blessings. Something like, ‘when you do good, good will come back to you’ kind of thing, which is real, by the way…it’s called Karma, or ‘an eye for an eye’.
Many people dream of finding money while they’re walking down a sidewalk, or they suddenly find it in their wallet or purse. Since dreaming of walking on a sidewalk or street symbolizes you going down your life’s path, a dream of finding money along the way indicates that you’re going to be blessed with good fortune in some way in your waking life, for whatever reason. It really could be with cash, but usually it’s with something else, i.e., good health, love, help…things that you think are just good luck that seemingly fall in your lap all of the sudden.
The way that the money appears in your dream matters, too. Paper money is obviously worth more than coins in our minds, so seeing wads of money can symbolize that your blessing is going to be a large one. But, if it’s coins that you’re seeing, it can either mean that your reward is going to be modest, or one that ‘adds up’ in time.
Another thing you’ll see in your dreams is puns, so when you see coins in your dream, it could mean that there’s going to be a ‘change’ in your life very soon. What’s really interesting, though, is that you can interpret what kind of change is in your dream. For instance; if it is indeed a dream predicting a change, and you see a dime or a penny, it symbolizes a small change in your life. If you see a quarter, it symbolizes a bigger change, and if you see a half-dollar or a silver dollar, that’s a very big change…in fact, that’s the biggest change that you’re going to see in your dreams.
You’ll also get a hint about the change by paying attention to where the change was in your dream, too. Like I said above, if it’s on a sidewalk or road, there’s going to be a change as you’re going down the pathway of your life. But, if you dream that your best friend hands you some coins, then there’s going to be a change that has something to do with your friend.
Or, you can have a dream like I did, and see your husband come in the door and put several silver dollars on the dining room table (the dining table represents family, so this means a change in family)…and less than a week later, your elderly father father-in-law moves in with you…and causes many, big changes in your life…
If you lose money in your dream, it might mean that your about to lose, or your in danger of losing, some positive qualities that you already have…spiritual, physical, even mental. This one’s a little hard to grasp, but…think about your integrity being challenged because you’re offered a bonus at your job that should really go to someone else…maybe your co-worker that actually did all the work for it…would you take it? Well, if you dream that you’re losing money while you’re busy stealing money in waking life, you’re actually dreaming about losing your virtues of integrity, honesty, authenticity, and many more. It’s not a good trade-off, to be sure. But like I said before, if you’ve done something good for someone else, you will dream the opposite.
So, when you dream that you’ve come into money, it could mean that you’re about to find a little cash, but it probably doesn’t. In fact, it could indicate a change in your life, or that you’re about to gain something far more valuable…a virtue, a valuable character trait, or a type of ‘reward’ from your Higher Power for a job well done.
