The dream interpretation of money

The Money Dream Definition

Generally, a money dream illustrates a feeling of confidence, power, and prosperity connected to your push to achieve opportunities and wealth in life.

However, it’s important to understand varying dream meanings and how they connect to the real world. For instance, saving money, receiving money, and earning money are all mainly positive money-related dreams that show your self-worth and confidence when awake.

To dream of negative dreams where you steal money, lose money, or are just anxious about money could suggest you feel financially unstable and feel powerless.

Therefore, the concept of “what does dreaming about money mean” can vary depending on how you dream about money.

Dreams About Money Could Make You Feel…

Positive Dreams

Confident: No matter if you find money, win money, or receive money, all of these dream examples point to a feeling of confidence in your life. A dream represents, often, how you truly feel about yourself, your decisions, and your life as a whole. If you are earning money in your dreams, no matter the circumstance, this shows you value yourself and your decisions.

Financially Independent: Likewise, a dream about earning money represents a positive outlook about money in your waking life. As long as you have a happy attitude about money in life, your subconscious mind will likely know you feel financially secure and you’ll dream positive dreams of money and its abundance.

Stable: Making money provides a sense of stability and control over one’s life. Therefore, if you dream about money in a positive light, this reflects your feeling of control and security in your life.

Negative Dreams

Anxious: If you are constantly feeling anxious about financial affairs in real life, chances are your dreams will reflect financial stress and turmoil at night. If you feel powerless in your own life about money, try honestly assessing your financial affairs and create realistic goals for financial success to minimize these stressful dreams at night.

Unstable: Depending on what your money dream is about could show signs of a lack of financial security/financial stability or an overarching feeling of instability in your life. If you dream about shredding money, stealing money, or losing money, these dreams all are more negative dreams suggesting you need to overcome some type of financial hardship and/or make difficult decisions in your life to have a better future.

Powerless: Because money and material wealth in real life often signify a sense of power or status, a lack of money in your dreams could signal feeling powerless in your present life. Since money symbolizes power and stability to a degree, in your dreams having no money or lack of it could be your subconscious mind suggesting you feel powerless in your waking relationships, financial situation, and life as a whole.
