This article is about dreams that talk about money. They are dreams of the future, given by Spirit, and often through a guide or angel to bring insight into your life. We will cover various topics such as how to interpret these types of dreams and what they mean for you.
Money Dreams – Dream Interpretation
You can have many different kinds of dreams about receiving money – they can range from simply finding some cash on the ground, receiving an unexpected check in the mail , winning a lottery , getting paid for doing something you enjoy, making investments that pay off etc .
They may not be necessarily literal but rather symbolic in nature where the actual event would represent another subject altogether like being rewarded for work or actions taken in waking life; it could also symbolize abundance and prosperity.
Living in a world that is material-oriented, we often lose sight of what’s really important about us and the true essence of life – our soul . Money should certainly not be our priority because no matter how much money you may have, it could leave you at any time; millions of people lost everything during the economic crisis that started in 2007; You could die suddenly or get very sick which will cost a lot of money to treat etc.
Understanding Dreams: Combining Psychology with Spirituality
Dreams deal with your subconscious mind, this means that they speak to an aspect of yourself including thoughts, desires, knowledge and memories you are currently unaware of; even though you may not understand them consciously at first, Spirit can use these dream messages to bring something to your attention and help you grow spiritually.
For example, a dream about money may reflect material desires that are present in your waking life – it could be your way of reminding yourself that you still have some issues emotionally or otherwise; sometimes the messages in dreams can be very vague and sometimes they come as such powerful dreams that it wakes up everyone in the house.
You need to consider other factors not just from an ordinary perspective, but also spiritual one because there is so much more to dreaming than what meets the eye; this does not mean that you have to believe in Spirit or religion at all, but trust me when I say that the universe is bigger than we know; including universal laws and powers like karma which works overtime and guides us towards our destiny.
There are no coincidences in life, if you think that a recent event may have been triggered by a dream then take it seriously; look at what was going on with your conscious mind before the dream and consider this when interpreting the message.
For example, say a young man dreamed about getting fired from his job because of spreading some racy photos of his co-worker – they had an argument and he feels angry about this.
Considering other aspects such as how is he feeling about himself, financial situation etc., we can see that there is more to this story than meets the eye – standing for yourself or taking responsibility for your actions takes time but most importantly it means having spiritual maturity which will make you better person and lead you towards a happier life.
Many psychologists say that dreams are “just” your subconscious manifesting as images from within the psyche; I would not go so far, but certainly recognize it as a powerful way for your higher self to communicate with you – remember that sometimes even if Spirit is in control of when and how they deliver the message, they can use different methods which may be completely out of the box.
Dreaming of Money: Manifestation Techniques
The power of money dreams: why do we dream about money? These types of dreams most often come into our lives when we need them having to do with taking action on something or going through certain experiences – this could mean deciding between two job offers, choosing between buying a house or staying in a rented one – there is so much going on in your subconscious mind that you need to take care of. Money dreams can also be big and powerful to the point where it could wake up everyone in the house, this may indicate change or growth along the spiritual path.
From what I’ve seen money dreams are spontaneous, meaning that they just appear often during meditation, while awake etc. On rare occasions I could see them as vivid dreams but never get the message at first (it was during my college years); one specific dream came to me several times which kept showing me a mountain and ocean. This must have been over 10 times and once it happened during meditation that Spirit sent me a clear message without any hesitation – “you are here to share Universal Truths with others and help people grow spiritually”. Wow, I could not believe it; I had to take a step back and pause for a moment because of such a powerful message.
To continue the example, from that point on Spirit guided me every step of the way- it was this same experience that provided me with the inspiration on how to start writing articles on dreams about money.
As you can see these types of dreams can be so profound that a person will never forget them – if they are meant for your life then they will come to you over again; even years later when something happens, Spirit may bring up another situation reminding you what’s really important.
I have no doubt that there is nothing accidental in life including all the coincidences that happened in my life – if you think about it, chances are mind-boggling to even consider. I’ve been having dreams since I was a little boy and trust me when I say that all these years later is still hard to believe that all of this could be purely coincidence; regardless of what school of thought or religion we belong to, there is definitely more going on around us than meets the eye.
That said, people who have had similar experiences will never question why they experienced them- whether or not you call it “coincidence” or “divine intervention”, whatever word may be used to describe it doesn’t really matter but one thing’s for sure- believing in something greater than yourself makes life filled with wonder and possibility.
Dreams About Money: Dreams as a Sign of Spiritual Maturity
The more spiritually mature you are, the less likely that your ego self will be controlling your actions – but most importantly you should not let it control how you feel. Believe it or not money is just one way to attest to our material success which does not necessarily mean that we are fulfilled in other areas of our lives.
Spirit has different plans for each of us… please do not forget that or deny yourself the opportunity to discover what really makes you happy.
A couple of years ago I decided to make some changes concerning my career because I was feeling this constant need from others to always strive towards the wrong path (it could be something obvious like going overboard in a business venture or something that is less obvious such as investing time in bad relationships). It was then when I started to feel this sense of liberation and happiness.
I remember traveling back home from work one day, I just got into my car and all of a sudden I felt an overwhelming urge to drive through the woods – it was Spirit talking to me saying ” you have been doing things for others long enough, now go do what makes you happy”.
As soon as I went through the narrow road going up a hill I became overwhelmed with joy – somehow those trees kept calling me; after about 15 minutes of driving around in circles (don’t ask), eventually relaxed and sat down on trunk of a big fallen tree – in that moment I felt a sense of peace like I never have before.
With that said, it is possible to become your own worst enemy when you’re trying too hard to be in control of everything which can create unnecessary obstacles for your growth – remember, “go with the flow” and do not fight Spirit if there is a feeling within you saying that something is wrong because the truth may hurt but resisting will just make things worse.
Money Dream Meaning
Many times we are looking at money matters through our filtered perception from past experiences. If a person’s subconscious or psychic self during sleep time fills the dream with a thought about earning more money then they will probably receive it even though it could lead to spiritual growth challenges such as unbalanced distribution of energy in daily life, feeling of lack, overworking etc. – this is something we’ll talk more about later on in the paper.
For most people, money can easily become an obsession which all too often leads to a constant chase after it – Spirit wants us to learn how to let go and have peace.
In another example, we are doing something that really doesn’t make us happy but because we need money or fear being labeled as failures (in our own eyes) we do it anyway- this is definitely one of the biggest obstacles for spiritual growth .
Believe me when I say that you never have to give your power away again – if you feed yourself with negative thoughts that are coming from ego-self then there will be a chain reaction that can eventually lead to a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Spiritual fulfillment and spiritual growth
Spiritual growth is highly connected to our perception and interpretation of things – some situations can be seen as either positive or negative, depending on the angle we are looking at them. So how do you know if you’re spiritually growing or not?
One of the biggest signs for me was when I started thinking with an open mind (conscious state), allowing myself to see things in a way that made sense to my whole being, rather than just think with ego-self (subconscious state). Ego self likes to argue and have its own opinion about everything but once you find out what your true heart wants then all those arguments are pointless.
Money is important for our survival in this physical plane but I believe it can bring more harm than good when we focus too much on it and learn to use it as a measurement of success (which is not true btw).
Some people can be so obsessed/attached to money that they’ll do anything to possess it, not considering if their actions or decisions are ethical or moral. Some people, however, have fears concerning earning money which make them play the victim role, saying “I just work hard and don’t deserve this”, and so the fight begins.
Spiritual growth occurs when we start working with love rather than fighting against each other because of ego-self – remember that everyone has a different journey ahead of them and there is no right or wrong.
It’s not uncommon for people to achieve success in their career while having financial problems at home and feeling completely unfulfilled (feeling as if they’re being ripped off).
We all have a chance to create our lives from scratch but it requires us to let go of ego-self, dead-end beliefs/thought patterns, fears that bind us and other limitations so we can start living a life that brings true happiness; the moment you’ll feel that you’re happy with your life then you’ve reached spiritual growth.
Some dreams about money just mean what it literally says – make sure not to read too much into them because Spirit uses symbolism when trying to teach only specific things which makes matters more complicated than they need to be.
Money is hard to earn but even harder to save, so once you have a steady income and are able to live comfortably then there’s nothing wrong with spending some of it on yourself. The biggest problem comes when our spending habits become too extravagant which causes us unneeded stress.
It may not seem that we’re in debt right now but who knows how much money we’ll have saved at the end of the year if we keep going like this? I believe everybody needs to have fun from time to time; in fact, sometimes it can be great just to relax and enjoy life without worrying about bills or other responsibilities (if only temporarily).
A lot of people nowadays make impulse purchases without really thinking because they’ve been taught that having material goods brings them happiness.
The scary fact is that most of those things usually end up in the trash; we’re just not meant to consume and discard, we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. I’m not saying this from a religious perspective but as someone who has been through all sorts of negative emotions during her life due to bad money management skills – self-forgiveness was the biggest step towards healing that came after getting rid of ego-self.
Spiritual growth isn’t about becoming rich quick or earning millions (yes it can help us if we do it ethically though), it’s about learning to let go of fear , anger/resentment/jealousy, anxiety and other negative thoughts which creates space for love and compassion to enter.
I’ve been through times when I didn’t have enough money to buy food or pay bills and it was all because of my old, negative belief system that was keeping me stuck; I realized that the secret to having more money is not about earning more but changing how you think (spiritual growth).
In fact, this whole article could be a short summary for The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, except there is no affirmation/suggestion to attract wealth with the Law of Attraction; its purpose is only as an educational tool so we can learn how certain thoughts affect our reality…or lack thereof.
Ego self will always try to sabotage us from being happy in this life and it’s up to us whether we’ll work with love or against each other (fear, anger…), because the reality is that most of us aren’t happy in this life which is why some people lash out from being unhappy and blame others for their problems. It’s amazing how people will only see what they want to see until they’re shown proof that what they’ve believed all their lives might not be completely right.
Never ignore your inner voice/gut feeling/intuition; if it feels as if you need to take action then do so without any hesitation because Spirit has a plan for you.
If we truly wish to create our own destiny then we must start living more consciously by taking responsibility for everything in our lives – no excuses! We have a lot to learn from our own lives and there’s no one who deserves to preach to us that life doesn’t revolve around money or material things.
As you continue reading this article, think of a time when your inner voice/gut feeling/intuition told you something but you acted in the opposite way; did it show up as external consequences? If so, then why do we keep ignoring our guidance system?
I believe God speaks to us all through different methods such as dreams about money – it shows us what we need to work on if we want to live a happy life. You’ll be surprised how many times some seemingly insignificant detail can make a huge difference in our lives once everything comes full circle…at least for me it has over the years.
I’ve always been told I’m too generous and sometimes it can come back to bite me in the butt; since I believe God speaks through many different methods, I must ensure that my thoughts aren’t contradicting His will for my life.
That’s why having dreams about money is so important because we can learn a lot from them such as being grateful for what we already have or how easily we feel negative emotions when something doesn’t go our way…and there are many other things that you’ll learn from your own experience after closer examination.
One of the best ways to attract abundance into your life is by helping others instead of worrying about yourself all the time – if you help others, you’ll be surprised at how much you grow as a person and how many blessings will come your way.
I know there are some people who have a hard time believing in the law of attraction because they haven’t experienced it yet or they keep focusing on the negative rather than positive thoughts but don’t forget to always keep an open mind – you never know when something might click in your head that could change everything; believing is not so much about thinking you can do something but being willing to try without any hesitation .
I was very blessed in my 20s and since then, things have gradually gotten better for me such as living in my first apartment (it was a room with a bed and bathroom at the top floor of an attached garage) that wasn’t owned by family members (and I was actually happy living there lol) and having my own vehicle (even if it was only a 1995 Ford Escort with an 1.8L engine that struggled to go up hills…I still love you little Escort).
I also felt really blessed when I got my first job out of school at 19 years old in a department store – even though the pay was low, I loved doing something different for a change so I never got bored.
Dreams about money can help us break bad habits by focusing on what we do want instead of obsessing about what we don’t have and most importantly: be grateful and appreciate everything you already have because there are people who don’t even have clean drinking water .
One thing that always amazed me in my store was how people can spend $60 on a nice shirt for themselves when there are children out there starving to death that would give arms and legs to have those same clothes on their backs; I think it’s time we start realizing the value of money.
I know that times were tougher back in the day than they are now but as far as I’m concerned, everyone deserves to eat 3 meals a day and live comfortably – what do you say? If someone treats me with respect then I’ll treat them the same way even if they’re homeless or poor because no amount of money will benefit anyone if they don’t touch their hearts.
I guess it kind of ties into the lottery dreams because not only do people want to win millions of dollars, they also want to be famous…and I think it’s fine to have a desire for any of those things – but what about the people who don’t get their share of the available resources? Why do we have such a short-term memory when it comes to helping our fellow man?
Take some time out of your busy schedule to volunteer at a local community center or shelter; you’ll be surprised how much you can help others by simply talking to them or listening.
All this stuff is dreams about money under the surface because we can never get enough of it – we want more and more because at the end of the day, it can’t buy you happiness so let’s stop comparing ourselves to others and try to make sense of why there is so much pain in this world.
When I was living in San Jose, CA (I used to love walking around downtown as a child), I remember looking up at all those buildings thinking that one day, I would work among some amazing people at my own office that overlooks Silicon Valley with fantastic views…but what if everything were taken away from me? Would that be the end of the world? No! It’ll only be devastating for a couple of days then we’ll have no choice but to pick ourselves back up by focusing on something else…and don’t you think that kind of attitude is important when we’re looking at dreams about money?
I never really thought about what other people had compared to me because I’ve always been pretty happy with whatever I have and today, it’s no different. Some people go crazy chasing after wealth while others just like to dream about money but the most meaningful moments are those you can share with your family or someone special – so why not do both?
If I won a lottery jackpot tomorrow and found myself in front of an escalator of cash going up to the clouds, there are still things that make life worth living besides dreaming about money: telling stories about how proud I am to be related with my relatives, seeing friends so they can tell me all their wild stories and get some fresh perspective from me, seeing my loved ones happy, waking up in the morning to see a beautiful sunrise…and more.
I used to dream about winning the lottery as a kid so I could be rich for the rest of my life but after experiencing other things in life that make me feel alive such as travel, sports and writing – it’s funny how dreams change over time by evolving with us and showing us new perspectives on what really matters: family, friends and inner peace.
When I was visiting Paris, France last year with my mom (one of the greatest memories that will be with me forever), we stopped at an overlook point where people sell various things so you can find something to take home as a souvenir. As usual, I gravitated towards little trinkets that seemed to have value but one person caught my eye because he made jewelry using coins from around the world – including quarters from the U.S.!
Since I’m always up for learning new things and having access to knowledge is essential in life, I walked over to him since there was no line to see his work…and even though I had nothing to buy, he was kind enough to show me everything he made.
I couldn’t resist buying a ring that had a California quarter inside it since I’m originally from Orange County and we visited San Diego before going to Las Vegas (another great memory). If you’re ever in Paris if you want some jewelry that reflects your love for traveling or where you live, I’d definitely recommend this man because not only is he friendly and patient but his creations are priceless! It’s all about putting dreams into action so what are you waiting for? Start looking at these blank pages as the gateway towards success; don’t be afraid of failure either!
This article is about dreams, after all – not just dreams about money. Dreams can be destiny or the ignition switch that starts your life on fire in whatever you do. I’m not trying to brag or sell you anything by saying this either – just being honest about the fact that it’s only through mistakes and failure will we ever reach our true potential so I encourage you to look at everything as a chance to succeed rather than thinking of it as an obstacle.
What’s worse than never making any mistakes? Not taking advantage of lessons learned from them…and please don’t worry about trying new things with people; different friends mean new wisdom and perspectives! It’s all about balance…and did I mention that if you follow your passion, awesomeness is sure to come?
Dreams aren’t random either – they’re the blueprints of what we can accomplish
As my father used to tell me: “If you want something, go after it with everything you’ve got and don’t hide your true self from the world or put on a mask…you only get one shot at life so make sure you do everything possible to succeed.”
Money Dream Meaning – So What Does it Mean to Dream About Money?
But if you see dreams about money and wonder what it might mean, here are some interpretations:
1) You worry about your finances
Dreaming of money can mean that we’re always worrying about our finances and even though it’s a necessary evil in life, we’ve let the stress of money control us…which is never good!
2) What you’re doing with your life
Other times, dreaming about money can relate to what we’re doing with our lives. Are we working in an environment where there are no risks or growth opportunities? If so, this might be pointing towards being unfulfilled or not growing as a person. Dreams are the way God shows us opportunities for change on earth but if you don’t see any changes or improvements within yourself when you wake up – then there’s still work to be done.
3) Your romantic relationships
And of course, dreams about money can also be related to what everyone wants – love and romance! Even if you’re in a relationship or content with yourself, dreaming of finding the right person for you can mean that we always want more out of life. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing because it can mean that we’re not satisfied with where things are in our lives.
Maybe you have a lot going for you and need even more challenges?
Or maybe change is difficult but necessary?
Dreams are all around us every night so take them seriously…and realize that we’re never stuck in one place forever. As long as there’s hope, anything is possible!
4) Worried about money
Of course, it can also mean that we’re worried about money or other financial issues in life. This is normal to an extent but too many concerns about finances will only distract us from what’s important.
5) Loss of power
Dreaming about money can hint at a loss of power within a relationship between you and someone else…maybe you’re feeling controlled by your partner? Or maybe it’s time for something new in your life?
6) Your not getting paid enough
The meaning of money in dreams can also be related to the feeling that we’re not being paid enough for what we do.
Does God Care About My Dreams and What They Mean?
Yes – He absolutely does care about all of our dreams and what they mean because He knows that only through following them will many of us ever obtain success. If you think about it, how else would anyone ever know how much potential someone had when a blank page stares back at them?
Dreams are the way God shows us opportunities for change on earth so without them, many people would never know their full potential until after death. But please remember that we’re all different and even though some of us will never be content with our lot in life, there are others who will be happy as long as they have food on the table.
There is no right or wrong way to live life unless you feel trapped into doing something that you truly despise (and not working towards your potential) – then it’s time to change!
Whatever happens, when we sleep, our minds are still active during this time too so nothing goes unnoticed by God either…from the dreams about money to anything else.
He knows what it’s like to do everything possible to succeed so events in our lives are ultimately up to Him whether we think they affect us directly or not.
But if dreaming about money isn’t necessarily positive or negative, why do we dream about it? Obviously, common sense would tell us that if we’re thinking about money a lot, there’s a reason for it…and dreams are a way to show us an alternative point-of-view or direction in life.
As humans, we live our entire lives making decisions and choices but often choose poorly so the dream world is another venue where God can help guide you back to the path of success.
For example: If you’re working at a job and have no plans on quitting anytime soon but dreaming about not having enough money might mean that something is lacking from your current situation. Maybe you’re happy with what you have now but dreaming of being on the bottom isn’t necessarily bad because maybe you feel that you deserve better or more.
If you feel trapped by your job but dreaming about money can help us see that God has given us opportunities to improve ourselves if we want. This is only one example so don’t let this limit your creativity either…dreams are powerful and can be related to many aspects of our lives.
Dream of Money – the Conclusion
So what are your opinions about dreams about money? Are you worried about finances in life and taking them too seriously? Do you worry that dreams aren’t all they’re cracked up to be at times when we wake up without any real changes on earth?
I’m sure we’ve all felt this way…and that’s fine. Dreams are a step towards the path of greatness but it doesn’t mean everything will always go as planned. Be patient with yourself and remember: nothing worthwhile is ever easy.
Dreams are such a rare occurrence during our lives so make the most of it…as weird as this sounds, if you find something that makes you happy – then don’t take it for granted because before you know it, time will have passed you by and you’ll look back wondering what happened.
So don’t make excuses or put off doing the things – if it’s something that will make you happy, then do it for yourself before someone else beats you to it! If you follow your passion in life, enjoying each day and realizing there are no mistakes, only lessons learned…then awesomeness is sure to come. Just remember: dreams show us opportunities for change on earth.
Dreaming about money can mean many things, depending on how it’s presented in your dream and where you’re at in life. dreams about money or even dreaming about money being lost is not necessarily a bad thing because there are many ways to interpret the symbolism of dreaming about money.
So if something worries you about your financial situation, relationship, or problems you are having in life…then make the decision to change now – because you never know when opportunity will strike.
