My Money Dreams
When I was growing up, I could never remember my dreams. All my friends were talking about their awesome dreams and I was jealous I never remembered them. I was trying to fit in.
This resulted in me writing down every morning what I had dreamed of. After a couple of months, I started to remember my dreams better. This dream journal is something I have done ever since.
While I love dreaming, it is not always fun. You can be chased, drowned, or lose money. You can also win money, find tons of money, and wake up happy.
Naturally, I am a super curious person. I wanted to find out what my dreams meant. When I was in university, I started researching what it means when you dream about money.

It is important to note that it is my interpretation of what I learned. If you don’t feel like it means the same to you that’s totally fine.

Money is a symbol. Just like in real life, money symbolizes something like power, success, confidence, and wealth in dreams. While it can mean material gain, it can also mean richness in the more abstract sense of the word. The richness of wisdom, health, relationships, and spirit.
If you feel an abundance of money in your dreams, these things are present in your life. You feel abundant in your life and you feel that everything you need is provided to you.
If you experience a lack of money in your dreams, there is a lack of something. This can be other things than only money. It can be a lack of power, confidence, or anything else that you may feel is lacking.

You Find Money In Your Dream
Finding money is fun! Imagine that you’re going outside and you’re wearing a different jacket than you normally do. It’s colder outside so you put your hands deep in your pockets. Suddenly you feel something in your pocket. You pull it out and you’re holding a $20 bill in your hand. You’re super happy and excited, and it feels like someone has just given you money.

When you lose money in a dream, this can create stress. It can be as realistic as losing your wallet, or as sudden as the wind taking away your cash.

Appreciate what you have before you go out and get more.
You Steal Money In Your Dream
Stealing money can mean very different things to different people. This highly depends on your values – are you always doing what everyone says? Do you feel that stealing is very wrong? It can mean that you will do whatever it takes to get what you want. Despite certain rules or opinions of others.
Stealing money in your dream can mean that you want to fulfill your own desires and needs at the expense of someone else’s. This is where the feeling and context of the dream becomes very important. You could be feeling selfish or you could be feeling the pressure of having no other choice but to do this.
The person that you are stealing from has a big role in this regard. Do you like this person in real life? How does this person make you feel?
Stealing money in your dream does not necessarily mean it is bad. It could mean that you are taking back what is yours. Whether that is in a relationship, a material way, or other things.
With regards to stealing money, it often occurs when you are seeing no way out and you act like this is your only option.

What does it mean when you save money in your dream? Mostly it means that you are being responsible with your money, you have more than enough, and you are certain that you can keep that up.

The dreamer can resolve that by allowing others to come in, to share with others, and that will resolve the feeling of not having enough.
Saving extreme amounts of money in your dream may mean that you are only taking and not giving anything back. You are not okay with that and you want to change something about that.
If you use the personal wealth that you have for things that matter to, the feeling of hoarding money will pass.

If you are in your dream and buying something you don’t want to spend money on? Do you feel like you are wasting money? This can mean that you are spending your energy on something that is not giving you anything in return. You are wasting your time with this.
When you have the feeling you can’t find the item you need or there is not enough of something, it may mean that there is some feeling of insecurity underneath the dream. Maybe the goals you set for yourself are too overwhelming and you need to take smaller steps every day to get to your ultimate goal. Rome isn’t built in a day. Set your financial goals in a way that feels easy and attainable to you.
