Let’s play a game. I say a word, and you say the first word that comes to mind. Ready? Here we go…
What did you come up with? Often the first word we associate with another word can point to the deeper meaning of that word within our subconscious. When you play these word association games, you can discover how you really feel about something, which will then lead you to understand what the symbols in your dreams may mean for YOU.
In Dream Town, I had just finished having my makeup professionally done. I went to pay the makeup artist, but I couldn’t because I didn’t have any money. My hubby had to pay her. I felt powerless. Angry. Foolish. Why don’t I have my own money? Why do I need to depend on someone else’s money? How can I change this?
What does money mean in a dream? It depends on the dream (you knew I was going to say that, right?) One symbol doesn’t mean the same thing for every person in every dream. Just like one symbol doesn’t mean the same thing for every person in waking life.
Thankfully we have these little things that happen every night to teach and guide us – and they’re called DREAMS.
For future reference, here are some things money may symbolize in your dreams. Take a look at the dream, your emotions, and your associations. Then you’ll find the meaning (or just ask for my help).
Money can represent how you value yourself. What’s going on with the money in the dream? Is there an abundance of it or very little? Are you over valuing yourself, or not valuing yourself enough? Is money growing on a tree but you can’t reach it? You need to value yourself more. Do you open your wallet and wads of cash are flowing out but instead of feeling successful you feel guilty? You might be exceeding your value, tone it down a bit. Know your self-worth, but get off your high horse.
Money can represent success. Are you working on a project in waking life and now you’re dreaming of being wealthy? Congratulations, you are well on your way to finding success with that project.
Money can represent power. Who is controlling the money in your dream? You or someone else? You? Awesome, keep it up. You’re doing the things you need to be doing for yourself to maintain power. Someone else? Figure out a way in your waking life to feel powerful. What will it take for you to feel that way?
This has me thinking deeply about my finances, my self-worth, and my power. I foresee some big changes coming up in my future.
I see dreaming big but living small.
I see hustling hard but being present.
I see sacrificing material for purposeful.
I see peace instead of chaos.
