Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook MONEY : Our dream studies have revealed some interesting meanings to money dreams. We associate money with value and money dreams seem to deal with the theme of value in a wider sense. One money dream occurred when the dreamer had a low self esteem. Another money dream happened just after the dreamer had particularly valued a friends support and help. Another money dream happened the night after the dreamer had felt a sense of self satisfaction because people had valued his advice. So money dreams seem to occur when the dreamer has been thinking about someone's worth or when they have been dwelling on their own self worth.

Money dreams also tap into effort. Money is earned through hard work so giving money in a dream can translate into a willingness to put in lots of effort in some real life situation. One dream of giving money occurred just after the dreamer had decided to put in more time and effort at work. He had decided to take time and care over reports rather than rush them. He felt sure that this extra effort would pay off with better results. People say time is money so money is a symbol for effort. Other money dreams also occurred when the dreamer had been trying hard.

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of money in dreams?
Money, coins, and cash in general can link to things that we see as valuable. This has several meanings and you should look for the precise meaning. It may link to an issue involving effort, an issue linked to self worth or it may refer the need to be respected or valued by others.

Money can often link to the effort you wish to put into something. If we value something then we will show effort. The more money then the more effort we are willing to put in. E.g.

"If I put just a little EXTRA EFFORT into it I am sure that people will appreciate it"[Dream Dictionary - spending just a little more money dream][the dream this quote is based upon is featured in full at the end of this article]

"I just want to MAKE A LITTLE EFFORT to show how important my co-workers are to me"[Dream Dictionary - giving away money dream]

"I really do like to keep busy. It really is important to keep my mind occupied. I do like to put in the maximum effort"[Dream Dictionary - parcel stuffed full of money dream]

Money is symbolic of value and in that can link to issues surrounding self worth or the value of one person above another. E.g.

"well its obvious that people have not agreed with him. He can criticize me all he likes but what he is saying is just his opinion and is probably WORTHLESS anyway"[Dream Dictionary - cashier in empty cafe dream]

"Who is to say that one person is more VALUABLE than another. The majority of CV#146;s are just a collection of total lies"[Dream Dictionary - money factory/mint dream]

"I really think that my former boss appreciated me and valued my contribution to the company. But I found out yesterday that he would never have me back"[Dream symbol - Benefactor dream]

Money can simply symbolise something that is of value in the eyes of others. E.g.

"I know that if she is going to listen and VALUE MY ADVICE. I have got to say things in a diplomatic way. If I offend her she will simply ignore me"[Dream Dictionary - money dream]
DREAM TIP : Dreams tend to be very much linked to the here and now. Most dreams will link to your feelings about events that happened the previous day. If something important is happening on the next day then the dream maybe about your feelings as you look forward to that. Dreams can also be about long term issues regarding our lives such as relationships, our own personality and our job. But those long term issues will probably have some special connection to the previous day.
THE DREAM - There are thoughts going through my head. They replay a radio interview I heard in real life a few days before. In it a sports reporter was saying that extra money spent on sports reports from cricket matches was of great value to the reader. It manages to sell a lot more papers. That really was valued

THE REALITY The dreamer was at the time writing a report for work. He took extra time over the report and carefully thought out each section instead. Overall he just put a lot of effort and care into what he was doing.

DREAM ANALYSIS The dream was simply about a radio report interview which had had an effect on the dreamer. The message is that you should take pride in your work and take time over details. Some dreams contain symbols which together make up a message. But this dream was of a story which itself was a metaphor. Its simple message was heard in real life and repeated in the dream world. His dream mind had decided to follow this principle and so the dreamer took a bit more time over a report he had to write. The extra effort paid off and he was praised.

Symbolic Meaning
MONEY : "Putting some extra effort into this report "

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I think its really worth taking a bit of care with my work. If you put some extra effort into something then it can pay off. It shows that you enjoy your job".
