Back when we were kids, we used to play pretend with paper money. We do this mini grocery store kind of game and dream about having one when we grow up.
But, what do these events mean when they appear in our dreams? Do they also represent fun and celebration?
9 Messages When Paper Money Appears in Your Dream
But, what if we dream of these things? Is this a message for us to be reminded of its value?
1. You have lost many opportunities in life
If you dream about paper money and it is in its wrinkled form, this can signify the opportunities you have lost. Generally, new and fresh dollar bills symbolize wealth and good luck. On the other hand, the crinkled ones symbolize bad luck.
Unlike gold coins and silver coins, paper money can be easily damaged. So, when you experience such dreams, this represents the opportunities in real life that you may have lost, especially when you take these opportunities for granted. If you ever get new opportunities, do not be afraid to grab them.
Aside from wrinkled paper money, when you dream of old money, this can represent your exhaustion from your current life situation.
One time, I had the chance to switch jobs. I got an opportunity to be paid higher but I was afraid that I might not like the new environment I am about to see. But, I filled myself with courage, and today, I have not regretted a single day.
2. Someone is trying to deceive you
So, what you are encouraged to do is to pay attention to the people that surround you. Counterfeit money represents fake people. These people might be your spouse or business partner. Always keep in mind that fake money is not just about material gain but may also be about dishonesty in all aspects of your life.
3. Your life is unstable
The location where you found the money in your dream also matters. Spiritually, a dream about finding paper money on the floor could mean that your current life situation is unstable, especially financially.
You are experiencing financial difficulties, and you do not know how to support yourself or your family for the next few days. Thus, this dream is a reminder for you to find ways to build a better life.
Moreover, when you pick up this money, this can mean that you are trying your best. If you are able to reach it, keep in mind that you are about to end this instability. A steady future awaits you as long as you keep on working hard and you set your mind to never give up.
In addition, a dream of reaching paper money is also a message for you to change the direction of your life. Sometimes, money dreams represent failures. You might want to end your relationship with your girlfriend or boyfriend, find a new career, limit your spending habits, or do anything that can affect your financial growth negatively.
4. You need to resolve your life problems
Problems are also represented through dreams. Thus, dreaming of paper money also represents problems in life.
When you dream of finding money in the air or somewhere higher than you cannot reach, this means that you need to resolve your real-life problems. We cannot deny it but there will always be days when problems appear in our life, and instead of facing them, we tend to escape them, especially when we cannot think of resolutions.
The past week, I dreamt of having this large amount of money in my dreams. I was aware of that dream, and this article made sense because, at that time, I had to resolve financial issues as well. My credit card statements, dental fees, class enrollments, and other expenses were due, and frankly, I escaped all of these thoughts because I do not know how to resolve them one by one.
5. You worry much about your future
When you dream about paper money, and in your dreams, this money in your purse or wallet is lost, which can represent your fears and worries about your future. It is about negative connotations in your mind.
In real life, losing money causes financial stress and depression. Thus, when you experience this kind of dream, this speaks of the negative emotions your subconscious mind has.
Aside from financial problems, you might also be worried about your relationship, you might be grieving, or you might be thinking too much of your career.
Generally, you worry because you are afraid of disappointments. What you are encouraged to do is to learn to accept what is about to come and deal with the possible problems with optimism.
It is okay to worry about what may happen in the next part of our life, but, if we keep on thinking about the future, we will lose the opportunities we have in the present.
6. Your career is about to bloom
Your financial situation will improve from getting a salary increase and many more financial blessings in the near future.
However, a dreamer should also know that this bloom will not be achieved without hard work and determination.
So, if you want a lot of money in your real life, you have to fill yourself with willpower, persistence, and perseverance. If you have been working hard for something, this is a signal that you will soon get what you have been praying for.
7. You do not have enough self-esteem
When you dream about paper money, and in your dreams, you are counting this money in your pocket, this can represent your insecurities in life.
You are counting money because you are trying to compare how much more you need in order to be like others. Your sense of self-worth and self-confidence is low because you feel that you are not as great as others.
It is okay to feel these emotions sometimes, but you might want to use them positively instead. Always keep in mind that you are worth it and you are precious as others. You are more than enough and a counting money dream means you should never question your worth.
8. People depend on you emotionally
If you dream about paper money, and in your dreams, you are giving this money away from others, this represents your trait of being dependable. Generally, this is not about people depending on you for money, but it is about your good behavior of being a companion to others.
You are more than ready to invest your time for others just so they can feel less burdened in life. You are a great advisor and you know how to be there for your family who is seeking help.
Additionally, when you lend banknotes to other people in your dreams, this represents the big things others owe you. On the other hand, a dream interpretation of borrowing banknotes could mean that you are helping others so much that you haven’t saved anything for yourself. You sacrifice too much just to make others happy and this behavior will not help you grow.
9. You failed to make the right decisions in life
If you dream of money notes, and in your dreams, this money is burned or ripped, this represents your wrong decisions in life.
If you know that you have chosen the wrong path, for example, a career or a course that does not fit your passion, keep in mind that it is never too late to find what is best for you.
Additionally, if you cannot undo your decisions, find some ways to improve your situation. For example, if you have started a family without being mentally, physically, and emotionally prepared, you might want to choose a path that can direct you and your family into a brighter future.
This dream is very relatable to working adolescents. In life, you might have just started saving money, and meeting the wrong circle of friends made you become a spender. Instead of putting more money into your bank account, you keep on withdrawing, making you a broke person. So, you have to ask yourself, are these decisions – the choices of friends and situations I make – will be beneficial for me?
Indeed, dreams about money mean positive and negative omens. They represent fortune, material wealth, and at the same time, financial loss and deceit.
Generally, a paper money dream is a good dream as long as you know how to deal with it. If the dream is sending a warning signal, you might want to be cautious of how you behave financially and emotionally in your daily life.
