Cash or paper money, in general, represents the true value of everything, and seeing money in a dream is usually a symbol of nutrition or mental energy. Many of us have had various dreams about money during our lives, and when we wake up we think about what this dream could mean to us. Recent research suggests that there’s a link between particular events in your dreams and later real-world interactions with your loved ones. Other studies have also shown that dreams can influence your actions and emotional state the next day. In the very article “dreaming about cash,” Nevidya team will explain the semiotics of seeing money in a dream to help you find out some important interpretations of dreaming about cash.
1. Dream of finding a large sum of money
Money symbolizes the valuable psychological status of something in the dreamer’s mind. If you dream that you suddenly find a lot of money or find yourself in a hidden cave or room in your house/apartment that you have never been there before, then the money is a symbol of something in your personality that you have never been aware of it.
It could be a talent or ability (for example, the ability to write, draw, sing, analyze, or anything else) that has not yet been fully utilized. When you find such a treasure in a dream, it means that your subconscious mind is asking you to take more steps towards the flourishing of this talent.
Just like a biblical story that gives you a moral message and asks you to use your talents and not hide or bury them. If you dream that you have found a diamond or a pearl, this dream is a picture of the same inner treasure hidden in you.
2. Money in the dream as a material category
We all know that sleep can have a very direct language or message about your relationship with money and material values in reality.
Do you have a completely materialistic mindset? Are you very dependent on earning money and having a high social status?
Maybe you are one of those people who need something outside of your inner world to tell you what you deserve. So the message of this dream for you is that you need to find something inside you that keeps you happy and satisfied.
Moreover, you need to know that your self-esteem comes from deep within you, not something from without.
3. Dream of shopping or spending money
You may have dreamed of spending money. For example, you find yourself in a big mall looking for something special. This dream indicates that you are frantically seeking to satisfy and respond to an unconscious and unknown inner need of yours. You may dream that you are giving someone counterfeit money.
The interpretation of this dream is that you have a hypocritical relationship with some people in real life and you have not shown your true face to them.
4. Dream of earning or inheriting money
If you dream that you have inherited money, this dream can prepare you for a change in life, which will probably be positive for you. The donor wants to prepare the dreamer for future challenges and give him the energy and life he needs.
5. Dream of stealing money
If a person dreams of stealing money, this is a precautionary measure for him/her, that is, that person should beware of scams in which a lot of profit may have been promised.
So, this dream can not only be a symbol of empty hands but may also indicate significant financial losses. It is better for that person to work harder so that s/he can earn money in the right way.
6. Dreaming of winning money
Interpreting the symbol of monetary gain in a dream, for example through the lottery, is a symbolic dream that probably signifies great success and further achievement in the future.
If you set a goal, you expect success. But the interpretation of this dream does not necessarily relate to the dreamer’s financial situation but may affect other areas of his/her life, including family and the circle of friends.
But, if the dreamer makes money in gambling, for example in a casino, s/he will most likely have to expect financial losses. The dreamer should not engage in dangerous businesses and property speculations.
7. Dream of borrowing money from someone
If you dream that you are borrowing money from someone, this dream tells you that in reality, you may not have enough money, but you accept responsibility and depend on the help of others.
8. Dream of giving money to others
A person who dreams of giving money to others shares his/her money with them. This person is obviously a very helpful and generous person who can sympathize with his/her peers in difficult situations.
In the same way, the dreamer can trust his/her friends and relatives, who will help him/her immediately in case of emergency and need. For more information read the very article about giving money in dream – Islamic interpretation.)

A suitcase full of money in a dream is a symbol of a thriving business. But, it is also a sign of responsibility, which in the strict sense of the word promotes a dream. Similarly, a person holding a bag of money in his/her dream and moving on may be always worried about losing it in reality.
