  1. I always dream about money.. sometimes i dream of picking coins and bills on the ground ,many people were passing but its only me who is picking.. but lastnight was so strange.. i saw a sty and it is full of coins , i was like (wooowww) so plenty of money…

  2. I dreamt, I bought meat in my dream, I payed the person, and he tore the money I payed him in front of me and started laughing, so I gave him another money but he refused and asked me to go with a cheerful look. please what could this be??

  3. Recently I had a dream. driving a car with 3 children.. one boy and two girls.. suddenly don’t know which way to go. All the three Kids told me to hold on and they went to search the way out.. I waited and they didn’t turn up. I went searching for them and I found alot of silver coins in one side and a lot of money notes tied in many bundles .. I took some coins and one bundle.. when I came back ..I saw all tyhe 3 Kids back in the car ..I showed them and woke up.. Can please explain this. Thanks and regards.

  4. I had a dream that I went off somewhere away from I believe my family. I went to go do something on my own. Apparently I just randomly had turkey from last Thanksgiving that we never ate. So I went into this shop and apparently you could sell dead animals for money there. But when I was selling this to Turkey and it seemed a lot bigger than just a little normal Turkey for thanksgiving. And there was these two owners of the shop, one a man and one a woman. The man was telling me that these animals have to be in very good condition in order to be sold. As he was telling me this apparently the leg broke off. But it honestly seems like we were holding a huge deer not a little turkey. So all in all they gave me this little bag back after I gave them my animal. And then as I was leaving The woman told me something along the lines of ” don’t go around spending your $20 and giving it away freely like other people do in this town” . I don’t remember her exact words but I feel like it could’ve been similar to that, the meaning of it. So then I was walking away and I’m pretty sure there was snow on the ground. And as was I was walking I saw this other person walking beside me or near me. But I don’t think I would even talk to that person but I was interested in them or I was thinking about them. And I opened the bag and there was $20 in there that they gave me for the animal. I think there was some other stuff in there too but I don’t really know what. Didn’t look. But wherever I was coming from to go to that place to sell the chicken or turkey or whatever it was, I woke up when I was heading back there to my family, I think, I’m not sure. Yeah I have no idea what the heck that was.

  5. I dreamed that I unexpectedly saw money someone gave me to keep for her, my madam in particular, it was #200,000, so I was tempted to hide the money the more inside my suit pocket. please tell me what it means.

  6. In my dream I dreamt that I was paying for some merchandise and that a family member was the sales clerk who whispered in my ear to take back my money and keep it. So that I took my money back pretending to have paid for my merchandise/ items. What does this mean?

  7. A guy (only an acquaintance in real life, long time ago, disconnected now) was giving me a ride. I was sitting in a passenger seat. He had to pay something and asked me $1.40, the amount he was short (the total was over $10). I was not reluctant to give, but I did not expect to pay for a ride. And I gave.

    I was at my ex boy friend’s office to ask professional advice. He was with a woman (never seen her before, in real life, and she is none of his real life girl friend, either). She was wearing wedding ring , and she was a nice lady (his real life girl friends are all gold digging arse kissing sluts). I thought he married a nice lady, but I was not sure if he was married. I saw his fingers, and he seemed to eagerly try to show me his wedding ring (as I was not aware of his status, and I was only consulting professional opinion). Both of the rings (from her and him) were plain band, without a stone. He seems to be in good mood (not so happy, just ok, not sad).
    FYI, in real life, he wanted me, but I was not so interested in him because he was too selfish and shallow yet he was not aware of his selfishness.

    FYI, a few months ago, he appeared in my dream, staring at me, as if he was lost. His girl friend (the one he is with in real life) was jealous of me, and pushed me away when I was looking in the mirror to fix my hair in a powder room (she tried to take the mirror all to herself).

    And then, a few days ago, he appeared in my dream, again. I was moving out of his apartment. I noticed he had a baby. I thought he had a baby with his girl friend. I was surprised because he had a surgery not to have a baby. The baby was rather big (like 3 years old or so) and rather dark (not the skin color, but somehow darkness around the baby, black hair, I think, dark background, dark clothes, etc). The baby’s eyelash was thick and very long (like 1 inch) and black. The baby was emotionless. I hold the baby up.
    I was sitting in a bench in front of a house I was about to move in, while there were moving boxes outside (as if the movers were moving boxes from a van, I did not really see the boxes, but that was my impression). There was an old lady looking at me from inside the house through the window. I thought she was a landlady. I did not get a good impression about her, though (like a mean unkind landlady who is only concerned about money or so).

    Appreciate any comment please!

    • Did you feel sad when they tore up the money you gave them? i think it means that you gave someone something that really matters to you but they didn’t care and basically through it back in your face or you want to give someone something and you worry they wont care either way:
      money = worth
