A dream in which you receive money in your bank account, Cash App, PayPal, or any other money account, means there is an official opportunity coming that might set you up for a better financial standing.

Within the chaos, he started blogging and started earning tens of thousands of dollars per month. This soon turned into hundreds of thousands of dollars per month.

Symbolically, you are hungry but instead of taking the extra step of buying food to eat, your impatience overpowers you and you end up eating the actual money instead.

You are never in a rush to withdraw it out of fear that it might disappear and normally, it never does.

But, according to this dream, the same cannot be said of the lucrative opportunity you might have.

It might disappear any time, and that is symbolized by your money in an otherwise secure bank account disappearing.

What to do: There will always be risks and chances to take in life. Go ahead as long as you do not take careless chances.

Meaning of dream about burning money or a check

A dream about burning money means you might be working extremely hard at something that really is just wasting your time and money.

The dream usually means there is a great alternative at your disposal that you’ve not taken up because you are occupied with the one that actually is wasting your time and money.

The boss you saw in your dream stands for a trait of yours that, just like a real-life boss, controls you.

For example, you could be a fearful person, one unwilling to try the unfamiliar. Now imagine that you run a business within an industry that seems to be going down.

Everyone is leaving this industry and trying new things. But because you are afraid of the new, you remain in your business.

Months later, your industry comes back to life and since many moved out but you didn’t, you get flooded with orders.

This dream symbolism is in line with yin-yang philosophy, the idea that there can be a little bad in the best of things, and a little good in the worst.
