Christian Dream Symbols | Tyler Wolfe


Shopping is the activity that supports getting your needs met. As a symbol, it relates to being willing to take the actions that will result in self- care, abundance, and sustaining yourself. This can be either in balance and healthy or out of balance and reflecting a level of avoidance and escapism.

The nature of what you are shopping for and the sensations around this image in a dream will help clarify your interpretation.

Searching for something; research details for more clarity

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton


All of us shop, so a dream about shopping can simply be a reflection of our everyday lives. It can also mean that we are seeking something, or it might be an allusion to an idiom like “shop talk” or “like a bull in a china shop.”

Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia | James R. Lewis and Evelyn Dorothy Oliver


Vision: Buying something for yourself: a wish will soon be fulfilled. Shopping for food: your financial situation is taking a turn for the better. Buying toiletries: an invitation to a dinner or a party. Buying a lot of things but not taking them home: you are buying a new business, but the contract has not yet been written. See Shop.

Dreamers Dictionary | Garuda


A dream about shopping or being at a shopping mall means that those things that you need (affection, friendship, spiritual support, quality time with people you care about) are available to you. However, you may need to learn exactly where to look, how to select what you need, and how to ask for these things when you need them. This dream calls upon you to know yourself. Before you can ask for or get what you need, you need to figure out what it is that you want.

If you dream that you are lost in a shopping mall, you don’t know where to turn for support with a certain problem.

To dream that you are shopping for food and groceries symbolizes your hidden attempt to buy the attention of others.

My Dream Interpretation | myjellybean


Dreams of shopping represent that you are buying into a particular belief system or ideology. Shopping is a message from your subconscious mind to take your time and shop around before deciding upon the relationship or perspective that you will eventually buy into. See Retail Therapy.

Strangest Dream Explanations | Dream Explanations - Anonymous


For most of us shopping is not simply a necessity but a favorite pastime.

It is a source of pain, pleasure, recreation, and, at times, “quality time” with family or friends. Depending on the details in the dream and its emotional background, dreaming about going shopping may have several different connotations. Generally, if shopping in your dream is not a source of great stress and confusion, it suggests that those things which you need are available to you. Your environment may have readily available emotional, psychological, spiritual or physical support. However, you may need to learn exactly where to look, how to select what you need, and when to make a wise investment. This dream calls upon you to know yourself. Before you can ask for or get what you need, you first need to accurately identify it.

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar


Shopping often represents the possibilities in life, the decisions you can make, the variety of attitudes or activities from which you can choose, or something for which you are searching. The image of shopping presents a view of your life’s prospects and opportunities; it also represents the exchanges you are prepared to make to satisfy your desires. What you are shopping for may be relevant.

If you are shopping for food, you need sustenance but if you are shopping for clothes, you need protection. How much you buy in your dream may indicate your ability to take advantage of opportunities.

Not finding the item you want or discovering that the store has sold out of it may express frustration at not getting what you want out of life. A much- reported shopping dream involves the panic at closing time. Not being able to buy all you want before the shops close suggests anxiety that life is too short to achieve all your ambitions. Shop windows are symbols of opportunities in waking life that may be out of reach. The image may evoke frustration or envy that you are missing out on the good things in life, but it can also remind you that you still have the choice to seek out more accessible and affordable items.

The Language of Dreams | Patrica Telesco


Generally, if shopping in your dream is not a source of great stress and confusion, it suggests that those things which you need are available to you. It may also be telling you, however, that you need to learn exactly where to look, how to pick out what you need, and when to make a wise investment.

Strangest Dream Explanations

Money And Shopping

Money in dreams represents things of great value to you, but such dreams are not necessarily about monetary value.

For Jung, money is a symbol of the power required to achieve spiritual objectives. According to Freud, it is a symbol of an orderly or obsessive personality.

If symbols associated with money, riches and wealth—such as cash, precious jewels, treasure, expensive houses and cars, and winning lottery tickets—appear in your dreams, try to identify what money means to you in a non- materialistic sense. That this symbol appears in your dreams suggests that you need to assess what is important to you in life, as well as being aware of what price you are prepared to pay for your actions and desires.

It may be that gold does not represent the precious metal to you, but rather someone who has a heart of gold or who is a winner, just as a dream of treasure might represent the people you love in your life, a wealth of knowledge or a treasury of ideas. Do you associate money with freedom, power, desirability or your own personal worth? Do you believe that money can buy you happiness? Thinking about such questions should help you identify the things you really value in your waking life and you may in turn start to question the real value of your previous goals and aspirations.

The Curious Dreamer’s Dream Dictionary

Shopping Center / Mall

Shopping centers or malls are associated with making choices and in many dreams they serve as the backdrop for meeting friends, or trying to find the right item for yourself or someone else. Typically, these dreams feature friends and sales people; this suggests that such dreams aren’t associated with work but are about your social life.

If you encounter obstacles or get assistance on your dream shopping trip, these may symbolize real-life forces, both internal and external, that play a role in the choices you make in waking life and the satisfaction you experience. Women and teenagers tend to have this kind of dream more often than men or children, and the theme for these dreams tends to be choice and identity, and the ability to stay true to yourself whilst also satisfying the needs of others.
