Inheritance Dream Symbol


Last Updated on

Inheritance – An inheritance in a dream is a symbol of legacy, and an identity that is connected to your history. There is often the promise of unexpected good fortune to come. This dream symbol does not mean that you will actually receive a literal inheritance from a rich uncle; instead, some old action or investment will finally come to fruition and bring you a deserved reward.

Alternatively, an inheritance may represent an aspect of your past that is currently affecting your life in some way, and which you need to examine and understand in order to come to terms with it and ensure that it works for your benefit.

  1. In my dream, I was with a grade school friend of mine, and he was with I friend of his that I didn’t know,
    although he seemed familiar. They had heard about this abandoned house with millions of dollars “hidden” inside, four million if I remember correctly. So we go to this house the three of us. The house was situated in an open pasture by itself with no other houses around. There ran a highway off to the left of the pasture and it reminded me of a place I once lived that I would pass upon traveling with family as a child. We get inside of the abandoned house, which seemed to be very active. The house had electricity, a boxfan operating, a bed with can foods opened and unopened that were sprawled across the bed, it was very weird to say the least. We began searching for this money, and I remember thinking someone has to live here, or someone has been here recently before. We find a small amount of the said portion of the money lying on an old run down couch, about thirty thousand dollars. Chris(my childhood grade school friend/3rd cousin) and his friend insisted that there was more, and we should keep searching. I was ready to go because I was feeling a bit uneasy because I felt someone had to live here! I ended up staying anyway because of Chris. The other guy who was apart of a known street gang(which is how he heard of the money)starting ransacking the house wildly. The whole time he was saying “where would you hide your money, if you didn’t want anyone to find it” over and over again. After several minutes of him going crazy searching for the money, he came across a large black bag style suitcase which seemed to be empty. Indeed it was empty, but upon unzipping the suitcase, there was a inside lining with pouches, all full with banded stacks of one hundred dollar bills at the very bottom! We’re talking millions of dollars! We started pocketing the money. I had a band of money in each of my pockets front and back, and I was content. But something was wrong, and something went wrong! The electricity failed, and day became night immediately outside! The gang member insisted that we take the money and leave anyway. But I said no, and to stop and just wait! Chris was fumbling around in the dark when he came across a digital recorder that was lying on a table. The gang member took the large black bag of money, and headed for the door. When he made it outside, a tree that was not there in the beginning, suddenly appeared with a bright colored X on the ground beside it. I told him to go no further with that money, and another step would cause something bad to happen. He didn’t listen. As he raised his foot to another step, a giant brown snake appeared and chased him back into the house. He was confused as to what was going on, and why we couldn’t leave. But I for some reason had an idea what to do. I told Chris to play whatever was on the digital recorder. As we all listened, it turns out that this house belonged to a renowned teacher/professor. His name was Ed Brianwright, and he wore a hearing aid in his right ear that affected his speech. As we listened to his lectures to some of his students, they made fun of how he talked. I remembered the last name Brianwright(which I don’t think is a last name at all)as being my Dad mother’s last name,(which isn’t the case in reality) and that meant I was lead here with you guys because my inheritance has been hidden from me. People know about my inheritance(family and friends)but I don’t. For this reason no one can leave this house with that money but me. This is what I told them it meant. Chris agreed, mainly because of the giant snake waiting at the door, but the gang member was infuriated. He was so angry he threw the money outside slinging it out of the bag, and throwing the bag as well telling me, “if it’s yours, go get it”! I was disappointed because I thought we were in this together. I told them I would give them a portion of the money because we were together. Chris was cool, and told me go ahead and see what happens. As I opened the door to the outside steps, the giant snake began to shrink in size, but only with every step I took. I picked up the black bag and started to gather the money into it. When I was done, the snake was a normal size, and disappeared. The night returned to day! While standing outside waiting for a ride, I nod my head to Chris, assuring him that I would do what I said I would do. He nods back to me telling me he believes me. This is my dream, and this is how it was. The End.

  2. Victoria Meaney on

    I had a dream my husband walked and and put our mail on the table in which I saw two envelopes brown with the big windows in them addressed to me, so my first reaction was damn my daughter who has some disabilities and I got denied for our social security…. I then came to a point that I opened the first letter and I read it out loud to my husband and it said dear (my name) we are writing to inform you we will be sending you over a course of the next 12 months a sum of 252,000.00…..i remember being so excited and happy but I couldn’t see who it was from that part was all blurry….. The next letter said the same thing only the amount was different it was 18,000 what does this mean, I heard you can’t actully read stuff in your dreams but I could only read that part of both letters nothing more

  3. I dreamed an long time friend left me his house and a lot of money,he is alive at this time and I pray for many years to come but he has been sick for several years and he does have cancer.

  4. i dream of receiving inheritance from an on woman who is a stranger in my waking life. i was contemplating whether or not i should take it. it seemed to me that i may be taking advantage of the older woman if i do so but at the same time it seemed justified since in the dream i was the only one who cared and loved that woman. It also seems to me that i was just justifying why i should take the business inheritance because it’s really huge money, plus it will give me a better chance to reach my dream.

    > what does that mean?
