Thoughts around money, power, and financial security are coming up for you.

A bank is a construct of modern society created around the concept of protecting the abundance of the average individual. When examined more closely under the scrutiny of symbolic meaning, a bank connects more to fears around money and the desire to hoard abundance to maintain a sense of security about future needs. You may be concerned with keeping your sense of prosperity safe and guarded.

Universal Landscape: Money as power; financial security.

Dreaming Lens: What feelings were evoked by the dream? Was the bank austere and intimidating? What occurred in the bank? Who was there in the dream? Was actual money involved? Did you feel safe about the bank’s involvement in your finances?

Personal Focus: Money is a complicated issue for most people, making any image that relates to money difficult to interpret. There are many contradictions in the way with which this symbol can be associated. Rife with paradox, your own personal relationship with money must be part of arriving at an accurate interpretation. This can be challenging, as most people operate in varying levels of unconsciousness where wealth is concerned.

A bank is a construct of modern society created around the concept of protecting the abundance of the average individual. When examined more closely under the scrutiny of symbolic meaning, a bank connects more to fears around money and the desire to hoard abundance to gain a sense of security about future needs. Additionally, the institution of banking is founded on the greed principal: those who have more tend to profit from those who have less. While perhaps a necessary function in today’s modern world, the essence of a bank connects more to lack than to prosperity.

A bank is where money will be safely guarded while increasing in value over time. Yet in the world of finance, it is the least risky forum for investing and, therefore, represents caution where abundance is concerned. It is also the primary cultural institution connected to expanding lifestyle choices through the borrowing of money. However, this is more likely to connect to living beyond personal means than actual expansion. The reality of being unable to meet a bank’s demands include foreclosure, which represents loss and the consequences of overspending.

On a surface level, banks represent stability, longevity and bedrock of foundation, both personally and communally. Consider your relationship to banks and banking, both in the dream and in waking life, and include your thoughts about money, credit, debt, and financial insecurity when interpreting this dream symbol.

The bank represents your pool of resources, wealth, and accumulated energy. Therefore, dreaming that you save money or store jewelry or valuables in a bank reflects a clear need for safety and security to address the problems of life. On the contrary, if you withdraw money it means you will have enough strength and confidence to face such problems. Banks, especially the safes, represent your inner warehouse, your source of psychological potential. The unconscious is telling you to use your skill and energy reserves: your talent. Also, the dream can have a more literal meaning: you do not need to worry about the safety of your assets, as they are well kept.

If you dream of robbing a bank maybe you are making too much effort in something; there is risk of failure due to lack of resources.

If in the dream you deposit money in the bank you will soon receive financial support. If, however, you see empty boxes, it predicts financial doom.

Where ‘treasures’ are stored; material security.

If you are making a deposit, you are adding to your assets.

Banks and vaults in dreams represent your psychological potential. Your unconscious may be urging you to start using your inner reserves and energy rather than locking your talents away. On the other hand, your dream may simply be highlighting your need for financial security.

If you dream of robbing a bank, it may suggest that you are depleting your inner resources. If, in your dream, you were depositing money in a bank, this suggests feelings of security in waking life, although such a dream may also contain an element of wish- fulfillment.

Banking in dreams can refer to something you are storing within yourself; perhaps you are withholding emotion or important information. Freudians would regard dreams of safes or strongboxes as representing female sexuality, since these things usually contain valuables. As places for hoarding things, they may also suggest greed or an inflexible approach to life. Money is a symbol of spiritual power for Jungians, so the safe or strongbox may represent a storehouse of insights into your unconscious mind.
