We give you some of the meanings a dream of losing a wallet can have:
Losing an item in reality
The simplest reason for having a dream of losing a wallet could be actually losing a wallet or some other item of great importance in reality.
The shock of the event you have experienced is probably still strong and your subconscious transferred it into your dreams as well.
If you recently lost a wallet or something similar, this dream probably doesn’t have much significance for you.
It could, though, point out that you have been absentminded lately and you need to pull yourself together so you don’t cause some damage to your life.
Losing something of great value, such as experiencing a personal or material loss
Because wallets in our dreams often represent our sense of identity and self-worth, this dream could also be related to experiencing some event in reality, which has to do with losing something valuable in life that could either be a personal or material loss.
We often feel unworthy when we loss someone from our lives, and also losing something of material value could be a reason for feeling a lack of worth and question our abilities to achieve success.
Being overwhelmed with too much duties
We might be prone to having dreams about losing a wallet during periods of great stress and having a lot of duties we need to perform.
These circumstances cause us to be distressed and not being able to focus on important matters.
We might become forgetful and neglecting our wellbeing. If this is the case, consider the dream a warning to take time to relax.
Organize yourself better and delegate some of your duties before the stress you are under begins causing you damage.
Feeling insecure, threatened, or helpless
Because our wallet symbolically might represent our sense of confidence and identity, losing it in a dream might reveal our current state regarding these areas.
You maybe feel threatened by something or someone, or you feel insecure about something, or you might be feeling helpless in some situation and you don’t know what to do.
After this dream, you should ask yourself whether something makes you feel helpless or insecure, or there is something in your life you feel threatened by and try to deal with it and confront it.
Loss of self-value
In some cases, we might have a dream about losing our wallet when we don’t feel good about ourselves and we have lost the feeling of self-value for some reason.
Maybe you have experienced something which caused you to feel worthless or not good enough, and if you have these dreams recurring, you should try to confront that situation and figure out a way to gain your faith in your personal value back.
Loss of identity
A dream about losing a wallet could be caused by our sense of losing our identity form some reason.
Different situations in our lives can cause us to feel as if we don’t have an identity anymore.
For example, you might be living in circumstances where you are not allowed to speak your mind or you have to obey someone’s rules, and you feel bad about it and very restricted.
Also, we might fear that someone or some situation might cause us to give up on our identity, and that could be the possible reason for having such a dream.
In some cases, you might have this dream because for some reason you feel that you are losing your identity.
An example of such situation could be moving abroad and needing to adjust to the new surroundings and people, which requires you to change a lot and give up on some important parts which make your identity.
