Dream dictionary meaning Alms

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

To dream of alms or almsgiving in connection with a religious rite refers to material goods that will soon enter your life. If you perform a religious act in regards to alms, then times are going to be happy in the future.

What does it mean to give to the poor in your dream?

Alms are basically gifts of money, clothes or material items given to the poor. So what happens if you dream of giving alms or receiveing them? Being poor in a dream can indicate that you may need to focus on yourself for a while. In my view, this kind of dream indicates that you should be watching what you spend money on. If you see a poor man in a dream this can suggest that you may need to overcome obstacles in life. To help this poor person by giving clothes or gifts can indicate ongoing support will be needed in life. To see a large number of poor people in the dream can suggest that though others you will always get what you want.The key to this dream is for you to begin to place the balance in the right way. With an understanding of the spiritual side of life, you need to be able to open up more to others, as well as yourself. Having alms featured in your dream demonstrates the need for communication with others so that whatever you do focus the mind, you should consider what is in it for others. In other words, how many people will benefit from your actions? The more people will benefit, the more successful your endeavors will be.

In your dream:

  • Given alms to others = happiness.
  • Dreamed that you are part of a secret order = delay but for the best.
  • Been in a strange land or place = will rely on others.
  • Received alms from someone you know = you will gain advice going forward.
  • Asked for alms = others want to connect with you.
  • Made alms = you will give advice to someone who needs it.
  • Distributed alms to the poor = take some time out.
  • Expected alms = happiness will be yours.
