To dream of a 1 dollar represents feelings about having the power or resources to initiate a desired experience. The power to initiate small or unimportant experiences. Attempting to make someone listen to you.
Negatively, dreaming about 1 dollar may reflect feelings about the power to initiate an experience based on “white lies.” Restoring or replacing something behind someone else’s back before they find out. Desperation to initiate an experience in way possible. Desperation to make someone listen to you. Hesitation to initiate something dishonest that others will never care about in a serious manner.
Example: A young man dreamed of stealing that was left on a table. In waking life he was considering lying to take the day off work to get a job interview for a better job. He felt he deserved a better job and was procrastinating about skipping work to try to get a better job. The dollar in the dream may have reflected his feelings about the power to skip work if he wanted to while feeling that doing so wasn’t very serious or costly to his current employers.
