What does it mean when you dream about shopping?

All of us shop, so a dream about shopping can simply be a reflection of our everyday lives. It can also mean that we are seeking something, or it might be an allusion to an idiom like “shop talk” or “like a bull in a china shop.”

Shopping

(dreams)
For most of us shopping is not simply a necessity but a favorite pastime. It is a source of pain, pleasure, recreation, and, at times, “quality time” with family or friends. Depending on the details in the dream and its emotional background, dreaming about going shopping may have several different connotations. Generally, if shopping in your dream is not a source of great stress and confusion, it suggests that those things which you need are available to you. Your environment may have readily available emotional, psychological, spiritual, or physical support. However, you may need to learn exactly where to look, how to select what you need, and when to make a wise investment. This dream calls upon you to know yourself. Before you can ask for or get what you need, you first need to accurately identify it.
