Often, in spiritual terms, we must relearn how to handle money and value. We are ?on loan? to the physical realm. The image of paying rent gives this concept a focus. There comes a time when, if we wish to maximize our potential, we must find a space of our own. Paying rent allows us to be independent within someone else's space. Paying rent in dreams is to undertake a personal responsibility. We are prepared to look after ourselves and to take responsibility for who we are. Receiving rent suggests that we have entered into a transaction that will benefit us. You might like also like to consult the entries for Home, Money and Tenant.
