A dream about shopping or being at a shopping mall means that those things that you need (affection, friendship, spiritual support, quality time with people you care about) are available to you. However, you may need to learn exactly where to look, how to select what you need, and how to ask for these things when you need them. This dream calls upon you to know yourself. Before you can ask for or get what you need, you need to figure out what it is that you want. If you dream that you are lost in a shopping mall, you don't know where to turn for support with a certain problem. To dream that you are shopping for food and groceries symbolizes your hidden attempt to buy the attention of others.
