Dreaming of possessing immense wealth may be thought of as a manifestation of the ego's desire for omnipotence, a return to the infantile state where all needs were met without effort.

Also: This could also be a compensation for feelings of powerlessness or inadequacy in waking life. Conversely, dreaming of another's wealth might represent the 'shadow' aspect of the self, the unacknowledged or disowned parts that we project onto others. This could be a call to integrate these aspects, to acknowledge one's own potential for success and abundance. The common themes among these possible variations, in essence, are an invitation to explore one's relationship with power, self-worth, and the material world.0

This dream could be a divine message to focus on your spiritual growth and personal development.

It could also signify feelings of spiritual inadequacy, urging you to seek spiritual growth. The common themes among these dream variations are a divine call to evaluate your spiritual journey and your pursuit of true wealth, which lies within your soul and not in material possessions.
