After my grandma passed away, my mom (her daughter) began finding dimes everywhere she went. Mom believed that her seeing the dimes was Gram’s way of reaching out and letting her know she’s okay and still with us in spirit. I also found a couple of dimes in the wake of Gram’s death and was sure that was her way of hugging me after her physical body no longer could.
A couple of years later dimes started speaking to me in different ways. I would find them at times in my life when I needed to make a decision or a major change. I began to realize the dimes were validations from my spirit guides – their way of saying, “Go for it!”
For 6 years I lived in the same apartment. And although I was content there, I was beginning to feel a restlessness within me that it was time to move onward and upward. Two years before, I’d written on my aspirations list: Move into a new home by August 2011. Moving was just a thought in the back of my mind, though, because I didn’t take any action to find a new place to live.
Apropos of nothing, my best friend sent me an ad for a place listed on Craigslist. No pictures, which is risky on CL, but I figured “why not?” It’s not like I was going on a date from someone who posted a personal ad on CL, after all. That’d have been a different story and I’d give you my permission to slap me for that. I called the landlord and made a plan to go view the place. 15 minutes later, I was standing on the doorstep of the place, about to ring the doorbell. I looked down and there it was – a shiny dime. I smiled, picked it up and placed it in my pocket. Before even laying eyes on the home on the inside, I knew it was mine. I got the place (yay!) and have since moved in on (guess it): July 30th, 2011. Life-lists/dream boards do work! My landlord calls the house the “Good Karma House” and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t read my blog, but somehow knew those words would speak to me!
So, what is the spiritual significance of finding dimes?
We know that numbers have significance (11:11, anyone?). But what about a dime – number 10? The number ten means “We reap what we sow.” Ten (10) can also represent fulfillment and completion of something. I find that explanation resonates the most with me. Without fail when I need confirmation about a change or something in my life, my guides show me dimes.
But what dimes mean to me may not be of significance for you. Maybe you find pennies. Or quarters. Or fifty dollar bills (lucky #&*$@!!). There’s no right or wrong interpretation. The significance of the coins will speak to you in the form of your own intuition. When my mom finds dimes, it’s her mom speaking to her from the other side. When I find them, it’s a validation from my spirit guides that I’m on the right track.
No matter what your interpretation is, finding loose change around is a sign from the spirit world. It’s also the Universe’s way of reminding us to trust it.
PS – I was debating on whether or not to post this article or another one I have written today. When I was thinking about it, I walked into my bedroom and found a dime on my bed. I have no idea how it got there. Pretty sure my dog didn’t put it there. In seeing that dime, I had my answer. Today also would’ve been my grandma’s birthday. I think publishing this article today was the right choice.
