To dream of measuring anything does not portend a good message. For to measure means you are in hardship and you need to be careful of your resources. If your dream imagery is about measuring cloth for cutting clothes, then you are likely to see financial constraints. If you see imagery of measuring out raw food for cooking, then you maybe facing shortage of food for your daily requirements. This dream is a warning, or threat simulation. This type of dream aims to warn the person of the need to be careful when doling out resources for personal use.
