Dream world is contrary to waking world in some instances. If you dream of helping someone, its likely that you will be the one who benefits. If you dream that you have benefited from a turn in fortune, it is likely that some other person is the receiver of the good fortune dreamed by you.
If you dream of removing a loose thread from someone’s shirt, it means you will receive good luck or a windfall. If you dream that you have received good fortune by chance, like a lottery win, it means someone else will win the lot.
