They Definitely Symbolize Something.....
First of all, what do we mean by a Number Dream? This dream would be one in which a number – or numbers – “stick with you” as important clues to your dream’s meaning. We say these numbers are VITAL.
Example #1: If you are recalling a dream and you think of “three sparrows on the fence,” the number three if VITAL. It “stuck with you.” If you had simply said (or thought), “sparrows on the fence,” the number 3 wouldn’t have had any significance – even if there were indeed 3 birds on the fence. If you remember the actual number of something, it is VITAL and plays into the interpretation of your dream.
Example #2: If you see a number on a building, paper, book, truck, car, etc. – the number or numbers you recall are significant. If I had a dream about a big red semi with the number 5502 on the back – and, yet, after waking from the dream, only the number 5 remains with me, this is the VITAL number from my dream.
What if I remembered each of the four numbers – 5502? It is doubtful that 5, 502 carries any meaning for me, so if I were to recall each of the numbers, I would then have to take them one (possibly two) at a time and see what significance they have for me.
- 5 – Counting myself, my husband and three daughters – there are 5 of us.
- 0 – Zero, none, nothing there.
- 2 – Two, to me represents a romantic pairing.
While each of the three above are “strong” associations I have with the three different numbers (this is where number dreams get especially tricky!) – if I were to dream of 5502, my own personal dream interpretation I’d give myself is this…
The actual “VITAL” number within this group is actually 25 and 25 symbolizes my favorite day of the year… Christmas! Yes, the numbers are out of order, but this is the VITAL number to me from this group of numbers. A VITAL number can be out of order because a sleeping brain really isn’t much better with numbers than I am with math. If I had been shopping for Christmas gifts, planning my Christmas meal, or simply counting the days to my favorite holiday, my dream brain would find this interesting and would create the number 25.
It may simply get them out of order!
How to Find Out What Your Dream Number(s) Mean
Let’s say YOU had a dream involving the numbers 5502. Here’s what I’d suggest doing when you have a number dream involving more than two numbers: Write it down.
Then, take each number one at a time, as I did with the 5, 0, and 2 above. If you have 5 cats, write that down. If you have 2 children, write that down. If, in your daily life, either your cats or children were especially on your mind lately – this could be your interpretation.
If you (or someone you care about) recently had or will have a birthday involving these numbers (25, 20, 50, 52, 55, 22), the birthday is significant to your dream analysis. A woman once had a dream involving the numbers 6 and 0 – she said she recalled “six plates on a table,” the number 6 on the front of a book, and someone in her dream telling her she had “zero” chances of making it to work in time. It turned out that her dad had a birthday coming up… you guessed it, the big 6-0… and she’d been planning a surprise party with her mom.
