Many people want to know what their dreams mean, and it is now becoming popular to read books and online articles to see why you are dreaming about certain things. It is becoming easier and easier to find out what your subconscious mind is telling you. In this article, we are going to take a look at the significance and meaning of numbers in your dreams. 

What Does it Mean to Dream of Different Numbers?

Numerology in Dream Interpretation

So, what is the meaning of dreaming about numbers? Generally, these dreams help us to find out what our lives are all about. To take an example, we’ll look at number 2. If you dream about this number, you are looking for peace in your relationships. It can also mean that you need to compromise. Each number has its own significance, but they all point to organizing your life.  

If you dream about a certain number more than once, the number has more significance. It doesn’t have to just be a number; you can dream about several objects. However, the number is more important than the objects themselves. 

Numerology experts say that single numbers are more important than double digits. If you dream of say 43, you should add them together to get 7. This is the number that needs to be interpreted.

Dreams about numbers can also predict an event coming up. Perhaps you are going to get a promotion, get engaged, or have a baby. It is a good idea to keep a dream diary so that you can write down your dreams before you forget them. In the future, you may look back and see that the dreams did come true.

Some experts believe that odd numbers are more aggressive than even numbers. They can even indicate negativity. Even numbers, on the other hand, are thought to indicate peaceful events.

Does the Number Represent a Date of Significance?

You can dream of a number that is significant to you. It could be someone’s birthday or anniversary which you might have forgotten had it not come to you in a dream. This will remind you to contact that person either face to face or by sending a card or gift. 

Numbers can also look back into your past to remind you of something. For example, if you dream of the number 97, it could indicate that you should remember something that happened in 1997. Perhaps the issue wasn’t concluded satisfactorily, and it needs to be addressed.

Athletes and Their Numbers

If you are a fan of football or basketball or indeed any game that involves wearing a shirt with a number on it, you might have a dream about it. It could indicate that this player is your hero, or it could tell you that something exciting is going to happen in the next match.

Meaning of Lucky Numbers

Some people believe that dreaming of numbers is lucky. If you dream of certain numbers, perhaps you should use them in the lottery or to back a horse. However, gambling can become an addiction, so tread carefully.

Units of Measure

If you see numbers on scales or rulers, it could mean that we are trying to measure something in our waking lives. If we see numbers on scales, for example, it could mean that we are trying to lose weight and get down to this number.

Here are the Common Meanings of Numbers in Dreams

As we have said, single numbers are the most important when interpreting our dreams. If we see, say the number 1905 it is a good idea to add the digits up. This would make 15 and if we added 1 and 5, we would get 6 which should be the number to look at for interpretation. 

In this section, we will take a look at the meanings of each number between 1 and 9.

Number 1

The number 1 is probably one of the most important numbers you can dream about. It can indicate that your life is going to go through a change or that you will have a new beginning leading to a different life. 

Another meaning of the number 1 is that you need to concentrate on your inner life. Perhaps you need to reconnect with important people in your life or take up meditation. You may have to become self-reliant and independent. 

An alternative meaning of the number 1 is that you need to put all your energy into one single task. Perhaps there is something at work that needs your undivided attention.

If you see more than one number 1, the significance can be greater. If you see the number 11, it could mean that you are going to get something you have been striving for. It can also mean that you need to look inside yourself to get what you are looking for.

Number 2

The number 2 represents balance in your life. You may have a relationship that needs looking into so that you know whether to carry on with it. It could be toxic to your inner self. Perhaps you may have to look at your finances and decide if you are overspending on certain things.

Seeing the number 2 might indicate that you have to choose between two options. You may want to delay this, but if you dream about the number 2 it can indicate that it’s time to make a decision.

Number 3

If you dream of the number 3, it will have something to do with your creative nature. Perhaps you need to explore the arts to see if that is where your skills lie. It could be in the theater, as a writer, or as a painter. On the other hand, it could also mean that you need to give yourself a full makeover and present a new you to the world.

Perhaps you haven’t been expressing your ideas clearly in the workplace or at home. If so, the number 3 can mean that you need to consider the way you are presenting your ideas. Perhaps you’re not explaining them clearly.

The number 33 is especially important in numerology so if you see this you are being told to connect with your soul so that you can reach enlightenment, peace, and clarity.

Number 4

The number 4 is more concerned with earthly things. It can represent the 4 corners of your house telling you that you need to organize your home or maybe even buy a new house.

Another meaning of this number is that you are afraid to break away from routine and that it’s about time you made some sort of change.

Number 5

If you are thinking about traveling, you might see the number 5. It is a sign of adventure, energy, and daring. You could be looking for new opportunities to explore. It is also a sign of acting on the spur of the moment, without thinking of the consequences. This could be either a good or a bad thing.

The number 5 can also represent the 5 elements, water, earth, air, fire, and aether and they can represent calmness and harmony entering your life.

Number 6

The number 6 represents family and home life, as well as telling you to take care of yourself. It indicates that there will be peace and harmony in your relationships as long as you show the same consideration for others. 

Number 7

The number 7 is often thought of as being mystical and if you see it in your dreams it encourages you to reflect on yourself and to examine your thoughts and feelings. It is a number that is also associated with rest and retreat.

Number 8

It is encouraging to see the number 8 in a dream. It indicates that you are being cared for despite everything that is happening and that things will turn out alright in the end even if you can’t see it. 

Another meaning of the number 8 is concerned with wealth and business. It tells you to look over your finances to make sure that everything is as you would like it to be. If you see the number 8 in numerous dreams this can mean that wealth is coming your way.

Number 9

Number 9 often refers to a period or cycle of life-ending. There will be new beginnings and unfinished business will be concluded.

Another meaning of the number 9 can be that you need to get involved in the community such as helping with a charity or getting involved in humanitarian activities. You may also see the number 9 if you have done a good deed and your subconscious self wants to see a positive outcome. On the other hand, the number 9 may mean fear of payback for committing a bad deed.

Final Thoughts

As we have seen, numbers in dreams have a special significance. Single numbers are stronger than multiple numbers, but multiple numbers can be added together to become one number and this number should then be interpreted. We hope that this article has helped you to understand the meaning of numbers in dreams.
