The main symbols of dream interpretation tend to be very visual cues that are easily remembered later, such as a person, a car, a dog, an alien, and countless others that can help show you the meaning behind your dream.
But one that is less talked about or considered is numbers. You might dream of a certain sequence over and over, or just see a couple that seem fairly random.
Just like reading in dreams, numbers don’t make an appearance very often, so it’s important to pay attention when they do manifest.
Why Am I Dreaming Of Numbers?
Numbers may appear in your dreams in different ways, so they can mean varying things. It also depends on what is going on in your waking life at the time you have this dream, too.
One of the most important things to consider when trying to figure out what numbers mean in your dream is to recall how you feel when you see them.
This is one of the biggest clues to deciphering any kind of dream symbol, as it can help you see whether it is a positive or negative sign.
Typically, feeling happy, hopeful or excited when you see numbers in your dream points to prosperity, good luck, and optimism.
Feeling nervous, stressed, frustrated or angry when you see numbers in your dream suggests that they are there to warn you, or to act as an outlet for the negativity you’re experiencing in waking life.
Numbers Dream Meaning
Think about how lots of numbers make you feel in waking life. If you’re not a ‘numbers person’, and they stress you out, a dream of numbers may mean that you feel overwhelmed by waking life.
Maybe you’re spending too much time and energy trying to organize every single aspect of your life, but this has meant that change makes you nervous, and you no longer feel able to cope with it.
You find safety and security in familiarity and organization, but there is a chance that this may not serve you soon. It’s possible that you’re preventing some great opportunities or good luck coming your way.
This dream is a call to try to let go of being so organized or serious, and take some time to have some fun.
However, if your feelings change midway through your dream, and you find the numbers calming, this can denote how well you are managing your life. Though you are under pressure, you have as much control over your circumstances as possible.
If you do like numbers, or you live your life organized by them, this dream may reflect how meticulous you are, or point to good fortune in the future.
If you dream of numbers on a white wall, and they put you on edge or otherwise make you feel nervous, this refers to your anxiousness about time, and how you might wonder how much of it you have. Is it time to put this anxiety to rest?
A dream where you are searching for numbers in books or trying to decipher codes simply reflects how hard you are working in your waking life. You are trying your best to get everything sorted.
If you spot numbers underwater, such as at the bottom of a pool or a lake in your dream, this implies that you have some money worries, or another anxiety that is affecting your ability to see things clearly and keep a hold of your emotions.
Dreaming that other people are covered in numbers, but you don’t have any draws your attention to your uniqueness. It may be time to use your unique traits to your advantage in waking life.
Let’s take a look at a few numbers and what they might mean. If you dream of the number 666 or 601, this is a warning that you’re getting too attached to unhealthy habits or ways of coping, and this will only get worse.
The number 99 implies that you’re about to experience some miscommunication with someone you love.
911, or the emergency code number in your area in your dream suggests that it is vital you pay attention to what’s going around you right now.
You may be able to prevent a disaster of some sort, whether that’s in terms of money, illness, or a deteriorating relationship or situation in your waking life.
What Does It Mean To Dream Of The Number Zero?
While you might imagine that zero is a negative sign when it comes to dreams, you would be far from the truth.
In dreams, the number zero represents infinite possibilities and the potential you have your life. There are many paths available to you, and your choices and outlook will determine which one you take just as much as chance will.
However, if you are nervous when you see the number zero, this may denote feeling empty, or that your life doesn’t have much meaning.
It may be that you want some time away from life’s problems and the people around you to figure out what you really want.
Positive Changes Are Coming, If:
- You feel great when you see the numbers in your dream
- The numbers in your dream are connected to money
- You can clearly remember which numbers appeared in your dreams
- When you see the numbers in your dreams, you want to share with others
You Might Dream Of Numbers, When:
- You feel overworked or overwhelmed
- You feel completely in control of your waking life right now
- You have money worries
- You feel directionless, confused, or you want things to change
A dream of numbers can be confusing, especially if you don’t dream of any specific numbers that may narrow down the interpretation.
The easiest way to find out what your dream is trying to tell you is to pay attention to your feelings when you see the numbers in your dreams, as this will dictate whether they are a warning or a blessing.
