Numbers can manifest in dreams in different ways. You may see numbers on a wall, in a notebook, on a billboard, on a license plate, or it may be less obvious than this.
You might dream of a certain number of objects, or people, or even have the same scenario repeat a set number of times (see also What Do Numbers Mean In Dreams?).
But what does it mean to dream of the number three?

What Does The Number Three Mean In A Dream?
The number three may manifest itself in your dreams when you need to look at the bigger picture of your life.
We tend to separate our thoughts and decisions into certain events or times in our lives, instead of taking a step back, and seeing where our choices have led us, and where they might lead us in the future.
It may be that you’re repeating the same patterns over and over, and your dream is urging you to break the cycle. Maybe you’re thinking too much about the past or the future, instead of here and now, which is the only thing you have a say in.
Three can also represent the different aspects of yourself: your mind, your body, and your soul. It may be that you’re focusing too much on one or two of these but not the third, and you need to bring it back into balance.
If an object manifests itself into your dream three times, or you see three of something, this is generally a good sign. It implies that whatever you’ve been waiting or hoping for is around the corner, but it also draws your attention to many possibilities that are open to you.
Things don’t have to be ‘black and white’. Maybe you’re only considering two options in a situation where there are three. It might be worth exploring.
If you dream of seeing the number three, maybe scrawled or projected onto a wall, or on paper, this implies that you’re not getting your message across to other people.
This may be deliberate, where you don’t want to be judged by someone, or maybe you’re just not being clear about what you want or need.
A dream scenario like this can also mean that you’re not using your potential or energy to your advantage. You’re focusing on the wrong things, or you’re not thinking about what you can do now to help you in the future. Make things a little easier for you in the future.
Dreams of the number three suggest that something needs your attention, whether that’s a situation you’re ignoring or part of your life that’s out of balance.
Dreams with a single number can be much easier to interpret than those with sequences to decipher, but it’s also important to consider how you feel during this dream when you see the number.
Feeling confused, nervous, or frustrated when you see the number three suggests that a part of your life is out of balance, and you need to do some work to get back on track.
