Dreams can deliver coded messages in the form of numbers. Find out what the angels want you to know.
Dreams are curious things.
Sometimes they reveal your unconscious mind’s desires and anxieties. But at other times they’re so much more. Especially when you see numbers.
Some people use their dream numbers in games of luck, such as the lottery. After all, they must be “lucky” numbers if you see them in your dreams…
Most of the time, though, they meet with disappointment when they don’t win the jackpot.
Does that mean those numbers aren’t meaningful?
Not at all. Maybe they’re simply looking in the wrong place for meaning.
Find out why people dream about numbers and what messages those dreams are trying to send.
Numbers in Dreams
When spirit guides send divine guidance through your dreams, it’s time to pay attention.
It’s just that, sometimes, it can be hard to understand what they’re trying to say. You can look up dream dictionaries online nowadays. But that doesn’t make your nighttime number encounters any less mysterious.
Let’s see if we can clear up the mystery a little bit…
There are different ways numbers can appear in your dreams. Seeing an individual number or a sequence of numbers is relatively common. Sometimes you see the number indirectly in the dream. And sometimes, it’s the center of your dreams.
A repeating number is also common and has a variety of interpretations.
You may not see actual numerals at all. Sometimes the numerical representation shows up as a number of characters or objects.
For instance, you may see a row of three pumpkins on different surfaces in your dream. The pumpkins may not necessarily be significant, but the repeating number “3” is.
Now that you have some idea of how numbers may manifest, you probably want to understand why they do, right?
Well, that answer isn’t so simple.
Significance and Symbols
Numbers can signify a variety of things. And you may see more than one type of number in each dream. Some numbers you may see include:
Events and Memories
Sometimes your mind tries to remind you of important events or memories by showing you numbers associated with it.
The appearance of numbers in dreams may be a benign reminder of a house number or address in the past or present. Maybe you’re meant to remember something important about the house, or what happened in it, that’s relevant to your present.
It could also represent your own age or a significant date of an event.
Is your anniversary coming up?
Your mind may try to remind you of the date so you don’t forget it this year.
For example, if your dream number is 18, it may mean different things to you. It could be your birthdate. Or the birthdate of a loved one.
Numbers can also represent the year that something important happened to you. If you dream of the number 94, it could symbolize something that happened in 1994.
Numbers and Athletes
Sports jersey numbers may also appear in dreams… That is… if you’re a sports fan.
For example, you may dream about a number that coincides with your favorite athlete’s uniform number. This may mean that the actual athlete is the dream symbol, not necessarily the number.
Of course, if sports mean nothing to you, this probably won’t apply. Dreaming of the number 12 doesn’t mean that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is your symbol if you don’t care about football. Or sports.
Numbers play a time-keeping role in dreams sometimes. Think of it as a daily planner while you’re asleep. You may be in dreamland, but your mind is still organizing the events of your waking hours.
Another take on dream numbers is the “lucky” number theory. Like the example earlier, you may see your lucky number in a dream and believe it’s a sign to play the lottery.
The “lucky” number aspect may not mean a jackpot win, though. Instead, it may be your subconscious mind helping you make a major life choice or decision.
Logic and Organization
On the other hand, some people believe that when a person dreams of numbers, they’re searching for logic and understanding in their lives.
Do you remember doing basic arithmetic exercises back in school?
There’s a certain orderliness needed to get to the right answer. For some people, numbers point towards that need for organization. And it manifests as numbers in their dreams.
However, that’s not all there is to it.
No matter what you believe about the numbers in your dream, there’s a deeper meaning.
Each number has its own vibration. They contain their own power and significance. So, when you see certain numbers, they may also be messages for you.
Especially if you see them repeatedly.
Even if it’s simply the address of your childhood home.
They are all symbols. The trick is to determine what they mean and what you should do about it.
Angels Are Always Watching You
Did you know that your guardian angels keep an eye on you? And sometimes they try to communicate…
The problem is that angel messages can go undetected because they’re oftentimes sent in dreams. And then you may miss out on signs from your angels because you don’t remember.
Seeing those recurring numbers can be your first clues to messages from the angelic realm.
Remember how each number has power and meaning?
You can decode celestial messages by knowing how to read the numbers.
One of the first things you have to understand is that numbers have their own vibration and frequency. And everything in existence operates on vibration and frequency.
The use of numerology goes back a long time. The ancients thought of numbers as a form of universal language.
Pythagoras, the famed mathematician, once said that “numbers rule the universe.”
If you look closely, you’ll find numeric patterns everywhere. They’re visible in geometry, music, and nature. You can even see these patterns in the movements of celestial bodies. It’s these patterns and vibrations that carry the “code” or message in the natural order of things.
And that’s also where your divine guidance lies.
According to Nikola Tesla:
“If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.”
Decoding a dream number to find out its power and vibrational frequency is relatively simple.
There are a couple of ways you can look at numbers. Most numerologists believe that single digits have more power than double digits.
For example, if the number 45 is in your dreams, you reduce the double digits into a single one. Simply add the two digits together to get a single one. So 45 becomes 4 + 5, to get the number 9.
Generally, the foundation numbers (1 through 9) have more power and significance than double or triple digits. Each of these individual numbers is the basic foundation for all higher numbers.
Another way to analyze your dream number is to examine the numbers individually. If you see the number 45 repeatedly in your dreams, look at them individually instead of adding them. That means instead of looking at 4+5=9, you’d look at the meanings of both 4 and 5.
You may also dream about longer sequences of numbers.
For example, the number 1208 might have the qualities of 1, 2, and 8.
Some will add these integers together to combine 1+2+8 = 11. When you have the number 11, it’s like you have the qualities of the number 1, only with increased weight.
Another general theory is that odd numbers are negative or aggressive, while even numbers are the opposite. But you can’t just listen to messages from even or “positive” numbers. That isn’t the answer. You need to understand the full message behind all the numbers.
And sometimes that means heeding potential warnings as well.
Numbers are like life. That means that numbers are neither good nor bad in themselves. It’s all about balance.
How to Analyze the Numbers in Your Dreams
Now that you know what your numbers could signify, it’s time to figure out what your dreams mean. Learning the meanings of the foundational numbers is a good start. They’re the building blocks that other interpretations come from.
Seeing a sequence of numbers amplifies the original number. It can also mean that your angelic guide really wants you to pay attention to that number. This is slightly different from the angelic numbers listed below.
Take a look at some interpretations of the main foundation numbers:
Seeing a number 1 in your dreams can indicate a new beginning or a fresh start. This new beginning may be one that you’re currently undergoing, or it can indicate what’s on the horizon.
The number 1 in dreams may signify an energetic gateway has opened for you. When this happens, you need to watch your thoughts and focus on the desires of your true heart, because they’ll manifest quickly.
Alternatively, this individual number has a more traditional meaning. It could mean autonomy, confidence, or the ego.
If you see it in dreams, it could mean that you’re on a winning streak – literally or figuratively.
Depending on your interpretation, this number could also mean that you need to develop more individuality. It’s the number that represents self-development and creativity. So that may be an area you need to focus on as well.
The number 1 as a single digit or repeating numbers like 11 and 111 may be a reminder of the connectedness of the universe. It could symbolize the Collective Unconscious that every living thing shares.
If the number 1 is a time of solitude and individuality, 2 is the opposite side of the coin. Generally, it signifies partnerships and relationships. Seeing this number in dreams could mean that you need to pay attention to something in your relationship.
This number is all about balance and compromise. The need for balance in your life could point towards your social interactions, budget, or time. Whichever area it is, it may be time to stop investing so much into one part of your life, to the detriment of all the others.
The number 2 can also have a literal meaning. It may be telling you that you have to make a decision about something in your life. But you’re waffling between 2 options.
Seeing this number may mean it’s time to make a decision.
The repeating number 2 in dreams can mean the manifestation of miracles. It could also mean new opportunities are on the horizon. New ideas are taking shape and growing into reality.
So it’s important to maintain a positive attitude and focus during this time. Negative things can manifest just as easily as positive ones if you’re not careful.
The number 3 is commonly associated with creativity and communication. Seeing this number in dreams can mean that it’s time to pay attention to how you communicate your ideas.
The number 3 may also tell you that it’s time to create something yourself. You may be at the peak of your creativity when you see this number. If you’re an artist or musician, this may be the inspiration you were waiting for. But creativity isn’t necessarily limited to art pieces.
You can use this creativity in other parts of your life as well, such as creating a solution to a problem or creating a new identity for yourself. When you see the number 3, your mind is ready to build and construct.
Also, seeing a 3 in dreams can indicate that the “third time’s the charm” for people who believe in luck. If you were struggling with something, a lucky third try may herald a better chance of success.
When you see 3s in your dream, it’s a message directly from your angel guide. It symbolizes asking for help, which many interpret to mean that divine guidance is yours for the asking.
The number 4 is a great number to see if you’re looking for grounding and support in your life. It can also symbolize loyalty and reliability. This number is also associated with houses and strong foundations.
It may have, in a very literal sense, something to do with organizing your current home or buying a new one. It can also indicate that it’s time to build strong foundations and work hard to achieve your goals.
The 4 corners of the number represent the 4 corners of a home. It symbolizes stability and strength. But it can also mean restrictions and limitations.
If you’re struggling to think of a solution to a problem, it may be time to “think outside the box” that the 4 represents.
Likewise, the limitations and restrictions may be inside your head. And your mind wants you to take note of that.
Maybe you’re holding yourself back or feeling inflexible. For example, you may be standing in your own way and stopping yourself from reaching your own aspirations or personal potential. If so, seeing this number sends the message that it’s time to examine the things that may hold you back.
Are you where you need to be?
Dreaming about repeating 4s indicates that the answer to that question is “yes.” It’s meant as reassurance that all your hard work will pay off with pleasing long-term results.
It’s time for adventure if you see this freedom-loving number. The number 5 is all about energy and daring.
If you dream about this number, it could mean that you’re looking for some of that in your own life. You want new opportunities, whether you acknowledge it in your waking hours or not.
Dreaming of 5s can indicate an exciting time in your life. It’s a premonition of important discoveries and adventures, and these changes may alter the course of your life.
On the opposite side of the spectrum, the 5 also represents spontaneity and impulsivity. But it may mean an excess, without consideration for the consequences.
Materialism, addiction, hedonism, and compulsive behavior may cause you to see 5s in your dreams. It’s a call for help asking you to address those behaviors.
The number 6 is the number for family, unity, and cooperation. Seeing this number in dreams means that it’s time to bring peace and balance into your family unit. And into the relationships around you.
The number indicates that it may be time to nurture those around you. Show extra care and love for children and partners. And don’t forget about yourself.
This number isn’t simply about taking care of others. You also need to make sure that your own spirit is in balance.
Sometimes, the number 6 symbolizes a new love or relationship on the horizon. This doesn’t necessarily need to be romantic in nature. It could also mean a new addition to the home or a new friendship in the works.
Seeing a number sequence of this number may make some people apprehensive. But multiple 6s simply mean that you may need to find a better balance between your goals and spiritual self. Look towards finding a balance that focuses on spirit and service, instead of the material side of life.
The number 7 is a very auspicious number to dream about. In numerology, it’s a mystical number. Seeing a 7 is a call to a higher level of knowledge. That could mean seeking more enlightenment or education in your life.
It may be time to meditate for greater spiritual awareness. Find a quiet place and search within yourself. The path for more enlightenment may be right in front of you.
On the other hand, the number itself may be an indicator that you are on the right path. It’s an affirmation that you’re doing exactly what you should be doing. And that you’ll see positive things flowing your way.
Dreaming of this repeating number could mean that you’ll reach your goals soon. If you have enough strength of purpose, you’ll overcome all the obstacles in your way. It’s also a sign to listen to your intuition for guidance on this path.
The number 8 is the number for infinity. When you see 8s in dreams, it’s the universe’s way of telling you that it always cares for you.
It’s also the number of abundance. Happiness, love, bliss, and money are different ways this number’s abundance can manifest in your life. Seeing this number means that you don’t have to worry about your wants and needs.
A sequence of 8s has a slightly different significance from a single 8 in dreams. Rather than abundance, repeating 8s may mean that you need to ensure you keep your finances in check. The universe provides, but you also have a personal responsibility to ensure a solid foundation for you and your family.
Dreaming of the number 9 is all about endings and completions. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
This symbolic ending paves the way for new beginnings in your life.
It’s also a reminder to live up to your divine purpose and spiritual potential. The number 9 is the humanitarian number that signifies service to others. This may be a wakeup call to use your natural gifts to serve humanity.
A Word About Zeros
The number 0 is a special case and has many interpretations in dreams.
Generally, if you reduce multiple-digit dream numbers down to a single digit, the 0 gets lost. But it can mean something on its own. Especially if you see it as an individual number.
It could mean:
The circle of life
Feelings of wholeness
Going in circles
However, if you dream of 0s with other numbers, it may help to look up the other number meanings, too. Interpreting the sequence as a whole may give you more insight into its meaning.
Angel Number Sequences
Angel number sequences are a little different from your typical dream numbers. These sets of specific numbers stand out from other numbers because they’re supposed to catch your attention.
They’re efficient and effective methods for receiving divine guidance from your spirit guides.
One woman found the power of angel messages when she was at her lowest.
Mia found out that her guardian angels were always watching over her, even when she least expected it.
She’d been living a relatively unremarkable life for a 20-something woman. It was a bit constricting, but she didn’t know how to break out and try something new. She hit an all-time low when her boyfriend left without a word. She was devastated. Depression was her only companion in those days. And it never left her.
That was when she started noticing a recurring number sequence popping up everywhere – even during her waking hours. Everywhere she looked, she saw the numbers 555. She woke up to a clock that read 5:55. Whenever she turned on the TV, the channel was on 555. And it was a channel she never watched.
To top it off, she received mysterious phone calls on her cell. She never answered, but the phone number always ended in 555.
Mia finally sought answers about the significance of 555. She found out that it was a message from her angel guide telling her that now was a time to act. And that her guide is watching over her.
Not everyone receives such direct divine guidance. But even the subtler messages can carry deep meaning.
Here are some common angel number sequences and their meanings:
Angel number 111 – A gate of opportunity is opening up.
Angel number 222 – Don’t stop working! Your plans are growing into reality.
Angel number 333 – Your spirit guides are nearby and ready to help.
Angel number 444 – Angelic assistance is nearby.
Angel number 555 – Major life changes are happening.
Angel number 666 – It’s time to balance your thoughts and focus on spirit and service.
Angel number 777 – Number 777 is a positive sign that the angels are happy with you.
Angel number 888 – A warning that a phase in your life is ending.
Angel number 999 – This is another completion sign, but on a major scale.
Did any of these angel numbers surprise you?
Numbers are not inherently “bad” or “good.” Like everything in nature, numbers have a balance of both positive and negative aspects. Warnings are just that, and positive messages don’t guarantee success. It’s all about what you do with them.
Paint Your Life by Numbers
Numbers play a large role in your life, whether or not you realize it. They are in every area of your life.
The power of numbers is present in the name you carry and the numbers on your license plate. It even presents itself in the numbers in your dreams.
You can raise your vibration and make yourself open to receiving angel numbers. But these messages are always present around you.
When you receive the messages, it’s up to you to decode them and decide what to do about them.
