Number meanings in dreams primarily points to a need for organization and logic. Dreaming of numbers indicates our deeper mind is conveying a message that we may need to reign in our imaginations and begin to forge concrete/organized results.

Numbers are symbolic of formulas, equations, strategies and linear thought. It's true our dreams and imaginings are integral to the manifestation process. So, when I say dreaming of numbers means we must reign in our imaginations - I mean it is time to act and formulate a solid plan that incorporates our dreams and strategies.

What kind of plan do we create that will marry our dreams and action for material manifestation? Our dream numbers will tell us what kind of plan. We derive number meanings in dreams the same way we work with numerology in our waking lives. Every number holds a deeper meaning, a harmonic resonates that carries a message. It's our responsibility to interpret our dream numbers to glean insight for life-direction, planning and purpose.
