Dream of Numbers
In the symbolic system, numbers are not purely quantitative terms, but “key ideas” with a specific characterization for each one. However, these representations are unknown to most people, so in oneiric terms, the numbers tend to symbolize simply calculation, accuracy, and order. Our dreams, in this sense, remind us that we live in a rather chaotic state. It is a call to find internal order. On the other hand, depending on the number shown, the dream manifests different stages of your spiritual growth and the various archetypal energies of the collective unconscious. Zero is the unmanifested void and the indescribable vastness of space, without time limits. Its symbol is the circle, the perfect whole. One initiates the action. It is the source of life or the unity of creation. It is associated with the figure of the point. Two is diversity. It is the number of duality and divine symmetry. Thanks to him, opposites meet, such as male and female, father and mother, yin and yang, or heaven and earth. In Ancient Greece, three was the perfect number. It is the combination of body, mind, and spirit. Its shape is the triangle, which represents creative force. It can also refer to the Holy Trinity. The symbol of the number four is the square. This is the number of stability and harmony. Furthermore, it connects the seasons, the four elements and the four mental functions that Jung described (thought, feeling, sense, and intuition). Five represents the link between heaven and earth. Its symbol is the pentagon. Six symbolizes inner harmony and perfection. Its figure is the hexagon or the Star of David. Seven is the number that completes things. In the myth of creation, the world is formed in six days and on the seventh is completed. According to an old belief, the soul is renewed every seven years. Hence breaking a mirror brings seven years of bad luck, as the mirror represents the soul. Eight, for the Chinese, is a lucky number that brings good fortune. It represents rebirth and new beginnings. In India, nine is the number of God, of life, and of death. In the West, it represents eternity. Finally, ten is considered the number of law, due to the Ten Commandments. Sacred books, such as the Bible, contain many numerological references. Numerology is the study of the mystical meaning of numbers. Originally, it was based on the Hebrew and Greek alphabets: each number was assigned a letter. By adding numerical equivalents of the letters of names, or the numbers of birth dates, they obtained a lot of information. Through this practice, you can find the personality, qualities, and the fate of each. Sometimes Numerology has been applied for the interpretation of dreams. There are certain human traits associated with each number. One is the initiation; two, attractiveness; three, communication; four, the love of home; five, experience; six, calm; seven, philosophy; eight, business; and nine, freedom.
