Default Had a dream with numbers in it

This morning I woke up from a dream where I was helping a woman - a complete stranger to me in the dream - try to stay alive by replacing long glass tubes on the machine attached to her via long tubes. Each long glass tube had a double digit number on it. The one glass tube - labeled 56 - was missing from her machine and I couldn't find it before she passed away.

I have no idea what the number 56 in my dream means or who the woman in the dream was, who I was trying to save but couldn't.

Any ideas?

Perhaps you're afraid of aging, StreetcarBlanche? I don't know what you age is, so I don't know for sure. Perhaps the woman in your dream was yourself. I agree it's hard to interpret. How does the numer 56 realtes to your life? Does anything come to your mind? I'm so sorry, I wish I've had more advice to give to you. Sending many hugs to you

I just linked this in another post 10 Types of Death Dreams and What They Mean – Learning Mind and found it interesting, just like your dream. Yours sounds quite surreal and creative, and as dreams are reflections of our subconscious, I believe you may be quite creative in your waking hours as well.
Lots of hugs as well!

Sorry I didn't respond to your post earlier. I wanted to reflect on what you wrote before I responded. I'm middle-age so my life is half-over. I am definitely sad that I never got to get married or have children. I never met the right guy in my 20s or 30s, so that opportunity has passed. But...I don't think the number 56 symbolizes the age 56 for me.

I don't think the age 56 relates to my real life. I always gave myself the deadline of 48 years old to have: a career, savings, husband, children, house, pets, hobbies, the whole shabang. But that never happened.

Hi ElStevo, wow that link that you provided is perfect timing for me; I relate to #7 and #8 in my real life for sure.

7. Dreaming of someone who is already dead
Dreaming about dead people could be a warning that you are being influenced by the wrong people in your life. It could also mean that a situation in your life should be resolved and it is time for you to move on.

8. Death of a stranger
If you don’t know the person that has died in your dream, then this is an indication that there are changes going on around you but you feel completely detached from them.


#7: I know for a fact, I've been influenced (and being influenced on FB) by the wrong people in my life. If I look at my FB friends list, literally about 3 of the entire batch, are people who want whats best for me and the rest fall into superficial categories like "distant relative," "social acquaintance," "ex," and "long-distance friendships."

But there is a local group of FB friends I recently met only two times, who are my FB friends now (I regret it already). I tried to initiate social invites to these people but they pretty much placed me in the 'option' pile of people in their social circle, so I feel like a lone sock with no partner if that makes sense.

I don't have much in common with these people and since I don't have a social circle, I never run into them anyway, as I'm 100% alone every time I go out to a movie, to eat, to a concert, a play, book reading, what have you. I'm always alone, even though I belong to a lot of external social groups. I hate being alone b/c it's not good for me (or anyone for that matter) but this group of people socially shun me (I guess they only needed to meet me out socially twice to determine that I wasn't socially compatible to them enough to become real friends vs. the digital friends we are on FB, which, let's be honest, is a total crock).

So, in that sense, #7 from your link totally makes sense in the context of that dream I had.

#8: This is scary accurate, in context to my dream of trying to save that strange woman's life. I think I am trying to get involved in creative communities in my city, to no avail. No one will get back to me about classes that I want to register for with regard to my creative interests.

Or, the classes are offered at times I'm stuck working. Plus, there are a ton of changes happening around me that I'm not a part of - some intentionally, like family-related stuff; and some social - the social groups I belong to, have get togethers at times I am not able to attend. So, I feel totally isolated despite my efforts to try to engage in these creative communities around me.

Like, I met some creative people (that FB group of friends who now have no interest in ever socializing with me again in real life, but are fine interacting with me online which isn't real anyway), who all just reject and ignore my efforts to socially invite them out. And these people are 'connected' so I really feel like a failure.

Then, the universe stepped in with terrible irony today. I lost my favorite pair of glasses last week and today they showed up out of nowhere, which I took as a sign as "put your damn glasses on and see things for what they are." I'm SUPER creative, but I'm languishing in The Nothing (to borrow from a great book/movie "The Never Ending Story.") and soon feel like any opportunities I was given to create something, will vanish into thin air b/c I can't make those opportunities happen for myself right now.

I think that is definitely what that dream meant. Thanks to you both for helping me suss out that dream's meaning. And yes ElStevo, I'm very creative awake but no resources to tap into to foster that creativity. No matter what I do, I can't connect to those resources.

Years ago, I dreamed of 9's. I was in a tunnel and the only light was from all these nines that were floating towards me up the tunnel. All different colors and sizes. There was no fear, just curiosity. Anyone's guess....

Hi Medusax, I found this link about numerology in dreams. Pretty interesting! Numerology: Numbers in Dreams | Exemplore

I also read online that dreaming of tunnels can represent new beginnings.

According to my favourite online dream interpretation site...

To see numbers in your dream symbolize material gains and possessions. You are keeping close track of things. Alternatively, numbers indicate that you are being over analytical or rational. Or that you need to evaluate a situation more thoroughly. Numbers also carry much personal significance. They may represent a special date, address, age, lucky number or something meaningful and significant to only you.

So that, combined with the dying woman - and death in dreams is sometimes said to represent new beginnings - could mean that, due to your careful efforts things are gradually coming to fruition for you, perhaps.
