Source – this number appeared red in my dream. There is a possibility that the form of the three was less rounded, especially at the top, like this one. However, I am not so sure as I am with the number 7 (below).

Number 3 represents the union of mind, body and soul, the holy Trinity and resonates with the Ascended Masters. Number 3 symbolizes the principles of growth, expansion and manifesting abundance. It may be a message that your ideals and visions are coming to fruition in your life, represents creation or making something happen. Alternatively, the number 3 may reflect a creative process or chaos. It may be suggesting that your prayers have been heard and are being responded to and answered. It suggests vitality, motivation, enthusiasm, creativity and experience. Take notice of your true goals and aspirations, and know that they are attainable. Analyze issues to do with commitment, to improving yourself and meditation.

Depending upon the context of the dream, when number 3 appears it may be a sign of problems with communicating and scattered energies. This number always has to do with commitment and as such it should be placed in the I Need column. The number 3 will often appear in dreams about the heart as people who have closed off their heart to others often lack commitment. A triangle or pyramid also indicate commitment and request the dreamer to meditate on the subject matter of the dream.

When two are gathered, eventually their energy will create a new element, and a third is born. Three is the number of creativity. A powerful energy, there are many examples of the concept of three: mother, father and child is perhaps the most universal. The artist, the paint and the finished work is just one case that can be applied to any creative endeavor. In music, a trine is the simplest and perhaps most pleasing harmony. In the world of geometry, it is only when you have three points to work with that you can create an actual shape and accurately define a location in space. The challenge of three is a lack of grounding and separation from reality. This is because three relates so strongly to the drive to create, that feeling unable to do so would be the fear-based side of this energy.

Three is an extremely creative number, and sacred too. When the number three shows up in our dreams it is an indication to create something new. Pull out your pens, paintbrushes, musical instruments, building blocks – whatever gets your creative juices flowing and spurs you to produce something new and magical in your life. Anything you do creatively will come together elegantly because the number three blesses your productivity.

Many world religions contain triple deities or concepts of trinity, including: the Christian Holy Trinity, the Hindu Trimurti and the Tridevi, the Three Jewels of Buddhism, the Three Pure Ones of Taoism and the Triple Goddess of Wicca, which states that whatever energy a person puts out into the world, be it positive or negative, will be returned to that person three times.

Three is considered a good number in Chinese culture because it sounds like the word “alive”. The phrase “Third time’s the charm” refers to the superstition that after two failures in any endeavor, a third attempt is more likely to succeed. This is also sometimes seen in reverse, as in “third man [to do something, presumably forbidden] gets caught”. Luck, especially bad luck, is often said to “come in threes”.




Source – with my own added line in the middle, because that’s the way the seven was drawn in my dream. Perhaps I saw both numbers squared like this because it’s the way I usually write my numbers. I also think there was a little pointy thing at the top, like this one, but I couldn’t find a 7 that matched all those details.

The mystical number 7 appearing in dreams speaks of our inner-selves and inner-wisdom, birth and re-birth, sacred vows, solitude and spiritual awakening and enlightenment. It suggests healing, spiritual knowledge and intuition. It may be indicating a spiritual growth spurt and attuning to the spiritual realms. It tells of a beneficial time to come, with obstacles being overcome and successes realized.

7 appearing in dreams can be an indication that you are on your right Divine path. Keep up the great work you’ve been doing and positive things will continue to flow into your life that will help and assist you along your journey. Listen to your intuition for guidance and solutions. It is an extremely positive sign and suggests self-satisfaction, inner-joy and blessings.

Depending upon the theme or story, it may tell of feelings of being misunderstood by others, isolation and separateness, and/or difficulties maintaining relationships. The number 7 in a dream represents purity, purification, and wisdom gained after facing negativity. Negative situations are being dealt with or removed. It may also reflect negative beliefs or habits that are being stopped or cleansed in some way.

After all the work in the external world which brought us to the concept of partnership, we are now prepared for a more elevated experience of human expression. Seven is the number of spirituality and higher thought, which is only possible after the basic human needs are met. We are now free to look up and contemplate our existence in a more esoteric manner. Meditation and any consideration of the interior landscape of our humanity is governed by the number seven. This includes thought, contemplation, mysticism, prayer, faith, psychology and any endeavor that seeks to understand life from a higher perspective. This is a number we are all familiar with as significant: Seven days of the week, Seven deadly sins, Seven notes in the diatonic scale, Seven colors in the rainbow, Seven Seas, Seven Continents, Seven Heavens, Seven Emperors, Seven hills of Constantinople, Seven hills of Rome, Seven Liberal Arts, Seven Wonders of the ancient world. 7 was considered a God number in ancient Egypt. The Pharaoh usually ordered things in groups of multiples of 7.

The challenge associated with this vibration is to get lost in the ethers and lose contact with life on the ground. Seven in dreams is a call for higher education. It is a magical, mystical number and acting upon its presence will insure success in higher studies. Dreaming of seven is a sign to continue study, start a new hobby, look into alternative healing, investigate esoteric practices, and get more involved with spiritual teachings.

“The Magical Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two: Some Limits on Our Capacity for Processing Information” is one of the most highly cited papers in psychology. It was published in 1956 by the cognitive psychologist George A. Miller of Princeton University’s Department of Psychology in Psychological Review. It is often interpreted to argue that the number of objects an average human can hold in working memory is 7 ± 2. This is frequently referred to as Miller’s Law.

There are seven processes of transformation in alchemy.
