I am forever preaching on the air and in my books that numbers in dreams point to something very specific in your life, so when a number stands out to you in a dream you would do very well to pay attention to it and try to connect it to something in your waking life. I had a dream the other night that is a perfect example.
In my dream, I was with my husband and son at an outdoor market. I came across a box of party lights. It cost 48 cents. What a bargain! I bought it, we took it home and when I opened the box, every single light bulb was broken. Just then, a deer jumped into the porch an into a pool we apparently had in the porch. Then it jumped out. As it was running off I screamed at it, “No! Come back! Don’t Go!!” Oh well. I resumed decorating the porch with the broken lights anyway.
When I woke up, the first thing I focused on was the broken lights. Usually broken glass in a dream reflects broken hopes. Well, I certainly had my hopes broken… a couple weeks before I had miscarried at 9 weeks. Okay, I figured that part out. Now what about the number 48? That was a tough one, I had to think about it… Hmmm… I wonder… I lost the baby on January 4th, according to the doctor I conceived on Nov 17th… wow. That’s 48 days. Amazing how I consciously had not bothered to figure out how many days I was pregnant but yet my inner mind knew. The inner mind is very intune with the body. It never ceases to amaze me!
Deer in dreams are often about something or someone you hold dear to you. Obviously the baby was dear to me… it was unexpected, but still very dear. And It came into my life and left it just as suddenly as the deer jumped into and out of my dream. And this is why I yelled after the deer to “come back, don’t go.” I didn’t want that baby to go away. After my miscarriage, all I could think about was how much I wanted it back. sigh.
But it’s okay. These things happen and we will move on and try again. And that is why my dream showed me continuing to hang up the broken lights anyway. My wise and caring dreaming mind was telling me, yes, your hopes have been broken, but that doesn’t mean they don’t work… so keep your hopes up.
Remember, all your dreams mean something. And what’s more, like every great story ever written, they also have a moral, a message, advice designed specifically for you.
