Read the following. Posted Dreams follows.

Dreams are a succession of images, actions and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind primarily during the REM stage of sleep. Dreams are unbiased, spontaneous products of the unconscious, outside the control of conscious will. The act of dreaming is physical but the contents of dreams is psychological. They are NATURAL expressions of the dreamer's emotional/personal life illustrating experiences that possess strong emotional energies. Although there are literal applications in dreams the primarily language is symbolic, metaphorical of the dreamer's emotional energies.
  • 1. Dreams are about the emotions, emotional energies of the person who is dreaming. They offer advice and a deeper understanding of our waking life as well as the foundations for the emotional energies of the dreamer.

  • 2. The language of dreams is symbolic, but also with literal applications {literal waking experinces}. The symbolic images and actions are metaphors for the patterns or motifs for the dreamer's emotional/psychological/physical life. Every character in a dream is a different aspect of an unacknowledged aspect of the dreamer and/or a prevalent situation in the person's life involving actual persons/experiences {dreams will address both aspects}.

  • 3. The purpose and function of dreams is to guide the conscious self to achieve wholeness and offer a solution to the problems in waking life. Solutions to problems and conflicts from everyday life, as well as the deeper underlying issues, 'emotional injuries' that stem from the foundations of the dreamer {early life experiences and trama experiences in life}.
    ---Dreams reveal vital information that expose the authentic emotions and feelings that are often concealed from the conscious mind.
    ---Dreams compensate for conscious attitudes and personality traits that are out of balance.

  • 4. Dreams are intentional. Nature provides us with dreams to understand and help heal emotional conflicts/issues. Just as the body has the immune system to heal and protect, the psych{ology} has the dream.

  • 5. Dreams possess 'Archteypal' representations. Archetypes are universal, original patterns and images that derive from the collective unconscious and are the psychic counterpart of instinct. An archetype is an inherited tendency of the human mind to form representations of mythological motifs-representations of the symbolic images/actions without losing their basic emotional pattern. Dreams and mythology share the same archetypal images, myths as illustrations of the universal patterns and dreams as illustrations of personal patterns.

  • 6. All dreams have at least two meanings or applications. One is the symbolic representation metaphorical of the emotional energies and the second being a literal application where a person, place or experience is addressing a real life experience.

    Woke up with #6 on my arm

    So I woke up in the middle of the night about 2 years ago with the number 6 on my bicep with a circle around it. The weird thing is that I wasn't laying on anything and it wasn't indented into my skin but the skin was actually raised. It seemed so clear and odd at the time that I took a picture when I went to the bathroom and saw it. I do remember a burning sensation and I know I had a nightmare just moments before waking up and seeing this. Also if it's any kind of additional help I have the numbers 666 in the last 4 of my social security number. (Not lying) some people keep telling me I've been marked by the devil but I don't exactly believe in the Christian way of viewing such things so I was just wondering if anyone maybe had any other ideas or thoughts.

    Re: Woke up with #6 on my arm

    Since this was not a dream then I can't really say what it was that caused this circled number to appear. Like you I also have the numbers 666 in my ss number interposed by one other number. And like you I do not subscribe to biblical interpretation of the number 666 unless the person is very devote to their religion {and then only as a contributing factor and not the prime meaning}. The best I can do is provide analysis the what you saw after awakening from a dream/nightmare, perhaps that having something to do with the number's appearance. I will amplify the images and actions as if it were a dream to see what message might be.

    Dream Title: Woke up with #6 on my arm
    -woke up-awaken to an unknown qaulity/aspect about self
    -#6-equilibrium/balance/harmony in physical life
    -on my arm-an extension of yourself associated with nurturing

    -number #6 on bicep with circle around it-conflict in developing equilibrium/ balance/harmony/wholeness/not fully developed
    -not indented but skin was raised-security/protection not elevated in physical life

    As for the number 6, the symbolic representation is
    From my dream dictionary at Myths-Dreams-Symbols
    (1) May be number for completeness. Six is a multiple of three (same as three).
    (2) May symbolize conflict.
    From my Power of Dreams Dictionary
    -cooperation, balance, tranquility, perfection, warmth, union, marriage, family, and love. Your mental, emotional, and spiritual states are in harmony. It is also indicative of domestic bliss.

    As for the circle it can represent symbolizes perfection, completeness, immortality and/or wholeness. In Jungian psyche it represents wholeness, completion. Reaching the part of yourself that has integrated all aspects of your being; physical, psychological, spiritual.

    Does the above amplification fit somewhere in your life? Was 'nurturing' an issue in childhood {parental}? Is there an aspect of/in your life where completion or wholeness is an issue or goal? That is how I would look at the images and what they might mean if they were in a dream.

    Another note on the number 666. Manly P. Hall states it this way as it has to do with biblical applications {one I can agree with}.
    "All higher numbers can be reduced to one of the original ten numerals, and the 10 itself to 1. Therefore, all groups of numbers resulting from the translation of names of deities into their numerical equivalents have a basis in one of the first ten numbers. By this system, in which the digits are added together, 666 becomes 6+6+6 or 18, and this, in turn, becomes 1+8 or 9. According to Revelation, 144,000 are to be saved. This number becomes 1+4+4+0+0+0, which equals 9, thus proving that both the Beast of Babylon and the number of the saved refer to man himself, whose symbol is the number 9. This system can be used successfully with both Greek and Hebrew letter values."

    The number 6 is a reversed number 9. Number 9 is the number for the universe {actually it is 432,000 with the numbers added together equaling 9}. 666=18. My position is the number 6 represents wholeness of the physical self/life and 9 the spiritual {which would include the physical}
