Lucid Dream with Numbers


I'm new to this forum and would like some help with interpreting a dream I had recently:

I was in a car with a lady who was driving me to a venue where I was scheduled to either speak to a group of people about my career as an artist/designer or teach them how to draw or paint (like a Paint & Sip, I guess). There were no close parking spaces, so we had to park several blocks away, along a street. Right outside the entrance was a sidewalk chalkboard sign that had my name written on it as a guest speaker from 2pm to 4pm. It had a sponsor name but there was a mistake, so the lady I was with erased the sponsor name and wrote in something else. (I can't recall what she wrote.) After entering the venue, I immediately noticed the atmosphere was pleasant and welcoming. The venue looked high-end and had a seating area near the entrance with several chairs and couches. Further back was a more open space that looked like a gallery but had a bar and a few high tables and chairs placed throughout. The upper level had another bar with one or two white couches. There were a lot of people in attendance – socializing, drinking and having a good time, but it wasn’t overcrowded. I saw a few friends and acquaintances there while walking through the place. I felt very comfortable.

All of a sudden, the lady who was with me noticed that something was missing that was needed for my presentation. Then I realized I was not prepared for this event at all! I didn’t have my cellphone, iPad, portfolio or art supplies with me. I wasn’t even sure what I was supposed to present or demonstrate! I was at peace a minute ago but was starting to panic and trying not to show it to those around me. I wondered how much time I had to prepare and I saw the time was 1:51 on a digital clock or someone’s cellphone. Then, a man came up to me and said all I have to talk about is a time when someone disrespected me or my work and a time when I felt redeemed or overcame a hardship (or something like that).

I felt a little relieved at first but couldn’t think of a moment that was impactful enough to talk about for 2 hours. I started thinking about how I’d rather anywhere else besides being right there and fail at speaking to a group of people. Then I remembered that I was dreaming and didn’t have to go through with it after all. I felt so relieved and decided that I was just going to wake up from the dream and that’s what I did.

So, my questions are: Is this actually a lucid dream? (I don’t know much about lucid dreaming.) What could those numbers mean? Is there anything else that can be interpreted from this dream? Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated. Feel free to ask questions if you want to know more about my background or other details about the dream (if I remember them). Thank you!

Re: Lucid Dream with Numbers

It will be Sunday before I will be able to fully analyze your dream. A quick glance {cursory} I see these possibilities.

As is the case with all dreams there is evidence of conflicting emotions. It may have to do with some required event in your life where something occured that left you feeling unprepared with failure being what frightened you {in actual waking life}. Afterwards you realize it wasn't as dire as you thought because you are in control of important aspects of your life that matter most {related to creativity being a good possibility}.

As for the lucid dreaming. Unless you were aware or suspected early in the dream you were lucid dreaming this does not seem to be a lucid dream, a normal one at least. With lucid dreaming you are able to control aspects of the dream. The last part of the dream where you remembered you were dreaming may be more about the control of your life I mentioned. The desire to be anywhere else besides being right there may be addressing not only a desire to be where you want to be most {creative?} as well as a desire to be elsewhere related t an actual event in your life. Dreams do that with all dreams having at least two applications/meanings. This page will explain lucid dreaming Lucid dreaming: Controlling the stories of sleep.

What numbers are you speaking about? I have the belief all numbers have meaning but not all important. I see numbers related to time of day and length of time and although they may have relevance they alone aren't suspiciously pointing to clues to the dream. Are there other numbers you didn't include in the dream post?
