If you had the choice between being with a beautiful Czech woman, or traveling to Burma where you would meet another beautiful woman... would you roll a dice to decide? That's the scenario my subconscious presented to me in a dream last night.
After I escaped the Russian mafia, a beautiful woman asked me to go to Czechoslovakia with her. Whether it was her decision, my own, or the cosmos said this is how it was going to be, I had to roll a dice and score a six to go with her... anything else, and I was saying goodbye and packing my suitcase for Burma.
I rolled a four.
I was disappointed. I felt a connection to the Czech woman, and didn't want to leave her, and she really wanted me to go with her to Prague. So I rolled the dice again (lucid dreaming!). Once more, a four. Reluctantly, I said my goodbyes to Ms Czech and left for Burma.
The destination is a little fuzzy, in my dream I said Burma but it felt like it may have been Bhutan or someplace else. Regardless of the location, I met a woman who seemed to already know me. She was surprised to see me, wondering what I was doing there. There was some sort of revolution or war happening, a state of chaos, and people were fleeing. So I helped her and her mother escape.
That's about as much as I can remember from this dream. The two women aren't anyone from my life (that I know of), and I'm not a gambler. So today, I opened the drawer where I keep my old Dungeons & Dragons dice and decided to see how they'd roll. I have two traditional six-sided dice, and guess which sides were already facing up when I opened the drawer?
Four and six. Cue the Twilight Zone music!
The possible symbolism for these two numbers is very interesting. Avia Venefica's What's Your Sign? and Aisling's Dream Interpretation have good summaries of what four and six may represent in the dreaming mind. I emphasise may, because I don't hold much value in dream dictionaries; I'm merely using these suggestions as a guide.
Four: The symbolic meaning of number Four deals with stability and invokes the grounded nature of all things. Consider the four seasons, four directions, four elements all these amazingly powerful essences wrapped up in the nice square package of Four. Fours represent solidity, calmness, and home. A recurrence of Four in your life may signify the need to get back to your roots, center yourself, or even "plant" yourself. Fours also indicate a need for persistence and endurance.
Six: The symbolism behind number Six is legend. With Venus as its ruler, Six represents harmony, balance, sincerity, love, and truth. Six naturally reveals solutions for us in a calm, unfolding manner. We invoke the Six when we need delicate diplomacy when dealing with sensitive matters. The spiritual meaning of number Six also deals with enlightenment; specifically "lighting" our path in areas we require spiritual and mental balance. Sixes beckon us to administer compassion and consciously choose forgiveness in a situation.
[Four] indicates limitation. For example, catching the number 4 bus would indicate the dreamer is limiting their life journey through their actions / thoughts. A box or square also indicate limitation.
[A] female number, 6 indicates Dharma, Christ Consciousness, Grace, love, forgiveness, compassion. It indicates a request to go beyond the five senses and Karma and develop compassion etc. within yourself.
What it all means, if anything, I'll have to mull on for a while longer. Six is a number for enlightenment, the sixth sense, and it's what I was seeking with the Czech woman -- but the dice kept grounding me with a four. Alas, I'm too poor to go to Burma or Bhutan!
What aspects of my psyche do the two choices in my dream represent? I've never dreamt about rolling dice before, that was a new experience for me as well. I wasn't completely lucid in my dream, but rerolling the dice took an effort of will.
