Dream Symbols - ColorsWe all dream in color, unless you're having some sort of retro Casablanca dream. But if your dream is mostly featuring a single color, what does it mean?
First, remember that while culture "teaches us" that colors have meanings, your own life may have strong lessons of its own. For example, culture teaches us that white is the color of the bride, the color of joy, purity, a fresh life and clean slate. But if in your life a cruel neighbor always wore white, white to you might symbolize cruelty and pain.
So look at these color meanings as a guideline, but also sit back and close your eyes, and just think about what a color means to YOU. That is always the most important connection for a dream symbol.
Red is a color of power. It is most associated with passion and love, as in red roses or sexy red dresses. Kissable red lips and a glass of red wine for toasting, red strawberries and raspberries on a plate. Negative - blood, corruption
Orange is an unusual color, a color of fire, of tropical fruits and island sunsets. This color represents adventure, change, unusual situations. Negative - an unwanted change.
Yellow is a bright, happy color, the color of sunshine, of daffodils and buttercups. It represents joy, fun, laughing out loud. Negative - illness, as in jaundice and yellow skin.
Green is the traditional color of growing things, of fertility, of fresh young plants and fresh grass. It also represents wealth and money. Negative - greed, green with envy.
Blue is the color of great expanses - the deep blue sea, the wide blue sky. It represents peace and harmony, of patience. Negative - Sadness, the blues.
Purple is a spiritual color, representing spirituality, religion, self belief, self empowerment. Negative - Sadness.
Brown is a rich, earthy color, the color of fertile soil to grow vegetables in. The color of chocolate and tall trees and acorns. It is a color of solid dependability. Negative - Dullness.
Black is a color that has many meanings. To some it means death and destruction, the lack of all. To others it means the comfort of night, the warmth of a snuggly black blanket that keeps you safe. Black is definitely a color that you need to look within yourself to find how you react to this color.
White is equally a color that has unique meanings to each person. While many may feel it represents the fresh, innocent bride, the brand new baby, the dawn of a new day, white can also be the impersonal hospital, the cruel, harsh teacher, the white expanse of a harsh desert.
Pink is the traditional color of baby girls - and has come to mean creatures that are helpless and cute. Some women have turned the color around and use hot pink as a power color - that they are strong females and have a powerful feminine force within them that cannot be stopped!
