There is much discussion in the scientific world as to whether or not we dream in color or in black and white. I have read that some scientists believe that about 80% of our dreams are in color while others say it is biologically impossible to dream in black and white. On a purely psychic level and not so “scientific” meaning of colors comes from clairvoyants. A clairvoyant is someone who can see peoples aura’s (energy surronding us) say that a subjects mood or feeling are a resultant color. i.e. “green with envy or jealousy” “seeing red” or “having the blues” etc.
Colors in dreams as in life also have different meanings with respect to our personal feelings, experiences and likes or dislikes of a particular color. For example in general the colors black , dark grey or browns are said to depress people who wear these colors or are surrounded by them. But for me personally being a fashionista those colors are fabulous and when I wear black I feel powerful, in-style and confident. When I wear brown I notice I am in a more down to earth mood. I have worked in the fashion industry for years and any woman in fashion knows the little black dress (thank you Coco Chanel) is a must for all of us! And far from depressing! But let me not get into fashion here - that is a whole other blog! I simply wanted to point out how colors have personal meaning too. The color meanings listed below are general meanings. As I always point out go with your gut or intuitive reaction to the color when interpreting it in your dream.
Black: dark and mysterious, death, mourning or hate if accompanied with feelings of fear. Can also be uncertainty. If you have positive emotions in your dream with the color black it can hint to unmanifested spiritual gifts or qualities
Blue: Truth, Wisdom, calmness, tranquility, devotion (true blue)
Brown: Practical, down to earth, earthy as in nature
Green: healthy, growth, goodness, peace, healing/healer, learning
Gray: depression, fear, illness and undefined or not clear, i.e. the gray area or it’s not black or white its gray meaning not this or that but something in the middle.
Purple: Royalty, healing abilities, spiritual oneness with God, spiritual powers, success, psychic abilities
Orange: Friendly, out going, social, energy, happy.
Pink: Love, affection, kindness, softness, lack of fear
Red: Pure, raw energy, action, power to love or hate or conquer, controlling, agressive
White: Purity, clean, fresh, perfection, holiness
Yellow: Intelligence, happy, new beginnings
Pastel colors are hues of the primary colors and indicate an immaturity or weakness in the area of the particular color.
May you have wonderful colorful dreams tonight.
