COLOURS in DREAMS
Colors provide us with valuable insights into our life’s experiences. Knowledge of the significance of the colors in our dreams is a wonderful tool for understanding the messages and meaning our dreams.
Color meanings in dreams can be very telling about what’s going on in the deepest waters that stir within us.
If you’re reading this page, odds are you have a genuine curiosity and interest in dream meanings. You’ve likely already got a good grip on the concept of dreams reflecting deeper meaning in your life experience.
Your dream meanings are unique to you. No one can accurately pin-point the deeper message of a dream but you. Dreams are intensely personal – it only makes sense that you are your best interpreter.
Using color to interpret and understand our dreams has been utilized for thousands of years in cultures with esoteric traditions. In human history, color was believed to be one of the most important symbols in the world. The mystical and profound meanings of each color were an integral part of all ancient civilizations who explored dreams and their meanings. Today, modern scientists and psychologists are recognizing and acknowledging the beneficial uses of color for therapeutic and medicinal purposes. Researchers have discovered that specific colors trigger the same responses in people, regardless of their culture or background.
Even though we may not be consciously aware of it, we acknowledge the energy and power of the colors in our lives, and this is often reflected in our dreams and dream imagery and symbol. Color plays an important role in every area of our lives.
Color has much symbol and imagery and represents our emotional states and conditions which are stimulated in our dreams. Color combines with symbol and imagery to form a meaning or interpretation of the dream image and adds a greater emotional significance. The color that is assigned to the dream imagery adds meaning and depth.
Some dreams may be perceived as colorless due to the dreamer’s sense of recall. Color recall may also be associated with emotional attachments and memories.
Color plays an integral and important role in everyone’s lives and provides us with valuable insight into our experiences through our dreams. Colors appear in our dreams in many ways. Sometimes an image can be vibrant or partial, or entirely in the natural colors of our world, such as sky blue, brown and green tones.
The clearer the color, the more accurate and clear the meaning and message. The muddier the color, the more that particular area (or emotion) is blocked for you.
Some people recall having only black and white dreams or with pale, insipid neutral shades. Research has shown that the majority of our dreams (70% to 83%) are in color.
Vivid colors are usually associated with lucid dreams and dreaming.
Knowledge of the significance of the colors in our dreams is a most effective tool for understanding and interpreting our dreams.
Dreaming of certain colors in your dreams can have great significance when it comes to unlocking what a dream means. Since we are affected by color in waking life (we often associate color with emotions and moods) – it only therefore makes sense that our dreams also use color to help guide us and help us understand ourselves better.
Now, before we go over what all the different colors often mean, it is important to remember that colors in dreams can have many different meanings, and they will vary from person to person. Someone who is fond of the color yellow will think much differently than someone who hates the color yellow. So while these meanings below will give you a good start on interpreting your own dream colors, bear in mind you are the best interpreter of your dreams.
Here are some of the common color symbols and their meanings:
BEIGE – The color beige appearing in dreams represents the basics, the essentials of life, the barest form or ‘bare bones’.
Beige presenting in your dream may indicate a neutral or unbiased view or position on a matter or in a situation.
BLACK – Black is the color of the unconscious, mystery, change and protection. It resonates with indifference, gloom, death, darkness, obscurity and secrecy. Black is often associated with death or major changes. Seeing black in your dream may represent the death of old ideas and/or the endings of a situation or phase in your life.
Seeing the color black in your dreams may also suggest a hidden or rejected aspect of yourself.
Black can symbolize the unconscious, hidden things, the unknown and endings. Black appearing in dreams invites us to delve deeply in the subconscious mind in order to gain a better understanding of the ‘Self’.
Black appearing in your dreams may be representing potentials and possibilities and may be symbolic of a ‘clean slate’ or ‘blank slate’. Within the context of the dream theme, seeing black can suggest Divine qualities and heightening spirituality.
Black is the darkest of all colors and to dream of black can have a number of different meanings. It is often a color associated with loneliness, sadness, emptiness, mourning, and depression. It can often signify the unknown or mysteriousness. Black can also mean hatred, fear, anger, and darkness.
BLACK & WHITE – To dream in black and white can suggest that you need to be more objective in formulating your choices and decisions. It may imply that you are too rigid and/or unyielding in your thought processes and may need to find balance and a place of reference. Consider the opinions and views of others to gain perspective.
Dreaming in black and white may be a sign of sadness, melancholy and/or depression. You may feel as though there is not enough excitement, variety or color in your life. Dreaming in black and white indicates a heavy reliance on structure, uniformity and order. Black and white dreams point to a distinct separation between reality and fantasy. Some of my colleagues encourage integration of right and left-mind behaviors when they learn their clients dream only in black and white. I’m not sure I agree. I’m more inclined to explore the shadows, and values in the black and white and mine the meaning from that landscape rather than learn another method of dream expression.
Black and white dreams can offer crystalline perspectives. They offer fewer distractions so the purity of meaning can be more easily sought. Furthermore, black and white dreams offer a crisp, clean beauty that is incredibly remarkable to the exploring mind. I notice I have black and white dreams when my inner awareness needs me to recognize the facts about the situation. No fluff, no baloney. Black and white dreams give me a “newspaper” understanding of the events playing out in my present life. They are extremely easy for me to interpret. Straight forward, chronological, and orderly.
These are just some thoughts wrought from my own dream-color experiences.
BLUE – The color blue vibrates with the energies of wisdom, truth, heaven, devotion, eternity, tranquility, loyalty, openness, receptivity and loyalty. Seeing blue in your dreams may suggest a feeling, need or desire to get away from a situation. Blue in your dreams may symbolize your Spirit Guide (or a higher spiritual beings) guiding you.

The color meanings of blue in dreams point to thoughts, ideas, dreams and the ability to convey them. I’ve got a lot of artists as clients, and overwhelmingly, these brilliant minds feel, think and dream predominantly in hues of blue. I believe it’s because their prime motivation is to effectively convey their visions to the world. These artists find purpose in expressing their ideas through remarkably profound (and creative) methods. That’s what the color blue asks us to do. Consider the skies overhead. This atmosphere is symbolic of vast, endless opportunities for discovery, renewal and expression. As humans, our attempt to define, project, perceive and share this vastness is innate. We’ve got to take it all in, process, and then tell everybody we know about it (art, music, literature, even social media are all testimonies to our need to share our perceptions creatively). So, when we dream in swirling blue hues, it’s often a sign of our ability to tap into the vast mysteries of life. That’s step one. The other step our blue dreams ask of us it to interpret these mysteries and share them with our environment. Blue dreams remind us that opinions and perceptions can be run on a neuro-network…a path of interchange and exchange. . Blue color meanings in dreams might ask questions like:
- If I suspended judgment, how would I describe my environment?
- What’s my ideal of tranquility?
- How can I more effectively communicate what I’m feeling?
- Am I aware of my own immortality?
- What’s my idea of “flying high” and how can I connect with that feeling more often?
- What ideas can I share that can potentially change the world for the better?
BROWN – Brown resonates with the introverted, concealment (as in identity), sensation and material items. The color brown denotes practicality, domestic bliss, worldliness, conservatism and being ‘down to earth’.
Seeing brown in your dreams may be suggesting that you get ‘back to basics’.
Brown is an earthy color that we often associate with dirt, stone, and wood. To dream of the color brown often means you need to be “grounded” or need to go back to the origin of a problem. Brown can mean friendliness, trustworthiness, and wholesomeness (think whole grain bread). Since brown is a darker shade of orange, it can also mean a dulled sense of hopefulness and adventure. Light brown or beige can mean neutrality or predictability.
BURGUNDY – The color burgundy appearing in dreams can symbolize success, wealth, abundance and prosperity. Dreaming of burgundy can be indicative of your personal power and potential.
FUCHSIA – The color fuchsia represents your connection to your spirituality and emotional stability.

Color meanings of green in dreams often point us in the direction of growth, healing, love, giving, and inspiration. Green corresponds with the heart chakra, which governs passion, love and healing. The Anahata is associated with the element of air, and so we see a different kind of love than what we experience in the primal red hues. Green is symbolic of communicating care on a subtle, energetic level. When we dream of green, we are imbued with a magical ability to transfer knowledge by unorthodox means. Green facilitates growth, love and healing by mental stimulation. Greeks believed intelligence came from the heart. This combined with the green of the heart chakra talks to us about emotional intelligence and communicating with an open heart. I realize I’m being vague here; this kind of ethereal communication isn’t easily identified. However, we can look to Mother Nature for help in explanation. She speaks in viridian tongue – communicating a sea of burgeoning growth – all expressed by the color green. When we dream of green we’re experiencing levels of healing and growth that are subtle. It’s time to concentrate on the areas of our lives that need to flourish. Once we hone in, and begin to express our identification on an emotional (heart) level, our growth will be exponential and immense. . Questions prompted from color meanings of green in dreams:
- If your life were a lawn, what would it look like?
- How could you improve you lawn’s health, appearance, longevity?

INDIGO – Indigo is the color of heightened spirituality and Divine guidance and protection.
Listen carefully and take special notice of dreams containing indigo, purple and violet. Indigo color meanings in dreams are about psychic tuning, contacting the ephemeral, and connecting with spiritual vision. Indigo goes deep, real deep. Therefore, deep minds will dream in indigo as a message that indeed, there is no end to the proverbial rabbit hole experienced by Alice in her Wonderland. Indigo is the wonderland, and once submerged in the oceanic waves of extrasensory perception; there is no limit to the non-linear knowledge that can be obtained. It sounds heavy because it is. Dreaming in indigo marks the consciousness’ ability to dive far deeper than what daily reality holds. If you’re dreaming of indigo, next time make a conscious (lucid) effort to dive even deeper, push the limits – and you will find there is no end to the startling revelations available to your perception. Indigo dreams are initiations into a world where common rules and conventionalism will not apply. Consider the deepest, darkest depths of the Marianas Trench – far deeper than this is the capacity of the psychic mind. Dive in, there are endless treasures to be found in the dreamy realm of indigo. . Indigo color meanings in dreams ask us:
- How far can I move into my deepest presence/awareness/consciousness?

Orange: Orange in dreams is a sign of equalization, balance and temperance. Orange stands stoically between the raging initiations of red, and the themes awareness/realizations of yellow. It is not entirely physical and not completely mental. Orange is the fulcrum and our perception the teeter-totter. When we dream in oranges, we are asked to consider what is in-balance (or need of balance) in our lives. Orange offers messages of harmony and contentment too – often achieved through a specific (sometimes lengthy) cycle of time. Orange also asks us to build up our immunities, freshen up our routines and engage in practices that enhance our daily lives. On a personal note, I think of pumpkins when my clients tell me they’ve dreamed in orange. Pumpkins speak to me of manifestation – from tilling soil, to planting seed, to tending the plant, and then harvesting. In other words, actions over a period of time lead to specific results. . Color meanings of orange in dreams offer questions like:

Shades of deep/dark purple may represent moodiness.
Red: Dreaming of red is about activation, physicality, passion and intensity. In the chakras red is the root, it’s a primitive energy that expresses itself in terms of survival and prime instinct. Consider the deep blood red that runs through our veins. Life-affirming, flowing, and activating our energy on a very base, physical level. Red is the root that runs through our psyche. It speaks to us of dormant power. Consider fire. It requires an igniting action. The capability of fire is all around us, but it takes a spark to release the power. I particularly love the symbolism of volcanoes when contemplating color meanings in dreams. The red hot energy is always there, just under the surface. What provokes its resurfacing is key. If you see red in your dreams:
- What needs activating in your life?
- What physical (body, material) conditions need your attention?

Seeing darker shades of violet in your dreams may suggest a person who feels as though they have many obstacles to overcome and/or feeling misunderstood.
Listen carefully and take special notice of dreams containing violet, indigo and purple.
Color meanings of violet dreams indicate divinity, peace, tranquility and enlightenment. I hesitate to even use that word “enlightenment” because it’s tossed around so haphazardly. We’re talking about a devout presence of knowingness in violet hued dreams. It’s as if higher wisdom is a personality of its own, and it presence is standing within your body – thinking – knowing – watching – independently yet separately. It’s a sensational experience, and violet dreams are a glimpse inside that kind of awareness-phenomenon. Violet is about blossoming and opening up to new, unconventional experiences. It’s chakra is the crown, and is depicted as a thousand-petal lotus unfurling its luscious body to drink in all the sensations available to it. And, the key is everything is available for the lotus sensory organ to devour. Violet dreams mark the union of the soul with body, mind and divine consciousness. With this kind of conjugation comes bliss, satisfaction, and rest. These are fleeting moments…swim in them loosely for as long as you can. The more we swim in violet energies, the more we’ll experience this lucid presence of knowing. So, if you have violet dreams, appreciate every square inch of them, because they are a real gift from the divine source. . Violet color meanings in dreams ask us:
- How can I become more fully aware of the watcher within?
- How can I experience life more fully?
- What is my highest intent for life, and are my actions aligned with that intent?

- Do I have to earn contentment and tranquility?
What is my relationship with this present moment – this now?

Consider the center (solar plexus) chakra which is also yellow and governs our will and even our sense of identity. Some of the first flowers to burst out of a long dormancy are yellow (dandelions, daffodils), this screams to me about awakening – resurfacing – becoming aware (maybe for the first time) of the larger picture of life. Yellow is the color of intelligent design, and when we dream in yellow it reflects a special kind of clarity. Yellow is a bright idea, and an epiphany on a grand scale. When we dream of yellow, our deeper consciousness is paving the way (yellow brick road?) to a path of higher understanding and mystical awareness. Yellow centralizes our energetic focus so that we may intensify our presence. That intensity then radiates outward – just as the light of the sun does. Effectually, dreaming of yellow indicates a time of intelligent reflection in which we are influencing the world around us in amazing ways. .

Understanding the different meanings of colors in dreams can definitely help you with dream interpretation. While the above meanings are common, they certainly are not the only meanings for a certain color in your dream.
Here are some more tips that will help you get an accurate interpretation of what different colors mean in your dream:
If You Remember a Color, It’s Probably Important: If you remember that something is a certain color, it’s probably important. After all, we don’t really go through our day to day lives and identify the color of every object we come into contact with. So if you dream of an object that is a certain color, don’t dismiss it – that color very might well be tied to the greater message of the dream.
Look for Color Combinations: Often times we’ll see color combinations. For example, maybe you dream of a yellow and blue bird. This might mean that you feel at peace and happiness, or it could mean you feel cowardly and depressed. When you tie two colors together, it can help you greater understand the meaning of the dream.
Consider Your Personal Relationship With the Color: If you’re favorite color is hot pink, and you dream about it, that would mean something different to you than if you dream about yellow, you’re least favorite color. Think carefully about your relationship with that color. Do you like it? How does it make you feel? What experiences in life have you had with that color?
Remember the Context of the Dream: The other dream symbols will certainly play a role in what the colors mean to you and help you find the meaning of the dream. If you are dreaming about that blue and yellow bird locked up in a cage trying to escape, that is different than dreaming about a blue and yellow bird singing on a tree branch.
Remember to Write Your Dreams Down: Writing your dreams down as a daily habit will definitely help you be more likely to remember your dreams, as well as make it easier to interpret them. When you write down your dreams, try to include as much detail as possible about the colors of each object in the dream.
Think About Color Names/Different Shades of Colors: There are thousands of colors and even more names for the basic colors, like turquoise, aqua, fuchsia, burgundy, olive, maroon, crimson, ivory…the list goes on and on. If you happen to have a color like that in your dream, consider whether the name has any significance – then think about the shade. For example, turquoise is a shade of blue green. As you can guess, it has qualities of both blue and green. Burgundy is a deep, dull red color – which could signify a dulled passion or love interest for example.
