Color in Dream

The subconscious will draw on many different associations to give us direction and guidance in our dreams. One way the subconscious highlights or intensifies a situation or object is by the use of color associations. Color can also be used to express emotions, moods, and perceptions. Bright and cheerful colors may designate a person who has a bright and cheerful outlook on life, while one who consistently dreams in drab, cheerless colors may tend to be depressed and to view the world as a drab place. Black in a dream may pinpoint a "black" outlook on life. Generally, dreams with clear and beautiful colors will have positive, or spiritual, overtones. Muddy, unclear colors will probably have negative associations. It should be noted, too, that lack of color where color is called for (a flower garden, for instance) should be of interest to us. Maybe we need to put more "color" in our lives, or try to be a more "colorful" person.

The following list may be used as a guide in color interpretations:


• evil; ignorance; deception; mystery; negative; secrecy; unenlightenment of self (absence of light); a warning; death; renunciation. "Black mood"; to see something as "black or white"; "black magic"; "into the black" (profit); "black-out"; "black market."


• right and wrong; good and evil.


• spiritual; contemplative; stable; calm; moody; dejected; impatient. The darker the shades, the deeper the meaning of blue. Blue is associated with the fifth spiritual center, the thyroid.

Personality traits: azure blue—religious devotion; lavender blue— devotion to high ideals; blue-gray—a religious feeling motivated by fear; Madonna blue—obedience to Divine Will; deep royal—honest, loyal, and, if it contains a little purple, good judgment in handling material affairs; dark blue—unselfish; spiritually inclined.

The more blue, the more trustworthy. As it tends toward yellow-green, it can indicate deceit.

This center, and therefore the color orange, is the "balancing" center in the body, especially in reference to the secondary sexual characteristics. Since the cells of Leydig are contained in the gonads, orange (the combination of red and yellow) is associated with two of the four lower centers (earth centers), and is therefore expressive of earthiness and nature.
