This colour has an enormous number of different associations. Most commonly it depicts being aware with a clearness of mind. But as with wedding gowns, it indicates purity, virginity, cleanness or light feelings. A brilliant white light usually shows a real and experienced inner realisation or enlightenment. It suggests something from your core self shining through to your waking self.

In certain dreams white is very threatening. Perhaps we have connections with hospitals in these dreams, and depict the anxieties and fear we have about illness or death. Maggots, mould, dead or sick people and shrouds can also be white, so white can depict the same sort of feelings. In some Eastern cultures white is associated with mourning and death.

Example: ‘There was a huge white kitchen. I was scared when I entered it and there was a door leading out of it into a white corridor with a turquoise carpet which scared me even more.’ H. H.

White can also be used to denote attraction, something noticeable or plain to see.

Example: I was looking at my right forearm which was bare. It was very brown from the sun, and at the top of the forearm near the elbow was a white slash. This surprised me and I ran my finger across it, and it felt something like a scar because the skin was slightly raised. The main thing about the slash was its intense white. It was so white it is difficult to know whether it was shining like light, or was simply incredibly white. Miche

In this dream Miche felt the whiteness was a very noticeable part of him, representing hurts (the scar) that had been transformed by hard work and skills (the right arm) and were now apparent to other people.

Black and white: The opposites appearing together. In ourselves the good and bad coexist, and one balances the other. So this would suggest such coexistence and balancing.

Shining white: The emergence of powerful life energy in a pure form. This is often connected with new insights amounting to enlightenment – i.e. the realisation of a much wider understanding.

White animals: Urges and sexuality that have been accepted or integrated with conscious activities. This means urges that at one time you were in conflict with or anxious about, and have been transformed in urges and feelings that are acceptable parts of your present life. They become available and creative energy.

White clothes: A sense of wholeness; purity or marriage. Attitudes that express or allow a lot of your core energy.

White face: Often a sign of feelings to do with sickness or sick attitudes. Sometimes it indicates fear.

White flowers: Love that has grown beyond the physical needs and dependencies.

White hair: Sometimes this is about feelings or fears regarding ageing, but it often indicates you accessing greater insight or wisdom about life and yourself.

White horse: As with any white animals, it shows sexuality and basic instinctive urges or energy that have become transformed into greater and acceptable release, It is the difference between holding back on your feelings and creativity because of doubts or conflicts, and then finding a great flow and ease with self expression.

White powder: Often suggests thoughts or feelings about drugs and your relationship with them, or poison. The dream might be indicating that you are doing something, or have taken in something that is detrimental.

White rabbit: Because of the almost universal connection of this with either a pet or with the rabbit Alice followed into the rabbit hole, it depicts feelings about vulnerability or dependence, as with a pet. If it is linked with a pet, it can also connect with feelings of caring and warmth – even love – felt for the pet. Being white suggests good clear feelings and inspiration. The Alice type of white rabbit links with an entrance into your inner world – a descent into your feelings and the world lying under the surface of your everyday life.

Useful questions:

What are the feelings in the dream connected with the white, and what do I gain from them in my waking life?

Is there any fear in this dream, if so can I define what the basis of the fear is?

Am I finding something new here, a new release of innate creativity or realisation perhaps?

I’m trying to pick apart this dream.
I was in a hotel room with a group of females. A group of males were staying in the next room. We were all socializing and lounging around. I felt aware that sex was involved, but I didn’t witness or participate in it.
After hanging out all night, I was heading back to our room. I heard one of the girls crying, “I want to stop. I want to stop” repetedly. I went back into the room. The sound was coming from the bathroom. No one in the room payed it any mind.
I barged in to help. I saw a white-haired baby, on her back, with her diaper open, lying on the toilet lid. A man was standing over her with a blank gaze. At first I thought he was just changing her diaper and started to apologize. Then, I realized the man was raping her. He didn’t stop, or even look up. I hit, choked and kicked the man. This dream was quite disturbing.

Yhumeizun – It sounds a very lovely dream. The baby tigers represent the realisation of your inner strength that has only just become known and is still not fully developed. The whiteness is a sign that you have access to gifts of the spirit if try to use them. So try using your intuition – see http://dreamhawk.com/inner-life/using-your-intuition-1

I had a dream that there were 3 white beautiful birds,eating 3 boiled eggs on the ground.Also last night I dreamed about eggs again they were done over easy.P.S Thank you for your website.God bless you always

    Life – Some dreams I find hard to understand, but here is what my intuition hinted it might mean.

    The beautiful white birds are the wonder of the results of your prayers, forming a link with the Highest. The hard boiled eggs suggest that they could not bring forth new life, but it is okay because the bird were taking in the lessons you have learned in life and using them fir strength to take you on the next step. The last dream was probably the same meaning – the eggs are once again not producing life, but are there for nourishment. I suggest eating some eggs cooked like that, either in imagination or in reality.

I dreamt that I’m going to a museum sort of place with my friend and when we reach there, its a beautiful place full of blooming flowers and greenery. As we enter the inside, we are just hanging up appreciating various things up on display. Suddenly we reach to a corner and there a lot of religious texts and books are kept and photos of Guru Nanak (he was a saint). There a man is standing with a sort of equipment with a huge light and just above it a massive reflector sort of in which we are supposed to concentrate. I ask the man about it, he said this is used to emit white light in people who are unable to read various religious texts or just pray or meditate. Without me asking he asks me to stand in front of it nd he tells me this light goes on only for about 6 seconds to concentrate on yourself, use this reflector as a mirror and see your whole body in there and concentrate on your third eye. I do as he says and i look into the reflector i see the shadow of my body and i concentrate suddenly there is a massive white light thrown upon my face, i see it very clearly and then go deeper and deeper and it turns golden for a brief second and turns white again and as each second is passing by, my whole body is filling up with a joy that one feels when he is happy from the bottom of his heart. The insides of my body are expanding with that joy. And then as the 6th sec gets over i’m back in the dream. But those six seconds did not look like seconds while i was in, it felt like as if the time has slowed. And ultimately i woke up in real life immediately. Any explanation would be helpful, considering I’m going through a very rough patch in my life. Thank you so much for this forum. God bless you! :)

I don’t understand this dream at all. I was in a checkout line at the grocery store. As the cashier was bagging my groceries, an old man stepped in front of me. I can’t remember what he said, but I know it offended me. He had on bright white pants & shirt. His face & hair were also the same color. We began to argue. I looked to my left and there was a butcher knife on the conveyor belt. I grabbed it, stabbed him, then ran out of the store. Please help me understand this.

I had this dream/vision (not sure exactly couple of times). Just before I was slipping into sleep, I saw this white bright shining light like a vehicle’s headlight (much bigger) and I wanted to continue seeing it but somehow became aware of the light and woke up. It has happened more than couple of times now

    Laks – The white light represents your bigger self. But perhaps you can understand if I say that dreams arise from a part of you that is much bigger than your conscious personality. Call it Life that keeps your heart beating and your breathing going even when you sleep. Most people believe it is all automatic and without meaning, but your dream showed you pulling something that is more of you out of that ‘automatic’ and unconscious part of you. So it might help if you read – http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/what-we-need-to-remember-about-us-3/#Reaction

    Also the dream is about waking up – a real indication that you are on the verge of waking up to realising you are much bigger than you presently know. So it might be a door opener if you imagine the light and watch if your body and emotions respond. Or use http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson
