Perhaps a healing process of cleansing old hurts or feelings; an attempt to ‘clean up’ ones emotions or attitudes, especially if applied to clothes. It could also suggest a painful experience. If it is being used to bleach something it might be referring to a change going on – the shift from a colour to white. If it is to remove a stain, then it is linking with something you feel is a bad memory or that you feel unhappy or guilty about, and your attempt to deal with it.

Platinum blonde: Usually refers to false ‘colours’ we wear, and can sometimes indicate a cheap person.

Useful Questions and Hints:

If I am using the bleach to remove a stain, what part of myself do I feel I want to change?

Is there a change going on in my life in how I feel?

Is this about cleaning old attitudes or feelings, meeting and transforming old memories?

Is there a Because Factor in your dream – or does this sort of dream Recur

In my dream many things happened, however the one part that really concerns me is when i walk up to what looks like a river. I become unconscious and look up to my boyfriend asking me if im okay. They all tell me i need a mask such as there because of the bleach and chemicals in the water. I smelt the bleach, as if i was really there. Next thing we get on a tiny little boat and go forward i look back and everyone appears to halfway under water. I take off my mask and i dont smell the bleach anymore. Then i woke up. I usually have very vivid dreams multiple dreams a night. Just this one took the cake. What does this mean??

    Hi – It would help you to understand your dreams, if you would read – and also which has so much information in.

    Nothing can replace your own ability to understand your dream. With a little effort you can do this by practising what is described in – or


    Breanne – The river in dreams is a powerful force of change. If you think about it, each of us are immersed in a ‘river’ of constant change. If you think about it you have been carried, pushed, impelled by this current as you were moved through babyhood, childhood, teenage and adulthood. And as we passed through these changes we died to our old self in order to change to the new. It is the current of Life. This current then carries us on through old age and through the gates of death. All the time we are faced by decisions, and each decision directs us on a different path, helping to create our future. And this is a force of growth and change; and is fought like hell by many as we are afraid of such changes,

    So the bleach and the river obviously was too much for you and caused you to pass out – usually a sign of avoiding seeing what is involved in the difficulties in your life.

    Having been unconscious of the changes the river and bleach faced you with, you can then almost completely immerse yourself, but still not taking the plunge. I suggest you get into that river in your imagination, realising that whenever we dream its images are not like real life, because a dream is nothing like outer life where things could hurt you, but is an image like on a cinema screen that even if a gun is pointed at you and fired it can do no damage – except if you run in fear. So all the things that scare you are simply your own fears projected onto the screen of your sleeping mind. Try using

I had a dream about my special needs brother accidentally drinking too much bleach and dying. He’s my favorite person in the world so I was a little unsettled by this dream.. Not sure what kind of message it’s sending me.

Dreaming I was riding a brown horse bare back after a bit it was unable to hold me and turned in to a human man saying it couldn’t go on then I realised I needed a bigger and stronger horses to ride and felt that I could and would be able to control and ride although deep down I was scared and just learning to ride… In the beginning of my dream I was in field with trees where the horses were grazing all brown some were saddled and I had to choose one but they all started making there wayhome past me which scared me but I stood firm then ended up riding the bay bare back.
