Spiritual Meaning of Colors in Dreams

Before interpreting your own or another’s dreams, it is important to remember the following:

  • Dreams are a reflection of the dreamer’s inner world. While each individual is greatly influenced by the world around them, dreams reflect the dreamer’s mental, emotional, and physical state. Many dream symbols and contexts reflect the dreamer’s beliefs and cultural influences. In other words, dreams are as unique and as individual as dreamers. So, although only the dreamer truly knows what his/her dream means to them, this article explores what each color might typically symbolize to people.
  • Dream interpretation is most effective when the dreamer takes an active role in exploring and discovering the personal meaning of his/her dream, and the symbol is analyzed within the context of the dream’s content, what emotions were evoked in the dreamer while he/she was experiencing the dream, and the current day-to-day influences of the dreamer. It is important for the dreamer not only to recognize what meanings resonate most but what meanings produce a strong response. If a dreamer is deeply offended or annoyed by an interpretation, this may hint at a possible issue the dreamer is attempting to deny or repress. Incorrect interpretations help the dreamer eliminate the possibilities of what his/her dream means and are still useful.

The Meaning of Color in a Dream

This article contains a list of possible meanings of each color in a dream. It cannot be emphasized enough that the meaning of the color in the dream is related to the object(s) that have the color, the quality of the color (is the color vibrant or muted?), and the dreamer’s own unique thoughts and feelings about the color. How each individual views a color is greatly influenced by the dreamer’s culture, personal experiences, beliefs/religion, gender, age, and aesthetic preferences.

A dream of bright pink lipstick would have a much different meaning than a dream of a bright pink knife. Dreaming of bright pink has one meaning if it is your favorite color and an entirely different meaning if you absolutely despise that hue.

It is important to note that dreams can mean so many things to each individual and could even mean more than one thing within the same dream. It is common for dreams to be layered; a symbol may relate to something that occurred during the day, to our subconscious, spiritual growth, and events in our childhood influencing our beliefs, thoughts, and behavior. In other words, dreams rarely have only one specific meaning.

Interpreting one's dreams can be a powerful way to gain insight into a world the individual may be too busy to explore during waking hours.

Dreaming of Red

Red typically represents feelings of passion, anger, aggression, power, impulsiveness, or a sense of danger.

Red is typically associated with blood. It could symbolize life for some, while others may view red as a symbol of death. It is important to determine if the dream is showing high energy or loss of energy.

In Hindu/Chinese cultures, red is worn by brides and may be associated with weddings, celebrations, and the dreamer’s ideas of a bride or marriage. Red is also associated with the root chakra located at the base of the spine. For some, the color red may relate to chakras and symbolize earth, grounding oneself, the physical body, survival, and physical health.

Maroon is associated with warriors, heroism, strength, bravery, and courage.

A red alligator could mean the dreamer is threatened by his urges and instinctual nature.

A red alligator could mean the dreamer is threatened by his urges and instinctual nature.

Dreaming of Pink

Pink is a combination of red and white. It is an innocent version of red. Pink represents love, sweetness, happiness, kindness, romance, compassion, softness, and affection. It is associated with femininity and could also be associated with being in young love or the healing powers of love and friendship.

Hot pink or magenta may represent feelings of lust and have a sensual undertone, like the color red.

Pink may also have negative connotations, especially if the dreamer dislikes pink. It can be a color of immaturity and weakness. Dreaming of pink consistently may represent issues of dependency or unresolved issues with parents. Finally, some may associate pink with getting a pink slip or getting fired from a job.

Pink is associated with the heart chakra or the fourth chakra. Some may associate pink with universal love and caring for others.

Pink lipstick in a dream could emphasize the need to verbally express caring and affection.

Dreaming of Orange

Orange is typically associated with warmth, friendship, and other positive sun-related symbols such as a new dawn. Orange is a stimulating color. Bright orange gives a sense of vitality and optimism; it is the color of newness due to its association with the sun and a new day, a new outlook.

For some, orange symbolizes the sacral chakra located in the lower abdomen. This chakra is associated with sexual desire, pleasure, procreation, and fertility.

Peach is similar to orange but is much softer. Peach may be a symbolic pun describing things as “peachy,” associate with peach the fruit, or represent feelings of love/friendship, caring, and helping others.

Eating an orange in a dream may mean the dreamer is taking in new ideas and giving themselves what they need for new growth.

Eating an orange in a dream may mean the dreamer is taking in new ideas and giving themselves what they need for new growth.

Dreaming of Yellow

The quality of yellow and the context in which this color appears is important. It could have a negative or positive meaning, depending upon the dream. Yellow can be seen as unpleasant, symbolizing cowardice (have you heard anyone call someone else “yellow”?), deceit, betrayal, indecisiveness, and sickness. In a more positive light, yellow can symbolize awareness, happiness, energy, intellect, harmony, and a positive mood/outlook. In general, yellow is found to be a mentally stimulating color which is why many offices and classrooms use this color. Most individuals connect yellow with the sun.

Yellow may alert the dreamer to a dangerous desire to please others at the expense of the dreamer’s own needs and happiness. This meaning may also show that the dreamer has a weakness in areas associated with the third chakra.

A yellow butterfly may mean a dreamer is experiencing a mood transformation or a more positive and defined sense of self.

A yellow butterfly may mean a dreamer is experiencing a mood transformation or a more positive and defined sense of self.

Dreaming of Gold

Gold is similar to yellow and silver but is associated with richness in life or spirit, enhancing the true self (who you truly are beyond the conscious ego) or developing the psyche. When something is gold in a dream, there is an emphasis on the object's value. The object is important. For example, gold fruit in mythology is a hero’s prize for overcoming monsters. Golden fruit could symbolize the rewards we reap after facing our unconscious and taming those aspects of self that have become wild and aggressive through periods of neglect, ultimately integrating them back into our sense of self and our waking life.

A gold coin in a dream may mean the dreamer is rich in virtues and inner strength.

Dreaming of Green

Green is commonly associated with nature, mother earth, good health, growth, fertility, healing, vitality, and serenity. Green is often associated with personal growth, a new development in the dreamer’s personality, and healing. Many dreamers may also associate green with a traffic light, making green a symbol telling them to go or allowing them to make a move. Green may represent being new to something or lacking experience.

Green, especially dark green, is sometimes associated with money (especially for Americans since that's the color of their currency), wealth, materialism, deceit, greed, and envy.

Eastern religions associate olive green with natural wisdom, achieving peace within one’s environment, and Zen.

Green is also associated with the fourth chakra. This chakra is associated with love, compassion, and healing. Dreaming of this color may either mean the dreamer has a strong drive to help others and is socially connected or is overextended and taking care of others' needs at the expense of their own.

A green beverage may show the need for rejuvenation or the concept of loving self in order to love others.

Dreaming of Blue

Blue tends to be a very spiritual color for most dreamers. Blue often represents truth, heaven, tranquility, peace, intuition, and whatever the dreamer associates with the sky or ocean. Blue could even signify the desire for a vacation! The color can represent the collective conscious (see information on Carl Jung) or the subconscious. Blue is often associated with boys and could represent masculinity for the dreamer.

Different shades of blue can have very different meanings. Navy blue often means conformity and a lack of individualism since this color is typically associated with uniforms. Dark or washed-out blue may indicate depression and feelings of sadness.

Blue may also be associated with the fifth, throat chakra. This chakra is associated with communication, self-expression, thinking, and planning.

Navy uniforms may warn the dreamer he is losing his individuality and feels lost amongst societal pressures.

Navy uniforms may warn the dreamer he is losing his individuality and feels lost amongst societal pressures.

Dreaming of Purple

Purple often represents devotion, loving-kindness, compassion, and healing abilities. In contrast, purple can also mean royalty, richness, highest rank, social power, and elitism.

Peep purple often represents mystery. Psychologically, this color could mean the dreamer is beginning to have awareness of an undiscovered dimension of self.

Violet is a shade of purple that can have a more spiritual meaning. It tends to still be associated with affection, charm, and intimacy but is also associated with intuition, spirituality, religious aspirations, peace, and spiritual cleansing.

Variations of purple—indigo and violet—are associated with the sixth and seventh chakras located at the “third eye” and crown, respectively. The sixth chakra is associated with intuition, spiritual abilities, seeing beyond the physical, and psychic abilities. The seventh chakra is associated with our link to spirituality or God. It should be noted an active seventh chakra is associated with the color white.

A purple handprint could mean a healing touch or spiritual impression.

A purple handprint could mean a healing touch or spiritual impression.

Dreaming of Black

Black symbolizes mystery, the unknown, and the unconscious. These aspects can either be negative or positive. Negative meanings include danger, emptiness, evil, death, mourning, hatred, despair, deep depression, lack of energy, and lack of love. Positive meanings include exploration of the unknown, a blank slate, change, and hidden potential or possibilities.

Dreaming of White

White represents purity, innocence, cleanliness, new awareness, new beginnings, happiness, clarity, and peace. White could refer to a clean slate with creative potential (a blank canvas), yet it can also refer to covering up what embarrasses or disgusts the dreamer (“white-out,” whitewash, etc.). In Eastern cultures, white represents death and mourning. White may be associated with the seventh or crown chakra and is associated with connecting to spirituality and/or God.

Off-white or ivory may represent impurities or a blemish in something the dreamer once believed or expected to be perfect.

A bride in white may represent innocence and purity yet may also represent false appearances.

A bride in white may represent innocence and purity yet may also represent false appearances.

Dreaming of Brown

Brown represents the ground and the earth. It could mean practicality, domesticity, the physical, instinctual, or materialistic. Dreaming of the color brown may mean the dreamer needs to get back to basics, become more grounded, or explore their roots or the root cause of an issue. Brown may represent something negative to the dreamer, such as depression, lack of clarity, or “muddiness.”

Dreaming of Beige

Beige might represent nudity, getting back to basics, being stripped, and seeing something or self in its barest form. The color could also represent having a neutral or unbiased position or opinion.

A bare foot could symbolize the need to strip all pretenses and take an unbiased position on an issue.

A bare foot could symbolize the need to strip all pretenses and take an unbiased position on an issue.

Dreaming of Silver

Silver, like gold, often means the object of this color is personally valuable to the dreamer. Silver is also associated with the moon, femininity, intuition, protective spiritual energy, and the unconscious.

Gray typically indicates fear, depression, old age, death, social isolation, feeling under the weather, indecisiveness, and confusion. Since dreaming of black and white tends to represent rigid, inflexible thinking, gray may represent blurred lines and loss of direction.

Finding an ancient silver object may indicate the dreamer is rediscovering something precious that lies within. This could be a special aspect of self that the dreamer has not integrated into his self image.

Questions & Answers

Question: What does the color maroon mean in a dream?

Answer: I would like to invite you to explore what the color maroon means to you, reflect on your feelings about this color and any associations you make with this color. Your personal meanings to a dream symbol are most important. That being said, many people would associate maroon with the meaning of red. Maroon, in general, is usually associated with blood and our life force. The color can be associated with personal power and vitality. The context of the dream is important and can help you understand if the meaning relates to loss of power or balanced/gain of power. Our dreaming mind tends to use puns and idioms when communicating with us. I wouldn't be surprised if your dream journey led you to consider the musical group Maroon 5 and/or specific song lyrics that relate to your life right now. Dreams are layered and can have many meanings. I tend to try to examine a more literal meaning, a simple meaning and also consider a very deep, spiritually significant meaning. In my experience, I have found that more than one meaning can feel "accurate" or resonate with the dreamer. There is no rule that you need to choose only one meaning for your dream.

A magnificent hub on dreams. How kind of you to help so many people. Voted up and across except for funny and will share. Big thanks to you - Audrey

Sue B. (author) on November 05, 2013:


Thank you for your comment and your interest in my hub! Understanding what the color could mean could unlock the meaning of some dreams particularly if an object is not it's natural color ex: suddenly your hair is blue. I would associate blue hair with sad, depressive thoughts and believes by the way. Since hair tends to relate to the extension of our brain's activity (thoughts/beliefs) a different color would mean our thoughts are somehow shaded by that color. Blue is often associated with sadness although could mean other things like having your head up in the sky. Thank you for reading!

vibesites from United States on November 05, 2013:

I haven't dreamt of any particular color yet but your hub is quite interesting, I will bookmark this for reference, I hope I will dream of a particular color :)

milleramanda53 from Florida on July 25, 2013:

I think it's due to my work. My brain never really shuts off. I write Children's books and my imagination is tuned into everything my kid's are very active and they are my inspiration to my writing. However I also have ventured into writing crime/suspense novels and that along with everyday stress tends to bend into my dream world.. lol

Sue B. (author) on July 25, 2013:


Thank you for taking the time to comment. Since you are a very active dreamer, I wonder if this mirrors being very active and on the run during the waking hours!

milleramanda53 from Florida on July 24, 2013:

Very interesting my dreams jump from place to place and I am a very active dreamer. Every night or day depending on when I go to bed.

Jessica Peri from United States on July 15, 2013:

This is a really great resource! I haven't remembered much of my dreams lately but when there is a prominent color I always feel it is significant. Voted up!

Sue B. (author) on February 18, 2013:


Thank you for sharing your dreams. Here are my thoughts.

1. The first one sounds like it could relate to a conflict in your life that may be damaging your inner child or something a little kid would symbolize such as loss of innocence. What does the color yellow mean to you? Could this be associated with being driven by fears? Since you are seeing many yellow cars, I would wonder if you are either noticing more yellow cars due to the dream or if this is a spiritual sign that the lessons in this dream are important to you and there is a greater purpose in life.

2. Seeing a person who has deceased (if you click on my name and see my profile, you can also get to a hub I wrote about dreaming of death and dying as well as one on dreaming of messages from the dead) can relate to processing their death and also symbolize a part of your spirituality or how this person influences your current life. This seems like a spiritual dream similar to your experience with the first one. Are you making greater spiritual connections and attempting to gain more insights? The foggy glass and the shadow relate to symbols of mystery and the unknown. Perhaps you are feeling some fears about the unknown. Your mom may relate to an aspect of self. Perhaps you are conflicted about your beliefs and thoughts right now. On one hand, you may feel you can have spiritual connections and on the other, you may feel it is psychological process you are experiencing.

Queenfe on February 15, 2013:

Two recent dreams I dont understand.. 1st All i can remember is a yellow car hitting a little kid. Now I have been seeing at least 4 yellow cars every time I go out. 2nd dream was Me walking down a hallway but I only took a couple steps and looked into a doorway and seen my little stepbrother I asked him what are you doin? he said watching a movie, I walked into the room and my great grandma (passed away years ago) was sitting in a chair next to him. She was talking to me about my health and then she said "It is time for me to go." I could not speak she said bye and I love you. All I could do was a hand jesture, I could not follow her either. She walked away and dissapeared behind a foggy glass door. Then I seen a shadow hitting their head on the door. I told my step brother come on lets go and we left the room. The last thing I remember is talking to my mom in the dream about what happened and she said it wasn't really her. I am very confused any idea about this please let me know...

This is an interesting dream. Dreaming of other planets often relates to exploration of our unconscious and can be very positive and increase our self-awareness.

What you bring back would relate to what you are bringing into your consciousness. Who you give it to could relate to different aspects of self. The girl would relate to your anima, the unconscious feminine aspect of self and the father in law could relate to your inner critic or authority.

They are so divine and fresh so I would relate this to something very healthy, special and spiritual for you.

Green may relate to the heart chakra if this is a spiritual dream which relates to connections with others and love. Green could also relate to newness or growth. Giving these items to aspects of self would relate to more insight into these sides of self and your nurturing of these parts of w you.

ditto903 on November 30, 2012:

hi Sue...u gotta help me with this one, i once in a while have flying dreams but i really want to understand he last one i had. in the dream i flew to another planet, or whatever it was but it was not in this planet. upon my return from that planet i came back with 2 things in my hands, a green divinely fresh rose and a green divinely fresh cabbage. i use 'divinely' because its the only word i can think of to describe the state of those 2things, a different level of freshness, not found on this planet. so the green rose i gave it to a girl, i cannot remember her face but she was supposedly my girlfriend and the cabbage i gave to her father, supposedly my father in law. i did not know these people in my dream and i could not see their faces.

Sue B. (author) on October 05, 2012:

Hi Vikki-

This dream sounds like it means a lot to you. Your mother could represent your mother's influence or an aspect of self you associate with your mother. Since she is driving, this would show me that this influence is what is driving your life's direction right now. You are on your way to church so this may relate to spiritual matters although does not need to.

Speeding could mean you are making reckless decisions and are moving too fast in life. Since you aren't driving, I would wonder if you feel like you need to keep up and move faster. Car accidents could relate to a conflict- spiritual, a conflict of ideas, etc. Now you are in a state after the conflict and are focusing on how to repair/heal. If this were my dream, I would want to identify what is colliding, what is conflicting? The white car could be associated with innocence and the blue car could be associated with depression or personal expression.

This dream would prompt me to re-evaluate what I am doing in life and look to resolve any issues or any decisions I have made that may not be working as planned.

Sue B. (author) on September 25, 2012:


It sounds like you had a dream about a doodle! What it an angry doodle? Doodles can often reflect our emotions.

Since black is associated with what is unconscious for us and mysterious, it could be that what is just beyond your comprehension is scrambled and not making sense to you just yet. This dream may reflect how your processing information and moving towards gaining insights.

Vikki on September 23, 2012:

Hello Sue I hope you're well,

Last night I dreamt of being in a white car with my mother in the drivers seat. We were on our way to church and as she sped (too fast) down the road, she was looking at the houses and ignoring my plea to be careful. We smashed into the back of the blue car in front of us and then parked up on some grass under a shelter to phone the insurance company.

It was very strange although it sounds quite normal - I was unnerved when I woke!

I'd appreciate your help with this one :) Thank you x

ayrene on September 20, 2012:

i dream about black lines all like scrambled and everything else is white i just was wondering if it meant anything

Sue B. (author) on September 19, 2012:


This dream gives me the impression that you are perceiving something as dangerous and threatening due to those colors. Dreaming of something with two heads could relate to conflicted thoughts about the idea. Spiders can be a very positive symbol and are usually feminine but here you sound like you may be fearing it. Since the carpet and going down a step are highlighted, it gives me the impression that matters of the heart need more of your attention. Have you been overthinking or overanalyzing? This dream may be telling you to get out of your own head and start to acknowledge deeper feelings.


red: in this dream, may relate to powerful emotions or even feelings of danger associated with these emotions

black: in this dream, may relate to danger but also the unknown

yellow: in this dream, yellow may relate to indecisiveness and the need for more awareness.

Sarah on September 11, 2012:

Hello! :) I was wondering what the meaning of this short dream would be:

I was sitting on some carpet staring at a two-headed spider that was super close to me. The spider was the same color as the carpet: red, black, and yellow. It just crawled a few feet down one step into another room with the same carpeting and i woke up.

I appreciate you helping me interpret this, thank you :)

Sue B. (author) on August 29, 2012:

rachel- your sister could be dreaming of your changed appearance because you are actually making these changes. Hair changes can reflect changes in thinking patterns. Perhaps she is noticing, or has experienced herself, a significant change in mindset that has led to this change in lifestyle. You may also represent an aspect of self that she identifies with your experience.

rachel on August 24, 2012:

hi, I have recently lost some weight and am continuing to do so, i have a new job also. my sister had a dream last night about me in a long dark blue dress with long hair (i have bobbed hair) she said i had lost loads of weight too. what coulod this mean ;)

Sue B. (author) on June 04, 2012:

Hi Marie!

Since your dream is about cars, I think you should read this article about car dreams

Since cars relate to our direction in life, it sounds like this dream is reflecting an old direction that may need some changes. You are in the passenger seat so it sounds like you are being too passive and are not feeling in control over your direction. What is positive is that you are able to stop and your life is not out of control. You parked your car so perhaps you are finding you are in type of break or pause within your life. This may be a good time to re-evaluate things and determine what your next direction should be.

Seeing your car broken into and smashed may relate to you feeling violated, attacked, and sabotaged in some way. Your life's path may be in need of repair and some TLC. If I had this dream, I would attempt to focus on my life's direction, my current goals, the need to empower myself,and get myself back on the track I truly want to be on.

Sue B. (author) on June 04, 2012:


colors and objects can mean many things to different people. So do I dare say my first interpretation of the hot pink laptop could relate to online dating or cyber sex?

AK on June 04, 2012:

I had a dream about a hot pink laptop.

Marie on June 04, 2012:

Dear Sue B.,

Thank you for an insightful article! I wanted to let you know about my dream:

I was in a beige old "boat" car (one I'd never be caught dead in!) I was in the passenger seat with no one at the wheel, but I was somehow comfortable as I looked down the road and saw that it was a straight shot for some time. As we neared a stop light intersection I knew the car needed to slow down or stop, but I also knew that if I tried to get into the passenger seat it would throw off the balance of the car and I'd begin to swerve. So as I neared the intersection, I reached down to the break and pressed it down hard and just in time to come to a halt at the stop light.

Earlier, I had passed my truck (a red Tacoma). I had parked it in a "safe" place near a friend's place, but when I passed it I saw that it had been broken into, the windows smashed and the driver door was wide open. But since I no one was driving I couldn't stop.

Ice/water often represents emotion. To be dancing on frozen emotions, may relate to how you deal with emotional issues. It sounds like emotions are repressed. Do you skate around issues? Dance can be a way of expressing and the skater is wearing blue- a color that may relate to self-expression or depression. Perhaps there are emotions that need to flow more readily for you?

francine on May 25, 2012:

in my dream my favorite song was playing and there was an ice skater girl wearing a short dark blue dress while ice skating on the ice, do you know what this means?

Nikita Gharat on March 21, 2012:

Also, I've started following you on Twitter! :)

Nikita Gharat on March 21, 2012:

thank you, I think it is about integrating into one. Anyway, I would like to tell you that whenever I see the butterfly symbol or a meditating Shiva something good happens. I am experiencing growth at the moment and somewhat abundance as well. So, may be it is related to it. The fairy godmother reminds me of my late grandmother. I am not in a relationship at present. But I must admit that I had met a very interesting person last year. Someone whom I would like to get close to but I can't reveal much online. If I can find you on FB it would be better. But thanks for your help!!:)

Sue B. (author) on January 27, 2012:

Hi nikita,

Thank you for commenting. Your dream and experience were interesting!

It sounds like your fairy godmother could represent something spiritual to you- your higher self, gaining assistance from a higher power (associated with the feminine). She assists you by creating butterflies. Water is often associated with emotions, our unconscious and maternity. Butterflies are already associated with transformation and spirituality but to have them transformed from water is a double symbol. The two butterflies meeting could mean a few things. You could be yearning and beginning to find your spiritual path and are currently going under a spiritual transformation. The two butterflies could be an emphasis on this symbol or they could be symbolizing the need to integrate two ideas into one-- I do not know much about Hindu beliefs but perhaps you are finding your current beliefs are a hybrid between a few different Hindu disciplines. The butterflies may also show you that you are seeking a marriage rooted within spirituality. It sounds like spirituality and your religious identity are important to you and you have a need to have this identity permeate all aspects of your life-- including relationships.

I hope you found that helpful!

nikita gharat on January 26, 2012:

thanks, it was of much help. I am a freelancer writer and actress by profession. I am irritate on SPAMMERS as well.

Here is something more about my dream:

What about seeing a fairy godmother who makes the two butterflies meet? I saw two droplets getting turned into two butterflies by the fairy godmother.

I don't watch too many fairy tales. But I've started to watch them now to find answers.

Anyway, even when I'm not thinking of the dream. I see the dream symbols in real life. For example, I dreamt about a Gurudwara (place of worship of Sikhs) some months back and then when I went there, as I was taking rounds suddenly a black butterfly started accompanying me. My sister was there too, but it didn't accompany her. I am not a Sikh or Punjabi; I am a Hindu Maharashtrian.

I don't have any Sikh connections but this happened to me. Quite strange!

Sue B. (author) on December 01, 2011:

Hello Nikita,

Your comment was unfortunately marked as spam and I did not see it until now.

A black and pink butterfly makes sense even though I am fairly certain one does not exist in real life.

Butterflies tend to be associated with transition, exploration, spirituality, personal growth, relationships (social butterfly), etc. Black can be associated with the unknown. Pink tends to be associated with innocence, love, healing. In this case, it is likely associated with universal love and growing as a person through love and connections with others during a time of personal transformation.
