I often ask people if they dream in Technicolor.  So far, everyone has said “yes.”  This amazes me because I can only recall dreaming in Technicolor once.  The dream, which featured a sunset,  lasted only a second.

I often dream in sepia or black and white.  Sometimes an object is highlighted in red or green or some other color.   It’s fair to say that I dream about color rather than in color.

What does the Bible have to say about the significance of color in dreams and/or visions?  Daniel 2: 1-45 records King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of an image with a head of gold, breasts and arms of silver, belly and thighs of brass, legs of iron, and feet and toes of iron mixed with clay.  Each section represents a kingdom, beginning with Babylon (Nebuchadnezzar, the head of gold).

Colors can be symbolic as the Bible demonstrates.    John Paul Jackson discusses the meaning of color in his 6-CD set  “Understanding Dreams & Visions.”  Even without additional helps, you can sometimes figure out what a color means within the context of your dream.  Red, for example, can have a positive or a negative connotation.

  1. Interesting question! I’ll have to start noticing whether its b/w or color. My French teacher once said dreaming in French would be a sign that I really knew the language–guess I’m still learning. Thanks for the pingback.

  2. Hi Caroline. Your French teacher made an interesting observation. Dreaming in a different language is something I’ve never thought of. Sweet dreams.
