At one time or another, mostly everyone recalls the color in their dreams. Whether it be the yellow of a favorite dress, or the purple in the car of their dreams.
Science reports that approximately 70% of the population dream in color. This statistic was proven after lab testing subjects that were awoken from the REM state. 13% of subjects reported some sort of color, but couldn’t absolutely identify the color. Under normal dream circumstances, only 25% to 29% of people recall the color in their dreams. Researchers feel that most people do not remember color in their dreams. Rather, they recall the most emotional charging part of a dream, rather than the color.
Science shows us that color affects our feelings in the wake state, and the same is true for the dreaming mind. There are of course, many points of view as to the meaning of each color we see in our dreams. Let’s explore a few.
One theory holds that the color in our dreams is an expression of our emotional state at the time of the dream. Another holds that the color in our dreams, just like the dream symbols itself, are very subjective and also very cultural.
Other people believe that those who dream in color are vibrating at a higher resonance than those who dream in black and white.
And finally, there is a belief that psychics in the past recognized the correlation between colors in the aura and corresponding feelings.
Next let’s look at the actual colors themselves.
