Dreaming in color does NOT necessarily mean that you actually see or experience the color in your dream.
Many people do not see color in their dreams, yet there is, instead, just an awareness while dreaming that something is a certain color. When analyzing a dream, simply having the sense that something in your dream was a certain color will be enough to let you use the great five-step resource mentioned below.
Dream interpretation can seem mysterious and challenging
But it is definitely a skill you can learn if you have good resources. I’ve been working with dreams (my own and clients) for more than thirty years. This year I stumbled upon a great resource for analyzing dreams when you are dreaming in color. Even if you don’t have time to interpret the rest of a dream, using this Color Questionnaire for Dream Work chart can quickly reveal the emotional / transformational content the dream is trying to point you toward.
The Color Questionnaire for Dream Work
Based on the work and research of Bob Hoss, MS, past president of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD), Bob has generously made a lot of his work available on his website www.dreamscience.org. He has also gathered a goldmine of interviews with leaders in the field of dream work. You can download and listen to these for free here. (Username is Radio, Password is Dream). Think of these interviews as a home study course in Dream Interpretation. Bob is the author of two dream work books: Dream Language: Self-understanding Through Imagery and Color and Dream To Freedom: A Handbook for Integrating Dreamwork and Energy Psychology
