Dream meaning: Whale

Dreaming of a whale represents a contact with our unconscious, the underworld and our shadow. Whale is a mammal that lives underwater and needs to surface from time to time. A whale in a dream has a meaning of intuition which lies down under and surfaces occasionally. It can also mean archetypal symbol for the Great Mother.

    I had a dream it was very dark and stormy. Im not sure where i am. But i see a large pool just off the shore of the ocean. Its storming heavily. There’s a great commotion over by the pool just off shore so i wander over to get a closer look. I see i giant Humpback whale in the pool. She’s very distressed and thrashing there’s cuts on her back. Instantly i knew i had to save her. Im not sure how i do it but in the end i free her of the pool unlocking a little latch on the door. She pauses and stares at me a long time before diving away. Somehow i know ive made a life long friend, and she will be watching and protecting me from somewhere unknown. I feel like the whale symbolizes something very important. She was huge and very very wise.

    Last night I had a dream the worlds largest humpback whale danced and jumped out of the ocean for me and friends and family I knew. While I was in awe of her magestic dance I was also scared about her giant waves wshing upon the shore. She cleansed the earth with her waves but as scared I was fearing I would be drowned by her waves I was happy that after it was over I could see her far away still doing her dance. It was cool and I woke up calm today

    Last night I dreamt that I went down to the sea that and a pilot whale was close to shore hanging out and seemingly communicating with a bird on the beach i think. I got in the water and went up to it gently it let me pat it and kiss it, it was very friendly and happy to see me. The dream was very vivid. Thing is I didn’t specifically know what a pilot whale looked like. but when I looked it up on the net this morning it was exactly as in my dream. I have often dreamt of being amongst sea creatures in the tides, some extinct even, but this is the first time I interacted with one. not sure what it means but I enjoyed the dream

    This is a weird one. I was flying on a bed over a wide river with houses below. There were tiny pilot whales(size of your hand) flying beside me. The river below was filled with orcas( killer whales ) the baby pilot whales looked frightened so I let them land on my bed, then other people were on flying beds saving baby pilot whales, including a girl I went to grade school with who I haven’t layed eyes on in twenty years.
    About a year after this dream I received a friend request from my childhood friend, on her cover page were shots she took of orcas during an Alaskan cruise.
    Dreams are so strange and wonderful.

    I was sitting on an old dock. My feet in the water. I saw what I Thought were sharks but the ended up being really big fish. One came so close to me that I touched it. I looked out into the ocean and there are a lot of commotion in the water. A big whale came up and swam right in front of my feet. I was afraid but at the same time I felt like I was ok and I didn’t move. I stayed Rt there with my feet in the water. The whale ate a fish and left. Then I woke up

    All my dreams start off in a very warm familiar place. Like I am in my house but all my stuff is 3 times bigger, softer and closer than usual. This dream evolved to me being surprised at finding 50,000 pounds in my bank account, I was weary and did not celebrate the idea, before I worked out why it was there. I was leaving the house and walked across the beach. It was grey. I saw a whale on the sea in the distance. In the same instance I suddenly noticed another whale washed up on the beach, still alive. Someone else was already there. I just stopped and looked for a long time before walking over. I felt the whale was looking back at me. I have snap shots of pushing it hard, and it’s eye. I felt like a little girl.

    At first I was looking out to an endless borderless ocean….I think I was on the edge of some sort of reef with wooden planks. I looked down and I saw what appeared to be a whale…but its funny cause in the dream I was thinking that maybe it wasn’t a whale.
    The whale came above water and I noticed it was eyeless and that kinda jolted me back and then slowly the whale continued to follow me, eventually crashing onto the reef. The whale eventually went back into the ocean.

    I had a dream that my Family was having a beach day @ Old Orchard beach and my mum had invited her friend and her daughter. When we got there my mum told me that the whale was coming. I was scared of confronting the whale for some reason. I got the sense that she was the “Whale mother” type of thing. I saw the whale wash up on the shore. It was a HUGE humpback whale. I guess she came to shore once everyday. I ran inside the Hotel on the beach and ended up getting lost in there the entire day. Someone finally walked me out of the hotel and I found my mum and she told me that the whale was very upset with me as we were leaving. Thats where my dream ended. It was one of the clearest dreams I’ve had in a while.

    I dreamed that I was at a restaurant with a little boy that was supposedly my brother, but he wasn’t my real brother. The restaurant had no walls, it was made out of wood. But I noticed that there were some stairs that led to a huge pool. Inside the pool there was a huge dead whale. I shivered when I went down there - the whale came out of nowhere. But I felt it was not dead because something inside it connected to me - like if it was trying to tell me something. My little brother was with me by the pool, but he wasn’t really scared. He was just looking at it. so I decided to go back upstairs to get a drink. When I went up, I saw three witches drinking human blood. One of them was the mom of my little brother - and she was drinking her own son’s blood. So I decided to run down to check on my little brother that was by the whale, but he was gone. And then I woke up.

    I dreamed that I was on a terrace on a skyscraper/high apartment building with my mother. I was looking down outside at a reservoir/small lake with clear water. All of a sudden there is a big blue humpback whale that is swimming there. It takes up a lot of the space in the water–it almost looks like it’s fine–the water is sparkling, but I know it must be trapped. I lean over to try and take a photo with my phone but all of a sudden everything starts shifting and the floor of the terrace starts tilting over the side. My mom and I try to hold on to anything so we don’t fall over, but we start sliding down towards the edge. It’s almost a magnet pulling us there. Then…it stops, the whale is gone.
