Dreaming with Whales

Every week the Dream Team meets to discuss how we can share dream wisdom with the greater community. Two weeks ago we had a bit of a breakthrough. What emerged is a dream exploration process inspired by indigenous ways of knowing and we’re inviting you to join in the conversation.

Here’s what happened:

As Atava and Linda shared mystical tales of whale dreams, I had a bit of dream envy. Naturally, I started reflecting on my own whale dreams, but noted theirs seemed more alluring than mine.

The deeper we explored, though, the more we noticed an emerging pattern. We discussed how whales recently beached themselves in Scotland (or so it seemed), are showing up in droves in New York and are approaching boaters in Mexico. We also discussed whale mythology and how whales are thought to be carriers of ancient knowledge.

The more we talked about whales, the more significant the discussion became. We wondered, is there a global message trying to emerge?

Then we wondered about you, thinking perhaps people in the greater DreamTribe community have had whale dreams or whale experiences as well.

Have you?

We’re all curious to know why there is so much whale activity, in dreams and in waking life.

As a result of all this whale talk, we had an exciting idea: why not focus on whales for awhile? We can talk about whales in dreams, art, ecology, mythology, spirituality, waking-dreams, etc.

So, over the next few weeks we’re going to delve into the murky depths of our collective experience – and by “we” I mean anyone who wants to participate, including you and your friends(!) – and see what transpires.

Anyway, stay tuned because we’re going to do whale-related activities, too, like whale dream incubation and whale art.

Sound like an interesting experiment?

If you’d like to jump in, here’s what we’re inviting you to share below in the comments area:

What dreams and/or waking life experiences have you had with whales as a central theme?

When did you start noticing the theme?

What significance or symbolic meaning do whales have for you and/or your ancestors?

    Sorry I have had no experiene with whale dreams, I do post my dreams on my website in the form of a poem, no solicitation, check it out if you like. I do appreciate you inviting me to the Whale dream thread, I have never dreamed of a whale,( unless the dream thieve picked it out b4 I had a chance to write it down) without any formal knowledge and the thread about beaching and all. I might be inclined to consider one’s life coming to the open, and subsequently burying (i.e., Diving) under it all, to come up is purely for survival ( Whales need air) In a way it is how I feel as I have isolated myself from TV and other unnecessary distractions only to come up for air when I have to, Like work or something or a family member going on about doom and gloom. I frequently write deam inspired songs.

      I am way too late to post anything but I have had two dreams in the last week of being in a boat with my daughter – she’s 3 years old – and we are watching whales. I am teaching her the beauty and calmness that comes fom such a beautiful beast but also the danger of them if you get too close. I have looked up on line that this could mean I am at one with my relationship with my daughter.
      I also caught yesterday, by accident on British TV , the film the ‘Whale Rider’ that moved me tears and that doesn’t happen very often!
      The only picture I have left from my teens – a 16th birthday present in the 80s – is of whale with the caption – ‘He has no enemies, save man.’
      It is proudly shown in my bathroom !

      I used to see whales in my sleep. I hope they come back. I’m in deep water and they come out slow and mysterious, huge Blue Whales. Had one very vivid one with an Orcha in inlet, bright corral and surfficiing for people to see us. I can breath under water and have noticed it in the dream. Any ideas?

      I had a dream the ocean that me and friends were at was really wavy and the water was acting strange. I thought something bad like a tsunami was coming..eventually I got in the car and waited to leave ..There was huge waves and they kept getting bigger. .I was scared of the waves so I ran away from the ocean and hid in a random guys beach house. The waves stopped for a little and my friends joined me in the guts house..Some of the water broke the glass doors..but the waves ended up stopping..There was a mother and young son that paragliding into some shallow is water and started to swim back..I thought I saw a shark or something in the water and thought the waves brought them closer to shore but before I could warn them the mother was swallowed alive and she died in the whales stomach..The son was so sad he wanted the whale to swallow him to but I saved him..there’s more to my dream but it was super long so I’m going to end it there lol.

    Whales! Since I’ve sailed a bit, whales have long been part of my “mythology” and experience. I’ve seen them while sailing, including a very close encounter when I was young off the coast of Ventura, CA, where the whale circled our boat, then came straight toward us under the water (close enough to the surface that you could see the shape of it and start envisioning whales ramming boats), then raised it’s head out of the water to take a closer look, waved, and then left. Very cool. Most recently, the day after I returned from St. John to CA just a couple of months ago, the friend I was visiting took her son and I to Malibu beach. We were sitting on the sand, I looked out and there, just beyond where the surf was breaking, I saw a whale fin. I pointed it out so we all started watching. There were at least two whales, not large, I suspect a mom and one or two babies, probably either pilot or grey. They stayed at that spot for some time so they must have found some good food. We also saw two dolphins jump in the surf (or one dolphin jump twice). I interpreted that they were welcoming me home. I’ve also seen whales close to shore at Pt. Reyes, during whale migration season and at other times.

    In terms of dreaming about whales, I’d have to look back at dream journals, nothing comes to mind right away. I did write about a whale in a fairy-tale type story that is in my book, the whale there was definitely representing wisdom and knowledge, appearing to give the protagonist exactly the information that was needed at the right time (though cryptically), and then leaving. A bit of a trickster, actually.

    A subject so very near and dear to my heart!! I usually dream of dolphins…but I once dreamed of floating up through different “layers” of experience. There were two men projecting thoughts into me, and at first I wanted to ‘tesseract’ to Hawaii, then I realized I could never outrun those guys. So I focused on dolphins….beautiful, surreal sea dragons began streaming toward me and around me…then there was a burst of activity, of excitement, and my anticipation grew as I could feel the dolphins coming, they were churning up the water. To my surprise, they passed and I felt a strong, deep, enormous presence approaching. I felt distinctly honored, awed…and came face to face with Mother Blue Whale. I floated on my back as she passed over me, and I felt so much peace. Then I woke up.

    Just this week I have been considering incubating whale dreams, and only signed up with this site 2 days ago. Timely. I’m excited to see what arises in the group!

    @Tim – Your “dream thief” comment made me laugh out loud! That’s a great name for it. Looking forward to reading your dream inspired poems.

    @Julie – how exciting to see whales! When is whale migrating season? I’ll have to venture up to Point Reyes. The way you integrate whales into your story reminds me of how dreams work. They give us exactly what we need, but often cryptically! LOL

    @Sunshine, what great synchronicity! BTW, are you a Wrinkle in Time fan? That’s the first thing I thought of when I read the word “tesseract.” I loved those books (still do.) Your Mother Blue Whale dreams sounds lovely and reminds me of one of the whale dreams I had. Maybe I’ll write about it in a post. Thanks for sharing.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing how all of this unfolds!

    I’m very excited that you have decided to discuss whales, as I had an intense whale dream just days ago. The dream keeps lingering in my mind, I am very keen to understand any meaning it may have had… if any?

    I dreamt that I was at a beach with fairly large surf breaks rolling in, and not far off shore, 2 large whales (I’m fairly sure they were blue whales) were surfing in the swell. I was seriously considering entering the water to swim, but was overwhelmed with the feeling that it would be unsafe because the whales might not see me there. Then after deciding it would be better to stay ashore, the whales both beached themselves, and I felt confused as to why they were doing this. I felt the presence of another person with me (I sensed the person to be male, but did not see him or hear him talk). I felt this person reassuring me that all was well and that the whales wanted to connect with us; I then felt this presence somehow urging me to approach the whale and touch it because the whale wanted to feel my energy to give it happiness. I did this with awe at the magnificent creature and felt relieved… Then, the male presence instilled in me a sense of urgency that we must push the whales back into the ocean, which we did… that’s all I can remember other than the memory of how intense the whole experience was, the feelings in my dream were overwhelming for me.

    I have had one other whale dream that I can remember, this was a number of years ago. It was a horrible dream. I somehow was able to travel through the ocean unaided, and whilst engaged in this, I came across a stationary set-up involving one man overseeing an elaborate whale slaughtering operation. It was highly disturbing.
    I have seen whales from a distance at least half a dozen times in my life, but not for at least 2yrs now.

    I appreciate and welcome any and all comments. Thankyou for reading.. :)

    Incredible posts!

    @ Tim looking forward to more dreams posts and poems (two of my favorite subjects).

    @Sammy, it seems your dreams are speaking to a remarkable trend in both the dreamtime and waking life of whales wanting to literally connect with people (@ Julie) (it’s happening all over the world!) and yes, the sense of urgency to make sure these magnificent beings are not wiped out. The Dream Tribe is exploring this collective message via dreamtime with great excitement and care. I was especially moved by this : “I then felt this presence somehow urging me to approach the whale and touch it because the whale wanted to feel my energy to give it happiness.”

    @ Sunshine “To my surprise, they passed and I felt a strong, deep, enormous presence approaching. I felt distinctly honored, awed…and came face to face with Mother Blue Whale. I floated on my back as she passed over me, and I felt so much peace”…this is wonderful and I love Amy’s comment about a Wrinkle in Time.

    OMG! I can’t believe whale dreams are a topic. I have been having recurring dreams about whales for at least 10 years….all types of whales, blue, gray, orca, beluga. About 4 years ago, I decided I needed to see them in real life…that they were calling me. So, I went to Santa Barbara and saw the blue whale…the most spiritual experience ever! 1 year later I went to Puerto Vallarta and saw the humpback…so much fun!
    When I dream of the whales, I am always with them in the deep ocean, which is very bizarre because I don’t know how to swim. Yet, in my dreams, I am amongst them in nature, in the deepest of oceans, swimming with them, and, even riding them.
    I wish I could pinpoint an event that happened before I started dreaming about them, but I can’t. All I know is they continue to reappear in my dreams regularly.
    My next whale -watching trip is the San Juan Islands, to see the Orcas in nature.

    I had an amazing whale dream when I was training as a yoga teacher. I dreamt I was swimming in beautiful ocean waters with my husband when a whale came up from beneath me. Feeling myself elevated on its back was totally exhilarating. When I slid off, there were see turtles swimming by.

    Shortly after, I taught my first yoga class as a qualified instructor at the surf club near my home. Suddenly, one of the students announced, “Oh, wow, whales!” and we all rushed to the window to watch for a while.

    Later, I walked down to the rocks and saw them up close. There was a most amazing eye-to-eye contact. It felt like we exchanged something meaningful.

      I realize this is an old thread, but I’m looking for guidance. Last night I had my first whale dream, and I found this site searching through Google as I struggled to make some sense of the interpretation.

      In the dream, I was at the ocean (I don’t live anywhere near the ocean in real life), and an orca whale was asking me for help. Something about helping the oceans or something like that. And then the whale had me crawl onto its back and hold onto its dorsal fin. It proceeded to give me the most amazing ride of my life. I would take a breath and the whale would dive under the water, speeding through the ocean as I held onto its fin and then it would resurface and I’d take another breath and we’d go again. We did that over and over again. Then I woke up in the dream, (though in reality I was still asleep-it was a dream within a dream), and I was putting something from the whale in my closet, though I can’t remember what it was. And I just had the most exhilarated feeling, thinking it was the coolest dream I’d ever had, but somehow knowing it was more than just a dream and I’d actually been riding that whale. Then it gets a little fuzzy, but I remember in the dream I was telling my family about how amazing the dream was and the exhilaration of riding on the whale. — Then I actually woke up in real life.

          Hi Sarah – what a powerful dream! Instead of trying to interpret it, I suggest doing some art or collage work with the dream. Allow your imagination to lead you (and don’t try to “think” your way to any information). If you were in my dream group I’d have you enact the dream with a group of people. If you have some friends/family who would be willing to do that I suggest giving it a try.

    This is one of the Whale dreams that has impacted my life. In the dream I was an invisible witness to the story but I could feel what they were going through:

    DREAM: There was a community of whales under the sea. They were getting ready to travel into another part of the Ocean. There was one particular whale that started feeling different. He started to do strange things like wrapping himself in seaweed because he was beginning to feel uncomfortable being exposed. The other whales were serious, serene, and never questioned anything. They did not understand nor even tried to understand what the whale was going through.

    The whale became curious of the outside world.. of what was out there, of walking though he did not know what walking was.. of leaving the sea… of breathing air, would he die? so many questions formed a ball of confusion in his mind. His body was going through changes. The bottom fins began to part slightly like the first sign of legs. He was having troubles swimming and began to swim slightly vertically tilted to one side. The whale was so confused but deep inside knew what he had to do.

    So the whale swam to the other whales and told them that he must go and find out who he was and why he was going through this. He realized he was not a whale like the rest and he could not live like that anymore.. he yearned for knowledge of the unknown.. of this mysterious transformation… It called to him… to leave his tribe. So in the dark of the night under the sea he said his last goodbyes, and with his seaweed wrapped around his body, the whale drifted away into the darkness of the sea, in search of answers. He felt he might even try to live outside of the water but oh what a mysterious world that seemed.. so unknown.

    As the whale faded into the dark sea, a voice could be heard everywhere, saying, “There exists that one moment when out of a whole species, one will awaken”

      What a great dream, so vivid. It reminds me of Jonathan Livingston Seagull. If you haven’t read it it’s about a seagull who is different than the others. He wants to do new things.

      Have you thought about turning it into a children’s story or some type of book?

    Whales were sacred to Hawaii, in the past. There were a number of reasons, but one was their guiding boats on journeys (thought to be ‘aumakua, or ancestor gods). They were light creatures, and were easily seen and recognized within the mind as bringers of messages, especially from or of the South. Swells, storms, or unrest and things of that nature. Most of all because they were recorded as the oldest creatures on Earth along with the shark. Hawaiians possessed a deep reverence of life, and could easily tell the age of a time or place or being amongst the pattern of breath they possessed in spirit. Seers, they were… .as well as excellent communicators in spirit to the world before they left the Earth.

    I have always dreamed of whales. Grays, Humpbacks, Orcas. When I was a little girl, I had an obsession with whales. It was the late ‘70s and I was a Girl Scout. We were studying whales for a badge and we watched a movie about the whaling industry that made me cry. I was 7 years old and I’d found my first “cause.” I soon learned names and facts about all different kinds of whales (the Pilot Whale was my favorite because it was “cute”). While many of my friends had posters of Shaun Cassidy on their bedroom walls, I had posters of whales. For a project in Girl Scouts, we made necklaces with clay and homemade beads. The center of the necklace was a large clay medallion stamped with a whale. I. Wore. It. RELIGIOUSLY!

    My dreams of whales started young but of course I remember them more as I’ve gotten older. I am never on the shore watching them. I am always swimming with them in deep ocean water, dark and clear, usually serene, with streams of sunlight shooting through the surface here and there. There was a time in my 20s where I did a lot of open water swimming, participating in ocean races. I dreamed of whales extra often during those years. I figure that the reasons are obvious.

    The one thing I can say about my whale dreams is that they hold something similar to another kind of dream I’ve had a lot of in my lifetime: visitation dreams from my father. I was 9 years old when my father passed away from melanoma. Throughout my teen years, I would often have dreams of my father. They were always similar at the core Something like: I’d be at a birthday party at the park, and way off in the distance, at a picnic table alone, my father would be sitting there, motioning me to come to him. I’d leave the party to go see him. He’d hug me. We never spoke. The communication wasn’t verbal but completely understood. I’d wake up in tears with an ache in my heart.

    Somehow, the whale dreams are the same. There is a communication going on that is unspoken. There is a sense of peace but there is also the teeniest tiniest niggling feeling that it’s kind of scary, too. My orca dreams always convey some sense of urgency. Blue whale dreams are gentle and more like people on acid dancing at a Grateful Dead show. In those dreams, I am swimming with the whales. Side by side, moving the same. In Orca dreams, it is not necessarily the orcas that are dangerous (they might almost be “protecting” me) but there is always a sense of danger to those dreams.

    What a fantastic group of comments. I have been moved by something in each one and I really feel the power of what is being stirred here as we dive into the realm of the whale.
    @Alvina: it is interesting you mention Hawaiians, because my most recent whale dream featured a Hawaiian man who has a special relationship with orcas. Perhaps Hawaiians are the people that came from the whale who left it’s tribe from clarOscura’s dream.

      How beautiful a wish. The Hawaiians believed as you cared for the environments and were taught to eat in them, that the animal returned to life to guard you. Whales are protectors because their life extended beyond man. “Ancient creature” because it succeeded living millions of years. They speak to us and charms were made of their form as light beings. Very sacred. Not many people change forms from their species, and awaken…but when they do…

    In a bay on the western coast of the Mexican baja whale mothers go to deliver their calves. The bay is literally teaming with whales, many of them breaching. I went there for the day, camera in hand, rented a boat and had visions of many delicious photos. Well, between the gray weather, rocking boat, and unpredictability of the whales surfacing I was greatly disappointed. In addition, near the end of the day, it got very cold. When I returned home and was editing my digital images suddenly I saw an eye. “Yikes” I thought. Right before me was a mother and baby whale and the eye belonged to the baby. It seemed to look right at me. Have the image and will post but don’t know how on this site.

    I haven’t had a whale dream (that I remember) but the women in my life have a special relationship to whales. My mother has long been called back to her soulwork through whale dreams, and my wife has had intense meeting dreams with whales that led her to studying and teaching oceanic cultures as well as environmental sciences in the classroom. Is whale dreaming coming through women primarily, I wonder…. is it an invitation to connect with feminine energy sources ie “the great mother.” ??

    Hi Guys,

    This is Julia Finley, Dreams Examiner over at Examiner.com. I would love to share my whale dream here on The Dream Tribe:

    In my dream it was nighttime, and I sadly looked outside my window. Up in the night sky, I see the stars twinkling blue, and a gigantic whale in the sky.

    But the whale is beginning to evaporate, the way clouds shaped like animals do. I am aware that I don’t “feel” connected to the whale, connected to the truth.

    I wake up.

    @Donna: love the waking/dreaming connection!

    @ clarOscura: It does read like a sacred story/myth and I wonder if there are any similar indigenous stories that mirror this one. Another idea is that you are creating a new myth. One in which there are ‘awakened’ whales/beings that are different and are connecting in a new way like Velva’s post…

    @ Velva Exactly! There are many articles/ new research about whales and ‘strange’ behaviors they are exhibiting like coming up to boats/making contact even mothers letting the calves be touched etc…

    @ Marisa…I am touched by this sharing and can resonate with the different levels/nuances with each whale dream depending on species. I have had lots of whale dreams that carry different energy to it. Swimming with the blue whales did feel more peaceful but overwhelming, I had an orca dream where the whale called to me from the back of a boat, head out of water. The Dream Tribe is also exploring the connection of ancestors in dreams and your example with your father is fascinating and speaks to a larger remembering/ way of knowing. From your description, it also feels like you (and your ancestors) are perhaps from a ‘whale’ tribe.

    @ Alvina and Katrina: There is a thread developing at The Dream Tribe connecting Hawaii with whales…love to see how this enfolds.

    @ Ryan: I am curious about your comment connecting women with whales and I have noticed mostly women having whale dreams…hmmm…

    @Julia: Love to hear from a fellow dream examiner! Great share which again resonates with whales and connection.

    I am a yogi and a lifelong dreamer with regular vivid, incredible, sometimes lucid, dreams. My whale dreaming began very young. My best friend and I growing up, who is now no longer with us, she and I adopted whales and always imagined being inside one of those paintings we had so many school folders of… *sigh*

    When I was in Cancun in 2009, I was meditating on dolphins for a few days and having many conversations about them with my travel buddy who is very mystical and has had a lot of whale and dolphin energywork experience. I started noticing dolphins during my sleep, sounds in my head throughout my walking time. I was talking to them from my hotel balcony. Could feel some kind of pull from the ocean on me. …
    The fourth night I was there I had a dream that there were seven dolphins making love to me. I certainly am not into bestiality, so it strikes me as odd in waking time, but in that dream it was the most incedible, immaculate, pristine love and sexual love. I still do not know what to make of that dream. But it was amazing, like nothing I have ever experienced in any of my lives.

    Last night I dreamed I was on a tugboat and three or so baleen whales… at least one baleen – I saw him feeding. They beckoned me to jump in the water with them. I stood on the edge of the boat and jumped into this clear, shallow sea. Safe and surrounded by these colossal friends. Immediately, that same aqueous LOVE, I have no other word for it… I could breathe underwater and was surrounded by bubbles. i saw three whale tails, as if I was in the center of them facing outwards from me. they passed me between their tails and one flung me out of the water with incredible force. Bubbles, glistening, sunlight. And I was awake.

    I had an amazing dream about whales about 10 years ago that has truly stayed with me since. In this dream, I was at beach (possibly in Sydney Australia, not so sure) and along the length of the beach were between one and two dozen beached whales. I remember desperately wanting to help out. My next memory was of holding a tiny baby whale, so tiny, that it fitted, and lay in the palm of my hand. I remembered being very happy to be taking care of such a wonderful but also small and delicate creature. The image of the whale in the palm of my hand is the dream image that has stayed with me throughout my life :~)

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks for sharing all your beautiful dreams.
    I’ve had a few myself. I will mention two now.

    In one there is a “gifting circle.” When it is “your turn,” you get to swim with the whales.

    In another, on Easter 2007, I am with a group of friends, including some Indigenous Mind folk. We are having a reunion near the Atlantic Ocean. I say, “Look how gorgeous the water is.” And then a HUGE White Whale comes close. I reach out and am able to touch her! I am so thrilled. Then she flips off the building where we are gathered and swims away.

    That’s all for now.

    Love and blessings to you all,
    Cindy

    hello. i have had two dreams about whales….

    dream 1……sperm whale
    there was a whale in an … embryotic sack that was floating above the sea by a cliff….this sack was emitting light, a pinky purple colored light…and was being held up by a tiny tube, like the one that holds the placenta to the baby in us…..and the other end was in the sea, on this cliff was a walk way for people, and as little girl and her mother looked at the whale, and the girl touched the tube, as she did the tube above where she had touched went limp and the whale started falling upside down, and pulled the rest of the cord till it fell in the sea….. i wasnt actully in this dream….but i remember seeing the whale glow from the water…

    dream 2….killer whale
    cant remeber this one as much…. but there was a rusty tank with a little window, it was really dark and was kept inside, within this tank was a killer whale, and this tank was like a tardis, and there were loads of old sunken ships covered in rust in the water.
    the whale was singing the whole time…but sounded in pain, and looked at me out of the little window, and looked……in pain, and upset.
    i cant remeber much more of that one.

    um….i dream quite often by the way, they are always in full technicolour, normally have people in that i dont know, bad things do kinda happen alot in them to….
    anyway….any insight into these would be cool……i have been searching for whale dreams..and found one which i found very interesting to me, due to this bit……

    —”I was floating in space and I could see the earth beneath me and as I looked around I could see whales. Blue whales. They were not the same as the blue whales that you see in the ocean because they were made entirely of a sort of light. I cannot say that it was light, because it had a texture as well, almost like a kind of clingfilm, but it glowed with ripples of colour, and I cannot describe the depth of that colour. it was a textured, coloured light substance, but that does not convey its richness and perfection.”—

    (taken from
    http://chirotic.wordpress.com/2011/04/14/basking-in-the-love-of-the-space-whales/#comment-2232

    to me that sounds like mine, the rippled cling film , is just like how the sack looked.

    anyway, any feed back would be much appreciated. xxxxxx

    Hi Amy,

    I mistakenly answered Ryan’s article about Spirituality and dreaming, instead of this one of Whales. Here is the summary.

    Although it is a couple of weeks since our whale dreaming experiment, I finally had something come through last night.

    This is the dream. I look at my cell phone and there is a button that says Whale Clamp. I understand with my dreaming mind that this has to do with a whale watch.

    As I wrote to the other thread, I had never heard of a whale clamp, but upon googling it in, found that such an item actually exists. First the whale is hunted down with a harpoon canon that explodes in the interior of the whale. Then the tail is clamped and hoisted up by a kind of crane where processing of the body begins on the floating factory ship. Does anyone really know if the whale is dead?

    This isn’t what I was expecting.

    I found this site because I had another whale dream last night. My first dream was when I was about 10 (so over 15 years ago). I was swimming with a mother humpback and her calf, and I just remember the most incredible feeling of unconditional love. The dream has stayed with me for years. Interestingly, the only other species I dream of is the orca. I spent a few years working towards becoming a marine biologist and studied humpbacks specifically. During that time, I had dreams at least a few times a week that I could remember. I am usually on a boat, with whales feeding all around me and occasionally coming up to the boat. Now that I am in a different phase of life, I dream about them less frequently, maybe once a month if I am lucky. I think next time I will try to get back in the water with them.

    Seemingly unrelated, I also work with horses and theybare the only other animal that has consistently been a part of my dream world. Maybe there is something about the feminine energy? They leave me with a similar feel to my whale dreams.

      I have been dreaming of whales for over ten years. last night dream was very powerul to me. I was off shore and two whales were swiming near the beach. I went into the wather with my son and whale about my size was swimming with us. He was also singing a song. And the other whale was singing as well. I feel at peace and in awe of the whales. I really feel that the whales are tryng to get a message to me. . I constantly dream of them. I usually only ever see their tails out of the water. this was the first time one swam by me. and also the first time the singing happened. Interestling enough about 4 hours after I got out of bed, red fox walked down the sidewalk in a very uban area , he walked right by me. . I really think the animals are trying to communicate with mer

    I dreampt that I was purchasing body parts of a whale to cook as a stew. I am usually very good at finding meaning in my dreams; but this one I am not able to find it’s meaning. The parts that I had purchased to cook in a stew where clearly huge chungs of a whale.

    Does anybody know what that would mean?

      Hi Linna,

      Eating in dreams is often about fully assimilating something. So, if this were my dream I’d reflect on what it might mean to assimilate “whale energy.”

      Happy dreaming,
      Amy

    On 7/25/11 I dreamed of 3 big whales breaching straight up at the same time together in the ocean VERY CLOSE to shore. There were people in the water swimming right where they were too and a lot of observers that were fascinated and wanting to get closer! There was a pier and people were trying to run out to see and be closer to the whales. I almost started crying in the dream because it was soo beautiful. And then there was an androgenous being that was a whale/boy it seemed like. It was curled up and doing somersaults and was very flexible. It was sort of a whale but also sort of a being.
    I observe my dreams deeply and felt this was symbolic and spiritual..as ’3′ was a very significant number. It’s odd in a sense but I was thinking of Jonah in the belly of the whale for 3 days and later that afternoon I heard a song on the radio that hd the words “in the belly of the whale” in it.
    I don’t dream of whales often at all but I do live in a beautiful area of the California Coast and see whales quite often during my day as they migrate at this time.
    I felt like this dream had a big big message and it I awoke from it feeling happy and curious. The whale/boy ‘being’ at the end of the dream I found very interesting.

    I have searched and searched to figure out the meaning to reoccurring whale dreams I have … thank you .
    I am excited and rushing nearly missing but then with relief getting on boats to travel south to go snorkelling and I am frantic to get there.
    Finally there I am floating in the water looking down deep along a rock wall and then I start to see them. Far and foggy at first then becoming clearer several beluga whales slowly coming up to see me and I am thrilled!! This is what I came for. Then I’m so excited I wake up.

    I have always loved the belugas here at our aquarium and have had interactions with them over the years, sometimes getting them to spit at me and once one was blowing water rings at me through the glass down beneath.
    I always say if we can create our own heaven experience for a little while I will be playing with belugas .

    I had a whale dream last night and it was so amazing. I have always been an animal lover and have always wanted to see killer whales in their natural habitat. In my dream my husband and I are somewhere tropical and we rent kayaks and we take them kind of through these lagoons where the water runs right up to the tropical trees. As we are kayaking, there are killer whales surfacing all around us and swimming peacefully, they don’t even seem to care that we are there and I am in total awe. Finally I am snorkeling with them and following a mother and her calf, when the calf notices me and come swimming right up in front of me looking curious and kind of smiling (if you know what I mean about a whale smile where their moth is just partially open with a little bit of teeth showing), I am a little nervous because I don’t want the mother to think I will harm her baby so I try to shoo it away a little but it just keeps looking at me like it wants attention so finally I give it a little pet and tell it how cute it is and it swims off.

    I am 3 months pregnant not sure if this is just a pregnancy dream, but either way it was wonderful! It felt so real and was so exciting, I hope I get to see one in real life sometime.

    I have had dreams about swimming with GIANT blue whales for as long as I can remember, and they are always a recurring theme: I am a bit frightened, at the size and strength, but also am allured by it as well. I always wondered what these dreams meant, but I awake feeling in the same passion for these animals, wonderment, and awe. I am afraid, yet I want to be near them, to befriend them, … I WANT to be there, despite my fear and trepidation. I am thankful to witness such a spectacular event, but am worried they may be frightened of me or worse, violent over my presence. I would love some feedback on this! Like I said, it’s a recurring dream for many, many years. Thanks!

    I had a dream with whales last night, I was looking up the meaning of them and found this site. In my dream I was floating in the ocean and about 10 feet away from me I saw a big whale tale flip up and the next thing I know I looked down into the water below me and whales were all around me coming up to the surface and swimming around me. It was an amazing feeling, at first I was sacred because they were so massive but after I started swimming with them, I felt so at peace. I’m not sure what this means, but I woke up instantly, like I jumped up out of my dream. It was an experience, it felt so real.

    Hello, I’m new to the Dream Tribe and thought I’d share my whale dreams with you.

    I once had a dream where I was on a bus driving past the beach, and I noticed a whale had beached itself. So I asked the driver to stop — he said I wouldn’t wait, I’d be left behind, so I said no problems. When I ran to the beach, there were actually dozens of small whales (the size of a large dog). I picked up one whale, and waded out into the ocean to release it in deeper water. I was barefoot, and there was broken glass everywhere. But I continued to rescue all of the whales. Suddenly I was down to the last whale, which I released… then I noticed I was a mile out from shore, in very deep water. There was pier nearby, stretching for miles, so I swam across to it and climbed up. As I stood there, wondering at how far from shore I was, an enormous boar appeared and charged me. I was frightened at first, thinking I should dive off the pier. For some reason though, I decided to stand my ground, and as the boar got nearer, it changed into a magnificent stag, which stopped before me and bowed its head. I noticed a ladder next to me, and a platform above the pier. I climbed the ladder and found myself on a deck high above the pier. The ocean was dark, the sky full of stars, and perched on one corner of the railing was an owl. That’s all of the dream I can remember. I dreamed this… geez, at least 10 years ago, but I never wrote it down, it was so powerful I remember it in detail.

    This year I’ve dreamt a lot about whales and dolphins, me swimming with them. The most recent dream I was in a boat, magnificent whales lazily swimming by. The whales were asking me, “when are you going to visit us?”

    I think that’s a hint. ;-)

    • Rick MG September 24, 2011 at 7:54 am - Reply

      PS I’ve never been whale watching, and the last time I was in a boat was several years ago. The whale dreams all came early-to-mid this year (geez, I really should keep a journal!), and were very similar. The first dream I described could relate to the subconscious — it was almost like the whales were beached deliberately to attract my attention and get me out into deeper water. The boar/stag and owl still fascinate me.

      I can think of one possible waking world connection. Recently I organised an event to raise awareness of dolphin hunting in Japan (you may have seen The Cove). It was a spur of the moment thing, something I decided to do after losing my job. I’d never done anything like it before, even though I’ve always felt deeply about animal welfare & conservation issues but I don’t like militant protests & radicalism. Perhaps the whales asking me to visit them is a calling? lol I’m probably the only aussie in the country who’s not a fan of the beach, I prefer the mountains and forests!

      What do you think?

    I dreamt I was deep in the ocean holding onto a whale. It was swimming in and out of beautiful schools of fish. I didn’t want to let go as it was like the whale was trying to show me the beauty of swimming through these fish. They would part as we entered and it was like a dance . At the end I saw the fin of the whale and it was damaged and I hoped I wasnt the one who did that to it. It still left me with an amazing feeling that had been shown this great joy.

    Hi all! Thanks for sharing! Last night I dreamt that my brother and I met a blue whale at the ocean. He came up to greet us, and we reached down to gently caress him, a connection of the soul. The whale did not leave, but rolled slighly so we could see eye to eye. He was happy to be petted, and just wanted more!!! We were laughing and talking to him, and he loved it. A playful, joyous exchange…no idea of the portent, but feel greatly blessed and positive about events to come. I do believe our sacred relatives are speaking to us, and sharing their love. Maybe they just want us to share love as well???

    I have had the same whale and dolphin dreams for a few months now. Everytime its the same setting and senario. I wake up so drained of energy as if i was using all my energy in the dream. the last few nights the dreams came back. I am in an aquarium and there are animals loose, like last night there were bears swimming in the water both baby and adult. I remember how they felt how they smelled. Then like in every dream, i go to this pool and im looking over it, sometimes im alone jus me and the whales/dolphins, other time im with people. Last night i was with a crowd and there werer hundreds of dolphins and whales in this pool and for some reason penquins. They were going to put ona show, but they kept looking at me so sad. I kept screaming out “theres too many in there, there too crowded.” All i ever want to do in my whale dreams is save them, let them free.. there always trapped in these places and for some reason they keep asking me to help. I dont know what this means, but i have the same dreams days in a row or maye once a month, either way its so intense… i wake up sad not wanting to leave my bed and just sleep all day.

      Anais, you said they keep asking you to help. Why don’t you join some sort of whale rescue group? Even something you can do online like sign petitions? I bet if you do your dream might change and you won’t feel so drained afterwards. Try it and post here again if you can. I’m curious.

    A bit late to this conversation but I thought I’d share. This dream is a few years old but one of the few that stays fresh in my memory (no dream journal kept). The dream: I was at a beach I frequent with a friend (in life we have gone to this beach together many times), we are sitting in the water (also what we do in our awake lives) looking out and we can see the south of France (a place who’s landscape is familiar to me as I’ve made some trips there but our beach looks out on the Gulf of Mexico west in reality). A blue whale breaches (normally dolphins again in my experience at this beach) my breath is taken away at the beauty and excitement. I comment “oh look a blue whale!” at this point I become aware that my youngest child was with us and she is now gone from the whale parting the waters and causing great waves. I panic, I reach in the water and all I can see is the shoreline of Nice to Ville Franche in the distance. I wake up, I am relived it is only a dream. I still feel the beauty of the blue whales appearance but not the panic. My heart skips beats at the memory. Right after I had the dream my friend and I went to the beach, sat in the very body of water I dreamt of and I retold the dream. No whale just calm waters, very surreal. Jung said ” only the dreamer can interpret the dream” I find this to be true but out side of parental fears, awe of blue whales, love of a particular beach and Ville Franche Sur Mer, I do not have an idea what the MEANING is of this dream. Any ideas?

    my dreams are over 20 years old, but stay with me in the lingering intensity of the images and feelings.
    I was studying Native American spirituality and history for two years as an undergraduate. There was no overt teaching about whales holding ancient memory. My dreams taught me this.
    The dreams were of whales as an ancient peoples, of a current, but remnant civilization who were beginning to take back the Earth. They were war dreams and the whales were conducting psychological and sabotage attacks on the human race accross the globe from their places under the ocean. Ruining cables under the sea floor, sinking large shipping lines, causing people to lose their minds when they came in contact with the psychic force of whales nearby and many other subtle forms. The rage I felt from the whale people (of all species) was so intense it “burned” me internally. Their movement to the oceans was an intentional genetic mutation from another landbased form when humans beings began their encroachment over the planet in a time in prehistory. I just “knew” this in the dreams. The other knowing was that these were people of a matriarchy of such sophistication, I could barely grasp some of the concepts of how all this came about in the dream. The other aspect was that this change was occuring because humans were starting to live under the ocean in “biospheres” and commuting back and forth from land to ocean as the new ‘view property” of the ultra wealthy. The land being degraded and industrialized to such a point, living underwater was a ‘nice’ alternative. Years later, Matt Groenig did an episode of the Simpsons where dolphins came up out of the ocean as an army and I was struck at some of the similarities with my dreams.

    I stumbled on this site this morning because I had a very profound dream about whales last night. I have been experiencing a profound spiritual transformation over the last six months and my consciousness is expanding in ways that I am both humbled by and a little terrified of…it is just the unknown I fear, so I am breathing through my fears and plunging deeper.
    So last night I dreamt that I dove into the ocean, and the whales can all around me…there were all different kinds, killer whale, humpback, balluga (forgive my spelling), and they each came by to greet me. I was exhilarated but unafraid…they all wanted me to touch them and so I did and I felt that we were deeply connected by an energy that was inexplicable. My mother was on shore and very afraid…as she watched what I was doing. Suddenly I began to move my arms around, almost like a dance, and the whales began to breach and move in response. I felt so at peace, but I also felt powerful…alive and one with all that is.
    I am excited to stumble on this community as I continue to explore my dreams!

    I have dreamed of Whales for years. I am an animal lover and particularly fascinated by Whales. My Whale dreams are always about be me being on shore and looking down from a clif to see Whales in the sea, in the bay, they face the land and sometimes they sing – Whale song, the sky is purple and blue and the Whales are always blue or sperm Whales, very large and it’s is a very peaceful and magical dream and I always wake up with a sense of calmness. Last night I dreamt I was on a boat, the water was choppy and there were many Whales next to the boat blowing out water , again I was not afraid only mesmerised. I have always wanted to see Whales, have been travelling to their places but have missed them even when others close by have said they have seen them. I always feel I have a connection with them and wonder why I dream of them. All very interesting. I’m wondering why my dream was a little different last night- thou I was still left feeling the same calmness.

    Years ago I had a dream of a beached whale on the Northcoast of the US. There were women singing for it and throwing water on it and praying. There were songs.

    Just the other night, after all this time, I saw the whale again and was very afraid it would die; after all it had been beached for many years. But instead, somehow it turned around and returned to the water and swum joyfully away. I think it was a humpback. Somehow I have this lighter happy feeling from it. I was afraid when whale went, maybe I’d lose some dreaming ability somehow but I have this feeling that my psychic self is just freed up a bit.

    The whale communicated through thought.

    Whales are one of my totem animals, and I heard they represent a calm subconscious in dreams, because they breathe so deeply. I had a dream last night in which I was riding on a huge tourist ship made out of wood, and a whale next to us began to topple the ship over. It got under the ship and eventually turned it over, to make it sink. The weird part of the dream was that it was not a nightmare, the weather was gorgeous, the sun was shining, and I didn’t mind sinking, it was just an inconvenience, and my priority was to get outdoors to be able to jump safely into the water. The crowd was panicking but I was pretty calm. And I don’t hold it against the whale, if anything I support its will to topple the ship over.

    (I live on Maui, Hawaii – The whales come here for winter to breed)

    There was a whale watching cruise but instead of just watching them, we were able to jump into the water with them and swim. A stray baby whale was swimming around and a few of us jumped in. The water was beautiful and clear, and all was calm. Then, someone I knew was being played with by the baby, getting pulled under the water. They didn’t drown, but it was pretty scary. (Just like that one lady who got pulled under then returned to surface before drowning) Back on the boat which was now full, the captain approached a pod of whales. The water was choppy and the pod was moving quickly. I complained to the captain that these conditions were not good at all to swim with them because it was far too dangerous. So he drove a bit away from the pod and swam in nicer waters, but ended up stranding a few swimmers including myself. It was hell trying to get him back over to save us.

    Reading and interpreting this dream, now 1/22/11, I feel as if I need to overcome the “choppy waters” and release my fears (of drowning, being stranded, being attacked by a whale) in order to fully enjoy love and light, to be able to happily swim with the whales, our fellow family and guardians.

    Last night, I dreamt I was on a rocky hill near a fiercely churning sea when a large dark gray whale jumped off shore about 50 yds. Then another whale jumped near the beach in fiercely churning waters. That’s when I super humanly jumped from the hill onto a narrow point overlooking the ocean to get a closer look. I landed in a small boat that evidently had been wreck on the point. It was decaying and full of garbage. When I look into the water, I saw the carcass of what could’ve been a dead baby whale although at first site, I thought it was a dead giant grouper. Then the battering sea made the boat I was in break free and I found myself drifting out to sea. But a swell came and carried me back to shore.

    Last year I had a similar dream but the whale actually came onto the beach and stared at me as if trying to get my attention.

      I think there are many obstacles that are almost painful for you to overcome that is keeping you from a spiritual encounter that you need. Earthly addictions are tying you to a world that is starving your spirit. The small wrecked boat that you landed in is a representation of yourself. You need to purge your life of the garbage and decay; and then heal. The carcass of the dead baby whale may mean that you allowed a dream of yours to die. In the storm of your life the whales are still trying to get your attention….also evident in the other dream where the whale came to you and stared. You must have something within yourself that God/Higher Power….wants to bring out and develop.

    My dream was short in content but filled with….feeling. I was simply swimming underwater with two blue whales….they were dancing underwater with me and I felt total freedom and bliss.

    I have had a hard, painful life and I have been full of fear for a long time. I am also afraid of water, but this fear doesn’t keep me from always living at close proximity to the ocean….it’s where I find peace. My 89 year old mother was born and raised in Rincon, Puerto Rico close to the beach where whales are always around.

    I have been dreaming of whales since I was a kid. Until this past year they have always been Orcas. In the past 6 months I’ve dreamt of Humbacks, grey whales and dolphins. last night I had a dream of a baby beluga lying in large kiddie pool with no water. It was still alive and fine, but I took a garden hose and filled the pool with cool water and it became joyful and playful. I specifically remember with vivid detail seeing the blowhole glistening with water and sunlight. It was delightful!

    I have vivid dreams all the time, but when whales show up I pay special attention to them.

    I just woke up with this dream. Very vivid. There was some type of rising tide in the place I was at. The ocean water was rising up to the deck of an old concrete bridge. The water began to crest the walls of the bridge and sea wall. Previously in the dream I was cooking & eating food with family & friends. A dark or strange looking large & bumpy whale came past me and my baby with a roar. The tides were rocking back and forth as the Whale swam quickly past us. The whale got close enough for me to strap my son (I have a son) to the whales back in the form of a harness, that I buckled. I was watching from the bridge. The whale rode around on the top edge of the water with my son safely on his back. Then the whale circled back toward me, and roared loudly. I was able to take my son off of his back, and unbuckle the harness. The whale “talked” toward me with a roar as his words came out, seemed he didn’t want me to take my son off his back. I then joined my son, on the back of the whale. We rode into the ocean edge as the water became more and more violent. Hundreds of more whales appeared parallel to the whale we were “attached” to. It felt as though I didn’t even have to hold on. I looked back and the land was gone, as were the people & bridge; all under water.

    Emotionally I am in a good place. I am completing my goals. I am at peace with my position in life, and my finances are good. I feel stable and secure in myself. I am recently no longer looking to fufill myself with a “life partner”.

    Addendum; I do not have any ancestor connection to whales (that I know of), additionally I do not collect whale pictures or art, I have never had a desire to go whale watching, etc. However, I can definitively say with confidence that when the whale was initially passing by me in the dream I felt an extremely large presence that vibrated through my whole body. The soul or presence of the whale seemed to flow into my body as well, and there seemed to be a very strong connectivity of Oneness. I felt briefly scared, but the whale communicated with me w/out words & that is when I put my son (unclothed) onto the back body of the whale, and buckled him into the “harness”. I felt safe. I felt great peace. I had knowledge that the whale was there to do good & was good. The ocean water was greenish gray (dirty) and tumotious. The whale actually was able to swim atop the old bridge (where cars would drive) once the waters had flooded onto the bridge. The bridge was an old stone/concrete bridge that I could imagine would connect two villages together over a small river. The bridge was approx the length of a football field, maybe slightly shorter. I could actually feel the whales skin in my dream as very hard & cold, and thick. The whale was not the black kind w/ white patch on his eye. The whale was bumpy with an odd face, and dark colored but not black. The whale turned to a side to look me pupil to pupil, directly in my eyes; that is when we communicated w/out words. This is the most vivid dream I have had in years. I could actually feel the temperatures, wind, cold, icy water, all the elements. I could taste the salty sea air. This was strange.

    Dear reader,

    First i’d like to apologize for my English. This is not my native language. I hope this is understandable to you.

    i realy like to know what or how you think about this.
    I had this dream about me floating in the sea at night with a clear sky and full moon. The only sound i could hear was the water. Suddenly i felt someting under my feet and in seconds i was meters above the sea standing on the nose of an Orca. i saw dolphins, seals and all kinds of other sealife looking at the orca and me.
    I never had such a beautiful dream like this and it felt like comming home after a long time, very safe.

    i had a similar dream before, but this was on land. standing on a pillar that lifted me up. i got a crown on my head and on top of that a another crown with the sun behind me and people around me looking at me.
    I don’t know if you can or want to comment on my short story, but i realy hope someone can tell me more about this dream about the orca and me.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this,

    Dennis

    Last night I had an amazing dream about whales. I had a mama whale and her two calves come and beach themselves. But it was like they weren’t beached either cause they could get themselves back in the water they just wanted to play. The mama spoke to me and told me I was pregnant. Then I spent the rest of the time playing with her calves and patting and massaging her. Then when it was time for then to leave, I swam back out them to the ocean to make sure they safe. As I was making my way back to shore I saw killer whales playing with children throwing up in there months and catching them gently. Their parents their watching.

    It was an amazing dream!

    Always a feeling of awe and peace in the dreams. Whale dreams are frequent. usually at least 2 or 3 times a month for the past 4 years. As the years pass I get closer and closer. They started with me seeing them from a cliff, then from the shore, on a boat, in a canal next to a road, and now (not as frequent) I’m swimming with them.

    Last night I had a whale dream. I was on a boat that was traveling along side a swimming whale. I was the bridge. I touched the whale. It was an awesome dream. I am usually scared of water..

    there was a long dream where the setting was a house with a veranda overlooking the seaside and I was in the house half-listening to what was happening in the house but more interested in looking at the beach and the waves of the incoming tide. A friend’s child had gone off to the sandy part of the beach to join his mum, and I was a bit concerned that he would get trapped on the beach as the tide was coming in quickly. Then it was a short while later, the tide was in, right up to the end of the veranda and i was again enjoying just watching the beautiful motion of the waves and a feeling of life. At that point a whale began to swim past, at first I thought it was a large shark but noticed a family swimming with it and realised it was a huge friendly whale. It was wonderful. I opened the glass veranda door to get more of the atmosphere, and was torn between turning away to get my camera and missing the show. Then 2 killer whales followed on, swam right up to the veranda edge as if to communicate with me, and there was an enormous feeling of joy, warmth and love, like we were the oldest and closest of friends just reaching out to touch each other and celebrate being alive.

    I woke up feeling wonderful and still do several hours later.

    oh yes, the whale for me is always associated with intelligence, innate wisdom, and renewal.

    I am actively trying to visualise a new and healthier way of being to deal with a chronic illness I am determined to recover from, so the dream seemed like a great affirmation.

    Have any of you watched the movie Whale Rider? If not, I strongly suggest seeing it.
    It’s strange, I don’t have memories of dreaming of seeing a whale but the sounds that they make, I hear those frequently or at least it’s the closest thing I can relate the sounds to.
    At first the sound may scare me because of how “different” it is to the sounds I’m used to hearing but then it changing to “awe”. There is an ancient peace and beauty about whales. Whales were originally land creatures who supposedly took the sea millions of years ago. They are some of the largest animals on the planet.

      I had an amazing dream last night with whales. In the dream I could see two large whales under the service of the water at a distance. They were calm, graceful and gentle to me. Then the largest of the two when right under my boat or raft and I felt the most encapsulating calm that I have felt in a long time. I feel calm and protected today it is amazing.

    Last night I had a dream about a whale. The weird thing is that I never usually remember dreams, but i can still remember this one as if it happened yesterday. I was driving down a narrow road where ten feet to the left the ocean sat. As I was driving I noticed a huge fin parallel to me and as i looked to the side, the fin was getting closer and closer. Then a huge, huge whale slowly came up (kind of like in the movies where they jump). the waves came through me and i could feel them taking me back to the ocean. I remember being so scared since I knew the huge whale was in there. I dont know, I think that the fact that this creature was something so big that I had never seen before is what scared me. It was as high as a skyscraper. It felt so mystical, and as i think about it, it scares me. Any one have any idea what this might mean?

    It’s so strange that I found this website. I had a very vivid dream about swimming with humpback whales and dolphins. I’m not sure whether I was human or a whale. I felt completely at ease – as though love just surrounded me. We were all talking to each other – the whales, dolphin, and me. I had no problem diving with them in the water. It all felt so real and completely natural. I don’t understand how we were all communicating. The dream was one of maybe 5 dreams in my life that I can remember. I wish this dream would come back to me. I remember wanting to continue swimming with them forever. They kept telling me I had to let go of something. I wasn’t afraid. We were in very deep water. There was no ship or boat in sight. I seemed to be able to swim right along side of them with ease. I’ve never experienced anything so real in a dream. I remember swimming up to the surface and then dipping down again. I felt like myself, only with the ability to swim for long periods of time under water and I could easily communicate with both the whales and the dolphins. I’m glad to see I’m not on my own and that others had similar experiences. I’ve been wondering about the meaning of this dream for a long time. I remember waking up and wondering why there were both whales and dolphins in my dream. It seemed as though we were travelling together. I’ve really never thought of them traveling together. I wasn’t moving my mouth to talk. I don’t remember my long hair getting in the way, as it would if I were actually swimming in the water. I remember feeling the ebb and the flow of the ocean, as though I was a part of it. It was a sunny day, but the depths of the ocean was dark. I felt as though the whales were telling me something, but I can’t remember what we “talked” about other than them telling me that I had to let go…

    I had the distinct feeling that whatever they were telling me was very important. Although I was at peace, I was also aware that I needed to listen and pay attention. I think it’s strange that I wasn’t afraid of sharks or other creatures lurking in the water. I was protected. There were no humans in the dream. When we dove, there was a calm stillness. It wasn’t like flying.

    in contrast to what i’ve read so far, my dream didn’t involve any sign of wisdom nor protection. in my dream, i was the whale.. i was a killer whale – swimming on the surface of the water. i was scared of other sea creatures and tried to avoid them.

    noting that am in real life a pisces – good swimmer- fond of the ocean and its amazing creatures! any clue what this dream is trying to tell?

    I had a beautiful dream with whales when I first started working in the Akashic Records. Since whales seem to be the keepers of ancient knowledge I took that dream as a confirmation that I was on the right path.

    I pulled out an animal medicine card and I got the whale, The whale is known to have been around for years and knows everything, it is a communicator, it is the past and future. Anyway that night after pulling the card I had a dream where I was talking to a whale, she wasn’t very clear so I asked her to speak louder and she morphed into a little old native Indian/or African woman, I asked her about 2012. She kindly affirmed me with what I already knew, An awakening, A shift in consciousness, 3 days of being unconscious and some other things that I can’t remember so clearly but the conversation was full of knowledge and I could talk to her for ages!

    Two days ago I dreamed that several college classmates were visiting me nd we were staying right on the ocean. It was quiet, peaceful body of water and out the window of the room we saw four whales near the surface. They all waved their tails, not as in waving to us but as though they were just being themselves.

    Then we were swimming in this serene ocean with whales near, but not frightening. We slowly swam to a nearby shore then back to our shore with whales nearby. It became night and the water was warm and perfect. I awoke with an incredible sense of well-being and peace.

    I was swimming alongside a mother whale and her calf. She was massive in size but the atmosphere was calm, loving and protective.No fear. She was protecting me and her calf and I was protecting her somehow. We soared through the water. I did not want to leave her side or the feeling of comfort she gave me. She kept turning and looking at me from time to time. She was leading me somewhere.

    I hope this thread is still open……I had a dream last night of standing on Huge rocks where the oceans edge is between land and sea. Off to the distant popped up a very large whale tail it crashed it’s large tail and made huge waves. My 4 sisters, one of which has been deceased for over 21 years all got pulled into the ocean water by the waves. The whale did this twice and I never once got pulled into the ocean. I do remember holding onto the rocks trying to climb up to the cliff…. After that I was in a school where muslim men were trying to harm me and I got away. This was very frightening to me.

    If there has been one animal that has consistently been in my dreams, it’s been the whale. My father died when I was 18 at the age of 53 and has not only been a part of my dreaming world since he left the world of the living, he’s aged in them.
    One of the best dreams I’ve had involves me driving a car with my white haired father in the passenger seat, we were driving on a highway that had the ocean on both sides.
    From my left side a smaller sized whale, I’ll say it was a Minke emerged from the water’s surface and fully came out of the water, jumping over the highway and us in the car. I said in shock, “Dad did you see that?” He said he didn’t notice.
    Then a killer whale emerged from my left side, and like the Minke, emerged out of the water and jumped completely over the highway and car. I was giddily laughing saying “Dad you HAD to have seen that!” I looked over and he was staring straight ahead, as if nervous, saying he missed it.
    All of a sudden from the right side, a massive Gray Whale emerged from the water, went fully over the highway and car and landed back in the water with a huge upsurge of splash waves.
    I woke up to my father’s voice saying to me “I saw that son.”

    Just to note, my father’s grandmother was a midwife from Wales and I believe the source of my intuitive skills. I think my father had genetically inherited her gift as well, but repressed it.

    I dreamt of a whale which looked at me through an iceberg it was in, which then melted and i jumped out of the way and it jumped into the sea in my direction. Was weird cause i was walking along a shore side on a hot day and asked a dude why here were icebergs and snow he said dont worry it will soon past. Hats when i noticed i was standing in front of the iceberg.

    Thanks for sharing your ideas and dreams. It is interesting to imagine the emergence of a message, a learning happening globally through collective inconscient.

    I’m french but i spent few years in Oceania and had the opportunity to swim with wild dolphins once in New Zealand.
    I had few dream with Dolphin and Dugong previously.
    But what bring me today is this early morning dream.

    I was in Costa Rica (one of my italian cousin who is separated today married over there few years ago, as i lived and almost got married in Australia, i feel close to him in a way but for him they have children and so others issues.). I don’t remember exactely what happened before in the dream to make me say it was in Costa Rica. Anyway, i’m swimming in the ocean, clear water, very beautiful and i can see whales and dolphin. It’s amazing. One of the whale come to me. She appears in a vertical position, graciously, almost dancing. I don’t have the intention but it happen that we touch each other twice. I didn’t do it on purpose cause i remember the marine expert telling me to not touch the dolphins as it can damage their skin with microcut in NZ. But it happened. My hand touch her “arm” two times. And each time it felt so amazing ! Her skin was rough and soft in the same time, vibrant. It was intense andalmost overwhelming but i was so excited and happy and astonished and amazed. What was surprising was i had so many sensations in my dream when we touch each other.
    It was harmonious and calm, so so beautiful.
    I have the impression that this dream had cuts in it with another dream.
    In this other dream, i was in the house when i was child but as an adult.
    I was waiting for everyone to leave the house,my parents, specially my mother who was there because i feel like to smoke a joint and i have to hide. I check my mother is gone. Maybe there’s no her car in the entrance anymore or something but i think she’s gone.
    I go at the back of the house and i open the door of room where there’s the washing machine and stuff and here she is !! I jump in fear and surprise becausei wasn’t expecting her and she does too for the same reason. She’s perched on/in between 2 white stepladders. My heart beat faster as i had a strong sensation of being afraid and surprised when i opened the door.

    Then i go back to the whale and dolphins dream where everything is light, beautiful, and we touch each other and it feels amazing. I don’t go to the surface to breath but it doesn’t seem to concern me or bother me. I feel part of the dance, there’s an amazing grace and it’s vibrating life.

    I’m a little surprised that i didn’t swim to watch her in her eyes as a friend told me it is very special, that you can see the universe. I was just very excited, glad, honored and humbled, thankful to experience a touch with a whale in the flow (without intention).

    Every since I was a child whales have regularly featured in my dreams.
    Last week I dreamed of white whales; when I woke I felt a surge of energy surround me.
    Later that day I learned that two Beluga whales (white whales) had been moved from Russia into the horrific Cove in Tiji Japan. I would have been dreaming of the white whales at the same time they arrived at the Cove.

    Last night I dreamed I was sitting with many people I know on canoe boats in the middle of the ocean. Thousands of humpback whales came and started knocking over all the other boats around me. I remember not being scared, and focused on filling myself up with love and jumped into the water. There was an image I saw too, like a big blue hazy mountain sky with spirally clouds. The humpback whales let me swim past them to the house floating in the water. I got into the house and knew to keep praying for light to surround me and everyone I know and love. I looked up the humpback spirit guide today and it points to sound healing, speaking your truth, and increasing music in life. I am about to move to the mountains on Tuesday, I will be leaving people I know behind. I am looking for a job as a music therapist. Such a powerful dream!

    I had a dream that my classmates and I were at some sort of event in the water with a large stage. Suddenly, many whales came out of the water from the other end of the large tank, and they started to do an intricate jumping dance that wasn’t coordinated by a human or trainer. The feeling was that the whales had taken over, in a comforting, yet all-encompassing way, like God. Another group of horse-like, same size creatures came out of the water and did their own dance. We were all mystified and absolutely fixated yet vexed. I felt that possibly something could go wrong at first, but then I moved up to be closest to the scene. I was so close. It was so dark but comforting. When I was a child, I had selective mutism due to trauma. When visiting Sea World, at about 4, my mom and grandmother talked to a trainer after a show, who allowed me to “play” with the whale outside of the tank. It followed me back and forth. It spoke to me in a way. That day I began to talk to my mom again. Whales have played some part of my life at times, though what exactly is unknown.

    I saw a photo on Facebook of a man about to dive with killer whales. Seeing the picture reminded me that the night before I dreamed of being in a boat surrounded by green waters, and there where huge whales all around. Not killer whales, but large gray masses. It was serene and surreal and today I feel rejuvenated and unafraid.

    Hello,
    I had a futuristic dream, i was in a big castle , then i saw a pope standing up from a throne , he was headed to his balcony and waved at the multitudes, while a big man dressed in gold cloth sat on the popes throne, this big man had large horns. I freaked out and left running to look for my father. While on my way, i saw nyc destroyed with fire, an i asked what happened, someone told me that the economic system had fallen. I also saw many people wondering on the streets. When i got to my father, i saw him struggling, working on a small time place. Then i told him, dad its time to go, i also saw my lil daughter about 4 years old (currently one yr). Then we started walking with the multitudes in one direction, and while walking i saw the sea next to us, and BUNCH OF HUGE WHALES CAME AFLOAT , they were large and shiny, countless whales… What u people think of this dream?? I actually dram this 1 month ago.

    I had a dream two nights ago where I was at the beach walking in the sand towards the water as I usually do in waking life since I grew up in Florida. The water was very rough and I thought I saw sharks in the waves. A big wave came like a Tsunami and I was under the water in a protectef area with air about two to three stories high that went kn for about a quaryer of a mile. Above me was the water with whales more than two circling hihh above me and trying to get me to relax I think. Last week I went to the trauma unit for chest pains had high blood pressure and pulse diagnosed with anxiety. I have had at least three whale dreams similar to this in the last month and have been working on conscious dreaming. I have had many conscious dreams since childhood including dreams even years in advance that have come true very accurately for many years. I have a native american heritage, Cherokee. This is becomming very important to me.

    My dream last night has left me feeling that some shift is going to happen in the ocean. I dreamt that I was on a boat and had a sonar device, to communicate too 100′s of whales, that were very upset. I was told to communicate as fast as I could, and tell the whales, that everything is ok, you are ok! The hundred or more whales, received my sonar message, and they all started to swim in such a way that it created big tidal waves!

    I like this conversation being that i dream about whales. My dreams always begin with me in middle of ocean, never knowing how i got there and through will and instcints i get to shore, whether raft,swim, it didnt matter.

    In this paticular dream jus had started same place, middle of ocean, water was calm, i wasnt scared, i was calm. Next thing i know the biggest grey whale i ever seen comes from up under me. It lifts me in air out of water, im on top of his head, its swimming threw ocean full speed, diving down, exploding up out of water,and i was barely holding on. While riding somehow got to in front of his mouth holding it, he took me to shore. Very intense

    Last night i dreamt there was a great white shark in front of me, but moving away. I didnt feel i was in the water, so it was surreal, but i reached out to touch the back part of the shark and i did so, as if facing my fear of it. It didnt respond. Then almost immediately i had two sperm whales and this time they were facing me and instead of fins they had small arms, and i reached out to take their hands, feeling only friendship and no fear. I woke up briefly and then went back to sleep and dreamt the same thing again with the whales. I dont normally dream about whales so i looked it up and found this place.

    Dream: I am about to free fall from 10,000+ ft. Looking at the scene below it is apparent I do not have to open my chute for quite a while, waiting for the 5,000 ft marker. Below is the deepest blue sea with a few boats visible by their wakes only, presenting as white lines showing where they had been. SPLASH I am in the water, the boats I had seen are off in the distance, I am not counting on anyone to come and retrieve me, as I am supposed to make my way to shore by myself. I see fish like tuna just below the surface of the water. They appear motionless, but this is a relative consideration. I next see a huge dorsal fin breaking the surface about 50 feet away, I think ‘that is one huge shark!’ Shortly after the shark passed, five giant bodies of sperm whales are moving past in a single file in the same direction as the shark. With the shark, I experienced a sudden sharp intake of breath, anxiety. However, as the whales move along I am totally relaxed. I watched as they continued out to deeper waters. I turn towards land, not far away; I dog paddle my way slowly towards shore.

    Tonight, after having a cup of herbal tea made of rose petals, chamomille, pepper mynt, valeriana and hops, I went to bed listening to whales singing with the intent that I during sleep might understand what they were talking about and I woke up about an hour later. Previous attempts had failed but this time I understood it. A few minutes after I had forgotten what it was but I remember it was about rather ordinary stuff, things that happen in life.

    After a while I went to sleep again and dreamt that I was married and that we had a child, a boy at the age of about twelve or so. We seemed to be asian of some kind.

    We were of noble kind and there were a couple that we socialized with, a nice pair but they were of royal kind. We did not yet know them all that well but they had a boy about the same age as ours and so they had more or less the same troubles we had because both of the boys, though kind at heart, were a bit of … a handful, doing stupid things, triggering eachother into even dangerous things, like walking on roof-tops, taking a garden piece and breaking it while using it in one of their plays and then putting it back pretending not to know about it.

    This couple came to my son’s birthday and presented him with a most expensive gift, a set of goblets for wine in silver and glass, very beautiful, and I said to my wife that how could we ever give their son an equal gift when it was his birthday, since we did not have such wealth as they did even though of noble kind we were not that rich?

    But my son solved this dilemma. He had a belt with our very esteemed family crest and while they played, having no thought at all about our dilemma or worries, he put the belt on his friend and tied it, giving it to him and thus bestowing upon him the honor and high esteem it meant to allow someone outside the family to wear our most private crest. The royal couple, our friends, were most pleased at this gesture, being no less of a gift than theirs were and so bonding our two families together.

    We were trying to resolve our childrens mischief but the boys pain no attention to our advices and rules. They were like free spirits, but unguided they could be dangerous to themselves or others, though mostly they just annoyed neighbours when they were up to their little tricks.

    But then it came to be, I cannot really remember how exactly, that they were, by chance it seemed, bestowed a responsibility of an infant animal each and since they loved their animals they accepted this responsibility and their mischiefs ended. It seems that this responsibility matured them a bit, enough to put them on the path to becoming responsible beings. This was most interesting and we, both families, rejoiced.

    And so, time went by and our friendship with this royal couple and their son grew stronger. And it was a great friendship. Many more things happened but seems less important in the great picture of this dream. What it means I do not yet know… but the whale song was still on, five episodes of whales having conversations as I am convinced they are… I can’t help thinking, was this a story told by the whales and interpreted by my minds or was this mine alone? It is a very unusual dream for me.

    I had a dream a few weeks ago that was very powerful. I didin’t write it down, don’t have a habit of doing it, but it’s the first and only dream of whales or whale that I can remember. I read through every single post from 2011 until now on this site about whale dreams and they all seem to be so peaceful. Yet my dream was not so. I can’t quite remember how it started nor really where I was, but somehow I was in some place that had a stream of water, seemed like fresh water instead of seawater, and all I remember was this gigantic white whale jumping out of the water over me, I reached up to touch it and can’t remember if I actually did or not. I was in complete awe of the spectacular moment, but it was short lived because as the whale landed back into the water, something went terribly wrong. The whale smashed into a concrete barrier and somehow fell into a giant hole which ended up being a pool. The whale hit its head and I’m not sure if it was dead or just badly injured. It was horrific. Such a magnificent creature in all its splendor one moment and lying motionless in a pool the next. I remember being extremely saddened and traumatized by what just took place. The rest of the dream was emotional chaos, spent tirelessly trying to run around town finding a way to personally help get the injured or dead whale out of the pool. I think I woke before I actually got the whale out, even so I would have died trying.

    Bizarre, all these dreams from others seem so happy and yet mine feels very strange, errie with more darkness than light.

    If you can interpret something out of this, I would love to know more than what emotional distress I felt in the dream.

    My wife and I had three daughters ages, I suppose, might range from 7-11 or 12.
    We either lived on, or were visiting a house in the ocean. There were a few visible mountains, so it could have been a cove of sorts.
    We were happy to be there and saw a massive herd of large whales surrounding us. We were awestruck with the sight of hundreds of dorsal fins in the water and hundreds of whales showing themselves on the top of the water, swimming around and looking at us. Our daughters were all buzzed with what was going on. One swam very near and began to talk to us. He was extremely friendly and genuinely happy to see us. He even jumped out of the water and stood on our deck, wrapped his fin around me and posed for a photo that my wife took. I remember the feeling of his wet rubbery skin and a slight, but not altogether unpleasant odor about him. I remember thinking how peculiar all this was. He smiled at me, said something chummy and jumped back in the water. I think we all made plans to get together and visit again.
    An undetermined amount of time passed, it wasn’t long, and the sky went rather dark, like it was going to storm. I looked out the window and a rival herd of Orcas were entering the area. I started to panic and yell out to the friendly whales, but there was nothing to be done, there were so many. Then I saw a large Orca swimming among the friendly whales and just when I realized it leapt out of the water carrying a baby whale in its mouth as it flew away. I screamed as it passed over, and I woke up.

    I’ve had dreams of Orcas through out my life since age 6 or so. My dreams are always peaceful, calming, and are always of Orcas specifically. Most recently, 2 days ago, I dreamt that I was looking into an Orcas eye. I couldn’t tell where I was only that I was very blissful. I see it in my mind even when I am awake. Only now the eye seems very large, but never scary. Any thoughts on the significance.

    Hi there! When i was 4-7, i get whale dreams a lot. And i can never be able to forget how beautiful it was. It usually starts off with me walking into a huge room, alone, the room would be dark and it will have a hugeee aquarium and a whale inside. So i would just stay in there, staring at the whale. It’s like the whale loves to come into my dreams and we would just connect. But at some point, the whale dreams stopped. I really do feel connected to the whale. And sometimes i do think about it. Amazing really.

    I’ve had whale dreams for the past year and a half, sometimes i am just cruising through the deep of the ocean alone. It’s so real i can actually feel the water moving past my body, sometimes i am surfaced and watching the entire earth sink to the ocean. Sometimes it’s unsettling other times its very peaceful but they feel completely real. I wish i knew what they meant. I will say that i am a psychic and usually my dreams come with meaning. I wish i could figure it out.

    Try to compare prices from different stores
    - if you are doing it online then you should first browse
    the internet for online shops that sell goods like the
    Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler at the lowest prices but with the highest
    quality. It is a contact grill, panini press, and you can use it as a pan as well.

    I dream of ancient whales often enough to find a reason for it . It haunts me a feeling that I can’t shake and I remember detailed dreams . I’m inn ancient times before technology and buildings and we all seem to be on the water on these makeshift docks . The skies are darker and gloomier . The Waleswood swim up to the docs and we would jump in with them in and swim with them. Even deep and long swims as if we could breathe underwater . They were bigger than they are now at least 4 times bigger .. I would swim with families of whales for hours . Inn my dream there was a Sence if urgency but I can’t explain it . And I don’t know a pattern either . I just thought I would share this I do know they happened more often between 2010-2012

    Hi…
    I saw a dream in which I am in the water with whales and feeding them fishes. Suddenly a dog jumps or falls in the water right on the whale’s mouth but the mouth was shut so he is saved. The dog happens to kiss the whale mouth and I immediately pull him back n save his life. What does this dream mean?

    Also almost before 15 days of this dream I get another dream of a fish but unfortunately I couldn’t recognise the fish.
    There was a get together at my friends house ( a friend whom I have not met for long long years) and his house is extremely close to the sea. I spot a huge fish just outside his window in the sea, the fish was tired or may be relaxing, at the same time I see a big eagle (10 times bigger than the normal size of the eagle) hovering up in the sky awaiting to attack this fish. It’s just waiting for the chance to attack this fish. Suddenly after sometime the moment fish loses it’s attention,eagle attacks this fish and sits on it. Can u pls tell me what does it mean and also is there any connection between both the dreams?

    Thank you
    Regards,
    Hetal

    I was swimming with the Dolphins and Whales. The water was clear and calm. Soon they both tell me – I can breathe on my own. We continue to swim and I am now playing underwater with them. I can breathe underwater just fine. I am having fun!! And there is so much love around me!!

    I wake up with the knowledge of how we (Humanity) can remember how to access this part of us and be one with the dolphins and whales. It was an amazing real experience of Divine proportions in another Dimension.
