-Whale

If Whale has come swimming into your life;

Whale is letting you know that it is time to examine your own use of creativity and apply your own creative intuition to your methods. This is what steeps them with power and magic. Creativity for the sake of creativity is not what the this amazing creature teaches. It awakens great depth of creative inspiration, but you must add your own color and light to your outer life to make it wonderful. The sound of this mammal teaches us how to create with song. You are being asked to embrace the unknown.

It may also be that your current circumstances are born from an emotional womb. In other words, your reality is intrinsically connected to your thought and your emotional choices. Some emotions we bury beneath the fathoms of our consciousness. The whale can help you understand on a deeper level the actions that have caused unrest in your daily life.

Alternatively, the whale has come to facilitate emotional clarity, and help us navigate through the often ambiguous and confusing seas of emotion.

If Whale is your Animal Totem;

You have a deeper awareness of the world around you and a connection to the cosmic consciousness. You recognize that what you see is not necessarily the reality of what actually is. You are easily able to bridge these differences and integrate all things into the truth of what actually is. Whale people are very nurturing and have very strong ties to their community at large. Often they are the movers and shakers passionately standing up for what is right locally. Whale people love to get lost in their own creativity but often have to find a balance with this world and the real world.

If Whale has come to you in your Dreams;

It can represent your intuition and awareness. You are in tune with your sense of spirituality. Alternatively, a whale symbolizes a relationship or business project that may be too big to handle. You are feeling overwhelmed.

To see a Killer Whale in your dream indicates that you need to be more social or more vocal about something. Step up and speak up. Alternatively, the dream symbolizes spiritual guidance. You are ready to explore your emotions, but you need to make the connection between the conscious and subconscious aspects of yourself.

  • I dreamed I was on a pier at night, looking for something lost. I was very sad. A huge whale was searching for the same thing that I was. He invited me to look far out in the ocean so I climbed onto his back and rode out in the moonlight. His back was wet and covered with barnacles and it was so cold. It smelled like salt spary. I had nothing to hold onto but he kept me balanced just above the water. I couldn’t see very far. I wasn’t sure what I was contributing to the search or why I was there. I felt scared that the whale might dive down and abandon me, and I would die. But it was also all so breathtakingly beautiful, the moonlight made the black waves shimmer like millions of stars. And the whale swam fast and the air blew around me. I felt special to have a whale take me for a ride. I felt special to have something in common with a whale, even if it was our loss.

  • I dreamt I Swam on the back of a whale, I was quite frightened and wary in fear that it’ll drown me so I asked it to not get me too wet and get me to shore. He did as I asked. I then daringly starting to touch and stroke his skin. He felt wonderful, it felt like we connected through my touch. He knew exactly how I felt so I calmed down and we kind of hugged. I’ve never seen a real whale. The dream felt wonderful I felt a tremendous amount of peace just holding him. Then I had to leave the rest of the dream was action packed and driving my car on one wheel saving people. But that particular part of the dream was quite something else.

  • I dreamt of a beached beluga whale, it was being eaten alive by a shark, the shark was feasting on the belugas head, and eating the whale though the whale was still breathing, awful and horrifying, what does this mean?

  • I loved reading some of the others experiences. In my dream I was on a raft in the ocean. I’m thinking my boat capsized and was torn apart..as I was very scared huddled in a kneeling position on the raft I felt a difference in how the raft was floating. I looked down and saw a shadow and immediately knew what was going on. Fear ran through me like I’ve never felt before. Before I knew it I was in the great white whales mouth. The fear I was feeling went to having a sense of calmness.i felt peaceful and knew I was safe.I have to say the whale was positioned with his tail deep in the water with only his mouth open above the water.just enough for me and the raft to be just inside his mouth. Top of mouth on one side of me and the bottom on the other. He was taking me to land where he knew I would be safe..I saw what looked like an island bu before I got to it I woke up.this experience for me was so wonderful. Ps. I am terrified of water

  • i dreamt i was swimming underneath a huge blue/green whale and looking up at it and seeing its tail coming down and ducking thinking it was going to hit my head. I did this repeatedly. There was a man swimming a small distance away. This was deep under the sea.

  • Great reading all your xperiences and dreams.

    For the first time ever, I had a dream last night that I wanted to see or was given the opportunity to ride a humpback whale. I remember getting on and being in the water and waiting for it to start moving. I remember being pushed back a little as it kicked up speed. I remember thinking “wow this is exciting but A LOT faster than I had imagined!!”.

    I continues the ride and it was fab but then I remember being terrified of drowning or losing balance when I tried to dismount. I was scared because I didn’t know if the force of the water was going to take me under if I jumped off but anyway, whatever happened I was completely safe and the beautiful whale swam off.

    I can’t remember feeling any particular emotion when I woke up. Not happy or sad, just curious as to what it meant.

  • One day I was at the helm of my trimaran sail boat. My husband and a good friend of ours were down in the galley playing chess so I was alone outside. All of a sudden I saw a GIGANTIC eye rise up through the water looking straight at me. It was a blue whale, the largest of all whales. It was so close to the boat that if I stood on an outer pontoon I could have touched it. I quickly ducked my head down into the galley and told the guys they had to come up and see something incredible. They did so immediately. The 3 of us were in complete awe and amazement as the whale swam along with us. Blue whales would not intentionally do anything to harm humans, but we realized that if the whale got too close to the trimaran it could flip the boat over and there is no way for a multi-hulled to self upright. We would have been in the water out in the ocean with no way to help ourselves to safety. The whale seemed to understand our excitement to be with it and yet sense our concern. It swam further out from the boat but stayed right along side us for several miles. It was wonderful.

  • Perhaps you might consider adding the
    Beluga Whale.

  • I recently took a trip to Maui where the whale season was peak. It was quite a remarkable week spent with a lot of auspicious connections. Upon my return, I have had 4 whale dreams in one week. They have all been very clear on some level for me to see them. I’m fascinated. In reading many angles all over the internet, the animal totems seem to resonate more. If anything, I am clear to access something within me using sound. I really get it. It will be fun to watch it unfold. Thanks for your take on it.
    In gratitude,

  • Every once in awhile I have a dream with a whale (humpback/grey whale) where I have a brisk encounter and then it dissapears but it leaves me with this sense of peace and awe that is hard to describe in words…for example last night I was by the ocean and I was looking out to the water and there were whales visible by the shore; so close I worried for them that they might be in danger…I quickly headed out to the water and when I got there, the ocean had turned into a massive open tank aquarium. I jumped on a platform buoy and reached my hand out over the water and just as I did that a massive shape in the water started coming towards me, lifted head from the water and touched my hand with it’s nose, it did that more than once, but I can’t remember if it was 2 or 3 times.. It was a beautiful humpback or grey whale…Then as soon as the whale dissapeared I saw the horror of what the aquarium was; there were ANGRY and crazed killer whales and dolphins swimming and hitting the sides, trying to escape. I angrily spoke to the managers about how wrong it was, but my words fell upon deaf ears…anyway in my experience; the feeling in dreams associated with grey/humpback whales is positive, awe-inspiring beauty (atleast for that instant.) The feeling associated with killer whales in dreams is always deep sadness and loss, and a feeling I must help them in some way.

    The whale dreams started happening after an ecounter at sea world where I was chosen out of a crowd of 100’s to come down and sit atop “free willy’s” back. Of course I was elated at the time, being a small child, the connection with whales has never left me.

  • I go back and forth in my life…I grew up in a very religious way, where there is only black and white; good and evil. For decades I was trained to believe or impressed to believe that if it wasn’t in ‘the word’ or ‘of God’ it was evil. I also led a very sad life…I always felt confused and misplaced. It was not until I married and moved to a very ‘new aged’ community that I began to realize my life was far more complex than ‘black and white’. I began treating my mind and body with alternative therapies…and I believe this is when my mind…was fully able to open. I still have a hard time navigating through ‘gifts’ that I have…things that I ‘see’ but I can not deny them. (Acceptance is half the journey, no?) I have had owls visit me…in every major ‘pay attention’ moment of my life. In some cases they’d stay in trees outsode my bedroom window…day and night…until I understood why they were there…this at times was terrifying. My point: yesterday I visited my local farmers market. I have recently moved back to the coast…a soulmate of mine. I have been infatuated with the ocean my entire life. Living by the Sea is a dream and an honor. I have been away for far too long…in the cold and midwest. I stopped to gather my thoughts wanting to look out over the water for a bit. I was alone for the first time in what seemed like weeks. (I am a mother of three small children.) I was admiring the sunset and feeling grateful. Just as I could blink a large (and I do mean large) round black head quietly appeared in the water infront of me…she blew out…then gently sunk back in…and I did not see her again. There were dolphins rolling in and out…and it was not a manatee…another common sight in our area. I knew…what it was…a pilot whale. I have never seen a whale in the wild and never thought I’d stand and see one in the marina where I had just purchased celery and duck eggs. :) i stood alone. No one saw her. I could not help but think she had appeared just for me. I felt honored but sad no one I loved had been there to solidify her appearance! I never comment on things like this… But I feel inclined. :)

    • I can not believe the similarities between us reading you’re comment I too come from a strong religious background but ‘broke free’ when I met my husband, I have three children & my birth name is Amanda,
      Reading you’re comment It was like reading something I would have wrote
      I have had so many ‘visits’ through my life at times of need but not realised it until recently
      I also feel’ drawn’ to the ocean but unfortunately i couldn’t be further from it but when I am there i am HOME
      I to have had experiences where I have been lucky enough to see creatures from earth, sky & sea but could not tell anyone else as they would not believe me
      I hope you have found peace & continue to be guided through your journey x 😐

  • First of all thank you for this information, it has helped me to understand what I am going through right now. The first time I dreamt about a whale was during a lucid dream where I like to just fly around and make the terrain as beautiful as I possibly can, but then the dream turned on me, I stood before a vast expanse of darkness which I discovered was the ocean. Usually when I encounter water in my dreams and if I am lucid I love to plunge in and breath under water but this water did not let me in, it was scary and I almost didnt want to dive in. I began to think of what might lurk beneath the waters and quickly caught myself lest I conjure up a huge man eating shark. Then he appeared, a large blue whale right underneath me, I was a bit scared at first but then the thought of riding on the back of the whale was exciting so I went with it. It dived and I felt myself go under but not too deep before it resurfaced and dived again. I felt safe on his back and I felt as if he was protecting me from the darkness below. I woke up then and wished I could stay a little longer.
    The second time the whale came to me was today in an afternoon nap where I usually can be lucid if I choose. The dream starts like any other with me realising I am dreaming and then I immediately go outside and take off to fly around. Again the ocean was before me. I saw the whale waiting for me so I went to him and landed on his back. Immediately he leapt for the ocean which was barred by 2 large storm drain gates. The whale crashed up against them to try to break through and I noticed the latch which I opened and the gate swung open and he leapt through to the next gate, again without hesitation I opened that latch and we were in open water. I was carried to a place streaming with fish, so many fish there was hardly space for the water in the sea. We dived and I felt the fish all around me, large and tiny fish. As we were going down I felt my mouth catch some of the tiniest fish and I tried to get them out. The journey took me to a place where I got off the whale and went to visit someone, it was an odd encounter but when this person saw the whale he wanted to catch him and put him on display. I would not have that happen so I raced to my whale and fought of the swarm of people now all trying to catch him, I carried my now much smaller whale to the ocean and then he was big again and we raced “home” we were safe so I bade him farewell and then woke up.

    When the whale appeared to me the second time I decided to look up what it meant and I am glad to have found your post, thank you.

  • I don’t know why, but lately, I’ve had two dreams with whales. Both terrifying because I don’t like to swim with fish, therefore I don’t like being in the ocean. The first dream the whale was huge, with a blow hole that could make a whirlpool, on top of that it was poisonous, yet harmless. The second dream, I had to be the whale and try to live as a whale, but I was completely dysfunctional and couldn’t swim no matter how I tried. I tried to use echolocation as the whale…also failed haha. The scariest part was there was a shark that snapped at me. I couldn’t swim away, then I woke up. Then the word whale would come up in my waking life as well, too many whales, I don’t understand.

  • Often when I dream about Whales I feel a sense of fear, I often fear the whale in my dream is going to swallow me, even though I know this is impossible. Often when I dream about the ocean I feel anxiety about drowning

    • Hello Amanda: The whale in your dream is symbolic of your fear in exploring your emotions. You’ve been bottling up your feelings for a long time – to the point of numbness in your waking life. You fear that even a small crack in that veneer will start the floodgates. Emotions are healthy if you take the time to feel them, integrate them and understand them. One step at a time :-)
