43 thoughts on “Whale”
I had a dream I was out on some rocks on the ocean, and a whale came up and rested its head right by me. The waves were calm and consistent and not a bother. I felt a little scared but mostly concerned because it was incredible and unusual behavior. I looked the whale in the eye and asked a few times if it was okay. As I would ask I would pet it’s head. I wished I could help it. And then I woke up. I’m trying to figure out what it means.
It says ‘honour your soul’s purpose’. How do I discover what that is? Others say ‘Follow your passion’ and ‘Do what brings you the most joy’ but I like lots of things and have lots of interests; there’s nothing that stands out.
I dream about a very huge whale…its a “balyena” in Filipino terms then the whale were near the port. The size is so big that the ships near the shore looks small when it show.
I am looking at the sea when it suddenly appears. It creates a huge wave, and the ships began to line near the port to block the giant wave.
The wave were blocked but a portion still reached me. It was a rainy and dark atmosphere.
I just want to know if this is a Bad or Good thing for me.
Perhaps a portion of water reaching you from this whale suggests that you need to take the time to reach into that softer and more idealistic version of you. The part of you that believes anything is possible, like it is when we were all little children. Perhaps you are too stuck in the pragmatic side of life, where you are taught to only take the “safe and secure practical,” decisions in life, but you are looking to dream of something greater than just that. Perhaps your emotions are suppressed because people have looked down on any optimism or confidence as naivety in ever suggesting that a horrible life can change.
Greetings, I call myself Artweaver.
On February 3, 2018 I became conscious in a most incredible and unforgettable dream. In this dream I percieved myself to be in the mouth of a great whale. I stood upon the tongue, near the front of the mouth, next to the rows of baleen. I looked around and could clearly see the inside shape of the mouth, but no surface was made of flesh.
It was made entirely of stars and galaxies. I looked at my hands and body and saw that I was also made of stars and galaxies. I remeber thinking, I probably seem camoflaged, as both our forms were made of the same light, the same stars. I noticed movement in the throat and when I looked away from my palm up, star filled hands.
I saw two large illuminated orbs that were made of solid light blue materlial. One orb lowering from the roof of the throat, the other coming up from the back of the tongue. They made contact in the middle and the most amazing thing I have ever wittnessed occured.
At the instant and place of contact, I heard the whales song and saw millions of rays of light shoot fourth in my direction and pass through me. As they passed through me I saw, between each ray of light, a random human life. I awoke amazed and confuzed. Since then, I have reached an enlightened state of meditation twice.
Both times were unexpected. I sat or lay in infinte blackness, the first time, and sensed I was being observed by multiple entities. I recieved a feeling of farewell, then I started to cry, and I recieved a magically warm embrace.
The second time, I was simply sitting down, resting at work, and I was smoothley pulled into the infinte blackness again. I was approached by a lone entity and recieved another magically warm embrace. I awoke and was stunned. I now wear a fine metal bracelet on my left wrist and a waterproof watch on my right wrist and i have no ideah why. I like them, but I cant make sense of any of this.
The blue whale is the largest whale, and also the largest known animal, so this is likely the particular whale that you are imagining if you are standing on its giant tongue. Being on the tongue, this might refer to the vocal talents of the whale, with its singing call. This might mean that it is inviting you to speak up more and to express yourself, as well as your own opinions. The whale being composed of stars and galaxies might represent that what you need to speak about are your dreams (as stars symbolize higher dreams and higher ideals), passions, ideals for humanity, and your vision of what your dream looks like to others. Perhaps you are finding it difficult to communicate yourself, so you might want to look into public speaking advice or writing advice if you need some help in this. It is difficult for others to help you in your dreamed up plans if you cannot explain it in a way that others can understand enough to assist you.
Last night I had a dream that was more vivid or should I say more memorable than most. Very weird, but I found myself in what I think was my ex girlfriend’s house, we broke up almost six years ago. The break up was ugly, and I know I hurt her, but we were able to talk a few months after the breakup and I believe we found some peace. Anyways, I haven’t talked to her since then and last night she was in my dream and like I said I’m pretty sure we were at her house. I’m not sure exactly how it happened but I found myself at her back window overlooking the ocean and within seconds a whale swam up to the window inviting me to reach out and pet it. Shortly after this whale swam away another whale (this one was much bigger) did the same exact thing. It was almost if I was communicating with the whales telepathically or something bc we felt so connected and at peace, almost like I had known them forever. I don’t what to make of this because I’ve never pet or seen a whale in real life or a dream and I haven’t talked to my ex girlfriend in a pretty long time. Anyways petting the whales was literally the coolest dream I’ve ever had and I seriously hope I can see a whale in real life because of this.
I had a dream almost exactly like yours! except i was in the water with them (near the shore). It was so peaceful and powerful, when I woke up (an even today, probably a year or so later), I can still feel the emotion of it.
Whale, Ohswakaront, calls to each of us of honoring your Soul’s history and of giving your Spirit the full voice that it deserves. The song of Ohswakaront is the song of the freed Spirit. The voice of Ohswakaront is filled with the Skennen’kó:wa, the Great Peace of the Universe. It is only when we are in touch with Skennen’kó:wa, with the great peace, that we can hear the voice of our own Souls. We surround ourselves with noise and with tumult and we place our priorities on things that if we were to stop and listen, we would know instantly are not things that actually matter. But if we stop and listen, if we hear the voice of our true Spirit and if we give it full voice, then we can no longer hang onto those distractions that we have built our lives around. Each of us has to first ask what investment we have in those distractions, and why that investment matters so much to us. Ohswakaront calls for us to hear the sound of the Spirit, to remember the voice of the Soul. And we begin to do that by being still, by being silent. And then Listening.
I don’t know that I’ve encountered Whale, Ohswakaront, before this time. I know that it speaks of honoring your soul’s path, which is the very thing that I’ve been working on for some time now. I’ve struggled along a pretty rough path, a very rough path and, sometimes all that you can see is your struggle and all that you can hear is the voices of hurt and anger inside of you. But there always more there. Sometimes it is as large as a Whale, and you have to allow it to surface to breathe. Sometimes this thing can be so large it terrifies you, but it might be so large because it is something that you need to see and to listen to. Whale, Ohswakaront,is that largest part of my spirit that I am not acknowledging in an open and truthful way. It is time for me to allow it to surface.
This whale jumps from out of the ocean, near a wharf in england i think, it seemed like england but im not sure as i have never been to england, but the whale jumps so high almost to the moon, and i was thinking this is so impossible , why is it happening, then he starts falling flat, not like a dive but flat, and goes into this tiny hole in the earth, i could probably squeeze 1 foot in. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN, I am somehow in tune with the universe rn as i am getting a lot of dreams and signs, another one of my friends friend went crazy two days ago, he was reading a “sign book” (horoscope in depth)
everyone else are having these nice, beautiful dreams about whales, mine dragged me out to sea and drowned me what
I’ve had this dream before in my childhood, I was at an unknown house yet it was very familiar to me. I was out in the from of the yard when I’m not sure if I heard something that caused me to look up or not, but I looked up to the sky and saw whales swimming in the sky. I was so shocked and amazed, I still don’t know how I truly feel about it. I wasn’t afraid or anything, just full of amazement. Next thing I know, I was looking up and saw a crescent moon and it suddenly splits into 3 different moons and falls as if it were a shooting star. After that happened lots of other moon type orbs started shooting from the sky and one hit me on my right shoulder. It didn’t hurt, it was a cool sensation but I was still nervous so went into the house. I felt like I needed to save someone. Then the continuation of another that I’ve had before began. A guy whom I don’t know had a brother who was a police was attempting to set him up but I had to lie to him so that his brother didn’t get him killed. He was upset with me, but he ended up forgaving me and we continued whatever work that we were doing. Then I was awakened by my family.
I dreamed I was at the bottom of the ocean. it was a clear blue. I was on the sand with a blue whale in front of me. We locked eyes and I knew I just had to hold me head up and I would float to the surface. The whale kind of nodded at me like now, go, and I did and I pushed off the bottom and rose to the surface. As I was rising i saw golden bubbles supporting me and when I broke the surface, I breathed in golden light. I woke up in the middle of the night because I’m pretty sure the universe wanted me to remember it. I’ve been going through a rough time lately and I woke up and felt – and still feel -that I have nothing to worry about.
I dreamed last night that I was on a small boat in the middle of the ocean somewhere. I saw a whale tail flip out of the ocean right beside my boat. It was grey and one fin was bent down. I then heard it call out to me so I responded in whale frequency somehow. I was then rocketed straight up into the air. I looked down and the ocean was far below me and I felt fear as I started to fall back down. Everything started rushing by me and I had a thought that this is a dream and I don’t have to crash. I was then back in the boat and I heard the whale all out to me again but I didn’t want to be thrown in the air again so I responded in a lower frequency tone. I don’t remember anything after and my alarm went off but I woke up upset and irritated. My energy was buzzing almost to a point of anxiety. I do not feel rested. After my family left this morning I broke down and started crying for no apparent reason. I usually do not wear the color orange. This morning I grabbed a bright orange shirt that is normally reserved for when I don’t do laundry. So my Sacral is obviously out of whack. It has been a few hours now and I still don’t feel like myself. I know whales and dolphins bring messages. This one has left me with a lot more questions than answers.
I dreamt I was on a boat and a whale came jumping towards the boat. at first I was scared but then it landed gently on my lap and looked in my eyes, it was smiling, it had chosen to come to me. I stroked it and felt such amazing love. The whale then turned into a man who was helping me to develop my intuition. He knew a lot about me but I didn’t know him or so I thought. it was then I realised that this was a dream and I said to the man “you could only know so much about me if this is a dream. You are my spirit guide aren’t you?” Then I was awoken feeling amazing and longing to go back to see my shapeshifter dream guide again. I have asked to meet my guide in dreams again. I feel he was helping me to become a lucid dreamer to develop my spiritual understanding on a new level.
I dreamt that I was releasing a golden sperm whale to be with its brothers and sisters of Mother Earth. I woke feeling peaceful and purposeful toward my next direction.
I dreamt i was on a boat. Sitting on the back of the boat. There were were hundreds maybe thousands of grey whales around the boat. But i was calm and it was peaceful and beautiful. Breathtaking. This dream stood out to me but i am not sure what it means exactly. Who can help??
I had a dream that I was free diving in the ocean, and a few humpback whales started imitating me, and then we continued to play and have an amazing experience, until one of the whales flipped a boat full of people and they all died. Then I was immediately blamed for everyone who died.
What does that dream mean?
I have dreamt lots of Whales Playing / jumping and lastly mating!
I dreamed I was on the beach with pack of humpback whales resting close to shore. I could only see its tails waving back and forth above sea level in the sunset. I sat and watched as people would walk up right up its tail and become completely wrapped up inside like a cocoon. Theyd be toughsed back and forth before being sling-shot into the ocean.
i dreamed that i am in a ball of air maded with my powers and drifting in the deepthts of ocean where nobody ever explored while going down the big whale was next to me and i felt very good and strange feeling and then i woko up nice yeaaaa!
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 had a very similar dream last night. I dreamt I had a long distance to travel and a swam/flew across the surface of the dark ocean, next to/on the back of a pilot whale. We traveled very fast and I knew from the moment I was with the whale I was safe. It was a calming yet strong force and being. I could finally see the beach and knew I had to get there. The whale then carried me on his back faster than ever before and I was able to stand up while the water made waves around us. We arrived to shore and I went to get some food to feed the whale. I wanted to make sure it was healthy lol I went and got some food and brought it back, the whale opened its mouth and it already had a bunch of uneaten, unchewed food on its tongue. I added my offering and it accepted it. I then pet it smooth, shiny, silky skin right behind its eye on the top of its head. It received my touch and I felt a lot of peace and gratitude for our experience together. I then went on to tell the story of my whale experience like it was a dream, while I was still in my dream!! I woke up and immediately looked up the whale spirit animal. It’s messagw is right on time. THANK YOU TO ALL THE WHALES IN THIS PHYSICAL REALITY AND THE DREAM REALM. Thank you for your powerful and peaceful presence, your strong help and gentle nature.
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.
Zoe, your dream is the most similar to the one I had last night. I also dreamt that I swam alongside the biggest, strongest and fastest Blue Whale for several miles. It felt so wonderful to me too. Have you worked out the meaning to your dream?
Perhaps you might consider adding the
I agree… I dreamt of a white Buluga and a killer Orca last night. The white was female and the Orca was male.
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.
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 🙂
Thank you for the advice
