Dream symbol Dolphin


joyful, lightness, peaceful, playful, intelligent

On the dream level, a live dolphin promises healing and happiness. It prophesies a joyful time and represents the playfulness in people. There are myths from ancient Atlantis that say that high priests contacted dolphins because they were said to be blessed with wisdom . Likewise, in Greek mythology the dolphin appears, which helped Poseidon, the god of the sea, to soften the heart of the goddess Amphitrite and whereupon nothing stood in the way of a marriage of the two deities. As a result, the dolphin was immortalized as a constellation in the firmament.

Nowadays, these peaceful and lovable creatures are often used in therapies. They are easily accessible due to their playfulness and are able to establish contact with the sick person in a short time and support him in his healing process. Swimming with a dolphin can cause a kind of happiness in the dream, which lasts even when they already wake up.

General dream interpretation

It has been noted that a dolphin is a highly intelligent mammal, which in dreams also represents profound feelings, erotic encounters, as well as moral attitudes. Therefore, it is not surprising that dolphins also symbolize sexuality, pregnancy, femininity and gentleness .

If a dolphin crosses in a dream, it is a great ray of hope for the dreamer. You were often heard to be a sudden savior on the open sea for sailors in distress.

All the details from the concrete events in a dolphin dream could be helpful again, therefore it would be advisable to remember them as well.

Positive dream symbol

The lively and playful dolphin indicates that an exceedingly auspicious time of joy and ease is ahead.

Negative dream symbol

A dead dolphin, on the other hand, cannot be interpreted as a symbol of happiness, but rather indicates loss.

Other possible interpretations arise from the various dream images, such as with dolphins swimming in the dream, which indicates closeness to nature. In the water with the dolphin in the play could indicate new friendships. If a dolphin in a dream leads the dreamer into the depths of the sea, it could reveal deep things from the life of the soul. Squeaky happy jumping dolphins symbolize in getting a successful life mastered in playful ease. Dolphins in cold water show that duties and responsibilities should be taken seriously again in the first place. And dolphins swimming in warm water stand for contentment.

Psychological dream interpretation

For psychoanalysts such as C. G. Jung or Sigmund Freud, dreams serve as a "bridge to the unconscious". The dream image of the dolphin stands not only for happiness, but also for intelligence and the ability to communicate, which further means that the subconscious is trying to make contact with the conscious. The person concerned should therefore see this as a hint to deal with his feelings more deeply and profoundly when a dolphin pays him a visit in a dream. The inner life of the soul is completely exposed by a kind of dream like this.

Even if in the dream a dolphin rushes to help , the person in question will probably receive support from a certain person in everyday life. Here it is important to observe carefully after waking up, who offers himself as a helper and stands by the side in the waking state.

Spiritual dream interpretation

If a dolphin as a power animal swims across the screen in a dream, it encourages the dreamer to rediscover joy of life, serenity and lightness and to integrate them into everyday life. One could already be closer to the goal than one assumes.
