Dreams Involving Colours

If you dream of a particular colour, it can have a specific meaning. Listed below are some colours with generalised definitions of their dream meanings. However, you have to ask yourself what a colour specifically means to you to understand the full meaning. For example, what does that colour remind you of in your life? Perhaps your first car was red and you have fond memories of it. If you dream of something red, that can have a positive meaning.
