Aug 30, Mrs. Dreams about chasing a dolphin show that the dreamer is or wishes to be actively pursuing a job or relationship that is fun, accepting or highly affectionate. To dream of saving one or more dolphins signify that the dreamer is hoping to rekindle the fun and passion in a lackluster job or relationship.
In this way, a dolphin can be a critical symbol that brings to light a less than pleasant reality, but should also be seen as an optimistic sign that the dreamer strongly wishes to improve his or her situation. A normally solitary person dreaming of chasing a dolphin strongly indicates that he or she wants to socialize more, and wants to gain one or more meaningful human connections as a result of doing so.
It is a sign that he or she desperately seeks to break their lonely, solitary cycle and explore the vast world of relationships. Dreams about dolphins are thought to be highly spiritual and can be viewed as a symbol of encouragement to seek spiritual guidance. If the dreamer is riding a dolphin, this can indicate that he or she wishes to move upward in life, using the mind to its greatest capacity. A dream in which the dreamer is touching or making eye contact with a dolphin represents a sensual connection to someone, based on physical and intense emotional attraction.
When the dream involving a dolphin is particularly vivid, it can symbolize that the dreamer is feeling extremely energetic and vivacious in their everyday life. In some cultures, a dolphin jumping in the water beneath a full moon indicates budding femininity, or the enjoyment of existing femininity. Jumping dolphins can also point to a feeling of vitality and good health, particularly if the dreamer has been taking exceptionally good care of his or herself recently. To dream that a dolphin is dying indicates that a connection has been lost, or that someone the dreamer had been previously close to is withdrawing or growing distant.
To lose sight of a dolphin shows that the dreamer may be reminiscing about someone they were once very close to, but have lost or no longer feel close to anymore. Many cultures believe the dolphin represents duality, since the dolphin is essentially both a fish and mammal dolphins are actually marine mammals but represent fish like mammals in certain cultures. While dolphins are often regarded as a positive symbol in dreams it is important to understand what that symbol means to you and whether it is a positive, neutral or negative meaning.
When it comes to our dreams and the symbols we see in our dreams such as dolphins the meaning of those symbols can vary from one person to the next. For example if you just broke up with someone you had a serious a relationship with after being given a necklace with a dolphin on it or being given a stuffed pillow dolphin you might associate that breakup with the dolphin symbol you received, so every time you see a dolphin it reminds you of that heartbreaking event.
On the other hand if you grew up watching cartoons featuring fun and amazing dolphins you may associate dolphins with excitement and intelligence. Your personal experiences and perceptions can go a long way towards how you see dolphin in your life and in your dreams. When you learn to associate dolphins with specific events or moments in your life often unconsciously your mind may automatically bring up old memories or repressed feelings of dolphins which then become a part of your dream.
Perhaps one day you go shopping and see that dolphin necklace or pillow that reminded you of a breakup or you saw an old cartoon featuring a dolphin that made you smile. When you go to sleep those old memories may become vivid in your dreams causing you to see a dolphin which may then bring up old positive or negative feelings and associations.
