Whale Dreams

The dream interpretation of whales

Whale Dream Definition

To have a dream about whales in general means that happiness is due to come your way.

This could be in the form of a new relationship or new opportunity, but it’s important you say ‘yes’ during this time. Be open-minded, and don’t reject things just because you assume that it won’t be for you.

Apply focus and you’ll find happiness.

Remember that different whales mean different things. For example, killer whales dreams can be more about the strength you’re gaining in your life. However, a full explanation can be found further down.
