To dream in black and white suggests that you need to be more objective in formulating your decisions. You may be a little too unyielding in your thought processes, and thus need to find some sort of balance between two opposing views. Consider the views and opinions of others. Alternatively, black and white dreams may be a sign of depression or sadness. You may feel that there is not enough excitement in your life.
It is a quite commonly held belief that we only dream in black and white, but many people are able to identify tones of color in their dreams.
If this is the case, why is it believed that we only dream in black and white? It may be because dreams that appear to be black and white only appear so because the color is not relevant. This doesn’t necessarily mean, however, that such dreams are in black and white. Black and white is a function of television when the color information is removed, but the same is not true of the mind. For example, grass might not be green in a dream, but it’s not gray as it is in a black and white movie; the color simply is not relevant and your unconscious isn’t highlighting it. This non-relevance fools the conscious mind on waking up into concluding that, by implication, the dream must have been in black and white.
A black funeral may suggest difficulties in, or the need for a new approach to, a relationship or work issue, as the current approach is doomed. Or are you grieving for a phase or aspect of your life that has recently come to an end? As stated above, black often represents the death of new ideas, so could your dream be telling you to prepare for the transition? Black animals that appear in dreams are usually associated with notions of temptation, unconscious drives and urges, whilst black clothes and underwear are a symbol of hidden or unconscious feelings, or sexuality. A night dream scene shrouded in darkness may relate to a certain lack of direction in your waking life. According to traditional symbolism, black is also associated with wickedness, so if you are menaced by a person wearing black in your dream, could the dream be a depiction of your darkest fears. Do you worry that someone is a threat to you or are you your own worst enemy?

General Meaning: Your ability to sustain and strengthen yourself through your own will.
Positive: Before the days of airplanes and cars, your best bet was to find yourself a healthy horse or if you could not afford it, your legs just had to do! • Your legs speak of your ability to get yourself from one place to another. Your very will to push ahead. As humans we continually strive forward.
• This scripture could not said it any better: • Psalms 147:10 He delights not in the strength of the horse: he takes not pleasure in the legs of a man.
• When this ability is submitted to the Lord, we are able to run the race (Heb 12:1) that He has set before us. However when you leave the Lord out of it, you will find yourself becoming tripped up.
• If you dream of your legs being strengthened, it means that the Lord is going to strengthen your ability to get the job done! He has set a race before you and He intends for you to win it, but with His help!
Only those that have been through it understand the concept of a “leg- breaking” experience. In training the prophets, we try to familiarize them with it as soon as possible.
It is a process where the Lord continually tries to bring a certain area to death in you.
• The Leg-Breaking Experience • However as you continue to push through on your own and try to do things your own way, you end up like these two poor fellows: • John 19:32 Then the soldiers came, and broke the legs of the first, and of the other one who was crucified with him.
• You will note that Jesus legs were not broken. He knew when to yield and He gave up His spirit willingly.
If you dream that your legs are being broken, it means that the Lord is going to bring your will to complete death • The pressure will come from circumstances and the world, just as the Roman soldiers were the olds to break the legs of the thieves.
• Lame Legs • To be lame means that your will has been taken away from you. You have given up on life and you do not try to push forward any longer. This is quite negative and is a very good picture of someone who has fallen into depression.
• Proverbs 26:7 The legs of the lame are of no use: so [is] a parable in the mouth of fools.
• Jesus took time during His ministry to heal the lame and is still doing it today. No matter how weak you feel or how much has been taken from you, the Lord is here to restore you to full strength!

The arrival of a letter in your dream represents a realization, usually about someone else, or news about yourself. Your reaction to the letter is important. Did you feel anxious, resigned or happy? How you opened the letter is also significant. Did you open it eagerly or did you put it aside unwilling to open it? Whenever a letter appears in your dream, your dreaming mind is telling you that something needs your attention in waking life. Dreaming about receiving letters, just as in daily life, usually represents receiving news, information or messages from someone specific, from your unconscious or from the world at large. You may be coming into greater awareness about some aspect of your life or yourself.
If your dream letters remain unopened, this may represent missed opportunities.
If the letter is black around the edges, this may refer to your feelings about death.
If the letter is from a particular person, this suggests specific feelings or thoughts concerning the person the letter is from.
If you get to read the letter in your dream, try to see if the text has any bearing on your waking life.
If the letter came from abroad, you may be thinking of traveling or are thinking of someone who lives abroad. To dream of writing a letter may tell you of the need to communicate information to someone; a dream of writing several letters may tell you that there are many people you wish to make contact with.
If you dream of sending a letter, this may be a prompt to contact the person to whom you are posting the letter or to impart information to them.
Incomprehensible or unintelligible letters may suggest frustration at being unable to solve some problem. A letter that turns out to be a blank page is a clear sign that you should stop waiting for other people to take the initiative and take the initiative yourself. An anonymous letter can be a message from your unconscious that you need to slow down and reflect on your actions in waking life. While handwriting in a dream letter can reveal personal feelings or communications, a typewritten or word-processed communication implies a more impersonal communication.
Dreams of sending a telegram may occur during times of stagnation or routine in your professional life and may serve as an urgent stimulus to change.

One amazing aspect of dreaming is that it can introduce you to ancient mythological figures of whom you thought you knew nothing. Jung put this well when he said that The great ones of the past have not died, as we think; they have merely changed their names.’ Our dreams may also relate to modern legends, such as those from the Star Wars or Superman films or from the Harry Potter books. Our distant ancestors lived with the dangers and uncertainties of an existence that drove them to seek comfort in beliefs that reached far beyond the bounds of reason. They lived in a world where the magical and mythological was accepted without question. Despite the efforts of established religion and science to impose their own belief systems, these ancient beliefs in gods, spirits and superheroes continue to haunt, fascinate and enchant us with the mysterious images that seep into our sleeping world.
The myths of the ancient Greeks and Romans survive because the human characteristics they represent are universal: love, lust, anger, fear, greed and so on. Such human characteristics are the basic stuff of the stories the ancients dreamed up, and, according to Jungians, these myths lie deep in our unconscious. The personalities of myth may only be recognized by those who study them but, by recognizing their characteristics and studying them, you can learn a lot about yourself. Any character that appears prominently in your dream will be worth measuring against the mythological figure it closely resembles.
The following are some of the most well-known myths and legends, but the list is by no means comprehensive.... The Element Encyclopedia

1- Any dream which contains ‘natives’ that is. people from another culture and possibly with a tribal system is making us aware of a very simple structure to life. Our natural feelings can come to the fore in a way that expresses our wilder, rather less civilised selves.
2- Within man, however civilised he may be, there is a part which holds to a basic simplicity. Native culture is perhaps in some ways more free and less restricted than Western culture. It therefore allows for not only an easier expression of emotions on a personal level, but also a structured management of power both in a tribal and spiritual sense.
It is understood, for instance, that only those who have been trained can become witch-doctors and can deal with the spirits. Everyone is aware of his or her task.

Said to be the cup from which Jesus drank at the Last Supper and which caught his blood at the Crucifixion, the Holy Grail is a symbol of spiritual perfection. Of all the knights of King Arthur’s Round Table, only Sir Galahad is pure enough to look into it. Sir Lancelot is unable to, because he is bound by earthly desire for Arthur’s queen Guinevere, the temptress. Alternatively, the Holy Grail in dreams may refer to the theory popularized by Dan Brown in The Da Vinci Code that the Grail is not a cup but a feminine principle or archetype embodied by Mary Magdalene, who allegedly married Christ. Typically, however, to dream of the Holy Grail represents something miraculous that allows you to move forward and reach your full potential.

Cleansing and innocence, attraction, and openness. Symbol of virginity and innocence.
A desire to go through life undefiled.
The color white in a dream points to purity—the dreamer is either living a pure life or is longing for it. One is seeking cleansing, and probably is already cleansed in a certain sense, simply by having a dream about the color white. But it could also suggest exaggerated cleanliness, an addiction to washing and cleaning, etc.
On the other hand, white can also be an expression of fear, such as the white whale in Moby Dick and the great white shark. Here the reference is to a blinding white color. Ghosts, like those appearing as mice during delusional episodes (delirium tremens), are always white.
The archetype of the wise man is usually clad in white (the guru, and also the physician). White is also the fundamental symbol for the animus; it addresses the male intellect and also male aggression (when white is experienced as blinding and gleaming).
The union of Red and white is that of contradiction: it is the symbol of the mystical marriage and Tantric sexuality (white semen and red menstrual blood).

You should try to live more intensely.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
Purity and wholeness are represented by white, as this is the unification of all the colors of light that are visible to the human eye. For some, white is the color of highest spirituality. For others, it connects to the perfection that arises out of the absence of contamination, as in virginity and chastity. An object that appears white reflects the light outward, absorbing none of the individual colors of the spectrum.
It is this concept of reflecting the light that shines onto you back out into the world that embodies the high consciousness associated with the color white.
White is often regarded as the color of purity, truth, goodness and hope, perhaps best represented by the virginal bride. Within a Western context, seeing this color in your dreams may therefore be a message from your subconscious urging you to discover the truth of a situation, or to find your own truth. It is also the color of completeness and innocence. Questions to ask yourself if white appears in your dream: is your dream encouraging you to see the truth or could your dream be hinting at a fresh start to some aspect of your life?
If white appeared in your dream in connection with someone you know, your dream may have reflected your faith in that person’s goodness, or perhaps you feel that in some respects this person can show you a better way. In addition, whilst black or darkness obscures surroundings, white or brightness illuminates them, which is why it can denote transparency and truth.
If you dreamed of being bathed in white light, your unconscious may have been indicating a sudden burst of self-knowledge that will enable you to put the past behind you and make a fresh start in the world. If, however, the feeling in your dream that featured white was one of sadness or frustration, could the suggestion have been that you are tired of your colorless waking life and long for more excitement and color?
A white sky may be wishful thinking for a purer, simpler life, a white room may symbolize a state of calm or a sense of peace, whilst white trees could be connected to a deep-rooted wish to make a fresh start and end a difficult personal conflict. A white book may be a symbol of insight and knowledge, and a white hand the beginning of a new friendship.
