Penguin Dream Meaning

Have you ever seen the film March of the Penguins? It was only the other day I had a dream about a penguin and I remembered watching this film, and how in AWE I was after it finished -- well, let’s face it there is nothing quite like a penguin -- with its dark coloring and distinctive waddle. Just watching them on TV can give a clue to why you had this dream.

So, your question here is: what do Penguins represent when they appear in our dreams? Could it simply be wishful thinking that one day we too will wear such an elegant outfit, or is there something deeper lying within? Let me guide you, and let’s take an icy dip into what meanings penguins hold for us in dreams!

Dreaming of a penguin may represent many things in your life, such as adaptability, loyalty and even protection. Penguins are known to be highly adaptable creatures that can survive in harsh climates like Antarctica. Their loyalty towards partners and families is legendary; perhaps seeing one in your dream indicates you should adjust to a new situation or remain loyal to those close to you. 

They’re are around 18 different types of penguins and they all are unique in their own way. I’m sure you have seen the documentary where all the penguins are huddled together, this is because they share warmth and energy between the breeding season, the more technical term is “social thermoregulation.” Spiritually, seeing penguins huddled (or massive groups of them) can indicate that it is time to focus on yourself and take care of you. They “huddle” and “cuddle” together or they will die, there is a deeper meaning to your dream at play.

What does it mean to dream of seeing penguins?

Dreaming about penguins may have involved seeing them standing amidst an icy landscape. Or maybe you were watching them slide down snow-covered hills or swim in cold waters. Dreaming about penguins may seem totally random at first glance. As I touched on above, Penguins have a spiritual dimension, they are bound together by loyalty, familial bonds and community. To survive in their harsh natural environment, these birds would do anything to safeguard those closest to them - even sacrifice themselves if necessary. Dreaming of penguins could be a sign to pay more attention to your relationships and the importance of working together with those around you. Let me ask you some question: Are you being loyal and taking care of those in your care? Dreaming of penguins could serve as a reminder to appreciate those in your life who provide support and love.

There is opportunity open to you and a feeling of being unprepared to see penguins in the Southern Hemisphere. Penguins are associated with ambition and being prepared if you kept one as a pet.

Seeing emperor penguins (the ones that have the yellow on their breast) seeing these types of penguin are associated with ensuring that you don’t have any tension in waking life. It could mean you have been avoiding someone. Little blue penguins are associated with ambitions and creating a healthy tension to achieve ambitions. Finally, Giant penguins are related to your inner emotional power, in that you need to be more “emotional.” You must understand the source of your emotions if you have had this dream that the penguin was enormous. 

What is the biblical meaning of penguins in dreams?

I find the bible a good reference as to what dreams can mean for us. Dreaming of penguins may seem like an unlikely occurrence, but the Bible states that dreams contain deep spiritual messages. Joel 2:28 states, "And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions." Thus, my belief is that seemingly random dreams like seeing penguins can have profound significance if taken seriously; Matthew 7:7 states "Ask and it shall be given you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." So if you've been dreaming about penguins, maybe it's time to dig deeper and ask for guidance from spirit. We all need guidance but also note the black and white color it could represent “polar opposites” that you are thinking of changing your life.

I always find babies (not matter what kind) appear in dreams when we have a new start coming.
