Snow Dream Meaning And Dreaming Of Snow

Dreaming of snow is mysterious and magical. Winter and snow are a time of hibernation in relation to our inner being. Snow dreams are a symbol of spiritual awakening and inner awareness. It is the season of winter when the spirit gradually releases itself from daily, earthly concerns. Snow dreams allow us to forget the rules of space and time, allowing us to travel to a distant faraway land - even if we have never been there physically. The dream can be connected to our emotions due to the frozen crystalline water that is made within the snow life cycle. 

Spiritual dream meaning of snow

The way you view the snow will be affected by where you live. It is important to recognize that our psyches also go through seasonal cycles throughout our lives. These cycles could be of rest, growth, death, and/or growth. If the winter is significant in your dream, think about whether it reflects an inner cycle that you are currently going through or need to enter. Snow is naturally translucent in color, this indicates that light does not pass through it, but is reflected. Snow is made up of ice crystals that are almost suspended in the environment, within the clouds. From a spiritual perspective dreaming of snow is about how you reflect on events in your life. Wavelengths bring color to objects and these are opaque and semi-opaque in nature. The key element of this dream is to remember why you are really here and what is it that you want.

My advice from this dream

I have some advice from a general snow dream. Today you have a choice to do the best that is required, take care of yourself, talk to your guides, medicate and produce. The snow has appeared as this is a time of spiritual reflection. Bear in mind that those around you who naturally fear change may challenge you. This could be due to a number of reasons. If you are able you can strengthen your mind. You have a choice to learn, this is your choice and the snow featured in your dream indicates that it is your personal responsibility to plant and care for your garden of life. 

Is the dream of snow good or bad?

If you are “snowed under”, it means that you are at a loss in your current circumstances. When the words of snow are uttered, I automatically cross-check a distant memory of seeing snow. It is really a perceptual spiritual experience in dreams. Dreaming of snow is associated with cleanness, clarity, and a possible fresh start ahead. A stage in your life is over and there is a new beginning coming. Since snow is water in solid form, it symbolizes something in life will take shape and be more concrete going forward.

The water connection makes the snow appear in dreams in association with our inner feelings, maybe because you have been suppressing your thoughts lately and they remained frozen, which means it is time to reanimate them. Spiritually, the snow represents your beauty and serenity, as well as the melting of your problems. There is different types of snow such as hard snow, soft snow, powder snow (which is light and generally fluffy), and of course artificial snow.
