Being unreachable, clouds symbolized the potency of the Ultimate. Similar to smoke, they were previously considered to be the vehicle for Divine Power. They retain this significance in dreams today. We may have a hidden depression, shown by dark clouds, which can be dealt with only after it has been given form in a dream. White clouds suggest contentment, but may also suggest a transitory awareness of an idea. Dreaming of clouds can have two meanings, depending on the other circumstances in the dream. It can either indicate uplifting or religious feelings, or can show that we are feeling overshadowed by someone or something. It can also warn of the possibility of difficulty or danger to come.
