The East in spiritual terms has from ancient time suggested the spring, a time for hope and youth. The archangel for the East is Raphael, Healer of the world. We may be looking towards new life or a new beginning. The magical element associated with the East is Air and the colour is yellow; these significances often reveal themselves in dreams. Specifically dreaming of the East indicates we are looking at the mysterious and religious side of ourselves. We link with instinctual belief as opposed to logical reasoning.
