Dream Interpretation BlueBird

When looking for Dream Interpretation Bluebird, you need to consider a number of things: what does a bird symbolize and what does blue mean? Also, what’s the bird doing? Is it flying, sitting, singing? How do you feel about it? Happy, scared, loving? Most bluebird dreams are very positive.

I just had a dream with a bluebird in it so I looked for Dream Interpretation Bluebird online.

Happily, I found this great dream dictionary site called Dream Moods: What’s in YOUR dream?In fact, they had a whole section on birds, including flying, chirping, dead, dying, eggs, hatching, and nesting. Since the bird in my dream flew to me and landed on my left shoulder, I was especially interested in the section on birds flying:


To dream of chirping and/or flying birds, represents joy, harmony, ecstasy, balance, and love. It denotes a sunny outlook in life. You are experiencing spiritual freedom and psychological liberation. It is almost as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders.

Dream Moods: Bird

Interestingly, the bird in my dream landed on my shoulder. Does that mean I have a new weight on my shoulder? Actually, birds are very light – hardly a weight at all. And, when I was young, we always had parakeets for pets, and I dearly loved them.

It was also a blue bird. So, what does Dream Moods have to say about Dream Interpretation Bluebird?


To see a bluebird in your dream, symbolizes both happiness and sadness. It is also an indication of purification and resolution to the opposing conflicts/paradoxes in your life.



And, not surprisingly, since I grew up with pet parakeets, my dream bird was a parakeet:


To see a parakeet in your dream, suggests that a message is being conveyed to you. Perhaps, a message from your unconscious is being transmitted to your conscious mind.

Dream Moods: Parakeet

To my delight, the bluebird denotes such associations with happiness, that I discovered many “Bluebird of Happiness” poems online. Here’s one I especially liked, by Jan Peerce.

Well, I must admit I am working on resolving inner conflicts and I do feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders recently. It sounds as if my research into Dream Interpretation Bluebird brought forth some good results.

How to Learn More About What Your Dreams Mean

I’ve found that, in helping people to understand their dreams, the hardest part of interpreting your dreams is to see how certain dream symbols apply to a person’s actual life. Therefore, even though you’ve read the interpretation of the bluebird symbol in your dreams above, you may still need some help to understand what your particular bluebird dream means to you. Yes, it’s true, you can find many suggested dream meanings online. But, it gets confusing. The question is: What does this mean to me? What can I do about it? Often, there are so many suggestions you don’t know which one applies to you.

Therefore, I’ve put together an quick, easy, three-step checklist that will help you to get that “ah hah,” of understanding of what your particular dream about a past love interest means specifically to you. The checklist also shows you how you can use the information from your dream to improve your life. Here’s the link to getting the checklist on the home page of this website. Click here to register for your checklist.

Once you’re on my list, I can send you an occasional email letting you know when I have my every-once-in-awhile live online dream sessions. Happy Dreaming!!!

Carol Chapman’s study of dreams began at the age of 17 when she dreamed of a past life that explained why she and her mother hated each other so much. While sleeping, at the end of the dream, she heard “The Voice” say, “Isn’t it about time you forgave her?” As a result, she also began her spiritual journey.

A great book on dream interpretation. If you’re interested in learning how to access inner guidance through interpreting your dreams, I highly recommend Awaken Your Inner Voice by Nancy C. Chrisbaum and Ellen L. Selover. In this book, you will not only learn how to work with your dreams but will also discover such methods as meditation, energy healing, and past-life recall. I especially like it, because it is full of stories of people using these techniques and their results.

Ok… so I had a weird dream last night! At some point in the dream my daughter and I were in some sort of laboratory where there were alot of animals, she found a pretty bluebird and took it home with us. Later in the dream, I open the freezer and the bird was in there. He was still alive and lively, but covered in ice. I took him out and started petting him, trying to warm him up and get the ice off. He was so friendly and running his head on me. I asked my daughter where in the lab she had found him, because this bird was so friendly i was sure he must belong to someone else.

So last night I had a dream about a bluebird. In the dream my mom called me into her bedroom because there was a blue bird that had gotten in. The bird was sitting up high so I climbed up to get it. The bird didn’t resist me. It let me pick it up, carry it outside and set it free. That’s the whole dream.

The next day (today) my mom was in bed with a migraine. She called for me and I came. On the back deck was a flock of bluebirds. They were landing on the windows, looking inside and drinking the melted snow on the deck.

Makes you wonder 🙂

I am writing because my dream was very strange.
1st thing, idreamed talking in English , and I am Italian.
In my dream I was helping this old guy to his farm, and on the top of this long long stairs , I saw this little young blue ring neck calling my attention.
I have asked to this old guy if I could keep this little bird with me and he said yes.
Once I went up stairs , I could not see this bird anywhere.
I have passed my whole dream looking for it.
I remeber that was full of little chick and colourfully parrots, but not!
I was looking for it.
In a moment I have finally found this young bird with super beautiful eyes watching me with other 3 little chics.
He was in love for me like I was for him.
I took him and ran back home giving him a beautiful environment.
In a moment this old guy came toy house bling me that I have stolen this young kid and the little 3 chicks.
We had an argument but i have left those 3 chics in the bag where I have found him.
He said that he was not ready to let him go and he wanted him back.
The dream finished like that!

I had a dream about a blue bird yesterday night and it was just flying around and it let me catch it to help it because it was hurt. And that’s all I really remember

Melissa Greico - August 23, 2019

Hi Carol, last night I dreamed I was in a very ugly, broken down house. My two month daughter was with me (sitting in her car seat. We walked into a very cruddy bedroom. The conditions were deplorable. Inside there were puppies and poop all over the floor. Two blue birds appeared. One bird pooped on my daughter . They were both sitting on the floor while I had the tiniest puppy in my ha nd. One bird flew off in the room some where and I tried to find it but I stepped on some dog poop. I then realized I dropped my daughter’s receiving blanket on the floor and was pretty disgusted by it falling on the floor. Suddenly my estranged uncle appeared and I handed him the blanket and asked him to wash it. I woke up.

This page called to me while in the process of trying to interpret a recurring dream I have been having. I hope you can help shine some light on my confusion… I recently got out of a really terrible and emotionally, mentally abusive relationship and landed back at my mother’s house. Which would probably be super healing/comforting if my mom and I had a healthy relationship… we don’t.
My dream takes place in her back yard and I am outside in the sunshine and every time, i am visited by an array of various blue birds; blue jays- very majestic and some that almost seem cartoon in comparison/contrast to the larger blue jays. Every dream brings more birds. Once there were only a few. And every dream leading up to my most recent- more join. I am surrounded by them and many perch on my arms and head. It feels very comforting. The wild part is that every time i have this dream, i am visited by an actual blue jay outside the window where I water my plants or out back where I meditate. What can this possibly be telling me? I never believed in coincidences. Hoping to hear back, thank you for helping us discover deep subconscious aspects of ourselves- your gift is wonderful!

Sydney - July 21, 2019

I didn’t really have a great dream last night involving a small round blue bird. From what I remember, the bluebird was being chased by a giant centipede to be eaten, the centipede caught up and I had a question within myself if I should try to save the bird or let nature happen. I chose to save the bird because I couldn’t let that happen in front of me and killed the centipede by crushing it under a leg of a chair. I think I held the bluebird in my hand afterwards, though I’m not sure if they survived. I remember both the blue bird dying and I thought it was because I wasn’t careful enough with the chair, and also the bluebird living. I think both things happened in my dream but I can’t be too sure. It’s kind of a paradox, I think I felt so sad about killing the bird that my dream was changed a bit at the end so the bird survived? I’m not sure. There was more that happened after that part of the dream but it doesn’t have to do with the blue bird, just the centipede. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions about what this dream meant! Thank you.

Debbie - May 16, 2019

My dream was that a bluebird kept wanting to nestle in my neck/hair area. I felt that it loved me and wanted to just be near me.

    Carol Chapman - July 8, 2019

    Hi Debbie, great dream for showing the inherent nature of a bluebird symbol, which often has to do with love and happiness. With it nestled in your neck/hair area, it would mean to me that I had truthful (the blue bird), loving (your feelings in the dream), thoughts (your hair–hair often symbolize thoughts in dreams, since it comes out of your head). Anyway, it’d be a really happy, hopeful dream if I had it. Thanks for posting it.

I saw bluebirds hatching in my dream and a Robin mother. This is not the first time I have saw bluebirds

Emilio Leiva - March 23, 2019

I had a dream where in my room there was a trapped bird. This bird was small with bright blue colors but under its wings the feather was yellow. I saw itbperched on my bedroom door and slowly flapped its wings and then it stopped. After a while the bird flew to the wall slowly in a way i could clearly see how it looks. The bird didnt chirp or do anything else. Before sleeping i was thinking about this girl I really liked. I have trouble finding a girl i really luked because it usually ends up emotianlly bad even when i havent dated them. I never had a girlfriend and that one girl i really liked recently started dating one of my friends i detest for being shy and dumb

    Carol Chapman - June 15, 2019

    Hi Emilio, This is a great dream, because it really expresses your feelings of missing opportunities–that the bird is trapped and can’t fly out of the room. Likely, the yellow under it wings represents your belief that you have been “yellow” or afraid or cowardly. However, it could also be that be that, since many varieties of male bluebirds have bright yellow or orange feathers on their breasts and under their wings, your bluebird is specifically a male bluebird. The female has duller coloring–better camouflaged. If your subconscious chose the bluebird with yellow under the wings to denote that it’s definitely a male bird, then it emphasizes that this dream is about your feelings and actions about your role in male/female relationships.

    In any case, because your subconscious chose a beautiful bright blue-colored bird–it is a wonderful hopeful symbol! It can still fly, you just need to let it out of your room to take advantage of the opportunities that come your way. It’s also blue, which often means “true blue” or the truth. Birds also remind us of our spiritual nature, in other words, you can always draw on our spiritual beliefs and practices to gain courage. So, if it were my dream, it’d be telling me that this is the truth: in spite of my fears and my shyness, I do have the ability to reach heights (flying), and to find joy.

    There will be another girl that you like. Remember your lovely male bluebird when you’re feeling shy about approaching her.

I dreamt last night of a bluebird. It was dancing and chirping in an old or ancient stone font at the edge of a beach in Hawaii. Someone there said to go look at it, but I assumed it would fly off before I could get close enough to see it, so I continued what I was doing. But the someone insisted it was still there, so I turned and walked over and had a good, long look. The bird seemed to be chirping and dancing for me! As if saying, “I’m here, I’m here, I’m here!” I marveled at its fragile beauty, it’s soft blue with pale red and white feathers, and told the others
there (there was a child, too….me?) that it was my Grandma Ellen’s (long deceased) favorite bird.
I’m 56 and have been feeling very sad, empty, and alone in life. I have a wonderful career teaching, but I divorced 17 years ago after a 17 year marriage and two wonderful children. I had an abusive partner for 12 years and although proud of getting out of the relationship finally, I’m angry that it took 12 years … proud of myself, but disappointed in myself for not having been stronger. Now I have an ambiguous dating relationship. My husband never remarried, and we still see each other with are grown kids. At the bottom of my heart and back of my mind, I want to go “home” and reunite with him. But when in actual company, I feel a fear of being smothered and claustrophobic and stuck.
I’m trying to figure this out, because I want the remaining years I have to be joyful!!

    Carol Chapman - September 30, 2018

    Hi Karen, thanks for writing, and thanks especially for including information about your life at this time. To begin, in my opinion, because you’re dreaming about such a lovely bird, your dream is showing you there is happiness to be found in your life (in spite of your present life circumstances and your feelings of sadness, emptiness, and aloneness).

    Your dream bird turns up in an old or ancient place, which could emphasize that your problems are in the past.

    In the dream, you think the bird will fly off (your happiness will fly away), but, not only does the bird not fly away, but you realize that the bird is dancing and chirping just for you. In other words, the happiness is there for you. This is emphasized in your description of the dream when you say that it’s as if the bird is saying, “I’m here, I’m here, I’m here!” It’s almost as if you don’t believe happiness would be there for you, but the dream emphasizes, “Look for it. It’s there, right now.”

    Plus, the bird is at a beach in Hawaii. I assume this location symbolizes joy for you. It sure does for me. In any case, a dream symbol like this, coupled with the bluebird, emphasizes the happiness available to you. It could also mean that you’ll find happiness in Hawaii at the beach. However, dreams are usually symbolic. Nonetheless, since it appeared in your dream, the beach in Hawaii may also point to something real.

    I believe your Grandma Ellen is a clue to finding your happiness, since, in the dream, you say that the bluebird was her favorite bird. What was she like? Would some of her qualities help you to find happiness in your present circumstances? Did she have a particular saying or a certain view of life that would help you now?

    Do you believe in an afterlife? Are you willing to consider that your dream is telling you that your Grandma Ellen is helping you out from the Beyond?

    By the way, I believe our dreams help us to make a better life for us. Therefore, perhaps, based on the message in your dream, you don’t need to work so hard to “figure out” how to make your remaining years more joyful. I know what it’s like to look back at your life and see the mistakes you’ve made. However, maybe, if you acknowledge the happiness there is in your life day-by-day, as time goes by, opportunities for more joy will come along. Your dream seems to be saying it’s available for you and easier than you think. It’s a lovely dream and full of hope. If it were my dream, I’d feel encouraged.

Marcie - August 18, 2016

I had a dream about two blue birds (actual bluebirds – not a blue jay or robin) landed on the side of my house, outside my window and almost within my reach. In my dream they meant happiness and I remember telling a woman with me that the message was for her and believing it meant babies for her. Minutes later she was killed.

After waking, I researched and thought it meant something different. I have this feeling that maybe the happiness they represent to me is just outside of my reach and the fact that there were two meant for me and my young male friend (only friend). He has been seriuosly struggling and his health and financial conditions have drained me to the point of near desperation. I’m hoping that the birds are telling me this is the end of this trying time and that happiness is now within our reach. Please tell me if you believe something different.

I really don’t understand about the woman dying. Somehow I’m thinking now that she represented me somehow. If so, does that mean I have lost all hope?

    carolchapman - August 21, 2016

    Hi Marcie, Thanks for posting your dream. Thanks, especially, for describing the difficult situation in your waking life and the research you’ve been doing to understand this dream. It makes sense to me that the bluebirds represent happiness. There are so many Bluebird of Happiness poems online. Bluebirds must be a universal symbol of happiness to many. However, the bluebirds, and the happiness they symbolize, are not in the room with you, but, as you say, they are out of reach. Nonetheless, they are close. Now, for the most challenging part of your dream: that this woman with you is killed. I assume this woman is not someone you know. Therefore, she likely symbolizes an unknown part of you, and you did say, that it feels as if she represents you. So, let’s look at this symbol of being killed in a dream. On the one hand, you are in a situation that, as I understand it, feels so intolerably desperate that, on a psychological level, it could feel as if, as the saying goes, “It’s killing me.” And, since it sounds as if you’re under so much stress, on a physical level, the situation could potentially affect your health. However, your dream does contain a message of hope. In your dream, you say the message is for the woman and it means babies for her. Babies are usually a wonderfully uplifting symbol in a dream. They often mean a new beginning. Plus, you said the plural babies, just as there were two bluebirds. Lots of potential hope and happiness for you. However, babies need a lot of care. Could it mean the dream is telling you to take really good care of yourself, because this unknown/undiscovered potential within you needs lots of nurturing? Anyway, that’s what it would mean to me if it was my dream.
