  1. I dreamt in the early hours this morning about 2 penguins in my house. I had just gone back to sleep and I thought this was real. I’m thinking What!? Are these two cute penguins doing in my house? I opened the back sliding door to let them out and out they went. I was thinking how beautiful they where but I was a also little intimidated . They looked quite powerful. Then the dream morphed into them being back in my house . I think there were 3 this time and one was a little annoyed at being made to go outside and sort of ran back in between my legs. Then I looked out side and and saw dead birds a dead bat and a dead wombat type marsupial holding its baby. Because Ive recently baited rats in my ceiling I thought oh no I’ve also poisoned them. Currently the Covid virus has struck and I started dating so I think all these things have some relevance?

  2. So I recently had what felt like a very spiritual and connected dream about penguins. I began volunteering as an overnight at a zoo. I stayed within the enclosure all night essentially to clean up and make sure everything is put together. At first I only volunteered like every other week and was told I’d probably never see them. After awhile one of them finally came out and I was pushed to come back more often. I began volunteering nearly every night and all the penguins began to come out to be around me as I grew more connected with them. It came to light that they were hiding in the beginning simply because no one ever stays anyways, and so I promised I wouldn’t just abandon them.

  3. This is so cool, my dream goes like this: I was in like an island or land where the penguins are with some people from school, the environment wasn’t that good for the penguins though so one expert told us that on top of a mountain was the most beautiful place for penguins like a paradise but we and the penguins would have to escalate up there and it was so plain and difficult but I kept encouraging everyone to go some of the penguins fell down but they didn’t die they kept on trying and there was the little guy who felt like giving up so I was like nope you’re coming I’m taking you with me that was my mission and as hard as it was I was able to bring him up and when we got there, the most beautiful beach was waiting for us everyone and all the penguins were so happy and I felt so happy as well that I was able to show this little guy that we could do it and he went swimming for the rest of the day, the penguins found their new and amazing home and my heart found joy. The coolest thing is that I’m going through some emotional situations that relate so much to the dream and I recently made the decision to trust myself and not settle for anything less and so I went for it now I have to be patient for the outcome which I’m sure is what my heart wants and needs.

  4. I had a brilliant dream about a penguin in a bath of water, he was being kept as a pet by an ex boyfriend of mine. It was a happy dream.
    The meaning has resonated with me as one of my ‘friends’ was rude to me recently, it upset me very much as it’s not the first time they have been ‘strange’ with me (not sure how I deal with it, probably ignore it, as they are friends with other friends and I don’t want to lose them too) & possibly starting a new job (so I need to concentrate on that rather than someone’s negativity)
    All I can say is thank you for putting it all into perspective.

  5. I recently had a nightmare about penguins (which happened before, but thats a different story) So heres my dream: I was walking to my kitchen, passing my living room (which has roof windows for some reason) and I see a big white and black bird carrying another bird passing my window (which I thought was strange since I live in a area that doesnt have any wild penguins) Then that penguin comes back and starts opening my window I tried screaming to alert my family members but nothing came out. The penguins then drops down and thats when I wake up. I’m not sure what these penguin nightmares mean, but I want them to stop.

    Hi i was wondering what my penguin dream meant.
    There were 2 big ones with the fans on there heads.
    A lady i garden for was giving them money and a note to take to the shop. Where they would collect her shopping. In her garden was a massive crane and a big hole. I was happy as it meant i didnt have to work. Pluscthe penguins amused me shopping. Very intelligent. I had let this lady down 3 times due to my illness. Also i fell it maybe time to move on as i am becoming unreliable . Many thanks claire
