Whales can be found in all the oceans of the world. They vary in size from eleven feet to more than one hundred feet in length. In Chinese mythology, a giant whale with the hands and feet of a man was said to rule the oceans. The famous story of Jonah being swallowed by a whale is found in both the Bible and the Koran. Dreaming of a whale is a sign that you have successfully left the past behind and are revealing your true inner self, possibly for the first time since you were a young child. The whale symbolizes promise, hope, and a strong desire to make the future as good as you possibly can. You have the potential, power, and ability to succeed at anything you attempt.
