In mythology, the breath is a divine gift. It keeps you connected to life until you ‘take your last breath’ and can symbolize your spiritual connection to life. A dream that focuses on breathing can suggest the need to ‘get a breath of fresh air’ or step away from the situation to see it objectively. Colored breath will be associated with the emotion that the color suggests, as a way of taking it in and allowing it to sustain you. See Colors.
