To dream in black and white suggests that you need to be more objective in formulating your decisions. You may be a little too unyielding in your thought processes, and thus need to find some sort of balance between two opposing views. Consider the views and opinions of others. Alternatively, black and white dreams may be a sign of depression or sadness. You may feel that there is not enough excitement in your life.
It is a quite commonly held belief that we only dream in black and white, but many people are able to identify tones of color in their dreams.
If this is the case, why is it believed that we only dream in black and white? It may be because dreams that appear to be black and white only appear so because the color is not relevant. This doesn’t necessarily mean, however, that such dreams are in black and white. Black and white is a function of television when the color information is removed, but the same is not true of the mind. For example, grass might not be green in a dream, but it’s not gray as it is in a black and white movie; the color simply is not relevant and your unconscious isn’t highlighting it. This non-relevance fools the conscious mind on waking up into concluding that, by implication, the dream must have been in black and white.
A black funeral may suggest difficulties in, or the need for a new approach to, a relationship or work issue, as the current approach is doomed. Or are you grieving for a phase or aspect of your life that has recently come to an end? As stated above, black often represents the death of new ideas, so could your dream be telling you to prepare for the transition? Black animals that appear in dreams are usually associated with notions of temptation, unconscious drives and urges, whilst black clothes and underwear are a symbol of hidden or unconscious feelings, or sexuality. A night dream scene shrouded in darkness may relate to a certain lack of direction in your waking life. According to traditional symbolism, black is also associated with wickedness, so if you are menaced by a person wearing black in your dream, could the dream be a depiction of your darkest fears. Do you worry that someone is a threat to you or are you your own worst enemy?

Although it might be possible to dream about a major weather disaster before it occurred, it is much more likely that you are dreaming about some kind of emotional turmoil occurring in your waking life. In fact, dreams of tornadoes are often symbolic of ongoing verbal arguments, fighting and emotional tension occurring in a relationship. A tornado is made up of wind moving very fast, just as air comes out of one’s mouth very fast during an argument. With this in mind, the next time one of these ‘tornado’ dreams occur, look at what has just taken place in your waking life. Have you just had an argument with someone? Has someone had an argument with you? Overall, the presence of tornadoes or hurricanes in dream land suggests that you are an extremely emotional person and that either you (or those around you) are prone to emotional outbursts.
Alternatively, you may feel as if you are being swept along by forces beyond your control—perhaps someone’s passion. A hurricane can also represent the power of your own passion, or passionate belief, which picks you up and carries you along.... The Element Encyclopedia

There may be destructive forces brewing in your consciousness that are emerging out of opposing energies. These weather phenomena are incredibly destructive and completely unpredictable in their movement.
The devastation that they leave in their wake is almost unfathomable, but there is also an element of creation present, as their symbolic meaning lies in their formation.
A tornado is the result of two air masses of very different temperatures colliding with each other. Under the right conditions, these two systems meet up with each other and each tries to force the other to submit to their direction of movement. As a result of this conflict, the two form a third energetic system that combines the force of both, creating a tornado. Resistance is at the essence of the interpretation of this image, so when a tornado appears in a dream, look for areas in your life where you may be in resistance. In addition, the chaotic nature of a tornado’s path makes this a perfect expression of waking-life chaos. This dream may be indicating an unconscious reaction to the unpredictable nature of how things are unfolding around you, especially in areas where you are facing direct opposition to your desires....

The color white in a dream points to purity—the dreamer is either living a pure life or is longing for it.

Purity and wholeness are represented by white, as this is the unification of all the colors of light that are visible to the human eye. For some, white is the color of highest spirituality. For others, it connects to the perfection that arises out of the absence of contamination, as in virginity and chastity. An object that appears white reflects the light outward, absorbing none of the individual colors of the spectrum.
It is this concept of reflecting the light that shines onto you back out into the world that embodies the high consciousness associated with the color white.
White is often regarded as the color of purity, truth, goodness and hope, perhaps best represented by the virginal bride. Within a Western context, seeing this color in your dreams may therefore be a message from your subconscious urging you to discover the truth of a situation, or to find your own truth. It is also the color of completeness and innocence. Questions to ask yourself if white appears in your dream: is your dream encouraging you to see the truth or could your dream be hinting at a fresh start to some aspect of your life?
If white appeared in your dream in connection with someone you know, your dream may have reflected your faith in that person’s goodness, or perhaps you feel that in some respects this person can show you a better way. In addition, whilst black or darkness obscures surroundings, white or brightness illuminates them, which is why it can denote transparency and truth.
If you dreamed of being bathed in white light, your unconscious may have been indicating a sudden burst of self-knowledge that will enable you to put the past behind you and make a fresh start in the world. If, however, the feeling in your dream that featured white was one of sadness or frustration, could the suggestion have been that you are tired of your colorless waking life and long for more excitement and color?
A white sky may be wishful thinking for a purer, simpler life, a white room may symbolize a state of calm or a sense of peace, whilst white trees could be connected to a deep-rooted wish to make a fresh start and end a difficult personal conflict. A white book may be a symbol of insight and knowledge, and a white hand the beginning of a new friendship. White food or drink is linked to notions of emotional purity, and if the food or drink is tainted in any way, this may suggest that the dreamer is in need of cleansing in some aspect of their emotional life. However, bear in mind that in many Eastern cultures, white is associated with death and mourning. As an absence of color, white may therefore evoke desolation or the bloodless, lifeless corpse or ghost.

There is a rich history in many aboriginal cultures that is still part of the collective consciousness around the purity of the color white in the realm of animal totems.
