Woman with Grey Eyes

Curious what it means when you have grey eyes?

I’ve always been fascinated by eye color. Recently, I went on a journey to learn more about one of the rarest eye colors in humans: grey.

Today I’m excited to share what I discovered.

Ready to find out what it means when you have grey eyes?

Let’s get started!

What Does it Mean When You Have Grey Eyes?

Recent studies at Edinburg University found that eye color may be linked to brain development. Meaning that having grey eyes may actually reveal a little bit about who you are on the inside.

Incredible, right?

With this idea in mind, I began researching the spiritual significance of grey eyes and what they can tell us about people with such a rare eye color.

Here are 3 possible meanings of having grey eyes:

You Are Mysterious Spirit

Looking into your dark grey eyes feels like walking into a maze. You are mysterious and complex.

It is impossible for others to know exactly what you are thinking or what you are going to do next. You actually prefer it this way.

The mystery that surrounds you seems to attract people to you almost instantly. To them, you are like a puzzle.

People probably can’t quite explain why they are drawn to your steel grey eyes. They are mesmerized by your aura and the vibes that surround you.

When you walk into a room you always seem to hold the attention of those around you. The funny thing is you don’t really like all of this attention. Inside, you are reserved and enjoy your alone time away from large crowds.

You are clearly a conundrum: a difficult problem that cannot be solved.

While you may be willing to be honest and vulnerable around your close group of friends, you still like to keep your secrets close to the vest.

Even when someone thinks they have you figured out, you always have a surprise up your sleeve.

Freedom is Your Favorite Word

Your silver eyes are an instant giveaway that you are a free spirit. You take pride in being an independent thinker.

Freedom is the keyword that describes your career, lifestyle, and even relationship choices.

"You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love." Galatians 5:13 NIV

You enjoy making your own trails, not following a map like everyone else.

But, behind those grey eyes, you are also a hopeless romantic. Balancing the needs of your adventurous soul and your delicate heart has been a tough task.

It is no secret that your choice of partners has been confusing to those around you. People often ask when you will settle down and get serious about finding your soulmate.

If only it were that easy, right?

Those light grey eyes might be your own worst enemy when it comes to love. You find yourself attracted to those with rough edges and a little mysterious like yourself.

When it doesn’t work out, you are always the one that gets hurts the most.

From the outside, your mysterious grey eyes might look like a steel vault that can’t be broken. But you know from past failed relationships that your heart is more sensitive than others realize.

Deep down you struggle with balancing your desire for freedom but also finding a partner that is secure and consistent.

At this point in your life, you are looking for someone who will be there to support you during the ups and downs of the crazy ride you call life.

The good news is, that person may already be in your life, you just don’t realize it yet.

You Are Creative and Spontaneous

If your blue-grey or grey-green eyes didn’t already give it away, it’s obvious that you are a very creative spirit.

You have lots of ideas and you dream about the day when you will finally get to unleash your vision to the world.

When you look around, you see so many problems that could easily be fixed with a little creativity. This is inspiring and sad at the same time.

In the past, you tried to share your passion with the world only to be met with criticism. Or worse, crickets.

But this hasn’t stopped you from trying. A look around your living room will probably reveal a wide range of interests. Such as half-finished projects, musical instruments, or books on a wide range of topics.

You love learning about new things, so you often jump from subject to subject to avoid becoming bored.

Finding a career that allows you to use your creativity has been difficult. When you go to work you feel like you have so much unused potential within you.

Your boss may see you as just another employee, but your grey eyes say it all: You should not be underestimated.

One day your talents will be “discovered” by others and you will finally get the recognition you deserve.
