The dreams with wolves represent the most primitive impulses of the human being, and also his aggressiveness; that is, those moments in which that person shows his most violent side, as well as the attitude he is having in front of his worries lately.
In today’s text, we will find out what different dreams about wolves mean.
White wolf in Dream – Meaning
You may not know it, but in the dream world, dreaming of a dog is very different from doing it with a wolf. Dreaming about wolves indicates that you are being very severe with those around you, or that you don’t appreciate all the sacrifices they make for you.
Therefore, in a way you are being cruel. And this cruelty intensifies when a black or gray wolf appears in the dream.
Black is a color that symbolizes the intensity of your problems, which means that you will soon have to face significant threats against you. And this meaning is more intense when the wolf bites you or attacks you, especially if at first it looked like an affectionate animal and suddenly it bites you.
Have you dreamed of sea lions? Denote that you have a great capacity to adapt to the unexpected turns that occur in your life. Do not cower for anything, you face any situation and this will have a positive impact on your self-esteem.
In this way, the wolf totem chooses to be the spiritual guide of those who deeply understand life and their way of being. In this way, the wolf represents faith and deep understanding.
Moreover, whoever has the wolf totem will probably feel identified with the fact that the wolf avoids violence at all costs, preferring to growl or adopt some haughty posture to show his dominance.
Similarly, the wolf is a very misunderstood animal that they have labeled as evil and cold-blooded, when in reality they are highly friendly and social.
The wolves symbolize endurance and physical endurance, since these animals can run up to 35 km a day to hunt some prey.
In addition, when we see in dreams or visions through meditation the howling wolf means that we need more freedom.
On the other hand, the wolf, despite what is mistakenly believed, has a great sense of family and unity, but without losing its own individuality, something that the wolf as a totem tries to remember with his appearance. In this way, the wolf helps to find the balance between responsibilities (for example, family members) and our own personal identity.
On the other hand, the wolf is a great communicator, since it is expressed with touch, eye contact, body movements and its various vocal expressions.
Thus, who has the wolf as a spiritual animal, is usually an excellent talker, narrator and writer.
When we talk about totemic medicine, we refer to the teachings that that particular spiritual animal brings us, until we learn them, we incorporate them into our day-to-day lives and, probably, our animal totem can disappear temporarily or be less present in our lives.
