I truly think that we come into the world with a full totem of animals. Some of them are more outspoken or are closer to us then the others.
For me, the Owl and Hawk are most noticeable, but I also know that that I carry Dolphin, Horse and Hummingbird....
Owls lead my way. They have sacrificed themselves for me, and I honor one that I buried on my east gate.
I wonder about another which is the bear. Here is a dream I had if anyone can tell me what it means:
Im at a zoo with my family, however it appears to be nowhere familiar. I notice that we are walking near the bear dens and my insticts sharpen very
quickly, almost as if I new of an outcome ahead of time. My hands began to shake.
The brown bears walked out into the open from an underground arena of some kind, with their trainers. Their behavior appeared to be as if they were
starving and they were about to perform for food. I noticed the the fence was not so high, maybe 5-8 feet which worried me. So I spoke to my family
about walking away from this exhibit. For some reason we walked straight into the arena where they came from. It was in the ground, cold, dark and
damp, just like a cave.
The dream changed and I was alone in a cave, but I saw a light at the end so I knew where the exit was. Next thing I thought was Oh #, I am on my
period....and I began to have a panic attack. I felt as if I was being hunted, and I was.
Out from nowhere the great bear lept on to me and dug its large teeth into my neck and took me down. I felt the pain, I felt the blood, I felt my
heart beat inside my mouth. I thought of my children being motherless and began to cry. Then suddenly I began to fade, I KNEW I WAS DYING. The despair
left me completely, and blackness surrounded me.
Within an instant I felt something, A ROAR WITHIN! My heart beat came back to life as I heard a shot. I felt powerful and no longer scared. I have
been given a gift. I heard an alien voice say to me "Now follow the path of the BEAR."
The room filled with bright light, and I felt the weight of the bear lift off of me. Medics rushed in to stop the bleeding from my neck. And I noticed
a man in the background with a large rifle. He smiled at me and walked out with the bears body. I watched the limp bear be taken away and felt as if
the bear was inside of me somehow, wild & lost, but finally at home.
I went to feel my neck where it bit into me and there was a tooth that had broken off inside my jugular vein, left there I was told to keep me from
bleeding out. The medics said to never take out the tooth, and to keep it as a reminder of the day I died and was reborn from a bear.
