Dreams Related To Bear

A polar bear and zebra

A very large polar bear and zebra rose from the water, then walked in my backyard side by side. I hid in the shed, peeked through the door, the bear stopped and sniffed. He knew I was there but kept on. I felt scared. I am a female.

While polar bears tend to represent marriage and strong romantic ties, zebras can be associated with friendships and your ability to cooperate effectively with others. Hiding from these animals in your dream vision suggests you are having trouble with your interpersonal relations. For example, you may be having communication issues with your friends or spouse, or you may be finding it difficult to meet the partner of your dreams. In either case, this vision could be considered a warning that if you do not face these challenges head on, you are likely to end up alone and scared. It would be wise to tackle this issue in small steps, ideally with the help of someone you can trust.

Father fighting with a bear

My daughter had a dream she was to her parent's home and a bear came and we ran in the house and tried to lock the door and the door just wouldn't lock.

When her father came out of the woods he fell on the floor and her brother wanted to go get that bear, but her father told them to have patience, because everything would be alright.

Being threatened by a bear and subsequently pursuing this bear in the dream world alludes to a toxic relationship in reality.

Perhaps the advice of her father means that she needs to bide her time before she can gain the freedom she desires. While she could be feeling trapped and limited at the moment, she can use this time to grow and mature in order to have a fighting chance at victory when she decides to fight back or at least assert herself.

Getting chairs from old workplace and a black bear

I dreamed I was at old workplace, saw a couple old bosses I had. The boss said I could have 2 old chairs there, so I drove around to get them. As I was leaving I saw my sister and brother outside talking. I left, as I was driving I remembered I forgot the chairs. So I was doing a U-turn, a big black bear was crossing the highway a few feet from me making the U-turn. I continued, turned in to where I needed to be.

All these symbols from your dream vision signify either high levels or stress due to the everyday workload or being overwhelmed with some local events, like political conflicts, public issues or social obligations. Looking for chairs is a sign of seeking much needed rest and relaxation while a black bear blocking your way is an allegory for all the things you have committed yourself to standing in your way of living a more relaxed and worry-free lifestyle, even for a short period of time. Old bosses or supervisors are also a subconscious realization that you need to structure and organize your daily routine to have a lesser impact on your physical and emotional well-being.

A friendly bear

The presence of an animal in your dream is very symbolic. For instance, a bear acting cordial represents security and endurance in life. This vision suggests that you are an independent and warm person. This vision also points to some of your desires such as living a successful and peaceful life.

Being chased by black bears

I was floating in the river and then someone yelled my name and told me I was on my own. I looked up and there was a black bear swimming towards me. I tried to swim away but then stopped because there was nothing I could do. When I stopped, the bear stopped, then I got to land and then ran and when I looked behind me, there were hundreds of black bears running towards me and I found a group of people to help me, but they just stood around and watched all the bears running by.

Floating peacefully down a river suggests you are generally a positive person who looks on the bright side of life. You also tend to have good luck, mostly because your attitude keeps you from giving up before you get what you want. However, the image of the black bear coming toward you indicates an upcoming illness which may blindside you completely. Seeing multiple bears could predict something quite serious that may require hospitalization or long-term recovery. You should keep a watch for changes in your body and try to maintain the positive energy which has already served you so well thus far.

A black bear while camping

I was travelling North and came to a place to camp. I was cooking fish on a campfire when a black bear walked on two legs and sat with me. I shared my food with him and then went to sleep. When I awoke, he was gone and had left a dead rabbit behind. A piece of paper was tied to the rabbit with his paw print on it.

This dream vision of coming into contact with a black bear while camping and sharing your food with the animal is symbolic of a new awakening in your life. You may have carried the burden of guilt over past actions for a long time which ate at you from the inside until you felt empty and hollow. However, as you come to terms with what has passed and focus your energy on creating a brighter future, you experience this vision which represents an emotional, mental, and possibly spiritual coming of age. During this period of growth and maturity, you can look back at what had occurred in the past and take steps to not only make amends but also to prevent the same situation from happening again.

A close encounter with a black bear

I was driving down the road onto a bridge... I felt as though I should go back home, but for some reason, I thought it was too deep to go back. Then I felt I needed to get out of the vehicle... I climbed on top of a building and the water was almost as high as the building... I started to call for help and that only called a big black bear... He stared at me and that is when my fiance woke me up. I'm 15 weeks pregnant... The bear was all black with a brown nose... Help!!! Thanks a lot...

Dreaming about driving across a bridge symbolically represents life transitions. Given your relatively recent pregnancy, it likely refers to upcoming motherhood and the changes it brings to all aspects of your situation until now. Your desire to turn back and get out of the car (preventing movement down the road) indicates some fear or hesitation about the path ahead, which is understandable in this situation. Your instincts regarding this are probably spot on, as the black bear which comes toward you represents the onset of health problems, either for you or your child. It might be wise to follow your heart and get a check-up from the doctor if things do not feel right.

Bear's lair

Being inside a bear's lair or being unable to find your way out of it portends issues and troubles you are about to face in the nearest future.

Drinking bear's milk

If you happened to taste or to drink bears milk in your dream, it can be an indication of a big trouble or falling prey to or being targeted by your worst enemy.

A family of white bears outside the house

I saw white bear family sitting outside my house, male, female and their cub are sitting together and loving each other, seems like a happy family and I saw them from inside my room and tried to take their picture.

White bears, such as polar bears, are symbolically linked with the idea of love and happy marriage. This interpretation is further enhanced by the image of the cub. Your desire to photograph them and enjoy their familial happiness suggests you desire a similar situation in your own life, meaning you want to get married and start a family soon or you want to work on and improve your relationship with your partner and children if you already have them.

A bear cub and a familiar house

Father handed me a bear cub, I held pet it in my room, it was playful in my arms, set it down. I left driving down roads with signs rubbed off, couldn't read them, and came where large new homes were being built, but stopped. After that, I entered an older home from a side door. It immediately looked familiar, a home I'd been shown when choosing the home I live in now. I entered the living room, and a man from upstairs asked who I was, then my cousin raised up from behind on a couch saying "Her name is Dawn", my daughter's middle name.

The bear cub your father handed you in the dream symbolizes the love that binds you to your family. It is the love your parents demonstrated in raising you and he has passed on this capacity to love the family that you have created for yourself. Meantime, the familiar old house you entered points to something important from your past. The house itself represents a version of yourself, perhaps when you were younger. Looking at it now in the dream vision may be a reminder for you about long-lost connections and damaged ties with your loved ones. Perhaps it is reminding you of your capacity to love and to forgive whatever conflicts or misunderstandings have distanced you from your parents or your loved ones.
