Interpretation of dream: Bear

The bear symbolizes spiritual strength and power, both latent ? for example, when a bear hibernates - and also apparent. In shamanism the bear is a very powerful totem animal - a form of guardian. Psychologically, we have recognized the need to meet the force of our own creativity. As a symbol from a play on words, it can also suggest stamina, whether we are able to bear or put up with certain difficulties. To have a bear appear alive in a dream indicates aggression, or if it is dead, the handling of ones deeper negative instincts. To dream of a toy bear - i.e. a teddy bear - shows a childlike need for security. As a protective force in both mens and womens dreams, the bear can represent maternal energy.
