Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook WOLVES :To understand a dream symbol first think about anything that you associate with it. A wolf is something that is proud and needs to seek out its living in a hard world. Wolves hunt down their prey by following them until they are worn down. Now try to understand how these feelings and associations are relevant in your own life.

One dreamer in our studies had been having a really hard time and was completely worn down by stress at work and in a relationship. So the wolf in his dream was his minds way of saying that his work and relationship stress made him feel as if he was being chased by a pack of wolves.

Other dreams with wolves in seemed to be more positive. One dreamer had for years admired them and so they could be a symbol for his own personality. If you appear to be a wolf or the dream has a very natural feel to it then maybe the dream depicts your own struggle against the forces lined up against you. The wolf can depict your own desire to be pure and honest and take on the natural challenges the world presents you. You identify with the wolf and its ability to survive and the dignity of its behavior.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)

ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of wolves in dreams?

Dogs maybe man's best friend but they are only one man's best friend. They are pack animals and they will show loyalty to their pack and their pack leader but they will be very fierce towards everyone else. Humans are pack animals and wolves tend to link to troubles within the family. They can link to all sorts of problems from others who are selfish or uncaring.

Wolf dreams can link to problems within the family of any kind. E.g.

"I had this dream on the day that I found out my mother died. I believe it to be a premonition" [Dream Dictionary - huge wolf hound with a terrifying bark rushed through]

"Me and my husband are splitting up"[Dream Dictionary - bleak landscape with wolves]

"My brother is not supporting me in the way that I would hope. I am trying to put a lot of effort into a multimedia project but he is not helping at all. It would be really good for our careers"[Dream Dictionary - wolf bites a baby]

"The day prior to the dream I had a serious fight with my partner over my suspicions he was cheating but I realized I was very wrong. I feel very bad about my behavior. I fear that I am turning into my father(he had a nasty temper)"[Dream Dictionary - angry wolf snarling]

Wolves can symbolise uncaring and selfish people who are often very close to you(from whom you expect greater support). E.g.

"I found out how my ex boyfriend was cheating on me whilst he was still with me. He was a rat"[Dream Dictionary - wolves coming towards me]

"I am being bullied at work"[Dream Dictionary - wolves chasing after me]

"This woman on the internet was really annoying me yesterday. She was so uncaring about her boyfriends child. I hate people like that. The child was totally innocent yet she was really nasty"[Dream Dictionary - like the wolf from "The Never Ending Story"]

"They all seemed so supportive but really they are really nasty and interfering" [Dream Dictionary - werewolves]

Wolves may symbolise your own need to realise that some relationship or situation in your life is failing. E.g.

"I realise that I am stuck in a routine and have become frozen inside. I need to change and seek out new experiences and new people." [Dream Dictionary - a wolf grabs me by teeth and pulls me out]

Wolves can be a positive dream symbol. They can be an animal totem which represents your own struggle and the pureness of your own actions. E.g.

"I feel the wolf represents my own struggle. I feel positively about the way I fight for my goals" [Dream Dictionary - I am a wolf]
