Question: - To what extent love is menacing for me? medicine wheel: Wolf clan apprenticeship: The west, - strength, - love (in particular the black bear) Psychologically: In the European society the bear is mostly associated with the female forces of the nature. By his brown colour signals he confine contact with the earth mother. With the Teutons was the bears, for example, also the queen of the woods. A good-natured, peaceful-bad-tempered, comfortable bear points to motherly security and security, or to the desire for it. The fear of menacing bears mostly refers to oppressive, incriminating female or motherly taking possession. Also an older, dominating sister or other woman can exercise this function. This meaning must exist not only with children, because the mother's child's respect can also influence the life of adults strongly. If the bear is dead, he stands for the contact of the dreaming with his deeper negative instincts. If the dream of a teddy bear acts, a childish need for security manifests itself in this. After Carl Gustav Jung comes the negative aspect of the higher personality which distinguishes itself by the proverbial strength of a horse. The dream bear also has something dangerous, menacing in himself. The bear is often an execrated prince who waits for redemption in the fairy tale. If the dreaming accepts the dark, female side of the sexuality, the part which frightens him, he can come to a more contented sexual life. Therefore, bear dreams are more important for men than for women. With women such a dream often delivers a tip to plumb completely her sexuality, so that this is not foreign-certain. The symbol of the bears is therefore also an archetype. The bear stands also for the wish to meet the strength of own creativity. Thus he stands in the dream often for impetuous, coarse strength which one should use more carefully not to shoot after the aim. However, positively in it is the energy and self-assertion with which one will also master difficult situations. Spiritually: At this level the bear symbolises spiritual strength and power.
