Dream Symbol – Wolves

In movies, tv shows, and cartoons wolves are portrayed in two different ways. They are either seen as devious and vicious or calm and trusting. The two movies that come to mind are (both are my favorites) Thor: Ragnarok and Balto. Both movies have wolves yet each are viewed differently except for one main fact. Both wolves showcase strength and trust toward their human companion. This is an important aspect when deciding what our dreams represent when wolves show up. 

When we dream of wolves they represent the presence of strength, liberty, and the capability to fiercely secure that which is dear to us. Wolves in dreams welcome us to claim back our own power, to run freely and live our best life, without worry, fear, without pity.

The wolf is a symbol of guardianship, ritual, loyalty, and spirit. Wolves have the ability to make quick and firm emotional attachments and often need to trust their own instincts. Thus they teach us to do the same, to trust our hearts and minds, and have control over our own lives.
