Dream symbols - bear

Ignore the mere fact of a bear in your dream and concentrate more on related emotions and situations such as "too much to handle", "a bear with a sore head" and "macho behaviour". These are much more general concepts which are much more easy to see the relevance of in real life

BEARS IN DREAMS:Understanding dreams is not so difficult. In practice dream symbols translate into certain words within the English language. For instance a "bear" dream may simply translate into the word "tough" and the dream captures the feeling "I wonder how I will cope coming up against other tough guys when I join the army". Most dreams seem fantastical but can have such simple meanings when understood properly.

In practice bears have several symbolic meanings. Try to think how the following words and phrases link into your feelings right now. Then try to write down sentences which capture your key feelings and intuitions right now.Here is the full list of key words.
- "getting into trouble" (If you came up against a bear it would be too much for you to handle. So a bear could symbolise a situation where you get into serious problems. Think of any situation which could link to that theme. Your dream about a bear could symbolise someone who you had to help get out of trouble yesterday. But the dream could link to some more sophisticated thought linked to that theme. For instance a mother who is thinking about how her son gets into trouble.)
- "macho" (A bear is immensely strong and may symbolise anyone who is immensely strong. Are you a tough guy who is as strong as a bear? Have you come up against other guys who are stronger than you? Do you live in a macho culture? Have you been thinking about anyone who is in the military? Any connection like this could give you further clues to your dreams meaning)
- "bad mood" (We use the phrase a bear with a sore head to describe any grumpy mood we or others have got into. Could your dream represent someone who was in a mood yesterday? Do you fear meeting someone who is very grumpy today?)
- "bad tempered" (A bear is not known for its good temper so it could represent any badly tempered person. Was someone's temper an issue yesterday? If so then the dream could have depicted that temper and the dream maybe pinpointing some key feeling about that)
