Wolf Symbolism in Dreams

When you Dream of Wolf. . .

Dream symbolism of wolf may represent that you are being called to study the art of shamanism.  Many shamans wore headdress of Wolf spirit animals as well as Bear ~ they did this to call upon the aid and assistance of the great spirit of the animal to help them manifest a particular desire.   

In your dream a shaman may be coming to you in the form of a Wolf to help with healing.  

When you dream of Wolf your spirit may be calling to the nomad within. 

If you dream of a pack of Wolves, you may need to pay close attention to being surrounded by those who do not wish you the best of intentions.

If you dream of a Lone Wolf, you may need to spend some time on your own contemplating the path that is best for you, it may be time to separate from your pack and find a mate.

If you encounter a Wolf in the wild, you may feel the presence of ancestors, and you may have even been a Wolf in another lifetime, and Wolf wants to remind you where you have come from.  This is particularly true if the Wolf "marks" you, then you indeed are being called back to the wild spirit of the Wolf.  

When Wolf symbolism comes to you in a dream, Wolf may be trying to help you choose the best path.

The question comes to me frequently;  What does it mean when you dream of a Wolf? 

This is my answer:  Remember the totem powers of Wolf symbolism, and think of the challenges you are facing right now, how do they relate to what the Wolf may be trying to teach you?   

When contemplating the Wolf, keep in mind that the Wolf is a quintessential hunter, he has a passion and lust for his quarry.  When you want to heal something or bring something forward from the unseen, you must have the same wild unfettered passion to keep you moving in that direction, for then and only then does the manifestation of the shaman come forth.
