Bear People are learning to withdrawal into the sanctity of their den when outside influences turn “cold” and seemingly “merciless.” Winter is not just a change in season, it is a period of slowing down and can be a time of decline, adversity and dreariness. As Bear retreats into her den for hibernation; which is also the womb of Mother Earth, so must you retreat within to seek wisdom through stillness and meditation. Bear also reflects Love and the feminine aspect in the way they care for their cubs, so must you take care of yourself.

When Bear Medicine grabs your attention it is asking you to reconnect through introspection, intuition and dreams. Bear is a powerful animal with a large body and forceful limbs. Bear is capable of standing on her hind legs to show her power. Bear people are reminded of their own power of self-sufficiency; in that, they have the necessary resources to help themselves and stand on their own two feet. Great Spirit (UNEQUA) gave you power, Love and a sound mind and Bear is a reminder to use this power and the soundness of your own mind (intuition). In the stillness of the mind; intuition is awakened. Sometimes this intuition is awakened through dreams.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power and of Love, and of a sound mind.
The nature of bear is associated with dreaming because of their long deep sleep. When Bear sleeps, she is connecting with Great Spirit (UNEQUA) during hibernation; so must you connect during your deep sleep. Bear people are considered “dreamers” due to their ability to tap into their intuition during the meditative process, thereby visualizing and manifesting newness. Bear reminds you not to cast your dreams aside, but to pay attention to them.
For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.
In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;
He openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction.
Bear’s message is about seeking your wisdom through human hibernation, which is meditation, introspection and dreams. This is where you will receive your sealed instruction.
