Search for the person you aspire to be rather than searching for who you are!-Catfish
If Catfish has come swimming across your path
Alternatively the Catfish has come to let you know that you are now entering a period of emotional learning and self discovery. You are being asked to keep an open mind, accept the lesson or lessons as they come. The objective is for you to grow emotionally and learn to come from a place of unconditional love and acceptance.
If Catfish is your Animal Totem
You are an excellent communicator and have an affinity for the written and spoken word. You know how to make the best of any situation, seize any opportunity as it presents itself and know how to sift through your own emotional waters to keep yourself balanced and grounded. You are comfortable with your emotions, know how to express them with out laying blame and are not afraid of showing them to those around you. You have a natural gift for prosperity in your life yet are perfectly happy with what the universe supplies. In many cases you have a come what may attitude that seems to land you squarely on your feet most of the time.
If Catfish has come to you in your dreams
To dream of a Catfish symbolizes that someone in your waking life is not what they appear to be. For some reason they are hiding their true self from you along with their true nature. Their true intentions may not be immediately apparent.
To see a Catfish fighting it’s way upstream, or holding on tightly to some object as water rushes over them signifies the dreamers inability to trust themselves to let go of their emotions. To see a Catfish on land means that you are being asked to adapt to your situation and move on to a new place.
