Know when to withdraw and take the time to think things through. Use your introspection wisely.-Bear
When Bear comes strolling across your path:
If this Bear has cubs close at hand or a Bear cub visits you make sure you bring your children closer to you. It could signify that you need to connect closely with the kids around you and ensure that they are safe, free of fear and free from harm.
If Bear is your Animal Totem:
You have a great deal of patience in manifesting your ideas and projects waiting for just the right moment to spring them on the universe.. You have a great deal of confidence in who you are and where you are going in life. You are looked upon as an authority figure. You are nurturing and protect your children well.
If Bear comes drifting through your Dreams:
It could signify that it is time to explore your thoughts. Are you caught in the rut of compulsive thinking? Perhaps you have allowed other to do your thinking for you! Step back and re assess things. Go inward and find your true feeling on this matter and follow what you know is right in your heart.
