Buffalo Meaning, and Messages

In general, Buffalo symbolism is a reminder that you always have everything you need. It also means that your attitude towards abundance influences the rest of this planet. Moreover, this beast teaches us that wealth is present if you honor everything as sacred.  You will always have plenty when you express gratitude to every part of creation. Buffalo symbolism is also representative of prayer and praise. Therefore, this spirit animal teaches that you can call upon this animal for the needs of all creatures. It will bring you harmony. Thus, the Buffalo meaning teaches you to be thankful for the gifts you have already received.

Alternatively, totem could also be reminding you that you need to stay grounded as you work toward greater abundance. Your path toward success is equally as important as the goals that you accomplish.

The Brown Bear, Wolf and, Coyote are predators of the Bison.

Buffalo Totem, Spirit Animal

If you have the Buffalo totem as your essence, you must walk a sacred path, honoring every aspect of life. You will achieve nothing without the aid of the Spiritual Realms. Therefore, you must be humble enough to ask for assistance and then be grateful for those gifts. The Buffalo totem requires you to establish a deep connection to the Earth. It will ask you to support the endangered species of our planet. Thus, he will bring you ‘strength of character’ as well as an independent spirit. With this power animal, you will generate prosperity, abundance, and have plenty of resources. This manifestation cannot be pushed or forced. Therefore you must follow the most natural path.

If you have the white bison as your totem, then you are pure of intention. The survival of our species desperately needs you. You are a motivated activist. To you, ecology matters.

Buffalo Dream Interpretation

This animal is a symbol of survival, strength, and power. You are receiving a sign that you are supported to complete a new endeavor. In contrast, the dream may also be a caution that you are deviating from your life path and goals. Alternatively, the vision can also represent your heritage and your roots. In particular, if you have a White Buffalo dream, then it means that your desires or wishes will come to fruition.

If this beast injured or is deceased, it forewarns you that you need to carefully think through any new ventures and projects that you are undertaking. When there is a herd of Buffalo in your vision, it signifies tranquility and abundance.

  • I saw a cloud of smoke that turned into a buffalo human and back and forth into smoke then it came up to me as if it was hugging me but went right through me. This was when I was younger but I have always thought about it but never told anyone because I was awake when I saw it and always wondered what it meant.

  • I had a dream, in which my dad and I were walking on a lane and we both saw a buffalo which was looking angry and ready to attack, and it was running towards me in intention of hitting me. I was afraid and in shock. I had only one thought, well it is going to kill me, no doubt and I held my father's hand tightly and stood in the same. And finally, when the buffalo reached me, it felt like it went thru me, but nothing happened to me. Not even a scratch on me. And when I turned around to watch where it went, it ran into the bushes passing three people (a man, a woman, and a child).
    I am not able to figure out what to predict from this can anyone help me please?

  • I keep seeing the word buffalo all of a sudden, it started about 6 weeks ago, I was offered a packet of buffalo flavoured crisps (chips) I'd never even knew let alone heard of them as a flavouring, that's how vast and wide the word keeps cropping up unexpectedly. It's what brought me here. The universe is trying to tell me something.

  • I dreamed that I was at the top of a large stadium of thousands of students. We were all bench warmers waiting to be called in to play in the game (what it was I can’t remember). I didn’t care about the game and I wanted to escape, so I climbed the hill behind (and built into) the back of the stadium, and I went into the woods. I came to the base of a very steep, gently rolling slope lined by a thick forest of birch trees. It was the most vibrant green, lush grass that I’d ever seen! The sky was blue peaking out from the mount of the path far above me, and the joy I felt in my freedom was immeasurable. Then I saw it. At first I thought it was an enormous Grizzly bear and I was filled with pure terror, but then I realized it was a gigantic brown bison. It completely blocked my path, and I knew that if it saw me it would kill me, so I dived into a ditch covered by brush along the side of the slope. The buffalo passed me by without noticing me, and I was woken up.

    • Well, clearly it is the negative interpretation in this dream if the buffalo is dangerous here. This buffalo might represent specific individuals, a group of people or society in general. Seeing that there was a scene of being with thousands of other people in the first part of your dream, it might be the pressure from social norms in general to give up on your goals, to become more "normal."

      Hiding and waiting for the buffalo to pass you might mean that what you need to beat the strong and tough buffalo is not to defeat it in a game of strength (as the first scene of your dream suggests), but in a game of wits. Go around the problem, not through it. Find another option with creativity, strategy and trickery on some level.

      That is how you can pass through the buffalo. If you try to defeat it on pure hard work, determination and brute strength, you can never defeat it. You have to look for another option.

  • I had a dream of a buffalo in a hotel I was staying in and it was going crazy trying to get out. I was scared because I was so close but I felt bad that he couldn't get out. Then I was in my room, it was quiet and a beautiful small blue or yellow bird was flying around so I shut the door so no one would scare it off. I woke up thinking I need to set boundaries with people.

  • Well I'm not trying to blow anybody's socks off or anything, but I had asked my Inner Being to give me a glimpse in my dreams of what is waiting for me in my vibrational escrow or vortex, if anyone reading this is familiar with the teachings of Abraham... my little son woke me up earlier than usual by more than an hour or I wouldn't have been likely to recall the dream. In the dream I was giving a lecture at a spiritual gathering in Sri Lanka (this was amusing to me even in the dream...I have a friend from Sri Lanka I rarely get to speak and have never been myself to her country). A sudden rainstorm with half the sky sunny and half rainy began and a herd of white buffalo appeared from nowhere running and playing. The herd was full of small playful babies and they frolicked in the rain, their white tones vividly set against the lush vivid green vegetation and forestry of Sri Lanka. We onlookers sheltered from the rain and watched the buffalo. I later made an awkward joke during my lecture that my friend had mentioned that one neat thing about Sri Lanka is that when it rains the white buffalo come out. (It was a fib even in the dream).

    It was when I began looking up the significance of such imagery in a dream the next day that I discovered its total awesomeness...and my socks blew right off m'feet.

  • I had a dream a while ago about a white buffalo,
    I was surrounded by trees and I felt lost I didn't know where I was or what I was supposed to do, then a white buffalo showed up we stared at each other for a while then it called to me so I walked towards it when I was standing next to it, it turned and led me to a circle clearing it looked up and called again so I looked up and a medicine wheel appeared in the sky. it then led me to a field with hills and it seemed to be trying to tell me something important but I couldn't understand what it was trying to say.
    (this dream has since become repetitive) not sure what it means though a medicine woman told me that the white buffalo is my spirit animal and that its message is important and I have to figure out what its trying to say, unfortunately I just cant seem to figure it out.

    • Amy;
      Has it occurred to that the white buffalo was trying to connect you with the medicine wheel or reconnect you.
      Stop trying to so hard to hear what she is saying. Relax look at the surroundings looking for details. Message will come when you are ready to hear it. Meditation will help.
      Blessings Ed

  • I saw the grandfathers in the night in transited state, Buffalo formed in the night sky then became solid light brown with marking of red and white on him. When i first saw him solid, he was in the air, full stretch then he was flexing like he was kicking both front words and back works like he was trying to expand his space, then he charged straight at me steam coming out of his nose full power then it stop. He broke through a door.

  • A few nights ago I dreamt I was standing on a low, grassy hill at night, surrounded by a few people I didn't really know. Slowly a large herd of buffalo came towards us, from a hill across, walking--not stampeding. The feeling in the air was peaceful. They all slowly lay down at our feet to sleep and then snow gently came down from the dark sky. It lightly dusted the sleeping buffalo, but they did not awaken. This dream felt very peaceful, compassionate and calm.

  • I had a dream about 2 years ago and in this dream I was sitting low peeking out from a small hill and there was a buffalo and it began to birth a baby white buffalo and this careless cowboy type guy came to pick up the baby and the mother buffalo kicked him I can't rember but I believe she kicked him off in the right direction.. I thought about right brain left brain symbolism and this was definitely a very good dream

    I also won the Clifford white cow award when I was 16
    Just another way white buffalo has came to me
    What do u think?

    • I could try to interpret this, but really you have to look into your own life for answers and that is an involved and detailed process. Perhaps your spirit totem, that which you are most like, changed, or you were incorrect in thinking you were a wolf when in fact you are currently a buffalo at heart. It could also mean that you were making wolf decisions and the time has come for buffalo decisions, which are different for a number of reasons I cannot quite pinpoint as of this precise moment. Buffalo are... not wolves :) Not predators, not beasts of the hunt... not man's best friend, unless you know some kind of buffalo I've never met before. :) I hope this was of some help. If you ask yourself what a buffalo is to you, what a wolf is to you, and attach memories and things to your meditiations, you might come across an answer. As for whiteness, we tend to think that has to do with purity, but in the case of the buffalo it has to do with prophecy and rarity, perhaps even uniqueness.

  • I had a beautiful experience with a massive buffalo bull once. We were at a beautiful wildlife park where the buffalo roam free on hundreds of acres. We were riding a tram thru the park and there were about 5 sections of the tram - a lot of families were on it with us. All of the suddenthis giant buffalo bull ran up ti the tram. Ther driver stopped and spoke calmly on the microphone that he needed to stop so he wouldn't spook the buffalo but that they never come close to the tram so just stay very still and calm. He walked closer and closer to me... I was on the outer edge near him. I slowly slid my kids over to my husband who moved them up to a different section becausewe weren't sure what he was going ti di he was si very big. All of the sudden we are face to face and he literally laidhis giant head in my lap like a little child wanting a storyread to him !! He calmly stayed like that with his head to the side laying on my lap. He stayed like that for over 5 minutes. I felt very calm and even started stroking his head likeyiu would a little kitty cat. Then he suddenly stood up and wandered away ! The tram driver booked it out of there ther whole time saying he had never seen anything like that. Everyone was askingme if I was ok and saying they hadbeen so scared but I wasn't scared at all ! It felt very sacred. It was beautiful actually.

    • This past spring I was camping and a huge bull came into my campsite lay down beside my car my dogs were quiet and respectful the whole time. I sang Wakan Tonka to him and he slept.
      I had the feeling I could touch the buffalo but chose not too as a large crowd was gathering and I Did not want to role model dangerous behaviour to the children. I believe the buffalo came into my life as my personal totem. For over 30 years prior my totem was a pinecone. Quite the difference! It is a big responsibility to have buffalo as a totem but I am up to it! Hope you are too.

  • I dreamt of a large brown buffalo, and I watched as she gave birth to a strong, healthy calf. It was part of a larger dream during which I was struggling with several other problems. Watching that birth was the only pleasant part of the whole dream. Is there anyone with an understanding of this dream?

  • Tsitekeriyakon, Buffalo speaks again that we always have everything that we need. We so easily and so often mistake what we want with what we need. We are never going to have everything that we want, because it is built in to human nature to want more than we have at any given moment. But Tsitekeriyakon reminds us that our needs are always provided to, even if our desires can never truly be satisfied. Buffalo speaks of the generosity of Spirit that comes when you know that you have all that you need and so are willing to share with others, Our desires, our appetites are selfish and greedy. But our Spirits are much larger and more generous than our ever hungry bodies. Our Spirits, our Souls and our Hearts seek to open ourselves up to the vast universe. Tsitekeriyakon is the Spirit of our generous Hearts and lives in the simplicity of the moment, not in the fear of selfishness of anticipation. Be here. Be now. Be as mighty and as generous as Tsitekeriyakon is, because she is never wanting.

  • Tsitekeriyakon, Buffalo, with his great and powerful shoulders and mighty breath reminds me once again that, however it might appear I always have more than enough of what I need, and that I should share what I have with others rather than hoard and cling to it. My Grandmother, my Memaire, liked to say “When you’re in doubt, do something for somebody else. Give something away.”. Coming today in conjunction with Hunter of Vision, on a week that has been a challenge in that it feels like I’ve lived a life filled with far too much loss for one person, Tsitekeriyakon seems to remind me that I should be grateful for the wonderful souls that have crossed my path and that it is time for me to carry this loss once again, because I can and because I should. My heart has always been strong and my back has always been strong. I can carry what I am given. And I am truly grateful that so many bright souls have touched my life. I have been given so much. Some of it has been taken from me. Some of it has been lost to me. More will be lost. And still I will have had so much and I will have so much to offer. I may not always See this clearly. But I will be reminded if I am willing to listen. Thank you, Tsitekeriyakon. Niawen’kó:wa. And Thank you too to all those who have allowed me to be a small part of their lives.

  • Tsitekeriyakon, Buffalo, coming on the weekend of the Canadian Thanksgiving reminds me that we always have more than we need, even when we do not think that it is so. I often joke that Thanksgiving is not exactly a holiday on the Reservation, that when I was growing up it was seen more as “Why did we feed them, day.”. But giving to others, sharing in the abundance of the earth, even when the result might turn out very badly for us, enlarges us and makes us fully human beings. We do not give in order to improve ourselves, but to improve the lives of others. It is not the reward, or even the punishment that matters. It is that we give, we share no matter what the result might be. Because that is how the earth, how the universe gives to us. We live our lives as if outcomes are the point, but there is so much more to being alive than mere outcomes. Today can only be today if we allow it to be. If we treasure it as today, not as the result of our yesterdays or the addition to our tomorrows. Tsitekeriyakon reminds me that my life is filled with an abundance of gifts, even when I do not see it as so, and that it is the sharing of those gifts that makes the difference between being alive and merely surviving.
