You must be fully aware before you can come from a place of unconditional acceptance.

Labrador Meaning and Messages

In this case, Labrador symbolism is letting you know that it is time for you to explore the concept of “Unconditional Acceptance.” Absolutely everyone is different, no matter how much they try to conform to societal norms. Thus it is in your best interest to find acceptance for yourself and everything else. Take a lesson from the Labrador meaning and welcome that we are all creatures of Spirit no matter what species we are. This spirit animal understands that others have their paths, and though it is okay to disagree with what they say and do, we must learn to accept them unconditionally. Like the Panda, Labrador symbolism teaches that what we perceive as darkness must have light somewhere, especially since there cannot be light without the dark.

Labrador Totem, Spirit Animal

People with the Labrador totem will have a reputation for being one of the most accepting and loving persons. They practice “Unconditional Acceptance” at all times and never pass judgment on others for their differences or choices in life. These folks are supportive and will work behind the scenes to help you. People with this spirit animal totem understand the concept “There by the grace of God go I.” They also know how to set their boundaries. Like the Cow, these folks are compassionately generous with their love, bounty, and wisdom. People often turn to them for advice simply because they know that there will be no judgment for their indiscretions.

These folks have a habit of rescuing people, even those who do not want saving. They have to find a balance within themselves because they cannot fix everything.

Labrador Dream Interpretation

When you have a Labrador dream, it symbolizes that you have made the right choice for yourself recently. Like the Beetle, it is a signal that you are on the right path with your goals, ambitions, family, and friends. If the Dog is bringing you a bird, it is a message that a spiritual breakthrough is imminent for you. If the Retriever is walking by your side, then it signifies companionship in the form of a soul mate. This person has either come to you or will be coming to you soon.

  1. I dreamt I reached out to pet a black lab and it went for me, I raised my black leather bag and the dog attacked it instead of me.

  2. hello lee abigail,
    is your mother a very intuitive person? it seems that in this dream, she is able to see something about your or the shared situation between you and her that you are not. perhaps she will help you in coming to an understanding about something emotional in your life, that matters very much in the scheme of your lifespan. what is she able to recognize, that’s connected and dear to you, that others (including yourself) aren’t as readily able to? this is one of the questions you should ask yourself, and in that same vein, how has she helped you in the past in such a way?

  3. Just this morning, i dreamt about lots of black labrador (maybe around 6-8 all black lab) and I cant recognize who is our own black lab. Then my mom came and right away found who is ours. Then the 3 of us hugged each other. What does it mean?

    Last Night I dreamt of Labradors like lots of them attacking me almost tearing me apart and I was screaming for my dad’s help but either he couldn’t hear me or could hear me didn’t come and save me or anything. The thing is that I have a very good pretty much excellent relationship with my dad and I don’t understand why I dreamt of him that way . Plus my little cousin she was by my side and was helping me stay alive by telling me to repeat something I don’t remember what though . Could someone explain to me what my dream means please. P.s :I have my exams coming very soon like starting in a week exactly so maybe this dream is about it I don’t know.

    I dreamt of a off white labrador puppy. One vutlure was flying in the sky and it took a cat from there suddenly. There were 5 kittens also but think of saving the labra puppy and took him into my house. Suddenly owner of kittens came and i didn’t know if they are saved but, all five of them were saved.

  6. Last night I had a dream about a black labrador that had a battery where its brain should be. This battery โ€˜brainโ€™ somehow came out and the dog lay there, lifeless. I canโ€™t really remember whether I got it back in or not. Any ideas on the symbolism?

    1. So I think battery symbolises fuel and power to move on. If it were the brain then it means that you are a person that just does, you don’t waste your time thinking on it too much. Maybe you naturally help people without a thought, maybe you accept everything and everyone without a thought. I wouldn’t take this dream as necessarily a bad thing because maybe it is about letting just stop for once. Maybe it’s time you didn’t care about what other people needed or not.

  7. Recently I had a dream and in it a black lab was with me through almost all of the second half. The dog was very affectionate, aggressively so by the end of the dream. I wasnโ€™t really scared of the dog hurting me.

    Any help would be great, thanks!

  8. I had a dream that a black Lab, missing one of his front legs, was running towards me,several feet in front of a police detective, and started talking to me as he was running towards me. Telling me, ” He’s coming for u, u better run now if u want to get away.” Can someone please tell me what that means? Freaked me out a little. Lol. Thanks๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. I had a dream of my beautiful loving sweet black lab, his name was Monster because he was so huge – we had his mom and we kept him from the litter. He’s long gone and he came to me in a symbolic dream. I noticed his nose was dry and I awoke very thirsty. It was very little vingb

  10. today, September 11,2017 i dream around 3 a.m. ” i was in the kitchen, then i open the kitchen window to have a fresh air , then soon as i open the window that cute little robin bird suddenly fly into my hands, i was so surprised, and i opened my palm to let it go but don’t want to go, so i go out to put it down to the floor, and i was really surprised that the beautiful big brown Labrador retriever was lying on the ground where the window i just opened. so i waited if the dog is coming to attack me , as i don’t know where was it came from., that dog get up and just walk and passed around me. that’s how wake me up at 3 a.m.

  11. The last paragraph is me to a T. How do I find the balance? Do I fabricate some sort of rule or limit on who I can and cannot Help.

    1. Yes..you need to find balance as per that last paragraph. There are different people with their agendas and biases. And we tend to see everyone as equal..and helping everyone including enemies. It is not correct..I have faced same as Labrador retriever is my totem. You have to give priority to people who help u in ur tough time..and foremost love yourself..than anyone else. And one more thing in general ..don’t help unless asked..except emergencies. Still u feel the impulse to lessen the pain of others..ask them do u need my help ? If they accept help..else give only positive vibes n move on.

  12. I had a dream that I gave a big hug to our Labrador who was actually a pet at home in childhood, it was the biggest hug ever!

  13. I had a dream of me finding a White Labrador Retriever. As the dream progressed, so did our companionship. What could this mean?

  14. I had a dream of a large huge labrador running through a narrow tunnel opposite the direction I was going I look back to see if the lab could make it safely through the tunnel without barreling down its occupants but in all the labrador was happy. What could this mean? โ—

  15. I dreamt of a chocolate lab that keeps bringing me a snake that bit it’s nose 2 times ๐Ÿ™ I keep walking backwards into the bathroom and I shut the door but the snake came in anyways. I woke up after I proceeded to get into the tub/shower. ๐Ÿ™ The dog didn’t look like he was affected all that much from the snake’s bite.

  16. Pretty much right on! I have a new lab mix in the family, now 11 months old, and he sure is a messenger of devotion, love, loyalty, trust, joy, and playfulness. ๐Ÿ˜€ But calmness? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ Moderation? ๐Ÿ™„ You must be kidding me!!! Maybe this will be true of him when he is older, but that is not a message he is bringing me now. And he himself brings no sense of boundaries, but he IS increasing my awareness of where mine are and where I need to enforce them! That is a lesson that is good for me. <3

  17. Hi! What does it mean if you have two labrador retriever, one black and one white?
    Does it mean that I have a choice to make?
    Blessings ๐Ÿ˜›

  18. I dreamt that I was sitting down on the floor at a friends house and their labrador came and layed down next to me. The labrador was licking me and snuggling up next to me so much that the dog was so heavy I could get it off me I was trapped haha It was basically smothering me. I would like to know what this means? It seamed to be very friendly and showing lots of love towards me, so it was comforting.

    1. Glen, I had a very similar dream where I was lying on the ground and a milk chocolate Labrador came to me and lay beside me, almost hugging me. It was weird but comforting. In reality, I am not a dog person but my favourite dog is the Labrador

    2. I had the craziest dream last night. I dreamt i was taking notes on a computer to a meeting for a co-worker. In the meeting i got a video call from a professor at a university for a job interview. I excused myself from the meeting and took the call outside. During the interview i had the urge to look to my left, so i did. There standing a few feet away was a black lab looking at me. It did not seem threatening or angry. Just stood there until i acknowledged it. When i did it came over wagging its tail happily to nuzzle up to me under my chin. I was laughing when it did and started patting the dog. I also continued with the interview as well. And that is where the dream ended.

      I am not sure what this means or why it showed up.
