Wolf Meaning and Messages

In this case, Wolf symbolism is reminding us that although we see ourselves as civilized creatures, we are still animals with a deep-seated wild spirit. In other words, Wolf meaning has arrived to teach us about our inner selves. Moreover, as we learn ourselves, we will discover our hidden power and stamina. This creature is a social and highly organized animal. There is a definite hierarchy within the pack. This species also understands the order of things and the balance of harmony and discipline. Therefore Wolf symbolism is also a reminder that our spirit seeks peace, social standing, and acceptance.

When one of these creatures is spotted alone in the wilderness, Wolf meaning symbolizes freedom. When this animal is in a pack, it represents the feeling of community. If Wolf symbolism appears to you alone or as a group, it is asking you to do the same within your own life.

An animals’ howl is primal and penetrating. The long mournful cry locates clan members. Also, to let Wolves from outside of the pack know their territorial borders. If you hear this animal howling, then the Wolf meaning is telling you to stand your ground. It is time to defend your boundaries.

Coywolf, Wolfdog

When a Coywolf (also known as the eastern coyote and woyote) makes an appearance in your life, it is a warning that you need to adapt to your current situation. Significant changes are currently required for you to restore balance in your life. On the other hand, Wolfdog is a message that you will need to balance your loyalties and your priorities more successfully.

The Wolf is so closely related to the Dog, dingo, jackal, dhole, and the Coyote that their DNA is almost indistinguishable from each other. The Husky and the German Shepherd also closely resemble this animal

Wolf Totem, Spirit Animal

People with the Wolf totem can make quick and firm emotional attachments. They also know how to trust their insights into these attachments. These people prefer diplomacy and retreat over open hostility or fights. However, this is not an act of cowardice. This behavior is because of their innate wisdom. Folks with this spirit animal will often maintain a network of loyal friends and family for when the going gets tough.

Wolf totem people are competitive and will become upset when you disturb the social order. This is especially true if it happens in their own home.

People with this power animal will research before making an informed decision. However, they mustn’t hesitate too long to choose what to do. More often than not, their searching will lead them to the same conclusion that their animal intuition did in the first place.

Wolf Dream Interpretation

When you have a Wolf dream, it symbolizes survival, beauty, solitude, mystery, self-confidence, and pride. It means that you can keep your composure in a variety of social circumstances and blend into any situation with ease and grace.

To have a white Wolf dream signifies courage and victory. Therefore, you can see the light even in your darkest hours. When the animal is black in your vision, it represents your shadow. There are characteristics of this animal that you are refusing to acknowledge or incorporate into yourself.

To dream that you kill this creature indicates a betrayal and there are secrets to be revealed. If this animal in your dream is chasing you, then it implies that you are unwilling to confront a problem that has been negatively impacting your life. Instead, you are running away from it.

To hear one of these creatures howling in your dream represents a cry for help from somebody in your waking life.

  • Hi, my name is Melissa. Today I had a dream that I was in my room and I felt like something was watching me. When I turned around it was a white wolf. At first I ignored it and moved about my room, but then it followed me. Eventually I gave in and bent down to give it the attention it wanted, and when I did it kinda came close and nestled its head in my chest. When I looked down at it though, (finally getting a good look it) it had no eyes. The space where its eyes were supposed to be was completely blank, it was just fur. And I though I was shocked, I wasn't scared. In fact it was at that point that I felt somewhat connected to it (it was also at that point that I became self aware that I was lucid dreaming). I don't know what this means... but this is my first time dreaming of a wolf/wolfdog?

  • Hello, I woke up this morning with a great sense of curiosity about my dream. I was in my uncle’s house back in Costa Rica, but it was our home, not his. I was outside and there was right in front of the house a mediums size tree with long and low branches. I first saw colorful love birds hanging out on the tree and then they flew away. I was calling my sister, my fraternal twin sister, to come and see them and then white cats started climbing the trees and they just sat there. They were all sorts of white cats. It was very calming and majestic to look at. At the same time, I was in disbelief that this was real life as there were probably over 20-30 white cats. Then, we saw on the ground a little kitten half black and half white going inside the house. My sister chased it and finally caught him. He was sweet and cuddly. I went back outside to keep looking at the cats and then there was this white wolf. A neighbor said to us to put him on a leash because he was gonna bite someone. The wolf was protective of me and my sister. He was not animal that you would pet, at least I didn’t feel I could do that, if that makes sense, he was more of a protector. The cats didn’t mind him and he didn’t mind the cats. I woke up and was holding my amethyst tightly on my left hand. I usually put it under my pillow.

  • Now i got one, it was a dream. With explaination that mine was a shadowed out werewolf carrying a crossbow around dusk. It was standing in the driveway when i had met it. But me being curious and afraid at the same time i tried to pursue it. It turned around and had started running away but wasnt looking back. I had chased it for a good 20 to 30 yards before my panting woke me up. I had put so much effort to wanting to know that it woke me up.

  • When I was 13 or 14 years old I had a worse dream. That is the scariest dream I've ever dreamed of. In my dream I was being chase by tons of zombies, it looks like real. I was really trying to escape the zombies and unexpectedly my eyes were opened by their own and I realize that was just a dream. I sat from my bed and right in front of my eyes I saw a small *really small black wolf (not as small as rat).
    I shouted "Mom!!!!!, Mom!!!!!", and I try to shake my brother beside me sleeping but no one wakes up. I shouted really loud that makes the small wolf look at me many times (it looks like the wolf didn't expect me to wake up in my dream. And that thing just stayed where it is.) And after 40 seconds the small wolf just disappeared. I stayed where I am and just waited for the sun to come out
    *I am sure that when I saw that small wolf I am not dreaming. I just wonder does anyone who sees this comment also experienced what I experienced.*

  • Hi i'm Nevaeh for the last week i,v been having a dream, i was running through the forest ( don't remember what i was running from) And while i was running there was a beautiful white wolf on my left and a grey/black wolf on my right, i don't know what the message was though. And today i did "Meet your spirit animal guided meditation" and in my mind i was in a big field there was this bright yellow light around me and in the distance there was an animal not to big or small, and it was walking slowly towards me, i just stood there and watched, once it got to me i could see it was a wolf, it like nudged me, walked away a bit then looked back at me i decided to follow it, and it led me to this forest it was so beautiful and soon i opened my eye's. That was the most amazing thing i,v experienced in my mind. I love my spirit animal it leads me when i need help and make's me follow my instincts, and since i was 3, i would always howl and now i know why i did, they were my animal instincts.

    • I sense this dream means that you're being guided by the wild instincts of both the white wolf and the grey/black wolf. That both your positive emotions and negative emotions are trying to tell you something. Look inward to yourself like the independent wolf, and ask, "Why am I feeling this way?" and "How are these emotions trying to help me?" Even negative emotions can have good intentions, such as fear warning you from something dangerous, or anger defending you from someone harmful. If it is unhelpful, it will lessen if you realize what is trying to do, and if it's helpful, you're able to take its advice.

      Good luck.

  • Hi, when I was 14 years old I had a dream/vision of two wolves beside me. One was pure white sitting on my right side, and the other was white/black/brown on my left. The white was was sitting up and proud. The multi colored wolf was going up and down. It did not know if it should lie down or sit up. Beside the wolves, I was sitting on top of a hit called Old Baldy. The hill is located in the Sahtu region in the Northwest Territories, Canada. I am not an aboriginal and was not born in the north. I use to live in a community that had their only Shaman (whom had already passed away a few years ago). If the Shaman was still a live I would ask him what the multi color wolf ment and why it keeps moving up and down. To this day I still feel the wolf spirits close by, and I feel safe when they are there.
    Just resently my youngest had her vision/dream of her animal spirit. I informed my daughter before she was 14 that an animal spirit will be coming and reveal itself when she is ready. The way she discribes the animal spirit, it sounds like a wolf that is two toned. Only one wolf she saw in her vision/dream. The wolf is half white, half black and big. But, it had a golden glow about it and she felt safe. She was able to go up to it and touch its chest. Beside this, my daughter also has a gift.

    • I sense the white wolf sitting on your right side calm and proud meant that you needed to listen to the calm emotions inside you. Intuition is different from fear in that it is never a question or an uncertain voice. True intuition knows. This is why people often distrust their gut feeling because they can't tell the difference. The multicolored wolf seems to be leading you to explore your darker emotions and problems, and to confront them with the bravery of the wolf. The second wolf seems very adventurous, and is trying to encourage you to try new things, to push out of your comfort zone. The first white wolf tells you to learn from what is certain from the past, and the multicolored wolf tells you to learn from exploring new activities towards the future.

    • I do not know how to make a normal comment so I will tell my story through replies. I had 2 dreams where a Northwestern Wolf had a large role in both of them. In 1 of them, I was being attacked by something (I do not remember what was attacking me) and a wolf came out of nowhere and defended me. The 2nd dream was about a wolf which I had to chase down (which I cannot remember the reason why) and it was in a carnival setting with large fireworks going off, it was certainly interesting. Any thoughts?

  • So I had a dream very vivid as I'm a dream walker. Most of the time I can understand my dreams pretty well but this one took me for a loop. I was in a area where there was a brick building and children were playing in the background area. Then this black thing caught my eye it looked like a small black cat but as I looked at it. The creature started to head towards me and as it got closer it got bigger. Then it took the form of a black dire wolf almost 7 feet in height and it was snarling as it approached me I yelled out to the surrounding people about a wolf in the area. But it kept creeping up closer and as it did I stood my ground till it was standing right in front of me. At this moment I noticed under it's chin a small strip of white fur but the beast was big and the only thing I could think of was to shove my hand as far down his throat to try and grab it's heart. And as he opened his mouth to attack I immediately dove my hand into his mouth where I felt his teeth scrap up my arm. And when it happened I woke up. Recently had a promotion at work and one of my co workers who is now a subordinate is not happy about the situation while at the same time. Getting a job offer for a great part time gig all the while I'm trying to help my wife get over an addiction and trying to patent an invention and I'm assuming all these things had alot to do with the dream but I didn't understand till I got on here

    • Perhaps this snarling large black wolf represents your addiction that you are struggling with, which is at least what my gut instinct is telling me. It seems to defeat this addiction, you need to confront the causes and events that led to it, rather than constantly escaping and trying to distract yourself from it. I believe that trying to get to its heart through the wolf's mouth might mean trying to calm your wilder instincts causing this addiction by looking for the root cause of whatever this addiction is personally for you, which might require a lot of inner reflection, journaling, meditation and if you don't already have one, a therapist specializing in treating addictions.

      Best of luck to your struggles, Daniel. After all, addictions rarely simply is a problem just by itself, but is a way to deal with larger problems, which you are trying to escape from. Take a moment to see the big picture of your whole life's story, and notice how other areas of life are indirectly influencing your addiction.

      • I know how you feel I to believe in wolf symbolism. l believe we are something called a gyre the people that go missing, well some of them, are gyre souls meant to survive in the wild and thrive. The hunters want us for themselves because they like our strong unbreakable spirit, don't worry neveah you're not alone. Good luck if you need help locating your inner gyre try howling on a cliff or in the wild. try to remember your wolf name mine was Moon. Remember we are special don't tell anybody you cant tell a single soul they could be hunters when you know a hunter is near is when you want to run as fast as you can. any piece of jewelry will help you stay secret Good luck, your fellow gyre, Hailee Warner

  • Hi! I remembered that since I was a child I always wanted to be a wolf / be apart of a wolf pack. Since then I kept thinking about a beautiful white wolf, it became me! My brain and heart kept saying I have wolf blood in my veins but I ignored it. But then suddenly, I have the urge to howl every day, everywhere I go and so I kept doing it. I acted like a wolf for the longest of my time. After I came across some weird changes of my life, I got a few headaches but eventually when i heard of a wolf howling it stopped. I was confused but maybe there's a way that... 𝗪𝗲𝗿𝗲𝘄𝗼𝗹𝘃𝗲𝘀 𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗲𝘅𝗶𝘀𝘁? My grandmother only got weird bites only when next to me. My clothes were always almost torn or not worn by me. I still don't know if it is true but I guess thanks...

    • Perhaps it's possible that you had a past life as a wolf? Research on reincarnation by Dolores Cannon has her discovering many examples of people who had past lives as animals, if you are open to that type of information. (My complete respects to your opinions if you disagree with reincarnation's existence, though you can look up arguments or evidence of reincarnation online if you're curious.) It might also be of interest to you to search the term "incarnated elemental," for a possible related issue.
