  1. i dream that my sister and I entered the wood theres was a carnival and all off a sudden a herd of bears come out of the trees running towards us and my sister managed to get to the top without being pulled, however they managed to catch my pants but i got loose and made it to the top safely.

  2. A bear is between me and my old family homestead. My dog barks at
    him at the opposite hill and the bear attacks my dog and kills him by
    eating the dogs head.
    I run to home. My mom who is now passed is in driveway I yell to her
    to get in the house a bear is coming and my older sister is outside
    cooking on a kitchen like grill.
    She ignores me and continues cooking .
    I wake up at this time.
    I’ve had dreams of bear though out my entire life. They mostly are trying
    to attack me.

  3. I had a dream that there was several bears in my back yard they walked onto my deck and started trying to force there way into my sliding glass door then it tried to to enter into the front door. They eventually gained access so I hide my kids in closets and in high places so the bears won’t try to harm them….What does this mean? In addition, I’ve had dreams of snakes and tigers trying to attach/ enter my home.

  4. I dreamt, that my daughter had a white polar bear as a pet, it was very safe with her, her husband and children. I was scared of the bear so I took big circles around it to avoid any contact with it, but the children herself and her husband would cuddle with the polar bear and the children would climb on the bear and play it the polar bear. Then my son and got these text messages, I looked out the window of my daughter house (in my dream she lived in a little valley, very beautiful) and a saw pack of wolves going by, followed by elk, then buffalo, a flock of geese..then my son looks at me and saw the text said, the end is near so all the animals are gathering from all over the world in their specific herds, then I woke up. So what does my dream mean?

    • White or polar bears can represent rebirth. You dream is very profound but you shouldn’t fear the changes taking place. It is a very profound message as to what is taking place in our world… then end is near…..but there is no reason to fear

  5. When I was about 5 years old I had a recurring dream 3 or 4 times. I am now going on 17 next month. Every time the dream started off with me and my brother on top of the cliff fishing on a beautiful sunny day. The first time i had this dream i walked to the edge of he cliff and then tripped and started falling off but I grabbed on to the edge begging for my brother to help me up and he did and then I woke up. But then every time I dreamed about it after that my brother wouldnt help me up but laugh at me and kick my hands off and then I would fall off but into a big circle of big brown bears and at first I was scared then they started just licking my face and I then got the feeling that I belonged with them and that they loved me then after that my parents would come out of a cave under the cliff I fell off of with huge plates of food for me and the bears and then I wake up. Keep in mind me and my brother use to be inseparable and now we barely talk and fight and argue often now.

  6. I am so upset and bothered by this dream I had last night and I cannot shake it… In my dream I was living in a more woodsy type area and I had a brown bear as a “pet” I suppose… This dream was a rapid flash that I do not have a ton of details… I was around the bear outside and the bear was friendly and I was not afraid of the bear… I all of a sudden stabbed the bear in the hind end by the hip and and it was in pain but did not attack me… I started to get all upset and want it dead but I couldn’t kill him so I made my husband stab it again in the chest and he was hesitant but did so for me and the bear was then out of my direct site but I could kind of see him and he finally died… What is wrong with me????? I am an animal lover and I am beside myself with this dream!!!! Please somebody help me figure this out… I pray it has purpose and meaning because that was horrific!!!!!

  9. what if i dreamt that on a country side my boyfriend and i was on the run because this psycho guy was killing everyone with his field machine I don’t know what it is called but it has very sharp blades in the front; turning fields of goods into dust bowls and snakes were dead. Then we was on the run to somewhere far (it said road 82 or 83) and found an empty village with lots of cars. Used one of the cars that had machine guns and killed people in my dream. Then I lost my man along the way and turned into a brown bear in the lake swimming to the other side? Then at the end I was human and reunited with him.

  10. I had the wierdest dream that I was back home in my childhood home and then I saw a giant brown bear in the distance……suddenly I realised it saw me and we all ran upstairs and waited for it to get to us. In preparation for the arrival of the bear we were all in my Mum and Dads bedroom but all the family were there and we pushed the bed into the corner and prepared for the arrival of the big bear……..we found two pen knives and a larger knife and planned to kill the bear with them……

  11. i had a dream about a brown bear. my family and i were having revival? in my dream, my family look like they were preparing some food for after service. then all of a sudden, a big brown bear was standing by the door on it’s two feet then it was making bear noises as if it were hungry. but we were being protected by some door that looked like a screen door. for some reason, it seemed like we were in a cage. being protected from it. the bear was just making it’s bear nosies. then my dream ended. i never dreamt about a bear. what does the bear mean?

  12. I had a dream I was at a party in my backyard, and out of nowhere there was a bear. No one was alarmed except me. I had a little pistol on me and decided to shoot at it. First shot I stunned it, then later it died. My family then got the bear, and put it on the back of a truck. Later I went by it only to see it lying there 10ft tall. It was also brown. I kicked it, and it was aroused, it was dying slowly I suggest. What does this mean?!

  13. yesterday i dreamt about bears that forbid me not to get at the upper room as they were scattered all over the place. the only method of me getting to the upper room was to use the tree and all my children where there waiting for me. however i could reach them. please explain this dream for me.

  14. I had a dream that I was on a deserted road, in the middle of the night and there was only a couple street lights on. I turned around and came face to face with a big, brown bear. It didn’t do anything we were just face to face and of course I got startled when I turned and saw it in my face.

  15. I constantly have dreams of black bears attacking me I’m usually walking home in my dreams its always night, but in my most recent dream there was two black bears. One bear seems friendly, and the other bear seems to want to attack me. This was the first time I’ve ever had a dream of a “friendly” black bear… I’ve had nightmares of black bears and other wild animals all my life… always attacking while I’m on my way home… does this actually mean something or is it just the fear of being attack by a wild animal?

  16. I was with someone else (I’m not sure who they were but it was a middle aged woman.) we were filming some sort of documentary about grizzly bears. The bear we were filming tried to attack us, but there was two men there, a marksman and a man with a large knife. The marksman shot the bear and the other man slit it’s throat. The bear had a den of cubs but before we could investigate, another bear came. It was maybe half the size of the first. (The first was very large more like elephant size) the smaller bear was a male. First it went up to the bear we had killed and seemed to recognize it, then it left. We were up on a hill above the den and looking down. The smaller bear left and chased 4 other bears away and into the mountains in the distance. Then it came back. First it went into the den and we were hiding and being quiet but then it smelled us and came up on the hill where we were. It started trying to get us (me and the other woman) and then the man with the knife ambushed the bear and slit it’s throat once than stabbed it in the throat except his knife turned into a dagger and the man who was the marksman had shot two arrows, one went into the bear and one went high and stuck in the ground about a foot from where I was standing. It was intense and rather scary. And totally unexpected. I knew no one in the dream, not the lady or either of the two men.

  17. dreamt a large brown bear was having fun playing in the water of my backyard swimming pool. I was watching and wanted to join the bear in the water. I do not have a swimming pool in my back yard.

  18. I have seen half dozen bears waking up and stretching, then notice my present all at once. What is this meaning?

  20. None of these definitions apply to my dream. I was actually happy to see bears lying down at the entrance of my parent’s old house. They were all lying down there as it waiting for me. When they felt my presence they woke up. They were happy and groaning amicably when they saw me approaching them. And there were babies too! I never felt fear or any threat but happiness to see them … and I knew it was mutual – any idea what this means? Would love to hear. Thanks!

  21. I dreamt all night even after I woke up and went back to sleep that I was being attacked by a bear. I couldn’t hide and it was putting my son in danger. I killed the bears with my bare hand and I cried so hard about doing it. I felt is life rip away but it was about to hurt us and I didn’t have any other choice…

    Last night I had a dream in which I killed two bears with a sword. Then the third bear appeared, but he was stuck in some bushes, so I wounded him several times and as I was going for the final strike my son woke me up. I felt sorry for the last bear because he did not have any chance, he was strangled in the bushes, but I knew that I had to kill him.

  25. Just sharing and I haven’t seeked an interpretation of any sort of this, yet!! Anyway, I had a dream that an eagle gave me a ride on its back that seemed so real. It allowed me to experience pride, conquer, and fear, and gave me a crystal clear view far and wide but I’m not sure if it was during a sunrise or sunset. The sky was glowing in orange with the sun on the horizon. It then surprisingly plunged down to the middle of a wilderness that gave me fear like no other but I was able to overcome it in a flash and enjoyed the thrilling ride of a lifetime. In the middle of a path that looked overgrown, I found myself walking on it with astonishment, nervousness, and, yet, fear again till I saw a bear come out of the trail up ahead. To my surprise, I was confident and felt no fear towards the bear as it presented itself the same way to me. I walked up to it as it waited for me. We, then, walked together on the path of a journey that I had no idea where it was leading to…perhaps, it is where I should be. I believe I am right on the right path towards it as it greatly challenging that rewards me in each of its unique way to keep me going. :D

  26. Just had a dream that I had a brown bear as a pet. I was trying to go up a stairway in an unfamiliar house, when the bear comes up n tries to attack my feet/legs. I kicked him off of me and he fell to his death. I cried over him and woke up in tears. :( So what does that all mean? Says if you’re being attacked, you’ll suffer from great damage….but then says if you kill, you’ll have success and luck…
