Eagle

The eagle can represent several things, depending upon its context in your dream. It can point to the powerful, strong hunting instinct in business or in being a providing parent. It can depict protective strength; a male figure; relentlessness. Dominance or a male figure. It is certainly an uplifting power of feelings or ideas, a protective influence.

Because the eagle, like most hunting birds, has an extraordinary far reaching and inclusive gaze, it can link with the ability of your own mind to at times expand far beyond the immediate sense impressions and concerns, to include years of life experience, and what you have learned when looked at as a whole. It can therefore represent spiritual vision. This is because the height of the bird and its steady gaze give it unusual perception and wide awareness. To touch such enormous wealth of experience is to be penetrated by the holy. Something so beyond the limitations of our own small personality enters us and leaves its imprint. See: Birds.

Sometimes it is seen as a threatening influence, if it is seen as connected with carrion. But if so it is you fears you are dealing with. Because it is a bird of prey it might appear as a threatening influence. Also this wider awareness may at times feel as if you are ‘carried away’. Being lifted into the unknown in this way can cause unwarranted fear. See The Life Will ; Dreams are Like a Computer Game

In some dreams it represents love, and its death or destruction can mean the death of love – as occurs in divorce. Cayce says that teenagers at a critical stage in life sometimes dream of an eagle pecking or tearing at their heart or thymus area. He says this represents the emotional entanglements that youngsters are subject to and incapable of understanding.

The Egyptian god Horus is a hawk or falcon, and was called the ‘all seeing eye’. This was because it represented the higher function of the unconscious to see all things.

Also the Hawk of Achill, or Seabhag, was one of the first animals to come into being according to Celtic mythos. He has an immense memory and is said to live a very long time. He represents knowledge and the search for it as seen in the poem The Hawk of Achill. He is an ancient bird, over 5,000 years old easily at the time it was written. He is also, as many birds are in mythology, a messenger between the realms. This means he can travel from this realm to that of the otherworlds of the myths he exists in. See Myths and Legends

Example: I was gazing at the sky and the stars, looking up to the sky. The stars were shiny and yellow gold similar to the colour of fire. There were a couple of stars similar to shooting stars but they almost looked like tiny pieces of fire display, like fireworks. It looked beautiful. Soon after the dream shifted to a computer screen and I was checking my emails. I was scrolling down the in box and then clicked on a message thinking ‘why didn’t I check this before?’ the message appeared with a picture of a huge bird and it looked like a Eagle (but the colour was white with a bluish/black outline) with its wings fully spread and moving as if the Eagle was flying; and there was a message underneath in tiny English letters which I read something similar to ‘ your life is going to transform’- I can’t remember the exact words but it was something similar to this and then I woke up. Could this be a message for the future /a prediction/ a omen?

Idioms: Watch like a hawk; eagle eyed; like a mother hawk; watch me like a hawk;

 

Useful questions:

What do I know and feel about eagles?

How was the eagle portrayed in the dream?

Does this have something to do with keeping a ‘sharp eye’ out for something?

Is this about nobility, power and freedom?

Have I experienced an overview, or bird’s eye view of a situation?

My dream, I saw this eagle soaring, it was beautiful, but I wasn’t certain if it was an eagle, he landed so I could see him clearly and then took back off. Very pleasant dream. I seem to dream about eagles often and they’re all pleasant dreams.

In my dream I woke up and in front of me in the dark on the table was a Raven looking at me I felt uneasy that then I heard a loud eagle look to my left and right outside my window was a huge eagle when I turn to look at the Raven again it was gone. It felt very symbolic.

In my dream I saw a large salmon. I wanted it. As I zoomed out of focus I was high on the peak of a mountain. A little startled at first. But, I wanted to soar. So I did. I was an eagle.

I dreamed that my wife, a baby and I were laying back on the seats of an open top tour bus stopped on the side of the road at the base of a tall cliff. As we gazed up my eyes focused on some birds perched on a tree at the top of the cliff. I got my binoculars to get a closer look, and realized that one of the birds was an huge shimmering bald eagle. I was elated, because I’ve never seen one before. It cocked it’s head down and made intense eye contact with me. Then dove at us. We braced for an attack and hid the baby. But the eagle landed on us lightly clasping around my and my wife’s wrists with velvety grey talons. The baby wasn’t scared. The eagle and the baby shared a look.

I am hoping you can help me get clarity on this dream. I only remember parts of it, but I was in my childhood home in the basement where we used to play as kids. I was an adult as I am now, i remember seeing a huge white eagle approaching me, nudging me, and gently circling me as if it wanted me to hold it. I put out my left arm and it lands on it and proceeded to cuddle. This huge ominous bird wanted me to hug it, so I did. It then wrapped it’s huge wings around me. I felt love and intimacy emanating from it. I felt protected and loved somehow. In my current life, I am on a spiritual path of discovering who I am and my true purpose. I am at a crossroads with my career, and a marriage of 23 years. Can this dream possibly tie in to any thing in my current life?

    Roseanne – Were we used to play as kids in dream represents the childhood of the human race.

    “There used to be a large pool by the house in which we all bathed when young.

    I started exploring the pond, and had the most unexpected set of fantasies and feelings bubble up from within. The garden when we were children referred to a condition of mind, which I now experienced, in which a group shared a common awareness, and felt at one with their environment. In other words there was no separate identity. No one in the group knew themselves as an individual. I knew as I experienced this that it was about the early condition of human beings.”

    The basement represents going just below everyday awareness into your inner world. See http://dreamhawk.com/inner-life/inner-world/#MakesInner

    From there you are in touch with the wonder within you. Shown by the image of the huge bird – and the image meaning that you have the possibility of the eagle’s vision. Because the eagle, like most hunting birds, has an extraordinary far reaching and inclusive gaze, it can link with the ability of your own mind to at times expand far beyond the immediate sense impressions and concerns, to include years of life experience, and what you have learned when looked at as a whole. It can therefore represent spiritual vision. This is because the height of the bird and its steady gaze give it unusual perception and wide awareness. To touch such enormous wealth of experience is to be penetrated by the holy. Something so beyond the limitations of our own small personality enters us and leaves its imprint.

    You are loved and protected always, but we lose sight of it when we are facing the crossroads of our life experiences – necessary but difficult. Your dream came as a reminder of your path you are on, and the love and protection you have.

I had a dream last night that I saw a man taking eggs out of an eagles nest, I shouted at him to stop. The eagle came at me but I was able to get him away without getting hurt. After that I felt the need to help this eagle… idk if I was trying to return the eggs or what, but I brought him a bug to snack on and he flew down to land in front of me for the bug. After that he crawled into my arms and cuddled like a cat would. I think he even turned into a smaller version of itself.

    Patricia – Because all the people, animals, and places you see in your dreams, are simply your own feelings, fears, hopes and wonder projected onto the screen of your sleeping mind as images. So, it makes sense to take the image of your dream person, thing or animal back into you and own it. In that way, you are meeting and dealing with the things about yourself you are not owning or conscious of. It is therefore important to find out what the nest robber was doing in your dream. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson

    The image of the huge bird – and the image’s meaning is that you have the possibility of the eagle’s vision.

    So your care and protection of the bird has brought it more as a working part of you. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/brain-levels-and-dreams/

    Your care appeared to allow it to take on a more baby form, in dreams it may mean the bird is allowing itself to grow in a new way – maybe less aggressive.

I had a dream that our neighbors were going to babysit my daughter. I leave to go out on a date and I see Emily at the corner of my eye climbing down a hill. I run over and done to save her because she almost fell off a cliff into water. Next thing I know a huge bird is swooping at is trying to take Emily away from me. There’s a random door and we done in there and my date closes the door so fast so the bird couldn’t get us… It was my dates houses’ under ground tunnel. Then I woke up. It was so scary!

    Eryan – Your whole dream is about your anxiety about caring for your baby.
    Your love and care for your child or children can trigger your mothering instincts with a vengeance. Being female and a mother holds with it an enormously increased anxiety about your children. You see all manner of things that might be a threat, and I believe that is what such dreams show. Your imagination for such dangers is enormously increased. This is natural in all mammals, and acts as a warning making you aware. It helps to check whether your child or children are okay, and if they are, say to the part of you that is worried, “It’s okay, I checked, but thanks for keeping me on my toes, you can relax now.”
    When my son Leon was working for a year prior to entering Cambridge University, he met people who owned wolfhounds, and often walked the dogs. I went with him a couple of times. The dogs were kept in a large pen, and owner went to get the keys for the pen. While we were waiting at the door one of the dogs, a bitch, was kept in the house.
    The bitch came to the door to look at us, then ran back, only to reappear again a few moments later to look at us anxiously. This was repeated a few times. I asked my son if she had pups and he said yes. So as soon as she saw we were strangers she rushed back to her pups to check they were okay. Then, for the short period we were there she continued to come and look at us with obvious tension, and then run back to check her pups.
