Native American

Natural wisdom; self acceptance and wisdom based on this awareness of ones links with the world and the intuition or wisdom of the irrational or unconscious. It can represent realisation of tribal wisdom and the link with intuitive initiations into stages of growth and entrance into the house of the ancestors. For some people it links with feelings of being dispossessed.

If you live in America, you may have all the above associations of being touch in with nature, but some people dream of being attacked and threatened. And this is probably an expression of meeting the alien in you, or a fear of strangers. The Indian can also be a guide and a wise person. See Reaction to the unconscious

Example: Dreamt that a young modern Red Indian was talking to me while walking in London. He said he would show me one of the secret nerve blocks used by the shamans. He pressed quickly the right side of my throat and tapped my forehead. Then he walked backwards away from me a few paces, and he appeared to shrink in size and diminish in age. I immediately thought this must have been the physiological method used in their magic. I seemed to remember having been shown it before by another Red Indian. He didn’t have to walk away, but looked young and small anyway. To end the effect, the Indian tapped the base of my neck in the thyroid area, and tapped my buttocks.

See: American Indian DreamBeliefs; Spirit Child; Iroquoian dream cult.

Useful questions are:

What are my feelings about the Indian or being an Indian?

What am I gaining or getting from the Indian?

If I identify with the Indian how do I feel and describe myself? (For help doing this see Stand in Role under peerdream work.)

I have the same dream a few nights in a row now, I am running through woods or grassy lands and all the sudden( like watching TV) an Indian jumps in front of my face all painted white and I wake up. It’s happened about three times now since I have moved to Arizona. It’s only been four months since I have been here. I’m not sure what it means. Thank you.

I am 60 yrs old and have always wondered about a recurring dream I have had all my life. Since a child I would dream that I was a demon and be chasing people and making sounds like out of the Exorcist. I would make the sounds out loud. As I got older and began trying to deal with my issues of self hate and fear, the dream changed to the demon being outside of myself, but still around.. Then, during a stressful few days, I dreamt that the demon was in front of me, and I knew it was after my daughter. It was very hideous, with big jaws and teeth snapping at me. I grabbed it by the throat, swore out loud at it, and killed it. I began thinking the demon signified my self hate, and a mom can pass that disease to her kids, hence I knew it was after my daughter. What do you think?
