nine − = 3

Native American

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

If you live in America, you may have all the above associations of being touch with nature, but some people dream if 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.

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’ve had a dream several times and was curious about what it may mean. I walk up to a field and I see a lady with her back turned to me. On her back is three tatoo’s in the center is a doe and to each side are two twin white wolves. As I step closer the wolves start coming out of her back. I could tell they were protecting her but when she turned to look it was me. And no I have no tatoo’s. I also have the feeling the wolves were torn between protection and instinct. Any insite?

Please don’t think I’m weird or crazy, but I’ve been ‘hearing’ a type of chant in my mind today that goes like this (phonetically): cha-wah-humph-ah

It’s kind of a song/chant type of thing and sounds Native American in sound. It has come out of nowhere and I decided to research it on the internet..and came upon your site. Again, please don’t think me to be weird. Thanks. Gail

I dreamt of a Native American. The man seemed to communicate with me about himself without speaking.He was high in a tree lying in an old hammock, extremely gaunt, withered and old, he seemed so cold in the elements and wind, had only a tattered blanket to cover himself and no relief for his bones, no comfort. He seemed almost mummified, like he had been barely living in this state for many years. I knew that he was going to die soon. I am so very troubled by this.

I know that the dream I had last night is a warning. If its a positive or negative thing that they are warning me of I have no Ideas. It starts out with me in the woods. Im a native American Cherokee hunting for my tribe. I have two animals already that I have killed. I couldn’t describe them no matter what. My appearance is different. I have longer, darker colored hair. Darker skin tone and my brown eyes seem to be brighter, wiser. Im wearing a long sleeved buffalo skin shirt and pants with boots. Considering the outfit choice its probably winter. I was about to head back to the tribe when a rabbit caught my eye. Its fur the whitest I have ever seen its eyes a bright blue. It looked at me then hopped off. I got my bow and locked a arrow in it. I followed it to what my senses told me was No man’s land. The side I had come from was the good side and the side I was about to enter had great evil. There was a bright orange paint line in the grass separating these sides. I continued to follow the rabbit. It was so foggy I couldn’t see anything but the rabbit. It was sprinkling lightly. I was walking through a meadow type thing with woods on the edge. Even though I couldn’t see the woods I knew it was there. The Rabbit suddenly took off. It transformed into a beautiful white fox. Its eyes the same blue but this time it was staring at me. I suddenly felt surrounded. Like at any moment someone was going to grab me. I turned and took off running. Something or someone chased me. As soon as I crossed the line between my land and No man’s land I collapsed breathing hard. Whatever was chasing me was far enough away for me not to see. For some reason they couldn’t cross the paint line. I assumed at first a magical border but then.. how could I have crossed the border in the first place? Email me your answer or any suggestions or thoughts:

    Bailey – the dream, in my opinion, is not a warning but instructions.

    Being a Cherokee hunter in woods shows you in a place of nature, with a body and mind tuned to natural forces and the Great Spirit.

    Following a white rabbit is a classic sign of going on an inner or spiritual journey. Its blue eyes and pure white fur is another sign of its link with the holy – the things that are universal like motherhood.

    Then you crossed over an orange line, yet another sign that signifies refined sexuality leading to spiritual insight. The white fox with blue eyes is also a signifier. Getting close to the fox means you are getting close to the natural and responsive in you and around you – being at one with life in you.

    But being that close often causes fear because you begin to feel you are close to something enormous that you do not understand, so you ran away from what could have been a wonderful initiation. That’s okay, most of us are frightened when confronted by the Great Spirit.

I dreamed I walked out from a building and saw 5 or so people looking up at the sky at a clock. It was huge and I saw the hands on the clock speed up. The sky was blue and the clock was made out of the clouds. What does all this mean?

When I dream there tend to be a few “places” I go, usually the dream plays out in a recurring location and the last dream I had was in this valley. There’s no daylight, but it’s not night either, the closet thing I can compare it to is a solar eclipse. It’s flat terrain mostly but I can’t see that far into the distance, as if the valley is bordered by trees in all directions. I feel like there are other people in the valley with me, but I can’t see or hear them, just an intuition that other people are there. And it isn’t a sinister or evil feeling, I know whatever or whomever is there isn’t trying to hurt me more ambivalent to me than anything else, it’s just a feeling of recognition of their presence. I’m walking slowly, I try and look at things but I’m never quite sure if they’re really there, as soon as I set my eyes to focus whatever I tried to see blurs and fades into the line of trees. I thought I saw a house or cabin with a light in the window but before I can really see it, it’s gone. Then I see the two animals. One is sitting upright, I couldn’t remember if it was a fox/bobcat/coyote but now I’m pretty sure it was a wolf of some sort, and resting at the feet of the wolf is a hawk but it’s lying flat on the ground. The animals didn’t talk but there was something human about them, something in the face of the wolf maybe…but anyways, the animals didn’t say anything to me but somehow I knew that the two animals were bound together. Furthermore, I knew that the hawk would die, and another would come and fill it’s place at the feet of the wolf, forever. I came closer to the two animals and I could see the dead hawk that had come before lying underneath the current hawk. The wolf was permanent never dying never changing, but the hawk was living out its life until it was replaced by another over and over. And then the dream ended. I’m sure everyone posts their dreams here hoping you’ll analyze them, I was just curious about the wolf and hawk connection if there’s something in folklore or tribal history.
Thanks

I wanted to know what the significance was of having a dream ( or so I thought) of having a Native American stand over me putting a symbol on my forehead with their finger…I woke up enough to realize I was actually feeling the pressure on my forehead and it wasn’t a dream…but I fell back to sleep. Any ideas what this means?

    Debby – It was a dream, because dreams produce all the physical and emotions – in fact everything and more that we experience in the body. You felt it while you were awakening because at that moment the dream process broke through into waking awareness.

    Years ago I theorised that during the dream, in most people the movements being experienced only partially express through the motor nerves and muscles. I had watched a dog, for instance, make obvious running and barking movements and sounds while it dreamt. But the movements and sounds were faint. Yet in sleepwalking, the spontaneous movements and vocalisation are much more complete. So I wondered what connections existed between dreaming, sleepwalking and Mesmer’s subjects.

    So that was the beginning. The dream process could break through into waking consciousness. But it was clearer and it was healing. A long standing neck tension and feeling of loneliness I suffered for years disappeared. We noticed that as people learn the way of dropping the suppression of their ability to dream consciously, they can begin to tap the functions of dreaming when they wish. For instance, the dream process has a much fuller access to total memory and subliminal impressions than normal waking awareness. So once one has learnt to dream consciously, one can actually ask a question and have a direct response from the process.

    So the Native American putting a symbol on your head was an initiation into a wider awareness. But of course it will only remains a dream unless you access the power.

I had a dream last night that my home was being attacked by Native Americans and I was laying on top of a young man trying to protect him. What could this mean?
