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?

I had a dream, that my partner and I were in this retail store. A fire alarm went off, next I was running with my partner and saw two wolves,both moms. The second wolf, I touched on the forehead and all of a sudden I felt this energy go through me. I closed my eyes and I started spinning in circles on my knees, like in an aura. Then I was lifted off the ground. I could hear native flutes and singing in the midst . The Wolfe was a red color.
I use to dream of eagles and tigers and floating in the air looking down on people. Like I was looking for someone.

I had one regarding a native American last night, i walked through a forest, it wasn’t very dense i could see people at around 500 meters away. They weren’t happy, they argued quite loudly.
I walked towards them to ask what was going on and they blamed me for whatever happened which made them angry(they didn’t tell me when i asked) and they stood in front of me yelling and looking at me very angrily. I looked to my right and saw a large, bald, rich man dressed in a white suit grinning as things escalated(i didn’t know the man either)

As the crowd came very close to me, they implied i belonged with a native American man who walked towards me.
He signed me to come with him as he walked past me, so i turned around and started running with him. As we reached the edge of the forest, he pointed like i should flee the forest.
I think he said to me ”flee, we’ll meet again” so i jumped as i neared the creek that’s on the edge of the forest.. My arms started glowing orange/red and i flew over the creek and landed on the side of a freeway..

I wonder, does anyone here know what the whole thing could’ve meant?

    David – Seeing that everything in a dream is created out of ones own feelings, fears, attitudes and personality, everything in the dream is you. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/questions-2/#Summing as it explains so much.

    So the men shouting I feel shows a conflict in you about who and what you are. The people shouting are the part of your character that is very much a white man, but there is another part that has a great affinity to the inner life represented by the Native American. From your dream it seems that you are on the verge of a change in you. It doesn’t mean that you will lose the white man that I assume you are. It means that another aspect of you will develop. It is a side of you with greater intuition and vision, a link with the natural forces of nature and yourself.

    The glowing arms are an indication of the change occurring in you. It may develop into vibrations in your body occurring as you sleep, waking you. It is a natural process where Life awakens in you and starts its process of inner growth.

Last night I dreamt of a modern Native American Man. He was very large and did not speak. I felt his words as thoughts –It seemed that it was not as important what he was saying to me as how he was communication to me. In the dream there was also a sense of people who had transitioned from this world making their presence known to me. There were several o them. One slightly moved a door that was ajar, so that I would notice. I was not afraid, but it was like they were saying, yes this is really happening. Then the native Man would sort of acknowledge to me through his thinking, emotions, yes prepare, this IS happening.

I had a dream that me and my friends went to a water park, and as soon we were ready to go the buses didn’t come. It turned night, we stayed there for a couple of days until we decided to leave as soon we get to an exit I just see a bunch of natives surrounding us with spears. I and my friends ran. They trapped us and killed anyone who tried to escape. They took all of us to their town. But it was like a city of people they captured. I and my friend planned an escape. We found one and I saw my family waiting for us outside so we left with them. As we got out of their city we seen them go to ours trying to look for us, but never found us then I woke up.

    David – All you are meeting in your dream is your own fear. Whenever we dream its images are not like real life. because a dream is nothing like outer life where things could hurt you, but is an image like on a cinema screen that even if a gun is pointed at you and fired it can do no damage – except if you run in fear. So all the things that scare you are simply your own fears projected onto the screen of your sleeping mind.

    Your dream says that you were getting nearer to facing the things you see and fear in the night – the unconscious. And the natives are your own instinctive fears that you try to escape from by running. If you can face them knowing that they cannot hurt you they will become good powers. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/questions-2/#Summing

    Your family represent the beliefs and attitudes you have been raised with, like feelings that dreams and the fears they reveal are things you must run from. See http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/martial-art-of-the-mind/
