Otter

Ability to ‘swim’ with skill –  to meet the ever changing moods and feelings of water without ‘drowning’ – i.e. to meet the changing, the currents and falls of life without ‘drowning’.  It also indicate skill in seeing what is under the surface of your everyday life and mind, and the ability to draw nourishment out of the hidden depths of your mind and spirit. Ancient cultures saw the otter as a clean holy creature. In early Britain the otter was seen as a holy animal, with the ability to transfer from the land to underwater. This meant the ability to dive into the world after death, so a knower of the mysteries.

The otter is also an extremely playful creature and may be shown in your dream as your natural good spirits and playfulness.

Useful Questions and Hints:

Are you looking within for answers or strength – if so what is your dream otter showing of this?

Does your dream show the otter swimming well or badly – and how does that reflect on your life skills?

What is your dream otter doing and what does that suggest?

I had a dream where I became friends with an otter of the ocean and I decided to take her home with me.

I dreamed that I was sitting on a bench in front of a fountain. In the middle of the fountain there was a bit of land with a large tree. An otter was standing under the tree and I looked to her. She dove into the water and came out on the other side in front of me and I stood up from the bench. She held out her paw: she had a snail with the brightest white shell I had ever seen. She ate the snail and handed me the shell.

It was as if I understood her, and she understood me.

I dreamt a grey otter rushes into my house. it looks pretty happy to see me. And I also smile. Then I become cautious thinking it is going to create havoc in the house. So i try to shoo him away. It tries really hard to get back in through the door and is making protesting sounds. But I don’t allow him in. I feel really bad and torn in the dream. But i don’t allow it. I also saw some lizards running on the floor in the dream later.

I dreamed that I was eating a tin of sardines in a house with friends, although none of the friends were people I actually know in real life, just made-up dream friends.

As I was eating the sardines I noticed that they were quite large pieces of fish. There was a giant piece of tail I took a bite of, then I noticed that there was a large whole eel underneath the chopped fish.

The eel started to move and lift its head as I backed away from the tin, startled. Then I realized that to wasn’t an eel, but an otter.
It was covered in slime from the sardine tin, but it crawled out and began running around the room.

My friends and I looked on in disbelief and when it went for the screen door, I gave it a nudge to let the otter outside. My friends started yelling at me for letting it out, but I didn’t see why we should keep it captive.

    George – I feel the dream is suggesting that in some measure you are living out of a tin – an artificially preserved lifestyle. But in eating the fish, something from your real life, feelings in you, found a living experience.

    Maybe it was something that you felt that created in you a feeling of being alive and responding. The otter was an expression of something from your depths, and recognising it you gave it freedom of expression.
