More Animal Dreams...
« on: April 19, 2011, 02:24:50 AM »
I dreamt I was inside a car, the passenger side, gazing at the winter landscape out the window.  When I see a deer near the side of the road, I exclaim excitedly, "Look! A deer!"  The car pulls over.  I'm not sure who the driver was, but I wanted to share this magnificent sight.  I swing open the door to approach the deer.  I take a few steps toward it, expecting it to skittishly sprint away as deers often do.  It did turn its back to me, as if it were about to sprint away, but surprisingly, it didn't.  It remained still, exactly in the same spot.  This intrigued me. I found that unusual behavior.  I look more closely at the deer, it's a mere few feet ahead of me.  Then I notice what the deer has noticed.  I see that the deer is interested and focused on a pure white "fox."  It looked like a gorgeous white wolf only it was the size of a fox, so I thought to myself when I saw it "It's a white fox!"  The reason I hadn't been able to see it was because it blended into the snow perfectly.  The white snow camaflouged it's presense.  I would never have noticed this white creature if I hadn't paid such close attention to the deer, and followed the deer's interest.  I had looked for a reason to explain why the deer hadn't run off (normal deer behavior) and discovered it wasn't focused on my presense because it was focused instead on this white fox.  It would have been invisible to me, had I not followed the interest of the deer, had I not paid attention to the deer's energy.  When I saw this white creature had been there all along it was amazing this shift of perception could enable me to see what would ordinarily be invisible to me.  The white "fox" and the deer moved forward, off into the winter landscape.

Horizen – What a remarkable dream. It is so nice to get a dream not worried about fears, or evil, or being killed.

I have a sense that the driver of the car, the driver or motivation that led you into a winter landscape, where everything is still, was no accident. The still landscape was a state of mind you must have touched at some time. It is a state that left you open to receiving impressions from your natural self, shown as the deer. And it was that that allowed your perceptions to shift and see the wonder of the White Fox.

I believe that any pure white animal shows important intuitive information; a meeting with the gathered wisdom you have unconsciously. This is one of the sources of religious inspiration, and many older cultures represent their origin of great learning or holiness as animals or animal headed beings. This is most likely because a great deal of innate information is held unconsciously. Our animal or instinctive self holds much of this, so communication with it can lead to enlightenment.

So I would see the Fox as an introduction to what has been called your totem animal, of special significance in your future. If you can do it, I would suggest you imagine taking on the form of the Fox, with that open quiet state mentioned, and see what comes.
