and the messages they bring you


Take control of your life and do it with harmony and discipline.

If Wolf has made his presence known in your life;

Is reminding us that although we see ourselves as civilized creatures – we are still animals with our own wild spirit. He is here to teach us about our inner selves and to discover our own hidden power and stamina. To see a wolf is to see a social and highly organized animal. One that understands the order of things and the balance of harmony and discipline.

When a lone wolf is spotted in the wilderness it embodies freedom. When seen in a pack it embodies a feel of community. If wolf appears to you alone or in a pack it is asking you to do the same within your own life.

A wolfs howl is primal and penetrating. The howl is used to locate clan members or to let wolves from outside of the pack know their territory boundaries. If you hear a wolf howl, this may be telling you to stand your ground and defend your boundaries.

If Wolf is your Animal Totem;

You have the capacity to make quick and firm emotional attachments and you know how to trust your insights about these attachments. You prefer diplomacy and retreat over open hostility or fights. This is not because of cowardice, this is because of a powerful intelligence. Often you maintain a network of loyal friends and family for when the going gets tough.

You are often very competitive and can become upset if the pecking order is disturbed, especially if it happens in your own home.

While seeking information and making an informed decision is a hallmark of this animal totem it is important that you don’t dally overlong in choosing what to do. More often than not, your seeking will lead you to the same conclusion that your animal intuition did in the first place.

If Wolf has come to your Dream;

To see a wolf in your dream symbolizes survival, beauty, solitude, mystery, self-confidence and pride. You are able to keep your composure in a variety of social circumstances and blend into any situation with ease and grace.

To see a white wolf in your dream signifies valor and victory. You have the ability to see the light even in your darkest hours. To see a black wolf in your dream represents your shadow. There are characteristics of the wolf that you are refusing to acknowledge or incorporate into your Self.

To dream that you kill a wolf indicates betrayal. Certain secrets will be revealed to you. If you are being chased by a wolf in your dream, then it implies that you are unwilling to confront a problem that has been negatively impacting your life. Instead you are running away from it.

To hear a wolf howling in your dream represents a cry for help from somebody in your waking life.

  • Hi there,
    I have always felt deep connections with my dreams and normally, I can figure out a meaning or two that make sense. However, this one had me a bit confused.
    I was in the country somewhere in the front yard of an older farm house.
    I looked about and saw a lone white (kind of scruffy) running back and forth in this gravel driveway, facing me.
    At first, I felt a bit timid, but then I felt a bid sad because it seemed to be young and possibly lost from his mother.
    It made me want to help him find them, but knew better not to interfere.
    Next thing I remember, across the country road from the house, there was a wooden fence post and wire fencing enclosing what seemed to be a wheat field. There, in a opening in the fence were two wolves that showed up and I was so happy thinking it was white wolfs’ mom and sibling. I was so relieved he would be okay, but then, the “mom” wolf (which was the typical wolf coloring) started bearing down on the white wolf, and then the other wolf started attacking as well. At first I thought it was the typical wolf behavior of “the order” of a wolf pack, but it then turned out too violent, and had me very upset/sad.. And if I’m not mistaken, the wolf that showed up that I believed to be a sibling, might have been black.
    I just can’t wrap my mind around this dream, and really hoping for some information if you could possibly help.
    Thank you so much!

  • :???: I have a reoccurring dream where I am alone in the woods and a wolf approaches me and I kneel down on one knee and bow. He stares back at me and does the same. We look into each others eyes for what seemed like forever and I feel an over welcoming since of comfort. Then he walks away and I normally wake up at that moment. Its like I saw his soul and he saw mine raw and true. I have had this dream since I was 16 I am now 25 almost 26.

  • I once had a dream that I was was going to a carnival and it had forest surrounding it, and on the outskirts of the carnival, I saw a lone wolf! I bet near a carnival is the last place you’d find a wolf. But there he was, only eating flies swarming around him, but he didn’t look sickly. Then I felt bad and then told the wolf, “why don’t you go into the forest and hunt a deer? Wolves like deer you know.”. Then I went to the carnival and enjoyed it for a while. When I went out of the grounds, I saw the same wolf chasing after a deer that was about to get away, so I scared the deer into going the wolf’s way. I succeed, and when the deer went down, the wolf howled in excitement. He let me join him in the feast, and reminded me that I have my part and he has his. We both felt stronger after our meal.

  • I dreamt black wolf was in bed with me cuddling as my partner. At times I accepted it, others I’d try to get away as he was heavy and suffocating but if I moved he’d move with me. I’d talk to it but all it would do was stare at me with big yellow eyes. No threat in them, just love and protection & a bit of wearyness. :shock:

  • i dreamt that a white wolf came to my bedroom window through the fog. I went to get closer but then i a was awakened.

  • So I have many dreams of wolves. This one I have been having for about a week now. It’s the same thing over and over. I’m running through a forest, not away from a wolf, but more like with it. He is a multi-colored wolf. We come to a river and he stops running way before I do, and I stop at the banks of the river. When I turn around, he is running at me, then jumps into my chest, and by chest I mean like my heart. Dreams I have had in the past include me being in the desert alone surrounded by either a single wolf, or many. They then began to speak to me in a Native American tongue. I’m confused by what they mean. Please someone help me.

    • When the wolf jumps into me, I wake up everytime, gasping for air.

      • Hello Justin: The Wolf is a very powerful teacher. Take the time to study the Wolf Totem and all of it’s aspects and incorporate his teachings into your daily life. The wolf in your dream is representative of your fear of taking the next step in your life. You are a teacher yourself and have a great deal of wisdom to share with the world. Your fear is in being wrong and in failing. Understand that there is no right and wrong – only the correct message for those who need to hear it. Failure is merely a lesson learned and we go onward to the next lesson.

  • I have always dreamt of wolves. For a long while it stopped. Now i have been dreaming of walking threw a forest dark but moon shining threw the trees and clouds. On my walk i feel i am being watched. When i stop to look i see this huge black wolf with pericing blue eyes. At first i want to run because he is huge. But i cant move my legs. I stand there and the wolf walks up to me. Circles me once and then stands in front of me and stares into my eyes with his. I move my right hand out to him he sinffs it then rubs his head into my hand i scrath him behide his ear and then he moves his head looks at me again and then turns around and leaves. I have no idea how to take this. Please help.

    • Hello Michelle: Your message from the Black Wolf is to learn to embrace what you perceive as negative traits within yourself and use them in positive ways. For instance – if you have a habit of procrastinating on things – recognize that we procrastinate when we feel overwhelmed. List the things that are overwhelming you and then simply prioritize the top five. The rest will melt away and soon everything will be caught up. So make the changes and feel good about yourself. Embrace who you are and work with yourself in positive ways.

  • In my meditation, i was in a forest at night. I met a white, slightly grey wolf. We stared at each other with understanding. I had the impression to “be brave.” I Felt the lone wolf was taking me on my next part of my journey. thoughts?

    • Hello Jr: Your Wolf is there as a Totem to help you with the next phase of your life. Keep your eyes pealed for people around you that can teach you about new aspects of yourself.

  • Hello,
    I just woke up from a dream and it was a dream filled with strangers and a black wolf. I was in this house completely unfamiliar to me and everyone was freaking out that there was a wolf attacking people. But when I went outside I was not attacked, the wolf made it’s way inside and I was still not attacked, I was frightened but not hurt. Others however were attacked. What does this mean? I used to dream of wolves as a little girl but never black or a lone wolf. I have always loved wolves and have partitioned for wolf rights, they are my favorite animal and always have been but my dreams of them are few and far between. Who or what does this black wolf represent?

    • Hello Lexi: The black wolf represents the shadow aspects of your own personality. You live in fear of unconsciously attacking others verbally – without meaning to. Always afraid of saying the wrong thing. Especially when you meet strangers. As a result you know that you come across awkward and will fail to make a good first impression. Take the time to ground yourself when meeting new people, set the intention to create a great first impression, and just go ahead and meet new people. It will take time – but your confidence will build.

  • I too was in a trance just a few hours ago, but I’m finally snapping outta it.
    I went outside to my front porch for a cigarette at about 2am. Before I sat down, I leaned over the railing because I had to spit. Before I could even open my mouth, I heard and sensed something coming closer to me and…I froze in my steps…
    There was this white wolf walking very slowly down the road towards me. He saw me at the exact moment I saw him. I felt terrified, yet protected somehow.
    He stopped dead in his tracks; his eyes were piercing me. Not in a threatening way though…It felt comforting. We stood there making eye contact for only about 2 seconds, and then he slowly started walking away. I knew my husband was still watching tv right in the front entrance, so Once the wolf was a good distance away, (but still in sight) I opened the front door and told my husband to look at this beautiful creature.
    By the time I turned my head back around to show him .. It was gone. He explained we don’t have wolves around here either, only coyotes and smaller wildcats.
    I know this was a wolf though.. He was beautiful and white and glowing almost…
    After seeing him, i came inside to try to go back to sleep, and i am just shaking off this trance-like feeling now… 4 hours later. When i awoke from this feeling my eyes were pouring tears and my hands were holding my cellphone looking at pictures. I feel like i just woke up from a deep sleep though.
    How long have i been on my cellphone? was this all a dream? What does this mean even if it is only a dream. My husband says I didn’t seem like I was sleep walking and dreaming.
    Please let me know any thoughts you may have about this!

    • Hello Emily: Sometimes we hold onto our emotions so that we don’t have to feel them. Your visit by the beautiful White Wolf gave you the gift of releasing some old emotions that were stuck in your body. It was a gift of healing. Embrace it and allow yourself to feel all the different emotions that come up for the next while so that they can be released and let go of. You don’t have to attach them to any incident or person – simply feel and let go.

  • What does it mean if I dream of a black dog or wolf that was looking at me intently the it growls sending more of its kind but its fur were brown there were six of it surrounding us ( US because ive seen myself there was 7 ME) the animals were not barking but instead they drew themselves closer to us.

    • Hello Hannahly: In the first part of your dream the Wolves are bringing the message that you have to be careful to balance your thoughts about the material world with a focus and faith in the spiritual world. You are on the right path…. keep up the good work! The second part reflect the uncertainty you feel about your path and the fear that you will ruin things through self sabotage. It also seems that you are not getting all the family support that you desire.

  • Last night when meditating for the first time in years a wolf came to me. I was listening to a guided imagery that talked about spirit guides and then she came into my vision. I thought it was a fox at first but then it became clearer that it was a wolf. When I spoke with my husband he said he thought my spirit guide would be a fox since I’m not a fighter like a wolf but it seems that the wolf means much more. Do you have any insight or advice with exploring this? I am new to all of this and am open to any input anyone has. thanks…


    • Hello Jennifer: Any animal can be a fighter if cornered. Trust your vision and embrace the teaching of your Wolf Spirit guide.

      • Hi Silken Raven. Thank you for your reply. I have been seeking more information both on-line and in my heart about this and still cannot discern which animal is my spirit guide right now. My friend who knows more about this says you can have many spirit guides and they can change over time so maybe both the fox and the wolf are trying to speak to me…I am open to what the universe, my spirit guides and anyone on here has to offer me in the form of wisdom and encouragement. thank you…

  • Hi
    I would like to tell you about an incident. I was in a trance meditation state and I saw this greyish white coloured wolf (not even sure if it was real, I mean it was glowing ghostly like). It stood there so peacefully and calm. Regal and solid. It looked every bit fierce and as I was approaching the wolf I was not scared though I acknowledged his (I had a strong feeling it was male) presence as a possible danger. And then I remember walking up to the wolf and putting my arms around his neck. His neck seemed to relax visibly and I nuzzled the wolf for a bit. He had intelligent eyes. Does this mean I have met my spirit animal guide? I was unable to get a name or anything else.

    Help me please. Thank you in advance

    • Hello Emily: You have met one of your spirit guides. It will take a bit of time to establish your ability to communicate with him. Believe and trust the messages your receive through empathy, visions, clairaudience and sentience.
