There’s a reason we use the expressions; ‘Busy as a Beaver’ and ‘Eager Beaver’. Each of these idioms reference one’s eagerness to participate in something or one’s dedication to the work at hand. Have you ever seen how hard or long Beavers will work to build their home or care for their young? It’s epic! And, so, it’s from the hardworking Beaver’s nature we derive these sayings.
So, it makes perfect sense that when Beaver appears in your dreams, it brings messages of willingness, readiness, preparedness, hard-work, diligence, and, without question, an unparalleled level of industriousness.
When Beaver comes visiting you in your nighttime visions, it is time to get ready, buckle down, and get to work in your waking life! On to that next project, or finish the project you have already started! Procrastination is out the door!
When Beaver’s industriousness concept enters a dream message, you may wake up feeling it is vibe: Suddenly you might want to get up, start that exercise regimen you have been putting off; volunteer at the local soup kitchen; make the crafts you have been wanting to finish early for the holidays!
Or you may find yourself digging the idea of a serious, most intent spring clean session ever! It is all good and you should go with the energy, act on it because it is the Beaver’s energies made manifest. The Beaver has taught you through dream narration that even work can be a whole lot of fun, especially if you are enthusiastic, passionate, and totally into what you are doing at the time!
In dream meanings, Beaver is a ‘walker between worlds’. The adorable creature is semi-aquatic, meaning it lives on land and in water. This brings the symbolism of the earth and water element to your dreams. Since Beavers are most often found in water just building away, pay close attention to the water element when interpreting your dream.
Beavers are the greatest builders in the wild! So, when you have Beaver dreams, it might parallel a time in your life when you too are building something. Beaver will tell you through dream visitations about the sacred act of building – an act of creation and an opportunity to connect with the Divine – to work as co-creator with the Universe. Beaver, therefore, brings the message of building in the physical, but also a building of your spiritual self as well. That’s right, Beavers are just one animal teaching us through the power of dreams, how to go about BUILDING BEAUTIFUL SOULS! (Which happens to be the name of the sister website to What is My Spirit Animal, and I encourage you to check out BBS with the dream interpretations, tarot information, astrological associations, and so much more available for all you soul builders!)
Beavers are amazing Earth Whisperers. Beavers create ponds by building dams, of which they impeccably maintain. The dam allows the Beaver’s lodge, also built by the animal, to remain isolated from the other lodges nearby. These animals build with sticks and mud, and allow the elements to harden the material, so everything they use comes from nature. Beaver wastes nothing. In this way, Beaver works with nature, not against it.
Finally, Beavers symbolize family, home, and hearth. If Beavers appear your dreams, this animal spirit guide might be gently nudging you to spend less time working and more time with loved one.
Now you know the key teachings and meanings of your Beaver dreams. So, stop reading already! Get to work and build your dream!
