Dreams About Wolves

Dreams about Wolves appear as reminders of loving, powerful and loyal people and your relationship to them. Wolves are very social and in dream analysis they symbolize connection. If Wolves walk along with you in Dreamtime, then you are being supported on your path by community and family. A Wolf close at your side symbolizes a specific person, most likely your life partner.

Wolves seen at a distance or along the edges of your dream suggest that you are longing for a strong relationship with your family or an individual. In these dreams, take a look at the people who are in the dream (connections you have) and those who are absent (connections you are missing).

Pay attention to how far you can go in a dream where a Wolf appears. Wolves are careful observers of boundaries.

Wolves hunt in packs and when sharp pairs of eyes peer out at you from the dream world then it could symbolize that you are being hunted by the pack, a scary thing! A group of people, a series of incidents or even your own doubts might be trying to ‘gang up on you’. They are surrounding you and circling closer in for the kill, but remember Wolves exclusively hunt the weak or sick animals. Do you need to find your strength? Is it time to stand up to the pack?

Living untamed lives, Wolves symbolize the wildest part of life especially for the Shamanic path. Dreams about Wolves where the Wolf is easily spooked or howls a deep throaty song to the moon, you know you are near the wild edge of nature. Untamed and unpredictable power lies here. The Wolf symbolizes this power, and your dream interpretation may find that he is there to give you courage to face deep fears.

Wolf In A Dream – Howling & Shapeshifting

Howling at the moon can also symbolize the power to awaken the Great Spirit and personal insights, or it could start you on a wild path along internet memes. Look for clear blue moonlight and careful dream interpretation to let you know if this Wolf dream is tracking the path you want to follow.

Fortunately, the Wolf’s ability to shift his shape symbolizes his ability to be flexible and guide you along the paths of the forest. Native American and Celtic customs give the Wolf the roles of pathfinder and teacher. This is true most often when he appears as the lone Wolf. He is there to help you explore the wild, deep and intuitive knowledge of yourself and your situation.
Don’t be drawn in when a Wolf seems overly insistent about interacting with you in the dream world. This kind of Wolf dream symbolizes that the trickster Wolf who starred alongside Little Red Riding Hood has come to play with you and he is up to no good.

    Dreamed of black wolf coming in my childhood window of my mothers house. It did not attack me but was not willing to leave. I the wolf managed to get through the house and I opened the front door amd it went out. I locked the door and i could feel him digging the lock with his nails and i yelled for my stepfather who passed awayI to come help me and he came. on the other side of the door I heard someone come through the passageway and then I woke up. Any idea of what this means

    I love wolves and once I had a dream I was running with them to hunt a deer or elk I think I went the opposite direction to corner it it was running towards me so I jumped on it and bit it and me and the wolves ate it together btw I’m a vegetarian and it was in a kinda desert area.

    Also I had a dream that three black wolves attacked my little brother so I hit them and I think I killed one 🙁

    Pls tell me what these dreams mean

    I recently had a dream about 3 wolves, 1 tan and 2 grey. They were circling me as I was walking along in the forest, like in a protective but playful way. The tan one was almost a ginger sort of color, and he kept looking deeply into my eyes. I didn’t feel any sense of danger, but more of a connection…like he was trying to impart some kind of meaning to me. I don’t know what, though.

    This is about a wolf, but it was not a dream, I was completely awake, aware, lights on, TV on, fiancee was watching a basketball game, everything was normal. We were visiting my mom in FL. We live in MA. Earlier that day I had a session with a Spiritual & Psychic Intuitive. Nothing was ever mentioned about a wolf or wolves. She could see my angels, read my cards, & we talked a bit because I’m an empath & a sensitive myself. I was 12 weeks pregnant at the time. She told me my “gifts” would become a lot stronger after I had my son. I also had my dog, Max, fly down with us. I trained him to become my personal service dog. Max was a Mastiff/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, about the size of a large, healthy wolf. That evening, with the lights, TV, basketball game on, my fiancee & I were sitting at the end of the bed watching the game. I heard Max coming down the hallway to me. As Max walked through the doorway he changed into a wolf, a beautiful wolf. All I could do was stare, it only lasted 5-7 seconds, it seemed longer & actually I wanted it to last longer. I thought of petting the wolf but something inside me wouldn’t let me put my hand out. I had a wonderful calming feeling, no fear or negative feelings at all. It was actually a wonderful experience. The same way Max turned into a wolf he changed back into my Max dog. I’ve never experienced this before & my “gifts” were at an all-time after my session for a few days, however I wasn’t in the right place to harness this extra, more powerful “gift”. A regret I’ve felt since. Months passed, my son was born in May, 2016. Sometime towards the end of that year it happened again with Max morphing into a wolf, but this time he was farther away, not anywhere within touching distance. This time was only 1-2 seconds long & he looked thin & very old. I had feelings of worry for him during this experience and after. I knew he was sick & it was terminal. In March, 2017, when I knew his quality of life was done, I took him to our vet & confirmed what I already knew. He was diagnosed with cancer, lymphoma, & it was terminal. He died 6 weeks later at home, peacefully. He was almost 10. I’ve always loved, admired, & respected The Wolf, even as a toddler. Although according to the info here, The Wolf is not 1 of my spirit animals, I feel very strongly he is. I’d like to know your thoughts, or anyone else’s too!

    Hi Deborah Ann, I don’t know anything about you, your beliefs, or lifestyle, but I can understand that this dream carries some weight in your mind. To me the color black means something not positive, not with the best intentions for, in this case, you. This could be a warning that you’re letting someone take advantage of you. Maybe you’ve tried to remove this person from your life. If the black wolf passed by you calmly you may be welcoming negativity into your life though not on purpose. Your door not being closed securely could mean you feel some insecurities anywhere in your life, but an insecure door can be easily fixed. I personally recommend you sage your entire home. Don’t forget the corners or darker spaces. While you sage think of being surrounded by white light, whisper, or simply say out loud a prayer, or poem you favor. Or easily tell any negativity to leave your home, it’s not welcome in any form & must leave immediately. Be very stern & commanding when ordering the negative to leave. Only positivity is welcome in your home. When you get to the door in your dream & the door most commonly used for anyone to come through, pay special attention, maybe go around the door frame a few times. Say something like no negativity may pass through this doorway, no negative person will be able to come through this doorway, only positive people……. As you sage more often you’ll find your own personal things to say & way of doing this. Lighting white candles can help. I like to do a quick sage once a month, more or less as I feel needed, & 1 longer, stronger sage the beginning of each new season. I hope my advise can help. All the best, Aly
