Native American Spirituality and Dreams

Guest Author - Parthena Black

Native American culture has always regarded dreams with great respect. Native Americans saw dreams as a means of obtaining sacred wisdom and guidance for life. It is also said that visits from ancestor Spirits occur between midnight and 2:00 a.m. which corresponds with the general belief that prophetic dreams occur between 2:00 and 7:00 a.m. during the deepest stages of sleep.

Each individual has their own totem. or special animal. This could be a wolf, a bear, an eagle, or any other creature. All animals have meaning. For instance, coyote is the "trickster" and things will go wrong, often in a humorous way, when he is around. A totem appearing in a dream would indicate that something of special significance is being examined. The totem might be trying to guide the person to a decision, or perhaps warning the person of a danger. Totem animals have distinct purposes, such as "message" totems or "journey" totems. Different totems may appear during different phases of one's life. It is also believed that the totem Animal will continue to appear until the dreamer deals with the problem or issue.

Most Native Americans also believed in dream Spirits which helped Watch over all dreamers and provide assistance. One of these Spirits is the white deer. The deer was extremely important to many Native American tribes, providing both food, clothing, and material for tools. Native Americans respect all animals and if an Animal must die, a prayer is said over its body and no part is wasted. The dream spirit of the white deer would help guide the dreamer to a destination or action.

Another common dream symbol was the white wolf. The Wolf was seen in a protector role, watching over the dreamer and keeping him from danger. The appearance of a white Wolf could warn about a danger that the dreamer had not paid ample attention to.
