      My dream was about a huge dark brown bear in the house. I was not scared - the bear hugged me, I can even remember the softness of the fur. Then he lifted me gently up. He stood on his hint legs, and lifted me on his shoulders. Again , I was not worried at all.

      Last night i had this dream... I was in the family room with a friend of mine. My husband was not there. One of my dogs was and my friend who is around same age as me 46. The kids who still live with me were home and in there bedrooms. I was standing between the kitchen and family room where myfriend sally was. I saw a big animal at the window. I was trying to see what it was then with out any Windows breaking it was suddenly in my kitchen.the table was missing. I didn't run from the bear i could tell it was hurt its back legs were dragging. I thought out had been shot. I opened my basement door and told my dog to go downstairs Which he did.then i called my daughter age 13 on her cell phone and told her to close her door and hide in her closet then did the same for my son age 17 to do the same. Then i called 911 though i don't remember the call.

      That's where i wake up. I had this dream several times last night each time i have my kids different direction s on what they should do. For example i told my daughter to in with her brother push the dresser in front of the door then go on the closet. Next time i had then go in my daughter's room where they could climb out on the roof and wait for me to get then down when it was safe.

      I had this dream the other night which i cant get out of my mind and it scares me. I had a dream of different bears mostly grizzly and panda bears. I was in a park. Most of them were dead but i did not see anyone or myself kill them. But they were lying there motionless. There was one giant bear which was abnormally large and not one you would see in real life. It was roaring and i was far away. But it did not seem to try and attack me. It was also night if that has any significance. Also my son mother and step father were in the dream as well. I would really like to know what this means. It scares me because i love animals and bears are my favorite ones. I dont understand please help thank you

      Another very interesting hub in your dream series. You've covered this so well. It seems like you make a complete start to finish.

      Lately there have been quite a few bear sitings where I live so I wonder if there are more people dreaming about bears?

      Voted this up, useful, and interesting.

      @Daydreamer13, thanks for the comment:)

      @Ruby, thanks Ruby:) Reminds me of that new show "Porter Ridge" I think is the name. Some guy has a bunch of bears. Bear dreams are not really common, I want to think that I've dreamed of them before, but I'm not sure.

      @MsDora, thank you for the comment:) Bear dreams are not a common dream that we have, probably a chance for 1 or 2 in your lifetime. However, some people do report reoccurring bear dreams. They are rare.

      @Mhatter99, thanks for the visit. LMAO Makes me wonder what they mean? :)

      Thank you for these explanations and interpretations about bears in the dream. I don't think I ever dreamt of one, and certainly don't want to, tonight--especially of being chased or attacked. I like the article. Voted Up!
