I Killed a Wolf! How would you interpret this Dream?
I had this dream over 10 years ago, but it is still very vivid to me.
Chasing the Wolf
In the dream I was among a group of people, we were running along a road chasing a wolf! The wolf was very ferocious and dangerous, and we were trying to capture him by 'herding' him towards a cage at the end of the narrow road.
After a tiring chase we at last managed to get him into the cage and everyone began to cheer, they were so relieved that we had caught the wolf.
Fighting for my Life
However, they had not realised that the cage door had not been closed securely and
just as I yelled out "Quick! Someone lock the cage!" the wolf burst through the
door and jumped straight at me!!
He was huge, and looked rabid, and he went straight for my throat!
Somehow I managed to put my hands up in time to grab him around his neck and shoulders, and was able to hold him at arms length.
The wolf was snarling viciously, saliva dripping from his fangs as we struggled.
tried to help me, they just stood around with their mouths open, gawping, while
I was fighting for my life!
Killing the Wolf
With super-human strength I was able to hold the wolf away from my throat and I gradually moved my hands up around his muzzle, holding his jaws closed and then, as he struggled again, trying to shake his head free... I squeezed... tighter and tighter... and crushed his skull. I had killed him...
Immediately I felt terrible. I had killed a
wolf. I love wolves, I think they are beautiful, fascinating creatures...
besides which, I could never kill an animal. I began to cry, in fact I was
sobbing so hard that I woke myself up!
I lay there in bed crying for a quite a long while, I was so upset to have killed the wolf in my dream... I was panting too - exhausted from the struggle.
The dream had been so very vivid. I can even now, years later, still feel his warm, soft fur and hear his blood-curdling snarls. I can feel and hear the bones cracking and splintering as I crushed his skull with my bare hands...
Many of the people who have heard about this dream came up with the explanation that, in taking the life of the wolf, I also I took on the power of the wolf, the wolf sacrificed itself for me.
To me, the wolf, as an animal totem, has always stood for 'teacher' he passes his knowledge on to his family... if this is the case, then I am very grateful to have had this dream experience.
