Our dreams hold powerful messages from our subconscious mind. These messages are most often shown in form of symbols, events, sometimes even animals.
Each animal represents a specific meaning in our psyche that can represent a message. Yes, consciously we look at animals as what they are, living beings with a different biology a part of nature.
However, the energy, character and archetype each animal possesses is absorbed by our subconsciousness, and later projected unto our human traits and personalities.
Each animal is almost like a symbol for our subconscious mind. That’s why most often animals can show up in our dreams with a purpose to share a particular message that our subconsciousness wants our conscious mind to become aware of.
When you have dreams, or even frequent sightings of one particular animal, bird, or insect, you have to be open and aware of the messages it brings.
