For the last few days, Dave and I have been seeing wolves on our path, on television and in dreams. We are firm believers of the American Indian tradition of animal totems. So, after seeing the wolf twice, we quickly looked up the meaning. Here is what we found:
Although their lore and legend is filled with blood-thirsty tales of terror, Wolves are the consummate comics of the wilderness. Their commitment to and love of family is humbling, their communication skills elegant, and their extreme intelligence awe inspiring.
And these traits are only the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
Wolf symbolism and meaning is rich and multidimensional.
When wolf appears in your life it may be time to take a close look at a person or situation who may be a “wolf in sheep’s clothing.” Trust is earned, do not give it freely. Pay close attention to what your instincts tell you.
While this Wolf symbolism seems negative, consider that He is an omen of something you’re not seeing. Wolves have been observed to have a highly developed “third eye” or “sixth sense”. Because you’re seeking out Wolf symbolism and meaning, perhaps it’s time to work on cracking open your intuitive senses.
Wolf is also very smart, loves autonomy and has a strong social character.
When you walk with Wolf you’ll discover your intuitive nature blossoming alongside a healthy sense of self confidence. Remember, your soul still remembers what it feels like to be wild and free – to trust your feelings and choices! Look at the ordinary world in an extraordinary way!
Wolf sometimes appears when we face challenges for which we feel less than prepared. Wolf reminds you that you have all the tools in your spiritual treasure chest to handle this effectively. Take a step back and see with fresh eyes.
Today, Dave and I were headed to a family gathering. On the way off of a busy Interstate Ramp, we had a big blow out, flat tire, forcing us off of the side of the road. I have only changed 1 tire in all of my 57 year, and Dave has never owned or driven a car, so neither were prepared for this.
As luck would have it (or a spiritual lesson), I had transferred my insurance and my roadside assistant last month and never replaced the roadside assistant part of the program, leaving us to change the tire in the middle of trucks passing a steep turn at the top of a high altitude exit at 80 and 90 mph… The weather was a steamy 99 degrees. And we both looked at each other as if to say, “where do we begin?”
I had an entire load of junk in my trunk. The spare was below.
We unpacked the trunk, got the tire and what seemed like a 2 inch jack and began our descent into hell. After we got the old tire off, the jack broke, and we were left with not many options.
I had remembered that the last insurance agent mentioned that my lease may have included roadside assistance already, so I called inquiring about it with the backdrop of a loud interstate. I could barely hear the assistant. We needed to make arrangements for someone to help us, including, perhaps a policeman to put up road block to keep us safer.
Making matters worse, one tire was off and the other tire wasn’t on, so the car was out of balance. We were both afraid that if we turned on the car and got into the air conditioning that we could tumble the car.
One and half hours later, we had roadside assistance change and fix the flat, as it was a nail in the tire that we had apparently run over.
As we were driving home, I had remembered Dave praying, “Wolf guide, help us. Angels protect us and lead us to a perfect outcome.”
I also remembered that every time I communicated with Dave, I tried very hard not to be harsh and tough on him with my accusatory voice, which I tend to get when I’m in a tense situation.
All in all, we had a very successful and powerful afternoon with the wolf helping us to overcome some issues in our relationship and gain trust in Spirit to guide and lead us in all situations.
I needed to nap for 4 hours to reset my mind, but after the nap, I felt as if the day had been a good one.
