Arlene and Bear Magic


If someone can explain this to me, I am all ears.

Whenever I dream of my daughter, Arlene, I began to understand that she represents something of magic or the divine child in my dream. She has always been that in my waking life, so when she comes into the dream it seems to be a heads up, magic is here, pay attention.

I have lived in these mountains in Western North Carolina for more than 7 years. The first time I ever saw a bear on the road in the wild was when I was bringing Arlene home from the airport on one of her visits. We came around a curve and there the bear was. She didn’t seem to mind us much, just looked and sniffed around while we watched, then sauntered off into the woods. I told my neighbor J.R.who has lived here a lot longer than I have and he said he had NEVER seen a bear like that on the road. I said, “Well, it’s because I had Arlene with me. She always brings magic.”

Then, maybe a year later, with no other such sightings having happened, I was driving Arlene home from the airport again. Again we saw bear, a mother and two cubs, right on the road. I thought, “Ok, I thought it happened because of Arlene the first time. I haven’t seen any since then and now I see them when I’m bringing Arlene up to the mountain again? I don’t think I was wrong, I think this is because of Arlene.”

Last Sunday after my daughter Josi’s wedding I was driving Arlene and her girlfriend Jacque down the mounain on the way to the airport. What did we see on the road? A tiny baby bear, so unconcerned about our arrival that he or she just kept picking at the road kill that had been found with no attention to us. We stopped and watched for several minutes.

Bear have visited me on my own porch and my own property, but I have never seen them on the road without Arlene. Can anyone explain this magic?

    Maybe bear is just letting you know you’re on the right path…(from Jamie Sams Medicine Cards) “For eons, all seekers of the Dreamtime and of visions have walked the path of silence, calming the internal chatter, reaching the place of rites of passage – the channel or pineal gland. From the cave of Bear, you find the pathway to the Dream Lodge and the other levels of imagination or consciousness. In choosing Bear, the power of knowing has
    invited you to enter the silence and become acquainted with the Dream Lodge, so that your goals may become concrete realities. This is the strength of Bear.” XOXOXTara

      Awesome, Tara. Thank you. This calmed my spirit right down. I’ve been running on adrenaline since before the wedding. All of these reminders brought me home to silence. Bear medicine so good! xo
