The Whale and Folklore
The whale is a central power animal recognized in many Native American folklore traditions that is honored and respected, especially among Native American tribes on the Pacific Coast. As a compassionate, solitary creature, the whale is closely associated with wisdom and awareness of the spiritual realm.
Whales and Dreams
The whale as a power animal blends the conscious and unconscious. When seen in a dream, the large mammal is offering guidance to help you become a mover and shaker who will take charge your life without hesitation.
Dreaming of a whale means it is time to stand up and speak up. Whales are frequently interpreted as representing awareness and intuition. It is time to turn up the volume on that inner voice of yours and listen more closely to what it has to say.
A whale’s immense size can also be symbolic of feeling overwhelmed. Maybe you have taken on too much at work, in your personal life or social obligations. It may be time to cut back some.
