Beliefs state that the power of the Great Spirit lives through the bear, making them highly sought after guides due to their fearless medicine. The Bear has been a figure in the forefront of many Native cultures.
If you have bear as power animal, you will most probably be quieter during the winter months, which is similar to the bear hibernating during the winter. But in the spring you must awaken to seek whatever opportunities arise. Be fearless in standing up for what you believe in. You are also encouraged to use your abilities as a natural healer. Bear is linked to trees, considered to be natural antennas, joining the heavens and the Earth. Bear also has ties to the seven color rays of the Universal Light, as well as Lunar associations, linking the conscious and subconscious mind.
