Hi there! Thanks for writing in.
Dreams or visions are such a fascinating story to tap into. I too have incredibly vivid and detailed dreams. Often, I can feel, smell, and make decisions within them. They used to scare me because some of them were pretty intense.
If you have an elder to talk to, start that conversation. This is a great question to ask your elders or someone from your tribe. Keep in mind that just because someone is an elder doesn’t mean they have experience in interpreting visions or dreams. Keep the conversation going and find someone you can connect with.
Because every tribe has different associations with objects or animals, what may mean one thing to me could be something completely different to you based on our tribes.
For example, owls are considered to be good omens in my Tribe (Zuni), but are considered to be bad luck in other Tribes, like with Navajo.
Dreams and visions are an important part of who we are and can be seen as a gift for uncovering messages from our ancestors. Take the time to talk to people in your tribe about them.
Best of luck!
