If ever there was a complex animal spirit guide, Wolf is it. Their lore and legends are filled with tales of terror. Elusive, almost ghostly, predators that hunt in bloodthirsty packs – this is the savage population of Wolves. But Wolves are the consummate comics of the wilderness. Their commitment to and love of family is humbling, their communications skills elegant and their extreme intelligence is awe inspiring.
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” if you will. My belief is trust must be earned, do not give it freely. Pay very close attention to what your instincts tell you!
Wolves have been observed to have a highly developed “third eye” or “sixth sense”. Do you follow your instincts, or do you just follow along even if things might feel “off”? 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 own spiritual treasure chest to handle this effectively! Do you need to take a “step back” and see the situation with “fresh eyes”?
As Spirit Animal, Wolf comes to support and teach us about matters of personal power, balance, self-control and our animal instincts. Wolves are misunderstood by many to be aggressive, vicious animals who attack with no provocation, this is not so. Wolves will go out of their way to avoid fights. However, when they want to be heard, or when they want to stave off or deter an attack, they will always stand their ground.
Wolves are wonderful examples of standing in the seat of your own power. They let it be known they can fight to the death and are very well prepared to do so, but they rarely initiate combat.
Wolf is a powerful totem when you are feeling lost and don't know where to go.... Wolf will guide you, he will be your protector as you make your journey on a new unexplored path, as you gain inner sight and wisdom, experience and confidence you will bond with Wolf.

Dream symbolism of Wolf may represent that you are being called to study the art of Shamanism. Many Shamans wear headdresses of Wolf spirit animals as well as Bear, they did this to call upon the aid and assistance of the great spirit of the animal to help them manifest a particular desire.
In your dreams a Shaman may be coming to you in the form of a Wolf to help you with healing. If you dream of a pack of Wolves, you might need to pay attention to being surrounded by those that may not wish you the best of intentions.
I have become much more confident in myself and my decisions having Wolf in my life. I have other spirit animals/totems as well, but they seem to come and go as I need to learn specific things from them. If you haven't done so, take time to meditate and ask Spirit to show you what or which animals might be able to help guide you in your life, or a particular situation. I have had many readings over the years and nearly always my Wolf is right in there with me.
Above all, I suggest to really work on your intuition! Know the feelings you have and when to trust and when not to.... Animals can bring such love, intention and spirit into our lives whether they be animal spirits/totems or our own beautiful animals that we care for.
See what animal might have your best future in mind....
