Eagle Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Last Updated on

Eagle Dream Symbol – When eagle visits your dreams it is to help you see with greater clarity. These incredibly powerful, wise, all-seeing birds represent the ultimate in freedom and individuality. Eagle reminds of your own ability to see beyond what is on the surface to get to the truth. He warns illusions surround you – some of your own making and those created by others.

Eagle teaches you to tap into your intuition. Have faith in what you simply know in your heart without allowing your head to tell you anything different. Look beyond your peripheral vision and see right into your heart.

Eagle reminds you are smart so stop acting liking a mouse and show courage. You may be in conflict between what your current reality is and what you want for the future. Eagle shows you need to fly high to reach for your dreams or you will never survive the challenges along the way. Have courage to see beyond what is presented to you on the surface.

eagle dreamAn eagle caged or chained in a dream can signify your feelings of entrapment by someone or a situation. You may have lost your true identity under the spell of someone’s greater influence. Who do you allow to take your empowerment? Who strives to control you? Why do you let them take control? What holds you back from saying no to pursue you own path? Use wisdom to escape.

Killing an eagle signifies pure ruthlessness and this can be either yours or directed towards you from someone close who you trust. Are you someone who has to succeed no matter the cost? When an eagle is killed by another, it can mean you lose everything due to their ruthless actions against you.

Dreaming of nesting eaglets symbolizes you climbing the social ladder to achieve your goals of success. How you do this is shown in the feeling left after your dream when awake. Negative, anxious feelings can mean you will stop at nothing to get what you want so you can make yourself a target. Feeling positive can mean you have success through wisdom and integrity.

    I dreamt that a white eagle landed next to me on a branch and was covered in logos which i couldnt make out. What does it mean.

  10. I had a dream a couple of weeks ago that involved a lot of eagles soaring high. Yet there was one six-winged eagle that was soaring the highest and was the largest of them all. I was in awe at the magnificient sight. Shortly after a smaller eagle landed near me. I didn’t want to scare it off. So approached the eagle cautiously and curiously. This eagle did not appear afraid, rather as I began to get closer, this eagle moved forward towards me. I extended my hand and made a gesture for the eagle to come closer. At that moment I open its wings and flew towards my hand. This eagle was not to large. So its talons grip didn’t cause any discomfort on my hand and wrist. I moved it closer towards me and nestled it as if was a baby. I looked up at the sky and the eagles were still soaring high, in a circular motion moving west. I looked down at the eagle and was mesmerized by the spectrum of colors its feather appeared to reflect against the sunlight. Captivated by this I plucked on of its feathers, by which this eagle didn’t take to liking. Giving a a small unwelcoming chirp. I petted its head soflty and apologized. By which the eagle turned it’s head forward. I kept on walking and looking towards the sky and keeping an eye on the six winged eagle as it moved and soared majestically in the sky. Once again I looked down to the eagle I was holding only to realize it had turned into my little newborn baby niece.

  11. I had a dream that a human turned into a baby eagle and needed my help to protect him, so i took him in.

But i felt sad yet happy that he had to leave, i told him to come visit me everyday and he agreed, i also told him i was going to build him a big bird house and he was so happy! The weird part of this dream was that he was half human so he could change into one whenever he wanted. But i missed him when he left me. What does this dream mean??
