Another one was about a young black leopard. I know it was a leopard because I could see it's spots in it's fur. It was hiding in a hollow tree, and my mom was there, and she went to reach in and pick it up. I told her, "Hey that is not some housecat! Leave it alone!" She was all indignant but as we walked away, the mother came on scene and luckily for us we were leaving.
I have had quite a few dreams involving totem animals and they are all powerful dreams. I started to write about my interpretation of this dream, but it strikes me personal, so I will leave it for your own. My dreams are getting ever more interesting. This morning I dreamed about being in the South West somewhere wandering around a big military installation which was mostly under ground lol. Odd as I have only even been through that area once when I was young and didn't see anything military then.
