Dreaming with German shepherd protecting
On the negative side, if you dream of a German Shepherd dog accompanying and protecting you, this can mean that there is a certain insecurity and need to be protected in your subconscious.
On the positive side, dreaming about a German shepherd protecting you means that you feel completely protected and safe at all times. Thus, this feeling of security manifests itself in your dreams.
On the other hand, dreaming of a German shepherd protecting you can be a spiritual message with the meaning that there are spiritual forces protecting you at all times.
These spiritual forces possess various characteristics of the German shepherd and are therefore symbolized in your dreams in the form of this animal.
In other words, you are being accompanied by extremely loyal, energetic, courageous, balanced and committed to your well-being.
Dreaming with German shepherd attacking or barking
Dreaming of a German shepherd barking or attacking means that there is an imposition being made on his being. This imposition has the character of an alert symbolized by the barking and the urgency symbolized by the ultimatum of aggression: either you react or you will be attacked.
Thus, his/her subconscious can be charging him/her the development of the characteristics of the German shepherd dog.
That is, it is a call for you to develop in yourself a little more of the attributes of loyalty, courage, balance, energy and strength.
This kind of symbolism is very common at times when we are acting passively in front of life and we are not strong enough to react.
In this kind of dream there is a component of violence. That is, in order for you to develop these attributes it will be necessary to act with a sudden force and energy proportional to the challenge, destroying negative behavior patterns.
So if you are dreaming of a German shepherd barking or attacking, reflect on how you have faced life. See if you have avoided imposing yourself or if you have stopped being loyal, courageous, energetic and responsible.
Dreaming with a German shepherd playing
This kind of dream with a German shepherd brings a message of lightness and relaxation. It evokes the need to lower one’s guard a little and avoid conflicts, trying to have fun and open up emotionally.
Many people become extremely worried, closed and emotionally withdrawn because of life’s difficulties.
Thus, the lightness and contact with the inner child end up disappearing and the person becomes more unhappy and distant from the magic of life.
All this creates a shadow that blurs the person’s vision and they can enter an increasingly negative spiritual atmosphere that will prevent them from connecting with their spiritual side.
In this kind of dream, the German shepherd, who is an extremely strong and active animal, abandons for a while his tough guard dog mask and starts to act like a puppy who enjoys himself in an innocent way.
Therefore, allow yourself to have more and more fun and to connect with your inner child. By doing so, you will have more lightness and strength to face life’s situations with a cheerful and loving heart.
Dreams are glimpses of the reality of spiritual life in which we are all immersed.
During the dreams we are free from the bonds of the physical and gross senses and can be who we really are as spiritual beings.
So do not neglect your dreams and always be aware of their meanings. Also, try to meditate regularly on the meaning of your dreams and make prayers and spiritual practices before going to sleep.
In this way you will become increasingly aware of the beautiful spiritual being that you really are when you are not being oppressed by the illusion of matter.
