Spotting an eagle is a very rare sight these days. When the eagle has appeared in your dreams consider yourself lucky. Eagles in dreams are highly symbolic birds that represent vision, strength and higher consciousness.
This powerful bird has specifically come to you during a specific time in your life. The eagle acts as a messenger possibly from the spirit world wanting your attention. When the eagle attacks be sure to be on high alert. The size relates to the importance of the hidden message – the bigger the better.
Before we jump to the gun to what an ‘eagle’ may represent in your dreams we must first be able to identity it characteristics and apply them metaphorically in your life. Eagles are very complex profound symbols that may connect to success and higher powers.

Eagle Dreams: The Apex Predator
What makes the eagle such a mighty symbol relates to them being on top of the food chain, with no natural predators. This alpha bird may be representation of your true inner strengths that are laying dormant inside, similar to the hawk they are stealth flyers that see you before you see it.
The eagle are known to be one of the strongest birds with the ability to carry the heaviest loads. Could this represent your ability to carry more than others?
Eagle Dreams: Outstanding Vision
Another metaphoric symbol would be directed at the eagles eyesight. The size of the eagles eyes and pupils are extremely large are very large compared to the size of their heads.
This symbol alone suggests you might be able to see things that others cant. Eagles see in five main colors, whereas humans see only three. A sign that you have the ability to look beyond what the eye can see, a possible connection to your intuition. Alternatively, the eagle encourages you to explore and develop these senses.
A Message From The Spirit Realm?
Despite being able to see far away, eagles have a close connection to the spirit world. The Natives understood that these magnificent birds appear to be sacred as a sign of the Creator.
They are symbols that encourage you to follow your spiritual path, to connect with your true self. The ability to fly high in the air, high above you is symbolic to higher consciousness.
Another interesting connection is its relation to the wind. Wind is often translated in dreams as the spirit/shifts/changeability used as force we can feel but cannot see. The eagle moves in harmony with the wind as if it encourages you to let go and trust the movements from above.
