Hawk Dream Meaning

When a hawk appears in your dream it brings you a powerful message of vision, intuition and knowledge from the spirit world. The hawk similar to eagles and falcons dominate the sky, they express their freedom in flight and control.

The hawk provides you with insight that seems to come from higher realms, it wants you to trust your instincts as it offers you wisdom and guidance. The hawk has spotted you long before you have even noticed it’s presence. I guess this is why the ancients understood this compelling force to be connected with the Gods.

Something very powerful has entered your life and it will only be a matter of time before you find out.

Hawk Dream Meaning

Dreams provide you with random images and abstract symbols as clues to decode metaphorically. This is a language similar to biblical parables, paradoxical stories that often confuse us.

When birds like the hawk swoop down in our dreams you must pay close attention to its movements as its a carrier of insight. The Ancient Egyptians understood that these type of birds relates to all seeing (Horus) that was commonly associated with the THIRD EYE – the mystical and esoteric concept of a speculative invisible eye, usually depicted as located on the forehead, increased perception beyond ordinary sight. Analytical psychologist Carl Jung believed it represented the symbol of the Self.

Hawk Dreams: Symbolism

One may catch a glimpse of a hawk in flight, on top of a mountain looking down as it glides through the valley. Its ability to navigate and work harmoniously with the wind – a symbol or message from the spirit; brings you one step closer to the truth.

The hawk will appear in your walking life, not as a bird, but a message that contains wisdom though events or synchronicity.

The hawk viewpoint gives it an advantage of what is to come further down the road. Hawks can provide you with foreknowledge or encourage you to tap into this hidden force within that has been laying dormant for some time.

Connecting the dreamer to the third eye providing you with perception beyond ordinary sight. The hawk wants you to trust your intuition by dissolving your ego and negative thoughts. Hawks tend to encourage the dreamer to trust their intuition and gut feelings – to awaken possible dormant energies held within.

Hawk Attack Dream Meaning

Often times hawks can appear to be very aggressive by attacking you in your dreams. The location and people around you in your dream are clues that will help you decode where the root of the problem may stem.

The hawk may represent people who might have power over you; authority figures, bosses and parents that pose a threat. Something that can swoop down and distract you from your progress.

Hawk may also be symbols of not paying attention to; or trusting your path. If you are not following your intuition the hawk sees you as a threat. Your self destructive nature can only see what is in front of them; the hawk encourages you to see farther down the road.

A message from your higher self or guides as you are blindly going forward in life.

I had a dream that I heard a hawk squawking and all of a sudden he was in a tree, he was huge. My sprite can was at the end of a limb and the hawk was very curious about the can. I wish I could remember more. I was memorized that he was that close to me.

Could you explain what you mean in the first sentence about the sprite and spirit?

I just woke from a dream where a hawk screeched inside my house. I was sitting on my couch and the next thing I know it dove into the right side of my neck and it was flapping it’s wings in my face. I could feel it’s bones and warmth against my skin in my dream. My partner grabbed it and forced me to hold it by the head and feet and I woke up when he began sawing through it’s neck to kill it.

I dreamt last night that a very large hawk was trying to break into our house. It was banging on the window with its beak, etc. I went out of the room and told my mom that a hawk was trying to get into the house. She went to look and it had gotten in. She was really angry.
