Ever dream of bobcats? I did. In my dream, each of my children received a bobcat because it was time. When I woke in the morning, I looked up the symbolism of the bobcat.
This compact cat exemplifies patience. It not only scouts out its prey, but uses strategy as it waits motionlessly for the right time to pounce. It reminds us that goals aren’t accomplished by simply wanting them. It takes planning, research, diligence, and tenacity.
The bobcat is always aware of his environment. This contributes to his survival. Its behavior prompts us to sharpen up our awareness of those around us. Respect, consideration, and love will enrich your personal interactions.
Bobcats are creatures that you won’t spot on a country walk. They’re also solitary creatures, so if one comes to you in your dreams or meditation it could be a comment on the company you keep. You may need to step back and spend time alone. Time apart allows us to regroup and see things in a realistic light. It might be only a day or two from your social life, but a well needed break.
The bobcat is a playful animal. His appearance reminds us to play and not to take life too seriously. Indulge your inner child. This may also be time to break out of your usual routine.
Bobcat’s very nature is an opportunistic one, which reminds you not only to look for opportunities, but make some of your very own. The animal would starve to death if it did pounce on opportunities.
This lesser known cat is also a reminder of our hidden side, which can include dreams and talents. It’s time to unlock the hidden and bring it into the sunlight.
