Bear MEDICINE: The appearance of White Bear is a sign that prayers are being heard, that the sacred pipe and Spirit are being honored. White Bear signals a time of abundance, prosperity & thankfulness. Bear was the major source of sustenance for Indigenous cultures of the plains, giving meat for food, hides for shelter and clothing, and Spirit Medicine. The Medicine of Bear is prayer, gratitude and praise for that which has been received. Bear Medicine is also knowing that abundance is present when all relations are honored as sacred, and when gratitude is expressed to every living part of creation, recognizing the sacredness of every walk of life.
