Courage is the gift from the Bear. The Bear represents courage because of its strength and natural ability and potential within to overcome challenges and face its fears with confidence and bravery.
The bear reminds us to have the mental and moral strength to face ourselves, to stand up for what you believe in, and also for those we love with the same vigor and will as a Mother bear.
The bear also reminds us how to live a balanced life. Just as the bear hibernates during the winter and reawakens each spring, we too need rest and rejuvenation. There is a time to be playful and a time to be courageous.
