What does a bear mean in a vision?
“Subconsciously, there's a bear in your dream to represent some situation … in your life that is very difficult to bear, or someone [who] is unbearable,” Loewenberg explains.
While different tribes have different traditions, the bear is a common thread and a symbol to be respected, representing courage, strength, confidence, and leadership.
Although you may feel silly at first, walking down a trail (especially when you have low visibility) and shouting “Hey Bear!” is extremely effective. Most of the time the bear will move to get out of your way because they are just as scared of you as you are of them.
When hiking, periodically yell "Hey bear!" to alert bears to your presence, especially when walking through dense vegetation/blind spots, traveling upwind, near loud streams, or on windy days.
The bear is used as a metaphor for the activity of both the wicked and of God. In the former use it denotes the wicked as essentially bestial—cruel, insensitive, self-seeking, and without a spiritual consciousness (Prov 28:15; cf. other passages where the wicked are described as bestial: Ps 22:12ff.; Dan 7:1–8).

The bear is associated with elemental forces, primal power, sovereignty, intuition married with instinct. There is no better image for the power necessary to face and manage fear.
