keeper of the dream time

The Bear is the keeper of the dream time, and stores the teachings of dreams until the dreamer wakes up to them. Many Native American tribes have called this space of inner-knowing the Dream Lodge, where the death of the illusion of physical reality overlays the expansiveness of eternity.


  1. Always so beautiful and touching. Maggie was put to rest today. My son-in-law if grieving. He loved her so very much. They were best friends. So much sadness, Gretchen. But I will concentrate on the Bear, the Keeper of Dreams and let my soul float in bear/wonder. ❤

    • So sorry that Maggie the tiny curmudgeon has passed on from the earth. She loved and was loved. What more is there to life. I am still crying for all my lost loves. Never to be with their furriness, bright trusting eyes and their loyalty.

  3. A beautiful post and reminder to go inward now with Bear. To see and feel all that needs to be felt. 🙏🏻🌈

  4. Reblogged this on Jamie Dedes' THE POET BY DAY Webzine and commented:
    Another peace-filled painting from Gretchen Del Rio. A healing post for today ….
