A bear is a large long-haired mammal of America or Eurasia that feeds mostly on plants and insects, but sometimes flesh.
Positive: Dreaming of a bear could represent strength. Sometimes bears are gentle until they are provoked, so it could represent a familial bond and gentleness with family.
Negative: In a dream, bears can symbolize evil men, danger (if one plays dead, a bear will not pursue them, so be crucified and die daily), Russia, wicked ruler over poor people, severe vindictiveness, antichrist of the last days, end-time dominion and rule, and financial matters as in bear market.
