Talking about Instinct ( back to the mystic world ) :

The Strength of the Wolf

The spirit of the Wolf resides in my heart
Mostly peacefully, yet ever wild
Running in time to the blowing wind
Dancing in the clouds that drift in the Heavens.
The spirit of the Wolf resides in my soul
Longing to hear the song of the Great One

Striving to be that which I am in my natural state
Succeeding only because of the Love that the Universe grants me.

Theme from Dances with Wolves

All is Analogy ( Metaphor )

The wolf appears in many legends around the world. Druidic lore depicts the wolf as the bringer of a strong sense of faithfulness, inner strength and intuition. TheTurkish speaking tribes of Central and West Asia believe that the culture's founders were mothered by a wolf. Genghis Khan also believed he was mothered by a wolf. And in Roman mythology there is the she wolf who raises the abandoned Romulus and Remus, the twin founders of Rome. This notion of a human infant being raised by a wolf mother is echoed in many other tales. A similar theme can be found in this Shoshone Legend:
The Legend of Wolf as Protector of Women

It is told that a group of young girls had to be left behind in hiding, as the tribe had to pack up and move quickly due to imminent danger.

When the girls came out of hiding and went in search of the tribe, they came upon an injured wolf. After nursing the wolf back to health, they became adopted by the entire pack of wolves, who saved them from danger many times, as the girls continued their search for the rest of their tribe.

The warrior fathers, upon returning to find the girls, saw the wolves surrounding their daughters from a distance. Not understanding that the wolves were actually protecting their daughters, they slew them one and all.

After being told of their grave mistake, they vowed to honor the wolf as protector throughout time.

This became tradition and remains so today.
