A bear in a dream is a very rich and complicated dream symbol. In order to understand it, objective association need to be made. Bears are solitary animals and the females are solitary mothers. They hibernate in a cave and they are generally not predatory animals.
A bear is only aggressive when provoked, and as such times he is dangerous and deadly. Bears in dreams may represent a period of introspection and depression. However, this may be a part of a healing cycle, where the dreamer has retreated into himself in order to regenerate and in order to create something new and valuable in his life. Bears are highly regarded symbols in a variety of cultures and traditions, including the Native American tradition. Carl Jung said that all wild animals represent latent affects (feelings and emotions).
The interpretation of the bear in a dream may be influenced by your perception of it and by the events in the dream.
The bear may represent qualities in your character or specific aspects of your personality. Bears are usually associated with danger and aggression, but this is a very narrow view of this powerful dream symbol. ... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

In this dream, a child may find themselves faced with an evil force or power and, as in the breathing underwater dream, just when the situation becomes desperate or hopeless, they find that they transform into a superhero with extraordinary powers. As a superhero, they destroy their enemies and resolve the conflict. Not surprisingly, this dream is more common with boys than girls, perhaps because from an early age boys are influenced by superhero role models, such as Spiderman or Power Rangers. The dream may also continue into adulthood.
The child who has this kind of dream tends to be coping with some kind of problem or obstacle; for example, financial hardship, or family tensions and conflicts, and the dream may reflect these tensions. The child may feel that they are trapped by the situation and are helpless to do anything about it; the dream refers to their desire to make problems disappear magically. But this kind of dream may point to more than a wish for magical powers, as it also shows the dreamer that within them these magical and unique powers are just waiting to be discovered....

Negative: To see blocked ears or ears that cannot hear, means that the person in question has no understanding of the truth.

Hearing is ultimately about balance and orientation and so the ears are your conduit toward being in this state.
Any interpretation of a dream that features the ears must be considered in these two ways:
What is happening with the ears in the dream itself? Then filter that awareness through the question of how this is affecting your sense of balance or understanding of where you are in relation to the things around you. When you hear what others are expressing, you are able to tap into compassion and empathy, so the ears connect to these principles in action. Of course, a dream about ears is also about how well you are listening to what your life has to say to you.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

The thirties and early forties tend to be the ones when concern about finances peak and this typically translates into working harder and longer. It can feel as if personal goals have been pushed aside, especially if you have children, and this can trigger dreams that tell you you’re feeling out of control. These often take the form of dreams of cars spinning out of control or natural disasters. These are also the years in which proving ourselves at work or making a mark on the world comes to the fore, and this can translate into dreams of competition and aggression.
Unfortunately, during this time we tend to recall fewer dreams as we feel that we simply haven’t got time to remember them or think about them. By the time we are in our forties, however, many of us begin to catch our breath and start to reflect on our lives so far. Often in the middle of our lives there is a feeling that some kind of change is essential. For example, we may explore our creative potential, go back to school, change career or partner, take up an exciting new sport, downsize and so on.
If you are in your forties, your dreams may well reflect this craving for change with their themes of adventure, romance and daring, but if this craving isn’t acknowledged, themes of conflict and aggression may feature strongly in your dreams.
The need to look back at your early promise may also prompt dreams of school, old friends or the search for a lost car. During the middle years you may also find yourself with the new-found responsibility of caring for parents with failing health. Not surprisingly dreams experienced if this is the case often involved themes of escape—part of you wishes to be free from this enormous responsibility. In waking life, you may take your duties seriously but this cannot stop your dreaming mind booking your parents—or parents-in-law—on a plane to nowhere or on an endless cruise.
If you aren’t in this stage of life, a dream about fast forwarding or returning to your thirties and forties will most likely reflect your growing sense of responsibility and longing to make your mark on the world.
One of the most common dreams in midlife is that of the lost car. You park the car and return to find it’s gone. You wander anxiously around the area but cover the same ground with no results. In short, this is a dream about feeling lost because you have followed the rules rather than your instinct or intuition.
If you have this dream, the indication is that some part of your waking life is unfulfilling and you feel as if you have lost something precious; you are not only upset when you recognize you have lost it but your life comes to a complete standstill. Another common dream at this time is that of a forgotten baby or child; in this dream, you are going about your routine as normal but hear a child or baby crying. You search for a while then discover a baby or child in the cupboard and suddenly realize that they have been in there, not for hours, but for days. You are filled with feelings of shock and regret. The baby in the dream indicates the part of yourself that was initiated and then abandoned; for example, a college education that was postponed for marriage. In other words, the child is something you began but set aside. Such dreams emerge to remind you that it is not too late to exploit your hidden potential or rediscover an idea or passion from the past.... The Element Encyclopedia
