In the realm of dreams, a buffalo may be a representation of the Jungian archetype of the 'Self' - the integrated psyche, embodying both conscious and unconscious elements.

It's a complex concept though... It signifies a call for introspection and self-understanding. Being in a place where buffalos reside, by contrast, may symbolize the collective unconscious, a reservoir of shared human experiences and archetypes. It suggests a need to connect with the broader human experience, to understand one's place in the world. Both of these dreams, therefore, point towards a journey of self-discovery and personal growth, urging the dreamer to delve deeper into their psyche.0
