  • In the beginning of my dream it was announced that there were two black jaguars on the loose so be on the look out. The funny thing was, was that I seemed to be the only one who heard the warning. All of a sudden I was in a room with two celebrities getting ready to go out to the club but they didn’t want me to go with them and an inner voice within myself said “you don’t have to hang with celebrities to get noticed. Everyone is a celebrity in their own right, you just have to be confident! So when you get dressed up be confident in yourself and others will stop and stare. Its all about confidence, everyone is a celebrity in their own right.” This phrase would be said many times throughout my dream with me either telling myself or telling someone else. Then I left and was home with my family. My sister decides to leave to go and get some friends she wanted wanted me to come with her but I decided to stayand wait for my male friend (A guy I’ve been casually dating for four months) I warned her of the two jaguar on the loose.when my friend arrived I asked if he saw the jaguar that were on the loose and he said no. I was afraid to go outside and was always looking around for the jaguar. When I finally decided to go out, I saw them they were chasing someone caught them and killed them they seemed to be stalking the neighborhood I was in which was along some railroad tracks they didnt stray away from those tracks. I wasn’t that far away from home when I saw them attack someone again, and then they attacked my sister some how I knew she was dead. I started to run down the street toward an elementary school where parents were dropping off their children. The jaguars spotted me running and started walking along the tracks. As I made it to the school I warned everyone to get inside because the jaguar were coming. As I closed the door to the school I noticed that me one other adult and about 6 children were in a room with no windows, but I could see where they were on the outside of that little room. One was at the door and the other was on the side. Somehow they were starting to come in this room, everyone in the room was calm except me I was scared. Then I woke up and was lead here. The whole time I saw these two jaguar they were side by side and moved as one in all their actions the only time they separated was around that room. I never heard them growl roar or anything they were completely silent. This is the first time I’ve ever dreamed of these animals. Please any feedback would be much appreciated.

  • So relieved to find this site! I dreamt for the first time about a black jaguar maybe a year ago and it’s been coming in my dreams lately. The first time i remember I wasnt scared of it. It took my arm by its mouth and walked me across the street. Last night’s dream, it was coming out of the water but sitting there in the night time just staring at me. The night looked majestic.

  • It’s been wonderful to find this out as many years now I’ve always seen cats in dreams but never clicked it until recently. I’ve always ran low but very fast paced and thought I was a cheeter when travelling but recently I had a dream of a black animal and it was looking at me while my daughter was on the bed in ththe dream and I knew it was safe but it would explain the shape shifting as didn’t fully reveal its self. Me and my partner have always felt an big footed animal coming to lye on the bottom of our bed but wouldn’t of guessed it to be a panther! I think now that I know this I will be much more respective but even describes me down to the tee with the behaviour, something recently happened and this person as much as I feel that I should justify for what she done I feel that when the time is right that’s when I will bite to stand my ground but like a panther does. I love the messages it means as I am going through a transitional phase at the moment and it’s very hard to see light at the end of the tunnel but knowing what these messages mean I understand more and will try to focus on more positives. Great article and one to always believe in x

  • I had a dream a black jag was my pet and i had some trust issues whether the jag would inflict harm towards me but i quickly realised i could trust him and he meant me no harm, it brought nothing but peace and calm to my mind. then a man came to kill me and my jag was the first to leap to my defence and i shot the man dead but he killed my jag going down with a gun. i was crying so hard, woke up feeling like a deep pain. what does this mean?

  • I had a dream that I was eaten by a jaguar, I was scared previous to that then I surrendered and while in her mouth i felt very comfortable and loved.Then I became the jaguar myself.

  • Last night I had a dream that we had a black panther as a pet. At first I was somewhat afraid of the panther but when looking at it I felt loved and protected. The panther showed some dominance over our dog but would release on command. It was not to hurt but to show it was in charge. The panther was also able to communicate in words with me. Not speak but telepathically I could talk to it. At one point, I let it outside and it jumped on the fence to follow a bird. I was afraid it would run away and be harmed but it came back inside when I called it. It was hungry and I fed it then woke up.

    • Susan, the black panther is your own inner female self-survival skills. It is your protector just like people own a dog to protect their household.

  • I had dream and the feelings have stayed with me. I came across a black panther and at first I felt frightened but then I looked into his eyes and felt so much love and that he was part of my soul. The connection was so strong and then the panther was a man but he died and i was beside myself, it felt like part of me was gone.

  • Hi,
    I had a dream that I found a trapped jaguar underground in a tunnel. I opened the barrier and set out some food for it. Later in my dream the jaguar came to me as a friendly cat. Pressing its head onto my body in a loving manner. I hope this is a good thing.

    • Sarah, the jaguar is yourself. The underground and tunnel represent the huge expanse (subconscious) below your conscious mind. You walled off this portion of your self for unknown reasons. Now you are getting in touch with these attributes within yourself. Look at the tags under this highly skilled animal. Beautiful.

  • I had a dream that my brothers ran away from me. Then , as I was looking for them , I came across a large Jaguar. I was kind of scared so I walk a few steps to my side and saw a large lion . Both lion and Jaguar came together and seemed calm with each other’s presence. I’m not sure what this means but hopefully someone can help me understand it.

    • Your brothers ran away but something more powerful, secure and protective just came into your life. The Power Animals of the Black Jaguar and Lion. These big cat power animals are an awesome combination. Imagine that you already possess the power, strengths and characteristics of these two top predators. You are controlled strength and will power. You have personal charisma. You have the ability to influence the thoughts and actions of others. And these are a few of the traits and skills you are getting from the Black Panther. There is no need to fear the future now! Be your Totems. They came for you!

  • Amazing how my intuition has me look these spirit animals meaning just at the exact time they are needed. In other words, they always apply to my current situation.

    • You inner guidance is showing you the way to your true personality and personal power. Once you step into the power of the Nine (your nine power totem animals) you will know what true power feels like. How you use your power is up to you. Will you use it for your benefit and the benefit of others, or will you misuse it and create more karma for yourself to work off next time. Choose wisely, my friend.

  • OMG so I just stumbled onto this website. I closed my eyes and did everything like it said on the previous page that brings you to your animal AND I envisioned a big cat in my mind! It wasn’t a black jaguar but still, how crazy is that.

    • Not crazy at all. You just told us that you are clairvoyant. You have a natural gift for it. Don’t discount it, but praise yourself. Develope it. It is a great gift that can be of great benefit to you and other people as well. You can do much good with that gift.

  • hi all, so i had this dream of being on some sort of open grassy area which were abundant with cats, the domestic sort, amongst which were a number of my pets who had passed on. there was also the distinct presence of two immense and beautiful black jaguars. i was not scared but rather wary of their presence and was more traumatized at what they might do to my beloved pets rather than myself. i remember even picking up my a couple of my babies and reassuring them. they wouldn’t settle though and it bothered me. also saw my mom whom i argued with and my dad whom i ignored, all this being completely out of character for me. somewhere in all this i received the news that my ex husband, with whom i get along very well, had been killed. this also added to my sorrow. i somehow knew though that it was a lie about him dying. all the while the two panthers were there, sort of by my side but not quite. i felt like they had either come to fetch me or guard me but never to harm me. i have recently been very awfully betrayed by a friend whom i loved as a sister. might the dream be connected to the hurt i feel at what has happened? i do no longer feel like i can or should trust her. it is bugging me way more than i initially thought. thank you kindly

    • What a fantastic dream and I’m so amazed that you could remember so much because it says so much about you and what you’re going through right now. You are right, the black panthers are there to protect you and guard your inner child. It is your inner child that is hurting. In all the instances that you mentioned, it is the inner child that is wounded. The black panthers are there to help you heal her. To have two show up though is amazing. This tells me that it was probably a male and a female. This is so beautiful because the message is that to heal your inner child you must reparent both the mother and father. I’ve done this and it is so fantastic. It works best if you can choose “one” instance with each parent, one at a time, that had ill, long lasting effect on you. Then you replay the scene in your mind but instead of repeating what mommy or daddy dearest said to you, you say what you wanted and needed to hear at the time to give you the love, support, nurturing that you so much deserved to have, in order to give you a sense of security. Do this over and over and over again with each and new episodes every time. Good luck. It’s not that much work to do. Do one everyday and heal the inner wounds. Heal the inner child and you heal you. The inner child is where your creativity and joy of life rest. Love you, love your inner child back to health and strength. Love little SUMEIYA.

  • I made myself jump yesterday 😂
    I was sorting out stuff in the bathroom & out of the corner of my eye I saw a black panther, when I looked again it was a black pair of trousers underneath the sink pmsl 😂❤💡xxx
    Just read what it said about a black panther & I can relate to what it says 😊

    • Yes, the black panther is stalking you. That’s one of its best characteristics. It’s telling you that you have this ability as well. You may be the person you holds back in the shadows until the right moment then pounces at what you want. But you must learn how to control it too so you don’t startle people too much. Everyone’s a little jumpy right now. But the panther is inviting you to step into its power. I wouldn’t hesitate if I were you.

  • This encounter was unick in that apoun aeakenning one morning on the edge of the wassamasaw swomp of South Carolina, I awoke to the sight of a black panther laying on the hood of my red caravan. At first I thought I was seeing things. Went to the kitchen and got a cup of coffee. Took a look out side and it was still there, swishing it tail. It stayed there for about 15 minutes. Then the beautifull black panther walked like a goat into the swoop. It was aesome.

    • Praise be that there are still black panthers in this country. Thank you for that report. And praise be to you who can live so close to nature that a black panther would come to visit you. My.

  • On 11 November, at 5:00 am, an armistice with Germany was signed in a railroad carriage at Compiègne. At 11 am on 11 November 1918—”the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month”—a ceasefire came into effect

  • The panther has always czlled to me, even before I knew what she all meant. One night in a dream, she told me her name, Meesha. She is always with me, never leaves, and guides me. ❓

  • I also had a dream of a black panther. I was in a forest and for some reason I was looking at a lion and telling myself that it had to kill the black panther, which the lion finally did. The section on “paying attention to my surroundings” clearly makes sense, as in the dream I could see the black panther and was asking myself over and over where was the lion since I considered the panther a threat. On waking up, I felt quite sorry for the panther as in the past it’s come to me as a totem so not too sure what to make of this dream.

    • Lion is the roar, being vocal, the black “panther” is a silent and loner. Maybe you would like to be more social and cooperate with the group? One knows how to explore alone and likes other company but in the end prefer itself. The lion needs social attention and cooperation to eat and live. So maybe your subconscious is nudging you to be more social? Maybe you are divided between both.

    • It could be that you were seeing the death of an old totem and the rise of a new one. Perhaps black panther’s work with you is over and you’re aspiring towards a new totem, the Lion. It’s time to be the Lion. Let it roar.

  • In a dream recently I was in a semi cartoon and anime looking landscape where I was looking for a parakeet (don’t ask, I don’t know) and I went into one room that I have my algebra class in. I got up onto a desk to see into a large storage area above the ceiling to see a machine of some sorts crash out to my left that nobody noticed, then the version of Cyborg from the original Teen Titans when he had a virus making his body red dropped a box spring on me and nobody noticed still. The scene zoomed out, away from my body, and I saw myself being crushed by the box spring until that version of Robin threw it off and flew out the window to do whatever. When I got up I looked to my side and saw a big black shape with red eyes staring at me before starting towards me very quickly, then I woke up. Any suggestions for this? I think the black creature at the end was this animal, so I’m very confused on it.

    • Seems like a lot of shadow imagry, meaning the shadow shows us the BIG lessons of life we are here to learn (never easy ones; there will be nashing of teeth). It was interesting that it started with a bird (a wing’d one-parakeet) and ended with a wing’d one-a robin. That is significant because they represent the air element, spirit element, higher consciousness, etc. You are in search of your spiritual self and your spiritual self will rescue you and save you. In the mean time you feel like a no-body that views the world as a being controlled by mechanisms instead of by MIND (a central mind, a loving spiritual energy). You are threatened by this mechanism (the Cyborg) and it is killing you. The only thing that can save you is your personal recognition that you are a spiritual being (the robin), you are an eternal divine being, that everything God is you are too and of course that Mother Earth is a spiritual being as well. The black shape is your shadow. Do not fear it. It is your greatest teacher. Learn well my friend.

  • So I am writing a book with a focal point being people who are strongly connected to their spirit animals and from those connections gain supernatural abilities. The panther/black jaguar is one of those spirits focused on in my book, but iam having trouble thinking of powers to give to this particular spirit. IF anyone sees this, could you please take a moment to reply to this comment with a list of up to 3 powers that you think would be best suited for someone whose spirit animal is the black jaguar/panther? Thank you!

    • I’ve done some research on this and apparently generally the black panther’s powers are shapeshifting, clairaudience and claircognizance, among other very powerful traits

    • You’ve probably got all you need but the black panther is my power animal in the South direction. It seems to hold back more than other totems waiting in the shadows for me to call it. These are some of the personality traits that I have become because I have embraced the black panther as my power totem animal spirit guide.
      • I am able to sense the feelings, energies and intent of other individuals
      • I am fearless of the unknown
      • I have the ability to track the unfamiliar territory found on the journey of self-discovery
      • I can embrace the unknown and flow with the mystery that is unfolding in my life.
      • I am the one who leaps empty handed into the void with implicit trust going deeper into my own self-discovery and healing process.
      Love to read your book sometime. Good luck!

  • Hello… I have recently had a dream where I was living with my fiance and our child in what looked like an apartment/house and from what seemed like nowhere, a black panther walked into view. On our patio, which was gated, laid my fiancé, sleeping. And so, the panther walked over to her and laid down on the other side of the gate, mirroring her position. I was freaking out, and this panther placed a paw up on the gate and pushed it into the ground, where I had proceeded to jump on it because I was afraid that it was not only going to get my fiancé, but my baby son as well, who was sleeping on his crib down the hall. I fought this panther and no matter how much strength I had to keeping it back, it fought me all the way to my son’s room. I grew angrier and more scared, as did the panther. I don’t know what to make of this dream, though it is still rather emotional for me to replay in my head.

    • Thanks for sharing your dream! I had a dream that might offer another perspective. In it there were two panthers in front of my home – one was tawny and I was not afraid of it. One was black and I was so afraid of it, ashamed even, that I tried not to let it see me, though it was looking at me, and I went into the grocery store next door instead. I felt the tawny one was masculine energy, and the black one feminine energy, and that I was avoiding my own feminine energy at the time – it is 11:11 pm by the way as i write this 🙂 When I read YOUR dream, and apply this perspective…is there a feminine energy that is scaring you wtih regard to your son and fiancee? Maybe it is a part of you that you are fighting. Why were you scared of the panther? Was it really dangerous? It doesn’t have to be, just because it’s a panther. Just like sometimes snakes can be harmful and sometimes healing. Sometimes we can be terrified in dreams, but it is because it represents a part of us that we don’t have to be scared of, but just to embrace or come to understand. Some things to ponder…. 🙂 Best wishes. Rachel.

      • Beautiful response! I also had a dream about a black panther/jaguar. I was afraid of it even though it wasn’t doing anything to me. I’ve had random dreams of: a lion, a fawn/deer, snake biting me, a spider, a pack of dogs, and a dancing/friendly bull. I believe paying attention to the animal and symbolism it represents is a quality you possess or need to strengthen and that these are actually different versions of you showing up that have to be integrated as one whole. We are all one. Love and peace.

      • Rachel,
        Enjoyed reading your response regarding black jaguars. I’ve dreamt of a black leopard on two occasions. The second time, it was my friend,
        and spoke to me. You mentioned 11:11. I’m interested in what you may know about this number. I’ve been studying it for many years.

        Thanks,
        Douglass

    • Once again, your fear is your greatest messenger. Why do you fear the black panther. The black panther is who you are! To have a panther fight you like that is a great honor. It shows you how far the panther will go to get your attention. You fear because you have no personal power and until you step into your own power you will be unhappy and your child will grow up afraid as well also without personal power. You must embrace the black panther as your teacher, your mentor. These are some of the lessons the panther is here to teach you.
      • Reclaiming your Power
      • Healing the Inner Child
      • Understanding death
      • Acknowledging your own Power
      Apparently this is a really critical time for you to use your panther medicine otherwise the panther would not fight you, he/she would only stalk you.
      Be not afraid of your own power. Learn to use it wisely through discipline. Let die the things that take your power away from you and step into the power of your totem animals.
