If Tiger has stalked into your life;

Tiger is reminding you that persistence is what is necessary in order to attain your goals. Be patient, use tried and true methods, repeat them is necessary, use determination to get there. You will succeed – but only through patience.

Alternatively this big cat may be letting you know that you need to do some careful planning and maneuvering to get what you desire. If the task is unpleasant he is reminding your that you do have the strength and willpower to complete the task. Don’t waste your energy with guilty procrastination. Tackle the task at hand.

If Tiger is your Animal Totem;

You are a supremely confident individual that is fiercely persistent in attaining your goals. You are strong willed – and once you have made up your mind there is no changing it – however you do take the time to balance all possibilities before deciding. You enjoy quiet and solitude and are keenly observant of everything around you. You physically tend to move with lithe grace and sensuality. You enjoy being independent and rely on having a quiet place to retreat to if things get stressful. You tend to easily blend in or camouflage in social situations. Your natural charisma often draws many others to you.

If Tiger has come into your Dream;

To see a Tiger in your dream represents your power and your ability to exert it in various situations. The dream may also indicate that you should be taking on more of a leadership role. To dream of a friendly tiger may represent a belief or situation that erases all your fears or problems. To dream that you are attacked by a tiger refers to the emotions that you have repressed because you were afraid of confronting them. To see a caged tiger in your dream suggests that your repressed feelings are on the verge of surfacing.

  • Thank you for the detailed information. I generally have tigers in my dreams. Initially I didn’t pay much heed to it believing it could be because of my habit of reading books. But I lately I have this feeling it is not just books and thoughts. Dreams of tigers started 6 years back. I would dgeam of being chased by a tiger. Then it shifted to random places full of tigers (and lions also at times.) Once i dreamt of a tiger or more precisely liger as my pet. N it absolutely loved me. Recently i dreamt of myself in bushes and a lion comes out of it. It attacks me but I am not afraid. I am bleeding and there comes a tiger from my back. Both the big cats are face to face with me in centre. Need help please. Always same kind of dreams and that too very frequently is now disturbing. Few days back only I got to know about animal totem. So I am no sure if tiger is my animal totem.

  • While attending Jr. College and raising my teenage daughter I had a dream that I was hanging on the side of a cliff with no where to go up or down nor side to side. A white tiger appeared at my side, I placed my hand on the tiger, then we we’re standing together on the top of the cliff looking out over everything, and I knew I was going to be ‘Ok’.

  • A wonderful creature, the encarnation of the courage and will power , thats true, the most powerful reasons this animal is muy favorite is the influence of this animal in the martial arts samurai, shaolin kung fu warriors, also a great example of courage to karate fighters, and the rest of martial arts, in traditional kung fu the tiger is one of the 5 animals styles and represents the strength, powerful attacks, simple form to fight and this style is so direct, made for defeating the enemies fast and simple, the other reason is muy favorite is because for me, means the awesome beauty of rare uncommon things, the fact that the unknown extraordinary beautiful things, living creatures animals, and humans always existed and now exists, breaking the predjuices of ordinary common square head people

    things always

  • Well, I know that my spirit animal is some sort of big cat. I’ve narrowed it down to 2: Mountain Lion or Tiger. I’ve always been one to doubt, so I’ve taken into consideration that I’ve had 3 dreams about mountain lions but I’m basically surrounded by tigers. Both sides of my family are Clemson fans (don’t judge please). Also, I know that my spirit animal a predatory animal. Also, when I was a kid, I had an imaginary friend who I thought was a white shepherd-like dog. Recently however, I’ve been doubting that too! Anyway, I really need some help! I’m drawn to mountain lions, but they can’t be white like my imaginary friend was. What do you think? Thanks!

  • 😛 Good morning. Can you have more than one totem? I looked up my totem and it stated that I am a wolf, but I see tigers, and I have a tiger striped Mane Coon Cat that is always near me, knows when I am sad and worried. None of my other cats are like this. Am I a cat as well?

    • Well, it’s all up to you and your gut feeling on who’s your totem animal. For me, recently, my totems and spirit animals have shifted a bit. I’ve been an owl for a bit, but after some mediation, I found a lot of other animals that I connect with. The fox connected to me the most, but recently, the tiger has been around me. Granted, I never seen any of the animals mentioned, but it’s up to you in finding who’s your true spirit animals, or in your question, wether you’re a cat or not. And it’s possible to have more than one totem rolling into your life. :)

  • i don’t know if this means anything but as far as I can remember I’ve always seen tigers somewhere in my life circuses ,carnivals,bush gardens places that have tigers
    but I’ve notice that I’ve never seen any other big predator animal no matter what no bear, lions, ect but I could always find a tiger and know what kind it is now I didn’t pay it much attention tell last don’t time I went to bush gardens and went to the tigers area and instead of the tiger (Bengal ) walking up to anyone she walks up to me and looks me in eyes (staring). I don’t know what that means ?can you help

  • Excellent article and links, blessings and gratitude.

    Thank you

  • Hi there! Ok, so one night, I had a dream about my papa’s neighbor’s cat coming towards me and he was all bloody and “mauled” I guess you could say… So in this dream, after I saw the cat, I ran to my papas front porch and told them what had happened but they just kept staring beside me! When I looked down, there was a big cat sitting next to me. I thought it was a cougar but I couldn’t really see it that well and it just looked sad, but it didn’t look guilty. Then it disappeared! I looked up and there was a wolf pack and they looked evil and they had blood on them. I knew it had to be the (domestic) cats blood. When I woke up, I realized that the big cat had protected the smaller cat and protected me from the wolves. Also, I’ve always loved big cats. Especially the ones that can roar. I just don’t know which one is my spirit animal… Thanks!

  • Last night I dreamed that there was a young tiger in a cage, and that I freed it, and it stayed with me, and I protected it from the man who wanted to keep it in the cage. I guess this means I’m protecting my budding power from those who want me to repress it?

  • Hi,a few years a ago i went to a zoo and i straight went to the tigers section,the zoo that i went to you were allowed to go close to the animal’s cage so i did go close but i put my arm in the tiger’s cage. The tiger’s name was sultan. Sultan came close to my habd and rubbed himself against my hand. The gaurd saw what i did and ran towards me to pull me away but Sultan roar so loud the lion next to him bowed his head and sat. I felt a strong connection with him and every week i would visit him but a year later he die 😥 but i was not only good with the tigers but i was good with all of the felines species. That night that he die i dreamt that i was in a forest and a tiger was walking towards me but not any tiger but Sultan. I ran towards hime and giving him all the love. I sat on him and we walked through the forest and i saw no sign of animals than we reached a mountain like structure when i looked below a i saw all the animals kneeling Sultan came close to me and sat. I heard a voice in my head but no any voice but Sultan’s voice he said we can rule, join me mistriss, join us before i could reply i woke up i grabbed a pen and paper and wrote my dream down. Every day since that night i felt like i wasn’t alone,in the corner of my eye i would see Sultan i would feel like i was protected. Please do tell me what it means cause it has been 5 years and no other animal has come into my dreams.

  • hi, so im wondering if the tiger is my spirit animal. I was thinking that it might be, and before I went to bed last night I said “spirit animal I welcome you into my dreams” and then I dreamt that I was walking around my school with a tiger called char and when I called it it came up to me and let me pet it. do you think that the tiger is my spirit animal or that I dreamt of a tiger because I had been thinking about them the day before? I would appreciate some advice :)

    • Kayla,
      Sounds like you found one of your spirit animals…They often come through thoughts and dreams. Your tiger sounds like he is offering himself to you as help along your path. 😀 Spirit animals change periodically from one to another so don’t be surprised if you encounter more than one. Erin

  • Recently I’ve begun to be more into totem and spirit animals. I actually though the bat was my totem, as I’ve always loved them and been drawn to them. Even going to a cavern recently with my family. I started reading about bat totems, it made sense for me and I emersed myself into learning about them more. But then I remembered something that happened to me awhile back. I was at a family get together and some relative confronted me about something, passively attacking me verbally. I did something I normally wouldn’t, and stood up for myself. As I did that I got an immediate image of a tiger growling and preparing to attack. There was no thought to it. It just appeared in my head as I was telling her off. It was an amazing,, almost out of body experience. I quickly dismissed it believing that *everyone thinks their totem is something like a tiger” and went on focusing on bats. Then today I took a nap, and dreamt I was in my childhood home. I was looking for something and saw a bunch of toy and stuffed animal tigers. In the dream I looked at them and knew they weren’t toys, they were totems. I said aloud, “I thought my totem was a bat”. I wasn’t even thinking about tigers or that incident before falling asleep. Now I’m wondering if I can have more than one or if I’m being an idiot lol and not accepting Tiger as my spirit animal. Rabbits are an animal I’ve had dreams about and have literally shown up on my door step. Is it possible to have many? How do I know which is which?

    • Hello Katherine. It is very possible to have more that one totem. I have three. A wolf, Tiger, and a Lion. At one point I use to believe that I only had a wolf until I had a weird thing happen to me. When a group of “Friends” betrayed me, I confronted them. Just to talk, nothing more and nothing less. Well, it turned to be a verbal assault from the five of them. When all I wanted was to talk. Well for some reason I had an out of body experience there. I was on a grassland-like plain. A tiger and a lion both confronted me there. When I returned to my body from the experience, there of them was on the ground with broken jaws and the other two were scared. So I did some research in to the lion and tiger guides. Both of them for me represent the aggressive power of my darker side which came out that day. My wolf on the other hand as always been with me.

  • Hi,

    I feel an increasing connection to Tigers, its been gradual since around May 2014. I always appreciated tigers for the formidable and captivating beings they are however I never paid attention to them like this. I haven’t seen them in dreams but I feel a presence of a tiger when I feel scared. Once whilst having difficulty sleeping I ATTEMPTED to meditate to clear my mind but was feeling scared and I could picture this Tiger leaning over my side and showing off its ferociousness towards something. It felt like it was protecting me. I have thought that maybe my mind is just making these things up just because I think they’re amazing! But if that were the case I would have felt strongly for them or payed attention to them like I do now right, no? There has to be a reason as to why I feel a presence of one so I’m now starting to seek answers as my intuition is telling me its something more than them just being my favourite animal now all of a sudden….

    Thanks :)

  • Hello, recently I had a dream about a tiger. I don’t remember the details since it was a few days ago, but I do know that I wasn’t scared. And it wasn’t coming after me. I was mostly observing it. It was odd to dream of it because I normally have repetitive dreams about bears, and know they are my spirit animal. When I woke up from the tiger dream I knew they are trying to guide me somehow.

  • I had two previous dreams of the tiger, i don’t remember much of the first one but the second one was interesting. I don’t know what to make of it; in my room there was two baby tigers and I wanted to take care of them but the mom tiger didn’t want me near them. Next thing I knew the mom tiger was chasing me out of my very own home and I was afraid of it and I was upset that I couldn’t take control and lost to the tiger. I never thought much of the tiger being my possibly animal.

  • I had a dream of two full grown tigers in my bed room. They didn’t try to harm me but I wanted them to leave. One would walk on my bed and as i was trying to kinda lead them out the room its like they didn’t want to leave. I was trying to throw things out of the bedroom door to get their attention for them to run out but it took more then one attempt. I don’t remember fearing them in the dream however I kept in mind that is they decided to attack they could and they could harm me if they chose to so i was careful not to make sudden moves. What does this mean? ??

  • I see a dream about tiger wandering around in my house or office . Though he dosent try ti harm in any way just roam abut. Also dese days wen i look a imagea if tiger i get some emotinal feeling can u help mme in understanding these. Have to mention u abut particular dream which have seen thrice .

    • Hello mugdha: You’ve been selling yourself short for years and it’s time to realize that you yourself are a leader among your peers. You have the power to lead through example, courage and simply by being yourself. It’s long time that you walk your own path.

  • I was meditating one morning while listening to a soft melow tune. I wrote down the event after because its the first time iv experienced it. I remember I was in the forest, & there was something running through the bushes ahead of me. I followed and ended up on a empty beach where I encountered a tiger & one of my friends that passed away 4 months ago. They were walking towards me & both stopped, then the tiger came close to me and gazed into my eyes for about 30 seconds, I remember the tiger was dark orange with with cherry red eyes & had gold streaks through them. The tiger then turned around & started walking away with my friend.. They fadded away in seconds! Can you please tell me what that means? It felt so good to see my friend again it felt real!

    • Hello Larry J: Your friends was letting you know that they were just fine. The Tiger was letting you know that you have a path to follow – and that you need to stay on it. Adopt the wisdom of the tiger and find out as much as you can about him – because he will be with you for a while. Trust the knowledge you gain from Tiger.

  • I’ve been seeing white tigers recently and then someone told me they saw my animal totem around me- a white tiger. Is there any significance to this- is there a difference in meaning because of the color?

    • Hi Donna: A white Tiger is much the same as the regular tiger but with emphasis on the spiritual components of this totem. Take care with any message or lesson this totem brings for you and look for the spiritual highest growth that you can accomplish through the message or lesson.

  • I’ve had dreams occasionally of a tiger killing me, even though this is one of my totems. I wonder if being killed is the same as the symbolism of being attacked.

    • Hello Jen D. The symbolism of attack and actually being killed are slightly different. Being killed by a Tiger is symbolic of the emotions of guilt and anger literally eating you up inside. Take the time to resolve these emotions – as these are the most dangerous to your spiritual well being and can easily manifest themselves in your physical body as a form of cancer.
