Alligator Meaning, and Messages

In general, Alligator symbolism reminds us to look for opportunities to ingest new knowledge and wisdom. The spirit animal represents all of the unbridled creative forces of the world, including the fury and ferocity of reptilian primal energy. Therefore, this reptile is the keeper and protector of all knowledge. It is the end of one period in your life and the beginning of something new.

When Alligator symbolism makes an appearance in your life, like the Lobster, you can be sure that this is a new period of growth and regeneration for you. You must be sure to give yourself time to integrate all of the changes. In other words, keep yourself balanced as you move through this period.

It is also possible that Alligator meaning is letting you know that you have been too complacent of late. Sure, things have been moving forward, albeit a bit slowly. However, the Universe is putting you on notice that it is time to shake things up a bit. Get ready for a wild ride.

Alternatively, your Alligator meaning may be letting you know that you need to digest what you have just learned and experienced. You must be sure to integrate everything before moving on to the new.

Alligator Totem, Spirit Animal

Those of you with the Alligator totem have a gift for bringing harmony into your life in ways that help you to survive and prosper. Moreover, you allow others to be their authentic selves and work hard at being your authentic self at all times. As an Alligator totem, you are usually in touch with your real emotions in any given situation. Additionally, you know and understand that what you project emotionally is vital for others to see. Also, you have a lot of patience in the chaos of other people’s emotions, as well as a deeper understanding of what they are genuinely expressing. Thus, you are a gifted healer in the emotional realms.

Alligator Dream Interpretation

To have an Alligator dream, similar to the Falcon, is symbolic of freedom, hidden strength, and power. Conversely, it also forewarns of hidden danger. Someone near you is giving you bad advice and is trying to sway you into poor decisions. Because this reptile can live in water and on land, they also represent your conscious and subconscious and the emotional and rational. Perhaps something is coming to the surface, and you are on the verge of some new awareness.

Alternatively, the Alligator dream may be an aspect of yourself and your aggressive and “snappy” attitude. To dream that you are chased or bitten by this reptile denotes disappointments in love and business. If you feel that this animal is hunting you in your dream, beware that someone close to you has made plans to undermine your authority.

Oddly, when you dream of these reptiles in pink or blue, you can expect a new child in the family.

  • I'm interested in your interpretation....
    I was given sunflowers and while speaking with the farmer I began to open the flowers and big black seeds gathered in my hands.
    Me: "Look!"
    Farmer: "Yes you plant them and you will have lots and lots of flowers."
    Me: "Are they any good? You know they make them now where the seeds don't reproduce."
    Farmer: ""These are all good, heirloom. They'll work."
    Then my attention was drawn to the wood slated bed of his truck. There were some large pod like buds near the front. I saw what looked like large black seeds inside them. Then one began to open up and an adult sized alligator was pushed out in birth, then another and a third.
    I saw my dog now; nestled in between some crates at the back. She was unconcerned, and I called to her as this was happening. She came to me and was still not concerned as a rather large alligator, the first of the three, passed by us in peace.

    • Seeds are traditionally metaphors for the growth of certain goals over time. You can see how it is even in the Bible.

      "31 He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”

      - Matthew 13:31

      If you're not convinced of that, you can look up "interpretation of dreams in the Bible," which shows a lot of verses that support this practice(https://www.learnreligions.com/dreams-in-the-bible-4764111).
      Now I have a lot of interpretations of dreams that involve seeds, but for some reason, my gut instinct just told me to involve that longer explanation of seeds to you. Dunno why.

      If the seeds opened up large alligators, then alligators being the representation of knowledge and learning through both the mind as well as the heart, means that you will find the growth of the seeds you planted in life through balancing logic and emotion when you make decisions in life. Perhaps next time when you make big or even small decisions, ask both your heart and mind to tell you what it thinks, then find a compromise between both.

  • I had a dream about 2-3 crocodiles attacking me and my family. We somehow fought it, and shoo-ed it away. What does it mean? They were trying to attack me, out of nowhere.

    • This seems to represent a "snappy" attitude within your family, which might represent a series of passive aggressive conflicts that is pushing apart different members of your family. The way they attack you is a symbol of how your many unnecessary disagreements may be pulling you all apart.

It started of me helping a guy out with his house for him to sell and when I was done I moved on to his land to clean it up and make it presentable and promising for buyers. Then a huge alligator came out of nowhere and I killed it. Then I went to tell the owner when another huge alligator pop out of nowhere. His neighbor was in a tractor and seen it so he came and killed it. When I got to the house there's huge alligators everywhere I look.. I must of called my wife because she was at the beginning of the driveway with my 3yr old daughter. I ran through/over/under straight to my family when I get to them we walked back. Me poking them with a stick. We started a refugee. And people came and kept coming????? It was kinda a weird dream.. can someone tell me what they think.. and what's that mean for me and what I'm going through at this time in my life???? Thank you

    • Well, technically, we are all cast from the original man, the true alpha and omega. This represents God, and depending on your beliefs, it might mean Jesus or some other spiritual figure. In a way, everyone is called to guide the world in some way for the better, but what makes your dream different is that it included a gator. You might want to study the meaning of the spirit animal alligator in multiple websites because this might suggest that your life purpose is connected to the qualities of the alligator itself as a totem.

  • I dreamed that there were two alligators in bed with me. I was in the middle and if I moved one inch to either side I would be eaten so had to remain frozen in place.

    • This represents how in a major decision in your life, rather than choosing the left or right as a direction to choose, such as having to choose between siding with several friends or family, it is best to choose the middle path. If you can't move towards the alligators left and right to you, then get up and move forward from that position. Do not move to the left and right in life. Do not turn directions. Just move forward where you're already going.

  • In my dream a large crocodile was chasing a smaller crocodile who arose from the surface of the water on a whale. What does it mean? In my dream I was watching as a bystander.

    • It seems that it represents how listening more deeply to your emotions or taking other people's emotions more seriously (as represented by the whale) will carry the responsibility of looking after the part of you that wants to make big reckless decisions (represented by the big alligator), so that you can hide how inexperienced you are in life (represented by the small alligator.)

    • The alligator saving you from the man represents a certain individual in your life who is tough, full of primal lizard energy, a wise balance between emotion as well as logic and is thankfully at your side in a conflict rather than against you.

    • What does it mean when you see an iluminous alligator, surround the alligator is a green mist/fog that is exactly the same colour green as the alligator. The outline of the alligator was in bold lines to enable it to stand out against the green mist/fog. The alligator was small in size and it was going round in circles or have n figure of eights

  • I had a dream that two elderly men (that I don’t know) were by and in water. An alligator was approaching the one in the water and then raised slightly above the water. I then woke up so I have no idea if the alligator was going to attack him or not. How should I interpret this?

  • I had this dream that I was getting dropped off and I was walking through a farmers market of some sort. I then began to feel a weird biting feeling on my right ankle and when I stopped to see what is was anda alligator was right behind me. So it’s stopped but for some reason I wanted to follow it and it lead me to a wall. I’ve been dreaming about the same thing for this past couple of days bu the weird thing is that every night my dream starts a at a different time, lets say yesterday the dream started at 4pm and today the started at 1pm. But I can never go past that wall that the alligator takes me to. If someone could help me out on why this is happening I would gladly appreciate it.

    • Hi there, it sounds to me in this particular dream that you are being made aware of an obstacle that you need to get past in your life so you can move on to something that fits your true life's mission. If the wall is brick and very sturdy you should know that this is a traditional type of idea or thought process that is a strongly held belief either in society or in your own personal life. If it is made of wood or something like chain link or something that would be easier to get through then that would signify that your obstacle is just a change in thinking pattern away. I hope that helps. Alligator= ancient knowledge your soul wants you to know.

  • I had a dream that I owned 2 baby alligators. I wasn't scared of them but they were a nuisance and kept biting my left index finger every time I carried them. The finger was fine and they did not cause any damage to my index finger. I finally told husband that I was going to tape their mouth shut, which I did with black tape, and got rid of them. I would like to know what this might mean. As I stated earlier I was not scared I was just annoyed.

  • I dreamed that a flower planter filled with dirt (it had no plants in it) started erupting like a toad or bug was uncovering itself from hibernation..but instead a small squirrel sized animal unearthed itself (seemed like it had been buried a long time) and it then franticly jumped out of the pot, shook the dirt and mud off and then I could tell it was a small alligator of crocodile..it immediately ran off fast and erratically..but away from me. I felt more surprised than scared.

  • I dreamt of this a few times. I was travelling on a coach from Singapore to Malaysia during the day. To the West of the highways on my left window were canals and towns. There are crocodiles basking in the canals. I was thinking it can be very dangerous for the people in town to have such a dangerous animal in close proximity.
