Cheetah Meaning and Messages

In this case, Cheetah symbolism is reminding you that things are moving with high speed for you right now. Therefore you need to keep yourself focused on your direction and your goal. Moreover, it is the best way to find the most direct way of achieving your dreams. Occasionally the Cheetah meaning is a little more subtle. In other words, it means that you will have to focus on all aspects of a plan. In particular, be a bit more flexible in the revisions to attain your goal. Thus this spirit animal insists that you must be clear about your intention and what it is you are trying to create.

Alternatively, Cheetah symbolism warns you to be aware of spreading yourself a bit too thin. It could be that you are trying to accomplish too much or having too many goals at the same time.

Cheetah Totem, Spirit Animal

People with the Cheetah totem have a high capacity for empathy and know precisely how to respond to the hurt, pain, and suffering of others. They are fearless in the art of tough love and will tell it exactly as it is. However, they also have a way of saying these things diplomatically so that it removes the “punch” from the delivery. Folks with this spirit animal also respond quickly and instantly to all opportunities and the dangers in their lives. They also tend to be solitary and are very selective as to who they will trust and form a bond.

Cheetah Dream Interpretation

When you have a Cheetah dream in which the cat is chasing you, it suggests that you may need to get up out of that chair and get moving. In other words, be more active in pursuit of your goals. Conversely, the vision could also be letting you know that you cannot outrun your current problems or situation. Therefore, you will not be able to escape them and will have to take action instead.

If the animal in your dream is hunting, it symbolizes that something is missing in your life. Thus, you somehow feel that you are missing the mark as far as your purpose in life goes.

Alternatively, this big cat dream may appear in your life when you are trying to move on, and something keeps bringing you back to the same dilemma.

  • I had a dream in that dream I was in place that seemed like a classroom. The cheetah was looked in a cabinet and my son went to open the cabinet and it came out. I was terrified that it would hurt myself and my son, but strangely it came around me as I sat down and started to smell me, in my head I heard a voice telling to relax it won't hurt me, I must breath slow deep breath so that my heart does beat too fast. After wards more people came into the room, the cheetah ran outside and I quickly told my son to hide and I hid myself but this cheetah came back to get me as if I was supposed to follow it. Then I woke up. Please interpret for me

    • Malls in a dream often represent the latest trends, fashion, modernity and materialism. Along with seeing cheetahs in a negative light in a dream, this might mean that you might be spending too much in shopping lately, or trying to spread yourself too thin in terms of money. The cheetah is the fastest land animal on Earth, but in this case, it isn't best to make your financial decisions too quickly, it seems.

  • I had a dream, it's like I'm in this place where my mother was renting close to our school playground, and it's like I'm following a relative, than all of a sudden I'm seeing him running in the abandoned playground and he's telling me to run away, and I'm seeing him running and I could see a jackal running away than a
    gain I'm seeing a cheetah chasing him towards me and I'm also running to the house next to the playground and the cheetah stopped chasing and turned back.

    • It seems this is related to your relative in some kind of form, or if you associate certain characteristics and themes with your relative, then this is related to that, if not both. A jackal running away shows that truth, intelligence and cleverness is being removed from the situation, while the cheetah chasing him and you in connection to the jackal might mean that the truth is chasing after you to inhibit some of the goals of "keeping appearances" in your life.

    • You've given up on your goals in life, represented by the cheetah cubs (the new beginning of a fast progressing goal), because you are either stuck drifting through your life without any goal, or stuck always focused on what others want over your own.

  • Last night I had a dream of cheetah spread out on the ceiling of our bedroom watching us intently, while we were sleeping. I woke up in the dream and though scared I watched it back without making any sound. Then I woke up. It was early morning may ne 4-5 am.

    • The cheetah watching you in the bedroom seems to represent how the dreams of a certain intense goal and direction keeps popping up in your mind, especially when you try to sleep, but you can't seem to do anything but gaze at the dream back.

    • It may seem that in your life, you have a choice of acting either as the shepherd of sheep or the cheetah. That is, either guiding those obedient and gentle towards you, or following the whims of those who have directly different passionate goals from you and your flock. The choice is yours.

    • It seems like you have a gift of diplomacy to navigate many different places and areas of status. You gather quite a following but tend to keep to yourself about your problems. Being more open about your uncertainty can help, lean on those around you.

  • I had a dream last night of Cheetahs chasing me. The first part I don't remember to many details, but what I do remember is that a single Cheetah was chasing me and I was able to get away. Then I remember that I was in a large crowd of people, like some kind of Festival, or special event. I walked over to some near by apartment buildings were a friend lived. I walked up a flight of stairs, that were located on the outside of the building. From the second floor I could still see the crowd of people. My friend and her family was outside of her apartment to greet me. I turned my back to the staircase, and the crowd. My friend needed to talk, she had told me that she almost committed suicide last night. As I tried to find out why she felt so distressed, something inside me said, turn around. As I did, I saw that all the people, thousands of them were just gone. But, running across the stretch of grass, from a distance, coming toward us, was a Cheetah at a high speed. I then thought to myself, this is the second time today, that a Cheetah was chasing me. It was so far away I was sure we could make it inside my friends apartment, just a few feet away. But, I was wrong. Before we could take two steps, the Cheetah was across the field and up the stairs in front of us. Now, It was a question of who the Cheetah would attack first. As the Cheetah moved his head from person to person, in a crouched, attack position the animal fixed his sights on me. He crouched down just a little bit farther, as if to Lunge at me. But, my mind told me to raise my hands gently in front of me. I have brought both my hands slowly up in front of my body, one in front of my chest, and the other across my stomach. Then, I thought to myself I need to protect my face. In doing so, the cheetah raised his body, as if just to stand and look at me. At this point, I knew he was not going to attack me, but I was still afraid. The cheetah and I Look eye-to-eye to one another, there was some kind of strong connection, but I had no clue what. No one was attacked, I had woke up with that cheetah still in my mind looking at me eye-to-eye, as if the cheetah was still standing looking at me in the eye. What does it all mean? It is truly trying to tell me something, and I will pay attention to this warning.

    • I think this has something to with your abilities of foresight and hindsight. Your lack of being able to recall might actually have something to with why you don't understand what to do. Even vice versa with immersive crowds too much stimuli. Maybe your friend, maybe the Cheetah has all the answers you need to connect with your inherent powers. Take the crowd away. Watch the gap close just watch the ripples calm and know intensity of what you will affirm. I bet you have a steady unwavering face, maybe you can't or don't need to recall anything. Just trust your instincts. I think that could make you a good healer too, just show some face when those you reach need you.

  • I have never dreamed of cheetahs before, until several days ago. I dreamed that 2 cheetahs approached me and my husband from out of the dark. We were afraid of them and tried to make them leave by throwing rocks at them and trying to scare them off. They wouldn't leave no matter what we did. I was about to try and run away from them and all of a sudden saw one leap up and bite my husband in the neck. I screamed and woke up. I was so glad to awaken from the dream but later on during that day my husband received a very disturbing medical diagnosis at his doctor's appointment. I realized the dream was a premonition of that. Has anyone else found that their cheetah dream symbolizes something (either beneficial, challenging or mixed?) that is currently going on in their lives, or perhaps something that ended up happening later on?

  • I recently had a dream that a pack of Cheetahs were running toward me as if they were running away from something. Only one stopped and stared at me and gently grabbed my hand with its mouth as if it wanted me to run to. I was scared but didn't run away.

  • I recently had a dream with a cheetah and an eagle. I was in a very inmense backyard with a big tree in the middle. I was there with a group of 4 very strange individuals, suddenly I saw a cheetah coming down from the tree, my first reaction was to chase it, but for a strange reason i was running on all 4. I chase him to the tree and climb my way up, then I slowly descended back down and returned. He went down again and I chase him again in a very aggresive way, even tough I wasn't trying to hurt him, suddenly he went more high in the tree where an eagle suddenlt appeared, it then flew to 3 suspending pillars made of wood in the air, each of them where more higher than the other, the next thing I knew I was asking myself how can I ger up there. Whe I came down again, I saw a hologram of a hovercraft, it was the key to get up to the pillars. The next thing I knew is that I woke up and started drawing the mental picture.

  • Two nights ago, I was dreaming that I was with a few other people outside. We were in a yard and preparing to rake it, maybe of leaves or bits.
    Then, a long, low truck arrived. The many doors opened and 6-7 cheetas each came out. Their eyes were filled with a golden white light glowing from them and around their heads. They were lean and snarling or hungry.
    I yelled to "get inside" of the long utility room we were close to on the opposite side of the yard, just 30 ft away. I went inside and closed the door very frightened after seeing the intensity of the cheetas, afraid for our lives.
    Since I didn't hear my friends, I opened the door a little to see what was going on and where my friends were. And one of the guys had brought out a large animal cage and there was the body of my young brother who had died of AIDS in 1986 at 28.
    He was already dead and I think my friend was using his body as bait. I was so freaked out and frightened I woke up just after 5 am and could not sleep. So I meditated.

  • I had a dream that we were celebrating some festival in jungle. There were many people of my age group.. suddenly many cheetahs came growling.. I was having torch with me like others. we tried to threaten them . Somehow we were safe and nobody was attached by cheetahs. And especially I was too much ready to fight with cheetah to save the people.
    What's the meaning of this dream please tell me.

  • Last night I had a dream where I am in a school building and people are running around that there is a an animal (big cat) on loose (i can't remember the word but it was not a tiger or lion or panther). It was chasing other people but I never encountered it. I saw glimpses of it passing in near distance, and it looked like a cheetah but fatter. There was chaos, i managed to come down many floors without problem but people were freaking out. On ground, outside I saw a room and took shelter with few people who came along, saw the animal in distance going in different direction, as I was about to close the door, i saw people running towards me in panic to get inside, i opened the door and let them in, noticing in distance that those people were being chased by the animal(cheetah but aggressive) now to animal is running tiwards the room. I close the foor and put my force against the door to prevent it from opening and hold it taut to prepare from an anticipated blow from the animal. The animal attacked the door but failed to damage it. Then I realised that there are windows which are high up but are made of glass, the ceiling of room is quite high and the room is packed with people. I remember thinking to myself that I hope these people do not yell in psnic as the animal outside is banging on door, and somehow it was pindrop silence, no one made a sound despite the animal banging outside to break in. After some time the animal finds the windows and breaks the glass and starts to pick people up with jumps from outside to outside across the room. There are a number of cheetahs doing that from different directions,picking people from top,people on top. I am still at the door, holding it and ducked down. And all that seems to be happening far away and above from me in the same room. The animals are aggressive. Nothing​ comes near me and I remember thinking why. What did I do that it didn't happen and what did those people do that it happened to them and I woke up from the dream. Very wiered dream. Never experienced anything like this in my dreams. New to me.

    • Remembered more details, when cheetahs were attacking people , it slowed down and somehow talepathecally i communicated to people to cover the windows with some board and put pressure on the board to prevent the animals from breaking in and it worked and animals left the windows and moved again to the door and then I had those thoughts, and woke up.

  • In my dream last night, I was walking beside a friendly cheetah that could talk. I had a mission, to save it or at least hide it from evil people. I wasn't scared of it, nor it of me. We were like companions. What could it mean?
