Giraffe Meaning and Messages

In this case, the Giraffe symbolism is letting you know that it is time to allow your foresight to lead the way. You know what you have been predicting all along. Therefore, you should take action and follow through. Not only that, but the Giraffe meaning is also telling you that your gut instincts and clairvoyance are telling you something. Hence this spirit animal teaches you to listen to your heart and allow your awareness to lead the way.

Alternatively, the Giraffe symbolism may be letting you know that you can ask for help and guidance in all matters. Similar to the Jaguar, if you are confused in any way, focus inward, and follow your heart. Giraffe symbolism reminds you that your soul and your heart are connected. Therefore it will be the most reliable source of the knowledge you are seeking. Thus, if it feels “right,” then you must follow through. In the same fashion, if it feels uncertain or questionable, then look inward to see if it is not just your fear of change stopping you. Accordingly, the Giraffe meaning also says, if it feels wrong, look for another direction. Also, it is not enough to see the future; you must continue to move toward it as well.

Giraffe Totem, Spirit Animal

Most Giraffe totem people have the gift of higher perception and inner awareness. Moreover, they have learned to make their words count and share their knowledge of their surroundings with others. Like the Rat, people with this spirit animal often know the future, can sense what is going to happen and what lies over the horizon. As a result, they should never become complacent and lose sight of the future. Life will become increasingly difficult until they set their sights once more on the path ahead. The Giraffe totem people also have firm ties to family and friends, especially parents and children. Additionally, their gentleness and gracefulness in action are always apparent to others.

Giraffe Dream Interpretation

For the most part,  a Giraffe dream suggests that you need to consider the overall picture. In other words, take a broader view of your life is headed. The vision may also be a metaphor on how you are “sticking your neck out” for someone.

To dream that you are riding one of these creatures represents your desire to stand out from the crowd. You want attention, but aren’t getting it.

Similar to the Boxer dream, to dream that this animal is running, it implies that you are avoiding the truth. However, it can also suggest that you may have seen something that you shouldn’t have.

If this mammal is red in your Giraffe dream, it is a warning that you are following a dangerous path and that your future is at stake. You need to step back and find a new direction so that you are back on purpose. If the animal is green, then there are greener pastures ahead, and things are about to get a little easier for you.

  • I would like to know why I always unexpectedly see a giraffe in different forms. In photos, billboards, videos, or background print, cups, etc. They have been turning up randomly for over a year now. sometimes, for consecutive days in a row.
    What is it telling me?

    • Well, I am involved in a lot of business matters, and I do know that companies like to use certain animals in their advertisements with a lot of conscious knowledge of what that animal might symbolize in. It's not unusual for companies to have some type of animal motif associated with them due to this, though if it's a giraffe that catches your eye particularly, its traits might be trying to point you to do something to make use of this in a career setting, or to look for career opportunities with a metaphorical, if not also literal, association with giraffes. That, unless it's a new advertising trend where you are, which means that likely business is evolving these days with the characteristics encouraged with giraffes.

    • Iguana makes me think of an animal that camouflages....the dog means something camouflaged was sniffed out and not handled "humanely"...makes me think of dog eat dog mentality.

      • I had a nightmare that it was storming, there was a ton of lightning, but it wasn’t raining, just really windy. It was also night time. There was a fully black eyed giraffe and everything was really static and unmoving. In the nightmare, it was both terrifying and bleak. Very unusual.

  • Hi, last night I had a very real dream and it went like this. A huge Giraffe was in the highway chasing a man who was trying to stop his car from going into collision. The man was somehow scared, the Giraffe than kept chasing the guy and his car landed on a huge water sink hole, he got behind the sink hole and the car plus water sucked him into the hole and the car rolled on top of him...he died and the Giraffe started to walk in circles around me, this Giraffe made me feel protected, I was glad that the guy was gone and that this Giraffe was maybe protecting me, I felt safe. Than I was watching the news and it was super real, the news were telling viewers this, "a man gets chased by a giraffe while the giraffe seemed to protect another man, the zookeeper has a letter the man who died wrote before he died and you won't believe what the letter reveals, it is absolutely out of this world, all and more when we get back...!". I was stunned and didn't know a letter existed, I woke up feeling happy, curious and like something happened for the better...still stunned

    • Pay attention to nature , it will clean itself and the true residents won't be harmed ,, also it's a symbol that there's a emotional issue that needs your attention .. Take a look into yourself and see what is feeding your emotions right now ..

  • In my dream, I was walking down the street in the dark and see a giraffe out of the corner of my eye dart across the street into the hills. I find the giraffe kicking a chain link fence around an abandoned lot open. I later find myself inside of a room with someone and hear gunshots. I run outside to see the giraffe has been shot and killed. Very bizarre.

  • I had a dream that I was on a beach front with my sister. We were having breakfast at a restaurant on the beach and I looked up the sky. It was originally a sunny day but all of a sudden the clouds looked darker, almost like a thunderstorm was blowing in but there was no wind. I said to my sister: "that's odd, the clouds don't usually make this pattern over the ocean, something looks different...off?" Then 2 giraffes emerged out of the water and began running inland. I yelled "they are moving to higher ground, RUN!!" And shortly after the ocean began to creep up to the restaurant and then more and more water kept coming. We ran into a hotel and got on a high enough floor to escape the water that began flooding inland.

    Wonder what this might mean?

    • Hmmm I had a similar dream. I was holding my son and I threw him out of the way. The giraffe only attacked me and had me pinned to the ground. I finally escaped but he was still after me.

      • Had a dream last night that a Giraffe was chasing me. It was trying to punch me in the head. I say punch because the hands looked like racoon hands. It seemed like I could never get away.

  • Long story short
    In my dream, a Giraffe was being walkwalked my handlers, when it start to walk up to me and then puts it's head to my chest as if listening to my heart. I begin to cry and hug it's neck and head, while kissing it's forhead.
    The handlers are trying to get the Giraffe back, but instead of going with the handlers it kneels down and puts it's head in my hands. I collapsed and begin to kiss it's snout.
    The handlers look mad and say "it's giving in to you, it will never be the same"
    The Giraffe then gets up and walks off with the handlers.

    • If this were my dream I would feel the strong message to appreciate the emotions and the desires of my heart. The giraffe in your dream seems to tell you to honor all of your visions through your heart. The handlers seem to represent an old paradigm of managing everything by thinking it through. Yet you collapse into the heartfelt connection with your gifts and experience everything that is yours to experience with great Love. How could we ever accept life without this unifying force that truly brings all of Life into the perspective of the whole being.

  • I had a dream that I was exploring a wooded area and came upon an overgrown habitat with beautiful architectural design. I was with my mother and there was a bridge that connected to a circular concrete wall. In the center a giraffe, larger than I have ever seen,was grazing. It stretched up to look at us. It extended it's neck over the wall and nuzzled against my face then went back to grazing. I woke up and just felt so safe. Any thoughts? :evil: :sad: :sad:

  • I just wanted to say that the giraffe is a very magical and mystical creature. It's beautiful patterns are unparalleled. It was my favorite animal as a child and honestly.. Hate to say it but I lost touch with it many years back and only recently-as in a week or so- have begun my reconnect. i have such a yearning right now t be surrounded by giraffe. I found myself think 'I miss the giraffe' and it's suddenly appearing every where I go. Everything I look at.. I feel such a deep connection to this spirit that I am saddened that I had shied away from it for so long. I realized as a child this was so dominant in my life-my visions were way more precise and regular and even longer. I'm embarking on a spiritual journey right now that I have been told to handle gracefully.. This all before she waltzed back into my life. Call me crazy but my intuition is telling me that she is the answer. I worry about my personal grace and how I will handle the events so soon to come. Since reconnecting with her I have heard this constant hum in my right ear. It seems to get higher the more I deepen the reconnect and I know it is the right path. I'm not afraid of truth, however, I am afraid of my ability to communicate said truths. Perception is such a powerful thing. Ego needs be removed, let's enjoy this beautiful creature for what it is. I'm glad to see all of you on here. Fellow giraffe kin. <3 I hope you all find what you are looking for and may you be aided well by our spirit the giraffe.

  • I dreamed that there was a smaller giraffe in the room and a friend of mine told me to take note that the giraffe, when it walked in a circle looked like it had a snake head, When it would walk around in a circle as it made itself around, the neck of the giraffe appeared to look like a snake at the same time
