Koala Meaning, and Messages

In this case, koala symbolism is inviting you to relax, enjoy the moment, and go with the flow of nature.  These animals are also messengers for physical well-being. Thus koala meaning often comes to us as a signal to get some much-needed rest. These marsupials are known to sleep up to 20 hours a day. When they come to us, it may be a sign to catch up on your sleep. Therefore, like the lion, you need to take a break and find an oasis of calm from the calamity of our daily lives. Koala symbolism also invites us to savor our downtime, enjoy our dreams, and revel in relaxation.

Koala Totem, Spirit Animal

People with the koala totem need to have a safe home where they can be safe, protected. That space also needs to be restful and stress-free. People with this spirit animal totem are very comfortable on their own. Like the cheetah, they have an abundance of empathy and are in tune with the emotions of others. Often because of this empathy, they need time to be alone to detox and regroup.

Folks with this power animal totem are likable, friendly, amicable, and content to go with the flow. They also have a strong protector and nurturing instinct. Thus they tend to look after their “tribe.” These people also show a keen interest in their society and are willing to help others in need. They do this all with endless patience and aplomb. These people like to introduce gentle adjustments to their environment rather than abrupt change. Thus they will often adopt a wait and see approach.

Koala Dream Interpretation

When you have a koala dream, it represents your link to the physical world, the subconscious, and the spiritual realm. This marsupial like the coral, in a vision also symbolizes security, nurturing, protection, feminine energies. In other words, you may be expressing a desire to regress into infantile dependence so that you can escape from your daily responsibilities or problems. Occasionally, this animal is merely asking you to hang on. Therefore, you will soon feel relief from the emotions and stresses you have been experiencing.

  • Koala brings a message of silence and stillness. We are surrounded by noise and motion and it can seem natural to be always in motion, always making noise. We become uncomfortable with silence and stillness to point where we fill it with empty sounds, empty words and motions merely to overcome our discomfort. It becomes difficult to hear when you yourself are making so much noise. It becomes difficult to see when your body and your vision no longer knows how to rest on any one thing. There is truth that goes beyond words and sound. There is a way of being very alive without constant meaningless motion. Coming in conjunction with Hunter of Mysteries, Koala speaks quietly to me that a Hunter is still and silent, and that not all hunting need involve death or violence. Mystery, that deepest truth that lurks in the shadows, in the darkness of what we don’t already know, can only be seen and felt when we become still and silent.

  • The same koala uses the gum tree in my back yard as a drop over on his journey at least twice a year.
    He was here on the weekend. While my young children were in the back yard, he came down, onto the ground and across our yard, back up another tree, only to chill out for a few minutes and allow us all to say hello and then he was on his way. Such a beautiful moment, especially so my kids could appreciate his presence x

    • How beautiful! They are precious moments when we can commune with animals and Nature – very healing and uplifting. I have dreamt of a koala bear giving me a cuddle , at a time just before my partner was diagnosed with cancer. It was amazingly comforting. My partner has gone through all his treatment and hopefully will be OK. I have recently dreamt of one again. I take it as spirit saying things are OK.

  • I love when i dream about animals and connect with them,the feeling of calmness, and filled with love energy. Last night I dreamed of a Koala with her two babies, I came up to them and offered them food, (leaves and berries) the mother took the food and telepathically said Thank you. We connected, I felt it!! (Almost like i could hear the Koala’s thoughts, – She said we are friends.”) The Feeling was intense, beautiful,and again peaceful.
    I really do believe i was in the spiritual realm, I wonder if she was a new totem of mine? I have a dream Journal and I love writing down these beautiful experiences. Blessings!!!

    • 🙂 Koala was much needed encouragement to stay in a healing space. An auntie gave me one when I was a child…stuffed (horrible I know now) but I loved it for years. I am pleased and comforted to have Koala with me now in spirit…thank you! Now here I go to recharge my batteries!
