Allow your passion to burn with the ferocity of a Lion. This will show you the way to manifesting your dreams into a reality.

Lion Meaning and Messages

In general, Lion symbolism brings us a message of prudence. In other words, this big cat asks us not to overdo things in certain areas of our lives. Instead, keep an even mind and an overall balance in our life activities. Lion symbolism is the ultimate protector of hearth and home. Thus Lion’s meaning advises us to heed the actions of this big beast, for he will show you if it is time to relax and de-stress your mind, body, and spirit.

Alternatively, Lion symbolism focuses on timing and power. Perhaps it’s time to increase your community responsibilities and organize cooperation among your peers. Lion meaning also aids you in recognizing and understanding your own noble and regal attitudes.

A Lioness represents the need to build for tomorrow. Furthermore, the groundwork you lay down today will manifest your destiny.

These big cats are very closely related to the Tiger, Leopard, and Jaguar

Lion Totem, Spirit Animal Totem

People with the Lion totem are fiercely independent, confident, and in control. These traits are all balanced by a quiet demeanour. Folks with this spirit animal totem are also a creative and influential force. They also have the internal power to make positive (or negative) changes in their life and the lives of others around them. For the most part, Lion totem people are very loyal and will defend their friends and family’s honour to the death. They are continuously watchful and always on top of things.

If the Lioness is your spirit animal totem, then you have powerful maternal instincts and are ferociously protective whenever required. Women with this totem will have mastery over their emotional body and the ability to manifest all aspects of love. They are creative, passionate, and bond quickly.

Lion Dream Interpretation

In this case, your Lion dream is letting you know that you will overcome some of your emotional difficulties. It is also telling you that you are more powerful than you think and that you have a lot of influence over others. In other words, you need to exercise some restraint in your own personal and social life. Alternatively, a wildcat like this represents your need for control over others. You have to be in charge.

To see a Lioness in your dream represents your maternal instincts. You will go to great lengths to protect your interests. Also, a Lioness symbolizes hope, victory, tenacity, and stamina.

When you dream that this cat attacks you, it suggests that a force may be driving you to self-destruction. Only acute self-awareness will help you overcome these challenges and obstacles.

A black Lion dream represents a negative force. You or someone else is using their position of power to create mischief.

If the cat is white in your vision, then it highlights your majestic power. It may also indicate a sudden awareness of the power you hold.

  1. A while back I had a dream I never forget. I was on this ground that was open n the land was pretty dry and the sun light was bright with mountains around me. I saw this one lion standing on this high rocy mountain idk if he had wings or not but I think so .but it was two lions n one of them I kno for sure didn’t have wings but the where both huge lions as gaints and they didn’t roar but spook and when they spoke it sound look a roar but they were speaking words and there voice was as loud as god.i remember what the lion kept saying to me “Transform” .and then I woke up, it seem so real

    1. Hmm. . . if you saw a powerful lion with wings, I suggest you look into the Archangels, specifically Archangel Michael. I suggest looking these up online if you’re curious, as my best guess on what this means exactly for you.

    1. Perhaps this means that you feel like you are taking care of a false strength in your life, because the lion in your dream is disguised as a far older and more experienced powerful lion, when it is still just a cub in reality. I suggest looking up these terms online for a suggestion for more information on the topic. 1. Imposter syndrome 2. Perfectionism advice 3. Books for perfectionism 4. Types of perfectionism 5. Perfectionism in psychology. 6. Mental health in Asian culture 7. Perfectionism in women

    1. The lioness grabbing your dog may be symbolic of you feeling like you are intimidated by some level of powerful feminine energy, represented in the lioness, both to you and your loyal companions, represented symbolically by your dog. So I suggest, whether you’re a man or a woman (I can’t tell by your given name here, but women can also suppress their own power or other women’s power out of jealousy as well, ironic as that is), to look up these terms online for more information around it as a suggestion. 1. Types of sexism 2. Hostile sexism 3. Benevolent sexism 4. Ambivalent sexism 5. Internalized sexism 6. Gender stereotypes / Gender roles 7. The Take / Screenprism (On YouTube) 8. Wisecrack (On YouTube) 9. Pop Culture Detective (On YouTube) 10. Feminism journal prompts / Gender journal prompts 11. Feminism on Boredpanda 12. Always Female TV Tropes / Always Male TV Tropes (See both for an analysis of representation of gender in today’s media on the TV Tropes website)

  2. In a dream, my husband and I drove through a park with a lion and lioness in a field next to the road. We had our dog in the car with the back window cracked open. As we drew closer to the lions, our dog started barking and jumped from the car through the crack of the window. I tried grabbing him but missed. The lioness grabbed our dog and held him by his hind legs (around his hips). By this time, I was screaming, “No, get away from him! Leave him alone! Let him go!” And, out of the corn of my right eye, I could see the male lion in a pounce position next to the car, closest to me. However, it didn’t seem like it was in the pounce position toward my dog. I looked up, and there was a man in the outfield, on a tracker coming towards us as if to help. This all happened as the car was still moving down the road further away from my dog. I felt hopeless and defeated, being unable to help my dog. I thought to myself, “The man will have to help him now.” I wanted to get out of the car to help him but didn’t.

  3. This has been a reoccurring dream I’ve been having every so often.

    The dream starts with me waking up in a field with many lions and lioness walking around. All the lions are black and the lioness are sort of this silverish white. So my first instinct is to run but then I notice I have paws. I run toward some water (like a lake) and look and see that I’m a black lion. Unlike the rest of the lions however, I have a moon crescent symbol on my left paw and on my head. Then all of a sudden this huge wave of sadness / emptiness comes over me. A bunch of the other Lions and lioness come over to try and comfort me but nothing helps. So eventually I just lie down and close my eyes. I lie there for a minute and something just tells me to open my eyes. When I do, there’s a lioness standing over me but unlike all the rest of the lioness, she has a Sun symbol on her head and on her right paw. After seeing the lioness, that feeling of sadness and emptiness completely subsides. That’s how the dream ends…

    1. EspionageCookie

      Perhaps you were not a black lion, since lions don’t come in black, but a similar wild cat called the black panther? This makes even more sense with the moon crescent symbol on your head, in which it is associated with the Divine Feminine. This animal represents Divine Feminine traits or you could say royal queen characteristics, if not simply just strong nurturing woman type of traits. The lioness with the sun symbol might represent the Divine Masculine as well, with the lion species traditionally representing strong but compassionate kingly characteristics and the sun often representing the masculine. It is interesting that the “male lion” has the Divine Feminine symbol, and the female lioness has the Divine Masculine symbol. It might be oddly connected to gender equality in some way.

    2. Your dream seems to mean that you’re destructive but when you think all hope is gone a hero will save you if you accept it all dark will be defeated by light. God is Talking to you Trust Him.

  4. I just woke from a dream, in the dream I could hear a child crying while asleep and got up searching for this child (still don’t know who the child belongs to) never found the child. Then I was sleeping again and could hear the child crying but the crying got intense and I awoke telling myself something has to be wrong with the child. Went into the room and a lion was pacing around the child but it didn’t seem to have attacked the child just scaring it with its roaring, I was so terrified and then I woke up. That felt so real, I got up and my heart was still racing. Please help me with what this dream means.

    1. EspionageCookie

      Perhaps this child represents your inner child, which in the study of unconscious, represents the softer vulnerable version of you. The one that knows how to play, who wants to be nurtured, who wants to be comforted, and the one that wants to have fun. You can look up “inner child work,” for more details. It might mean that certain overly tyrannical forces might be scaring you with their roars like the lion, but as the lion does not really attack you, know that it might be nothing more than empty or unimportant threats.

  5. sapne me sher dekhna

    If you dream of saving someone from lion, it depicts your nature or character in your waking life. You know how to be there for others and thus, you are famous for your good deeds.

  6. Dreamed about living in a 2 story building, with my brother(rip now)living in one of the rooms and mins just opposite his. Sometime when I look out the window I see lion

    1. I saw lions attack people in my dream onknowing to them. Before night fall, my brother (late) locked up every where including my room, unfortunately a neighbour came home later, about opening the door for him a lion came from behind rushing to attack, but the door was shut against it. Unknown to another neighbour, running in so we could let him in, my brother(late), helped by going out to bring him in, and the lion got hold of my bro, so we all trying to help pull him inside, I woke up. Please I need interpretation soon enough, thanks

  7. Charles Asafo Adjei

    1) In my dream I was chasing a lioness on top of a tree to the ground.
    It wasn’t scary at all because I was confidently chasing it
    2) in my second dream I was holding a Cutlass from the forest running towards home

  8. I had a dream that I was at my grandfathers house, and in a room I was surrounded by lions in dog cages. I let them free, and I cuddled and stroked the mane of the male lion. He nudged and cuddled with me, too. I pet the females, too although I was definitely more drawn to the male lion. and I felt so at home. I tried to free the lions to have them come with me. I led, and they tried to follow. But a woman showed up and she got very angry with me, and forced the lions back in the cages, while I was trying to let them all out again. What could this dream signify?

    1. Someone has refuse to let others exercise , total control over their life and destiny. Probably because of properties or belongings, which was made for everyone to benefit.

  9. Ashley Castaneda

    In my dream me and a few fill members were sitting in a living area of what seemed to be a mansion. I sat on a long sofa alone and to the left of the room we’re nothing but tall windows about 25 to 30 feet tall. Through those windows you can see the colors of sunset ending so it was getting dark. We had sliding glass doors which remained opened to the outside and where we were located seemed to be in a place of isolation/peace yet flat lands all around us as well as healthy vegetation. My family sat to the right of my on separate couches and we’re becoming nervous while they looked out to my left where the glass was. I then turned and saw it…a lion, healthy and twice my size. I was nervous too but rather than flee I chose to stay still. He came up on the sofa with me and put his face to mine and rubbed against me, then he laid his huge head on my lap and let me pet him. I still remained cautious yet continued to give love to this huge cat. Then I woke up.

  10. i saw 2 or 3 loins in my dream .loin killed more people they are scared about me also we are hiding somewhere but loin following but am safe finally.same dream 2 times came .its good or bad

  11. Hi, pleases assist with interpreting my dream?

    It is very unfortunate that i was dreaming day time while sleeping with a Girl i met in my new town, it goes like “my fiance was driving while sitting on her when i noticed a road block ahead of us, without telling her, i jumped out of my car the one that she was driving through the window and told her to drive pass the road block and that i was going to catch up with her later and on the other side, so i then walked following her. After crossing the road block, i came to realise that i was in the village, my Grandma’s neighbour hood but out of the fence and thats where i found my car parked by my fiance and yet she wasnt in.

    i then started looking for her but couldnt find her. while busy with that, an unknown guy passed by with a 5L container of water and while he was greeting me, before i answer him i saw a lion coming from my back. Since he was already inside the fence and leaving me out, i told him about the lion but only told me to run away or find some kinds of trees to climb on. despite many trees around me and him gone, i climbed on a fence poll but it seems the lion didnt see me, that it just passed by.

    While i was then trying to climb off, i saw another lion coming from the same direction as the other one but didnt see me too. After it, were two guys walking following it but yet didnt know or see it. I was just shouting to tell them of the lions when the last lion attacked them. One guy managed to escape, but meanwhile the guy with the water container appeared while the two gents were fighting with the lion, being inside the fence and i still climbing, without helping, he told me that the last guy will not survive such an attack before disappearing again.

    While i was then on top of the poll and looking at the two lions now feasting on their hunt (the dead guy), it then came to light that my fiance, the one that i have been looking for before the lions appeared is probably eaten up by the lions too. While i was then thinking about that, the girl i was cheating with woke up and complained of too much sleeping. That was its end. I woke up and called my fiance just to find out if she was fine. I hardly dream and if i do i forget everything before waking up, but this one, too bad it came day time and yet its not getting out of my mind, please help?

    1. Has anyone helped you with this dream?
      If not send me your associations: to your fiance, the other girl, road block, Lion, water bottle, your grandmother (describe her to me as if you want me to understand about what sort of person she is/was..also your fiance and “other” girl), fence vs. tree, two guys, etc. Once I have that I can give you an idea of what your dream was talling you.

  12.

  13. I found this page on searching my dream interpretation I had last night about a Lioness, it woke me up and I couldn’t get back to sleep, I was sitting by a lake when the lioness appeared behind me, she looked calm, however I got scared and ran to a wooden house, she chased me, I closed the door and on the other side she was turning the handle with her paws, she was strong but I managed to be stronger and she couldn’t turn it, then my partner appeared behind me and took over but he wasn’t strong enough and she was getting in, he was struggling. Does this mean I’m stronger than him😁

    1. I believe this dream is telling you to integrate the lioness strength for yourself. You do not need male energy to do this for you. Find your own lioness! She is trying to relate to you, so don’t run from your own power. Think of how great she is to know how to open doors with her paws!

  14. I had this dream where I was at a study trip to a lion conservation somewhere in India and that a group of male lions were attacking eachother and my fellow students but they were not attacking me. Also I ran away from the scene but they did not attack me. Can someone interpretate

  15. Thanks for the Lion dream interpretation. I just dreamt I was walking among a pride of Lions with my mother. They were in a back yard…couldn’t tell if it was my own. A Liones started chasing me and I managed to run & get away down a cliff but left my mother behind. At that point in the dream I felt terrible for leaving my mother behind. Wondering it’s meaning.

  16. I keep seeing the end of a lions tail, just in random places at the bottom of door ways or just swatting around and it’s quick, but I catch it in the corner of my eye I don’t know what this means, can anyone help me?

    1. Christine Alexandria


      The first thing I heard was you are being evasive about owning your own power.

      Also, since it is the tail of the lion, they are also inviting you to play more often… think of how a cat or in this case, lion moves its tail as it plays and ready to pounce on its prey…

      hope that helps

  17. i saw in my dream a big tiger who hurt by another one but come toward me and want to bit me but then i stand so quietly , and he became calm down and regret to attack.

    1. I just just had A very similar dream . I was in my friends neighborhood and the lion was beautiful.. it kept running back and forth on the side walk like it was charging for me but it ran past me as i was calm nd quiet, just staring. nd as it ran .. i had to like move out of its way before it knocked me down. As soon as i started to like run away nd get scared .. it then tried to attack me and i jumped on top of this car hoping it wouldnt jump too nd it didnt .. just looked me in my eyes growling .. as if the lion was trying to tell me a message and then it ran away again .. but i was still scared and ran into my friend house nd of course it ran after me. Then as my friends and I started to run inside ( my friends were taking me home supposedly but then we saw the lion and all froze lol ) we get in nd some how the lion finds his way in through openings that we blocked and then he started changing into a puppy and then I touched its head and woke up. Very weird dream but I love animals. So it was a very peaceful dream seeing the lion and it not eating me alive lol

  18. I had a dream I could see a light (almost white) lion (possibly lioness) standing in between rocks on the top of a mountain talking and singing (although I can’t recall what it said). I was below it looking up. Then I was at the top of the mountain and decided to walk back down. How should I apply the symbolism to this dream?

  19. I recently had a dream of a golden lion. I was in someone’s home, I assume male, not sure who’s house it was as I didn’t recognize it and never saw the owner of the house. As I entered a living room there wer 2 lioness (golden) sitting looking at me but not making any sound, and a golden male lion with his back turned to me, as soon as I entered the room, he turned around and started walking toward me. I sat down on the carpet with legs crossed and he proceeded to curl up on my lap (he was huge) he layed his head on my shoulder and fell asleep. I then woke up, I was never afraid nor did I ever seen the owner of the home. Sound sound was made by any animal or human. My Birthday is 01/28/1962 = 11. not sure if this anything to do with a spirit animal

  20. I tried meditation with a voice over, like those relaxation tapes where it tells you to imagine walking over fields etc. The point was at the end, when you imagine yourself turning away from a bonfire, you’ll come face to face with your spirit animal.

    My mind prior to the reveal, kept jumping to a tiger face despite trying to keep my mind clear, so i thought my own wishes were going to influence the reveal. However when I turned, I was faced with a big cat but one I’d never seen before so I had to research what it was.

    It was creamy coloured, pale but not stark white, thinner than most big cats, especially in the face. It was sat, eyes were narrowed as if wary but curious – like you would be on a first meeting. The cat was also female and slightly older looking.

    From my research, the closest similarity I could find is a white lioness. Does anyone know any different and where I go from here?

  21. Hello. I had this strange dream few min ago. As i was walking down road/walkway. I noticed a panther brown (thats what i took for however it looked like a young lion ,with extra hair slightly around hair and backnof the knees dont knkw why i kept thinking was panther during dream). I screamed at ppl around to hide and take cover and theyall went into stores around and i was not afriad or anything of sort i climbed on very low (maybe 5ft tall old school home /made of clay and wood) and lion just keep walking around on the street near me but not after me i picked uo some rock whichbi threw down by the lion (never hit him) and he stood up at two legs and stare at me for few sec. But i was not affraid neither was he malicious towards me. Then i saw 2 man come around and they were like his trainers or handlers i had a feeling . And i said not the best spot to hide from a pnather on a higher ground and man said yea u righ.
    Thing all those ppl thta i “saved” and took shelter some were from my work. Idk how to interpret that dream.

    Later on when i spoken with my spouse about what happen they said glad u not like so and so (name which i never hear of ). And theybshowed me video o man with other ppl there and cameras (he was lion trainer) and video was showing him seeing big lion laying down he was right next to him petting him all smiles and then lion bites his hand and rips it off, then bit him in a shoulder, ripped of second hand, and both legs one at a time. Very graphic. But that was just video i was shown.
    Pls shed some light on this bizzare dream of mine.

  22. Hi there,
    Yesterday night in my dream, somone asked me to shoot a lion.He was holding that lion’s head into the floor.But I shot that lion’s eye by mistake. Then that lion with all grief gradually started to change as a kid…
    I don’t know what exactly was that.
    Please help me to find out a reason for this reason
    Thank you

  23. I was being chased by a Lion. I ran into a room and held the door shut. There was a knock on the door and I can hear the lion getting closer. I opened the door just enough to let him in. Too my surprise my young son walked like nothing was wrong. I slummed the door just as the lion got to it. His roar was loud and he was pushing on the door. I looked to my right and there was a woman on the bed. She looked like my mom but then looked Iike me. (We don’t look anything alike) She was crying like someone she loved just died and I felt her pain. She said “I miss him”

  24. Can you please tell me what my dream means ? I just woke up. I was dreaming about calling my little dog. Two white lions both male, one staying farther off. The biggest white male was with a white femaleness wolf. They acted like a mated pair. At one point she sat down and looked at me, while he came up close behind and sat. Rhine her protectively. It was a shocking dream. When she got up he followed closely. But never menacingly. You could tell they were together.

  25. I dreamt of myself staying and playing with two lions and always fed them and they become happy. They seemed to be happy with me and I also seemed to be happy with them but the other part of me was scared of the lions and I wanted them to go. The lions looked sad and then I woke . can someone please interpret this dream for me.

  26. Lion, Kèn:ri’ks, speaks of Strength and Courage. But she also reminds me that Lion is the one big cat who does not hunt or live alone. Lion is the cat who cooperates, who communes, who Dances and Hunts with others in order to survive. Giving yourself over to others and trusting others requires more courage than most of us think. Lion does not stand alone. Neither do any of us. As someone with Asperger’s, I am not someone who plays well with others. Lion is a foreign animal to me and to all my Ancestors. Yet I know that I would not be here without the help and the love of so many friends, family and even strangers. My instinct is to stand alone, to push all others away. But that is the easy way, the fearful way for me. Real courage for me, the courage of Kèn:ri’ks, is to know and to remember that I cannot truly stand alone, and I do not truly want to stand alone. Real courage is knowing that it is love that has kept me here, and the courage of others. Real courage is being grateful to those others and that it is so. A group of Lions is called a Pride for a reason.

  27. Lion, Kèn:ri’ks, comes to me again with thoughts of a friend. But this time of a different friend. When you begin to doubt your strength and your courage my beloved friend, lean on mine as I have so often leaned on yours. We are together. We have always been together. And we are as strong as either of us may need to be. We can share this burden as if we have shared so many, together with Pride. Do not forget your fierceness. We walk together. We will always walk together.

  28. Hey there….just woken up from a dream where I was playing with what I thought was a sleepy dalmation puppy..but it turned out to be a baby lion who was beginning to play a little harder and I was beginning to get a little anxious calling out to anyone to help….to distract the little lion before I got accidentally hurt……
    Can anyone interpret this for me?

    1. You should not trust everyone, some one could betray you. Someone may seem sweet, caring or docile but could have dark intentions. Beware and practical.

  29. Lion, Kèn:ri’ks, speaks to me, not of myself this day, but of a close friend who is struggling today. Aside from courage Lion asks that you speak what it is you want from this life clearly, not just to others, but most importantly to yourself. Listen closely, my beloved friend. Be still. Be silent. There is one thing that you want to do in this life more than any other. It will not be a selfish thing, though it may require you to listen to the needs and desire of your self, rather than others, which means that it may feel self-ish at first. It will be something that you are afraid of admitting that you want. Something that you have always wanted but have put aside in order to pursue the life that you are now living. We all must live with our duties to those around us, but it is not doing them any good if we are making ourselves miserable in the process, because that will mean, intentionally or not, that we are making our loved ones miserable too. There must be something in your life that is yours. It will go beyond the easy general answer. It will not be “I want to be happy.” or “I want to be safe.”. Those are things that we all want and, in the end, they mean nothing if we are not specific with our self. Listen to yourself. Truly listen. Beyond the fear and the noise and the seeming confusion. There is something that you need to give yourself. Something real. Not a fantasy that cannot live in this world. There is a Lion inside of you roaring to be heard. Listen to it today. It is time for you to listen to the Lion inside of you.

  30. I dreamed I was walking ahead of a friend who was not very friendly. This former friend always used to do drugs. I decided to walk ahead on my own an started to enter a jungle. I saw a huge lion. I did not feel afraid, however, the lion started charging directly at me and was about to pounce on me. I put both hands in front of me, thinking I had no other weapons I would have to use my internal power to stop the lion. When I put up both hands, the lion stopped and bowed to me, remaining prone until I walked away. I know I had it under control and I would not be harmed.

  31. In dreams I sometimes see a golden lion statue. Like some times it will be full bodied or just the head. I’ve had two dreams one where in front of me are stairs and behind me is a fire place and to my left is a hallway but I can’t tell how long it is because after a few feet it becomes to dark to see. To my right is a golden lion head. In my dream I always look at the statue for a few seconds then I walk to the stairs and just fall down them and come back through the fire place and I just keep tumbling never stopping. Through the whole thing I can just feel the lion watching no emotion no anything just watching. My second dream is I’ll be getting out of my grandpas truckand I’ll look at this building that’s either an apartment or library. The full bodied lion statues will be just sitting there completely motionless like there protecting the building. I’ll look away from the statues for only a second and then I’ll turn back and then the lions will have moved into a position like there about to pounce still motionless. Then again I’ll look away then look back then they will be in a growling position. This time I don’t look away I stare for a bit. Ill turn to leave but before I completely walk off I turn back around again and they turn to look at me then go back into the sitting protecting position once again being motionless. I won’t get anything but an uneasy feeling but not fear more like content. Do these dreams mean any thing or are do they just both happen to have lion statues?

  32. Hello all:
    I had a dream of a lion coming toward me but I didn’t feel fear; nonetheless, a small cat jumped in front of me and started to hiss at the lion. Eventually, the lion left but he showed up on my property, just lying on a door step. Strange dream but I was never afraid.
    Can someone interpret – thanks

  33. Varshit Seemakurthi

    My mother got a dream that she saw a lioness got back of my shoulder asking her to release her cub. My mother released the cub and the lioness released me. This all took place inside a Hindu Temple. Can anyone interpret this?

    1. I believe that may be a sign that your mother was possibly being a bit too controlling or overbearing(probably from motherly worries lol), and this dream signified the need to release you and allow you to be yourself, which really is a way of freeing you both.

  34. I had a dream that I was at the zoo and a bunch of lions got out and they were near me and I backed into an area and a female came up to me I thought she was going to eat me but instead she put her paw on my stomach and sat down by me until help came and lifted her paw up to let me get help and I was told the baby was ok and woke up

  35. I have a white winged lion in my dreams and thoughts. He told me his name was Mulaka. Sometimes there is a black lion with him. When they are with each other they are like yin and yang. The black lion looks dangerous and mean but the white lion is the complete opposite. What does this mean?

    1. It means duality and balance, directly and very straightforwardly. Trust yourself and your perceptions clearly.

  36. I had a dream of a lion telling me to bow down to him.. I refused and he said if I’m not your God then who is?! And I said Jesus Christ is my lord and savior. He starts speaking arabic to me and I yell bismallah! .. my eyes start to close , I don’t stop yelling at him saying that Jesus is my savior the father is my god! You are not! I peek and see what he is doing and he was quringing walking back shaking his head.. then I wake up to my friend calling me… I need help understanding this dream, I feel like there is more to it

    1. The Lions are Gods noble messengers. Jesus Christ hims 😛 elf is considered a Lion. 😆 😀

    2. Hello there, don’t you know that Jesus is also known as the Lion of Judah! You just got visited by the King of Kings in a dream and you call Him Bismillah you need to start reading the word and get familiar with what Jesus’ different names are seriously I would also leave you shaking my head as I left if I was the Lord. When Moses saw the burning bush in the desert did he doubt it was God, he took off his shoes as he was instructed because he was on holy ground. Please read the word let it be in you so you will recognise him next time.

    3. I think you did fine in YOUR dream. Yes Jesus is the lion and the lamb but I don’t believe that every lion you dream about represents Jesus. There is also a scripture that refers to “our enemy the devil prowling around like a LION seeking those whome he can destroy.” It seems that your impression in the dream was that this lion was NOT your God who is Jesus. God created you uniquely and even your dreams will be unique. So you need to think about what all these things symbolize to you individually. Do you feel positive things about lions or negative? Do you love them or are terrified by them? Also you have to think about your thoughts and emotions from the day before the dream. Did you recently question your loyalty or someone else’s? Check out Unclesirbobby on google. I have found his information regarding dream interpretation to be very helpful. Good luck and God bless!

    4. It means duality and balance, directly and very straightforwardly. Trust yourself and your perceptions clearly.

  37. ive been having dreams of transformation, in each dream im becoming a lion, each dream in different in prespective but the message is the same TRANSFORMATION!!! i really dont know what this means although ive done my reserch as to what it may mean, but in my dreams there is this lingering feeling like someone is watching or searching for me cause their presense is felt in every dream. can anyone help me understand these dreams. i know they say people always dream, but this is the first time in awhile that i have remembered my dreams and that means something!!

  38. I was meditating last night and spirit of the lion came to me ! it was so majestic with a beautiful Mane ?I saw several different images of the lion and then finally it showed me it’s self with a Kings crown on the top of its head ! ? Any feedback please?

  39. I dream’t i was sleeping on the lawn and 2 mail lions approached me, one lay at my feel and one on my left side. I was terrified. then a lioness came and lay on my right side. I called to my wife to make a distraction so the lions would leave me and i could escape. The lioness said don’t worry we are here to protect you. I said how did you know what i was going to do and she said I know everythnig you are going to do before you even think of doing it.



  40. I had a short dream, seeing a golden with mildest orange coloured lion, doing a slow run towards me back and forth, and I was thinking it was chasing me, but it didn’t really, and when I was trying to run away, it came to me and placed his feet gently on my left shoulder, and as seconds goes, I could feel his impact stronger, and I couldn’t lift my shoulder, the more i tried to push, the more he’s pushing my shoulders down, so it had no choice but to struggle myself today come out of dream. When I woke u, I could feel that impact as though as it happened for real. It was 6.30am. What it could signify?

  41. I was in an open field.
    In the far distance I saw a Lion running in my direction; at first I feared not.
    As he neared with his continued speed I realized he may be after me…
    I began to run checking over my left shoulder watching has a gap closed between us and listening to the strength of his approach.
    There was no out running him; my anxiety was extreme.
    Then he was there just feet behind me… I started to feel stronger and was running faster-
    Seemingly empowered at his presence
    The two of us were running side-by-side
    The king was at my left and I was on his right-
    Like partners in the wild

    What ever could this mean??
    Are dreams just dreams
    Do they signify something??… Have a greater meaning or message within??

    Who knows

  42. A few weeks ago i had another dream about when i woke up in a bathtub in a room full of glass vases and i went out and there were lions all over my yard and a weird lady in a green dress sat on top of my chickencoop and laughed at me as tried to run back inside my house and said you might be able to outrun them but you cant outrun a tiger and then a tiger walks out of my barn runs toward me and then i wake up what does this mean!?!?!?!

  43. A few months ago i dreamed i was walking on a trail with my cousin and stepdad and we saw a lot of lions on the side of the road but my stepdad wasnt alarmed so neither was i and then they started talking to us then they saw an animal that they could eat and then they said to me theyll be back to eat me later and then one picked me up in its mouth and ran off with me it dropped me and came back to get me but i woke up before it got there and i dont know what it means

  44. the other night i dreamt that a male lion was running towards me but didn’t attack, i woke up. so i have no clue what this means if anything

  45. 7-8 years ago I went through a period of worthlessness and endless strongholds that left me completely empty and lonely; I had an individual in my life that would plant seeds of restoration which lead me to ring her on a particular day and ask for the help that I felt I needed to hear… She took me to Hillsong church and to my unexpected realisation that I was supposed to of gone through what I had endured to really understand that it was my up bringing of this undiscovered presence that I was exactly where I was supposed to be at this exact moment. During the welcoming prayer with my eyes closed I opened myself to receive whatever it was that was meant for me I saw a gold shimmer wisp through 3 rows I front of me and as it drew near me I saw a lion’s head which then transformed into a mans; which I could not ever recall the defined features…
    Over the years since then (and I have not been a committed attendee I must admit so this is not a D&M on a regilous stand point) spiritual events have occurred and changed my mindset for ever… The reason for my acknowledgment and post is to identify a reoccurrence of a lion presence in my life currently; that is at night as I go to sleep but firstly my initial memory of this when I saw a ‘thing’ (blob/ Rock maybe) it was solid and in the distance so no real identity it was just there- as I tried to focus on it it turned to me and I saw it was a lions head – the eyes were piercing, regal, authority was prominent yet secure, trusting and it melted me to weep. Since then I have had numerous visions of a lion head that has spoken with a voice so resonating it had vibrated through me but I don’t remember what is said or if it’s even English. I had a cleansing done by a friend who offered to do this with me and the experience was extremely surreal; she had not felt or seen this intensity with any other person but herself… I explained what I saw throughout the time and she confirmed the archangels present and the lion in which I’ve been visited by. I’m not sure what I’m seeking or even if I need to but for some reason this site has appeared as I was searching the word ‘Wolf’ for again an unknown reason I am promoted to express and wonder what anyone may know if my experiences here…. I’m intrigued and searching for personal development and knowledge if there is a kindred that may have something to share or say to me. Thank you

    1. @Renee I usually don’t get too into these things(Wolf :P), but that one line you wrote really struck me suddenly, that you had gotten to this page by searching for wolf. I identify, and have my own experiences with wolf, and raven, but on a whim I checked out Lion today while thinking about a friend.

      Seemed kinda odd, so figured just express my thoughts in case they help, or w/e lol. Like I said I know a lion, she is very close person to me, and therefore I have some experience dealing with one, and similar experiences she has had lately. With what your describing, if you’re at all like her, sounds like your internal pride(not a bad thing), is trying to tell you to follow it somewhere, you either don’t feel capable of achieving, or realize yet. What ever it is, its a big deal in your history, or for history if you’re getting that kind of feedback from various sources I’d think too. Corny, but I think your totem is perhaps angered you are looking for personal development, as it may mean turning from who you already are, and maybe there is absolutely nothing wrong with who you are, just what your doing with that person which is the true issue.

      Again, just off top of my head, Lone Wolf here howling off 😉

    2. Renee, I have a lion or tiger for a spiritual guide. What this means to me is what strengths and weaknesses these animals posses is something to inquire about. Write out a list of traits there is in nature for these animals. The roles they play in nature is also to be considered. Then write a sentence next to each trait, or role they play about yourself and how you display those traits in your life, to help narrow down what it’s trying to say. So example the ones that you aren’t doing or not applying or ways you should could be, can indicatie a direction to take and what it is trying to say. To find a meaning behind your thoughts meet feelings about the sighting or interaction. Society in general bases a vision of a higher power keeping us lambs in check, or thoughts or feeling based on what we can relate power and such too. The term lion means something religious to some but to you it could mean another thing shooting symbolism in your life. So don’t be put off by religion it just a different way that people need or have or like to hold on to for fear of having to be accountable all the time to know they can be forgiven by something bigger than themselves. It’s simply no true. We are accountable to ourselves and those we love, and the earth and we are enough. No need to bring in religion. Base this in counter off from something much more personal.

  46. I’m a Lion





    If you are a true lion then respect and stay with those you love and show no mercy towards the impulsive people…now roar in a desperate need for attention, lion out!

    Since many years this dream keeps coming back to me, I have been seeing this dream several times, the lion has never attacked me, but the very thought that the animal is around, I am scared and I start defending myself. I start closing the door, window of the house I am staying in. I start protecting all the people in my house. It never attacked me nor did I go and try to fight it back.

    What would this mean? am I scared of something or someone?

  48. I, recently I had a dream about a lion scaring me. But after that I saw my grandfather riding a white horse and then after he left. The line started bowing to me so I really don’t understand the meaning of my dream and maybe I’m just not meant to understand it.

  49. I was out in my daily hike in our forest with my beloved dog. I rarely see wildlife in 5 years here. I’m suddenly having to relocate from this beloved home. Last week, out hiking a mountain lion came from my left side and ran in front of me – gorgeous & literally breath-taking. My dog chased him, I chased the dog. We reunited in ten minutes and no lion around. I still get chills, and know this was a message for me from lion. My ascendant is Leo, and the one that is a great teacher of mine is a 12th house stellium with 4 planets in lEO no less. Its his land I live on and am no leaving as well. Powerful. Thank you for this site. Its beautiful. Thank you Mountain Lion – safety and freedom surround you always……..

  50. I had a dream i was fighting a black lion. I had a whip and I was trying to keep it back. i think it was also talking to me. I woke up before the fight ended but i do remember he was getting closer to me and i started to panic about what i was going to do. i think i moved away from it then i woke up.

  51. I had a dream that all of a sudden I was at someone’s house that lives in a different dimension inside the house where these black adolescent lions which were actually pets for someone who lived in the house they wanted to play with me and we’re trying not to harm me but didn’t realize as they were playing with me they kept biting me on my butt like a dog would but they didn’t realize they were kinda hurting then I saw the presence of the man stand up and walk out the room and all the black adolescent lions followed him out the room and as I was trying to leave out of the house, they started coming back following me. Then l woke up what does that mean????

  52. I dreamt of a black lion. The lion was trying to attack me and I was pushing him away and I woke up. 10 minutes later I fell asleep and I had the same dream but this time I saw my mother. (She passed away 3 years ago.) What does this mean?

  53. I just woke up from a dream and was breathing heavily after I woke..i had been reading the night before about spirit animals and thought mine was a dog…but in my dream I was worried because my pet lion had gotten loose…I found it in a yard and was scared because I thought it might hurt me…it came at me and I grabbed it by the mane…it didn’t harm me, but was too powerful and escaped once again…I chased it across the street and onto a front porch where a lot of women were… I was worried it was going to harm them, but it made a sharp left on the front porch and ran past them all…I chased it down the long front porch hallway (its a dream!) full of people and saw a shadow of a woman, about 50ft away. and combing her hair….I felt panic for the woman and yelled “watch out!” and then I woke up…this JUST happened and I had to write it before I forgot the vividness…

  54. So, a few months ago, I had this awesome dream.
    I was at school, and the cafeteria people were serving mustaches. Somehow, a mustache jumped off the plate and said to me that He was waiting for me. I didn’t know who He was, but I just stood next to a big glass door. Right when one of my friends-turned-bad opened the glass door, a griffon swooped me up, and into the sky.
    The griffon was brown and gold, with beautifully outlined feathers. When we were flying, I felt the wind in my face, and the griffon’s soft feathers touch my hands.
    We flew up to a big dark building, and landed on a brown platform. And right in the middle of it, a golden light shimmered, and a huge, lovely lion appeared in the middle.
    I felt like I knew that lion before. His eyes were gentle, and caring. He looked at me with great pleasure. I was an ant in front of him.
    “Child, your journey has begun”
    The amazing lion disappeared before my eyes, and I was back in the cafeteria, staring at a huge sign that said, Proud as a lion!
    I never knew what that dream meant, but that lion was the prettiest thing that I’ve ever seen. This site helped me a lot, and I lived up to my true potential as a lion. :mrgreen:

  55. Today as of October 21st of 2015 I was somewhere on a stage between the hours of 6:30 a.m. or 6:30 p.m. I don’t understand why this came to me but I was dreaming about a lion a big brown lion then there was a brown door and on this stage there came tons of water but the water was clear and the Lions will come out after the water came through my understanding is I’m trying to figure out why I dreamed of this but I don’t know what does that symbol mean someone please help me I will talk to my father in heaven and see what he says thank you

  56. Hi..
    Yesterday (18 july 2015) i had a dream that i recently got married and one night i looked up i saw a lion face on moon.
    Then again @ 12 midnight i looked up and saw a whole lion on moon it was huge. Two ginnie pigs also came and loved me. What does it mean? I dont remember the time but it was aftr 1 a.m.

  57. Hi…I saw a dream where I was near a large field surrounded by a thick but a beautiful forest.there were some people around me.some were my friends and others were relatives.suddenly a black lion comes and starts hunting them one by one.but it comes to me and whispers into my ears not to be scared of him that he is not going to hurt me.i felt him very’s like I knew it before.please can you explain to me what it means.

  58. Pls I need to know what this dream signifies. I saw myself in my dream playing with a lioness and its cubs then a tiger appears from nowhere. At first I was scared, and then I saw myself luring the tiger and the next minute, the tiger was already under my control and so was the lioness and its cubs.

  59. Hi yes kinda scary my dream felt all to real I was first in a school being pursued by something than was waiting for school buses which sped off then was running off somewhere with friends outta nowhere a tiger and lion started fighting tiger was extra aggressive seen its teeth really scared me lion was fighting it off with all its might protecting me.what does this mean?

  60. I had a dream I was in an open field. A lion ran up to me. I hugged it. We were both so happy to see one another as if we were long lost friends. And no I hadn’t just seen that video.

    1. I had a similar dream where I was walking in an open field, and from afar, I saw a lion and our eyes locked briefly. But I was scared to stick around, so I proceeded to walk some more throughout the open field.

      The next thing I knew, he appeared and sat next to me, wrapping his long paws around me, and licking my cheeks.

      I actually was no longer afraid and felt loved and safe with him.

      I dont know how many years later, but I had a chance encounter with a man named Benzo who was standing near the elevator, down the hall from my apartment. I locked my door to get ready to leave for an errand. As I walked toward him, he said hello and gave me the biggest hug.

      After that wonderful hug, we exchanged our first names. Ever since that fateful day, we have been connected in a very special way. He was from Africa by the way. I believe we are soul mates.

      In that I mean we knew each other and we have a strong bond with each other from another time. Whether we will take our relationship to another level is up to him and where his path leads him remains a mystery. He was an aquarius according to what he told me. But I do wonder if he was actually a leo.

      Very loving and passionate, wise man for his years. Very intuitive and he really saw me.

      Amazing but true. He used to say I was like an angel, but I believe he was my angel, and there to save me in a way I had been denying for some time.

      Because I had suffered the loss of a child, my mother and father, and a sibling. Years before I was in a vety serious relationship with a man as well, who I later was told was cheating on me.

      So the very thought if meeting someone else terrified me, and I probably did not feel worthy. But my loneliness was becoming more and more difficult to ignore.

      He is now someone I consider my best friend. The rest is yet to unfold. I have no regrets and I am very blessed to have met him.

      As he opened my eyes to things I needed to address in my life.

  61. I had a dream last night that I was defended by lionesses and a lion from an attacking tiger. When the tiger jumped towards me to attack me, a group of lioness immediately attacked the tiger, and a lion nearby roared at the tiger. What does it mean when a lion defends you?

  62. I keep dream with lions since I am a teenager. I feel like the lions want to chase me, and sometimes they’re quiet or friendly.
    I wish I could know what that dreams represent.

  63. I had a dream last night that I had to park further away from a building I had to go to than I was hoping. While I was walking to get to my destination I saw a white lion and it was absolutely beautiful. But it was chained in a lawn like a dog. I walked by cautiously not wanting to disturb the lion but I couldn’t help but stare and the lion seemed agitated and wanted to break free. As I got further away from the lion and walked down a hill the lion broke free and came running after me. I woke up shortly after and I am unsure if the lion was coming to attack me or not. But I do remember being afraid but not in a way that I thought I was going to die.

  64. I have always loved lions ever since I was a kid, I’m pretty sure that the lion is my spirit guide but I have only seen it once as a kid in a dream. In the dream I was walking in a huge tall forest and three lions came out of the bushes growling at me. I was a little scared but I defended myself from the lions. and I haven’t had a dream of a lion since, my personality is also like a lion e.g. I’m protective, brave, fiery etc. Many years before I was bullied and had rough times but I don’t understand why the lion wasn’t there nor did it show itself to me. Btw my sign is Aries

  65. I am ten,and I have started having really weird dreams! Like me being surrounded by darkness and in one corner is a light shine down on a lion in a prison type enclosure. I free him and then I wake up! The memory stays in my head all day and I have the dream only on nights when I have something special. Example- a pop quiz in math I ace! I’m A Leo (August 8,2004) is this abnormal or is my spirit animal connecting with me via dream?

    1. Your numerology life path is 22, (8+8+2-0+0+4=22) which is that of the Master Architect. 22 is Double Eleven 11 which is the Master Intuitive. Eleven is Double 1, and 1 is Great Beginner and Leader and naturally resonates with the Sun. The Sun is represented in the animal kingdom by THE LION.

  66. I had a dream when I was a little kid that still stands prominent in my head.
    It began in darkness, pure darkness. Could not see anything. But I could hear one thing that could not be mistaken for anything else: a Lion’s roar. The moon then cast a light on the scene and right before me there he was: a magnificent golden male Lion. He continued on with a rolling growl as most Lions do and began towards me. I thought I was going to die. I wouldn’t be able to run from it or stand and fight it. So I fell to my knees and began crying. The Lion sniffed my hair for a moment and then put his chin on both of my shoulders as if knighting me. He then urged me up and to cease crying. Thinking it was God in a Lion form I bowed to him and he bowed in return. He began to turn and looked back at me, and roared before walking back into the shadows

  67. I have always felt an affinity towards lions since I was a child. Had loads of lion teddys and always wanted to watch lions on tv. Until recently I never really thought much of it. I have been intrested in animal totems and animal spirit guides since I can remember but never thought really thought about if I had one and what it would be. I’ve recently been thinking alot about lions without even realising it. I read up what a lion meant as a totem and could not understand. It didn’t sound anything remotely related to me. I don’t see it as being right. The only thing I could see was that I’m very protective of my friends and family and creative. I’m not confident and since I was a young teenager I’ve had alot of mental health problems. I have always felt something protecting me or trying to and trying to help me along. And I don’t know how, but I know that a lion has been there. As much as I am trying to say no to that, every time I do a lion pops up in my head and I feel a sort of presence. Is this right. Does this mean that this lion I always felt was there as a child is still here with me. I actually thought he was no longer there till a little while ago. How do I say thank you for when I was a child and teenager.
    Ok this has gotten a bit of a rant I will stop now.
