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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

    • 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.

    • 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.

  • 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.

    • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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?

    • 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.

  • 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😁

    • 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!

  • 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.

    • Loryn...

      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

    • 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

  • 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?

  • 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
