Spiritual Meaning of the Lion

The spiritual meaning and significance of the Lion represents the sun and gold.

To connect to the Lion  totem and experience his energies go outside and find just the right spot, a spot in the sun that you imagine the Lion would like... sit down or lie down and soak up the glorious golden rays of the sun, just as a Lion does and feel the radiant energies giving you the strength and the wisdom channeled from Lion symbolism. 

It is here soaking the strengthening energies of the sun that you will make the bond with the Lion Spirit Animal and feel the energies enter your body, mind and spirit.

It is a transcendent experience ~ you are becoming Lion-hearted and you can tap the spellbinding power of the legacy of the king of kings... The Lion.

Egyptian lion symbolism conveys wealth represented by the solar energy of gold.   

Lion Spirit Animal ~ Symbol of Focus & Control 

What is the symbolic meaning of the Lion Spirit Animal? 

Lion spirit animal taps into the focus on self control, that true inner strength which is the ability to control and master your emotions.

Lion spirit animal teaches you to stay centered in your core power, the power stirring deep within your solar plexus. 

Lion teaches to rise above and control the urges of impatience in all that you desire.  

You have come thus far and you must rein in and master your emotions, because what you desire is now in full view approaching you from the horizon.  

Just as the Lion has learned through the ages, it is now you that must choose the power and take this spiritual journey where great rewards and sublime satisfaction await you.

Like the Dragon, Lion will come to claim payment of justice and of debts unpaid, but not forgotten.  Those that represent gold, and those that represent the matters of Spirit.

So beautifully presented in the Wizard of Oz, the Lion transforms into a symbol of courage.  In the movie, he shows how facing one's own fears is the hardest thing to do.  The Cowardly Lion shows us just how it's done in the timeless classic.  

Tapping into the powers of Lioness symbolism 

The sultry and svelte Lioness... you can't help but feel her divine presence of self knowing and self acceptance, she is the embodiment of self love.  

She is a regal mother, the Lioness totem animal is the great mother of protection.  

As she lives and hunts among her sisters, the Lioness is the quintessential teacher of sisterhood.  

Among the Lions it is the Lioness that hunts for the pride ~ she is the great archetype of the huntress, akin to the Goddess Artemis, who is the Goddess of the hunt.  

The Lioness spirit animal reflects once again the message of the male Lion... a great hunter must learn great patience and the art of timing, these are among the gifts that the Lioness totem powers have for us.

Together the Lion and the Lioness symbolic meanings bring the message to be brave, to know your own nobility, know your own value in the world.  

Find your authentic voice...  when you find your authentic voice nothing can stop you from attaining your goals.  

In addition to all of this... Lion symbolism brings a moment of profound clarity... this is your true power, the power you have been seeking...  the power  that will make you king among kings and queen among queens.

Dream Symbolism  ~&~
the Meaning of Dreaming of Lions & Lionesses

The Symbolism & Spiritual Meaning of Dreaming of Lions:

What does a Lion symbolize in a dream? 

To dream of the Lion is to tap into the supreme element of the spirit of dominion ~ in relation to self empowerment and claiming authority on your chosen path; the path that calls to your soul and spirit ~ and this is something that is between you and your divine creator, alone.  Others can help you along your path, but no one can tell you what your path is.  This knowledge lies in the heart, and it can take great courage to go deep within these caverns, and greater courage yet to follow what you have been shown. 

To dream of the Lioness you dream of tapping into the essence of the Divine Feminine. 

You may be in search or in counsel of your "sisters", Spirit may be guiding you to team up with another female that has the same vision as yourself.   

There are great things for you to discover that will only be found by listening to your dreams and your intuition, and slowly take each step one at a time until the opportune moment comes to pursue your target or dream with everything you have. 

Watch how the Lioness hunts, and you will learn her secrets of stealth, observation and patience. 

To dream of a Lion cub, you are seeking protection or a greater understanding of what it means to have the freedom and time to grow into what you were meant to be. 

This can come at different stages in your life, when you are making great transitions and need to know who you can count on to be at your side and have your back.   

Dreaming of Lion cubs can also mean that you want to look after the cubs, protecting them and giving them all that they need to grow strong and independent.

Lion Tattoo Meaning

  • The Lion tattoo meaning symbolizes the heart of the lion within
  • Tapping into strength, ferocity, and legendary courage and prowess
  • Lion tattoo also symbolizes the respect of boundaries.
