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.
