    This isn't just once, but a lot of times now. I always dreamed about tigers chasing me or chasing one of my love ones. This happened recently so I had to use google to find at least some answers why. And in my dream, before it could even bite me/us there's always a time where the tiger and I got a long eye to eye contact like, it's looking at me in the eye for a few seconds. I feel so angry but at the same time I was really scared. And recently, I killed two tigers in my dream for the first time. So since then I really hate about dreaming with tigers, it's a nightmare!! But I have this feeling inside me maybe because I was a tiger in my past life. I don't know...

Suddenly what I saw is a tiger is following the other one and people around started shrouting with fear of losing dere lives. But tiger didn't harm any1 even after being so closed to us. We safely landed to a plc like sum restauntant and started looking for my mum. I heard her saying that she is in loo n she is fine. Suddenly I saw me running here and dere since dere are multiple tigers running around n other stray animals are afraid and was trying to save themselves by taking shelter under the car and other vehicle. I kept running saving myself from ol . then I woke up being very disturbed . Can sumbody please interpret and tell me what it could mean ?

    I want to know why I dreamed to baby tigers one skinnier than the other. The Tigers became very hungry overnight and I had nothing to feed them. The growth was very noticeable and they started behaving very aggressive.

      it could me that there are some raw emotion that you keep ignoreing and stressing it will effect how others see you and the longer you hold in that fear or what ever raw emotion it is it will only get worst turning into self anger

    I got the tiger and my fiance got tje butterfly. On tje surfa efthis seems extremely ironic but upon deeper understanding is becomming more suiting. I jave had a reoccuring dream since inwas just a small child. I am at the first house i can remember livimg at...outside, just off the back porch cement steps in our driveway. I see an old upside down milk crate rattling...and even though I somehow KNOW its a cat underneath and its angry...I continue moving closer and closer until suddenly it SPRINGS out and wraps itscclaws around my throat. Then I wake up. Ive always said that I dislike cats and they me...a mutual dislike if u will...if my spirit animal os a tiger...what do these constant prominent ironies mean?
