    So my spirit animal is a tiger, that’s why i see tiger pillars like these in my dreams???

  • Tarandeep singh

    I had a dream today where I had some fellow men and we were preparing for going somewhere and then decided to choose our rides. The fellow men all took a horse and I was unknowingly guided towards a tiger. All the fellow men spoke to me that you know it’s hard to control a tiger and how will u direct it but I spoke without hesitation that once chosen my ride I won’t give up and direct him according to me. The tiger stayed there patiently for me to come and ride him and I was almost on his back just when I just got aware I was dreaming and got too excited maybe and woke myself up. I also found out today in this very forum that tiger is my animal spirit guide. Any suggestions and comments are most welcome

  • Kirsten

    I know that I have a Tiger Spirit guide. I consider the Tiger to be my pet, and I dream about my tiger often. It was mentioned to me by 2 separate psychics that I had a tiger. I had already been dreaming of my tiger. In some dreams I am petting the tiger, and in other’s the tiger is just with me, in most of the dreams the tiger is in some form of captivity, either a zoo, or a sanctuary, sometimes it has more freedom than others. I think it is representative of some of the ways that I am held back in life by marriage, family, and finances. There is great fierceness in me, I am very brave, and usually pretty outgoing, I am impulsive at times, and don’t always trust myself. I have anger issues, that I find hard to control some times. So all the information above seemed to resonate with me.

  • Marc Well

    I’m a tiger I spends months home with my family. We live in a very isolated country. I leave for long periods to hunt bad people. I love intuitively finding real bad people. I don’t have to show any restraint, cause they will do what they can to escape,but I catch them hurting families, children, or animals. I use to be a very scary child, but now I’m very powerful tiger.

  • Naz

    I dreamt of a tiger grab me and drag me through pool of water. I calmly repositioned myself and as he jumped out again jump on his back. A gesture that I was not afraid. He then gently imprinted my right hand. I saw the imprint and cannot describe it. I feel pretty calm and balanced in my awaken life. Am I missing something. N.B.

  • Raicchen

    I had a dream where two cats were dueling with swords in a castle. The good and stronger one was yellow, and the evil and slightly weaker one was orange. They fought to the death, and the orange one destroyed the base of a pillar to let it fall on the yellow one, and the orange one killed the yellow.
