Animal Symbolism: Dreaming of Lizards

Animal Symbolism and Meaning of Dreams with Lizards

Dream Meanings of Lizards

I've gotten a few questions about animal symbolism surrounding dream lizards, and what it means when we dream of lizards so I was prompted to write a few thoughts about this unique messenger.

They are flexible and adaptive to their environment, and the human psyche translates this as being symbolic of going with the flow and overcoming adverse external conditions.

Due to their scurrying natures, quick pace and lightning reaction times, the lizard is considered the consummate escape artist. This makes them symbolic of our ability to recognize danger and remove ourselves from harm's way when the situation calls for it.

Within the human collective consciousness, dream lizards can be symbolic of many things. Check out the quick-list of lizard meanings and reflect if any of these associations click with your personal dream interpretations.

Summary of Symbolic Meanings of Lizards

  • Adaptation
  • Variation
  • Flexibility
  • Shrewdness
  • Quickness
  • Introversion

Lizards win many of these attributes due to their cold blooded nature.

Furthermore, most lizards are gifted with various forms of camouflage, and trickery to allude predators (like detaching their tails of caught by a hungry predator so that the lizard can escape to live another day).

These gifts of illusion are symbolic messages to us that within us (as children of nature ourselves) we have impressive gifts we may utilize for our well-being.

The lizard comes with a message about our responsibility to recognize these hidden gifts and skills so that we may avoid harm, and live freely and happily as we are designed to live.
