Tiger Totem is My Guide

The tiger has been chosen to be my very special animal totem. It was a very wise Chinese astrologer who figured, that all of the tigers power runs through and determines my whole life. Since then I have made an intense bond with my unique animal spirit. Whenever I hold it tight while closing my eyes, I can feel it's enormous energy rushing through my entire body. This animal guide has proven to help me overcoming stress in tough times and to build up courage in difficult and threatening situations.

It also has taught me to be bold when facing any kind of danger and when dwelling in uncertainty, I start my visualization program, with my animal totem as the main object to concentrate on. This has never failed leading me into the right directions day in and out. My priceless power animal always shows me when to be extra cautious and suggests the exact and appropriate timing on when and where to approach a specific matter. Most people think that I have just a vivid imagination, when I am trying to tell them about my animal spirit guide but they are mistaken. My power animal also appears to me while I am asleep, during visualization and any other moment when his help is absolutely needed. It may sound strange but I think of my animal totem as the best friend in the entire world. I appreciate all the wisdom he shared with me and will keep it safe and loved until the end of my life.

tiger(white) NEW
by: Anonymous

I think I realized my new animal was tiger back in 10. I bought a tiger beach towel,every time I looked at it,the tiger seemed to vibrant,almost like it was protecting me.It called to me like I can't explain.Then I started looking at pics of white tigers. I had to print one,it was like that was "me",some how.I posted it where I could see it.Everytime I looked at it,I just felt good and reassured.

Thanks for sharing dreams; analysis
by: Kat

Good to see people sharing. To Animal Lover Dec 10 2012, curious if they had recently had a health scare, just before or just after having the dream; if so, turned out to be nothing? Tiger helped you express and survive your fear. I recently dreamt of both a tiger and a dog and sensed they were characterizing neglected aspects of my personal life: I was supposed to be house-sitting for my parents and I was about to leave in my car after collecting their mail when they arrived back home; my dad went straight to the house to check things out (while mom lingered on the grounds)and he looked at me confused and alarmed as he let a big auburn setter type dog and a magnificent tiger into the kitchen; they came to me with expectant looks of anticipation like, what I am I going to do with them today (the dog with a typical loving eagerness and energy up close, the tiger at a calculated distance moving with lanquid, precise steps) and I was instantly gripped by a deep sense of shame/regret/horror that I had completely forgotten to feed them over the last several days! Their ribs showing under their skin! I was thinking I must not let these beautiful animals die and hoped it wasn't too late. I fed them, raw hamburger to the tiger and chow to the dog, and brought water and though they both ate and drank ravenously, they both soon vomited up their meals and laid down exhausted. I set to cleaning up and trying to think how to get them fortified but felt worried they might not survive and guilty that it was because of me. Upon waking, I must figure out how to save the figurative tiger and the dog of my spiritual life. The tiger is the smart brave opinionated capable person I long to be professionally but secretly fear and surpress (for lots of reasons, one of which not so surprisingly has to do with my parents) and the dog is the fun-loving social confident person I used to be before I withdrew from my friends, stopped dating, and got fat (the fat of job and financial stress, of being underpaid and mismatched in an austere job market, and from the ensuing couch-potato-like exhaustion at the end of long chaotic emotionally draining workdays). I know only I have the power (a tiger's power) to revive those qualities in my life and rebuild my enthusiasm and balance (the dog alwasys in the momment) but like the tiger and the dog in my dream, I am weak from starving myself from constructive and creative activities. I hope they will visit me again to help nudge me along and I hope they reflect the improving health and well-being I wish for them -- and need for me.

C.G.Jung's Spirit Guide

Carl Jung turned psychoanalysis into a type of religion, he is also considered to be a transpersonal psychologist as well as a psychoanalytical theorist. He delved deeply into the occult, practiced astrology, and had daily contact with disembodied spirits, which he called archetypes. Much of what he wrote was inspired by this entities. Jung had his own familiar spirit whom he called Philemon. At first he thought Philemon was part of his own psyche, but later on he found that Philemon was more than an expression of his own inner self. Jung says:
Philemon and other figures of my fantasies brought home to me the crucial insight that there are things in the psyche which I do not produce, but which produce themselves and have their own life. Philemon represented a force which was not myself. In my fantasies I held conversations with him, and he said things which I had not consciously thought. For I observed clearly that it was he who spoke, not I. . . . Psychologically, Philemon represented superior insight. He was a mysterious figure to me. At times he seemed to me quite real, as if he were a living personality. I went walking up and down the garden with him, and to me he was what the Indians call a guru.

Animal Totem, Strength and spirit Guide

The Nature of the genii -- www.geniiarchetypes.com
Genii: a spirit that could change into human and/or animal anthropomorphic form and influence man by supernatural powers, disembodied spirit of any incorporeal supernatural being that can become aware to human beings as spirits, visions , or dreams. Spiritual being, supernatural being, an incorporeal being believed to have powers to affect the course of human events.

The power of these astrological genii archetypes can manifest a dynamic substratum (higher thought potential and Psychokinetic energy) not accessible to all of humanity but to the connection these vision may enter upon the foundation of which each individual builds his or her own experience of life, developing a unique array of psychological characteristics for this causal phenomena. Thus, while archetypes themselves may be conceived from the stars as nebulous forms of energy, from the formation of these stars may arise immense knowledge and power on earth for whom time will play a crucial factor in ones own development and future, (symbols of power and patterns of behavior). While the emerging visions and signs are apprehended consciously, the archetypes which inform you are subconscious. Being unaware of this connection but reminding you consciously, the existence of archetypes can only be deduced indirectly, day by day, examining behavior, images, art, myths, religions, dreams, etc. They are inherited potential energy which are actualized when they enter consciousness as visions or manifest in behavior on interaction with the outside world.
"primordial images" — a term he borrowed from Jacob Burckhardt. Later in 1917 Jung called them "dominants of the collective unconscious." It was not until 1919 that he first used the term "archetypes" in an essay titled "Instinct and the Unconscious".

Tiger spirit with me!
by: Tigerlady

I founder a tiger rescue center in Ohio 17 years ago, this year the Ohio laws changed and I was forced to rehome all of our rescue cats to three different locations out of State. This has been my life caring for gods beautiful creatures everyday, now they are gone from my life, and I have gone through much emotional grief. The other night I had some family over to spend the night, and someone took a picture of me sitting in a chair, behind me was a double door that goes out to my deck in the image of the door, there were two small spirit orbs,and the image of a tigers head and body, a freiend that was looking at the photos brought it to my attention days later! I was shocked to see this and started to research what it means, I had a very close bond with my tigers especially one in particular who is having a very difficult time at her new home.I truely believe this bond is in spirit here with me and she is my guide.

Tiger Dream
by: Animal Lover

Hello I find your page extremely interesting. I don't know if Tiger is my animal totem. I just made a search because I had a very interesting dream last night.I dreamt that I was in some sort of building, couldn’t realize what sort at first but I was on top of some type of balcony or a different type of stairway. I was at the top with some other people and I could see that someone below turned into a Tiger. It scared the life out of me and I ran! I thought, with my luck it’ll probably come after me and it did.The Tiger leaped up to the balcony in such a powerful manner! I managed to escape at first because it got distracted with someone else but it soon came running after me and roaring! I can remember that I was running through hallways and trying to find open doors when I realized that I was in some sort of hospital or surgery. I could feel it coming after me and I ran as fast as I could. I opened a door that lead me into a room relatively small ; I shut the door and tried to find a place to hide but couldn’t. I could hear the Tiger approaching so I just sat on the floor in a corner, shut my eyes and hoped for the best! The Tiger (unbelievably) managed to open the door and I thought that’s it I’m dead but all he did was approach me and sniff me. I was trembling , he just kept sniffing and after that he just walked away. I made a sigh of relief and woke up! That was some dream, will think about it for a while.
Thank you for finding the time to read this. :)

My dream
by: Anonymous

I had a dream a few months back that I was looking out my house window into my backyard and i saw a Tiger. The tiger slowly came forwards and with every step it turned more and more huma like until it was a man. I can't remember what the man looked like but I remember he was tan-skinned and had black hair. Do any of you know what this dream could mean?

I have more confidence today with my new business which is about to open it's door tomorrow, now that I have my totem animal: the tiger, beside me... thank you!

a dream more complex
by: Anonymous

I had a dream and it has been more of a daily dream every night, the dream is of a black setting quick glimpsis of a tigers eyes then teeth, and then whole staring at me and I end up seeing through the tigers eyes with a right paw forward in a attacking protective stance, fire suddenly surrounds then tiger in a giant circle flames enclosing and the tiger transforms into a pheonix flying up and stretching its great large wings the circle of fire becomes a shield of white light and fire

Very true!
by: Kimberly Dawn

I believe you about your animal totem. The tiger just came to me in a dream last night, two tigers actually and it was so vivid and real. Totems are very real, I actually believe they are part of us, they are us on some level of consciousness perhaps.

Thanks for creating this great website!

Much love to you!

tiger dream
by: omelis

A female tiger with her cub kept following me and getting into the houses I visited. At one point she grabbed my hand, but didn't hurt me. She wants my attention, this spirit guide, but I don't know what she's asking of me.

The Whit Tiger
by: Paula

I dreamed last night that I was on the roof of a building looking down, I saw a white tiger walking slowly and looking up at me, within seconds the tiger leaped to the roof of the building. I was laying flat on my back, the tiger walked slowly over my body and put his mouth over mine and I could really smell the breath of this wild animal. When I awoke I could only focus on the smell of this beast breath and was wondering if he was giving me the breath of life, I have not been feeling well lately and my blood pressure was at a life threatening level for several days.

Grrrrr
by: Bengali

I invoke the Tiger when I need to be stealthy in situations. Like, when I need to be present, but I do not want my presence known by others. I visualize my essence becoming soft, sleek, and striped to camouflage me so I can slip through spaces undetected. Of course, if I ever am detected, I know my tiger totem is fully engaged so as to allow me to escape (tigers are so fast and adept) or fight (with ferocious tiger power).
