Animal Symbolism: Dream Lizards

Dream Lizards, Animal Symbolism and Meaning of Animals in Dreams: 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. As such, the human psyche can translate 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.

Summary of Symbolic Meanings of Lizards

  • 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 living another day).

“There is wisdom in the wild movements of nature.”

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.
