A few years ago, after quitting a leadership job of nine years, I felt completely uncertain about the direction of my life. The job was technically my first "real" job that offered financial flexibility, coaching creativity and the opportunity to positively impact the lives of others. Even though I was able to work my way up the corporate ladder into this position, my confidence in my ability to build a successful business was extremely low. I told God about my fears explaining that I didn't believe I had what it took.
Later that week I had a dream about a tiger. The dream kind of frightened me. I remember being asleep in my bedroom and suddenly hearing a ruckus and waking up to huge tiger standing in my bedroom. Slowly rising to a sitting position, the tiger and I locked eyes, it starts walking toward me. The tiger got up in my face, our noses touching one another; its hot breath brushed my face. For a minute or so our eyes stay locked then the tiger walks away. Remembering the dream upon waking, I knew the tiger appeared in my dream to deliver a needed message from the animal kingdom. The wisdom and knowledge the tiger brought me was exactly what I needed.
The primary meaning for tiger spirit is personal strength. This spirit animal appeared to prompted me to show courage and determination. Seeing this animal wisdom also delivered the message that I was overcoming fears and learning how to deal with emotions that once felt threatening, but now are becoming more manageable. In the animal spirit world, tigers could appear when you feel threatened by external circumstances or your own feelings. The tiger totem is both a sign of a potential threat and a call for courage to face the threat. When the tiger appears in dreams, it can be a symbol of strength, more specifically willpower. Tiger wisdom guides you in your ability to overcome obstacles in life or summon the courage you have within to defy challenges that are on your way. The expression “fight like a tiger” illustrates this point." (http://www.spiritanimal.info/tiger-spirit-animal/)
My dream was basically showing me my true nature and inviting me to trust who I was and trust in my God given ability to overcome any obstacle presented on my path. The dream was reassuring me that I was capable of building a successful business as long as I was tenaciously determined. There was validity in my fears about leaving my primary source of income to pursuing an area of life I had always desired to live but had never believed I could; the tiger was showing me my strength. The dream was telling me that hard work was in store and that I needed to be willing to fight for what I wanted.
