Panther Dream Symbol – To see a panther in your dream can represent a powerful and protective presence in your life. Panther’s can indicate a fierce and aggressive personality that you might have. Panthers are very powerful animals and can also signal power, grace, and beauty in your life.

If a panther is stalking you in the dream, it can indicate you have enemies that are lurking in the distance. These enemies might be people you know who are spreading negative energy towards you.

Panther embodies power, courage, strength, and protectiveness. She can represent your fierce personality that fights for your rights and the rights of others. Panther can come to remind you to act with wisdom if you want to move forward. Alternatively, she can bring warnings of deceit of how others are trying to use you. Who could this be? Look closer before taking action. Protect yourself from the poison of others.

If attacked by a panther, it can mean people are slandering you, but if you kill a panther the accusations will prove to be false. A growling panther brings bad news and a panther threatening you can mean business problems. Fighting a panther can mean you will overcome any challenges caused by your enemies. Being stalked by a panther may mean your enemies lurk close by and may be spreading negativity about you. It is time to take a closer look at those you trust and hold dear. Protect yourself and have the courage to take action.

When Panther crosses your path

Panther crosses your path to remind you are protected. Do not be afraid. Stand tall in your truth with courage as you will not fail.

Black Panther

pantherThe black panther is one of the rarest animals in the wild. A black panther is a good omen and can indicate luck that will enter your life. These animals blend into the night and are fearless. The black panther can also indicate the lack of fear you have to the dangers around you.

It is rare to see a black panther in the wild. There a few left in the world. Fearless creatures, they are elusive and invisible in the night blending into their surroundings. Black Panther’s appearance in your dreams may mean you see yourself as invisible to others although you are outgoing. You may need to be more open with your communication to feel more included. Maybe your fierce focus and drive scare people away.

Or, maybe you are acting fearlessly in the face of emotional danger if Black Panther dreams leave you feeling confident and focused. It depends on how the dream makes you feel and the other things occurring in the dream on the meanings.

Maybe Black Panther visits when you live in fear. Fear of situational outcomes, people, life, success. Get the picture. We all have things that worry us.

Learn to give them minimal attention to achieve good outcomes. Is someone threatening you? Are you being bullied at work, on social media, or in life in general? Instead of wasting perfectly good energy on others’ toxic agendas, use Black Panther’s fearlessness to take the action you need to end it.

Although Black Panther cuts a frightening figure, she is no threat unless she feels under attack. Her message may be you have nothing to fear from what worries you unless you threaten what or who you fear in some way.

When Black Panther crosses your path

Black Panther visits to remind you to walk your path without fear. She teaches how to stand up to what and who makes you live in fear so you can move forward with integrity.

  1. I had a dream of a silky blue/black panther with piercing yellow eyes. I was afraid that it might bite me, I warned my family about this panther. But the movements were very beautiful and powerful. When I woke up, I realized that maybe it wasn’t trying to hurt me.

  2. I had a dream I was told to choose which panther to walk with me on my tour in a unfamiliar setting. The panthers was separated by 2 groups the first group was infant panthers and the second group was not fully adult nor a baby. The lady suggested I pick the older panther and pointed to 1 that was beautiful black coat with a hue of gold on its fur. I became frighten and said I chose none. The dream didn’t sit well with me I felt like it was symbolic.

    I was dreaming of a panther, I want fearful of it, but I was worried, I guess it dawned on me that it could make us to death….I was protecting someone, but I can’t remember who exactly. I saw the panther again, it came at me, but I faced it, it was on me but we were both standing, I was holding it’s face away from me, my thumbs went into its mouth, but I didn’t feel teeth, just gums, like when babies have no teeth….I don’t know what happened next I started to runway from it and the person I was protecting was in front of me. I looked back and what avsolutely scared me, was this loud sound followed by a huge bolt of lightening that struck the panther. It wasn’t moving, I had ducked down, I was so scared of the sound and lightening it woke me up.
    What does this mean??

  4. I was at my grandma’s house (who had passed). I was in her driveway. I saw the panther. I knew I was the panther and I was scared at first. Then swiftly it grabbed me. I thought I was going to die. But then no. It was hugging me and loving me. I felt nervous but so loved. Without words it said. Everything you are doing is right. You are on the right path and I’m so very proud of you. Do you have any questions for me. And it was very hard to think but then it said you will not be with Cade or anyone. Then I woke up. ….wow I’m pretty sure this was a message from my spirit guide. So very honored.

  11. I had a dream I was outside my house with my family. We were all dressed nice, but very dark colors. As I laid on the grass under my avocado tree a huge earthquake shook and a black panther came down from the tree. I thought it would run away but it came at me and but my cheek, but not hard. I growled at it and it growled back before eventually running away. I made my family all go inside the house before doing a round around the house in search of the panther, with an axe in my hand. Although I wanted to kill the panther there was a huge fear within me. When I reached the backyard I saw a bounce house and there was an odd man inside of it, talking about business over the phone. I went back into the house as my sense of fear of the panther was overwhelming, and then I woke up. What does this mean!!!

  12. In my dream after the black panther pushed its way inside it was very loving and I was no longer scared of it

  13. I had a dream that i was in my front yard ,laying in grass and a beatiful black panther came to me and layed next to me we cuddled and she was sooooo so soft when i was petting her . I felt calm and happy.

  14. I had a dream where I was at home, a male Black panther lying on the living rooms floor and I was lying next to him using his tummy as a pillow. I felt great love towards the panther and we could kind of communicate with each other with our minds connected. My mom didn’t quite like the panther so we left the room while the panther was consoling. And encouraging me through thoughts.

  15. In my dream I was walking at night with some friends and I noticed a white panther following us but more specifically me. So I told my friends to run I was scared but i ended up in this place with only 4 walls and one of them was a fence. The panther was following me and it ended up were I was and so did my two other friends but the panther did nothing to them. It got close to me and it grabbed my arm with its mouth like it was biting but it wasn’t hurting me in anyway. Them somehow I managed to kneel and I grabbed its mouth and closed it and tried to calm it down and it didn’t fight back. I kept staring at its eyes saying “it’s okay okay don’t worry I’m nothing to hurt you” second later i found myself petting it but still holding on to its mouth. Then i let it go and i told my friends okay at the count of three we’lol jump the fence. And so we did then I look up and I see more than 100 people watching our escape even the news channel was there and I just walked away. It felt so good honestly I ended up feeling confident and I felt like I made a deep connection with that animal this dream was a great one

    • Wow that’s funny, last week i had a dream me and an old friend were somehow flying on a parachute when we ended up landing in a dark field too far from home with 2 or 3 panthers, black. One bit me but it didn’t hurt and then we walked calmly over to a fence and jumped over it. Kinda similar to yours but my friend got stuck on the fence lol. I remember my cat was there too, he’s practically a mini panther, i just wondered if the dream was a warning that he may need another check up or something? Because i remember trying to cover him to from the panthers but they just stood still and didn’t go near him. Weird, sorry anyway glad i saw your post though.

    In my dream the panther was jus walking and moving like a panther looked me in my eyes as if she wanted me…she wasn’t afraid of me, nore I of her ..the look she gave me ,the feeling was all inviting I was ready to touch her ,she was way beautiful, shiny,big paws,and I never thought anything of this dream until I came across an Indian article of spiritual animal that lead me to look up my dream,would like to learn more

  17. i had a dream of a panther in my husbands closed, with striking blue yes like my husband, at thirst a was sceared then a felt calm and lovingly

  18. I had a dream that a panthers was chasing me and my girlfriend but one panther was all black I hid my girlfriend then mad the panther come by me. But it didn’t attack me. It had a chance to but it didn’t. So I got in a jeep to go back in get my girl but I then start thing about singing else I don’t remember… But it was strange to me. So I look up black panther dreams I don’t know what I was bout but some stuff I read were similar to me.

  19. I was in the forest and God had given me the power and authority to command the panther, it was in front of me and there was a lion to my right and a leopard to my left. There was light , I could see the rays it looked as if it were sunset and it was beautiful, the trees were tall. The panther walked up to me and I saw symbols all over the panther that I was able to read, they were purple pineapples inside of purple circles and because I was able to read the symbols I was able to command the panther. The panther walked away from me and I couldn’t believe that God had given me the power to command it so I had to test it. I said “by the power of God I command you to come here. It didn’t even look at me, it just started to walk my way again and I started petting it and playing with it as if it were a dog. God had given me this ability and gave me the dream because of how close I was with him. Sadly, I lost that closeness with him and now as of lately I dreamed of a wild wolf……compare that to a panther…. I think If i would have continued my relationship with God he would have given me the power to command the lion and leopard as well. When I commanded the panther I think I had one knee on the ground and I know my hand was on the ground, my right hand and It might have been my left knee.

    I had this dream. That I was in my kitchen and I was looking out of my window. I saw the panther trying to get out of my back yard. I got scared. My dog was standing against the wooden gate. He opened the gate and stood against the door to let him in. The panther looked at me and started to walk towards me. I quickly let my dog in, but the panther got in. It sat on the floor and looked at me. I stick
    my hand out to tell it that I’m no threat. Then I rubbed his head on my hand. Then I eased down and scratched it’s head. Then the panther turned into a male human. I guess it showed because I was so worried about a test I took.
