Dreams about lion

In the fantasy world, the lion is the most persistent fighter in life’s challenges. On the other hand, lions are signs of influence on the people around. Depending on the dream scenario, the lion can represent several things. For example, to dream of a lion means having the ability to overcome some of your emotional issues by getting in touch with the feelings and taming them, if necessary.

Some people dream of lions when they get a feeling of being preyed upon by enemies.

And it gets more and more interesting when you find out the nuances of those interpretations.
