Puma, Cougar & Mountain Lion

Meaning, Messages & Magic

Puma, Cougar, & Mountain Lion symbolize: climbing, the cosmic mind, and inner power.

There are times to be gentle, and there are times to assert your power. Now is the time for power. Puma helps you come into your power and test it.

It’s time to make a choice with no more hesitation. Puma helps you take charge of your life. It’s time to dig in your claws and climb out of the darkness. You are not stuck. You have incredible strength to climb to new heights and perspectives.

Puma climbs higher than any of the other cats to make sure its mind does not get distracted in the realm of over-rationalized, intellectual thinking.

Puma rises above thoughts of worry and the need to understand and explain things. Puma expands its mind up and out into the Cosmos to connect with the universal consciousness and find power, security, and comfort in the connected mystery.

    I meditated on puma as my spirit animal and received a name for it along with a mantra to protect my aura and psyche. I also went t to Arizona and hoped to find puma shaped figurines, I didn’t find any. However I stumbled into a life sized statue of a puma when I gave up searching for the figurines and the feeling was overwhelming and powerful, I will never forget it.

      I love this! And isn’t ironic how, often times when we stop searching for something is when it shows up for us.

      I had a dream about a big, beautiful, tan colored puma. In the dream, I was hesitant to approach it, but it bounded over to me and rubbed up against me. Then it layed at my feet and showed it’s belly. I sat down on the ground. I was scared to pet it, but it nudged my hand for me to go ahead. I petted him and smiled. Then I woke up.

    I had a dream a few years back I was crying and I heard a voice, didnt see a face but the voice said, “Puma, look for the eyes”. and as I went walking I seen Jesus’ face etched in the side of a mountain much like Mount Rushmore. It blew my mind, and ive been searching as to what it meant.
    I began hearing voices in January of this year. This makes alot more sense then what my voices will tell me.

    Usually during my deep meditations images of natural landscapes and wild animals will appear. Today during my meditation I saw a beautiful Puma in a snow covered forest walking around, curious and content. I was searching for meanings and found this one here. Makes sense, thank you.
