If you are drawn to the lion as your spirit animal (even if you are not a Leo sun sign), you face challenges head-on and often assume a leadership role. Opportunities don't pass you by, as you jump on them immediately. You find and use your voice in challenging situations.
The Chinese Buddhists believe lions safeguard humans from ghosts and spirits, so your big cat spirit animal may be protecting you from unseen negative influences.
If you are trying to reclaim your space in the world or in your social circle, the lion is the right power animal for you to call upon. Both lion and lioness are fierce protectors of space and of freedom. Those with a lion spirit animal are often devoted protectors of religious freedoms and the right to make personal choices.
The message of the lion is one of prudence...not to overdo things, to balance and weigh activities. (oh boy oh boy! is this message for ME?) They are the protectors of hearth and home, which includes de-stressing and relaxing.
Let's spend a few minutes with the lions...the only social cat group (the others are solitary), as one researcher asks "are lions lazy? Or just really patient?"

I feel a loss of words among your literally followers. Thanks for the clip on the Lion. The lion is also the symbol of Judah and there are many "lions" found in Jerusalem. Nice clip I found https://www.jpost.com/OMG/WATCH-Lions-get-their-morning-caffeine-fix-at-Israeli-safari-547123

In 2005 there was a competition painting lion statues. They were given to prominent artists some were sold or auctioned others remain in prominent places. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Statues_of_lions_in_Jerusalem#/media/File:Old_Jerusalem_Jewish_Quarter_Misgav_Ladakh_lions.jpg

What a great idea for a competition! I particularly like the ones with the scepters! So kingly!
