Griffon Attack?

In my dream I am in a house. It is dark inside but feels safe. Outside (the house is on the top of a hill covered in long grass) are children playing. I know that danger is near and try to warn the kids but they cannot hear me. From out of nowhere, a creature swoops down. It has the body of a lion and the wings and head of an eagle. At this point, I woke up. I never remember my dreams but this one stuck in my head. It isn't recurring, thankfully! I did not see the fate of the children, but I knew they were dead. Please send me a possible meaning!

Hi Graham,

Thank you for sharing your dream with us.

Houses in dreams represent your physical body and your Self. You mention how you feel safe inside in the dark. This may suggest ignorance - being in the dark about something. Sometimes you like not knowing. After all ignorance is bliss as some might say.

The creature you described as half lion and half eagle is a mystical creature called a griffon. In mythology, this creature heralds change. You seem to be against change. However, the children playing outside serves as a reminder for you to be more carefree and fearless. Children signifies growth and the future. In order to continue to grow and look toward the future, change is not a bad thing.

Best Regards,
