Goanna Spiritual Meaning

The Australian Aboriginal word for goanna (Lace Monitor) is Wardapi in the Warlpiri language. In Australian Indigenous mythology of the Bundjalung, an area known as “the land of the three rivers“. The name Dirawong is given to a spirit creature, also known as the goanna spirit. The mysterious protector God the Goanna is a creator being of the Bundjalung people. He protects the people from the snake or serpent.

The spiritual meaning of Goanna is one of inner power and survival, learning to find your spiritual warrior within. Becoming the stronger of the clan, a leader in pride and kinship. As a creator being, he brings the rain through dance, while sun-worshipping, to conjure his most divine of comforts, a sun shower. In the desert, a sun shower is a life in itself, coming alive. He is content, due to his powerful earth magic connection of harmony and balance.

The ‘Old People’ say when you see a goanna
climbing up a tree or old log, it is calling for rain,
to bring life back to the land, calling to the spirits
who may be willing to listen and send rain.
