Last night while i was communicating with my spirit guide, i asked him to show me my spirit animal and immediately like a flash i saw a lion resting,which means that a lion is my spirit animal. I am new at this spirit animal stuff so any advice will be appreciated.

Just for a bit of clarification on the differences between a totem animal and a one's spirit or power animal to help you understand the difference.
A totem animal is one that is tied to a group or a tribe of people. It comes from a Native American term for an animal that is allied with a particular clan within a tribe. Totem animals are not associated with individuals.
Power or Sprit Animals are those forms of energy beings in animal shape with which an individual might work. Generally they come to us because there is a particular lesson we are to learn from them. According to my favorite page on working with spirit animals that can be found at http://www.animalspirits.com/index1.html Lion's wisdom includes:
Letting go of stress
Strong family ties
So you might want to think about how these things impact your own life. Do you need to develop your own courage and strength? Do you need to work on strengthening the ties you have to friends and family? Where do you need to be putting your energy right now? Lion is there to help you accomplish these things and indicates that these are areas that you need to work on.
