    I had a dream there were 20 deadly snakes in my bed. The tiny ones were red and black, green and another was bright red. The largest 2 were yellow, red and orange. And the other one was blue, black. I felt terrified inside but let trying to contain where they went to protect my daughter in another room. When I questioned myself where they came from they started to escape the bed. And when I realized someone had given them to me the frenzy of escape escalated and they would climb walls or go into my closet. Always together and always passive aggressive. When my daughter came in she was fearless and picked them up and put them on the bed. When we covered them we heard a snap and realized they had broken through the bed and wooden floor and started doing weird movements on the sand. I then panicked and realized I needed to call someone because New Zealand doesn't have snakes and this many would cause chaos. When I called for help no-one knew what to do. When I drive to the police station I stopped to see 2 snakes, one black and one white, fight eagles and seagulls. Only to die. When those birds started to chase me, a huge crocodile crossed our path. Flashed it's teeth and the birds were gone. When I arrived for help everyone was calm and taking their time desire the urgency of the situation. I heard a knocking to my right and when I looked the snakes were outside the window all looking at me then as they hiss in unison. They crash threw the window and kill me.

  • Heather
    I've had a few dreams about snakes. The common theme is there are always many of them, but I'm focused on one in particular. They are all supposed to be venomous, but the one I'm focused on is the most dangerous, supposedly it's bite will kill me instantly. It is sapphire blue, and in each dream I'm bitten, but it ends up being almost insignificant, barely a scratch. I'm told it will kill me, but it doesn't even swell. In each dream they are invading my space, one dream they were all over my bedroom and in my bed. It's while I pick it up with my bare hands that I get bitten. I'm anxious, but not really afraid. I really think the color blue is significant, but can't find anything about blue snakes.

    My dream that the snakes was curled up starting at my head to my waist size and they was mainly huge but yellow and white and one had blonde hair and I believe talked. It scared me when I saw them but afterwards I wasn't. A baby was in a carrier on the floor and one was around her but as if it was protecting her .
    • Shawtyl69
      I should have said it was like 5-6 of them but they didn't try to harm me nor anyone else. The one that talked even said boy get off of me. It just was looking at us.

    I had a dream that I woke up to several yellow flat headed snakes crawling in my bed as I opened my eyes. They had 1 eye and there was 1 very small rattle snake in the bunch who moved quickly throughout the bunch towards me. I could hear his little rattle, like a clock ticking as he kept charging at me with an open mouth. I seemed to be more annoyed by the snakes than afraid. Especially with the rattlesnake. I got out of the bed but the flathead, one eye snakes were still in the bed as the rattlesnake continued to charge at me. There was no resolution but I woke up and it was over.

    I had a dream featuring a snake crawling into bed with me ; but then I woke up still dreaming. I flung myself off my bed in the middle of the night thinking it was still there and it was real. I was sleeping on my side and in my dream it approaches me near my stomach crawling into my bed to get to me in the dark.It was over a foot long and had dull colors (kinda Python print) but it had distinct characteristics of black x's running vertically up its body's that the lighter color underneath formed a diamond shape in contrast. I thought it was real that I jumped out of bed and turned the light on. I proceeded to check everything for a source thinking. this gor myself paranoid and anxious about the incident to fall back to sleep.

    I have had multiple snake dreams. In real life i am scared of snakes and cannot stop looking at them when they are near me, but in my dreams its almost as if i welcome them. I typically have dreams about small snakes and in one of my dreamss they were sucking on my fingers. In another dream it had they were in a cage and i let them cuddle with me on the couch.(The snake was big in this dream) My most recent dream i had was i walked into a room to grab my son and this tiny black and yellow snake was laying on him. So i grabbed the snake and he was chilling on me for awhile and then started going into my shirt and thats when i started to be a little scared. I asked someone in the dream to remove it and as they did it got stuck in my shirt. All of my friends werent threatened of the snake either.

    I keep having a reoccurring dream that I woke up to a snake slithering off of my bed towards the side of the bed that's against my wall. Most of it's body is covered by my blanket while it starts to come out, I never see the rest of it either, usually I end up waking up. The snake is bright yellow with red on it and maybe a little orange. It scares me because in my dream it's my room exactly, the bed, sheets everything.

      I've had the same dream, the snake was like an anaconda very big around and red with yellow and under my blanket in the bed with me, in my room, and I was terrified, as it slowly moved out of my bed, and I very slowly moved away from it, almost paralyzed and could not move , and as soon as it was out of my bed, BAM I was standing in my ex friend/family bedroom. And her blanket was pulled off and the same snake was in her bed only I feared for her, it left my bed and I made a forced movement away from it, but she was stuck in the bed with it and didn't seem to know it was there
