Dream Meaning #1: Be aware of your emotions before they sweep you up

A dream about a snake in water symbolizes the connection with your emotions. Typically, the snake comes as a warning sign or a wake up call about a situation that is potentially threatening and associated with strong feelings.

If the snake swims peaceful in calm waters, it means that you’re dealing with your emotions positively and with ease. If you dream about a snake that bites you while you’re swimming, it could be interpreted as a warning to pay attention to your emotions before they strike and go out of control.

Consider the type of water you or the snake swims in in your dream, your reactions towards the snake, and the behavior of the animal to interpret what emotional mood is influencing your life right now.

Dream Meaning #2: Snakes in water as symbols of emotional healing

If you are comfortable in the water and the snake’s behavior is friendly or neutral, it means that you are at peace with your emotions. The presence of the snake could indicate that you are healing emotional wounds or dealing with a situation that’s potentially challenging with ease. The dream may also reflects your desire or hope to clear some worries with regards to a close relationship or a situation that touches you deeply.

Even if you’re dreaming of swimming with snakes and are afraid of them in the dream, you may be facing difficult emotions in your life, but are going with the flow and trying to deal with them. If you are struggling in the water or with the snake, it indicates that you are resisting feelings or a change in your waking life.

    I’ve had a recurring dream about being in extremely muggy green water (a good example is dirty lake water) and hearing the voices of loved ones telling me to get out, but not seeing any way to possibly do that and having no clue where they might be. From the distance I see a snake swimming closer and closer to me, but I stay very calm and collected. Rather than let it bite me, I grab it by the head when it gets about a foot away and I rip it in half straight down the middle all the way to the end of its tail. I wake up feeling really strange because I’m an extremely gentle person. So here’s the two big questions… What the heck does this mean? And why do I do these strange things in dreams??

    I dreamt that I was standing on a white sand beach, looking out into clear but dark blue water. Sitting in the water, near the shore, submerged up to his head was a snake charmer with some kind of clarinet-like instrument. He was surrounded by about 20 large, thick, black hooded cobras in a circular formation, also in the water. The snakes were standing erect, but didn’t attack the man. As he leaned back into the water, I suddenly woke up.

    Was in a boat and had to step out for some reason the water was clear as I walked slowly through it then all of a sudden I’m surrounded by moccasins they start attacking me I wake up at 308a.m and that’s all I can think about is the meaning behind it the realness of feeling the puncture from the fangs was just to real.

    I had a dream that a python was resting and wounded on the edge of a cliff. It fell and landed in a water. When I looked down, I could see the snake resting on a dead fallen tree trunk, completely submerged under shallow water. It tried to gasp for air once, but decided to just sit under the water. It was staring at me and I was staring at it. The python was a copper/gold/brownishcolor with white eyes.

    I was swimming with my kids down a river and we were surrounded by snakes. I grabbed on by the neck and threw him away from us in one part.

    they kept popping up like weeds, and making it hard to swim in places there were so many.for the most part we swept them away and the didn’t bother us.

    It was disturbing how many there were and I was fearful about them atttacking us
