    I have a dreaming about snake 3rd time. at first time it was running so fast towards me ,and when it comes nearest to me it is just staring at me can I know what it indicates? and at the second time also it haven’t done any thing to me it is just seeing at me . I cant understand why the snake is seeing at me always. And the third time I saw a big snake(In Telugu we actually do puja to snakes) which have so many heads .I saw it in my big mom’s old house. In dream when I was showing the snake to some one it saw me and it touched me at head with its tail. and it can clearly see another person besides me but it touched my head. and I can say that when it touched me after that it raised its head,(which have so many heads) I thought of it is looking for me to do something .but it is just seeing me at this time also .all these are brown snakes and mainly at third time the snake that’s come to my dream was worshiped by us in this place. it is very big and with so many heads .can you please say me what the dream is about?

    I had a dream of I was in a house with people I know and I was taking a nap. I woke up flipped back the covers and a large sized python laid sprawled out in my bed. Ok in life I’m somewhat scared of em. So i left the bed went to the living room laid on the xounch. Well for some reason my cousin was in the room it but her. A guy that was on the love seat went to go save my cousin after asking me why I left her. The snake came up to me while I was laying on the couch and looked me in the eyes. Just staring at me. I didn’t feel at ease and I didn’t feel fear. I don’t know what i was feeling. I’m now awake and can’t stop shaking. Please explain this to me aomeone.

    Last night I dreamed about a poisonous snake that had invaded my house, and slithered along the baseboards in each room, over and over again. I was afraid to fall asleep in any of the rooms, for fear the snake would bite me if I didn’t keep constant watch.

    In reality, I am being treated for Stage 4 cancer, and also work for someone who is rather thoughtless about my situation. She cannot legally dismiss me, but I believe she would like to see me retire, so that she can hire someone younger and “healthier. I must keep my wits about me, daily, and work as productively as I can, but its stressful.  I need the employer’s health care insurance for my cancer care until I qualify for Medicare.

Then noticed it’s trail around a Sandy floored room I was exploring with someone. Upon exiting the room, glanced back. Snakes red scaled head watched us exit ,it was drooling . That was all.

    I had a dream last night that I was in a big building full of people young and old and sitting on a Sofa there was an old woman who had a snake wrapped around her, it didn’t bite her but it started slithering towards a child looking as if it was ready to bite it, so I pushed my way through everyone and grabbed the snake by its head holding its mouth closed. I ran outside with the snake but by grip on its head was week, I was not strong enough to press hard enough and the snake managed to open its mouth and bite me. I got a hold of it again and shouted out that it was a black mamba and I would be dead within but 30 mins , I needed to get the antivenom, I was shouting out to everyone please tell my family I love them, I’m going to die as I won’t make it to hospital. I was taken to hospital. The person who took me called ahead so they would be ready for me. I went to a desk still holding the snake head which was dead, there was no body left to it. I knew it was dead but I can’t remember how it died. (I think it’s head was chopped off while I was still holding it) at the reception desk there was a man who immediately injected me and I was saved. Then there was a discussions about how I saved all those people and that I lucky to be alive and then there were discussions about taking photos of the snake head and the man who gave me the injection wanting to keep the head for their records. I got the feeling I was a police officer or something like that and it was up to me to save the people especially the children and older people.
