    As a kid I became extremely sick at one point in time, where I kept having inception dreams, dreams within dreams constantly. They seemed nice at first, but after I a while I noticed something was up and I would be chased by a snake with a human deformed face that could pass through walls and only certain members of my family and friends could see, I would only wake up out of those dreams when the snake caught me, I reached the end, realized I was dreaming, or went to sleep in said dream.

    I had a dream including a rat, 2 lizards, and a snake… In the dream I heard the rat in my room so I woke up and it ran out. My mom went into the living room to find it, then that’s when I saw the two lizards. I also saw a hole in the front door that the rat made to get in.. that hole is also where I saw the snake. The snake did not come into the house. The snake only stuck his head in through the hole and looked around (seems like he was afraid of the rat).  Can anyone tell me the meaning of this dream

But when I reach the end of the road and turned back I was surrounded by a lot of snakes! They were crawling all over the place and the only thing in may mind was how to get out of that place as soon as possible!! Does this mean something?

    I was in front of a carnival game type shack outside a lot and it looks like summer and it’s hot but there was people breaking glass bottles by throwing quarters. Theres a part where I fall and there’s a yellow small snake about a foot that gets on top of me and Gabriel(my brother)is looking straight at me while I’m on the floor and the snake is on top waiting for it to bite me right in front of my left hand but it doesn’t bite me i grab the snake and throw it to my right side about 5 yards away and it runs back to me but I don’t have time to stand up quickly so as I’m laying on my back I feel it go under me and stop under my lower back and I feel it’s head move under my lower back as I wait for it to bite me I wake up.

    The night my bf and i broke up, I dreamt a large number of black snakes were coming towards me… as i looked up i saw a huge goldish and white python sitting in the middle of the black slithering snakes… my bf was trying to fight off the snakes especially the python… as if trying to protect me… what does it mean…

    • Ram

      Dear Cindy, I find that:
      • You were that ‘huge goldish and white python sitting in the middle’,
      • Your insatiable desire for sex with a number of persons was that huge number of snakes around you;
      • Black (snakes’color) was your feeling or sin for your uncontrolled desire to have sex with many men;
      • The single black snake struggling, either to free you to save his relationship with you or struggling to leave you, was your boy friend;
      Were you responsible for the break?
