    I am severely afraid of snakes, I just woke up from a dream that one was exiting a whole in the ground. I was safe but it was highly focused on my son. At first the snake looked big but had round eyes so I knew it was not poisonous. I told my son to slowly move towards the house but the snake was fixated on him. Finally the snake came towards me at the door of the house. It changed shape and color to a small pink corn snake, I shut the door but accidentally shut the snake in the screen door. I know I have to free it but in doing so it enters the house. I face my fears, pick it up sonit doesnt bite anyone and it bites me. It burns a little but I bring it outside and set it free once I know everyone is safe. I ended up not being rattled by it after but happy I faced my fears. What does this mean?

    Last night I had a dream that I was bitten by a snake. The next day after I was bitten I woke to find out that there were tons of snakes surrounding my house. I couldn’t leave so I went and laid down and while I was laying down I looked at my leg and saw a total of five bite marks, one was starting to have little puss bubbles on it. After that my oldest sister which I don’t get along very well with came in, picked up a snake from by the bed and was terrorizing me with it.

    Last night I dreamt I was into a an old dirty saloon when suddenly someone randomly yelled “watch it”… as I opened the door to the saloon I saw this snake coming towards; it was fast. I got in the saloon, by then the snake had reached the door and was fighting to get in. I was using all my weight to hold the door closed but this snake was strong. It was strong, aggressive and persistent. I’m not scared of snakes so I don’t know where this dream was coming from.

    I had a dream last night that was full of different scenarios that I can’t fully remeber but what I do remember that the dream was about my dog that just passed away a couple of months ago . In my dream I see him living on a farm near where I live he’s happy living his new life there when he see me we’re so happy to see eachother .
    Later in the dream. My dog amd I are in a wood area .  I see a big snake hidden behind a rock near us. I’m nervous about him getting bit and if it’s posionees. So I try to figure out a way to get the snake away from us before my dog sees it and try’s to attack it. I can’t do it. My dog sees the snake and attacks it he gets bit I grab the snake and get bit as well. I end up killing the snake. And then I’m freaking out if it’s posionessand check my dog wounds and mine for sweeping. and my mother appears and says that this snake isn’t posioness. Then I woke up

    Last night I dreamt I was being chased by a rattle snake and I was so scared . Next vision was I was holding the rattle snake by the mouth closed as not able to bite me while the other hand was holding the end of the snake where the rattle is. It was in a protective box but was making the noise of a rattle . I woke up very quickly.

    Last night I dreamt that I was in a yard and, there were two huge pythons (coiled) just lying there like they were sunbathing. Of course, I was scared and trying to get away from them. I passed by one, then happened to look back and saw that snake viciously biting into a dog. I turned to run, but there was the other one in my path, just coiled, not even paying attention to me. I was scared stiff, but tried to sidetrack it, but then I woke up – trembling. What’s with that?!

  • Molly Ames

    The last 2 nights this dream replays over and over in different variations. But the basis is always the same. I come home or I wake up to see that my snake has grown tremendously, like up to 6 to 10 ft, (I own a corn snake) and has escaped from his cage. I follow a slime trail like you would see on a snail or a slug (which a snake wouldnt leave) and find him in a man made pond or bathtub. Sometimes inside and sometimes outside (last night he went outside in the snow.) I carry him by myself back to his cage and remind myself I need to upgrade his enclosure.

  • Jess

    My dream last night. I was trying to run through some water and was jumping over these red and black snakes. I knew one was going to bite me. The biggest one latched onto my ankle and I had to get rescued because I couldn’t move. I remember it being very painful and these red and black snakes were everywhere. I hated it.

  • Jeremy

    I dreamed of a green snake chasing me and a pregnant couple. We were in what seemed to be a tree house. At first the snake was big but after climbing two floors it got smaller but faster. It was chasing me and as I fled away running and jumping I landed on the head and body of the snake killing it.
