When are snake dreams actually dream medicine?

There are dreams with snakes in them …

… and then there are Snake Dreams.

These dreams can signal a major life shift.

They can help you transform negative traits into positive power.

In fact, some snake dreams are so powerful they can affect you for weeks, months or even years.

Well, in this post I’m going to talk about the potency of snake dreams …

… and then I’m going to show you how to work with your own snake dream medicine.

Snake Medicine: Understanding the Potency of Snake Dreams

Most people have frustrating emotional patterns they don’t like, for instance anger, depression, bitterness, or low self-esteem.

But lying dormant in these negative emotions are great gifts. Working with your dream medicine is one way to transform those energies into helpful allies who can give your life more meaning.

According to Christina Pratt, shaman and founder of the Last Mask Center,

Our medicine is first a poison — like emotional oversensitivity or a hot, righteous temper that ends relationships and loses jobs.

As we mature spiritually and psychologically in response to our suffering, we are actually being transmuted by the poison. In that inner transmutation, we become able then—and only then—to transmute the poison in the outer world and bring it as medicine to others. The anger that once lost you friends, lovers, and jobs can become the medicine that makes you a potent, astute and trusted negotiator on an international stage.

What upsets us the most in every day life and drives us to ask for help is the dormant energy of our unique genius and the key to our soul’s purpose.

Your dreams can help you access this powerful process.

I’m Being Swallowed by a Boa Constrictor

In 2004, I was going through a particularly difficult and emotional time, and I needed to find a new channel for my emotions.  I was about to be ordained as an interfaith minister when something unexpected happened that sent me into deep resentment. That’s when I had the snake dream of all snake dreams.

In the dream I am standing ankle-deep in a river. I see a giant egg that is about 2 feet long and 1.5 feet wide. The egg is resting on top of a giant snake head.

The snake body is immersed in the water, but I can’t see it.

I feel a moment of panic because I know I have to let the snake eat me.

Now I am inside the belly of the snake. I can feel the humid moisture of the tight muscles as the enormous snake swallows me alive.

I am uncomfortable, to say the least, and deeply afraid as the muscles pull me through the snake’s digestive tract.

It was a terrifying, but soulful experience. One I am likely to remember forever.

Snake Dreams and (Shamanic) Initiation Ceremonies

Although snakes fulfill many roles in mythology, the Rainbow Serpent, an Aboriginal mythic deity, views this particular snake as initiator and teacher:

“The Rainbow Serpent is a gigantic serpent which has its home in deep and permanent waterholes and represents the element of water … In some tribes it is the object of … the cult of the initiation ceremonies. In a considerable number of tribes it is the chief source or one of the chief sources of the magical powers possessed by the medicine-men.”

Source: The Rainbow Serpent: A Chromatic Piece edited by Ira R. Buchler, Kenneth Maddock, page 126

During such ceremonies, dismemberment and death are common steps of the initiation process.

“The male snake-group … swallows the initiates into the ritually pure masculine age grade: from mystification through ingestion to intelligibility in defecation is the path that we are set upon.”

Source: The Rainbow Serpent: A Chromatic Piece edited by Ira R. Buchler, Kenneth Maddock, page 126

Although my dream snake was not rainbow-colored, it certainly shared many similarities with the Rainbow Serpent: it was enormous, lived in a waterhole, and swallowed me.

Without realizing it, I’d been initiated into snake medicine. At the time, I didn’t know what that meant, but years later I had another powerful dream experience that helped me understand.

This time it happened while I was meditating.

As I sat on my floor in a trance state, I suddenly felt a tangible presence behind me. I turned to look, thinking it was my cat, but with my inner vision I saw a very large snake slither by me. It was about the same size as the snake I saw in my dream and I wondered if it was the same one.

This snake had a distinct feminine presence. I asked her what her name was and she said, “Bethesda.”

My mind immediately thought of Bethesda, Maryland, but that seemed an unlikely link!

My deeper intuition, however, made a connection with the Pool of Bethesda. Admittedly, I didn’t know anything about it, other than to know the name, so I quickly researched it.

I’m glad I did …

The Pool of Bethesda is in Jerusalem and it is the healing pool referred to in the Gospel of John:

“Now in Jerusalem next to the Sheep Pool there is a pool called Bethesda in Hebrew, which has five porticoes; and under these were crowds of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed waiting for the water to move; for at intervals the angel of the Lord came down into the pool, and the water was disturbed, and the first person to enter the water after this disturbance was cured of any ailment from which he was suffering.” (John 5 2-4)

I continued my research and found something even more intriguing and relevant. In the 1st century BC, natural caves to the east of the pool of Bethesda were turned into small baths as part of an asclepieion.

Source: Jerome Murphy-O’Connor, The Holy Land, (2008), page 29

An asclepieion was a temple where people went to be healed. Snakes were sacred to Asclepius, the god of healing, and he often was depicted as carrying a staff with a snake coiled around it. The temple floor was graced with the presence of snakes that were allowed to roam freely through the rooms where the sick and injured people came to heal. Non-venomous, of course.

Perhaps Bethesda, my snake friend, was from this place.

Working with Snake Medicine

I didn’t realize it then, but these two events – my dream of being swallowed by a snake and my introduction to Bethesda – were initiations into my role as healer.

Not only did the experience help me understand the potency of my emotions, I am now able to call upon snake medicine to help transform my anger into healing energy.

Today, Bethesda is one of my main spiritual guides. She is more than a snake. She feels infinitely wise, loving and gentle despite her enormous size.

In my personal life and while doing healing sessions, I ask her for guidance and receive useful help from her in times of need. I even send her to help my clients when they need extra and ongoing healing help; they tell me they can perceive her presence.

Embracing dream medicine, whether it is from a snake dream or any other dream, is a process of integrating sleeping and waking dream information. It requires paying attention to outer and inner senses, which are often underdeveloped in Western cultures. But anyone who wishes to can learn how to develop these senses.

Developing Your Dream Medicine

1. Pay attention to your dreams, especially Big Dreams that capture your attention for long periods of time.

2. Notice waking dreams from shamanic journeying, meditation, or imagery that pops into your mind and acknowledge what happens.

3. Research your experiences to find out if there is a history that is foreign to you.

4. Work with your dream medicine. Ask your snake or other images how you might work with them to get guidance and help.

5. Then stay open to their visitations and dream guidance. You might be surprised. Even though you can call on them for assistance, they may show up when you least expect it. Just remember to pay attention to your inner senses. If you’re new to this, you may start seeing things you’ve never seen before.

Have you ever been swallowed by a snake or other creature in a dream? If so, share your experience below.

Also share if you’ve ever had an initiation dream that helped you on your lifework journey.

P.S. Please respect other people’s wishes and refrain from interpreting their dreams unless they specifically ask for your assistance.

    A great topic. I think snakes are misunderstood and widely interpreted with a collective voice instead of with personal meaning. I have not had any initiation dreams lately, but did have a series of snake dreams where I learned I was not honoring my need for privacy. I was putting too much of myself ‘out there’. I simply asked the snake in my dream what he wanted and the answer was basically to be left alone. He wanted to be private and coil up in his cool quiet corner of the outbuilding where I found him. I could only throw my hands up and say ‘You got it!’ I had a new appreciation for snakes after that and I was able to use the snake as a totem for my career as a writer.

      Hi Nicole – thanks for sharing. I agree: interpretations about dreams need to consider a person’s personal relationship with the dream imagery, in this case snakes. And I love that you asked the snake what it needed!

    I have had an increasing number of snake dreams this year, evolving from a fear of them to an acceptance. Some of them with messages from many thousands of years past.

    In my most recent dream-

    I am standing in front of myself. My other self is kissing my neck, in a very gentle, soft way. I feel at peace with my self.
    As we stand there, she becomes a giant snake, and opens her mouth to consume me, eating me whole. I can feel myself inside the snake and then I become one with the snake, birthing out of the snake as though it were a cocoon. Absorbing from the outside.
    My other self is once again standing in front of me, smiling.
    Now I become the giant snake and eat her in one swallow. I morph back in to my human self as I feel the other self within me.
    Then there is just the one, me, standing there, complete & serene.

    I truly look forward to my snake dreams now, as I do with most animal dreams. Although lately I’ve had dreams with other, larger, animals trying to eat me, chase me down. It seems, they too, are trying to get my attention!

    I have these recurring dreams: I am in my childhood home backyard. There are hundreds of snakes of all kinds and sizes. They part as I walk through and I have no fear. Another variation is similar but the snakes are attaching (biting) me all over my body and I do not feel afraid but they are very annoying. I just pull them off and more keep attaching.

    • Amy E. Brucker August 4, 2012 at 5:01 pm - Reply

      This is an interesting recurring dream. Have you ever explored the meaning in a group setting? Based on my experience with dream theater, I highly recommend gathering some people to help you enact the dream and then ask each person to speak from the character they played. If I play a snake, for instance, I can tell you why I’m biting you. It’s very fun and informative!

        Thanks Amy. No I have never explored this dream or any other in a group setting. The dream theater sounds like a very interesting idea.

    This is a timely post for me. I had a dream this past week about sea serpents. My husband died just 12 weeks ago and he was in the dream with me. Comments are welcome.

    Sandy, hugs. I had one recently about a sea serpent too but I don’t recall many of the details. However I have had a lot of snake dreams in recent years. Some with one, some with many. Most recent one was I had just fed the snake but I wasn’t happy about its enclosure and was concerned it would escape. I was worried about it biting us. Then it tried to eat itself. There was a little bit of blood and I guess it decided this was a bad idea because it stopped.

    This was followed by a big moth landing on my pet toad, Vivica. She came out of her hide and the snake tried to eat the toad. I had to rescue it from the snake’s mouth.

    I left the snake in its box but made sure the doors were closed because I didn’t want my granddaughter to get bitten by it.

    In another dream I was bitten by a baby rattlesnake. A Native American Elder helped me and put some mud-like substance over it. Later I removed the mud and the baby snake uncoiled and bit me again. The Elder asked me why I had removed the mud. I said I didn’t know. He just shook his head at me. Can’t say as I blame him because it seems to me this was an important dream.

    So Snakes are a repeating theme for my dreams. Likewise, Dolphins show up a lot too, and Owl and Wolf. I think the dream I had a few years ago of Owl and Wolf was actually an initiation type dream. Owl landed at the top of a wooded hill and Wolf appeared from the far side of the hill. They were both waiting for me to join them.

    Out of curiosity… does anyone have a better way of keeping dreams logged? I use a notebook but I do swear my handwriting is awful. It’s hard to read what I wrote in the middle of the night and also hard to go back and find specific dreams or recurring themes. I’m thinking maybe some kind of database for logging them, so that I can look up how many snake dreams I have had and when, and find them, instead of wading through old notebooks trying to decipher what I wrote.

    • Amy E. Brucker August 4, 2012 at 7:17 pm - Reply

      Lynn, in waking life, people who are bitten by a rattle snake and survive are thought to have snake medicine and are also trained to be healers/shamans. Are you a healer?

      Re: dream journals – I use my iPad and the Noteshelf App. I actually type my dreams in Word, and import them into Noteshelf even though Noteshelf has an excellent handwriting component. This app has a tagging system, so I give each dream as many tags as necessary (ie. snake, being swallowed, water.) Then I can look up all of my snake dreams and see when I had them and how they progress through time. I LOVE this app!

      • Lynn August 10, 2012 at 1:54 pm - Reply

        Amy, thanks for the suggestions on the app. I’ll have to check it out.

        In waking life I was bitten by the Columbian Boa – several times on different occasions. It was a pet my son had for a year or so. Not TOO BIG thankfully. This was not a poisonous snake. But it has left its marks on my fingers in particular – you can still see where its jaws clamped on and there is some residual puffiness to the areas on both index fingers, so you can physically see the outline of its head on both fingers.

        The rattle snake bite was in the dream. And it was a baby rattler. And if I recall rightly the baby rattler’s venom (in waking life anyway) is much more powerful than the adult’s. I found it interesting too that the Elder patched me up with mud with the rattler in place.

        I think it is possible that there are some “healer” possibilities. I seem to be drawn to herbs and have been since I was a teen. Also, I seem to have a fascination for shamanism. I have researched it a little. So maybe some more research is in order.

    Thank you for time and an opportunity to share snake dreams. Years ago, in a dream I was bitten by a large white snake. I felt at the time that it was an initiation. A few months later in a dream, I encountered a huge rainbow snake. I cherish the experience as powerful healing energy. A few weeks ago, White Snake returned. She is now ancient and covered with green algae. In the dream, she was coiled in a bird bath. Her body draped over the side and her long tail was coiled beneath the earth. I could hear her breathing. Then, I watched in awe as she snapped a flying bug from the air. I hope she will stay close by.

      Beautiful, Tallulah. I’m curious, what do you think this dream initiated you into? Anything in particular? Since you are a healer in your own right, perhaps it was an initiation into healing, but I’d love to know your thoughts. Thank you for sharing. Did you create an art piece to go with it. :)

    Snakes for me provide a deep but fluid connection with Earth, with Gaia. One of my teachers, Rosalyn Bruyere once explained that snakes in dreams can be indicative of kundalini or life force. As with a caduceus. She also opined that one of her (ill) clients kept rejecting snakes in her dreams, and it wasn’t until she accepted them that she felt better. It’s curious that I don’t in this moment recall my dreams of snakes, but my sense of them is they remind me that consciousness never stops at the boundaries of my skin. I am because we are. My waking consciousness often brings me to be around snakes.

    But I have many visits in waking life with snakes. Having three decades experience as a meditator and being an amateur naturalist, I always appreciate meeting them as a moment of sublime transcendence. I remember each of these special occasions as times to connect with Gaia and remember what she has been.

    Have lovingly held snakes many times. Reticulated python, Rosy boa, Indian python, Mojave Desert sidewinder (I was 17 years old), Pickering’s Garter snake and many others. I’ve seen two Gopher snakes, a Garter snake and two rattlesnakes in the past year, up close. Photographed two of them.

    Y’all might like the serpentine art of my old friend and herpetologist, Tim Shields, at http://www.timshieldsart.com/category/image-galleries/Scalies%20and%20Smoothies. I was with him when I held the sidewinder.

    Blessings and peace to all.

    For me the snake represents the ego. A friend shared a dream with me that was both powerful for her and for me. We often bounce dreams off of each other to help get a broader perspective. In her dream she saw a beautiful coral snake with alluring long eyelashes. As it came towards her she became frightened and ran away. She ran in to an outside shower with wooden walls and she climbed up to hang on to the shower head so she could lift her legs off the ground hiding from the snake. As she looked up the snake was wrapped around the shower head.
    I asked her if she was the snake how does she feel when the girl runs away from her. She replied “I have something important to tell her. I must catch up to her”. I then asked, “How do you feel as the snake looking down at the girl hanging from the shower head trying to get away from you”? She replied ” Disappointed, I have made myself beautiful so that she would except me and want to hear what I had to say”.
    This conversation not only changed how she felt about the snake but how I now see snakes as well. I see the snake as part of my ego that I need to embrace. The snake and the ego hold valuable information about myself that I need to use as an ally instead of suppressing out of fear.

      Your dream exploration technique is very useful. It’s one I use often when I teach dream class. Although I appreciate symbolism, I prefer the method you mention it helps the dreamer get beyond other people’s ideas of what snake (or the image) means and get to the heart of what their dream is trying to tell them.

  10. Aleks Blumentals August 7, 2012 at 12:49 am - Reply

    This bit may offer an additional angle – as eating the snake and being eaten by a snake undoubtedly connects one with a very deep, cold blooded aspect of the unconscious:

    “In its undulating movements and connection with instinct, the snake is symbolically equivalent to the intestines.

    Ingesting the snake was an image of the individuation process incarnating in the body as an illness.

    Just as the snake in the Garden of Eden resulted in Adam and Eve’s loss of innocence, so the appearance of illness means that one will be leaving paradise, voluntarily or involuntarily. To grasp the meaning of one’s illness means to lose one’s innocence, so eating the snake was like eating the forbidden fruit.

    For an orphan, the forbidden fruit is life itself and the creativity that belongs to life. Working with the unconscious for the sake of renewal meant defying the dictate of the orphan complex that one must not move forward into new life. ”

    I’d like to emphasize that all projections onto snake or any other image are personal. If a dreamer resonates with what’s being said, then the information is relevant. If the dreamer does not resonate, then the information is not relevant.

    Great topic Amy! Thank you. And thank you everyone for sharing your dreams.

    I’ve had two snake dreams in recent years that I can remember. The first was back in 2010 while I was in between job careers. This was also right before I made the decision to begin my shamanic apprenticeship.

    In the dream I was in a large apartment that I did not recognize. Snakes started appearing all over the place. I was trying to figure out how to handle them all and what to do about the situation. All of a sudden I was performing with my old band in the hallway in front of the kitchen/living room. The snakes never went away. They actually started wrapping around me and squeezing me. I was just trying to figure out what I should do.

    The second dream, I was trying to organize a music event gathering women musicians together to perform. I was side tracked and all of a sudden in a pet store. Someone had called me to pick a snake. I was looking at the snake and she was inside a meshed bag. I noticed it looked like she had a cataract in her left eye. A lizard jumped out of the bag and was moving around on my body. The snake just wanted to get out of the meshed bag to be with her lizard friend. I then woke up. (Note- earlier this year I lost part of my eye sight in my LEFT eye due to what doctors call “optical neuritis”. It turned out that there was spinal compression at the top of my spine causing what the medical industry would diagnose as MS.)

      Muriel, have you read The Shaman’s Body by Arnold Mindell? If not, I highly recommend it. He bridges psychotherapy with shamanism, and addresses body issues as though they were a dream. He shares a story about working with a woman with MS and about the potent messages her symptoms revealed. (Whether you identify with the medical label MS or not, this is a GREAT book, especially for healers.) Thanks for sharing your snake dream. The latter one is especially helpful to read since it relates specifically to health and wellness.

    Last week I had a very vivid dream about many different kinds of snakes that were all over my house, under the rug, behind the doors, everywhere! Whoever was with me got the snakes out of the house as I came upon them. I was very frightened and woke up still afraid. I told my husband and a few friends about my dream because it was so disturbing. BUT, that is not what is most disturbing. Today, out of the blue, a housekeeper at my facility came to me and told me that I was in her dream last night. She said that I was in her hallway of her former house from many years ago. She stated that I let out a scream/excited yell. When she asked me what was wrong, I told her that there was a snake. This all happened in her dream. I never shared with her or anyone else at work about my former snake dream. What does this mean? I am very freaked out!

    • Karen October 21, 2012 at 11:21 pm - Reply

      Heidi, I love snake dreams, and yours is awesome.

      If this were my dream I would ask myself: Are there a lot of different creative things going on in my head/life/house right now?
      To whom do they belong? Why do I need help getting them out? Is there a way I can give attention to the issues of creativity in my life in a way that they and my creative energy don’t get scattered all over the place?

      As I come upon these creative ideas or issues someone with me (or in me) is able to get them out. So, maybe I am more able than I think I am to deal with my creative projects. Maybe I need to reassess whether I need to be so afraid of them. Is there good reason to be afraid?

      If this were my dream, I would be curious about this ally who helps me with the snakes. I want to know more. I might ask to dream about this helper to learn more.

      Outside of the dream: That housekeeper may be extremely perceptive in sensing your energy. You may be exuding scattered creative energy or fear of too many projects! and she is reading you and then dreaming an accurate scenario. As a housekeeper she deals with people and their energies everyday. The fact that she has shared this dream with you has given you an insight into this realm of energy reading, and how outrageously creative the mind is.

      I also acknowledge that there are people who can co-dream, and can dream at a distance things which they have no immediate proximity to.

      Re the housekeeper referring to her former house: She may be recognizing that you are in a state similar to the one she was in when she lived in that house.

    Do you think you could help me interpret this dream I had last night? I would really appreciate it – from anyone :)

    In my dream the location was the house that I lived in from age 8-14.

    Situation I was in the actual day of the dream: bf has purchased engagement ring for me. I love him but don’t feel that the time to be engaged is right now and have asked that he waits a while for me to accept his proposal despite him having already purchased the ring.

    Narrative of Dream:
    My bf and I are standing talking to a random girl (who I felt I know but wasn’t anyone in particular? There was also another guy with this girl – but once I again I felt like I didn’t know him). My bf is standing without his shirt on and she starts touching his chest suggestively. I get angry and feel so betrayed (but do not verbalise it) that he isn’t doing anything to stop it but obviously enjoys the flattery. I walk upset outside to an open ‘desert’ sort of looking area not familiar to me and come across a long, moderate size snake. I feel that the snake is human because it raises up its head and is at my face/eye level a good two meters away – I felt that the snake was human? It’s eyes looked into mine and I felt that it wasn’t just a snake even though it clearly was. I feel that it is going to attack me so I throw an object in my hand not at it, but past it so that it hopefully becomes distracted and chases the object so I can run away. Instead, within a second it strikes at me from its distance because it is long and bites me just once, but it is fast and sharp in the neck. In the dream, I black out and wake up (almost like in a movie – next scene) too see a couple who are sitting at a kitchen counter who are in close promximity to eachother-their body language is affectionate towards one another. I felt that the man was my bf, but it didn’t look like him and when they went to lean in to eachother to kiss I woke up, adrenaline rushing for sure! In the kitchen were one or two other people, but I can not recall who they were. Nor was this kitchen recognisable.

    I would love any feedback Really confused about the dream.

      Jemma, great dream!

      If this were my dream I would be reminded that I did actually have a dream of a snake biting me in the neck, and that it seemed related to having a voice – to speaking with the power of truth and paying honour to my sexual power.
      So, I would see my telling my boyfriend the truth in my waking life as starting something very important – opening to communicating the truth no matter the consequences. The snake biting me may confirm that I have used my voice honestly in an important way.

      Also, I might wonder if I am jealous or suspicious of my boyfriend, and if that has to do with me and my past, or my boyfriend’s behaviour, or a combination of both. Maybe, like his naked chest, his motives are ‘laid bare’ to me. I would ask myself: Does it feel like he is asking me out of love – from his naked heart? Or does his asking me force the issue of acknowledging suspicions I have about him? Something is revealed here.
      Is the seductive random girl me in relation to him? Do I trade seductive behaviour to secure the relationship? Do I fear that if I “put him off” by not accepting right away that he will stray?

      I might also consider what was going on in my family when I was 8-14 years old that might affect my feelings about my boyfriend, marriage, and speaking the truth.

      I see the snake as a force of sexuality, power, and creative energy that is meeting me face to face and eye to eye. Though I am afraid of it and want to distract it, I cannot avoid the truth. In spite of my avoidance technique, I must be ready for it or it would not succeed in biting me.

      Through feelings of anger and betrayal I isolate myself. Is it unusual/unfamiliar for me to be alone like this? In the desert there are so few distractions – it is here I can meet the snake. It is not a time to be engaged. The snake has some things to teach me.

      The black out and return to a promising scene makes me think that the consequences of my speaking the truth will lead to a healthy union with the male part of myself. I am in a kitchen – a place of nurturing. In my dream I can’t be sure that the boyfriend in the new scene represents my current boyfriend. Certainly, by speaking the truth in my life and owning my sexual and creative power I will be more likely to manifest such an energizing scene in the waking world.

      The presence of others in the dream – like doubles – makes me think that the issue of balance in my life is important right now.

    I would be very grateful if anyone could help me shed some light over this dream I had last night. It left me very confused and woke me up.

    I have ever since very young been very afraid of snakes and use to dream about them all the time back then being all over my house, outside, coming out from the water taps and hanging from the walls and never really understood what it meant.
    However lately and with that I mean a good couple of years, I can’t even remember dreaming at all about nothing until about 1-2 months ago when I dreamt I was stepping on a snakes head and killed it and then I fell down a very muddy hill and couldn’t get up.

    After that nothing until last night. But then I had 3 dreams, woke up from them all but vividly remember mostly the 2nd one. I’ll say what I remember about the other 2 aswell in case it matters:

    In my first dream I’ve been grocery shopping and for some reason I’m leaving my bag on the ground asking someone, I think it might be an acquaintance, to look after it while I go back. When I return that person is gone and some people are tearing my grocery bag apart taking all my food and I get very upset and then I wake up…

    Second dream, I’m back at my childhood house where my parents still live but they are not there. I’m standing in the kitchen next to their very old fridge and freezers even though I know they have been replaced but also right in front of me has come out like a little bench that I’m standing behind but small enough so that I can still reach the freezer door.
    Then there is a big snake, like I think a boa constrictor maybe?, coming towards me from the hallway and I get scared as I always do and as I know it hasn’t seen me I stand very still hoping he will miss me.
    But he just comes closer and closer and is about to come around the bench so I reach for the freezer door and open and shut it hoping to distract him but he just looks there a couple of times and comes straight for me, wriggling himself around me. I’m not feeling like I’m getting squeezed to death but I’m about to scream for help when I feel his mouth coming over my face, stopping me , and then I wake up…

    The third and last dream after that I don’t remember much at all of but I know it was a sexual one of some kind where there were many of us with different numbers waiting to get called up. Not sure if that was voluntary or not but there were also mums with kids and peaks with numbers which seems odd. And a stage. I was on that stage doing something, can’t remember what and then I woke up.

    PLEASE, any thoughts at all would be so wonderful as I’ve been searching all morning for a possible interpretation but can’t get nothing.
    I’m turning 31, have been told I’m a healer but haven’t really gone anywhere with that apart from my profession as a massage therapist.
    It just won’t leave my head. I read somewhere that it might mean bad times to come or being pregnant and frankly I can’t get much worse off than were I am right now so just want some advise. Thank u very much for sharing ur stories.

      If it were my dream I would interpret it as having healing powers but being afraid of them, ignoring them. As Amy has said if you are being sent a message through dreams but ignore the message, it will become more vivid until you pay attention.

      Perhaps you had some traits of being different as a child which were discouraged, perhaps something happened to you as a child which has caused you to shy away from the truth of the dream’s message.

      I would say it is nothing bad at all…..just a message trying to be received…and that it is your authentic self trying to come through….snakes are associated with healers, healing.

    I just had dream last night that I was in a forest and I go into this really big cave and I go into it and out from the deepth of the cave comes a really big snake.It’s black and its bigger than me.I go into it’s mouth willingly and by the time I get to it’s stomach,it swallows me.By the time it swallows me it swallows me if I wanted it to or not.Even though it swallowed me, I wasn’t afraid of it.It didn’t have a frightening aura to it.That was all I remeber until I woke up.

    Thank you for the great article. I was having this dream of white snake that has been bothering me.
    I was at my childhood house in the room and a white snake quite big was sleeping on the bed and I was lying on top of the snake and was poking the snake with a soft bolster (I guess I was intend to play with the snake?). Suddenly the snake woke up showing its fang and tried to bite, I was scared so I grab the bolster and put in it’s mouth. I ran away outside the room and close the door hoping the snake won’t come out after me.

    I got out to the dining room, on the floor there was so many tiny birds they were so tiny and filled the whole floor. As I was going back to check for the snake, I swept the tiny birds on the floor with my hands afraid that I might step on them. I swept them aside as they were so tiny and hundreds of them. I was clearing my way to the room and peeping from the room window, I could see the snake was still inside slithering finding its way to the door. So I went to see whether the door is properly shut but there was a gap underneath the door and the snake making its way eventually got out.

    Now It was chasing me outside the room I grab a bolster out of nowhere this time struggling to avoid its fang, and once again I put the bolster in it’s mouth then ran away.
    I ran to the dining table the snake keep chasing me. I was standing at the other side of the table and There was a dog on the other side sitting calmly like there’s nothing happen. The snake coming from the other side and I tried to distract the snake to the dog but to no avail. So i was at the other side of the table avoiding the snake fearing that it will bite, while the snake on the other end trying to get me then I woke up.

    I’m trying to find what is the meaning by googling an asking people but it seems that I haven’t fid the answer and it still bothering me. The dream was so clear and real. I think it’s trying to tell me something about my personal life but I couldn’t figure out what is it.

    I had a dream earlier today that was of me riding in the car with someone and for some reason there was a small snake with wide white and red bands with small black stripes separating the white and red. My first instinct in the dream was to be afraid because I am afraid of snakes(any reptile for that matter) but it was in a clear plastic container. The snake was buried under some brush or something that was in the container but then the container started melting for some reason like the snake was hot. And afterwards it was gone. I remember starting to panic but then I woke up. From my research I think it was a coral snake but Im unsure of what this dream was about.

    I remember when I was young a vivid dream I had where a room was filled with this giant snake and I was crawling over it, I can still feel it’s muscular body and it was a bright vivid green. I have recently been exploring snake symbology and really connecting with it. Two nights ago I had a dream of looking in the mirror and seeing a black snake under my skin coming down into my forehead. Then, last night during a guided meditation I felt a very physical presence of a black snake sitting on my shoulder going across my neck.

    Maybe you can help me interpret all these symbols!

    I dream of a snake in a pool of water, and he was slithering up, and slowly opened its mouth, but did not attack. The snake was greenish black, then i dreamt of a snake in a jar of water who was alive and blackish green, and just looking around.

    I had a very vivid dream that differs from alot of what I have been reading about snakes in dreams in that it was a person who turned into a snake…

    I was working, the environment was not my work and the people differed from my actual co workers, but my behavior and actions were what I do in my job (I am an HR Manager and much time is spent in facilitating and providing resources for staff so they can succeed, which is what I was doing in this dream.)

    An individual who was struggling, and who I felt a strong sense of attraction and affinity to, turned INTO a snake and was darting around the room. Everyone around noticed the snake, but the fact that this person had turned into it was of little importance in the dream. He was a very small, salmon colored snake, which seemed important, and his movements seemed very significant as he was so fast and like he was searching for something.

    Every time he would come close to me (and only me) he would dart his head up like he could smell me, like he found what he was looking for, and try to get on me, sometimes literally “jumping” forward to try to reach me.

    I was not really afraid of the snake (which I am very afraid in my waking hours), but felt I needed to keep my distance so that I did not allow him to touch me. I knew he was not going to hurt me, and a very big sensation of conflict came on me as I wanted so badly to let him up because he was searching for me so hard, but I also knew that everyone around would notice and feel it wrong for some reason.

    I do not recall the end of the dream, but woke with such emotion over the vividness of this dream that I’ve been all over the internet this morning trying to find some sort of interpretation tools to help me figure out why this particular dream feels so important. Any thoughts would be so appreciated! :)

    I had a dream that I created a pond/stream area in my yard. A very long fat snake slithered between the plants. A very thin black snake was under the leaves of the plant that I was touching. Off to the side was a cave type enclosure that many raccoons were in with many baby raccoons. One raccoon was pushing a baby raccoon out of the area. I seemed surprised that the baby raccoon could move as it looked too small to be mobile. My dream ended with a feeling that I needed to put the pond/stream area back the way it was before someone got hurt or drown in the water of the pond.
    I usually do not remember my dreams, Any comments on what this might mean would be appreciated.

    I have had a series of dreams about a particular snake I know in waking life. These dreams are so vivid and really stick with me and I know they must be very important. I have had trouble interpreting them however, and since this snake is also with me in real life I do not know what meaning to extract from them (the dreams) or it (the actual living snake).

    In my first snake dream I am at a fancy reptile pet store with all kinds of exotic animals and poisonous snakes. I enjoy going around and looking at the cobras and giant anacondas but still feel slightly fearful of them. In the dream I see the beautiful white and black california kingsnake that I had admired a month before in waking life in a real pet store near my home. In the dream I decide to buy the snake and take it home in hopes of showing it’s unique markings off at reptile conventions around the country.

    I have never been to a reptile convention and do not really see myself as the type, the dream however really stuck with me and I felt that the fact that I was having dreams about the pet store snake was a sign that I should adopt it in real life and so that it what I did. I named the snake Blanko and felt very happy to be it’s new owner.

    A few months later I had a dream that inside Blanko’s cage where all kinds of other reptiles, lizards and turtles. I felt the need to take them out of Blanko’s cage so that they would not harm or overrun him. I am not certain now but I think I remember Blanko changing colors (very bright colors) during this dream.

    A few weeks later by girlfriend broke up with me the same day Blanko ran away. I was very distraught over both events and felt as if Blanko disappearing was some kind of message. Fortunately, I found Blanko after about four days buried in my dirty clothes hamper.

    After several weeks I had another dream about swarms of brightly colored snakes (pastel pink, purple, yellow, green, and turquoise) slithering out of the top of Blanko’s cage. Again I felt the need to remove the snakes from the cage in an effort to defend Blanko but more and more colorful snakes kept overflowing Blanko’s cage.

    About one and a half to two months later I had a very disturbing dream that Blanko was loos in a hotel hallway and that he was bloody and his skin was ripped. He kept shifting shapes and sizes and in some instances did not seem to be harmed but looked as if he was breaking out from a bloody skin.

    Ever since that dream, in waking life Blanko has been very agitated every time I get near or try to handle him. He rattles his tale at me warningly and will do so even if I get near the cage. He has never acted like this before. I know he’s just a snake, but it’s like he is mad at me.

    My dad died last year and shortly before I made a series of experimental films about “shedding skin” transformation and rebirth using the image of the snake and snake skin. It has been a very emotional and difficult time and the metaphor of the snake has proved to be very much a part of me, even before I started having these snake dreams or became a snake owner. Does anyone have any ideas what these dreams could symbolize? Do you think these dreams could actually be related to my living pet? I have had cats and dogs before but never dreamed about them. Can a real living animal be a totem, and can a totem be mad at you?

    Last night I had a very profound snake dream.
    Throughout my dream I was being followed and pestered by a large rattlesnake. Finally at the end of my dream I stepped on the snakes body so it couldn’t slither away and it bit my ankle (but I felt no pain or fear). Then i picked it up with my right hand and it struck me on the right arm then my neck (again, no pain or fear). After the third bite I bit the snakes head off and spit it on the ground, then threw the body to the side. Then I sighed with relief that the tormenting from the snake was over.

    Very interesting… I have my own thoughts on the interpretation of the dream but I am always open to others opinions. :)

    I have had the same exact dream for two nights in a row now. I am
    Not sure where I am, but I know it’s the jungle. I am walking along and I feel as thought I am being stalked by something. I look to my left then forward Again and I get eaten up in one gulp by a huge snake. The odd part is that the head seems like it is on upside down, becuase when it strikes it bends backwards to swallow me whole, instead of striking strait like it should. As soon as I get swallowed it goes all black and I wake up. I should probably mention he day before I had a dream where someone killed me

    Reaching out hoping for a more direct interpretation. Last night I had a pretty upsetting dream. I cannot stop thinking about this lucid dream. I can’t recall the last time I had a lucid dream like this, it has been a long time. Myself and my boyfriend were spies. We were being chased and trying to get away from the “bad guys.” There was a lot of chaos going when we were calmly asked to come into a room. A gift was presented to my boyfriend. I stared with confusion. He opened up this long pyramid shaped box and a poisonous snake jumped out and grabbed onto his arm. The people that gave the gift were trying to have him dead. I just remember being horrified and screaming. He was okay though. I’ve read quite a bit (seeing as I can’t stop thinking about it.) Having a hard time interpreting it. I’m not sure if this has some connection to the shift of conscious (12-21-2012) or if I need to look deeper than that. Any input would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Amazing how I came about this article. A week or so ago I had a dream and in that dream I kept a snake from biting me. I’ve always had very vivid dreams and always try to interpret them with my life and what’s going on in it. But this dream I didn’t really pay much attention to since the prior day I had worn a charm bracelet that was given to me years back by my fiance. On the bracelet there are many charms that were chosen for me by him, and there was one of a snake. I hadn’t worn the bracelet in quite some time and I was immediately fixated on this charm. I wondered why in the world he chose this charm for me. I was a little disturbed, a little hurt and a whole lot curious. Having forgotten to ask the question, I later fell asleep and had the dream of the snake. It was the only point in this long dream that I can remember. The snake jumped at me to bite me and I grabbed it, close to the head to ensure it wouldn’t, and fought it with great fear, then fear and might, then logic set in that I could fight this snake off if I truly didn’t want it to harm me. I didn’t want to harm it, I just wanted it not to bite me. Then I woke up, thought about the dream, tried to figure it out then automatically dismissed it once I set the correlation to the charm bracelet. I pay attention when things pop up multiple times, it’s a sign to me that I need to further research. Funny thing, I was just watching Harry Potter (haha) and in the scene there was the old woman who turned into the snake. My dream came back to me and I looked this article up. Thank you for the enlightenment of this subject and how not to fear it but to learn from it. My whole life has been a tough emotional and psychological journey and not until a couple of years ago did I decide that I would learn more about who I truly am. Feeling purposeless and dull, I have recently been trying to dig deep to learn and learn to heal. I know this is a long story, but this has opened up a door in my path that I have not been able to unlock. Thank you for posting this article.

    Hi! thanks for this article. My fiance had this dream today. He dreamt of a poisonous snake. We’re in a long distance relationship and planning to to settle down for the near future.

    I’M SO SCARED because my mom told me that snake represent a great temptation like how it was in the Garden of Eden in the Bible. :(

    Some repeated dreams with snakes are disturbing me from my child hood.

    I grew-up in my grandma house.There is a snake DEN in front of my grand mother house.Till my SSC, i used to put milk with puja along with my grandma.

    The dream is “I am sitting in credil in Hall.The day is Nagula Chavithi.A black cobra is standing on Muggu i.e., Colored drawing in front of Gate. I just kicked the snake from the credil,then it went and fall on his DEN”.

    This dream will come more frequnetly, til now its came min of 20 times in mylife

    Some times I feel very fear because I feel like snakes are chasing me,even when I am awake, so I will close all the doors ,when I am alone.

    Few months back I came to know I have Kala Sharpa Dosha. So 2 days back I visited Navagraha temples in Tamlanadu i.e., on 23rd Dec 2012.
    Really it great trip in my life, enjoyed alot,I am very cool,No fear for 2 days.

    On 25th Dec 2012 at 2.00 AM again I got a dream ,”A large snake its like “KALA NAGU” ( I unable to explain, it terrible) is sleeping in some street pipes ,its too long. My aunty observed that and showed it to me.
    It is inside the pipe & it was in Black,Brown & green combination color. I just got fear and called people near to me. In that one boy came & just beaten that snake. And that snake got very angry , he just running towards me & my younger sis, he did lot of blasting. It was under pipe,that too too large,so its taking time to come out from the pipe, in the mean time I & My sis went into the House and closed all the holes.But withing the fractions of seconds the snake came to me with his large Padaga and red tounges and tried to bite me on my face”. I just got wakeup from the dream, its terrible dream I never had before.

    Could you please anybody give any interpretation on this.

    As a rule I never remember my dreams but last night this one actually woke me up and in my half awake state finished said dream… I dreamt that I was getting into the drivers seat of a vehicle and had not yet swung my body into the vehicle but still had both feet planted on the ground and a male passenger had gotten into the car with a 6′ white snake. This snake pounced onto my back and remained there. My little yorkie appeared on my lap and was frightened that the snake would devour her. I was panicked because I desperately wanted it off of me, but never really felt that threatened as it just sat on my back. When I awoke at 2:08am, I continued to resolve this as I remember I kept telling the male passenger to get the snake off of me. I also remember that I wanted to swing my legs in the car and drive over the snake but the dream was complete, as was my sleep for the remainder of the night.
    i am not scared of snakes but wouldn’t want to touch one let alone have one on me, especially a big one like that!! I don’t understand what this could represent – anyone with suggestions please help!

    i was walking & down a valley were really big snakes every where so I turned around to go back. Walking back, up a hill, the snakes were smaller. A couple of smaller ones were trying to wrap themselves around my leg.
    I got back to a house and had been bitten on the back of my leg, only noticing at that stage. It was like a mosquito bite. I tried looking for anti-venoms in a cupboard but couldn’t find any. I was calm, Then when the nurses were told I’d been bitten by a snake, I worked myself up to crying but everything was going to be ok- it wasnt poisoness.
    Then I woke up on the verge of tears.
    What does this mean? I have had a lot of family issues recently but I can’t work out exactly what it is I need to fix to make everything better in my life. Do I need to mind my own business, shut up a bit, stay away from people? Change my views? (because my views are so strong I can’t see myself doing that). I am going through a new change in my life as I’m getting married in a few months and getting to know my new husband’s family. Is it something to do with this or is it the family I already have? Please respond

    I’m glad i stumbled on this thread, i had a dream last night and i’m struggling to interpret it, i hope someone can help.

    Basically i had a dream that there was a small to average size snake in my bed while i was sleeping it slithered around my body (i can still feel the cold scales on my skin even now). I was not afraid of it and it did not want to harm me, it seemed to want to be on my body. I say this because in the dream i would get up out of bed and the snake refused to leave, it just kept moving around me in a non constrictive motion, i could go about my business not worried that it was there. It’s like it was stuck to me, apart of me. It wouldn’t leave, i tried, albeit not too hard, to get it off, but once i realised it wasn’t leaving i left it.
    Any help would be great, thanks

      I had this a similar dream last night. I felt a large snake slither over my forehead and I felt scared at first but stayed still and let it go about its business. But I could feel the coolness from the snakes body temperature and I could definately feel the scales. In my native american mythology a snake represents a enemy. I would much rather think of it being a healing power of some sort..I do not know what to think? Anybody give you any interpretations of your dream? Thank you. LaShannon

    Hi it’s fascinating reading about everyone’s dreams and the different interpretations.

    I’m wondering if the way I’ve interpreted my snake dream is accurate of if there is more to it.
    First of all I’ve always had a fear of snakes, but I’ve always believed in confronting your fears. My husband and I were on holidays a few years ago and the opportunity to confront my fear of snakes came up. There was a snake handler with a snake, giving people the chance to handle the snake. After a lot of hesitation I finally got the courage to handle the snake. I gained a heathy respect for them and learned that the aren’t cold and slimy but quit warm and soft.

    Back to my dream; I dreamt that I was walking across that back yard of a place I’d been on holidays, and poison snakes were all over the place. As I walked they just quietly hissed but made no attempt to bite. I felt calm and relaxed and didn’t disturb them.

    As I have a few family issues in my life at the moment, I took this to mean that sometimes you just need to step back and leave things alone and not interfere.

    First up really interesting article/s and comments. I hope you wont mind me adding my own and asking if anyone can share their insights with me? I have had a number of dramatic snake dreams recently that have really had a powerful impact on me when I have woken up, as if they are trying to tell me something but I just cannot understand it.

    The first, a few months ago was a large black ‘feathered’ cobra that reared suddenly above me out of nowhere. It’s scale (taller than me), and appearance (black feathers) really struck me – I was afraid in my dream and backed away slowly so it would not strike me and escaped. Yet the sheer power of this creature really stayed with me when I woke up – I found myself talking about it with others and trying to interpret its meaning.

    Secondly, a few days later I had another vivid dream, where I was shown an underground family tomb where I would be laid upon my death. It was not frightening, on the contrary I felt I was being honoured to be allowed to rest there. I was then shown a coffin that had been constructed specifically for me. It was just like an ancient Egyptian coffin, except instead of my face there was the face of a cobra! It was just like the one from the previous dream. Again the dream really impacted me upon waking.

    Third, today I dreamt that I was walking along a path with a group of friends and we were wary as there were the remains of animals left by a large snake/s. Suddenly a gigantic snake burst from the ground about 100m away and shot directly up into the air. It was colossal – as tall as a building and yet part of it was still hidden in the ground. The scale and the power of the snake and its dramatic bursting from the ground really struck me. The snake once again buried itself into the ground and moved at great speed although did not attack me. This one was more like a python or boa in appearance.

    I would be grateful for your thoughts, if any, on the interpretation of these images. Thanks and have a great day.

    What does it mean when your not dreaming of them but you hear hissing in the dark, and you feel them slither underneath your neck and sense them? I’ve been having problems when I wake up from my sleep hearing hissing and feeling slithering.

    Does this mean anything? My heart rate goes up and I get worried that their in bed with me… its intimidating and this has happened more than 3 times. What do I do? What does it mean?

    I had a serpent dream that has stayed with me for a long time. In my dream i was choking on something and I remember vomiting and throwing up a hard blue rock, then I felt the strangest sensation as I looked ahead of me and saw a rainbow coloured serpent coming towards me, I did not feel fear, yet I opened my mouth and the serpent entered my body, I could feel it slide down my throat and wrap itself around my spine, the sensations i felt when this happened I had never felt before. I stood up and after the initial pain left me, i walked over to a mirror and looked at myself, Wow…staring back at me in the mirror was my face yet I had snake skin and blue eyes like the snake that I had swallowed, I literally had transformed into the serpent? I do not know what this dream means, as in real waking life I am deathly scared of any snake?

    I saw this dream in the morning before waking up. There were nearly 4 to 5 snakes in my own house which were lying one beside the other on the mattress on the floor. I did not fear the snakes and the snakes also did not threaten to bite me. My mother then came. She did not use any power on the snakes but the snakes went off one by one. However the last snake was going and coming back again. It seemed that that particular snake didnot want to go away. Then after some time, that snake took human form and was talking to me. I don’t remember what it said or what it was trying to tell me. Then after some time, I woke up. Please can anyone interpret this dream and help me?

    As a nightly dreamer of 20 years, with many precognitive dreams fulfilled, I would like to share some of my thoughts.

    1. An egg represents something new about to be born, about to begin its life.
    2. A serpent is something cursed. This happened when a devil was cursed to become the serpent. Just as all men descend from Adam, and bear Adam’s curse of death, all serpents descend from the original, and bear it’s curse.
    3. To be consumed by another living being is to become part of it, and to be reduced to what comes out the other end.
    4. Your fear in seeing the snake should not be overlooked. The wisdom of our hearts and our head knowledge often conflict. (the war between flesh and spirit).

    For me a dream is interpreted on how one feels in the dream. My dream of the two huge snakes mating was one of happiness and joy at seeing them. They freed me from the tension of the other part of my dream. We can read lots and lots of interpretations, and depending on what culture you are reading it in it will be good or bad. In Japan a white snake is HIGHLY auspicious, and the gods will come down in a snake like that. It is also a symbol of money. But in the EuroChristian culture the snake is associated to the devil. But my theory on this is because it the easiest way to demean the symbols of an earlier religion. In pre-christian regions the snake is the snake is health, knowledge, the shedding of old skin, initiation …….

    I had a vivid snake dream early this morning where my family and I were on vacation, and randomly driving along a desolate shoreline after dark, to where we could go no further because the the road ended in a neighborhood of decrepit deserted houses. I followed my wife and family into one of these homes, and being heavier than them, almost fell through boards covering a cavity or cellar hole by the entrance. The house was musty smelling with scattered old tables and dusty furnishings.

    I went upstairs and into a bedroom, where a couple of children unfamiliar to me were sleeping; then I retreated back to a larger adjoining room, where suddenly this large snake appeared, and in rapid cadence of side winding motions, repeatedly advanced on me and retreated. The snake had the color and patterns of a Copperhead, though when I observed its head, it looked to be narrow, as opposed to the wide triangular shape that characterizes a poisonous snake.

    Then with a poof of sudden deflation, the snake became much smaller, though it continued its rapid advances and retreats for a time, before finally retreating for good, disappearing under a table. In the meantime I found myself back with my family in a decrepit common room. Finally, I noted a small, rather unassuming dog, fast asleep under a table, and the impression I had was this was the snake transformed. Needless to say, this was a standout dream full of symbolism which so far I am at a loss to decipher.

    What a divinely insightful website, I am very grateful for your time in putting this out there…
    I would like to share a snake dream and welcome any interpretation and insight as the timing of this dream is significant to my journey.
    I was with a male friend of mine, whom I haven’t seen or made contact with in years, we were playing easily with each other in a way children play , rolling in mud, laughing like children only we were adults, in what felt like a past life… we walked into the house and two snakes came out of the walls, made from hay, and chased me directly. One of them bit my very lower back, right on the centre of what I felt was my muladhara chakra. We called for a doctor, and after awhile I realised that I wasn’t poisoned. Then my daughter appeared, in the dream and walked inside the house, I told her not to go in because of the snakes, I then woke up. Upon waking, I was aware of a dull aching sensation in my overies? Any insight is welcome….. I work with yoga and meditation, and I am aware of the signifigance of the snake energy.

    I had a dream that I was in an amphitheatre, they were doing healings there and I had to break open an egg and swallow a baby snake before I was immersed in a pool, then a giant snake reared up from the water and spat me back out into the crowd. Then I had to be bathed in rose water in a separate pool.

    I have another dream where I’m walking through an amphitheatre and a giant serpent is hypnotising a group of women. I walk through and the serpent tries to get my attention, gets right up in my face and eventually we are able to communicate, eye to eye.

    I just woke from a dream where I found a tiny snake that appeared to have fallen down a chimney but when I picked it up, I saw it had a head like that of a bird, quite odd, and as I held it, it developed wool like that of a sheep. Weird. Any thoughts.
    I’d been thinking during the day of the Thunder Beings (have dreamed about them)

      did you find any interpretation regarding your dream? I had a similar dream recently and i no luck finding anything that helps. In my dream i was being chased around by a big snake with a head similar to that of a thunder-bird. Somehow i managed to kill it but then a much bigger snake appeared through a thunderous storm angry as hell. Been trying to find the connection between the snake and bird and all i seem to get is symbolism of life, death, rebirth and consciousness…any thoughts??

    I had a very vivid dream recently about two very large snakes, Boas I believe. Beautiful greens and browns colored their bodies. Their eyes were a muted yellow. And they were easily the length of a residential street. The rest of their bodies were proportionate in size to their heads. These were indeed very large creatures.

    In my dream I had driven to/arrived at my grandparent’s house. But before I could get into the house I apparently crossed the street to get a better look at something in a tree. As it turned out it was a giant, female snake. I instinctively knew it was female. (And in my dream I recalled having a dream about this female snake. Though, I had seemingly forgotten all about it. Though, I do not know if I actually had a dream about her not). I became apprehensive so I crouched behind some shrubs while watching the female snake. That was when I noticed the giant, male snake (again I knew instinctively it was male) in a tree near my grandparent’s house on the other side of the street.

    The male snake was staring at me. I was very intimidated because he was intentionally focusing on me. I then became frightened because of the intensity of the male snake’s focus on me. It was about this time that, even though I was still dreaming, I was telling my spouse about the dream. (A dream with in a dream). And to describe the snakes’ enormity I recalled that the male snake had placed his jaws directly over me and swallowed me whole, with room to spare. I found myself standing, unharmed in the snake. I drew a dagger. I cut a slit in the snake and walked out. The male snake was completely unharmed.

    I was then back hiding behind the shrubs. I knew I had to get into my grandparents’ house. So, I moved towards another tree and watched the female snake. She was interested, though not focused, on me. It was still the male who was so intense. I knew I needed to make a break for it and just run. As I was getting ready to go I noticed a woman was walking down the sidewalk and past the male snake. I was trying to warn her but she had no clue it was there and she did not seem to hear me. It was then that the male snake tensed. I knew he was ready to strike, at me. I took off across the street. I could feel I was being pursued. But I managed to make it to my grandparents’ front door. I remember thinking it was going to be locked. Fortunately it wasn’t and I was able to get inside.

    And even though I could sense the male snake pursuing me, when I looked back he was nowhere in sight. However, I knew he was “grinning” and both the male and the female snakes seemed pleased with the situation. My fear lessened immediately but I was confused as to their involvement/interest with me. Once inside my grandparents’ house, day had become night. I remember looking outside and wondering when it had gone dark.

    It was dark in the house as well though some lights were on. There were several chairs pushed to one side of a room. But you couldn’t sit in them since the seats were facing the wall. My grandmother was vacuuming. I started explaining about the snakes and she was terribly unimpressed. I asked why she didn’t wonder where I was since I had arrived an hour and a half prior but never came in the house. Again, she just didn’t seem concerned about it. It was as if she knew I had come to their house and why I was so delayed in getting in the house. And it felt as if I was missing something, something that had already ended or had not begun yet. And it was with this that I woke from the dream completely.

    I can still “see, hear and feel” the dream as if I were still in it. And I am also confused about the dream of the female snake I was sure I had, in the dream, but have no recollection of ever actually having. Needless to say, this dream was quite vivid and very real. And I am sure it holds an immense amount of information but I’m just not sure where to start and how deep it might go.

    I had a dream, i passed through high gates along a green path in the mountains. I was following a man in front of me, he slipped into a stream as i warned him about the changing terrain as i tried to adapft to the changing terrain, in the end walking a tight rope to stay out of danger. The man infront i knew had been swallowed by the serpent in the water and i knew i would be next. The blue serpent rose out of the water as i tried to step back to safety from him, i began calling for help as he approached me through the water, a spear now in his hand as i became more frightened, ready to throw it as i woke crying for help.I have had many significant serpent dreams. Wondering

    I literally ha a dream last night where a huge larger than my body snake was attempting to swallow me whole. I could feel and smell clearly in this dream. I felt a bit panicked and at first couldn’t move. I was standing whilst it attempted to swallow me but I somehow instinctually knew it wasn’t trying to kill me per say, which was strange. I could smell what seemed to resemble an intimate body fluid from a male, I don’t know why that came to mind but it did so no disrespect just being directly honest here. I also recall feeling the snake swallowing me half way and at this point I began to rub the inner lining as though I knew it would become irritated and release me which it did. I never felt and fangs or piercing of my body as I expected to possibly feel but I did feel a bit of pressure at the back of my head most profoundly. I don’t know what this means since I wasn’t swallowed completely. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    I woke up in a panic around 2 am convinced there were snakes in my room… I carefully got up and turned the light on to check … Obviously there was nothing.., I went back to sleep and started dreaming of a huge rainbow colored snake that that was adamantly chasing me until I stepped on his head and killed him. My heart was racing when I got up. I wish I could understand this dream better … I very seldom remember dreaming so it’s kind of a big deal !

    we went inside a building, the snake was staring at me through the window. He never came inside the building.
    Then, we went back to our own activities: having a good time, being happy, and invincible.

    I had a dream last night that I found a dead rattle snake coiled beneath a rabbit cage. This snake had died while trying to gain access to the rabbits. It was “frozen” onto the bottom of the cage and attached upside down in a coil. Its head and mouth were in a striking position and “frozen” as if it just looked at Medusa. I had a tool of some sort and was scraping and th snake where it met the rabbit cage. I was freeing the snake little by little. Just as I snake was about to disconnect entirely from the cage, an uncle of mine (who has passed on) entered and said something like, “I want to see what you’re going to do with that”. I woke up….

    Any thoughts on what this could mean? I’m think the significant portion of this may be the snake being upside down? I don’t know..Thanks for any help..

    I am so glad I have embarked on this website. I grew up in Sri Lanka where we used to see and snakes in the backyard and sometimes I remember even in the house and I have been afraid of them since.
    I have been having snake dreams starting last summer with the initial big white snake chasing me. I have been going through some kind of transformation from within stating last summer through which I have learned much about myself, my potentials and have become quite spiritual as a result. I get all types of snakes in my dream to little ones, cobra to big one like anaconda. This past spring break, I had a dream of a snake charmer sitting in front of me with a box in front of her and two kundalini snakes being wrapped around with their heads going into each other and another cobra snake jumping out and coming near me, I got scared and asked the charmer lady to take the snake back as I was afraid, but the snake was not harmful, it approached me and licked my thumb ans index fingers of my right hand. That was a very vivid dream that I woke up feeling the wetness in my hand.
    Last week I had a dream of this zombie that was trying to kill me turning into a cobra, not just any cobra, a cobra made up of words in a linear line coming running, towards me as I got really scared and my little brother took it and put it around wrapping it around the snake statue we had in the room, which we aparently worshiped in the dream to calm it down.
    Last night, I had a dream of me being in this forest area and this big long snake was sitting on a tree, it was not on just one tree, it had stretched itself through and around a lot of trees surrounding me in a way. It had its mouth wide open. I was scared it was going to eat me and the dream ended.
    Any thoughts on these dreams?

    I had a dream last night that threw me. I owned a new pet boa constrictor. It was HUGE. It was dangerous, and i had sense i didnt know much about it. It escaped and slithered away up my fire chimney. It freaked me out becuase i knew my friends dog was on the roof. I knew and imagined that snake was going to kill my friends medium sized dog by coiling around it. I didnt actually see this happen, but in my dream, i knew that snake was not after me. It was after that dog and i knew it was going to kill that dog. The dog was brown, black and had pointed ears. As the snake quickly slithered right passed me, and up the chimney, it loosened some things in the chimney, and a few other smaller snakes dropped from inside the chimney onto to the ground. Birds that were at the top of the chimney also now had space to fly down. A couple really basic, smaller birds (possibly robyns) hopped around pecking at food around the small snakes. One Robyn looked right at me. The dream suddenly switched from a hellashis nighmare to a very powerful, intense and kinda scary dream. That bird looked at me, and in slow motion, hopped off the ground and began flying toward me staring right into my face. I woke up and took a deep breath. I felt so powerless about that boa constrictor…as if i was responsible for it and responsible for the tragedy. But, i was too scared of the snake to stop it cuz i knew it would have killed me because i wasn’t trained enough to handle it. it was triple my size. Wow

    Hi. Could u please interpret my dream. Was in a room with some people. Don’t know what was going on. Felt their fear. Ther was a hole in the wall (wall was a bright green) with a small white cocoon half in and half out. I had a closer look and the was a snake in the wall. All I could see was its body moving. Was black and white and I could clearly see its scales. I mentioned that the was a snake in the wall. Everyone was terrified. I felt apprehensive but curious. My heart was racing. I prodded the snake through the hole (size of my fist) and it expanded and moved. When I looked again it had zigzag bands of turquoise, pink, black, white and lilac. The colours were beautiful. I wasn’t afraid. I had a smile on my face. Really weird because I don’t like snakes. That’s all I remember.

    I had a dream two nights ago that involved two snakes, huge, maybe two feet in diameter and about 6 feet tall (although part of their bodies were still on the ground) and they were struggling or fighting as I watched them, standing next to them. One was a corn snake (gentle) and the other was a rattlesnake. During the struggle, the rattlesnake opened its mouth wide and I knew it was about to strike the corn snake so I cried out to warn it, but the rattlesnake bit the corn snake, and then the corn snake was facing me and regurgitated a large amount of green matter. It hadn’t died yet, but the feeling was that it would die because it had been poisoned by the rattlesnake. That was it. Comments and interpretations welcome.

    Some years ago I had a series of crocodile dreams where the crocodiles went from huge and threatening to small creatures that eventually I ate. Crocodiles had a lot of personal significance at the time and I was hugely relieved that just staying in touch with that kind of energy resulted in it shifting entirely.

    I’m wondering if something similar (not the same) might be about to happen with snake dreams. I woke up a few nights ago terrified that I was about to be attacked by a cobra (and in waking life I’ve just spent time in Thailand, were cobras do exist). I was so relieved when I woke up and discovered it was “only a dream.” At the beginning of something, not the end. I think I’ll asking the cobra what s/he wants and see what happens.

    I have an experience to share about a dream my son had and a question. My son is just a few months shy of 5 yrs old and a very active and curious boy. He’s also very imaginative and creative storywise. Lately he’s been having more and more vivid dreams and one caught my attention. He woke up a couple nights ago with a very scary dream involving both dogs and snakes. This is what he described: At first he was being attacked by a mean dog and he decided he needed to fight it and open its mouth. He said when he did a huge snake came out of its mouth and he fought it but it ate him. Then he became the snake and tried to eat me. It scared him pretty badly, understandable as he is so young. My question is 2 part: has anyone else with children his age experienced this and what interpretation might be taken from his dream if any? On a side note I have had numerous dreamwarnings or dream visions all through my life. And although he was not a blood relation, my stepfather often experienced waking visions and dreamwarnings. And although my son never met his grandfather, he tells us things about Pawpaw that we’ve not shared with him.
