A Fearful Dream of Snakes

Marie writes “I need to ask I had a dream where I was surrounded by cobra snakes and I would try to kill them but they would come back to life scared the sh*t out of me.”

What It Means

Marie, many times in the spirit world, the snake and or reptiles are associated with predatory nature. They also represent the victimization of someone, harmful or hurtful acts towards others. But when you are dreaming or sensing the snake around you or inside of you. This is a message to you saying you need to let go of negative energy or feelings.  You are not dealing with an issue which causes you to do further harm to yourself or others.  You’re not necessarily a victim. You could be the predator.  The fact that they immediately come back also represents that you are not doing enough about it and you would rather not deal with the issue at hand.  Let me further elaborate, I’ve had people say, I keep seeing a snake or part of snake slither by.  When they really press themselves, there’s an issue they are not dealing with, usually something traumatic.  And they readily blame others for what is bothering them.   

Since this was presented to you in a dream state, your spirit and mind are telling you to do something about the snakes and what is going on in your life.  In not dealing with this, you are possibly seeking comfort in some sort of vice or addiction that could be destructive to yourself and others.  The snake is basically keeping your spiritual self from seeking the help it needs. 

What You Could Do

First of all, relax. Meditate. Just chill out. No television. No music. Just time to yourself.  Then ground.  Just say “Higher self, ground me to the center of the earth.” 

Examine yourself and literally say “I’m going to relive this dream and have the answer why I’m facing these snakes”. “Once I get my answer, I will also get the answer about what to do next.”  Be ready to get an answer you may not like. Chances are that it’s the first and correct one. You could this during meditation or even before going to bed.  You should never get an answer which encourages you to harm yourself or others physically or emotionally. If you do, stop.  This is your problem to fix. You may see the traumatic event flash before your eyes when dreaming again or possibly after saying those words.  Be assured, it will probably not hurt as bad seeing it this time around. 

Next you have to face the snake. It’s easier than you think. Don’t forget you are in control here. If you see any reptile like creatures such as the snake, freeze them.  Literally look at them and make them freeze in your dream. Continually freeze them and tell them to leave. Continue to do so until they disappear. Sometimes you will get a nasty taste in your mouth or hear crying and or screaming.  They will leave. Once they are gone, if you get cold and feel alone, ground yourself again. Then take comfort and assurance in what you have done. 

There’s a side note to this process. What if you see a deceased loved one in this process? That’s for my next entry.
