What does it mean to dream about snakes in your house?
If you wake up and have dreamed about a snake you might be able to overwhelm this at first. It may be that you are not at all concerned with the meaning of your dreams, but a snake in your dream is often experienced as very intimidating. And not without reason! A snake in your dream can have many meanings depending on the context of your dream.
If you are not normally concerned with the meaning of your dreams, it is not surprising that you have started looking it up, because in addition to intimidating feelings, many who dream about a snake also experience emotions such as anger, fear and mild panic. This makes it important to look at what the snake in your dream tried to make clear to you. This is not a floating thing as some might think, it is a message from your subconscious mind.
Perhaps there are problems that you have ignored in your life lately, or have not paid enough attention to. The entire state of mind as you have experienced during the dream is also very important. So before we look at the further meaning, first try to remember how the dream exactly went. You must ask yourself the following questions:
- How did the snake appear in my dream, how did I get there?
- What did I feel during the dream when I saw the snake, what was the atmosphere?
- Was the snake biting me?
- What should I first think of when I woke up?
- How did the rest of my dream go?
General meaning of a snake in your dream
Regardless of the further interpretation of the snake in your dream, there are a number of generally applicable characteristics due to the appearance of a snake in your dream. First of all, a snake symbolizes something in your life that you – perhaps unconsciously – occupy. This is probably something you know about but does not pay enough attention to. Because you do not listen enough to yourself, this is also anchored in your subconscious mind.
This is reflected in the dream and explains the presence of the snake in your dream. However, the issues that concern you are often not of a positive nature. Secondly, a characteristic of a snake in your dream is that the problems you are dealing with also bring about change. For example, this can be things like a move that you are nervous about.
Thirdly, there is a characteristic that makes a snake very special in your dream: it comes from the deepest grounds of your soul. It is an indication of something that really keeps you busy. Finally, a snake in your dream is almost always an indication of something that you experience as a danger in your life. This again goes together with a change that keeps you busy and comes from the depths of your soul.
Atmosphere of the dream where a snake appears
Earlier I asked you to check the overall atmosphere of the dream with a snake. It is important that you feel this atmosphere well and also dare to speak, because it can totally change the meaning of the snake in your dream. A friendly and pleasant atmosphere can often be traced back to a fear that takes place in your life that you have been fighting hard lately. The friendly atmosphere in which the snake appears means that you are continuing to develop positively and are overcoming your fears.
On the other hand, when you are confronted with the snake in a negative atmosphere, there are often fears in the game that you do not dare to fight against enough. This settles into your subconscious because you may not listen enough to your feelings or do not fully process them.
Interaction with the snake
Another point of attention is what you do with the snake when it appeared in your dream. It may be that you are bitten by a snake, which in turn contributed to the possibly frightening atmosphere in your dream. If you are bitten by the snake then this is an indication that you should pay more attention to issues that you avoid or do not dare to tackle.
Maybe there are unprocessed trauma or you are worried about certain things. You must remember that this dream comes from your own subconscious mind. Your body says to you: do something about it! Not for someone else, but for your own well-being.
If you fight with the snake in your dream, this means that you are confronted with the fears and uncertainties of your life, but that you ignore your own emotions too much. You have to dare to express to yourself how you feel about certain things, only in this way can you solve it!
Finally, it may also be that you talk to the snake or vice versa. This is an indication of a development in your life that you are currently undergoing or about to undergo. It symbolizes an awareness of certain things in your life that you are very concerned about. This can be both things in your immediate environment such as with your family and friends, but it can also be much broader in nature such as knowledge about the world. One thing is certain: it will keep you busy. The question is whether this is enough or not.
After the dream
It is good that through your dream about a snake you started looking for information about the deeper meaning that can be attributed to this appearance. The snake symbolizes something big in your life that deserves the necessary attention. The meanings that I have attributed to the appearance of a snake in your dream are primarily general in nature, it is up to you to attribute the deeper meaning to the appearance. It is a message from your deepest subconscious mind, at least you should not ignore this!
