Do you ever have a dream that acts like a warning symbol in life? I dream of a snake and within 2 weeks bad news befalls someone in my family. It happens every time throughout the years. When I have the snake dream. Each time a different kind of snake I pray for every one I know. Does any one else have this happen but maybe with different animal or symbol? I am serious.

  • While I don't have "animal" warning dreams, I have had dreams about things that will happen. Could the snake maybe be an animal guide of yours? It could "come" to you in these dreams because that is it's purpose. I believe that we all have several different animal guides and each one has a different purpose.

  • I have never experienced a dream like you described, but I do think dreams can have real meaning for us. Maybe because you are in tune to your dreams you are able to easily receive these messages.

  • In writing about Snake Symbolism, Gillian Holloway, Ph.D. wrote, "People who are dying or who have lost a loved one often dream of snakes, at or near the time of death. For whatever reason, these dreams seem involved with the psychic awareness of the transition from this life to the next...."

  • I find it very interesting that it happens to you but I've never personally experienced something like that.

  • The significance of the snake in dreams can be a warning of sorts representing fear but can also be a sexual symbol. It can be a sign of letting go of the old and embracing the new. For myself animals in dreams are a good thing.

  • Wow. I read something completely different about snakes in my dream book. O_o

    I do sometimes have premonition-like dreams, but not often & not lately.

  • Sometimes dreams are dreams. Sometimes they are warnings or clarifications. Don't over focus on them. You can keep a journal of your dreams and maybe that will give you insight.
