Interpreting Animal & Insect Dreams Using the Dreamtime Method of Dream Interpretation

Hi Dreamers,

Dreamers, another very common dream theme that I see frequently in dreams involve the dreamer dreaming about animals, insects, or non-human creatures. What does this mean since it is so common? I’ll now use the Dreamtime Method to interpret the following non-human creature dream.

Dear Dreamtime,
I had a dream where there were snakes and spiders that were trying to get me. Some were poisonous and others weren’t. I’m terrified of both of these! Can you help me and tell me what this dream means?

Dear Dreamer,
With this dream, your DreamSelf Within is communicating that within your current thinking and thoughts creating your now . . . snakes and spiders are trying to get you.

Using the Dreamtime Method, the three-dimensional definition and understanding of a snake is a creature (reptile, serpent) that has no legs yet has the ability to “move” with much power in life. The three-dimensional definition of a spider is a creature (an insect) that has many legs and the ability within to create a “web.”

Thinking as your DreamSelf does, the dream symbols of multiple snakes and spiders is communicating from your DreamSelf that within you right now, you have powerful energies moving (within you and your life) as symbolized by the snakes. Along with these powerful energies (the snakes), you also possess an “inner ability” to create and manifest with these powers (as in how spiders can create and spin a “web”). The snakes and spiders trying to “get you” in your dream are your own powerful creative energies within (the snakes and spiders) trying to get your “attention” so that you will manifest and make them happen in your daily life.

In the dream, you said that some of the snakes and spiders were poisonous and others were not. The non-poisonous snakes and spiders as dream symbols are communicating from your DreamSelf your innate ability to move with power and be creative in your everyday life. Some of the snakes and spiders being poisonous is communicating to you that there is some issue (going on within) where you feel that if you use your “power,” it could possibly lead to situations that may turn out to be poisonous or toxic to you, your life, and/or others. You said that in waking reality, you are terrified of both snakes and spiders. Since waking reality mirrors the dream state, this is communicating that there are issues going on within yourself where you fear your own power (of creation) as though it may be too much power and/or that you may misuse it.

To get a better understanding of what this important dream is communicating, I would look at what it is that you have been thinking about “creating” or doing with your life right now. Think of how you would feel if you acted on that. I would also consider what you (and/or others) have made you believe would happen that may be negative if you moved forward with your creative energy.

Your dreams not only tell you what’s going on in your life, but as your own “multi dimensional energy” attract into you the next day(s) after dreaming your dream, similar three-dimensional (physical energy) to provide the solution for whatever your dream is addressing. It is in this way that your dreams create your everyday, three-dimensional Self and life.

In understanding the above, I would look for opportunities and the circumstances (energy) to come into your life in your next day(s) after dreaming this dream to act on what it is you want to create in your life right now. As you take this creative action, try to be aware of the outcome seeing if it helps or hinders you and your life. Then you can make a conscious decision to continue with it or not.

Please e-mail me back when you get this and let me know if there is anything that you did not understand of how I used the Dreamtime Method to interpret your dream. Thank you again for submitting your dream for interpretation and good dreaming!

Here’s the Dreamer’s response to the above Animal/Insect Dream interpretation:

Dear Terri,
I was astounded at your very accurate interpretation! I could not for the life of me understand what this dream meant with the snakes and spiders that I so dislike. Your interpretation was spot on in that I have always been afraid to do much of anything new. I come from a very strict religious upbringing where new information and thinking is not embraced. I always think about making changes in my life, but worry that they won’t work out or what others may think or that they might disapprove. Your interpretation has given me much to think about. Many thanks.
