and the messages they bring you


You are in the process of transformation. Old emotional wounds are now healed allowing you to move forward without guilt or fear.

If Snake has slithered into your Life

Transmutation is the key word here. The shedding of old skin and emotions and transforming them into something bigger and better. If Snake winds itself into your life know that change is in the wind and that you are at the center of it all as the catalyst. Make sure that your intentions are clear and that you have clear a clear sense of the direction that you need to strike out in. Snake is letting you know that these changes are safe and that there is no need to fear them.

You are also being reminded to stay connected to the self through observation of both the tiny vibrations in the earth, and the warmth and smells of the air and sky. When we learn to connect with our surroundings we can continue on the path of growth, and discard the trappings of the past.

If Snake is your Animal Spirit Totem…

People with snake as their totem are often finding that they are going through constant changes in their lives that they usually move through smoothly. They have a natural ability to balance energy and often Snake totem people are gifted healers.

You are very charming in social situations, and very good at holding people’s attention, there is something mysterious about about your gaze, your intensity, and your ability to sense what other’s are thinking or feeling. Tied in with this charm is a confidence and self assurance that many people find alluring. Snake people can slither in and out of conversation with ease and grace, and are often flexible and open minded.

If Snake comes into your Dreams…

To see a snake or be bitten by one in your dream could mean that your hidden fears and worries are coming back to bite you. It could also be alerting you to something in your life that you are not aware of or that has not yet surfaced. Alternatively, the snake may be seen as phallic and thus symbolize temptation, dangerous and forbidden Sexuality. In particular, to see a snake on your bed suggests that you are feeling sexually overpowered or sexually threatened. You may be inexperienced, nervous or just unable to keep up. If you are afraid of the snake, then it signifies your fears of sex, intimacy or Commitment. The snake in your dream may also be referring to a person around you who is callous, ruthless, and can’t be trusted. As a positive symbol, snakes represent healing, transformation, knowledge and Wisdom. It is indicative of self-renewal and positive Change.

To see only the skin of a snake in your dream could mean that you are being protected from illnesses.

Occasionally a snake without any eyes or without a head could signify that you are ignoring the danger in a situation. Alternatively, it could also mean that you are going to be blindsided by something.

  • okay.. so i was at the beach, one i always visit in my dreams. Same setting, over cast and steep sand slopes where the shore breaks. I was with my mom, her brother, her friend, and friends son. We walked upon a huge snake half rotted in a hole, but the snake was clearly visible from afar so the hole was not deep. My moms friends son walked up to in and was in the hole with it. I walked up to it and i kept thinking i was going to bring it to life. I was quietly staring at it, i turned and walked away and knew i could bring it to life. As i was walking away i heard screams from my mom and her friend, ‘why is the snakes skin coming back! Its moving! My son!!” i turned back for a second and saw the snake bite my moms friends son. I turned back around and we all began to leave the snake. I wanted to tell them it was me but then i would be blamed for killing him. Pls leave your thoughts, i would love to here them.

  • My mom has been petrified of snakes as long as I can remember, but I never felt that they were particularly scary. Then one day in Brazil I was at my family’s country house. I was standing on top of a short flight of stairs that lead to the house’s entrance, and I was leaning on the doorway. For whatever reason I had the urge to look down, and when I did there was a snake 2 inches from my left foot. It was roughly three feet long, and green (it was a jararacussu). Anyways I leapt down all the stairs in one movement and started screaming “snake”. Sad to say that we killed the snake, but the people I was with and I were very scared. Since that day I have had lots of dreams with snakes, they bite me every time. And one time on a hallucinogen I had a very beautiful vision with a snake, but then it still bit me, and right when it bit me my friend hit my foot, and I actually thought I had died for a second. Anyways, I don’t know if any of this means anything and I just started to look into whether it is my spirit animal an hour ago because I saw one on T.V and had to turn my head away. Also, my mom did something called regression where a doctor puts you into a dream like state and you are supposed to go back and learn about your past lives. Apparently she was told that in one life she was killed by a snake and in another her dad was killed by a snake…. Any help would be appreciated.

  • About 2 nights ago I had a dream where I was in bed and a huge python-like black snake slowly slithered over my shoulder and onto the left side of my body. It rested on me, calmly, peacefully. At first I didn’t know what was going on and I was nervous about the heavy slithering sensation, but as it moved onto the whole left side of my body I felt that it simply wanted to rest with me, or on me and there was nothing to fear whatsoever. The weight of the snake was visceral and I was happily stuck to my bed, not wanting to disturb it’s peaceful rest stop, and almost feeling like one with the snake. Any interpretations of what this could symbolize?

  • There was a gathering. My friend, I and a few others were facing the group. Two snakes writhed at full speed into the hall. They were separate but parallel, approaching where we sat, searching the room with their mouths snapping. I was afraid but remained calm as they made their way to me. The snakes stopped when they ‘found’ me, and with one on my right and one on my left side they sniffed from my shoulders to head (as when doggies are saying hello with your hand to their nose) and then the snakes turned away, disappearing. No biting. I cannot figure this dream out … am zero percent a snake person. If there is/are any interpretation(s) for this dream, please let me know. I do not recall any colors in this dream. Thank you.

  • Hello I’m not sure if this is where I post dreams but I’ve been having very interesting dreams recently. It first started about 2 weeks ago when I had a dream where I was in a desert town being chased by snakes which in my eyes didn’t seem hostile or try to bite me,I ran and jumped on the shoulders of a person I might have know and said I’m sorry I can’t be down there and proceeded to jump off his shoulders to the top of the house. After that all the snakes started to go into the house that I was on too of and the dream ended. The 2nd dream I just had I was running up a metal stairs and a green snake once again none hostile was following me quickly up and down the stairs,as I ran down I look to my left to see a slightly bigger snake that was all white and had think blue lines horizontally across the snake and I woke up. Any ideas of what these dreams could mean? I’ve been thinking all morning.

    • Hello Jon, it seems that you are afraid of change, and these snakes that are in your dream are trying to tell you its ok to jump and to no fear of the changes that are occuring in your life. it can be anything, self-change, job, relationship, whatever your situation maybe. the all white snake can be someone you feel very close to in your regular life, they are watching you with intent and concern but also being very protective. hope this helps.

  • Last April I had post operative complications and almost died twice. Was put in a paralyzed drug induced coma and didn’t wake up for two weeks. During that time I had a terrible “dream” that I was being held captive by indians and would be sacrificed. During my cativity, a snake like nurse with one eye was always trying to help me, keep me safe. Snake is also one of my totem animals. I managed to come back to life….taken me 8 months to learn how to breath, swallow, eat, walk…etc but I did it! What significance do you think the “snake nurse” was? Thanks

    • Lois, Snakes have been known to have healing properties to them. Perhaps the nurse was symbolizing how snakes are used to help
      People from venom with their antivenin and how you were in a coma. (Some snake venom can do that). As for the one eye, it could be translated to psychic powers or a God-like force watching over you. The significance of the snake nurse might have been a divine being trying to help heal your condition. P.S. Snake are known for shedding their skin and “coming back to life.” So when you were revived, you were basically shedding your own skin. Hope you are feeling better and know that you have Divine Beings and Gods of Nature protecting you! Namaste! :mrgreen:

  • I have recently found out my spirit animal is the snake and I also feel like this animal is very misunderstood as well. Many people fear snakes as death-bringers or evil for some ludicrous reason. My family life isn’t going so smoothly right now as a couple of my family members are criticizing me for being different and put me down constantly just because of my spiritual/practical/emotional views of this planet. They constantly show favoritism to my older siblings because they claim “My siblings are men of God.” I am Pagan and they are Christian so you can see the blatant conflict arising. I don’t want to give any more details, but I feel the Gods gave me the snake as my SA to prove beauty comes in all forms and being different is a blessing. Snakes to me are viewed as evil and disgusting because people can’t see what nature creates truly elegant.
    Snakes are beautiful animals who give their spirits to the people who choose to be different and beautiful in their own way.

    • Hello Melanie: People naturally fear what is different, whether it is your beliefs, your way of life, or even the way you express yourself. Know that you are important just the way you are and that you are a gift to us all simply by being yourself. When others have a problem with that – understand that it is their problem – and not yours. You don’t need to change in order to fit their life stories.

      • Thanks, Silken. I honestly believe Spirit Animals choose the person based on that mortal’s personality. Ex: a Powerful and highly sociable person might be a Wolf, or a person born with advanced wisdom and is practical might be an Owl.
        I have to ask…Are you a snake as well? To me, snakes are the reptilian equivalent of owls. But, that’s just me. Maybe you are a Raven like your username and just looking at different profiles of other Spirit Animals. Anyway, be blessed and use nature as your omniscient guide. Thanks again. :)

  • Hi
    I had a weird dream. I saw a green snake speaking to me.and after some time of a friendly talk, a baby snake which is green in color was passing by and the snake which spoke to me killed it . It was so scary for me and weired that the dream is still over me

  • I had a weird dream last night. It was about a snake like creature. I am not sure if it was a snake per se, because in the dream it was supposed to change into another creature, sort of like this giant sea turtle with huge spikes on its back. But, I digress. So, in this dream, we find this creature in its snake form. We put it in a fish tank of water because we have the understanding that it is a sea creature and we are going to be near the ocean soon. As we are about to leave, I go to grab the snake out of the tank and it raises up, bears fangs, and then bites me. Then it begins to burrow into my arm. At one point I see the tail emerging from my bicep and the head emerging from my forearm. I don’t know if that is important, but it struck me as odd. So, the snake finally disappears within my body. And, everybody in the dream, I am surrounded by people I don’t know, is freaking out, because they don’t want the creature to reach its final form within me becaus I would surely split apart at the seams. So this person I don’t know takes me to a hospital, where I am sent to this dark room with stone walls, but no bed. And, a man, I guess a doctor, comes in with forceps. He removes the snake, and I get up and leave. That was the end of the dream. What could this mean?

    • I see this dream as a blessing and view the snake as one of your power animals. Reaching into you in such a manner as to get your attention. It would only be natural if you currently do not follow this path for those around you to not understand. Once you have made the nessacary transofmations and shed the life that was not meant for you, you may awaken to not know those you have surrounded yourself with and a change in friends will be iminant. When you discover the cave inside you ( ironically where several species of snakes dwell) it is there you will find your ultimate power.

  • I dream about a lot of rattlesnakes behind me as I was walking down the road headed over a friends house, and the snakes followed me in the house they were black and grey what does this mean :!:
