Boyfriend cheating…

Dreams metaphor, dream symbolism, boyfriend cheatingDream:  I don’t know why I keep having dreams that my boyfriend is lying, cheating, and eventually leaving me. I have faith in our relationship. But, these dreams are tearing me apart. Please help me.

DreamsMaster:  If you truly trust your boyfriend and have faith in your relationship with him, then these dreams are likely a reflection of your own insecurity, or fear of not being in control. It’s as if you’re subconsciously pushing him out the door, perhaps thinking you’re not worthy of being treated otherwise, or perhaps operating on the “quit before you get fired” instinct.

If you’ve had boyfriends in the past who lied and cheated on you, then it’s possible you’re guarding yourself by preparing for the worst. Sadly, this approach may lead to the very outcome you fear – driving him away.

What’s most important here is to get solid footing of your own. Dreams of losing a boyfriend and feeling torn apart by it are a sign of you being overly dependent on a boyfriend for your own security and well being. The goal here is not to make those dreams go away; on the contrary, the goal is to allow the events to unfold and to not fall apart when they do.

The dream will stop tearing you apart once you recognize you can be whole with or without a man. In fact, once you gain this inner strength, you’ll likely stop having the dreams altogether… unless, your inner detective is actually picking up on some real (not imagined) clues. If this is the case, the dreams will persist until you “wake up” and stop denying the facts that are right in front of you – and take action to reclaim your personal power.

What does a snake mean…

snake dreams, dream symbol, snake in the grass, what does a snake meanDream:  What does it mean when you dream about snakes?

DreamsMaster:  A snake often represents one not to be trusted, as depicted by the expression “a snake in the grass” when describing someone slithering about ready to strike. Is there someone in your life you feel threatened by in this way?

A snake may also be a symbol of transformation, as in the shedding of one’s skin.

What a snake means in any given dream depends upon the dreamer’s personal association to snakes, combined with the events and feelings in the dream and in the dreamer’s waking world.

For example, let’s say a person likes snakes and even has one as a pet. A snake in that person’s dream may mean something quite different from a snake in another person’s dream, who is never around snakes and very much fears them.



If you’d like help interpreting a specific dream about snakes, here are some ideas on how to get started (read more about this on the Dream Interpretation pages):

1) Write out the dream in detail, then look for the general dream theme (for example, someone is doing something to someone else).

2) In regards to the snake itself, write down some adjectives that come to mind when you think of a snake.

3) Try this: role-play being the snake and interview yourself! Ask questions such as, “Who are you?” and “What is your purpose here?” Some very interesting aha! moments can come out of role-playing your symbols!


A change is taking place, some painful growth, as in a snake during the shedding of its skin. It is difficult to adjust because I do not know who is adjusting; I am no longer that old person and not yet the new.

Bit by a snake…

Bit by a snakeDream:  I had a dream that I was at a friend’s house. She left this snake in a large see through cylinder and it managed to get out. I ran to the back door. It was coming towards me. I was afraid. But something told me not to be afraid. I peeked around the corner and it bit me in the forearm.

DreamsMaster:  A number of interesting possibilities with this dream. Some things to consider…

Is the friend in the dream someone you know and trust in your waking world? A snake in a dream often represents something or someone not to be trusted.

In this dream, you were aware of the danger (see-through cylinder), you started to run away from it, you chose not to be afraid, and you then got bit.

Looking at this sequence of events, do you recognize a common thread in your waking life currently? In other words, is there an obvious danger or untrustworthy individual in your environment that you’re choosing to ignore, but may be putting yourself at risk by doing so?

It’s a positive sign that you were able to face the fear and take a peek at the unknown. Keep your eyes open.

Snakes and being killed…

snakes and being killedDream: I had a dream of snakes and being killed.

DreamsMaster:  Both “snakes” and “being killed” are common themes. To have them together in the same dream suggests there’s something going on in your waking world that you need to be cautious about, something or someone not to be trusted. It could also represent a part of yourself that’s being self-destructive, so take a look at your own attitude and behavior as well as the attitude and behavior of those around you.
