    I had a Dream of 2 snakes 1 big and thick ” Red and black” the other one was very little and you could not tell its color. I remember thinking that the little snake did not belong with the bigger one I had a pole and was going to try and kill the snake and When I Went to smash it The Ceiling dropped as if it was like a Drop type Block Ceiling and The snakes both ”spiraled” up into the house or wherever it was I was at. I can remember feeling like Oh’ No the little one Followed but with in seconds I thought well it was teach it how to survive and they will find a place to stay warm. I have a lot going on in my personal life I could almost pinpoint all this to but I am worried it being a snake. I never remember my Dreams and this one stood out very much ! Could anyone help me with the meaning behind this. I have been dealing with thoughts of a unfaithful boyfriend and I have a child involved in this web of deceit in my Personal life. My Best friend of 20 years is the one my Bf is seeing or That I think is seeing but I have no proof at all.. My instincts as a mother have been telling me this guy Evil. I am worried that he is going to lead my son in the wrong path of life. I am not perfect myself But I do Live in love and have a firm Foundation In God. I have been praying and I have been seeking answers and I guess I do not like the answers I am getting and I keep trying to change it.. I keep questioning myself and My God.. I am questioning my sanity at this point. Maybe because I want to be wrong I want a family so bad. 🙁 Please help with my dream. I had hopes that maybe now the deceit was over and that a new Leaf has turned and that things are going to change. I have lots of faith but can only change myself !!

    Good morning! I am Melody. I dreamt days ago of small but colorful snakes in the bed with a baby beside me. Instead of being frightened I pulled those snakes on their tails and threw them away from. In my dream these snakes were so harmless and that I am the one getting them on the sides even on the bed where I am lying with the baby smiling near beside me. In reality, I am too and so, so afraid of snakes though I was born in the year of the snakes. But honestly speaking, when I woke up, I started to feel nervous of such dream. What is the meaning of this dream. Please help me! Thank you very much! And God bless us all! 🙏🙏🙏
