What does it mean to dream about snakes running away from you?

Dreaming of snakes escaping shows something you cannot wholly understand

This dream reveals that you are in front of a complicated circumstance -or a confusing event- that you are not able to comprehend just yet. Perhaps the snake escaping represents a brief and uncomfortable incident in real life that you haven’t paid enough attention to.

Fleeing snakes in your dream indicates that you are seeing only the details or hints of a current situation or problem that is very difficult for you to grasp. Perhaps, the dream is revealing a problem, an issue that is quite hard to detect or uncover.

Dreaming of snakes running away means that something bad is NOT happening to you

If by the end of the dream the snake escapes, it displays that something – apparently – dangerous or unpleasant did not materialize in real life. It is possible that this dream might be expressing your personal impression of a situation that initially caused you worries, but it turned out to be less serious over time.

Perhaps you just got lucky with an event in real life that could have hurt you badly.

Dreaming of a snake fleeing means you are denying something in you

It is possible that you do not want to accept or acknowledge something you have made (a mistake, a misunderstanding ), or perhaps a situation in life that you find quiete troublesome or unsettling.

If you have a dream of snakes escaping, that might be happening because you are denying yourself certain feelings or impulses. In fact, some authors believe that a snake fleeing in a dream suggests that the dreamer is suppressing, evading or ignoring her own instincts, appetites or innate impulses. Isn’t she listening to the urgent call of her intuition?

Dreaming of snake escaping displays your unchecked inner nature

The fleeing snake can be regarded as the dreaming expression of certain aspects of yourself: the internal traits that you cannot easily address, the elements of your personality or character that you would love to bring under control.

Perhaps this dream is exposing your internal emotional elements that push you to react with fear or distrust in the face of new situations or scenarios that you are not familiar with; those inner elements in you that are not easy to deal with.

Dreaming of a snake escaping means you are trying to get rid of negative things in yourself

Snakes running away from you could be considered as an image that symbolizes the harmful or disturbing thoughts, attitudes, impulses, or feelings that you are finally rejecting or discarding. Perhaps, you have begun to overcome personal fears and vices, or you have just left toxic social environments or distanced yourself from mean-spirited individuals.

Remember, your dreaming mind -the generator or “movie director” of your dreams- has the ability to create visual representations (the snake, for example) for the things from your inner world that, obviously, do not have a material or tangible form in real world.
