Grey Snake Dream Meaning

This dream may reveal that the dreamer is experiencing uncertainty, indecision, even confusion.

Dreaming of grey vipers, cobras or snakes of might disclose a sense of isolation, apathy, even loss of interest in something or someone. Indeed, this dream is suggesting that you are feeling emotionally distant from what is happening to you and the world around you; perhaps you are lacking focus on certain personal matters; it seems that you are not satisfied with yourself.

The dream may also be suggesting that you want to keep your lack of commitment in something. It seems as though you do want to engage in certain business, or you prefer to stay away from a relationship or a particular situation in wake life; perhaps you may be trying to escape or avoid certain -social or work- environments.

I am sharing this dream:

A woman dreamt of seeing lots of grey snakes in his bedroom. In waking life she felt that her life was absolutely empty and filled with frustration.
