Dreams of Snakes in the House

what is the meaning of dreaming snakes in my house

It reveals threats to your personal space.
It exhibits your emotional conflicts.
There might be disagreements at home.

Dreaming of a snake in your home means there are worries in your inner mind.

The house shown in your dream is considered as the authentic expression of how things are going on inside your inner world. The snake, on the other hand, is regarded as the manifestation of a disturbing aspect of yourself.

Thus, a dream with snakes in your home reveals a current distressing state of your inner world as a result of a threatening invasion of your personal space; maybe you believe that something or someone is altering your feelings or thoughts.

Dreaming of a snake in your home uncovers disruption in your daily routine

Another interpretation affirms that this dream is displaying problems with your routine or with the way you conduct your daily tasks.

Indeed, there may be an irritating alteration in the normal rhythm of your relationships. Are you feeling uncomfortable as a result of an abrupt and sudden change in your daily life, an alteration to your lifestyle you cannot control?

Dreaming of snakes in the house where I lived in the past

Some experts in dream interpretations consider the house you lived in when you were a child as an imagen symbolizing your basic beliefs, fears, attitudes. Well, think about your childhood home as the place where you grew up and where some elements of your character and personality were formed. It is also during this early age in life when some of your great personal fears, issues and limitations started.

With this in mind, a dream of snakes at that house shows your unresolved personal insecurities (or family conflicts) that may have begun when you lived there.

Think about a possible very old issue still affecting you in the present; perhaps the reptile is just embodying the fears, feelings, or worries you used to have back then, and that have been activated or triggered by an ongoing event. Perhaps you’ve picked up an old way of thinking as a reaction to something new or unfamiliar you are currently facing.

Recurring dreams of snakes (or other harmful animals) in the house where you lived years ago might be uncovering an urgent need to solve serious problems from your past; troubles which you thought had been forgotten or overcome.

You can consider this dream as an opportunity to look at your basic reactions over a personal situation worrying you. Let me ask you: Do you think you are reacting to an ongoing problem by repeating or maintaining unsuitable habits or convictions that you accepted when living in the house shown in the dream?

Dreaming of snakes in someone else’s house

This dreams means that you are in the middle of a new and challenging situation, and you have no idea what is going to happen next. Indeed, it is possible that you are facing an uncertain and hostile environment with which you are not familiar.

Perhaps, you are going through an uneasy period in life (for example: getting a new job, moving to a new city, living with an illness) and you do not know how to react to the new events happening around you; perhaps you still cannot find the way to re-establish your comfort zone.
