Many dream interpretation guides agree that being chased in a dream is a sign that you are anxious and running away from something or someone. It usually happens when you’re under a stressful psychological condition. The dream also has a tendency to repeat itself. The same thing is true with a snake chase dream. If you don’t want to repeatedly dream of snakes chasing you, it is best to get to the root of your subconscious.
Chased by snakes dream
A snake dream can mean many things, and being chased by these slithering creatures can mean several things.
Dealing with a difficult situation
What do you feel when you think of being chased by a snake? In all likelihood you would feel frightened and anxious, trying very hard not to get caught. In the same sense, uncomfortable or embarrassing situations could be something you are avoiding or running away from for the reason that it is hard to face. But you would have to face it at one point or another, which brings about fear and anxiety. The snake represents that embarrassing situation you want to get away from. Whether it catches up with you or not, the fact remains that there’s a challenging situation in your waking life that needs to be addressed.
If you manage to escape the snake in your dream, it foretells that you have a good chance of solving the problem. If you do resolve the issue, it will result in good connection and big profit.
Brings awareness to your consciousness
Is there something going on in your life that’s causing so much stress and tension? Dreaming of snakes chasing you means that your subconscious is warning or making you aware of a situation that is threatening or makes you feel unsafe. The dream tells you to directly confront the issues affecting you or the feelings it activates.
Fear of self-confrontation
Seeing a snake in your dream and being chased by it can mean that there is a personal drive or feeling that you don’t want to confront, because they are deemed undesirable or unacceptable. The snake represents your own fear, anger or aggressiveness that is causing you to turn against yourself. This makes you feel vulnerable, making it hard to fully acknowledge what these undesirable character traits are. Instead of dealing with these feelings directly, you end up projecting them on a substitute image or element, such as the snake. In this case, the snake is merely telling you that you have unresolved feelings, which you are conveniently pushing to your sub-consciousness.
If you repeatedly have snakes chasing you in your dream, you might want to deal with the problem once and for all. This is because it is one way for your brain to tell you that you’re under such an anxious situation that can manifest through physical conditions. For instance, you might have a dull headache or a stomach ache due to mental exhaustion. Your brain and body are tightly linked, after all.
