Snakes In The House (Snakes Dream)
I had a dream of snakes in my mothers house. My middle brother and I was in the kitchen and there were rattle snakes every where. In the dream. There was a head (just a head ) on the floor. I think my brother picked it up and the head bit him.

I told my Mom about the dream as to warn her to check her house. She later told me she had ask one of the older ladies of the church what it meant. The lady told her it meant marriage. I fail to see how rattle snake and marriage go together.

SERPENT - Satan and evil spirits.

In some cultures snakes are highly regarded and symbolize the ability to transcend into higher levels of consciousness or into areas of knowledge that exist outside perceived time and space. In the pre-Christian days, snakes were considered symbols of fertility, healing, and nurturing (the healing serpent representing a god). Post Adam and Eve, snakes are often considered symbols of temptation and evil, anger, and envy. Snakes emerging out of the ground may represent your unconscious or repressed materials coming to your conscious mind. Freud thought that the snake was a phallic symbol. It is amazing how many people have snake dreams! Most snake dreams seem to be disturbing and they leave the dreamer feeling anxious and afraid. There are no simple interpretations to the snake dreams. Each dreamer must consider their own situation and all of the details of the dream. Sometimes snakes may be phallic symbols and other times they represent negativity in our lives that hampers our progress and constantly threatens us. In the long run the snake may be a positive symbol; it may represent difficulties that lead us to the center of personality and result in feelings of completeness.

Please check your feelings and emotions in the dream and every dream have fear in, it's not a good dream.

Before I had everynight snake dreams and I started to hate enakes. I got my freedom of snakes dreams praying a lot, now I don't hate them, I kill them in the dream so I do have completed peace, thanks God

Ray, I don't know what church your mom goes to, but I don't see how that means marriage either. But then again i don't know anything about you, or your family. It's usually easiest to interpret a dream through conversation. But I've been praying about your dream (to Jesus) and I think I am getting something. But included I will kind of give yo a list of some of the other possibilities of what these symbols can mean. Because you didn't give any emotions, I am totally stepping out in faith here, and may be off. Please take whatever is helpful to you, and feel free to correct, or give me more information if you think it would help. But here we go...

ok So for starters, an old house, often represents the past (duh) and spiritual inheritance. Specifically your mother's in this case. And by spiritual inheritance I mean religion, ways, temperament, and established traditions. And kitchen, often represents the heart. aka... your passion, motives, plans, and ambitions. Your mom's kitchen being her heart (or less specifically, the heart issues you are inheriting from her spiritually.)

Now the snake thing, doesn't mean your mom has an evil heart. So I'm not going there. BUT, the rattle on a rattle snake is a warning... a loud warning. In the dream book i have,(also christian... I do a lot of dream interpretation, but try to keep it biblical, and not new age.. just for the record) it says the rattle of a rattle snake can mean words, threats, warning, and alarm.

In this case i feel like it is an warning, and less specifically of a bad part of your mother's heart (although that is implied but no body is perfect.. we all have those spots in us that need fixed) but something in the heart and purposes of her church as a whole.

Lastly the brother. Brother can either represent himself, or you, or a friend who your brother reminds you of. But it sounds to me like it represents you. as a caution, but i could be wrong, it might be your brother. But picking up the head of the snake, clearly the bite was because the head is dangerous. The head normally represents authority, or power, like boss or pastor or something.

(One thing I like about dreams is depending on the context, a symbol can usually have opposite meanings. So I could be completly off. lastly most dreams, unless you are used to getting dreams for other people, or you have a clear sense of it being for other people, are for you. about you.

So i would say that this dream is a warning about a dangerous teaching or thought or behavior or theology in your mother's church, or in the beliefs that you have that you received from your mother. Perhaps God is speaking to you about Him, and His heart, and this dream is showing you that something that you have been concerned about in your mother's church is a concern to Him as well. Or perhaps it has more to do with the authority thing. and the "picking up the head" meaning that you aren't to embrace that particular authority.

With that said I am not anti church at all, quite the opposite. I believe this dream is God warning you about something, not "the universe" or "some other God" warning you from your mother's faith as a whole. but feel free to write back to me, more information might help. And I would love to know if that resonates with you or if it is totally out there like the marriage thing. thanks, -Aidan
