    ... Odd things were happening in the dream. Having to defend (moral) positions. Physical accidents. Threatening people/situations. Every time something happened I saw a weird looking snake that seemed to get a little bigger whenever I was afraid, or didn't act/hesitated out of fear. After the last "scene" I was walking through a narrow lush valley. There was grass everywhere and small(ish) trees that grow up out of the steep sides of the valley walls reaching upward. There was occasional rock outcroppings jutting out from the side of the valley walls. After a bit of walking it opened up slightly and there was a man sitting upon a rock outcropping. He seemed to have been waiting patently for my arrival.
    He asked "What question are you thinking about?" with a serene smile and slight tilt of his head.
    "The snake", I started talking as if we were old friends, "what is it and why is it a little bigger each time I see it?"
    He smiled in a compassionate way, "That snake is 'fear' it follows you from your birth. You feed the snake every time you act or fail to act out of fear."
    "What is its purpose?" I asked.
    "It will follow you as long as you feed it. If it follows you for all your days it will be waiting for you when you die."
    "Waiting for me?"
    "Yes. It will wait for you and if you have not learned to let go of your fears in this live it will not let you pass unless you can conquer the sum of all your fears." He said with gentle concern.
    Leaning forward I asked "What happens if you can not defeat it then?"
    "You come back and see if you can starve that particular snake in another life.", he said as if it were obvious.
    "What happens if I can defeat the sum of all fears there, or after I learn to let go of fear and the snake goes away?" I asked.
    He smiled and pointed I turned to look and saw down the valley there was a path going through some woods. I looked back towards him and he was gone. Upon the rock outcropping where he was sitting was a small tree and hanging from the branch that was in the place where his pointing hand was was a necklace/string of seeds.
    I then woke up.

    I thought is was an interesting dream and I just thought I would share. :)

    Hello WayFarer
    Since this dream, have you seen fears in a different way? Have they diminished or increased, for example?

    :)

    Hello Onkarah, I hope you have been doing well. :)
    As far as fears/worries are concerned I would say I think they have diminished. I believe I see them (the objects/issues of fear/concern) as milestones more than obstacles. There is actually a bit of a speech I have to give to a group of people that will not want to hear it later this week and I am looking forward to seeing how I do now as opposed to worrying over possible responses.
    It was an interesting dream. Thank you for your question.

    Thank you ZenZero for that information as to some of the possible interpretations of snakes in dreams. I thought it interesting that there were so many different circumstances/scenarios listed. Interesting. I wish my words were more descriptive of the dream. The scenery in the dream had an epic movie type quality to it. I tend to enjoy my dreams, for the most part, and move on but some seem worth telling. This seemed like it might be one. Thank you for your post.
