A million spiders

Last night I had a dream that has really got me stumped. Just want some input on what everyone thinks. Dream: I got off of a charter bus onto a concrete wall. Standing on the wall looking down I could tell that if I were to fall I would die. Next to the wall there appeared to be what looked like a very large rectangular ant hill. There was a small square window like shape cut in it. I leaned over to try and see inside. Upon doing this a spider jump at me and onto my leg. I jumped back and tried to shake it off. All of the sudden millions of spiders started coming out of the window. Big ones, small ones so many the ground around me turned black. I screamed as the spiders began crawling on me (Please keep in mind that I have no fear of spiders). I am being bitten over and over screaming for help. My daughter is there somewhere yelling at me to run. I'm trying to run but the pain and now the heavy numb feeling is almost to much. My husband is in the background saying I don't know what to or how to help. I can feel the pain and I'm so scared. Then I woke up. Well that's it, I would love to know what everyone thought.

search within your heart what situation it is that hurts you in your life and attempt immediately to change it – or run for it !

Well in my sleepiness the best I can offer is this excerpt from my personal favorite dictionary site.

On a negative note, spiders may indicate a feeling of being entangled or trapped in a sticky or clingy relationship. It represents some ensnaring and controlling force. You feel that someone or some situation is sucking the life right out of you.

To dream that you are bitten by a spider, represents a conflict with your mother or some dominant female figure in your life. The dream may be a metaphor for a devouring mother or the feminine power to possess and entrap. Perhaps you are feeling trapped by some relationship.

This dictionary is usually spot-on for me, might not be for anyone else though! I will try to do a better job tomorrow, scary stuff Lady

I chose to keep the parts about the legs being uneven because there's little online to go on for walking on a wall.

Generally dreams that don't make sense in their direct appearance are those that bother us the most, for some reason. Really, I don't worry about a dream unless it's reoccurring. You don't have problems with spiders now, but after the 10th time you've had the same dream?

The dream comes across as either relationship issues or your not dealing well with a personal change that your family represents. There might be some alienation involved:

For example: after early babyhood is passed, most little girls no longer cling to Mom as much as they used to, but develop their all-consuming bond with their father. It is easy for a mother to feel left out during this transition. This situation is not that hard to diffuse--you look up psychology on father-daughter relationships, and you set up girl's nights, or something similar, to spend 1 on 1 time with the kid.

For the husband it could be as simple as his grinding his teeth is getting to you, or as expansive as wondering if you're falling out of love. Most women, when they think about it, are keenly aware of where on the scale their husband lies.

If it's aspects of yourself, the aspects of you that you see in your daughter (innocence and parts of your similar personality), and the things you focus on in your husband (anything from annoying stuff, to the things y'all have in common) are at war with the way you are changing. Remember, everyone changes, so if you don't think you have, ask around. Few people stay the same from day to day, let alone for years at a time.

But, whatever the focus is, what is consistent throughout this dream is convoluted emotions. You've got a lot of detailed imagery that deals with soul-searching, rage and fear, frustrations with perceived limitations, being ready for something new, sudden changes, avoidance, a lack of standing up for yourself, being vulnerable, browbeating yourself, and letting your life live you. The sheer volume of this lends itself to something that you should have dealt with for some time. Most likely you've had similar dreams, as far as meaning is concerned (yeah, without the spiders).

Thanks everyone for your thoughts. I will take what everyone has said and do some soul searching. If anyone else has any other thoughts please share them.

That is not a dream.

That is a nightmare

I have had 2 dreams recently of being caught in a huge, sticky, MASSIVE spider web with spiders everwhere, so thick you could hardly walk through it.

Personally, I thought that mine was a warning about the financial mess the country is in.

Hello - I have a thirty year interest in dream study and am gifted. I will share some suggestions with you. You can take them or leave them.

I tuned in to the symbol of a wall and the spiders. You describe standing on a wall - that suggests balance because you felt you would die if you fell. Walls in dreams can have a meaning of building barriers. It could mean that you are on top of your personal barriers and balancing and when I put that together with the spiders I felt it might mean that you are actually a very open person.

The spiders as you describe them - lots and biting you - yet in waking life you are not afraid of spiders - suggests that you are open to attack. My favourite dream book (the one falling apart from so much use) suggests that being bitten by spiders you will be the victim of unfaithfulness, possibly from enemies in your business.

I felt strongly about those two images when I read your thread - hope the information will help you.

Much Peace...

Thank you for you input. I am still searching for the answer and will really look into what you have said. I'm usually very good at interpreting my own dreams and have also help many other with theirs. I don't know why but this dream has got me stumped.
