This is a dream I had about two weeks ago.

I dreamed I was in a huge tree somewhere at very high altitude.

In this huge tree with large branches was the body of a snake.

A very thick snake in my dream I think have at least 20 inches thick.

This snake was dead and had no head and what is more strange is that where supposed to be tail but also had a head that was cut.

A strange two-headed snake. Head where it was normal to be a head where it should be tail.

Somehow I defeated this snake.

I do not know what the significance this dream could have.

Any idea?

It's a dream, therefore not important.
But if it's an interesting/exciting piece of fiction, or felt exciting in some way, then at least it was entertaining.

I thought a lot about this dream of mine and meaning.

He is probably important in a particular context but trying to figure out who could be that context.

No, because it's a dream. Therefore fiction.

Dreams are glimpses into the personal unconscious, reflecting your real life experiences and parsing them into symbols which can be interpreted by psychologists. Dreams are never unimportant.

Dreams can also offer insight into the collective unconscious, where the universal symbols we all experience are imagined. The two-headed snake is one of those archetypes.

Oh I understand that so the dream may have no significance as there is no relation between facts and fiction therefore dreams and their interpretation may not express future facts in our lives.

Thanks for the explanation.

I know this sounds funny but I am not trying to be funny here I swear. I have always heard that dreaming about snakes means you are worried about sexual inadequacy.

Because a snake is probably longer than the person's penis? Is that the connection?
Wouldn't a person be worried about his/her sexual inadequacy if he/she was worried about his/her sexual inadequacy, regardless of the dreams?

Could you please point to some scientific facts for this statement of yours?



which can be interpreted by psychologists.

Dreams can be interpreted by anyone. Interpreted.



Dreams are never unimportant.

Yes, they are. They are dreams.

- Did you live that, or did you dream it?
- I dreamt it.
- Oh, nevermind.



Dreams can also offer insight into the collective unconscious,

What is the collective unconscious?



where the universal symbols we all experience are imagined. The two-headed snake is one of those archetypes.

Universal symbols? Who created these?

That is so true.Is something that unite people and I am sure it is collective consciousness of the collective unconscious.

Therefore likely to work collectively elsewhere and in a different way than we imagine.

For the good.

Thank you masqua for everything.

I really have NO idea why. It was Freud who said that, not me. Here:

link
For Freud, founder of psychoanalysis, the snake is primarily a phallic symbol representing the penis and sexual drive. A Freudian interpretation of a snake dream emphasizes your relationship to sexuality and male figures in your life.

According to Freud, the snake is symbol for the penis. The meaning of a snake in a dream is associated with sexuality, and as an extension, with male figures in your life, or how you experience your own manhood, relationship with men or your male energy if you are a woman.

If you dream about snakes and would ask Freud or a Freudian analyst for help to interpret your dream, you could be invited to consider the snake as a symbol for repressed sexual desire or inner conflict about how you express or experience your sexuality.

I am worried about other things than that believe me...things that are of capital importance and maybe there is a chance for the good if that snake was defeated in my dream.

I feel like a child who has reached one year.

Well, Freud was a freak any way. Everything was about sex with him. That aside, what were you doing when you went to sleep that day? I usually dream about what was going on before I went to sleep or if I fall to sleep with the TV on I have dreams about what is on at the time. Alot of times I go to sleep watching TV and it is on TBS. They have Married With Children episodes on all night and I can't tell you how many dreams I have had where I am in an episode of that. Last night, I played Skyrim before I went to bed and had a dream where I was killing monsters with a sword. It could be anything or nothing at all.

You do realize that most of what Freud said is no longer regarded as, well, anything? Mainly due to the fact that he just made things up? Science does not backup his claims.

Yes I do. The OP was asking about what the meaning of his dream was. There is no science there. Just opinion. Every single person that has ever said they KNOW what a dream means is just making crap up or guessing.

Freud is so 19th century. If you want the real skinny on dream psychology, one only needs to research C G Jung, the true 20th century master of all things mindful. Jung pretty much destroyed Freud's credibility even though he was nice about doing it.



Jung will lead us into the 21st. Go Jung, go.
