Last night, while I was half conscious and half asleep, I dreamt I saw a small, totally jet-black snake about 35cm long, which seemd to be suspended in the air above my bed near my head. It was on my right so I saw it from one side with one little golden-yellow eye looking at me.
I did not see it at first, though I felt this very subconscious awareness of something being there that I had not noticed, but that it wanted to be seen, and then suddely I saw it.
It was laying in the air as straight as a rod and very still, but at the very moment I noticed it, it became very fluid and it moved as quick as lightening inside the bedcovers past my head.
I was very frightened that it might bite me as it briefly passed across my abdomen and into the right side of the bed somewhere. I was thinking I should jump out of the bed once it was clear of me, but I had sleep paralysis and could not, and then my conscious mind said don\'t bother because it was not really there in my bed.
I have never dreamt about snakes before, but I know they are common dream symbols. I wonder what this dream signifies?
