Example 14 – Spiders

Here is fascinating dream about spiders, and its exploration:

I found your email on the internet for dream interpretation. If this is not correct, I am sorry to be bothering you.

I have had the same dream as I fall asleep for several years. I have it nearly every night just once, sometimes, rarely, twice as I fall asleep.

I dream that I find a dried piece of skin or scab somewhere on my body, usually my foot or my hand, tho it has varied over the years. I begin to pick at the skin/scab and scratch it until it comes off. When it comes off it unleashes a flood of seed spiders that engulf me. Another variation is I find some odd black hairs growing out of my body and when I examine them more closely they are regular sized spiders crawling out of me and they begin to engulf me.

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Again, if this is not correct, I am very sorry for the disruption of your time. Best C

Here is a interpretation:

Dear C -   What I see with your dream of spiders is that there is a possibility of an underlying fear, so that when you begin to sink just below waking, just under the surface of your mind, this feelings of being overwhelmed arises. If it were a big thing that emerged it would be easier to deal with. But thousands of little things are difficult to handle because you kill some but there are so many left to get at you. A big thing you could hit with a cricket bat or kill it in some way, but the small things are more difficult. They are a sort of ultimate enemy. You need to find an image that enables you to deal with those feelings. An image that might be helpful is that of jumping into a very hot shower, one you can just about cope with. The water is pouring down and is going to burn up the little bugs. Another image might be that you walk quickly through flames that you are big enough to pass through with perhaps only your hairs being burnt, but the little spiders are going to get burnt up.

Were you at some time frightened of sickness? A sickness that could engulf you and you would be powerless against? If not that, then perhaps an image of something, or an idea of something that has stayed with you just under the surface of your mind. Tony


Dear Tony: Thank you….THANK YOU for getting back to me with the dream information. I am fairly well educated about things but could not come up with anything for myself. I think I may have been too close to it.

You mentioned several things that seem to “hit the nail on the head” and I will explore those. The most important thing you mentioned was that of being “powerless against” illness. I do have a life long disease that is manageable but could be fatal. I think this is where I am going to start as that is what seemed to really set off bells.

I really do thank you for this. It has not been interfered with my sleep and the dream only occurs as I fall asleep….once asleep, I am fine.

I thank you so much and I am sure that my partner thanks you as well……

Thank you…thank you….thank you…. With gratitude, C


Here is another example from a mature woman:

This dream started on my wedding night, over twelve years ago. I awoke with a cry and jumped out of bed, convinced there was a spider in the bed. The dream has repeated itself countless times over the years, much to my husband’s impatience and amusement. Now, however, the dream is alarmingly realistic. I put on the bedside lamp, wake my husband, and tell him I am not dreaming and I have just watched a spider emerge from my shower room and walk up the side of the bed onto the quilt. Naturally there is never a spider to be seen. Sometimes the spiders are green or pink, and often my husband wakes to find me out of bed hunting for them. My own theory is that spiders are something to do with my mother. She is a strong character, and my only real act of defiance was in marrying young to a man who she disliked. If both families had not fought so hard, the relationship would probably have petered out.

Hello Tony
Would you explain my dream please. Find a huge almost blackish grey spider ( body like my palm, with big legs) while moving old big dusted glass jug on a shelf of my shed or so. Then my college took it and laughing (On a funny/positive/ jockey way- luck if knows its funny) put the spider on the top of my head and let it run. It runs to the bottom of my head toward my neck but she have grabbed it and put in back on the top of my head again!, spider was performing the same run. She was laughing of loud and keep doing the same. Meanwhile even I was terrifying I hadn’t run away.

I had a dream so vivid I can’t shake it. I had an open wound on my right arm and there were tiny parasites coming out of it and one small black spider. I just kept staring at it watching it but doing nothing to stop them. Can you help with this interpretation please.
Thank you.
Peace, love and light.
