Has Anything Rattled You Up?

We must tread very carefully when snakes make their appearance in our dreams. The rattlesnake has chosen to come to you over the 3000 species on this planet.

The rattlesnake is metaphorically designed in a way that is alerting you to pay close attention to  a possible camouflaged threat in your life. But do not get me wrong, the rattlesnake is known to have healing properties in it venom making you transform as a person.

If the rattlesnake has become a warning in your dream we are going to help you find this threat and remove it. Though, if it has emerged to help guide you towards a transformation than we will show you what to expect.

What does the rattlesnake mean in a dream?

Rattlesnakes in our dreams have the ability to heal you because it’s poisonous venom has to kill you in order to be reborn again. It’s ability to shed its skin is the reason why the ancient Egyptians used this metaphor for a personal transformation; in our dreams it carries the same property.

Since the rattlesnake only becomes an issue when you are too close to comfort, it tend to suggest this is a person rather than your unconscious fears. I mean why else would you unconscious specifically use its unusual traits to display something. Why didnt it just use any old snake? Catch my drift!

Unlike other snakes in dreams the rattlesnake is always on the attack. This reinforces the fact it could be a person who might do you harm in your life. Like most people who are bitten by rattlesnakes in the wild, they never heard the warning signs before the attack.

If you are one of the lucky ones you may have killed the rattlesnake in your dream.

Understanding the hidden threat in your life

As we mentioned before the unconscious purposely sent in the rattlesnake and not an anaconda or a king cobra for a reason. If you notice the rattlesnake traits and characteristics are totally different than any other snake. This minor attention to detail might end up saving your life.

The rattlesnake sometimes appears to say “hey watch out” there is a disastrous person in your life that will be out to harm you. Ideally, what you should do is start by paying attention to these synchronistic clues that just keep popping up in your life randomly. This is why paying attention to the other clues in your dream will help you find out who this could be,

Unlike other snakes the rattlesnake is really docile until it gets provoked. We know that this person will mirror the rattlesnakes solitary nature that only be on the attack if you cross its path as a self defence mechanism.

Are you someone who blocks your intuition?

This is a key factor with dream symbols becuase it tells you that you are the one that is attracting yourself to become its prey. This happens when you are not trusting your intuition or its rattle warning you to back off. If you failed to listen to this sound than its just inevitable you will be attacked.

But this should be a lesson to you because the rattlesnake in your dream is really a teacher despite if you are attacked or not — trusting your intuition in your life can save your life or that of others once properly tuned in. This might be why many people have recurring dreams about rattlesnakes because of their inability to stay out of harms way no matter how many warnings they receive.

Rattlesnake dreams: Reasons for attack

Did you know the majority of rattlesnake dreams revolve around the dreamer being attacked or bitten? While this might be because you unknowingly provoked the venomous nature to come out of someone – or – you crossed paths with someone who will target you.

One helpful clue that might emerge in your dream is the location and people you are with when you saw the rattlesnake. Believe me this is not random setting but often a mirror setting of where this attack or warning might occur in your life.

You will also gauge by the snakes temperament and how you deal with it will determine the outcome. For example, if you went towards the path of the snake, or it just randomly attacked you tells you how consciously aware you might be of this threat in your life.

Maybe its time you need to be bitten?

The rattlesnake in your dream is known to take the shape of someone who is waiting for you to cross its path. There is a reason why the snake has been used in many cultures to depicted cunning and dangerous person capable of causing harm to unsuspecting individuals. A

Another important clue why you didnt see this attack coming. Remember they are know to be great at camouflaging itself similar to the predator in the movie. Rattlesnakes don’t only use camouflage to hide from menacing animals, but also to stay low-key when focusing on acquiring prey animals themselves.

If you dream of a rattlesnake attacking someone it represents sensing danger that will be targeted on somebody. However, this rattlesnake might be the shadow side of the dreamer pointing at their own unconscious aggression attacking someone.

Tips how to identify and defend yourself from the rattlesnake

Sometimes dreams are warnings and if this is the case we want you to help you get out of harm’s way before its too late. Here are some tips that will help you defend yourself from the rattlesnake attack in your dream.

  1. The first stop is to trust your instincts: If you feel uneasy or uncomfortable around someone, pay attention to those feelings. Your instincts are an essential tool for detecting potential danger.
  2. Next you want to always stay alert with your surroundings: Always be aware of what’s happening around you. Avoid distractions like using your phone excessively or wearing headphones in situations where you need to be vigilant. But use the locations in your dream to increase a heightened sense of awareness.
  3. Keep a safe distance from people you might not know too well: If you feel uneasy around someone, maintain a comfortable distance from them. Trust your gut and create space between you and the individual.
  4. Don’t reveal personal information to anyone: Be cautious about sharing personal details with people you don’t know well, especially in vulnerable situations. Right now there are a lot of scammers looking for you to be their prey.
  5. Try and avoid isolated areas: Be cautious about going to secluded or poorly lit areas alone, especially when interacting with unfamiliar individuals. The rattlesnake in your dream might be the ones who wait for you to come to them.
  6. Trust your intuition and always go with your first gut response. Your intuition will never let you down and it is always a trusted source. Remember rattlesnakes are pit vipers, so they have heat-sensing organs located in pits near the eyes. These pits allow them “see” the heat signature of prey. Even in complete darkness, the snake will be able to accurately strike at prey because its meal is warmer than the surrounding environment.
