Snakebites and Dreams

Rate this Entry
I woke in an underground room, in bed with a girl, and in the middle of a house party. What lights were on did nothing to lighten up the room color-wise -- everything was gray and black. I moved out of bed and walked through the room filled with my friends; in the corner I found a pool table. The surface was green felt and no one was playing. Walking around the table I saw the cue-ball had been scratched and rested in the small retrieval pocket, but when moving closer I saw another rattlesnake hiding in the pocket instead. I couldn't help myself and reached out for the ball, and the snake bit me. It was at this moment that I went into a strange state of consciousness. I can hear my heart, can feel it beating but everything surrounding me is black. I was a bit spooked that this might be the end, but I desired to hold on to my heartbeat and keep on living.

When I came back to dream consciousness I was met with two or three people next to me, they may have been gaurdians & guides. I think this because I never did get a good look at them, but I feel they were responsible for the experience.

    I generally consider snakes as positive Alchemical omens. Getting bitten by one in a dream may be related to an initiation of sorts. Time will tell...

    A few years back, I found a very real snake in my lab, coiling around my various flasks and setups on the main working surface.

    Apparently, my lab-stuff was somehow attractive to the snake
