I dreamed that upon opening my eyes from sleeping in my bed, I saw a nest of ugly spider hatchlings hovering in a web-nest over the lower corner of my bed, and thought, “no wonder I’ve been getting bug bites.” When I sat up in bed, the spiders had morphed into huge adult Orange Garden Spiders (those kind are ugly and have always scared me), and them & their now huge & convoluted web system now encompassed over my bed. I ran around the side of my bed which was then the only way to avoid the web, and felt something brushing against my face. I pulled spider web strands off my face, looked back, and saw that the side of my bed had been taken over by a Banded Garden Spider (also an ugly kind) who had webbed up the side of my bed in no time. When I got out of my bedroom into the kitchen, there was a tan shiny scorpion running around. I didn’t believe it at first, because they are not natural in my home state, and I friend I told didn’t believe me at first either, but I looked again and confirmed that it was indeed a scorpion. I tried to explain what I saw to the friend, imitating its pincers with my hands, which was slightly comical. I kept trying to pound it with my fist to kill it, but it would always hop into a dark crevice, so I kept missing it. And it wasn’t just an innocent creature minding it’s own business. It was lunging at me and at my dog. I never did kill it.
Thank you for Your answers to my questions. Your answers do not coincide with a typical symbolic dream so I can only assume its spiritual and/ or psychological.
Sleep walking is believed by researchers to only occur during Delta sleep, which is our deepest level of consciousness. Most believe that dreams do not occur at this level; however, what does occur is healing and restoration. At this level of sleep, it is believed that sleep walking is an expression of emotional conflicts which have been repressed during the day or as far back as childhood. At night when we sleep, by walking off the adrenalin or the emotional turmoil within, we are actually healing our mind by releasing the emotion/s.
Bugs/Spiders often represent small annoyances or larger ones depending on the size of the bug and how many. The little things we worry about oftentimes distract us from our real purpose and upset our serenity and our relationship with God. Your own thoughts, feelings or problems bugging you robs you of your own personal power by allowing these people, places or things to get under your skin. The dream is showing you how you spin a big web out of a small thing, allowing your emotions to control rather then taking some positive action to end or control the irritations that bug you the most. (I.e. You may have to become more assertive). Spinning such large webs (your mental activity)uses up a lot of energy without actually getting anywhere.
A Scorpion is symbolic of the “enemy” who seeks to kill, steal and destroy your joy. All he can ever do is whisper negativity in your head hoping to distract you from hearing the word of God. If you fear him and his ugly followers (garden spider), you remain powerless, but if you claim the word of God and cast down those thoughts, then you have the power to take back control. You can’t kill the enemy, but you can have power over him. (You may disbelieve my words but pray the prayers I send you – attached- and claim your Christian rights over the enemy and see for yourself the results).
Luke 10:19 NIV • “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you”
The Kitchen is symbolic for FOOD FOR THOUGHT. The enemy is playing with such thoughts in your head. Lots of mixing, digesting and/or (disposing) of thoughts that are negative and bringing you down.
The living Room is symbolic of area of daily mental activity, thoughts and attitudes, your basic belief system of yourself, who and what you are. By seeing this woman from work in your dream may be an unconscious wish to be someone else, which indicates a poor self image.
The mattress slipping tells me your Christian foundation or belief in your higher power is slipping and some adjustments need to be made.
***Prayer of protection over self and your home:***
“In the name of Jesus Christ, by the power of His cross and blood, I/we bind the spirits, powers and forces of the earth, the underground, the air, the water, the fire, the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.
I/We rebuke any curses, hexes, or spells sent against me or my family or my pets. You shall have no power over us any longer. No weapon formed against us shall prosper and I send any curses, spells or negative energy directly to Jesus for Him to deal with as He will. Lord, I ask You to bless my enemies by sending Your Holy Spirit to lead them to repentance.
I/We bind all interplay, interaction and communication of evil spirits. I/We claim protection of the shed blood of Jesus Christ over us all and over my home. Thank you God for your living word, thank you this is your will to protect me from the snares of the enemy. Thank you, it is done in the name of Jesus Christ.
By the Blessed Power of God and The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth I rebuke the enemies of darkness, infernal invaders, all wicked legions, assemblies and sects, All whom live here or shall enter upon this property I claim the Blood of the Lamb, the shed Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command that you leave this home at once! In the Name of Jesus Christ Our Saviour, Amen.
I hope this interpretation has helped you and if you have any more questions regarding this dream, I will be happy to answer to the best of my ability. Thank you for allowing me to serve.
