  3. So I dreamed where I was in my old house and I saw two snakes in front of my neighbors door. One was Golden cobra but not that scary. The other one was pitch black, darker than black (idk how to explain but too dark) snake laying on the ground – I couldn’t even see its face. The black snake vomited some liquid(venom? some sort of gel) – My neighbor stepped on the vomit by mistake and it affected her. She didn’t die but it was too strong, it was like the poison was spreading in her body. The golden snake was just there kind of ‘watching’. I don’t remember what happened after this – I just woke up.

    This could be completely random or some meaning to behind it. I am searching on the net and trying to figure out what could be the meaning – I hope my neighbor who I haven’t seen for 13-15 years and who currently lives on the other side of the planet is fine.
