Dream from the mailbag:
My co worker had a dream about me being eaten by a white alligator!!! A couple of months ago I dreamed of alligator!!! Freaky right? Well in my dream there was a pond with the alligator in it! My dog jumped in then my niece and my sister! I had too keep jumping in the pond to save everyone! The alligator eventually caught me and killed me!
Wow, that is quite dramatic and I would guess that this dream was sent as a warning or the expression of an unconscious fear. Hope you don’t live in Florida! Kidding :). The warning is probably not an omen of death, more like a sign of looming transformation. Interestingly enough, according to wiki, white alligators are extremely rare and hard to find in the wild. This small clue might help you to uncover what this represents in your life.
…there was a pond with the alligator in it!
The alligator is a dangerous and powerful animal. My wild guess is that this represents a man, possibly someone you work with. Might there be a white, solitary sorta man with two shiny rows of pearly teeth hanging around your pond? The idea of your pond to me represents your personal space, intimate space. Water, is the symbol of life force energy and can also symbolize sexual energy. Ponds are often tucked away, peaceful and still, but something dangerous has found its way in. But if it isn’t a person, then it is some sort of wild and dangerous activity you have been doing alone.
My dog jumped in then my niece and my sister!
There are warnings being put in your path. Maybe your dog doesn’t like this person, perhaps they all got up in your business about it. Or perhaps they all fell for the charm of the guy (if there’s a guy).
I had too keep jumping in the pond to save everyone!
Do you feel like you have to keep explaining yourself to everyone from the truth about the situation. Are you hiding something perhaps? You are protecting them from something you know is not safe.
The alligator eventually caught me and killed me!
I am most interested to know how you felt when you woke up. What feelings did you have about this because I would have to guess that this warning from your subconscious is clearly expressing that the path that you are on will lead to a big life change. Hearing of your friends dream might have inspired the symbolism expressed in your dream, if you had been thinking about it or wondering what it might mean. And that wondering could have triggered the dream.
All in all, I would take the dream as a warning of a threat in your house. A person in your life, or a dangerous habit that has the potential to cause big upheaval in your personal life if you don’t do something about it. Or it also may be expressing a fear about letting someone or something into your personal space and the fear that doing so would mean giving up, transforming or changing an aspect of your current self.
Hope this helps!
