A dream world is a beautiful place that can be both exciting and educational.
It is like a movie – a horror, thriller or an excellent, bizarre romantic comedy, but they are also the world from which you can learn a lot about yourself, from a perspective you did not have until now.
Dreams can have, as motives, numerous real and imaginary symbols, oftentimes mixed into an unrealistic world.
Animals, not just the real ones, but also the ones that belong to some old ancient stories and legends.
For example, caterpillars.
It is not uncommon to dream as we think.
If you had, in general, a dream of just one caterpillar, where the accent was on it, not the environment and some other aspects of a dream, it is recommended to be careful because this dream may carry a negative message. Someone wants to do you some harm.
If there have been more caterpillars, also in a neutral “environment,” you can expect that more people will try to harm you, and it is not even a little pleasant.
This dream does not imply that such events will certainly occur, but that there is a chance, so your body and mind are preparing you for such events.
It is recommended for all those who had this dream to resist in real life to harm those who share such negative energy around them and fight for themselves because no one else will!
The caterpillar in a dream speaks of the person who saw it in a dream, a very unpleasant event. Their cause will be the betrayal that people from the dreamer’s closest circle will be capable of.
Even dreams in which a caterpillar can foretell to the dreamer will become a victim of horrible and daring deceptions.
Do not be scared; the dream about caterpillars is not so bad – it is not always a bad indication. The caterpillar can turn into a butterfly and, therefore, can predict favorable changes in the dreamer’s destiny.
