Very realistic big spiders

Iv’e been having a reoccurring dream for about two years now. The dream is very realistic in that – it seems like it’s incredibly real. It usually takes place within an hour after I fall asleep.

It involves spiders about the size of my fist descending from the ceiling from a thread and it’s coming down directly to my face. I’m paralized completely and can’t do anything – I can hardly even breath. This scares me so badly, to the point where lash out of bed, sometimes waking up in screams of horror.

When I wake up I can’t always realize that it was actually just a dream – it’s that realistic. Most of the time I simply can’t fall a sleep again, I’m simply terrified I will have this dream again (more often than not, that actually happens again).

I don’t even know if I should classify it under “Nightmare”, “Lucid Dream” or “Recurring Dream”.

What does it mean? Is there a way I can make it stop? Please please please help me.

Interpretation #3 by Anonymous

This particular dream sounds like a mixture of all three. When it comes to recurring dreams, their main purpose is to tell you something that you have to know. If you don’t get the message the first time then the dream just keeps repeating until you do.

Nightmares are basically your mind forcing you to acknowledge something that may either frighten you or make you uncomfortable at any other time. In dreams a spider doesn’t just represent a bug. A spider and its web (or thread) could represent decisions that you have to make. It could also represent lies and or misunderstandings that you feel trapped in.

Obviously, there is something that’s been going on during these past two years that you need to take care of. Or else there have been multiple things over the previous 24 months that have called for the dream to reappear over and over again.

Think back to when you first started having this dream and from now on each time it occurs you should take note of what you were feeling, what you were thinking, and what was going on in your life at the time.

reading your dream reminded me of the recurring dream I had from ages 4-10! It was the exact same. i couldnt describe it any better. Just huge spiders descending upon me via threads and I was paralyazed. I would tag it as an anxiety dream.

If its of any help to know I literally have had the same exact thing happen to me for at least 4 years now. I just woke up from a spider dream just like yours freaking out again and decided to google it.

Interpretation #8

Spiders represent problems in your life.
Do the the spiders get more when you have a new problem, and get less when your problems are solved?

The numbers of spiders will decrease when you solve whatever things are bothering you.

Interpretation #10 by Anonymous

I have had nearly the exact same dream off and on now for over 23 years. They always fall from the ceiling on a thread over my face and I cannot move. I wake up screaming thinking this really happened to me. I am shocked to hear someone else has had a dream so similar to the ones I have been having all these years. The only difference is that the spider always looks different. There have even been twin spiders falling from a thread, too. I am thinking these dreams are occurring when I am stuck in situations or with people I have to deal with wether I want to or not. Working in the eduction field, I often have to deal with some very derogative personalities who work over me or on grants where you may get shamed for recording too many hours even though you honestly worked that. Go figure!

I also get recurring spider dreams. I don’t know why, but I often wake up from those in real night terrors. And I actually don’t suffer from any Arachnophobia in my waking life (quite the contrary, actually). Good to know this is a common dream (i hope?).

Interpretation #15 by Anonymous

have you done any research on hypnagogic hallucinations? i have these kinds of “waking dreams” all the time, especially when i’m very stressed. my hallucinations are not always about spiders, but always wake me up in a state of panic and fear. i have found that the more research i do and find out this is a relatively “normal” reaction the brain has to stress, the more quickly i can recover from the dream and snap out of the panic mode. just try to tell yourself as soon as possible “i know what this is. this is not real.”

Interpretation #16 by Anonymous

It is absolutely amazing that I am not the only one that has experienced this! I really wonder if it’s just stress. Do you guys remember if you were stressed/anxious or had eaten something in particular before your spider dreams? My mom just asked me why I would try to reach out and grab the “spider” coming down at me.. I think my rational brain was trying to figure out if what I was witnessing was real or not, but that’s just a guess!

Thanks so much for this board!

Interpretation #17 by Anonymous

I had a dream like this last night after having a really really stressful and worrying day, so yeah I think for me definitely it was about fear. I apparently screamed really loudly, my husband came in to see what was going on and when I woke up I was actually out of my bed (I wasn’t paralysed in my dream – I was able to roll away to get away from the spider. I guess I rolled in real life!)
The weird thing is that I apparently shouted “science is on my face!”

I’m struggling to connect why I would say science when it was a spider.

Interpretation #18 by Anonymous

These dreams happen to me all the time and I usually have to quickly jump out of bed. It takes me at least 30 seconds to realize that it isn’t real, I’ve told my mum but she doesn’t seem to care. I’m 15 and don’t know what to do and don’t know why I keep having these dreams. I don’t understand them.

Interpretation #19 by Anonymous

I used to have this dream when I was in my early twenties/late teens. After being tortured with it for years, one night, when I was having the dream, instead of the usual flying out of bed and turning on the lights to find the spider (which wasn’t there because it was a dream), I starred at the spider saying, “You are not real. You won’t hurt me.” I said this as the spider was descending on me and I literally watched it break up and disappear, and that was the LAST time I ever had the dream.

I’m truly sorry to hear you are having such a rough time w/ the spider dream. That is truly horrifying, what you described. I think you should find a way to violently and dominantly crush or incinerate the spider as it descends. Force yourself to be the monster of the dream and utterly destroy the threat.

Also, try keeping a light diary/journal logging whats going on in your head/emotions etc and match it up when the dream occurs. Try to discover if triggers exist. Good luck.

Interpretation #21

I don’t claim to have all the answers but I have been having the the same I wouldn’t say dream because I’m not fully asleep. My theory is you are between realms and I think that is the time when we should be creating. I am not threatened or attacked by these spiders because they are sometimes changing colors when it is floating down. I wish someone would come up with a more concrete answer

I have the same dream just twice in my life. The first time happened to be a big spider of the size of a big plate that was attached somehow into my face. That dream was so lucid that happened to me that, as soon as I opened my eyes (and something was calling me to wake up), I saw the colors of the raimbow tru the very body of the spider, until it just jump off to the wall and then ran outside my bedroom window. Tha was when I had 16 or 17 years old.

Some days ago from today, like two or three days before, just dreamed a black spider hanging from the ceiling and coming down over my chest. I felt exactly the same feeling of eager to wake and when I opened my eyes, just saw that spider kinda like bouncing and spining suspended on its web. My reflex reaction was to trow a hand like a punch over it but didnt felt it at all, moreover, I found later on some strange marks on my wrist of what seems to be four spider legs, kinda like I was burned over skin and are getting even more brown with the days but dont fell anything like itch or something odd.

I decided to google this kind of dream and I got amazed on how much people have this kind of dreams too. But also I’m a bit scared of the last one because of the marks…

I searched the whole appartment and found nothing, and also worth to mention I live in a 13th floor, wich make me think I’m pretty away of wild animals if there where any in my surroundings…

What you think people??

Wow, I’ve been tortured by the exact same dream for about 6 years now. The first time it happened I discovered just after that someone was betraying me, an other time it was just before my fiancé proposed me. I’ve the feeling that the spider is actually a good thing trying to tell us to be aware of our environment , good or bad things might be happening without our knowledge and that’s why we need to wake up. I prefer to consider the spider a friend that is waking me up to situations. What do you think?

I’ve had the same realistic spider dream… Usually when I’m alone. The difference is the spider isn’t coming from the ceiling (I sleep on my stomach or side usually) but it’s always the same… It’s not a dream as it is a hallucination of a single spider on my pillow or on the wall next to my bed. I had the same last night… This time was just the giant legs of an abnormally large spider coming out of my window curtains… I woke up screaming and my gf and I both jumped out of bed. She asked in a hysterical panic “what was it, a cockroach?” And I just started laughing my ass off. Slept well the rest of the night. The spiders never made contact with me. And were never malicious.

My wife has had this exact same dream since about the time we both graduated from college. It’s usually within the first hour of falling asleep (so is that too early for REM?) The first time she had it, she leapt out of bed screaming and knocked the tv off the dresser and onto the bed. That was over ten years ago. Then again, about 30 minutes ago same dream, this time she jumped up and yelled out something about bugs then went to turn the light on to try to find the spider. I told her she was dreaming and she’s asleep again now. I’m googling it to find if there’s any meaning and found this page. My theory of what this dream means is that it not really a dream but rather an expression of some form of anxiety or stress because this almost always happens during stressful times or anxiety.

I have been having similar dreams for over a week now. Waking up screaming and running around like a crazy woman! I am never in the same place but it always involves me being face to face with 20 little spiders and I walk through their webs (face first) when i’m in bed i feel like they are crawling all over me and start scratching and slapping myself in the hope i squash them, it got to the point that I was actually scared to go to bed and I had to hoover every inch of my room and wash all of my bedding and that night I had the best nights sleep but it has started again now but the spiders are now tarantulas and are on top of the fridge but I still walked through webs across my face! I am scared of spiders just to add

I cant believe there are so any people experiencing this strange dream! I thought I was alone. I have been having this dream for about 10 years now. For me the spider is not that clear, it will often be a misinterpreted pattern in the duvet or mark on the wall. Sometimes it might crawl down the curtain, hang from a thread or be crawling up the duvet towards me. I nearly always shout ‘no no no no!’ and jump over my partner and turn the light on. I am so used to this dream now that it normally takes just a few seconds and the flick of the light switch to acknowledge what has happened because it has happened so many times before. But in the early days it might have taken up to 30 mins, after stripping the bed and searching my room to finally work up the courage to get back into bed, sometimes not fully believing that it was dream. Now I often laugh at myself as soon as I realise what I’ve done, get back into bed and get off to sleep with no problems. Obviously this is an improvement but my god is it annoying to still be doing it! The best is when my boyfriend wakes up suddenly equally as scared because of my sudden exit from the bed and screaming. Lucky he loves me!

Wow, so many of you having the same dream. Having a reoccurring terrifying dream like this is a message for us to look for answers. I went to google for answers too. Only thing is there are 2 different paths to dream interpretation. The path I believe is the real one lead me to the truth about this dream.

This may not make any sense to some who read it. Its worth sharing if even 1 person receives truth to lead them to the freedom this dream is trying to bring.

I was searching for answers & a friend I know who it a dream interpreter told me what spiders represent.
They represent curses & witchcraft.
It made sense to me because ‘free mason’ were in my family history & this can cause sickness & bondage if not dealt with.
I seek to know what dreams really mean from people who really understand them. I don’t want to waste my time with people who think they know but people who really know.

A dream interpreter that I trust is John Paul Jackson.

Also if you want to read the dream definition dictionary it really helped me with other dreams I was having too.

You Can go to http://www.unlockingyourdreams.org/index.php/dream-dictionary/

I have recently been dreaming about breaking spider webs & the spider dies. So for someone who has had these reoccurring dreams about spiders & stepping out to get free from it, well the dreams are changing! Just saying that this is what’s truly going to sent you free.

Hypnosis & other forms of dream interpretation will just cover over the problem & not deal & heal it. These forms are a big bandaid they don’t heal but make you more infected over the years.

I hope this helps even 1 person!

Bless you on your journey.

Yup, this has happened to me for about 3 years now. Typically right within the first hour or two of sleep, different sizes of spiders, all of them crawling towards my face (each occurrence only involves one spider). The occurrences have been increasing substantially for me over the past few months, corresponding to an increase in stress and uncertainty in my life (looming layoffs at work). Good to know I’m not alone in experiencing these night horrors!

I’ve had a similar dream a couple of times, roughly goes like this.. Im lowering myself into a cave (deep/vertical) as I go down further and further I see huge gaps branching from the main shaft. Close to the bottom my feet get stuck, the rope isnt there anymore, and im caught amongst thick ropelike strands of web. I start looking around for spiders, duh. (If your a lucid dreamer you know what this is like) because when i dream i still have some measure of control over my thought processes. Then the worst part. I look up, (im frozen, cant move, control gone, etc.) Just one, big ass Lord of the rings/Harry Potter, Goliath looking thing is slowly lowering itself from above, then it just drops, I wake up. Worst s**t ever.
