    I had a dream last night that I was outside on a warm July night. I was with other people, I don’t really remember who. I was sitting down Indian style & I saw this awesome looking lavender grasshopper. It was very strong, it could jump higher than anyone’s height. Everyone scrambled to catch it & it just jumped into my shirt & on my back. It kept jumping under my clothes & it was actually annoying me. I kept trying to grab it & everyone was yelling at me to grab it. Then it jumped right into my left hand(free hand, my right hand was trying to get it out of my clothes). Everyone cheered & it jumped up & down on my hand then it went back into my clothes but for some reason I was no longer bothered by it

  2. I dreamt about these red things that may have been hairless rats or big grasshoppers. The first time I dreamt about them they were on the ground the second time they were in a box in a garage my son and I were exploring. There was two of them. They put there noses under something in the box like they were trying to lift it. We backed away from them think they were trapped but they climbed out of the box and one jumped on my head. I could feel it was heavy. I asked my son if it was still on me and he said it was. I tried to knock it off but it ducked away from my hand. Then I woke up.
    Anyone know what this might mean?

  3. I dreamt that there were three grey-ish coloured grassoppers on the wall at my home I killed them and when I walked in the next room there were six grassshoppers so I killed them also. When I went back to the other room there were 12 grasshoppers on the wall that’s when I stopped killing them and thought “This is weird, why are they here and how can there be more of them all of the sudden?” Then I woke up. I’ve been dreaming alot about insects recently, mostly centipedes.

      If you caan remember how many you saw in the first room, it may be a number message. 6 has a mean & so does 12(in numerology) or perhaps a personal connection to those numbers. As per the explimation above, maybe you’ll be coming in contact with money soon. It may be a lottery or a month(using the number 6 or 12 or the number of grasshoppers in the first room). I do highly recommend looking into numerology. 12 can mean to change your ways & 6 represents something for divine barrage, amount other things. Neither of these are negative in any manner, they’re ‘learning to grow’ numbers.

  4. Had a dream that a grasshopper was in the bedroom staring at me. In the dream I tried to wake my husband and when he stirred the grasshopper jumped into my mouth. In the dream, I felt panic and didn’t know what to do and tried to spit the grasshopper out of my mouth but couldn’t. Then I woke up. The grasshopper was a dark brown with amber or gold markings……. no idea what this could mean.

  5. Dreamed about hundreds and thousands of grasshoppers in my home I wanted to chase them away by opening my front door. Try to get a jacket so they wouldn’t attack me couldn’t decide which one, door was open once I decided a man came and slept I my couch as I was chasing many of them away woke up freaking scared didn’t want to search online because I knew dreams interpretations online are way consuming Yup

  6. that night of dreaming a grasshopper in which I dreamed about my grandmother turn into young one in which she let me to lie down the mat on the floor then I see the GRASSHOPPER . when I tried to take a hand into it , it bit me suddenly on my PALM and every time I pull it out on my palm then is bit again my other hand literally on my PALM from LEFT to RIGHT. so until it brings me to shout louder then I have woke up

    I just dreamt that a monster size grasshopper was leaning in through a cruise ship window and ate a man. I think it came after us and we killed it.

  8. Ines Vazquez on

    I just had a dream about a very large, distinct grasshopper making a loud noise and biting and latching onto my leg.

  9. I dreamed of a very large grasshopper flying around and on my bedroom door. I didn’t know whether to catch it and set if free outside or just kill it.
    There was also holes and weird stains on the door and I could see some family members walking past up and down the hallway.
    Pretty soon I fell asleep in the dream (??) and then I woke up in the dream and fell back to sleep and then I finally woke up for real. I hope the symbol of the grasshopper in my dream is a positive one since I’ve been having such a hard time these past few years- thank you

  10. I dreamed about me and my mom attempting to catch a grasshopper in the house. When I woke up, I found a grasshopper on our porch, how strange.

  11. I just woke up in the middle of the night with a grasshopper hopping on my arms.. I was so scared since I have never seen one before. And I was wondering how would a grasshopper be able to get inside our house since we live on the 4th floor. So because I was too scared, I kinda shooed it away and it fell on the edge of my bed. Then by the morning I woke up I found it dead omg I feel so bad TT

  12. I dreamt abt a green grasshopper in a corner in a glass bottle with water and the water was also green. Dnt knw what that means

  13. Fascinating. So I dreamt of a grasshopper landing by parachute into my home. I was weary about it bc it was making a lot of noise and I worried it would drive my family nuts so I kept trying to kill it with a fly swatter but it wouldn’t die. In fact it would turn into a funny emoji face and stick it’s tongue out Everytime I tried to smack it. It was actually comical and as much as I wanted to shut the thing up, I was relieved it was making funny faces instead of getting hurt or squashed. Ironically I have a very close family member that was recently diagnosed with dementia and is going to need our support and financial help. It’s been and will continue to be a painful journey bc my father also had dementia and passed away a few years ago. I would have never put the two together! Amazing!

  14. The grasshoper bit me..and leave a sting on my fingers..I feel so much pain..and after it bit took my money on his mouth..
    How about that??

  15. Hi there. I had a dream that my mother was telling me that when I was little, I’d had a pet grasshopper named Rumi that I loved and adored. I’d also had a pet ant (ant or cricket) that I accidentally squished trying to run a 3-legged race with it). I do in real life have ants at my place of business and had just jokingly called them pets, and also, my nickname is Cricket, so this is rather complex for me to decode. Any help is appreciated!
