  1. I had a dream that I had humming birds attacking me but I ran my fingers through my hair behind my head and felt a big spider in my hair. I started panicking and pulled it out of my hair and the humming bird wasn’t attacking me it was protecting me from the spiders but it killed the spider by sucking the spiders insides out. What does that mean please help I don’t really ever remember dreams but this one stuck out to me
