  1. Yesterday I got into a fight with my mom and right now I had a dream where I came home but there was a lot going on and one thing was my parents bought a salamander as a pet. I kept getting drawn to the salamander and eventually took it out of the cage because I really wanted to hold it. Throughout the dream I lost and found it in the couch. Definitely believe this article is right…change is coming

  2. I had a very odd dream the other night; I dreamed that I was being chased by a salamander the size of a small dog that was red and on fire. What does that mean?

  3. I had a dream that I got out of a truck parked on leaves and on the ground there were salamanders everywhere. Huge ones and small ones and some coming out of the other ones and I was trying not to step on them. I’m scared to death of animals like that.

  4. I don’t exactly remember what i was doing with other people but in a moment an animal appeared and followed the action of me and other actors of the dream. then arrives a sort of spirirual dance coach explaining an exercise and then he comes to me and we spoke and walked togher . The animal followed us. Only at the “end” I asked the specie of this animal and he told me “its a salamander, and she (the salamander) came inside my pullover up to my arm . The choreographer : “dont be afraid of it” so i relaxed and salamander came of cleaning her face.

    I dont know if the animal i saw is a salamander or a sort of anfibios i invented so the queation is : was it a salamander in my dream because the choreographer told me that ?

    I had a dream a few nights ago about a huge salamander in an empty apartment. I was scared of it and running from it until it bit me. I wasn’t scared anymore but I did get angry. That feeling went away quick though. It wasn’t until I meditated for the first time that I was able to remember my dream for the first time in a while. The word SALAMANDER stood out and flashed several times in my dream. I have a complete understanding of what it meant now.

  6. I had a dream last night about a big salamander with a huge tail (about as long as its body) eating a snake. What does that mean?

  7. I woke up in the middle of yhe night around 4 am, i heard a knock on the bedroom sliding glass door, there was a shadow on the glass of a salamander, i watched it crawl up the glass,to above the blinde,onto the wall,crawled to the corner of the blind, and sat there. I jumped out of bed!! Turned on the light. It was gone. I even opened tje blind to look for it. Turned out the light, went back to bed, it appeared again. At first i thought it was a dream inside of a dream. But i am to question if i was awake. I see things offen like that. I was surprised I got scared.

    Hello, I had a dream related with salamanders . But I don’t know what to think about this strange dream. In my dream somebody was telling me things, I don’t know this person. He said that there is a kind of evil in the place I was. He told me that the way I would recognise it would be when I see a salamander. He also told me that I was protected from that evil and my protection was a tattoo of chains in my right arm, when I saw my arm I realized that in effect I had the said tattoo. The next day in the morning (this is in my dream) when I woke up I saw the tattoo in my right arm but when I saw my other arm I had a tattoo of a salamander. I remembered what the person told me about salamanders and I felt bad. Suddenly I realized that the salamander started to become alive and it was going out of my arm. Then I also realized that the salamander started to grow and I look at its belly and I saw eggs growing inside it as well. So I thought that I couldn’t allow that evil to grow and multiplied either, so I grabbed a big stick and started to killing that animal. That is how my dream basically finished.
    After reading the meaning of dreaming with a salamander, I don’t know how to interpret my dream. I would like to know what do you think about it?
