Remember, sometimes it is necessary to slow the pace down in order to see with clarity. If you act with a clear mind, with your sights set on the future, you can avoid difficult situations.

Crushing a snail is a sign you are over being patient. You are sick of it. You want things to start moving again. Beware. Pushing things may result in a disaster.

    I had a dream where snails were all gathered in a place, like a shallow hole on the ground. Small small snails, then one very big one that started eating the small snails. I was walking by with a friend, and my friend stopped to pick the snail, I told her to drop it, and seeing that the snail was small, she dropped it and we walked away. That was how I woke up. Pls I need interpretation.
