  1. I dreamt being chased by a white big unicorn. With its companion. The companions are small ones. They are tied up and they are using the tie to catch me up. The unicorn was talking like asking me to do something in favor for her but I ignored so I ended up being chased. They didn’t catch me. In the end I run and had a scape from them. I just wanna know the meaning please. I don’t really have dreams. This is the second dream I have now. Two or three nights ago I dreamt of being chased by a very big dark green snake too. And he catches me. He even bite me in the hands trying to stop it from griping my right foot

I could also see the blood flow of the tree. It looked as if it was green, with a constant flow. Noething bad or scary, everything was just wonderful.

What on earth does this signify?

  11. I have become more spiritual this past year and 2 weeks ago I had a dream about a unicorn. I was with my mom,dad and brother and we pulled out a baby horse from mud in a ditch. When we did, I looked over to the side and seen 2 horses and in between them was a glowing white unicorn with wings. The unicorn bowed to me as if it was thankful for us saving the baby horse, then I woke up. The sky that morning was absolutely beautiful and I felt good all day. The next day I was telling my mom about the dream while we were shopping at the mall. The next store I went into shortly after sharing my dream the cashier was wearing a gold unicorn necklace, later that night I was watching a movie with my daughter and there was a whole scene about a girls stuffed unicorn animal. What does this mean and are these synchronicities?

  12. Last night I dreamt of 3 gorgeous blue unicorns! One had long beautiful hair all over it’s body and I watched them prance around in a paddock. I asked my husband if they smelled good. They were quite spectacular, I’m thinking it’s a good omen! ☺

    • I had a dream of 4 blue unicorns Flying up towards the sky. I was sitting in the back seat of a car and looked outside the window when I saw the first 3 unicorns and then the 4th one not long after them. Not really sure what it means hope its good 😀

  13. What does it mean if I had a dream of Unicorn on the roof of my apartment and when I told him that my life is so pissed can you help me, it then jumps from the roof to the bottom and dies.

    • How exciting, Anastasia! My first daughter was born with a swirl of hair on her forehead, as if she would grow a horn 😀 Best wishes with your unicorn baby 😉
