Snail dreams are one of the most disturbing dreams that people have. Many have had recurring dreams about seeing snails, picking snails in dreams or eating snails.

In this dream interpretation article, we will explore the following:

  • Snail spiritual meaning
  • Biblical meaning of snail
  • Snail symbolism in christianity
  • What do snails represent in the bible
  • What is the meaning of picking snail in the dream

Dreams about snails mostly appear to be a blessing or good dreams, but they really are not. No one should be happy about dreaming about snails; this is because these dreams can have serious negative implications on the waking life of dreamer—if they are not seriously prayed against and cancelled.

What is the spiritual meaning of picking snail in the dream? It is not a blessing to pick snails in the dream. We can say that the spiritual meaning of picking snails in the dream is rather the direct opposite of a blessing. God wants us to prosper and make progress in life, but through snail dreams, the enemy wants the reverse to happen to us. 


Biblical Meaning Of Snails In Dreams


What do snails represent in dreams? Snail dreams can be attributed to the sluggard spirit—as mentioned in scriptures on several occasions.

Proverbs 6:9 KJV
How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?

A sluggard is not just used to refer to a lazy person. From the word “sluggard” we have “sluggish”. A snail moves sluggishly and often appears to be sleepy while trying to reach its destination. A sluggish person is a slow-moving person.

The Bible makes us understand that there is no prosperity in being a sluggish person in life. 

Proverbs 6:6 KJV
Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise. 

God gives us divine speed in life; He gives us supernatural speed and progress. Therefore, if the enemy can hinder a person's velocity of progress, that is definitely going to negatively impact their ability to prosper and succeed in life.

Proverbs 13:4 KJV
The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.

It is God's will that every child of God makes good progress, prospers and succeed in life, but let us also be mindful of the fact that the enemy always wants the direct opposite of what God wants for us. 

Proverbs 10:26 KJV
As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him.

Seeing snails in dreams is not and can never be a good omen. Whenever anyone sees a snail in their dream, they must understand that... 

  • There is an attack against them, to steal their blessings and make their life miserable. 
  • The spirit of setbacks is at work, to bring about poverty and lack. 
  • Foundational powers have risen against them, in their attempt to rob them of their ability to prosper. 
  • There is a serious spiritual attack against them, with the intent to cripple every source of income they have. 
  • The overall purpose for this attack is to ensure that the dreamer returns to a worse state—to poverty, lack and shame. 

But rest assured, the enemy always has a plot, but God's plans and thoughts are always higher. So long we remain in God, the enemy will not win. 

I Saw Plenty Snails In Dream


Most snail dreams are products of generational curses and demonic covenants with foundational spirits or family altars and idols. 

Like I explained in our previous article about evil foundations, these things exist and exert their influence on innocent family members for evil reasons. They do not want the progress and prosperity of anyone who does not submit to them in the family. 

What does seeing a snail mean spiritually? Whenever a person sees a snail in their dream, they should understand that the evil foundations of their family are exerting influence upon their life—attempting to hinder their progress and frustrate their efforts to become great in life. 

The snail spirit is against the progress and prosperity of a person. Its purpose is to bring unnecessary delay, setbacks and frustration to the dreamer's life.

Undoubtedly, there are things that are supposed to happen in a person's life within God-assigned timeframe, but the snail spirit fights to ensure that a lot of things are delayed in the dreamer's life—and if possible, even diverted. 

If you saw plenty snail in your dream, the attack is massive. Do not treat such a dream lightly, but rise up and pray seriously against it. You don't want the plots of darkness to begin manifesting in your life. 

Why People See Snails In Their Dreams


There are times snail dreams will manifest as a result of disobedience to God. Understand that God wants the best for us. God wants us to experience forward progress in life, but disobeying God often places man at the mercy of the enemy. 

Living in sin comes at a cost. The Bible lets us know that anyone who is born of God does not continue in sin, and for this reason, the evil one does not touch them (1 John 5:18). But the reverse can happen, if a child of God decides to continue in sin. Therefore, most dreams of snails will likely show up after a Christian has fallen into sin. 

If you are from a family where there exists evil foundations and evil altars, you must understand that these things are always on the look out for opportunities to frustrate the life of those family members who refuse to submit to them. 

In order to stay above the activities of evil foundation and family altars, one has to  walk blamelessly before God. You cannot compromise your obedience to God. 

Even after deliverance, disobedience to God gets people back under the shackles of evil foundations. Once this happens, it is very likely that the one affected will begin to dream about snails. 

To be more specific, the following factors can trigger dreams about snails:

  • Disobedience to God 
  • Compromise 
  • Lukewarmness
  • Lack of adequate prayer
  • Falling into sin

Snail dreams target a person's destiny, prosperity and progress. When a person lives in disobedience to God, they indirectly obey and submit themselves to family altars. When that happens, they have just given the enemy an open door to attack and destroy them. Wisdom should tell anyone reading this that, the key is to stay obedient to God and prayerful at all times!

Dreaming about snails has frustrated many lives; it has delayed and denied many of their blessings. The snail spirit has caused many to miss their God-ordained time, opportunities and connections. If you want to stay above the influence of the snail spirit, you must stay on fire and stay loyal to God. There are no alternatives to this. 

Biblical Meaning Of Picking Snails In The Dream


Most people always wake up baffled after they found themselves picking snails in the dream. I know that there are sources that interpret such dreams as a blessing, but sooner or later, the dreamer is bound to realize it wasn't a blessing—the moment the effect of this dream begins to manifest in their life. 

Snail dreams come to rob, not to bless. They come to take away, not to give. At times, after dreaming about snails, the dreamer may begin to experience unnatural fatigue and sluggishness. They will lose motivation to pursue their goals and achieve greatness. They will cease becoming productive. This is not ordinary, but a spiritual attack. 

Seeing snails in dreams brings about unnecessary fatigue and spiritual laziness. People wake up unwilling to engage in any productive task that could bring them closer to their destiny. This is definitely not God's plan for your life. 

Picking Up Snails In The Dream


From all that has been said so far, I'm sure you now understand that picking snails in dreams does not mean that God is about to bless you. Instead of a blessing, such a dream is often a curse from the enemy; an avenue to wreck the dreamer's life. 

To pick many snails in a dream means that the dreamer has come under the curses and influence of foundational spirits. Due to the dreamer's compromise and disobedience to God, they have given the control of their life over to the enemy. Only serious prayers and consecration can restore them back in God's hands. 

The person who sees this type of dreams should immediately start fasting and praying ruggedly to break away from the shackles of darkness operating in their foundation. 

Reject and rebuke these sort of dreams, command them to cease in the Name of Jesus Christ.
