I had a dream that this blue butterfly landed on right above my top lip, on my philtrum. Then there was this stinging sensation that quickly became painful, exactly where the butterfly was. After that, my eyeballs had became liquified, and dripped out of my eyesockets. (This dream was honestly one of the worst I’ve had.)
i dreamed a white butterfly fly into my grandparents house, and then i started to run inside my uncle’s room. because in real life, i already afraid of every kind of butterflies.
In my dream, I was lyring down in my room. When I sat up, I found a monarch butterfly beside me. Then suddenly, I ripped its wings (it scared me, I didn’t know what I was doing) Then when I stood up, there were multiple dead butterflies on the floor, all their wings were ripped. I walked to the door, and just above the doorknob, there was a butterfliy’s body (no wings) sitting there. Then, I woke up.

I had a dream of a multicolored butterfly flying and landing in my hand. And it flew away and light was coming from it when it landed and killed a snake. Afterwards, it ate its head. I’ve always had unorthodox dreams all of my life.

The peacock also attacked, killed and ate the snake that came out of nowhere.
