The dreamer is a woman and has been under a lot of stress lately.
“I dreamed that I was a boy down south exploring nature with my guy friends. All of a sudden a giant alligator ate my friend. I saw his shoes outside the alligators mouth with his body completely inside. The alligator then ate my friend completely and I ran for my life.”
Alligators in a dream reflect a sense of danger about a situation. If you see anyone being eating by an alligator it may reflect hopes, situations, or relationships being “eaten up” by something you perceive to be emotionally dangerous. If you have been under a lot of stress lately then this dream may be a sign that your perception of something being dangerous is preventing you from exploring any new opportunities that you were considering. You may have be holding yourself back by not confronting your more powerful underlying fears.
