To dream of a centipede represents beliefs or situations that you feel are so unpleasant that you’ll do anything to avoid them. It may also reflect feelings about enemies that annoy you or putting up with people you really don’t like. Feeling bothered by someone or something that is imposing itself on you.
Negatively, it may also reflect a fear or annoyance of never getting to discuss something you like ever again. Fearing conditions that are completely out of touch with your wishes. Fearing permanent choices that are out of your control.
Example: A woman dreamed of seeing dead and half-dead centipedes in a sink of water as she washed lettuce. In waking life she had an unwanted pregnancy which motivated her to get an abortion. The dream may have reflected her mixed feelings about thinking an abortion would be emotionally easy to handle.
Example 2: A young girl dreamed of an centipede that needed to be killed. In waking life her boyfriend broke up with her and told her that he never wanted to discuss getting back together again, but then later told her he nay want to at a much later date.
