    Had a dream about worms. Worms were falling into my room from the wall, initially they were dropping one after the other. When they fall into the room, they quickly crawl away for cover. After a few minutes, a “mountain” of worms just dropped at the same time. Please what does this mean?

    Wow! I think you got it right! I’ve been surpassing this feeling of vengeance for years now and I thought it’s gone but recently, something has happened to me which got me really angry, then this old me feels like it’s back.
