        I read the article but there isn’t much information related to what my dream was about. In my dream there was a giant white and pink worm who was my friend we had a deep bond like best friends and it was very protective of me. The last part of my dream that I can remember before I woke up the worm was looking at me with the most adorable smile with light shining behind it. If you end up referring me back to the article above, is there any chance you could tell me which specific sections fit what my dream might mean?

          You may find that such a dream may not be related directly to the worm itself. It is possible that its appearance may be related to something else in your life. You may have consumed media that may have caused you to think of this white and pink worm and your friend. Consider the worm and its behaviors, and apply that insight into your waking life. Nourish your relationship by spending additional time together in person with your friend.
