What are possible meanings for dreams of zombies?
One of the primary ways zombies are used in dreams is to symbolize mindlessness. Being surrounded by zombies in a dream can symbolize the feeling of being surrounded by stupidity. Your world is full of the walking dead. People are driven by the most primitive of instincts. Your opinion of people and society are very low. It’s an easy connection to make, bearing in mind that the comparison with zombies is an exaggeration.
Extend the idea to situations where you are bored out of your mind. Conversations are tedious. Silence is deafening.
Extend the idea further to situations where a person can’t think of what to say or freezes with panic. A blank expression on someone’s face is comparable in an exaggerated way to a zombie’s blank expression.
A zombie can symbolize something that won’t die, such as a bad habit or negative attachment. It can symbolize a change that isn’t completed.
Zombies are awesome symbols for feeling sluggish and lifeless. Energy level is low. You have no inspiration. “The walking dead.”
Zombie often goes hand in hand with “apocalypse.” See: Apocalypses
A zombie is dead but still alive, and that association can be used to describe a situation such as hoping to get back together with an ex. The relationship is dead but your hope for it is alive.

I died in a dream and it continued without me.
The synopsis of the dream is basically that there was a zombie apocalypse and only my sister, myself and my uncle were alive and surviving together in a city. My sister got bit and was chasing me next to a sewage canal thing like those in GTA or cities like L.A, except it was smaller in width, but deeper and steeper. I decided that I was living in a hell and I didn’t want to die by my sister because that’s sad so I jumped into the canal and on the way down it cut to a third person view and my head smashed into the other side and fucking exploded with blood and gore splattering everywhere. Next thing I know, it’s like a movie camera that cut back to my uncle, who was hiding in a closet. He was hiding on a rooftop and heard activity and went outside and there was the military there to save him. And just like that it ended. What’s your interpretations?

Being shot multiple times?
I had a dream where I was in my primary school’s pool. It was full and everything. There was a man standing just behind the pool and laughing. My classmates were in the pool too but they were sort of zombies? They were trying to kill me. The man just behind the pool was holding a sort of gun which looked like one of those cameras cops catch your speed on. I was running around the pool, screaming and crying closely followed by my zombieish classmates who were trying to kill me. The man pulled the trigger of the gun thing and it felt so painful. It felt like my back was spasming. Then I was back in the pool and it happened again. This happened multiple times. This was all in the same dream too. It hurt so bad. Anyone have any ideas why I dreamt that?

Vivid dream third night in a row
I was driving around the town that I live in. I remember being scared because there were heaps of homeless people around me (that looked deranged). They were all African American (which I guess refers to an unknown part of my payche, or even my shadow? I perceive it to be my shadow figure, but I could be wrong in assuming that) and they kept on looking at me with evil faces. I get out of my car and one of them pick up my car keys. All of them are walking like zombies, almost. I decide to attack him and get my keys back. When I do, I decide to ditch the car and start skateboarding. I hit a ramp, and fly to the top of a high building. There are backpacks, debris, filth, etc. Basically you could tell there were homeless people there. I feel like an intruder and try my best to hide, but they find me and start coming towards me. Thats when the dream ends.

Snakes, why did it have to be snakes?
For a second night in a row I had a dream. This time it was different from the last. Something I should mention is some of my fears. I'm afraid of losing my memory like getting amnesia or developing dementia, I'm afraid of zombies, afraid of being completely alone (losing friends and family) and lastly snakes.
This dream I was just waking up in bed. The sheets were various animal pelts and on the floor there was a small monitor lizard running around and a couple different snakes. My wife was telling me to pick up one of the snakes. I kept refusing so she eventually picked up a milk snake and tried to get me to touch it. I kept telling her no that I don't want to touch the snake. Even the milk snake was getting an expression that was saying it didn't want to be touched by me because I was refusing to touch it. Then I woke up.
It did turn out that my wife was trying to talk to me to get me to wake up while I was having my dream. And yes she is aware of my fear of snakes.
