To see a lizard in a dream
If you see a lizard in a dream that suggests that you will move. You are probably used to moving often in search of better life conditions, which enables you to get to know other cultures and take what you find useful from each one.

  5. I had a dream I was in my store. It wasn’t my hometown store, no, so I have no idea where I was. I was shopping with my friend and we were looking at cool ranch doritios (I really love them). Suddenly I was holding my bearded dragon, who died recently. The dream went on but during the dream I was still holding him.
