In my dream there was this large golden centipede crawling on the ceilingâ€“it kept following me throughout the dream until the person who was with me plucked it from the ceiling and crushed it. Afterwards tiny golden centipede just came out of nowhere. Anyone know what it could mean?

Killing an animal

To see someone other than yourself committing the slaughter; indicates either your own inability to execute the final decisive action or it may also represent your lack of emotional care towards your own well-being. In either case, the killing of centipede by someone other than yourself may indicate your lack of assertion in your own actions.
Ceiling or Roof representation
