Anatomy in Dreams

Body parts in dreams and their conditions may carry rather obvious symbolic meanings either universal or Biblical, and thus can be excellent dream elements. More than one of these symbols can be employed simultaneously.


By divine strength, spiritual empowerment/gifting

Relating to faith

Position of authority just under someone as in right hand man or Jesus at the right of the Father

By human strength or effort

By natural gifting

Note that the left side of a car is the driver’s side

Possibly relating to analytical thinking

In need of or lacking something

Abundance, carrying favor or prosperity, healthy

Concerning weight issues

Elevated position in reality or in the dreamer’s perception

Lower position in reality or in the dreamer’s perception

This person is being labeled/marked by others or their spiritual enemy


This may be a Biblical Element

Identity- Ex 28:36-38, Numbers 24:17, Rev 13:16, Rev 14:1

Remembrance- Ex 13:9-16, Deuteronomy 11:18, Isaiah 48:4

True self, essence of the person

A person’s presence (as in the face of God)

A person’s reputation

A spiritual being. This may be true if the face is missing as in a hooded creature with darkness inside or if the dreamer just never is able to view the face because the person is behind or beside him.

Different from UNSEEN FACES. Faces that the dreamer can’t recall may simply be a detail insignificant to the dream.
Or the dreamer wasn’t supposed to remember the face as it would be “too much information” and throw the dreamer off what the focus should be.

The negative interpretation is related to stubbornness and obstinacy.

The positive interpretation is related to perseverance and risk-taking.

Concerning life

Concerning speaking life through faith

Concerning your speech

Concerning authority, accomplishment, reward, honor or pride

Concerning nurturing or mentoring someone or something

Concerning sustenance or maintenance

Personal information may be kept in these babies! So this may be concerning relationship protection

Out of sight, what you can’t see such as betrayal

Concerning the past

“Outstretched arm”- strength and might reaching out

An extension of something

You guessed it: the smelliest place in the anatomy

1. Concerning relationships (especially if you are female)

2. May be concerning work (especially if you are male)

But depending on the context and application, either may apply, most likely the first.

Having to do with supporting the weight of something.

Having to do with retaining uprightness and possibly balance.

This definitely is about the level of activity of the person, so a large one may indicate not enough activity. I once dreamed I was patted on the behind and it was fulfilled when I was cut short of my activity in court (I thought I would be put on the stand, but wasn’t).

If showing, concerning reproduction

Mobility and power for victory and protection

This may be Biblical. Covenant(commitment/contract) and/or identity, Revelation 19:16.

Regarding a person’s submission or independence

Well, well, we finally received a dream about the knee; so we can add it to the dictionary.

The knee is both a universal and Biblical element. In both cases, it most often refers to “submission and humility” as in subjects falling to their knees before a king.

Surprisingly, most Bible references to the knee are in the same context, although they sometimes refer to bowing before the King of kings rather than a national king.

Many passages, of course, refer to kneeling for prayer as Daniel did.

The dream spoken of at the top of this entry was of a hairy knee of a woman trying, but unable to shave the hair. Hair on a knee would indicate that the hair on that area of the body has not been worn down by use. So the interpretation is that the woman needs help in the area of submission of humility. She alone would know what relationship of her life this refers to (God, husband, boss, etc.).

KNEE- 2nd possibility

A second possibility when considering symbolism for the knee is also both universal and Biblical, and has to do with a person seated on another person’s knee. This is generally associated with love and affection.

This may be Biblical. If so, it means “Almighty Rescuer”.

Shin is the 21st letter of Hebrew alphabet. It stands for Shaddai (Almighty). Gematria = 300, completion. The shin hour is the latest possible moment for an action.

In other words, Almighty God showing up at the 11th hour.

Concerning your walk, that is what you are doing

If something is at your feet, it’s very near, and you may have authority over it.


Glory, wisdom, anointing, essence, the real you


Changing for better or worse (better may be light colored)

Concerning a negative change initiated by the person
Or a significant pruning of that person for their good from God

Concerning being gently pruned by the Lord for their good

Wisdom, maturity

Positive interpretation indicates purity.

Negative interpretation may indicate false purity.


Lack of it on someone who has it in real life may indicate immaturity.

If the dreamer doesn’t wear a wig, its symbolism would be similar to makeup or clothes.

If the dreamer normally wears one, this would represent their hair. If it comes off in the dream, the person is exposed (good or bad).

If the wig is on backward, the person may be moving in the opposite direction that they should.

No worries, we doubt that this person has cancer. We strongly suggest that this about an inner spiritual condition which could be described as a disease that needs to and will be removed.


If it’s the dreamer’s eyes, it may concern the insight or perceptiveness of the person.

If another’s eyes, their character of them may serve as a window to the condition of the soul (what’s going on inside).

This generally has to do with discernment as in “I smell something”.

Like the eyes, this concerns perceptiveness.

It’s not hard to figure out that this may be about your speech.

Maybe someone is leading you on, just giving you “lip service”?


About issues of information, wisdom, or foolishness

Having to do with wisdom

Eye teeth indicate the need for something to hold on to like an encouraging word, a verse from scripture, a prophetic word, a dream or vision

Front teeth indicate issues concerning openness to receive information

Having to do with slowing down to think something through


Can wrap around the other fingers. Very critical when it comes to the use of the hand.

Pointer, points things out

This has the longest reach

Or- flipping the bird is obvious symbolism

This is the ring-finger, about commitment

The smallest one handles the details

A second possibility is that these may represent a number of something as man historically counts by them.


Apostle (can wrap around the other fingers. Very critical when it comes to the use of the hand).

Prophet (pointer, point’s things out).

Evangelist (this has the longest reach).

Pastor (this is the ring-finger, about commitment to a congregation or small group).

Teacher (the smallest one handles the details).


A matter of the heart

A matter of purity or cleansing

Ability to break something down and fully understand

Ability to withstand, perseverance

Life-giving substance, blood of Jesus


Concerning spiritual hindrance caused by emotional wounding.

Could represent a demonic attack in that literal area of the body.

Could represent God’s at work to heal something related to the symbolism of that body part.

If the dream is about the healing or removal of a part of your body that in reality is diseased, we strongly suggest this may not be literally about the healing of that disease, at least not until after the inner spiritual condition that could be described as a disease is healed by the dreamer’s persistence.

This symbolizes protection

If these come out, it indicates a flushing, a removal of what doesn’t belong.

Problem with processing information, that is understanding wisdom

Concerning a growing negative that needs to be fully cut out. Involves a habit.

Concerning a negative relating to life or death issues.

Could be referring to your speech since what we say has more power than we realize.

Relational issues

Something being cut out that doesn’t belong.

Something being fixed the hard way within a person’s attitudes and behaviors due to the person not taking care of it an easier way.

    I just now woke up from this dream. Now that I’m awake, I can only remember one scene of it.

    All I can remember now is getting out of an unknown car. I was with my dad (James Sr.), an long time friend ( James Robert Jr.), and I know one, but possibly two other males (I can’t recall who they were now, but I knew while dreaming. In real life, my knee joints have always been laxy, but for some reason in this dream, they were not working at all. They kept trying to become disjointed with each move I made. They would slide out of place and cause me to try to maneuver them bck into place.

    The males that were around me helped me stand, but with each move I made my knees became more laxy to the point I couldn’t move from where I was standing, and couldn’t walk. The males weren’t sure of what to do at all to help me.

    I suddenly began to reach out to the side to my dad; to the other side to the other person; and when I tried to move again, I reached behind me to my long time friend (I’ve known since elementary school).

    I yelled out “I need to go to the hospital, bc I can’t move”, and i knew that I needed knee replacements….IMMEDIATELY.

    I woke up at 2:25am

    My thoughts: I’ve allowed my prayer life to become disjointed, and it’s caused me to suffer and hinder my walk. I must replace reaching out to ppl to help me stand, with a renewed prayer life to hold me up.

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      Right on! I would suggest that your father represents your Heavenly Father. Interestingly, your long-time friend is also friends with your dad- a perfect set-up for this character to represent the Holy Spirit.

      I sense that the knees that don’t work at all now and need replacing reveal something blocking the effectiveness of your prayer life. You “can’t move” meaning “you can’t move God”. This insight would indicate the need to find what is hindering your prayers.

      Here’s one possibility: Bowing down to other things more than to God. Ezekiel 14:2-5 says “And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, ‘Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their hearts, and put before them that which causes them to stumble into iniquity. Should I let Myself be inquired of by them? Therefore speak to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God: ‘Everyone of the house of Israel who sets up his idols in his heart, and puts before him what causes him to stumble into iniquity, and then comes to the prophet, I the Lord will answer him who comes, according to the multitude of his idols, that I may seize the house of Israel by their heart, because they are all estranged from Me by their idols. ‘”

      Please get back to us on this. We’d love to see how the Lord is working in your life!

    Thank you for your response. Your response reminded me of a scene scene in another dream I’ve had in the past. My knees getting stuck and not being able to move caused me to remember a scene I a past dream of God showing me that I was going somewhere special, but I got stuck from moving bc of a pile of books. I couldn’t get past this pile. The books represent knowledge, and I’ve always been a sticker on *knowing*. The dream of my knees tell me that I’ve not been submitting to the purpose of prayer or to His way in prayer. It speaks to my strong will of knowing the answers to certain situations that God has been telling me that I will not be given all the answers to. I’ve prayed for God to *tell me what I want to know* instead of praying for wisdom and instruction in how to move forward in what I don’t know; just trust HIM.
    My pastor recently, a couple of Sundays ago, spoke a word that confirmed that I will not know all the answers, but I’m still to submit to instructions God has given.

    I acknowledge not submitting to to a specific situation in my life that I pause at for fear of rejection and hurt; yet he’s continued to speak the same thing to me about it. Siigghh….. Lol I’m publicly repenting, and submitting to His will and trusting Him for the outcome.

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      Enjoying getting to know you better. I can totally identify with having too many questions for God. Once I got a prophetic word that God couldn’t speak to me so easily because I had too many questions. While I was asking one question, He wanted to answer another, but I’d be expecting the answer to the one I asked. Got it. May you be blessed in your walk with the Lord.

    Last night I had a dream that there was a bulbous growth on my left forearm about the size of an egg. I noticed the lump grow before my eyes. I feel like there were more elements to the dream, but can’t remember them anymore.

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      It sounds like God is telling you that something which didn’t belong will be exposed for the purpose of removal. The right arm can mean an assistant (like a right arm man). Left arm is not that. Has to do with “Outstretched arm”- strength and might reaching out, or an extension of something.

  4. Profile photo of the joyful potter

    Hmmm, so the exposure and removal of a strength? Of mine, or someone else? Or something that symbolizes strength? Interesting …. I will have to be watching this one …..! Thank you!

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      Certainly not the removal of a strength. It’s something which didn’t belong will be exposed for the purpose of removal. I would expect this was spiritually INSIDE you (your arm figuratively). You didn’t realize it or didn’t realize something could be done about it. This is a good revelation of something that can be fixed like a curse or “growth” that can be removed or broken.

    Hi just in regards to hair – I had a dream where I was smiling at a friend but my hair was wrapped around my whole face so that only my eyes were exposed. The dream felt positive and I was smiling genuinely, but im wondering what that would mean to have my hair wrapped around my whole face?

  6. Profile photo of Karen

    This is one of many, many dreams over the past 14 months re a friend of mine who sometimes appears as himself, sometimes symbollically. He asks me to look “down there.” I say, “Are you seriously asking me to take a look?” He says yes, turns around, pulls his pants down, bends over, points to an area near his right groin. Rectal area is hairless, pale skin, small anus. I see maybe something like a rash or a bruise. (This friend has a strong calling on his life, doesn’t yet know the Lord but dreams indicate he will. Is this to do with repentance? Hairless, small anus???). Thx.

  7. Profile photo of Karen

    Re above dream and more context, another time i dreamed that the same friend had dreadlocks (which I know symbolize rebellion, which fits!) and was going to wash them but then asked me to cut them off for him. (I’ve been doing warfare intercession for him for these 14 months. Does that fit this dream?)

  8. Profile photo of jay

    Thank you that is helpful, yes I couldn’t understand it because it felt positive but I sometimes overthink things and started wondering why on earth my hair would be wrapped like that! At least it looked lovely and healthy in the dream lol! thanks!

  9. Profile photo of Karen

    Wow! Thank you for your responses to both those posts. That’s so encouraging to know that the Lord is giving me discernment, that my friend is truly called, and that my intercession does have power (which I knew but it’s wonderful to get confirmation of that from another godly source). I have been a dreamer for years but didn’t realize they were significant until a couple of years ago when I received the full baptism in the spirit, after ehich they have been literally poured out on me. Your website has been my main tool to learn about dreams, and the interpretation of the symbols has been so incredibly accurate to the actual situations and resonates with my spirit. Thank you so much for your ministry!

    Hi again,

    What is the significance of DNA in a dream? In this dream a man is angry with me as his son is sick and he is kind of blaming me for this. In the dream I suggest the man take his child home to rest but the man misunderstands and says “It’s too late, he’s got YOUR dna now” He also says “you cant just send someone home because you cant handle it!” implying that I just didn’t want to deal with it but in the dream I felt he was misunderstanding me. I was holding his son, and a colleague whom I am close to is present and just observing this but she does not say a word. I just felt misunderstood in this dream but the DNA thing stood out
    I don’t know if this is literal but I do know this man (not well) and I am wondering if the son is symbolic but not sure as he does have a son I get on well with.

    Thanks again

  11. Profile photo of jay

    Her name is Julie and Im quite close with her or have a good working relationship with her.

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      Again, you have to look at your situations to see if there is any connection. Looking at it without that benefit, I first would say it’s a good dream.

      It looks like the Accuser of the Brethren is up to trying to whip you around. I’d suggest that he has a scheme which is not working on you and he’s unhappy about giving it up. He can see it won’t work on you because the depth of your faith is to the core (DNA). (I factored in the friend and the son.)

  12. Profile photo of jay

    Thanks Lyn,
    So in this dream is the father symbolic of the accuser? and is this dream pointing out the strength of my faith? The night before I was praying about purpose and asking the lord to help me really understand mine, I also have established a close relationship with this particular child and was surprised to have this dream.

  13. Profile photo of jay

    Sorry yes they are familiar to me, I wrk with children and this particular child I’ve developed a really great relationship with, I’m not too familiar with the father we are polite with each other. The night before having this dream I felt very down just seeking The Lord for my true purpose and even considered changing my workplace so I could just be where I’m supposed to be using my giftings and just where The Lord wants me, so when I had this dream I was puzzled, I’ve never had issues with this father either

  14. Profile photo of jay

    Is this symbolic do you think?

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      I really suspect this all is symbolic including the child and father. The father represents Satan the accuser and the child, what he has hatched, that is his scheme against you. Why that particular father and son? Because, as you say, you have developed a relationship with the son. This dream would indicate that the scheme has “involved” you but not tricked you yet. That’s what I’m getting, anyway.

  15. Profile photo of jay

    Thanks for your thoughts, im still feeling a bit confused on this one, I had been thinking about my purpose and felt stressed with everything going on around me so considered changing my workplace – When the father in the dream said “you cant just send someone home because you cant handle it” For some reason that made me wonder if my giftings were in the right place but because of stress, pressure etc I wanted to just avoid everything and leave my current workplace. Because that is what I had been feeling before I received this dream.

  16. Profile photo of jay

    Hi Lyn, thanks for your help, no I work in a secular school. The main feelings I had in this dream was feeling misunderstood as I wanted the child to get better but the father interpreted this as me wanting to avoid or get rid of his son implying I could not handle this or didn’t want to deal with it.
    Ive been continually seeking the lord to help me be in the right place to serve my purpose.


  17. Profile photo of jay

    I should add that because I was feeling a bit downhearted over many things in my life I just felt like running away and hiding or just starting over new somewhere other than where I am currently.

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      Thank you for pressing in to find the true meaning and application of this dream. In reviewing your current situation, job, and prayers; and adding a likely application— we have taken a fresh look and it looks like our original comment was on track, but not as specific. I think unpacking this will be helpful.

      The dream seems to be direct answer from God to your prayers concerning your current inner struggle.

      a) the child is sick- represents your inner struggle and doubts about God’s love and faithfulness to you.

      b) the father would symbolize the author/originator of the doubts.

      c) since the father is speaking with condemnation( “It’s too late… you can’t just send someone home because you can’t handle it!”) — he ISN’T depicting God, (and the name meaning associated with Julie also supports that the father symbolizes Satan).

      d) “It’s too late, he’s got YOUR dna now”— this is Satan telling you that you can’t change your outlook now because it’s indelibly linked to you, that is, you’ve had it too long.

      e) You want to send the child home— the spirit within you wants to send Satan’s lies back to where they came from! GOOD!

      CONCLUSION— You are awesome and Satan is a liar! This doubt and negative perspective came to you from Satan and he is desperate to keep you from sending it back to hell, because he knows that when you regain your faith in God’s love for you, his schemes to kill steal and destroy in your life will be over. Discernment about yous job, etc. will be clarified after you have done this. BTY- we ALL find ourselves where you are from time to time; it’s just a matter of how long the seasons are.

    Someone I know (named Gabriel) and I were sitting at a kitchen table at I think was my mother’s house. The house was unknown but it was a family occasion and he was there with me. We were sitting in a chair together, and talking among family at the kitchen table. I felt my left hand fingers being inter mingled with his left hand fingers, and it felt soft and subtle, but right.

    I am usually nervous to display public affection bc I’m unsure if that’s what he’s comfortable doing, but this time he initiated his hand in mine so I received it and drew in.

    I placed my arm around his waist and leaned forward into him and gently spoke to him in his ear asking how the kids were. He responded by telling me they were not doing well bc of their behavior.
    I became concerned for him and the boys so I sat bck in my chair and he sat in the chair facing me and we grew deeper in conversation about the boys, and why they are going through some things. It ended up just being me and him at the kitchen table discussing his boys.

    I noticed his comfortable smile, and demeanour toward me was more engaged with me and his hair was grown into an afro as we continued to talk.

    He eventually began to look different, nothing bad, and still the same person, but more mature looking.

    I woke up….

  19. Profile photo of kiahjanea40

    I recognize that there are a couple of different categories I could’ve placed the above dream under, but I chose this one bc of how the hands, arms around the waist, and speaking in his ear stood out to me. My thoughts: There may be some kind of agreement or commitment that may come my way. It’ll be subtle. It will be something I am not normally accustomed to maybe in the work place or my life in general , but it will feel right by the Holy spirit , and I’ll be able to move in it with confidence.

    It seems as though it is something or a situation I will be engaged in as a means to growing deeper in relationship.

    …but theses are just my thoughts . I’m still praying .

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      You are on the right track. Gabriel on several occasions was entrusted to give important announcements including giving Mary the amazing news that she would be the mother of Jesus. So a person named Gabriel in a dream usually symbolizes a messenger of good news. His affections toward you symbolize God’s love and favor toward you. You will have to discern what the boys symbolize, but they are significant to your life and hindering something.

  20. Profile photo of jay

    Thank you that is very encouraging and helps a lot in being able to clarify this dream – I have been getting so many negative thoughts lately but I still trust and am keeping faith that the lord will bring me through it!
    Thank you so much!

    Hi Lynmarie – what would the belly signify? Not the internal organ of the stomach, but more the external belly. I know that rivers of living water (Holy Spirit) flow from there… Examples: 1) Dreamed I was wearing a full-length beautiful silk dress in peacock colors while serving at a banquet, and my belly was slightly plump. 2) Dreamed my friend G and I were at a mall and there was a wheeled table that we could get going very fast and then ride on, and he did that lying on his belly on a towel. Any ideas? Thanks!

  22. Profile photo of Karen

    Plump belly maybe healthy life in the Holy Spirit or some such thing?

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      Yes, you are right on with that. Also this can mean richness in spirit and having understanding. Be careful not to assume G is literal. More likely is that something you like very much and are involved with can be described this way… maybe even dream interpretation. I say that because you are in a mall indicating this is about so very many things (and we sure have lots of elements in dreams). Having fun, moving along quickly, possibly to “pick up” things. SMILES!

    Hi again,

    I just wondered what a red eye could symbolise? – In this part of the dream I am having a casual conversation with a friend and I notice that one of their eyes is red. it looks like they had either overslept or had a long sleep and just woken up. there were no negative feelings here, just me noticing their one red eye. They were telling me about how they had gotten told off by someone and I was giving them advice.

    Thank s 🙂

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      Funny- red eye is a term we use for a late night flight, and also we see those in straight-on flash pictures. But I’m thinking you mean red eye as if someone was crying, or hurt in the eye, or infected as with Pink Eye for instance. Or even tired eyes.

      Interesting that it’s only one eye, so that shows only half the perspective is hurt or tired or infected. Keep in mind that this is most likely about YOU. Look up the meaning of the friend’s name and see if that helps to make sense of it.

  24. Profile photo of Karen

    Hi – Thanks so much for the interpretations of the belly dreams. So basically, the belly would refer to just the flow of the Holy Spirit, and whatever the state of the belly would be the more detailed definer? If that makes sense… I love the interpretation of the belly on the table dream. 🙂 It brings to mind Proverbs 10:23, “Doing wickedness is like sport [fun] to a fool, and so is wisdom to a man of understanding.” Dreams are a big jigsaw puzzle, and I always loved doing those as a kid! God is so cool! I do wonder, though, if G might be literally himself in the dream, because in the dream I was doing the thing with the table first and then he “was willing” to try it also, and he does have some very vivid, detailed dreams…

  25. Profile photo of Karen

    One other belly dream (the night before the other two)… if you’ll bear with me (I SO appreciate your time on these, Lynmarie). I dreamed I saw a somwhat short guy and in the dream I was thinking he looked like Gomer Pyle and flashed on his face having a big nose like Gomer Pyle’s, then the face resolved into one with more defined features and I realized in the dream that he only looked like Gomer P. He was doubled over and I think was holding his hands to his belly. The colors were all grey tones. I looked up the meaning of the name Gomer and it apparently means “to finish or complete.” I am coming up on what I believe is the season of completion that the Lord has shown me regarding His prophetic destiny for my friend G and I, and I have had some prophetic words spoken over me about God giving me “double for my trouble” (I believe re years of stress, loss, and heartache). This dream was in the context of a couple of other dreams that night about Satan trying to threaten or discourage me, so Im thinking it may have a negative message. What do you think? Thank you, Lynmarie!!

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      If you are asking if this dream may have come from Satan, it could. One of the early units in the course may help you clarify. What’s not in the course, though, is that dreams FROM the dark-side do seem to come in packages. So if you think you had one dream from the dark-side on a particular night, the others that night are most likely from there also.

  26. Profile photo of Karen

    Hi – After I posted that last dream it occurred to me to see if Pyle had a meaning, and it refers to stakes or a stakemaker, with the origin being “javelin.” So I’m thinking this was about the enemy saying he completed his attacks on my anointing and the associated relationship (“hands” referring to relationship – G, and perhaps also my job), with his javelin (and there was a dream a while back about me being hunted by a hunter with a large hooked nose). But the interesting thing is that this person only LOOKED like Gomer Pyle – was a deception – so the plan was not accomplished. Also interesting is that the very next night the Lord gave me 2 dreams to show me HIS view of my anointing. Good to know about the cluster factor. Thanks for your thoughts. I’ll be quiet for a while now, I promise. 😉

  27. Profile photo of jay

    Hi and thank you for your help,

    The friends name means oak tree and it seemed that he had overslept or woken from a long sleep. So if this is about me does it mean I am getting a wrong or not a quite right perspective of something? It is interesting that he got told off and was telling me about in this recent dream, as earlier this year I had a similar dream about a unknown man being told off in a shoe store and after he came to me and I give him advice or my opinion. I feel the two dreams point to the same situation.

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      With the name meaning added and mention of the other dream and that it looks like YOU haven’t recently been told off; I would suggest that God may actually be talking to you about this person or another person that they symbolize… someone who has been unaware of something but has been told off. God may want you to pray for this person.

    ok, thanks, I cant recall any situation where I have been told off and in both dreams I am giving my opinion or advice. I have kept this person in prayer so will continue to do so. Just a question the first dream where I am with an unknown person and they have been told off and come to me was in July 2015, this more recent dream of a man telling me about how he was told off was this year – what is the significance of having two very similar dream themes over a period of time? Is this situation being emphasized or could this point to this dream being literal and happening soon?

    Thanks again

    I am standing in a schoolroom full of desks. Then some gentleman, resembling a pastor I listen to ,comes to me and acts like he going to talk to me but I can’t hear him. He is wearing a short gray wig. while he talks to me I am wearing all my clothes but as I touch my mouth I feel something. I put out my hands to only see blood. I turned around. I was only wearing white underwear. I noticed the left side of my mouth has been bleeding. I was covered with dried blood from neck down. they were students in classroom but none noticed I was naked or bleeding. I went into another room to hide to find a mirror and then tried wash off the blood.

      Off hand, I’d say God’s telling you that He is aware of your pain and is teaching you how to receive inner healing on this issue- this because of the schoolroom and dried blood. But a key question is, “Who does the pastor represent?” God himself, a pastor? Why false hair? Discerning that will help with the rest. Let me know what you think and I’ll help you put this together.

    Hi! I had two dreams, nearly back to back, that included symbols of both blood and money. In the first, my professor was doing Old Testament blood sacrifices. Her name means “foreign riches.” In the second one, my childrens’ Godfather brought me two large boxes of “feminine products.” (Maxi pads). He asked if they were mine since he found them in the back of a car. Apparently, I had previously stashed cash in the boxes and forgotten about it. He asked if the boxes were mine, and I went through them to retrieve the money. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Thank you! That is very encouraging. 🙂 That also goes along with what the Lord has been showing me, through circumstances and prompting. Blessings to you!

    Hi Lynmarie – Had a weird dream last night that I can get some of the meaning on but not completely. What would the chest represent? Dreamed I saw a cow and a man rolling downhill on a road that curved to the right and had trees on either side. The man’s torso was bare except for a wide band of white cloth and a wide band of black cloth. The sense was that these were some kind of bandages, but there was no obvious wound or blood or anything gross. I’m thinking this is a positive dream about healing and provision flowing easily now, but not sure, and what would a black band represent? Would appreciate any light you could shed on this. Thx!

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      Well, I’d say this may have to do with provision because of the cow. The chest has several possibilities. For one thing- it’s the core of our being, where our vital organs are housed. I see the bands as identity. Black and white next to each other may mean that the person sees things as either black or white. There are other possibilities as well, but is any of this making sense as you look at your life situations?

  33. Profile photo of Karen

    Hi Lynmarie – Your take on the chest and the bands makes total sense. My friend G is very much a black and white thinker, it’s a huge obstacle in his ability to understand the things of God. I’m hoping it’s something that would be mostly resolved if/when he receives the mind of Christ. Do you see the downhill as a negative thing in this dream? But it curves to the right… Any other ideas on the cow? The feeling in this dream was neutral and the colors were muted, like it was maybe evening. Not sure how to take this dream. Thanks for your thoughts.

  34. Profile photo of Karen

    I’m so sorry about your wrist! What a bummer! Everything you said above totally fits. G is doing a LOT of serious thinking and taking a new look at some of his entrenched views, and there is a major transition happening that started this week that will impact many areas of both my and G’s life, foremost of which is that it looks like I’m going to have to separate myself from him again for a time, as the Lord has made it clear He wants each of us to Himself for now. Thanks, as always, for your insight and wisdom.

    One question – does the cow symbolize mental processing because a cow chews its cud, like ruminating on something? Thx.

    Concerning knees and blood: What does it mean when you are in a fight with a man (can’t recall face), and during this fight he takes a razor blade and slashes both of your knees, you’re gushing blood, but shortly after they both heal, unscarred, and you win the fight and cause him to shed blood that doesn’t stop bleeding?

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      First, it’s vital that you remember that your battle is not with man, but with your spiritual enemy, the devil who prowls around seeking whom he is able to devour.

      The dream speaks of someone intimidating or humiliating you into doing something you wouldn’t otherwise choose to do. A mess has been created by your compromise.

      Thank God that you get revelation and put an end to it. Do you sense God speaking to you in this?

    Hello, Lynmarie. My friend, sister in Christ had a dream about us, she was observing in a dream only. A dream: I dreamed that I was at your home. Your(my) hair was very short, such as bare regrowth after cutting. Then I saw your husband, who ripped a cat, a very brutal beating, scraping its feet, smashing its head. Then stops, and the cat turned around and in man’s voice told: too much pain, I can’t suffer any longer.
    I understand, that dream has a serious message, but I can’t understand its fully. Please help me with interpretation. Maybe I can avoid something bad. Thank you very much.

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      Hello Lithuania. This dream is most likely about the dreamer.

      It looks like God is telling her that He knows she has been going through a lot lately, almost more than she can bare, and on a daily basis. He knows she feels trapped, overwhelmed, and in pain. The dream suggests that God is pruning her right now, and that the keys to exiting this season and seeing multiplication are to TRUST AND OBEY. God loves her as the Ultimate Father.

    Thank you very much, Lynmarie. I think your interpretation make sense. It is touching my heart. Only a couple of questions. When we are observers in a dream could be such a dream about us too? What does the cat mean in this dream? Thank you.

    Thank you very much Lynmarie. God bless you in your ministry and in the everyday life. Thank you:)

    Hi Lynmarie
    Had a dream last night and as usual it had several scenes. I’ll post the other part under a different element. I felt a milk let down in my left breast and when I looked down on it, milk was dripping. I felt excited because I was sure I was pregnant so I went into the bathroom to squeeze off the milk in the tab and as I squeezed the breast a dark liquid which was blackish/purple spatted out instead of milk. There was alot of that liquid flowing out of my breast.
    Any insight over this dream? It has really baffled me. Thanks

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      You have been pondering how to respond to a situation and feel as if you now have an approach. You fantasize what you’ll say and how effective it will be to change the situation. God is kindly informing you NOT to go with that approach, that the approach will worsen things. Wait on the leadership of the Lord. He will show you how to approach this. Boy, can I relate to this right now. Keep listening to God!

    My friend, Joseph and I were talking. (He and I are more like siblings than friends). Suddenly, he reached out, snatched my wrist into a tight grip, and held it. I decided to ignore him until he could behave more maturely. Then, he did the same thing with my other wrist. Even though I struggled, I couldn’t break his grip.
    I was telling him to cut it out when I woke up. I’d love your insights! Thank you!!

    I had this dream of a guy placing his head very affectionately on my shoulder in front of family members who were watching.I was a little shy but he was confident.

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      If the guy seemed FAMILIAR, then that’s good. He may symbolize the Holy Spirit and his authority in your life will be visible 1) to the Implementer of Blessings 2) possibly literally to your family.

    One of the things I’m praying for is faith and direction in my vocation. Money is tight and dwindling, my health can’t sustain a lot of work hours or stress, and the Lord has told me I am to be a writer. So, obviously I’m in need of discernment, trusting God has me. In Hebrew the meaning of the name Joseph is: May Jehovah add/give increase. Do you think they could be connected?

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      I think I ignored you. Tough month. Fighting powerful curses. Perhaps God has clarified your dream by now. I could do coffee if you want to minister to each other. Let me know when you have some options.

    Hi Sweetheart, may the Lord fill your heart with his goodness, hope and his joy.Praying for you and your family. May he breathe his peace over you:)

    Hi, hope all is well.
    My husband dreamed that I was looking through bills, and had one from ‘ABC Animal’. I had been charged but didn’t know why. I called the company to see who they were, was told they take small size “meat” from people. I asked if they’d taken my “meat” and they wouldn’t give me a clear answer. I told them I would have a test run and if I found out they had taken “meat” there would be issues. Husband says he believes the charge was around $17.

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      The meat can mean your body. By connecting this to your other dream, may I suggest that Satan may want to use an eating disorder to take you down. There is a cost. I will get back to you in a few hours to bring insight as to what God says the cost is. Please give me feedback as we are here and equipped by experience to help.

    I dreamed I was in a school environment & sitting on/bench at a table with 3 others-diverse youth. I was their peer & thin in weight than i am now. From table, I looked into hall and saw a heavier version of myself walking to bathroom. I was disappointed & sad. I looked again & saw an even fatter version (bigger than the first) walking towards bathroom. I looked insecure, uncomfortable & unattractive. My walk was odd, trying to adjust carrying fat. I was shocked& shocked to see an old denim outfit stretched to fit the bigger me. I hated what I saw.

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      In dreams, body size often speaks of the amount of prosperity of the soul, with thinness associated with a poor soul condition. In this dream, however, negative feelings are connected to excess weight, so in this case, the dream may be addressing fear of weight gain. I don’t know your background, but if so, this is a warning. These fears are a precursor to eating disorders. I have personal experience in this. Or could be from Satan. What do you think?

  48. Profile photo of Sonia

    Yes. Right on point. I have gained a lot of weight and my mind is always on not letting it get even more out of control.

    Do you have YouTube? Would love to hear your testimony…anyway, I know a lot is going on and that may not be where you’re lead. Thanks so much!

    Hi Lyn – G texted a dream re me, he’s wondering what it means, I want to get it right. “… I had a dream yesterday w/ you in it, on a throne w/a tiara. You had 3 faces left middle right & each time you spoke to me a different face did, & the liquid gown changed color too, white blue orange. You touched me, I fell on my knees worshipping. You kissed me & I liquified & you drew me into your mouth. You hugged me & we joined as one. What do you think that meant?” I had just 2 days before had a very serious phone conversation with him re how his behavior was doing harm to others. I’m thinking this is related to the dream. What are your thoughts on this dream? Thanks!

  50. Profile photo of Karen

    Your interpretation fits this dream and some other context. I felt it was about my authority to speak as God’s representative and that G finally “heard.” I think I do represent God in His fulness to G. The dream being about the Trinity also fits a dream i had about wearing an iridescent blue dress w/ a flowing train & a vision a minister/friend at the prophetic conf. had of someone in an iridescent blue gown that flowed like water & it being about the Glory of God & the train of His gown in the throne rm. I texted him our thoughts, no comment.

    Thanks for your help on this. Also, I ended up having to see him last nite, and God is working. He’s dealing with a major underlying issue, bitterness, thru a bk he got from a street miinistry, and is getting some freedom. I had confirming dreams last nite, one re me and “Joachim Phoenix” (“may Jehovah exalt, God ptepares,” and Phoenix being the bird that built its own funeral pyre and then rose from the ashes.) How cool is that! God is so gracious and merciful!

    Hello! I have a dream element request: what would lungs (and illnesses related to them) mean? Does it have to do with a person’s spirit?

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      Lungs have everything to do with the Spirit! The Spirit is symbolized by air and wind, also some times of water. Since the lungs take in air and process it, the lungs speak of hearing and understanding the voice of God. That should help you make sense of that dream. Blessings!

    Element request: What would skin symbolize? (A guy compliments me that my skin looks really good). THANKS!

    • Profile photo of Rev Lynmarie

      Good question! There are several possibilities. You’ve heard of thin- skinned or thick skinned? In these sayings, skin has to do with the amount of sensitivity to pain. So nice skin could have to do with your ability through the Spirit to avoid getting easily offended or upset. If you had another dream that night or if there is more dream context, the meaning may be adjusted.

  54. Profile photo of Karen

    Thanks so much, Lyn. What you said about the possible meaning fits exactly! The big issue the Lord is working on with me right now is growing a thicker skin in all kinds of ways, from opposition from other Christian leaders, to impossible personalities at work, to scoffing about my dreams, on and on. I seem to be getting it from all sides. I’m learning to just keep my own counsel and live solely out of the Lord as part of my preparation as a leader and a prophet. How encouraging to know the meaning of the dream!

    Just want to say ‘Thank You’…I’m reading other dreams and old submissions of my own. Just grateful. Hope all is well.
