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.
These elements may 1) symbolize one concept, 2) carry a variety of meanings to choose from depending on the context of the dream, 3) hold personal meaning to you, or 4) on occasion, be literal.
Anatomy elements in dreams are categorized on this page as follows. Click the category to view its entries at the top of the page.
GENERAL ANATOMY SYMBOLISM
Relating to faith
Position of authority just under someone as in right hand man or Jesus at the right of the Father
By natural gifting
Note that the left side of a car is the driver’s side
Possibly relating to analytical thinking
Concerning weight issues
2. Concerning something at the TOP
3. A floating head speaking= a “talking head,”- of no concern
The negative interpretation is related to stubbornness and obstinacy.
A positive interpretation may include perseverance and risk-taking.
Concerning speaking life through faith
Concerning your speech
Concerning sustenance or maintenance
Personal information may be kept in these babies! So this may be concerning relationship protection
Concerning the past
An outstretched arm may symbolize strength and might in reaching out
Or an arm my symbolize an extension of something
If the right arm, it can refer to a person who is the “right arm” of someone
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 retaining uprightness and possibly balance.
A large one indicates there is not enough of a particular activity.
I once dreamed I was patted on the behind, for instance, 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).
One possible implication associated with a large one is that the person KNOWS what he or she should be doing, but isn’t doing it.
Regarding a person’s submission or independence
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.
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.
If something is at your feet, it’s very near, and you may have authority over it.
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
A person’s presence (as in the face of God)
A person’s reputation
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.
Eyebrows in dreams most likely are speaking to one of those concepts rather than both.
A UNIBROW most likely has to do with the first, indicating “full protection” from sweat getting into the eyes. Dreams of unibrows may be telling the dreamer not to sweat it, not to fret… “don’t let weariness or fear cloud your sight; look to Jesus instead!”
Or a significant pruning of that person for their good from God
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 (or wears one infrequently, or used to wear one), and the dreamer is always checking to make it’s positioned so you can’t tell it’s a wig, this means the dreamer is focusing on how she looks.
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.
If another’s eyes, their character of them may serve as a window to the condition of the soul (what’s going on inside).
Maybe someone is leading you on, just giving you “lip service”?
Or- flipping the bird is obvious symbolism
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).
Ability to withstand, perseverance
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.
Could be referring to your speech since what we say has more power than we realize.
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.
