When we receive a packet from a person in dreams it speaks of more than a message. In dreams and visions, a message is symbolized by a letter.

A packet in dreams and visions symbolizes a gift, good or bad. We receive good gifts from God and good people and bad gifts from the devil and bad people. It is important to check the meanings of other symbols in the dream or vision for a better understanding of the particular gift that we received or about to receive.


A person wearing pajamas in dreams and visions symbolizes that a person or a group of people are spiritually not ready for ministry. It speaks of that person spiritually not prepared for ministry because of that person being inactive for some reason.

A path or a road in dreams and visions symbolizes life’s journey. In most cases, the road or the path speaks of a specific situation or a specific aspect in terms of the different journeys that we take in life. However, sometimes it does speak of the complete journey of life. It all depends on what you prayed about or what the subject of the specific dream was.

Unlike “roads”, which represents a broader or general aspect of our journeys in life, a small “path” speaks of a more specific or personal aspect in our lives.

See “Street” and “Roads” for a better understanding of this symbol.


1 Samuel 17:37

Leviticus 11:26

The carcases of every beast which divideth the hoof, and is not clovenfooted, nor cheweth the cud, are unclean unto you: every one that toucheth them shall be unclean.

Peace offering

And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

Revelation 21:21

And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

A pearl in dreams and visions symbolizes God’s truths. The word of God, when we understand and accept it in our hearts and in our spirits, has tremendous potential and it is extremely powerful and valuable. It completely changes our lives. Therefore, a pearl in dreams and visions symbolizes truths and spiritual riches. These truths take possession of our spirits in a gradual way. It slowly becomes part of us and of our lives, layer for layer, until it becomes or develops into a hard and strong “precious stone”.

Colossians 3:16

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

A writing pen is used to write things down. We actually record things so that we do not forget it. A pen in dreams and visions, therefore, symbolizes us pondering on past events and past incidents. The color of the pen will reveal more detail on the nature of the things we are pondering on.

Pen (Catching fire while someone writes with it)

A pen catching fire while writing with it speaks of the anointing of God on a person to write books or something similar. It is a request from God to write a spiritual book or to record things under the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

Pen (Red)

A red pen speaks of a person who tends to remember past conflicts, problems, bad experiences, and disasters.

Pen (White)

A pencil speaks of a person who only remembers good testimonies on a short-term basis. Such people are like the Israelites in the desert who, after they left Egypt, continuously and quickly forgot what God has done for them.

In a positive sense, it speaks of a person who quickly discards and removes negative occurrences or reports from his mind. Such a person does not bring up bad things of the past.


Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Penguin males sit on an egg and wait for it to incubate for up to 68 days. They sit their continuously in the cold without being relieved and without eating anything. Even after the female returns from the sea, the male has to feed the chick although he has not eaten for months. Penguin males really suffer to incubate and raise a penguin chick.

A penguin in dreams and visions, therefore, symbolizes a person who relies on personal martyrdom by denying themselves a lot of things to achieve justification instead of relying on the blood of Jesus Christ through faith and through grace.

See “Animals” and “Creatures (Of the sea)” for a better understanding of this symbol.


Perfume symbolizes a person who is pleasing God with his life. This indicates that this person’s life is a sweet and wonderful fragrance to God.

Medicine in dreams and visions symbolizes the word of God that has the ability to cause or to ensure healing in a physical sense or in a spiritual sense. People need healing in their bodies but they also need mental healing as well as emotional healing. Medicine is, therefore, powerful words regarding divine healing. Medicine is not food but it is still a substance that is taken in by the mouth and absorbed in our digestive system. In this sense, “medicine”, in dreams and visions, are special words of healing (word of God), prepared for a specific person for a specific substandard condition (sickness, disease, mental condition or emotional condition).

A pharmacy in dreams and visions symbolizes a spiritual place where medicine can be obtained.

A meaning of a photo is very similar to the meaning of a photo album but it reflects a person’s identity or true reflection in terms of a specific aspect and not in terms of his whole life.

See “Photo album” and “Old (Movie)”

Photo album

A photo album symbolizes the true identity of a person. The fact that it is not only one photo but a whole album of photos, especially when you dream of baby photos of a grown person, it speaks of exposing or reflecting the true identity of such a person. It tells you from where this person comes from and who and what he is.

A woman I know once had a dream of a specific person. This person was a stranger to her. In the dream, she was concerned about the person’s character. She then dreamed that this person “currently” sleeps in a tent and that there are two baby photo albums, of this person, on the floor of the tent underneath his clothes and private belongings. Underneath private belongings suggests that he covers or hides his true identity. In the dream, she knew that she needed to check out these photo albums before she gets involved with this person. The significance of two albums symbolizes the fact that she must do a double check on this person. This was a warning not to be hasty getting involved with this person but to be cautious and to check him out thoroughly. This probably suggested that there was something wrong with this person.

See “Old (Movie)”

Pick (Garden)

2 Peter 2:22

But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

A pig symbolizes a person (Christian) who is backsliding. When a person who was once cleansed from unrighteousness, sin and other fleshly desires, returns to his previous ways, he is like a pig who returns to wallowing in the mire. Domestic pigs, like domestic dogs, symbolize a Christian that is backsliding. It does not speak of unsaved people.

1 Timothy 3:15

But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

Galatians 2:9

And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.

Revelation 3:12

Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

A pillar in dreams and visions symbolizes a person who is very reliable in a certain situation or in a church or in a work situation. It speaks of spiritual strength, firmness, and support. When you dream of a building falling apart because of weak pillars, it speaks of prominent people (leaders) not spiritually mature or in a natural sense, not mentally mature or qualified (weak and unable to support the group of people in the work situation). In such cases, the leaders cannot take up their responsibilities effectively and the organization or business or ministry suffers in the process.

Take note of the conditions of pillars in dreams (colors, structural damage, weak, strong, etc.). It tells you more about the spiritual or natural conditions of the leaders or people in a ministry, business or organization.

Lamentations 4:2

The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold, how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter!

Judges 7:16-20

16 And he divided the three hundred men into three companies, and he put a trumpet in every man’s hand, with empty pitchers, and lamps within the pitchers.

17 And he said unto them, Look on me, and do likewise: and, behold, when I come to the outside of the camp, it shall be that, as I do, so shall ye do.

18 When I blow with a trumpet, I and all that are with me, then blow ye the trumpets also on every side of all the camp, and say, The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon.

19 So Gideon, and the hundred men that were with him, came unto the outside of the camp in the beginning of the middle watch; and they had but newly set the watch: and they blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers that were in their hands.

2 Corinthians 3:2-11

2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:

3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:

5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:

8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?

9 For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.

10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.

11 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.

A pitcher in dreams and visions symbolizes a vessel of excellence in the hands of God or a vessel of destruction in the hands of the enemy. It speaks of people allowing their physical bodies to be used for good or for evil by either God or evil spirits. More information regarding the pitcher (color, size, substance made of, substance filled with) will reveal more information about the specific person or congregation or church. Whatever is in the pitcher will also tell how the specific person is used by God or by evil spirits.


See “Vehicles (Aircraft)”


Luke 11:39

And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.

Matthew 23:25-26

25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

A platter in dreams and visions symbolizes hypocrisy and “externalism”. It speaks of excessive regard for outward form in religion.


Jeremiah 4:3

For thus saith the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns.

Job 4:8

Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.

Proverbs 20:4

The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.

1 Corinthians 9:10

Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.

Hosea 10:13

Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men.

A plow in dreams and visions symbolizes the preparation of people’s hearts for the gospel of Christ. It speaks of breaking open tough hearts (the hard ground) so that it can receive the word of God (the seed). It is about spiritual preparation to make ready for sowing.

In a negative sense, a plow symbolizes the breaking open of hearts in a bad way to be ready for bad seed (lies). This speaks of people who did not make a decision for Christ yet nor for evil but who are suddenly willing and prepared to go from “bad” to worse.


Psalm 140:3

They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders’ poison is under their lips. Selah.

Deuteronomy 32:33

Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.

Job 20:16

He shall suck the poison of asps: the viper’s tongue shall slay him.

Psalm 58:4

Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear.

Romans 3:13

Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips.

James 3:8

But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

In dreams and visions, anything that we put in our mouths to eat is words. Poison is, therefore, a symbol of evil teachings. Whenever the Bible refers to the poison of people it speaks of their lies and deceit. Just as poison kills a person, so evil teachings also leads to spiritual death when a person accepts those evil teachings in his spiritual belly and digestive system.

When you dream of a person eating or drinking poison it speaks of that person killing himself spiritually because of evil teachings. Even Spirit-filled teachers in the body of Christ might have a little bit of poison among some very good teaching material or in their personal libraries. Watch out for this. I once went through the teaching material of a well known Spirit-filled teacher. Some of the materials were just awesome but a few things raised some concerns in my heart. I asked the Lord about those teachings and He confirmed in a dream that those doctrines were indeed poisonous. He showed me the poison among the good food that the person usually offers people.

In a positive sense, the word of God is also poisonous to evil spirits, specifically referring to the toxic thoughts that they instigate. When we dream we apply poison to little insects or birds it speaks of us applying the word of God to the negative thoughts by replacing it with the true and authentic word of God. The true word acts as a poison by killing toxic thoughts. See “Insects” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Whenever you dream that you are applying poison to vicious little animals like crocodiles and other symbolically evil animals (which represent evil activities and influences), the Holy Spirit is actually motivating you to apply the word of God in the specific situation or the specific evil attack on your life. We chase these evil spirits away by applying the word of God. However, this has nothing to do with the traditional spiritual warfare against evil. See “Snake” for a better understanding of this symbol and the strategy that you should utilize to fend off evil attacks. We only speak to evil spirits directly when we cast out demons or when we chase demons away from a person or in a specific situation.

See “Food” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Police (Prosecutors)

Policemen and other law enforcement occupations symbolize authority in the church. It symbolizes the need to adhere to the will of God and the principles that govern the kingdom of God. Policemen and other law enforcement occupations in dreams and visions are usually a call for repentance and obedience. It speaks of us doing the right thing. We should know the will of God and we should carry out the will of God.

In a negative sense, policemen and other law enforcement occupations in dreams and visions symbolize legalism in the church. Those are the people who are constantly applying Old Testament truths to the Church of Christ. These people constantly check out people and congregations. They scrutinize their teachings, their behavior and the way they live out their faith. They teach false things and they influence the church in a negative way. They actually cause the church to be disobedient.

They constantly attempt to get people or congregations to return back to their Hebrew roots and to Judaism. They are no different from the Pharisees. They bring back things like the Old Testament feasts, the Sabbath, the Old Testament Names of God, etc. Policeman and prosecutors symbolize people with the same attitude as the Pharisees.


See “Letterbox”


A postmortem in dreams and visions symbolizes a situation where old spiritual or financial debts are re-investigated or analyzed. This happens quite a lot in financial institutions, politics as well as spiritual matters.

6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

Lamentations 4:2

The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold, how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter!

Revelation 2:27

And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

Isaiah 29:16

Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

A potter in dreams and visions symbolizes God with the focus on the works that He has done. It speaks of his creativity.


Luke 19:13-26

13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.

15 And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.

16 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.

17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.

18 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.

19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.

20 And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:

21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.

22 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:

23 Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?

24 And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.

25 (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

26 For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.

A pound (lb) in dreams and visions symbolizes responsibility and accountability. A “mina” or a pound in this context refers to weight. It is not about money. Those who possessed or controlled more weight had more responsibility and more accountability.

Praying mantis

Galatians 5:15

But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

A praying mantis symbolizes a person with irritating thoughts or arguments or criticism toward or directed to other people. The true nature of a praying mantis is to kill and to devour members of its own species. This speaks of a person who feels nothing for other people.

See “Animals” and “creatures (Of the air)” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Pregnant woman

Galatians 4:19

My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you.

A pregnant woman speaks of a person preparing to give birth to a new ministry. It also speaks of a person’s labor for a specific situation or for the spiritual well being of people, like Paul’s labor for the Galatians in the Scripture above. It speaks about the “process” of bringing something new into existence (nine months of being pregnant and accommodating the growth and the development of the baby in the womb).


A preschool symbolizes the teaching and equipping of brand new Christians.


1 Corinthians 6:20

For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Proverbs 31:10

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

Isaiah 55:1

Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

Matthew 13:46

Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

Matthew 27:6,9

6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.

9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value.

1 Peter 3:4

But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.

Price (like clothes and other items with price tags) in dreams and visions symbolizes value or worth. It speaks of the items in the dream or vision being valuable in a spiritual sense. It means that we need to regard such items valuable. Pay attention to the specific price on the different items in dreams and visions. It might reveal more information about the value of the specific item.

1 Peter 3:19

By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison.

Psalm 142:7

Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.

Isaiah 61:1

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.

Revelation 20:7

And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison.

Psalm 102:20

To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death.

A prison in dreams and visions symbolizes bondage or slavery. It speaks of people who lost their spiritual freedom by becoming a slave to sin or to people who control them or to demonic spirits who control them. When we live in sin and when we are controlled by sin we are in bondage and then we are slaves. It is symbolized by being in prison but it can also be symbolized by bars and chains and ropes.

A prison is sometimes represented by just the prison “bars” or sometimes “chains” bolted onto the floor but it has the same meaning.

See “Prisoner”

Pull (Invisible person)

When you dream a person (sometimes invisible) pulls you ahead whilst you are running (in sports like running, athletics and rugby, etc.) it speaks of God assisting you and helping you to achieve better results. He assists us so that we can perform better in spiritual things. See “Push”


See “Colors in dreams and visions”


A purse in dreams and visions symbolizes the spiritual treasures of the kingdom of God pertaining to the maintaining of our spiritual well-being. The purse usually contains only the spiritual treasures that we accepted and received. There are sometimes spiritual treasures that we do not accept and receive because of disobedience and a lack of faith.

Purses in dreams and visions usually contain a wallet with money, which is the word of God. See “Money” for a better understanding of this symbol. It also contains those things and those little gadgets that we value most to look after ourselves. Things like lipstick, a nail set, tissues, etc.

See “Lipstick” and “Lips” and “Eye shadow” for a better understanding of this symbol.

Puss (Boils)

See “Boils”


See “Snake (Python)”
