W – Symbols (The meanings or the interpretation of most symbols in this dictionary are derived from the Bible)


A wagon in dreams and visions symbolizes a person with a pioneering ministry. It speaks of a person who is, in a spiritual sense, a courageous explorer and a discoverer just like our ancestors were. The church is actually far from being developed or matured. Because of the institutionalization of the church by Constantine and subsequently the Roman Catholic Church, spiritual growth and spiritual development in the body of Christ experienced a major setback.

Even today we can compare the church with the world of a few hundred years ago. God did a wonderful work through the reformers during the past few hundred years but we are very far from being the church or the bride that God planned for us to be. In this sense, spiritual pioneers today can absolutely be compared to the historical pioneers of the “wagon” days.

In a negative sense, a wagon symbolizes a very old ministry. This implies people still ministering and dealing with spiritual matters like the institutional church did in the old days. A lot of restoration has taken place in the church since then. We are supposed to move back and then beyond the condition of the church of Acts.


Isaiah 5:5

And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down.

Ezekiel 13:5

Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the Lord.

Job 2:23

Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in?

Psalm 80:12

Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her?

A wall in dreams and visions speaks of an obstacle that needs to be overcome. It speaks of restraint and/or restriction. The color, the size and other details of a wall in a dream or a vision will reveal more information about the relevant obstacles in a person’s life.

Ironically, even the western wall in Jerusalem is an obstacle the Jews need to overcome by accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior.

In another sense, a wall can symbolize protection by keeping the enemy out.

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


A warehouse in dreams and visions symbolizes a large church or congregation. This speaks of a church or a congregation that is able to support many people with their resources. They are usually capable of giving service to many people and even other denominations and churches because of the religious material and the vast resources that they have.


A wasp symbolizes a person who is harboring backstabbing thoughts against other people. When the wasps in the dream or vision are red it speaks of these thoughts being caused by conflict, hate, jealousy or dissension.

When the wasps are stinging people or a particular person in a dream or a vision, take note of the body parts and the location of the body parts (left or right) that has been affected. This will reveal more information about the area or aspects involved and the reasons that people want to hurt people or the specific person.

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


When you dream you look after or watch something or a person or people or a specific situation in dreams and visions, it speaks of praying for the specific person, people or situation. It speaks of intercession.


When we dream about water it symbolizes the results of an outpouring of the Holy Spirit and or financial blessings in our lives. Rain saturates the earth (ground) and (underground storage like lakes, fountains, and boreholes) and it gives the source of life to all plants and other living organisms that are enabling man and all other living organisms to live and to prosper. Water is, therefore, the primary source of life and blessings.

The spiritual realm depends on the outpouring of the Holy Spirit just as the natural realm depends on rain. It is the spiritual rain of the Holy Spirit that is the source of all spiritual life and spiritual blessings. Demons and unsaved people have no life in them and are spiritually dead. Unsaved people, however, do enjoy temporary financial blessings. They, however, lose even that when they die.

This is why water is the main and primary symbol for either financial blessings or spiritual blessings.

Water (Calm)

Psalm 107:29-30

29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

30 Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

Calm water speaks of the peace of God including a time of rest in terms of the provision (financial) and blessings (spiritual blessings) of God.

Water (Dirty or muddy)

John 10:10

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Dirty water symbolizes the presence of sin or spiritual impurities in terms of obtaining financial blessings. It speaks of an abundant financial provision through a wrong relationship.

See “Water (Fountain)”

Water (Hot or boiling)

2 Corinthians 6:2

…behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

Hot water in a container, reservoir or dam or tank or even in a kettle symbolizes the imminent outpouring of financial or spiritual blessings. It is the opposite of snow. Hot water suggests that God’s provision is immediately available to a person or people when they dream of hot water.

See “Snow” and “Water (Reservoir)”

Water (Sea)

The sea symbolizes the multitudes of people and the nations of the world. It also symbolizes the spirit of the world and the treasures of the world. The sea differs from freshwater in the sense that it is always moving and changing and impure. In this sense, it symbolizes the unsaved multitudes of the earth who are always moving and never resting or at peace or unholy. It is the opposite of the sea of glass at the throne of God. The world cannot provide rest and peace and stability in the lives of people.

Just like all the hidden treasures but also hidden dangers beneath the surface of the sea and beneath the waves, so is the world. There are many treasures but also many dangerous hidden in mankind and in the nations of the earth.

Water (Swimming pool)

Water in a swimming pool symbolizes the financial blessings of a family. Usually, in life, one household has one swimming pool or no swimming pool. In a spiritual sense, all families have a swimming pool and in some cases, even more, than one, that will reveal the financial condition of such a family. The size, the shape, and the structural condition of the swimming pool as well as the condition of the water reveal the condition of the financial situation of the specific family. Dirty water speaks of an impure method of obtaining financial blessings and a clean swimming pool a pure income or financial situation and so forth.

A swimming pool is also a place where people play and where they enjoy themselves. In a spiritual sense, people are enjoying themselves in the revelation power and the activities of the Holy Spirit. For this reason, a swimming pool also symbolizes the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the workings of the Holy Spirit.

In dreams and visions, a swimming pool can be quite different from a normal swimming pool. It can be long and narrow with dark water. It can be exceptionally deep or it can contain animals like frogs hiding or camouflaging themselves at the bottom of the pool in a dark or muddy or slimy area. All these different conditions and other symbols speak of the different conditions and aspects of our financial situations or spiritual situations or the situations in our lives regarding the gifts and the workings of the Holy Spirit.

In another sense, clean and pure water in a swimming pool symbolizes the revelation power or the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. This is all about our ability and our situations regarding our spiritual ability to receive inspiration from the Holy Spirit.

See “Waterfall” and “Waterfall (Dark or black water)”

Isaiah 48:18

O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea…

2 Samuel 22:5

When the waves of death compassed me, the floods of ungodly men made me afraid…

Waves symbolize positive or negative changes. If it is a positive change it speaks of a new move or a new flow of God. If it is negative it speaks of a new change resulting in a difficult time approaching. I once had a dream of a wave coming in toward the shore that was getting heavier and heavier until the water became like a “see-through” liquid lead. It also changed color and it became like liquid fire but still heavy as lead. I was watching it coming in and I knew that the wave had the ability to crush me. I kept out of its way and watched it slow down and break when it reached the shore.

Soon after this the circumstances in my life completely changed. Everything changed. I got a new job and I moved to another town. Our circumstances got more difficult by the day. I had to leave my family behind for a year so that the children could finish school. They followed me at the end of the year and even at the new job and new home we struggled a lot with all sorts of issues and difficult circumstances. It was really a very difficult time in my life as symbolized by the wave of change in the dream I had.

See “Waves (In dams)”

Waves (Dark)

2 Samuel 22:5

When the waves of death compassed me, the floods of ungodly men made me afraid…

A dark wave in dreams and visions symbolizes a negative change resulting in instability or wrong doctrines or teachings. This can be caused by people introducing new things or new directions in a church or congregation or in the life of a person or group of people, which causes instability or a negative impact on the people, the church or the local congregation.

See “Waves (On land)”


A wedding speaks of a covenant or an agreement or a commitment between two people. This can be taken literally but also spiritual.

The woman in such a dream sometimes represents the bride of Christ and the groom Christ Himself. In a more personal sense, the bride may speak of the condition of the local congregation pertaining to her preparation in her faith-walk with Christ. Not only the global church but also local congregations and even individuals need to pursue holiness and obedience to be transformed into a bride without stain or wrinkle or blemish and any of them can be symbolized by a wedding or by marriage in a dream or a vision.

In another sense, a wedding symbolizes a covenant or an agreement or a commitment or a contract between two parties in a matter other than a marriage. It speaks of a business agreement or any other agreement where two parties have to make commitments and agreements that will benefit both parties.

See “Marriage”


See “Spider” and “Spider (Web)” for a better understanding of this symbol.


The Son of God comes from the east (For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines right into the west; so also will the coming of the Son of man be). Christ, therefore, moves in a Westerly direction which will be a great blessing for the saints. The Bible also speaks of the Sun of righteousness rising in the east (But unto you that fear my Name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings…). Healing moves in a Westerly direction.

A destructive wind from the west (moving east) therefore speaks of another force moving into the opposite direction of the Son of God. This speaks of resistance. For this reason, a destructive wind from the west speaks of evil forces coming against the church, or a country or against God.

Apart from evil forces, there is also another negative element that comes from God from the East. A destructive wind coming from the east sometimes is the judgment wind of God. This is a terrible wind that dries up all blessings and provisions.


Whales have a never-ending desire to consume as much food as they can. It is impossible for a whale to be satisfied in this regard. Their continuous appetite usually deprives other fish of food. People with such an attitude are always discontent. They can never get enough. It sometimes speaks of a very dominant businessman who never ceases “consuming” all the financial gains and deals that he can, even if it means depriving others.

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

Whale (Black)

A black whale speaks of a person who never has enough money and is never satisfied with what he possesses.

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

See “Whale (White)”


See “Grain (Wheat)”


A wheelbarrow in dreams and visions symbolizes a person with the ability to help people or a person involved with the ministry of helps. It also speaks of a person to person ministry. Such a person removes weeds from relationships. It speaks of a weed-removing ministry and such a person is usually involved with marriage counseling.


A wheelchair in dreams and visions symbolizes a person who is spiritually passive. It speaks of such a person not using his legs to move in a spiritual sense. It speaks of such a person not willing to walk in authority or in faith. It might even be that such a person is theoretically equipped but failing to put in practice what he learned. It speaks of a person not moving into a position of power and authority.

A person in a wheelchair wearing a false beard speaks of such a person hiding behind some fake reason for not moving out in power and in authority.

See “Legs” and see “Beard (Fake)”

Wheelchair (Person rising out of it)

A person rising up from a wheelchair in a dream or a vision speaks of a person who moves into a position of spiritual authority.

In another sense, a person rising up from a wheelchair symbolizes a person whose previous ability or whose previous ministry which has been lying dormant, has been restored.


See “Colors in dreams and visions”


A Pastors wife symbolizes a church or a congregation.

In a natural sense, it refers to the wife of the person dreaming.


Isaiah 27:10

Yet the defenced city shall be desolate, and the habitation forsaken, and left like a wilderness: there shall the calf feed, and there shall he lie down, and consume the branches thereof.

A wilderness describes a place where humans have no presence. It is uninhabited or inhabited only by wild animals. It includes forests, jungles, deserts and so on. A wilderness in dreams and visions symbolizes a place without God and a place without God’s people.

See “Desert”


Acts 2:1-2

1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

Wind, in dreams and visions, symbolizes the active moving power of the Holy Spirit. The stronger the wind in a dream or visions the stronger the moving power of the Holy Spirit.

In a negative sense, wind symbolizes the active power of satan and his demons.


See “Wind pump”

Wind pump

1 Corinthians 14:15

What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.

Jude 1:2

But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.

A wind pump symbolizes a call to pray in tongues so that God can provide supernaturally. The wind speaks of the power of the Holy Spirit while the turning wheel and pump which transfer or pumps the water into a tank speaks of our efforts in terms of prayer. Water speaks of provision. In this case, God provides for us but we need to do our part by praying in tongues. There is, therefore, a little bit of effort needed from our side. The blessings and provisions that we receive in this case, are generated by the power of the Holy Spirit which is symbolized by the wing moving the wheel of the wind pump.


1 Samuel 15:23

For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

A witch in dreams and visions symbolizes evil forces of rebellion. It speaks of a dangerous and destructive force or situation involving people who speak strong or bitter or negative or rebellious words.

Rebellion is birthed out of bitterness. It is for this reason, that people are easily attracted to satanism and witchcraft where everybody involved treats each other with hate, bitterness, and envy. I have heard that witches often attack each other by putting spells and curses onto each other. In the ugly world of satanism and witchcraft, these people can wreak havoc in each other’s lives. These spells and curses have a devastating effect on them. They have willfully entered a world or a realm where they exposed themselves by opening a lot of doors for evil spirits to exploit. Demonic influences run rampant among these people.

Fortunately for Christians, and even unsaved people who are not involved in this realm or in these kinds of activities, witches and evil spirits cannot harm them at all. They would like you to believe that they can harm you by casting spells onto you or by cursing you but, I am pleased to say, these things have no effect on people outside their “jurisdiction”, as long as you know that and believe that.

The most common reason why we dream about witches is to be aware of their activities when it comes to them influencing other people to harm us. This is when we pray for them and instruct the evil forces behind them to stop their “maneuvers” in our lives and in the lives of other people.

We also dream of witches or see witches in visions specifically to pray for them or to deliver them from demonic oppression, especially when we are able to physically reach them. God loves them and He wants us to cast the demons out of them. He also wants us to deliver them through counseling by means of the word of God.


Matthew 10:16

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

Matthew 7:15

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Ezekiel 22:7

In thee have they set light by father and mother: in the midst of thee have they dealt by oppression with the stranger: in thee have they vexed the fatherless and the widow.

A wolf in dreams and visions often symbolizes a person with the character or attitude of a Pharisee. These people are false, hypocritical and evil. They are evil because they can cause a great deal of harm in the church of Christ. They are like wolfs among sheep. Sometimes they hide among the sheep pretending to be a sheep. God sometimes exposes the nature of such a person in churches and congregations in a dream.

In another sense, a wolf symbolizes a person who sees himself as a prophet but who is actually like a Pharisee. Some of them are part of the church for financial or other benefits and they do not care about hurting the sheep. Some of them will lead the sheep astray because they do not really care about the well-being of the “sheep” of God. Some will even cause disunity. They are only there for their own benefit, they are greedy and they do not care about being a bad influence on a congregation.

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


A woman in dreams and visions symbolizes the church or a congregation or a female person, usually the person in the dream or the vision.

Pastors dreaming of their wives speak of them dreaming of the congregations that they pastor.

Take note of the conditions of the women, the clothes they wear and the different acts and attitudes of such women when you dream about them or when you see them in visions. All these details will reveal more information about the spiritual conditions of churches and congregations or even about the woman themselves if they represent themselves in the dream or vision.

Woman (Black)

A black woman in dreams and visions symbolizes a church or a congregation who is false, promiscuous or negative or unrighteous. It speaks of the members of such church being filled with unbelief or depression or being involved in harlots unfaithful behavior by seeking or pursuing other religious ways and methods in acquiring salvation.

Of course, the black woman in the dream may be literal and therefore not representing somebody else or something else.

Woman (Brown or Hispanic or Asian or Indian)

The different colors of different people in dreams and visions are very significant. Each color and each gradation of skin color in a dream or a vision changes the meaning of the dream. In this sense, the woman’s color changes the condition of the church or congregation. It has nothing to do with race. It has everything to do with color. The condition of the church or congregation is determined by the skin color of the woman but also by the clothes they wear. Take note of the following gradation of skin colors of women in dreams and visions: Black, black-brown, black-red, brown, brown-yellow, copper-red, light brown, dark brown, white, yellow, etc. The different gradations symbolize a mixture of the colors it represents.

See “Colors in dreams and visions” for a better understanding of this symbol.

In this sense, a woman with brown skin with a yellow undertone, in dreams and visions, symbolizes a congregation which harbors people who are full of selfish ambitions or fleshly desires or strife and sin (brown) and hatred or jealousy or blasphemy (yellow). Check the meanings of the different colors in this dictionary and apply this principle when interpreting the meanings of dreams and visions.

Woman (White)

A white woman in dreams and visions symbolizes a church or congregation who is true, pure, righteous and faithful to Christ.

In another sense, the woman may be literal and not representing something else or someone else.

Woman (Pregnant)

A vision of a pregnant woman can be literal or spiritual. If literal, the woman will become pregnant with a baby. If spiritual, a new ministry is about to be birthed.


Trees symbolize people. Wood symbolizes spiritually dead people who were formed and shaped in a spiritual sense to be whatever the shape or condition of the wood represents. Wood is produced after a tree was hewed down. This speaks of spiritual death.

A friend of mine had a dream explaining this symbol. This is just a short excerpt from that dream: …I eventually entered a wood manufacturer (almost like a sawmill) on my way home but I turned around. I found myself in the mud with both my legs and one hand full of mud. I then moved forward and saw water in front of me. I washed the mud from my hands and feet. The next moment I saw a pit full of wood and mud and all sorts of weeds all mingled together. A strong wind blew me slowly but surely into the pit. I just could not fight or resist this wind. It was too strong for me. I knew that I should not fall into that dreadful pit. Just before I fell into this pit I called out to God to help me. I then saw a stone which looked like a loaf of bread broke into two pieces which supernaturally prevented me from falling into the pit.

This dream was a warning. The world or the spirit of the world is the sawmill which manufacturers dead trees (spiritually dead people) (wood). Mud represents sin and muddy legs represent a person walking in sin (wrong relationships). Muddy hands represent a person organizing or arranging a life of sin. Moving forward symbolizes spiritual progress. That is why water was found. Water represents the Holy Spirit or spiritual blessings. Christians are all born of the Spirit of God. Washing off the mud represents washing away sins. The pit represents hell. The wood speaks of spiritually dead people. The weeds are sins and unrighteousness in people’s lives. Mud represents sins and wrong relationships. The wind represents the active and evil power of the devil. The stone symbolizes the rock of Christ but also the bread of life because of its appearance as a loaf of bread. It was broken symbolizing the death of Christ which ensured salvation for us. That is why the breaking of the bread/rock supernaturally prevented my friend from falling into the pit of hell. He washed away his sins and unrighteousness and he called onto God to save him.

  1. Hi there,
    Please take note that black women are not bad and evil at all. This has nothing to do with race but everything to do with the color black. It is all about the meanings of colors in dreams.
    Please see the comments at the bottom of the “M – Symbols” page. There you will find an extensive explanation of this aspect of dreams and visions.
