Each body part has its significance in a dream. We will be using the natural principle of these body parts to derive their spiritual meaning. It is important to understand the physical aspects of each body part, and their significance in the natural world or waking life, to avoid over-spiritualization of the same.

Dreams About Body Parts

God uses physical objects to communicate His Will and hence, it is important to understand their meaning.

Biblical Meaning of Dreaming of Breasts

Your breasts symbolize the fountain of life, nurturing, sensitivity, and the center of beauty and pleasure. From the natural principle, a woman’s breasts tend to be extremely sensitive to touch.


They are also a great source of attraction to men. The milk they produce is used for breastfeeding, acting as a source of nourishment at infancy, hence a fountain of life.

Proverbs 5:19
Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love.
Isaiah 60:16a
You shall suck the milk of nations; you shall nurse at the breast of kings; and you shall know that I, the Lord, am your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob. Seeing a man's private parts in a dream.

Biblical Meaning of Dreaming of a Penis

Dreaming of a penis symbolize authority, dominion, potential, productivity, and a man’s sensitivity. An erect penis symbolizes dominion and authority. A man’s private parts carry the potential to produce through his seed.

This is the most sensitive organ in a man’s body, hence reflecting on the man’s sensitivity to his dominion in terms of his gender. That is why men hate to be belittled by the opposite sex.

Psalms 127:4-5
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
Deuteronomy 25:11-12
When men fight with one another and the wife of the one draws near to rescue her husband from the hand of him who is beating him and puts out her hand and seizes him by the private parts, then you shall cut off her hand. Your eye shall have no pity.

Dreaming of a woman’s vagina

The woman’s sexual organ symbolizes productivity, sensitivity, and purity, especially if she is a virgin. It can also symbolize seduction, as many men will be willing to lose their way to enjoy the pleasures of this beautiful flower. Hence, the vagina in that case will symbolize a woman who seduces men with her beauty to get what she wants.

Seeing heels in a dream

Your heels symbolize an entry to the soul through your feet. They may not look significant on your feet, but it is one of the spots through which the enemy attacks you, especially through a snake bite in a dream.

The heel also represents a man’s authority to withstand his enemies. God placed enmity between the serpent and man, and as a consequence, the man shall crush the serpent’s head, while the snake shall strike his heel.

Genesis 3:15
I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.

Dreaming about legs

Your legs in a dream symbolize stability and strength. Naturally, we use our legs to support ourselves, to stand, to walk, run, and almost every body movement relies on our legs. While fighting, we use our legs to stand our ground.

Biblical Meaning of Dreaming of Hands

Your hands in a dream symbolize productivity and good work. The Bible declares that God will bless the works of your hands. God created man with His hands, hence requiring us to work with our hands.

The hand also represents your ability to create wealth and possess riches. The hand can also symbolize God’s judgment. (Daniel 5:5).


Dreaming of fingers

Your fingers in a dream symbolize your creativity and strength. We use our fingers to write down our plans, and our ideas. God used His fingers to create man, representing His creative work in creation.

Psalms 8:3
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place…
Psalms 144:1
Blessed be the LORD, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle…

Dreaming of your back

Your backbone symbolizes stability. Without a backbone, you cannot stand, walk or sit. It supports your head and the entire body.

Dreaming of a paralyzed back is a sign of an attack on your stability. This can be in the form of a disease that renders you incapacitated.

Dreaming of Eyes: Biblical Meaning

The Bible teaches that the eye is the lamp of the body. Your eyes are one of the doors to your soul. What you see has the potential to affect your perception and concept.

That is why it is important to guard your eyes or simply what you see and watch, lest it defiles your soul and mind.

Dreaming you are blind symbolizes ignorance. Your eyes represent your vision, purpose, and goals in life.

Matthew 6:22-23
The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!

Seeing a neck in a dream

The neck in a dream symbolizes stability and strength. It supports the head, where your vision, plans, perception, authority, and wisdom reside. In a marriage relationship, a woman is likened to the neck which supports the head. She provides support, strength, encouragement, and wisdom to her husband.

Dreaming of a stomach

The stomach in a dream symbolizes your desires. Depending on its size, the stomach can symbolize a hindrance to spiritual growth. Your desires can become your god (idol). It can also represent greed and uncontrolled lust. The Bible mentions people who have made the stomach their idol, due to their greed and lust.

Philippians 3:19
Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things.

Biblical Meaning of Dreaming of a Mouth

The mouth in a dream symbolizes the power to create. God created the universe by the word of His mouth. The Bible declares that the mouth holds the power of life and death. With it, you can bless God or curse men. (James 3:9-10).

The mouth has nothing to do with what you consume. Jesus himself said that whatever a man eats is excreted, but what comes out of the mouth is what defiles a man. (Matthew 15:10-20). Meaning, that the mouth speaks out the content, deposit, and intentions of the heart. That is why it is very powerful.

Proverbs 18:21
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.
Matthew 12:36-37
I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words, you will be condemned.

If you are a person who loves gossip and you dreamt of a mouth, then this is a warning that your mouth will put you in trouble and destroy relationships.


If you are quick to anger, the dream warns you to be careful with what you say when angry. You cannot take back your words once spoken. You need to train yourself to be patient and put zip on your lips.

Dreaming of a Tongue: Biblical Meaning

The tongue in a dream symbolizes great evil and a fire that cannot be quenched. The Bible declares the tongue to be the most powerful part of the body. It is capable of great calamities. The tongue can wound relationships beyond repair, and wreck marriages and families.

James 3:5-6
So also, the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire! And the tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness. The tongue is set among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the entire course of life, and set on fire by hell.
