Definition For:

In interpreting a cage in an internal dream, I would not see a positive connotation to it unless your enemies were in that cage! In dreaming that you are in a cage or being held captive, it would represent your lack of freedom.

This would indicate that you are bound either by your circumstance, by your past or by some kind of oppression. The enemy keeps you in bondage while the Lord gives freedom. The mind can often be a cage in that it restricts you. Your analytical mind could be stopping your progress. A cage also represents fear, which could indicate your being bound by a fear of the past that has been exposed again in your life.

In personal experience I have seen people in cages and the Lord has told me that they have put themselves in the cage. One such case was a woman who had a fear of opening herself up to the Lord. I saw her in a cage and the Lord being able to only pass small objects through it to her. The interpretation was that because she had closed off her heart to the Lord out of fear, He could only give her small blessings because of the restriction she had put on herself.

Definition For:

I could not find a positive connotation for a cage in scripture either. A cage in an external dream or vision speaks of the deceit and devices of the enemy. It is a warning of a trap that has been set, or it is a word of knowledge that the person you are ministering to is in bondage.

Jeremiah 5:26 "For among my people are found wicked [men]: they lay wait, as he that sets snares; they set a trap, they catch men.
27 As a cage is full of birds, so [are] their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and become rich." (GMR)

It is a place of evil and a place where the enemy and his evil works abound.

Revelation 18:2 "…and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird." (GMR)

Definition For:

A cake speaks of fun, enjoyment and blessing. It speaks of receiving a gift and something that is enjoyable. I remember once dreaming of walking into my home and my father had bought me a whole load of different cakes and bread from a bakery. I can smell them now just thinking about it! It was a good dream and it spoke of the blessings and the gifts the Lord was giving me.

The different types of cakes, spoke of the different ways I would minister and the different blessings the Lord would give me. Not long after this dream the Lord moved me into the teaching ministry, where as before I was flowing in the prophetic.

“To have your cake and eat it” is a negative saying that means you being selfish and are trying to impose yourself and also be one better above your fellow brother or sister. This speaks of strife, contention and vainglory. Dreaming of a cake that is not fully baked, speaks of being ‘half-baked’ meaning that your commitment is lacking.

Philippians 2:3 "[Let] nothing [be done] through strife or empty boasting (vainglory); but in lowliness of mind let each consider others better than themselves." (GMR)

Definition For:

Cake in a vision or external dream speaks of provision. In the case of this passage below, by giving of her last cake, the widow woman had provision for the rest of the drought. Perhaps the Lord has led you to give the last little ‘cake’ or blessing you have away. If this be the case, rejoice, because it means that the Lord means to prosper you in return! Bread speaks of your needs being met, while cake speaks of your desires being met.

Bread speaks of the Body of Christ and of the provision of the Lord.


1 Kings 17:13 "And Elijah said to her, Fear not; go [and] do as you have said: but make me of it a little cake first, and bring [it] to me, and after make for you and for your son." (GMR)

Matthew 14:19 And he commanded the crowd to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and broke [them], and gave the loaves to [his] disciples, and the disciples [gave them] to the crowd.
20 And they all ate, and were full: and they picked up from the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.(GMR)

Celebration and abundance (Desires met):

1 Chronicles 12:38 All these men of war, that could keep rank, came with a perfect heart to Hebron, to make David king over all Israel: and all the rest also of Israel [were] of one heart to make David king.
39 And there they were with David three days, eating and drinking: for their brothers had prepared for them.
40 Moreover they that were near them, [even] to Issachar and Zebulun and Naphtali, brought bread on asses, and on camels, and on mules, and on oxen, [and] meat, meal, cakes of figs, and bunches of raisins, and wine, and oil, and oxen, and sheep abundantly: for [there was] joy in Israel.(GMR)

Body of Christ:

1 Corinthians 10:17 For we [being] many are one bread, [and] one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.(GMR)

To see a cake that is burnt or has gone hard on one side, due to not being turned, has a bad connotation. It speaks of having the life taken out of you. It also speaks of compromise as in the passage in Hosea. It speaks of mixing yourself with those things that are not of the Lord and because of it, your blessing has now become a curse and the enemy has now stolen and caused destruction to come instead of provision.

Hosea 7:8 "Ephraim, he has mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned.
9 Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knows [it] not: yes, gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he knows not."

Definition For:

A calf in a dream, in a positive context, speaks of a new birth. Some new blessing or some new gift that is about to be given to you. It could also speak of a new venture or a new direction you have gone on. Cattle speak of business and of production, so it could very well relate to those things you have worked at and are now sowing as a result.

Dreaming of a calf instead of a fully-grown cow could also indicate immaturity. I interpreted a dream once where the gentleman dreamed of a young calf coming from the stall and overtaking the fully-grown calf. The interpretation was that this person had gone ahead of themselves in their immaturity and instead of going at a steady pace to maturity had run ahead of what the Lord had been doing in their lives.

Definition For:

A calf in a vision could have various interpretations. The first speaking of joy. In scripture the calf is seen as something joyful and exuberant as in this Psalm

Psalms 29:6 "He makes them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn." (GMR)

However, calves were also used in sacrifice and represent the covenant the Lord made with His people. Abraham cut a calf in two and walked between the pieces and in so doing entered into covenant with the Lord. Jeremiah speaks of this covenant:

Jeremiah 34:19 "The princes of Judah, and the princes of Jerusalem, the eunuchs, and the priests, and all the people of the land, which passed between the parts of the calf;" (GMR)

A calf seen as an idol i.e. the golden calf, has a very negative connotation. This speaks of idol worship, idolatry and/or occult activities. It could also speak of those things in the life of a believer that they have put above the Lord and consider more important than the Lord and due to that, this ‘calf’ has now become their god.

Exodus 32:4 "And he received [them] at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These [be] your gods, O Israel, which brought you up out of the land of Egypt." (GMR)

CAMEL / Camel's Hair

Definition For:

The camel was responsible for carrying the trade of the merchants. The camel can speak of a carrier of blessing. I saw once in the spirit, a fleet of camels carrying precious cargo and blessing. In which the Lord indicated that he was sending provision from afar and that His blessing would come from all corners of the globe. This vision was and is being fulfilled.

Also, in the Old Testament the prophets used to wear camels hair as clothing as mentioned here in Mark. Camel’s hair was very uncomfortable and scratchy. Wearing such a piece of clothing spoke of humility.

Mark 1:6 "And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he ate locusts and wild honey;" (GMR)

The camel also speaks of a place of stumbling, as mentioned here in Luke. Jesus also said to the Pharisees that they strained out a knat, but swallowed a camel. This speaks of those things which are obvious and also noticeable which should be removed out of your life.

Luke 18:25 "For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." (GMR)

Definition For:

A Candle speaks of light and the Spirit of the Lord within you. It speaks of your testimony before the world. The light from just one candle, can displace all the darkness. The candle represents the overcoming of evil and the light of Jesus Christ that shines in each Christian!

Look at the following passages for good examples:

Psalms 18:28 "For you will light my candle: the LORD [Yahweh] my God will enlighten my darkness." (GMR)

Proverbs 20:27 "The spirit of man [is] the candle of the LORD [Yahweh], searching all the rooms of the inward man." (GMR)

Matthew 5:15 "Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a measuring utensil, but on a candlestick; and it gives light to all that are in the house." (GMR)

Definition For:

A dagger very seldom has a positive picture. It was not by any means an instrument of honor or was ever put on display. Usually it was hidden from sight and was used in close combat. It is a deadly weapon that speaks of destruction and violence. Daggers are known to be used in pagan rituals for sacrifice and even in scripture it is seen as a weapon of violence.

Proverbs 23:2 "And put a knife to your throat, if you [are] a man given to appetite." (GMR)

Judges 3:21 "And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly:
22 And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out." (GMR)

2 Samuel 20:10 "But Amasa took no heed to the sword that [was] in Joab's hand: so he smote him with it in the fifth [rib], and shed out his bowels to the ground, and struck him not again; and he died." (GMR)

Definition For:

Darkness never has a positive picture as it is the opposite of light – which is the very essence of God! The scriptures tell us that Satan and his fallen angels (demons) dwell in darkness. So as light is the epitome of the Lord and His blessing, darkness is the epitome of the enemy and his curses! Jude says it very clearly here:

Jude 1:6 "And the angels which did not keep their first positions, but left their own dwelling place, he has kept in everlasting chains under [control of] darkness until the great day of judgment." (GMR)

Light vs. Dark:
Light, Life and Love are used interchangeably in scripture to often mean the same thing. Darkness, hate (Bitterness) and death are the opposite of these spiritual forces. Darkness also speaks of walking in confusion and being blind. It speaks of being in deception as in this passage:

1 John 2:11 "But he that hates his brother is in darkness, and walks in darkness, and knows not where he goes, because that darkness has blinded his eyes." (GMR)

Definition For:

In an internal dream, your daughter could speak of those things you have borne in the spirit. In other words, they can speak of your ministry. They could also speak of the positive forces of the spirit i.e. faith, hope and love.

My daughters have always represented my love and my faith in my dreams. Identify your relationship with your daughter and you will discover what they represent in your dreams. Whether positive, meaning the forces of the spirit, or negative, meaning the works of the flesh, your children will be symbolic of the relationships you have with them in real life.

Definition For:

If you see the daughter of someone you are ministering with in vision, the Lord could be indicating that their daughter needs ministry or that their daughter is directly involved in the problem they are having, that you are busy ministering to in them.

If you dream of giving birth to a daughter, look up the words Birth and Girl, as well.

Definition For:

The dart is very much like the dagger, in that it speaks of deadly attack. The dart comes from the enemy and it destroys. Darts usually contained poison, so although they were small weapons, the poison on them is what caused the actual death. Darts to the heart can speak of hurts inflicted by others in your past.

The poison of their rejection and infliction remains in that heart and so the hurt remains within, unhealed, still spreading its poison. Here is a passage that confirms that the dart speaks of death:

Proverbs 7:23 "Till a dart strikes through his liver; as a bird hurries to the snare, and does not know that it [is] for his life." (GMR)

2 Samuel 18:14 "Then said Joab, I may not wait thus with you. And he took three darts in his hand, and thrust them through the heart of Absalom, while he [was] yet alive in the midst of the oak." (GMR)

Ephesians 6:16 "Above all, taking the shield of faith, with which you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one." (GMR)

Definition For:

Dreaming of dead bodies and coffins often refers to things in your flesh that are being brought to death. Often it is your first reaction to panic when you dream of someone dying, but this need not be so at all! There have been times when I have dreamed that dead bodies kept coming out a coffin! While that sounds like a gruesome dream, the interpretation was actually that there were issues I had already died to in my life, that I was allowing to resurrect again.

Here is a good example of what I am talking about:


"My daughter who is 20, called me today. She is very distressed about a dream that she had last night. She said that it was very plain and vivid. Her brother who is 22 and certainly lives on the wild side of life, was in this dream. She said that she was with him and he got shot in the head and the stomach. She said that she went to him and put his head in her lap and saw his face very plainly and a lot of blood. He told her that it was going to be alright, and she said she watched his face turn completely white, and he died. She then woke up and cried uncontrollably for 2 hours. What should I tell her?"


"Firstly, tell your daughter that the dream is clearly internal and speaks of her. Her brother speaks of the flesh in her dream. There is a part of her flesh that is being brought to death. It would seem that through the brutality of the dream that this death will be a 'messy' one.

In fact, it is likely to be a leg-breaking experience for her. Has there been a direction she has been kicking against? Has she been going through pressures and not letting it go? If this is the case, then let her know that there is an issue the Lord is dealing with in her and that she needs to give it up to Him. This dream is indeed a warning one - but for her - not for her brother!

The Lord is making it very clear that unless she lets go and submits to the cross in her life, she will face a leg breaking and it will not be very easy for her. Teach her to 'Die already!' ok? I would also like to suggest that she close any doors to fear that she might have opened by misunderstanding the meaning of this dream. We certainly do not want Satan to have a foothold!

I trust this has help ease your fears a bit and given some direction. Here is a good scripture that explains this process:"

1 Peter 3:18 "For Christ also has once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:" (GMR)

Definition For:

The scriptures say that there will not be any more death! It also speaks of old things passing away so that the new can be born. It says in:

Revelation 21:4 "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." (GMR)

There was a time when I saw the angel of death when praying for someone. The message was very clear: her life was about to be taken. As we came against that spirit, she was restored to full health again. Satan is the author of death and in the spirit, death is epitomized as darkness, black and evil. David explain this oppression from the enemy very clearly in:

Psalms 143:3 "For the enemy pursues my soul; he crushes the life out of me; he keeps me in darkness, continually in a state of death." (GMR)

It is common to see demons both in dreams and visions. Seeing these beings indicates that you are functioning in the gift of discerning of spirits. The Lord will reveal these things to you at His bidding, but if you are having demonic manifestations or coming face to face with demonic forces that you cannot control, realize that the enemy has been given license in your life and you need to deal with it accordingly. 

Definition For:

I often see demons in the spirit and for a more detailed look on the different levels of demonic beings, I recommend the Prophetic Warrior book by Colette Toach. I will give you a quick summary here of the different levels of demons and you can then relate it to what you have experienced and seen in the spirit: 

Ephesians 6:12 "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]." (KJV) 

1 Corinthians 2:8 "Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known [it], they would not have crucified the Lord of glory." (AMIV) 

What I share here is based on my personal experience. You may see these demons in a different way, this is just a guideline for you to follow and help you identify. 

These are usually your spirits of infirmities. I see them in the spirit as insects, small crustaceans and so forth. I remember one time really suffering with a pinched sciatic nerve on my left side. The pain was unbearable, shooting from my hip and down my leg, sometimes even making my leg feel lame. My husband Craig prayed for me and in the spirit he saw what looked like a scorpion on the nerve, pinching it. After identifying the spirit of infirmity, he told it to go and I felt an instant relief. The pain and the condition cleared up and by the next day, I was walking around as if nothing had happened. 

These demons are a little stronger and what are associated to things like depression, discouragement and deception. (See 'Snakes' for more on deception) They are what attack us in our day to day walk. These are the demons that are also given the most license through association with others and by contamination through family generations. We see these demons often like monkeys or gorillas. Hanging on and attacking. 

These demons are stronger and look a bit more human in the spirit. The ruler demons are occult in nature and if someone is possessed, then there is a ruler demon involved. I often see an occult demon as a broad shouldered, strong looking demon. Sometimes green or gray in color, with a bald head and pointy ears. Some people see these spirits as your typical "devil" (pointed ears, forked tongue) kind of creature. These demons are given license through personal or generational sin involving, witchcraft, false religions, free masonry, horoscopes, fortune telling and so forth. 

The princes are very human in appearance and can even be ‘good looking’ at times. These are the demons placed over an area such as the Prince of Persia mentioned in the Word. Yes, there is a Prince of America, Mexico, Africa and every other country, state and province of the earth. They are given license through the sin and words of man.  

I have seen the prince of America as a half bull and half man. Having the face of a man, but the horns of a bull. We have seen the prince of Mexico as looking like a type of Indian chief, with a full feather headdress on.

I have seen the prince of death and he looks like an emaciated black being. Thin and evil.  I have seen the prince of lust. He is attractive, almost feminine in appearance and is dressed lavishly in many different silks and colors. When I see this demon, I know that the person I am ministering to is bound by lust. 

These are just a few, but you should be able to identify for yourself what you are coming against. 

1 Corinthians 2:8 "Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known [it], they would not have crucified the Lord of glory." (GMR) 

The wickedness in high places refer to the three main leaders of the demonic realm. The first being Lucifer who is in charge of the religious system, second is Apollyon who is in charge of the world and the attack on us directly and thirdly Pharaoh, who is in charge of the world system and referred to as 'The God of This World'. Colette TOach covers each of these and the foundation of their existence in the Word, in the Prophetic Warrior book, if you need a deeper understanding. 


Isaiah 14:12 "How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! [how] are you cut down to the ground, which weakened the nations!" (GMR) 


Revelation 9:11 "And they had a king over them, [which is] the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue has [his] name Apollyon." (GMR) 

Pharaoh (God of this world):

2 Corinthians 4:4 "In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of those who do not believe, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine into them." (GMR)  

Please Note: If you are having encounters with demons that are leading to actual physical experiences, this denotes an open door in your life that is given Satan license to attack you! I recommend that you get the Prophetic Warrior books by Colette Toach as soon as possible and overcome this bondage in your life!

A gate, path, door or fence opening, all speak of either a new direction in your life or one that has passed. I often see a door or gate in the spirit when I am releasing someone into something new in their lives. It often speaks of a new plan that the Lord has for them. Perhaps someone has been believing the Lord for a new job or hoping to move house. If I see an open door before them, it means that the way is clear before them. If I see a closed door, it either means that we need to pray and open the door, or that something is blocking them. The same refers to a path or to a gate.  

I might see a blockage in the road that needs removing, or the Lord could be saying “not now, I have put this blockage here for a reason”. Once again it takes a bit of discernment and a look at the person’s current condition. Let’s look at a few typical scenarios here: 

Definition For:

I see a door, gate or a new path in the spirit most often when I am releasing an individual into their ministry or releasing them into something new. When I have imparted gifts or confirmed a calling in a person’s life, then the Lord often shows me a new door that he has for them. This door refers to a new plan, with a new set of circumstances. This often also involves closing off the doors to the past. At this point the Holy Spirit requires that they commit entirely to this new plan and allow Him to ‘burn their bridges’ of the past and close all past doors. 

Referring to a new direction for ministry:

1 Corinthians 16:8 "But I will stay on at Ephesus until Pentecost,
9 because a great door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me."

2 Corinthians 2:12 "Now when I went to Troas to preach the gospel of Christ and found that the Lord had opened a door for me," (NIV) 

If you see a closed door, then the Lord means for you to open it in the spirit:

Revelation 3:8 "I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name." (NIV)

Most negative doors I see in the spirit refer to an open door to the demonic realm. When I see an open door and darkness behind it, or a demon coming out of it, I know that a person has an ‘open door’ in their lives. In other words they have given the enemy license to mess in their lives because of personal sin, generational sin or sin by association. In this situation, I do NOT close this door on the person's behalf. It is vital to remember that you cannot forgive sins that are unto death. In other words, if the person in question opened the door, then it is up to THEM to repent and shut it. Once again Colette Toach covers this extensively in the Prophetic Warrior and Prophetic Counter Insurgence books.  

In a nutshell, the person must apply these three steps:

James 4:7 "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." (GMR) 

1. Submit to the Lord.
2. Confess your sin
3. Then close that door and tell Satan to leave! 

Speaking of walking a life of sin (thus giving the enemy license in your life):

Proverbs 4:14 "Enter not into the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of evil [men]." (GMR) 

In reference to giving license to the enemy:

Ephesians 4:26 "Be angry, but do not sin: do not let the sun set on your anger:
27 Neither give licence to the devil.
28 Let him stole stop stealing: but rather let him be working hard, earning through working with [his] hands good things, that he may have something to give to those who lack.
29 Let no rotten words proceed out of your mouth, but those which are beneficial in being used for the purpose of building up, that it may impart grace to the hearers.
30 And do not grieve the holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed until the day of redemption.
31 Let all bitterness, and explosive anger, and boiling anger, and violent argument, and slander, be put away from you, with all malice:
32 And be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God for Christ's sake has forgiven you."
