Seeing Dolls In The Dream Biblical And Spiritual Meaning

If you are among the many who have been seeing dolls in dreams, read this article on the biblical meaning of doll in dreams.
Perhaps you are a Christian and you have been seeing dolls in your dreams, and have been wondering what your dreams mean. You are at the right place to learn the meaning of your dream. Today we will be discussing the biblical meaning of doll in dreams. 

Biblical Meaning Of Doll In Dreams

Dolls happen to be one of the most alluring creations of man. I believe that everyone's basic understanding of a doll is that of an adorable thing. We've grown up to know that dolls are made to be physical, inanimate companions of children (and sometimes adults). 

Traditionally, dolls are toys for children. But if you research a bit further about them, you will find out that their purpose for existence go way deeper than what society wants you to believe. 

Wikipedia states emphatically that, “dolls have a central role in magic and religious rituals and have been used as representations of deities” (Dolls: uses, appearances and issues - Wikipedia). The deities mentioned here are what the Bible calls "gods," idols or evil spirits. 

Leviticus 26:1 BSB
You must not make idols for yourselves or set up a carved image or sacred pillar; you must not place a sculpted stone in your land to bow down to it. For I am the LORD your God.

The earliest documentated existence of dolls can be traced back to the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece, and Rome. The activities of these civilizations centered most especially around magic and idol worshipping. 

Although today, dolls are widely accepted and mass-produced as collectibles—especially as toys for children, it's still difficult to trace the manufacturer of every doll that is being sold out there. That alone should be a cause for concern. 

If you do a Google search with the keywords; “Bible verses about dolls,” the results that pop up will most likely talk about mediums and familiar spirits, voodoo, idols and witchcraft

Have you ever asked questions like, “how did the name 'doll' come about in the first place? Who named the first doll, and why does the word sound so similar with 'idol'?” I'll say, that's not a coincidence. But I'll leave you to ponder on it. 

Here are some scriptures I stumbled upon, while searching for Bible verses concerning dolls:

Revelation 21:8 KJV
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Leviticus 19:31 NKJV
Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.

Acts 19:18 ESV
Also many of those who were now believers came, confessing and divulging their practices.

Apart from the fact that not all dolls are pleasant to look at (because some actually look creepy and emit eerie presence), many people have reportedly had weird spiritual encounters with the physical dolls in their possession. Some of you have also seen creepy movies concerning dolls (which are in no way a coincidence). 

Some have been continously tormented by frightening dreams of creepy dolls, and we cannot say that's ordinary. 

This isn't me trying to scare anyone so that they get rid of the costly dolls they spent so much money to purchase. What you choose to do with them after reading this article, is left to your own discretion. 

But let the spiritually sound take heed and be discerning. Life is spiritual, and not everything that appears innocent and harmless to the physical eyes, actually are. 

What Does It Mean To Dream About A Doll

Different people see different kinds of dreams about dolls. While some of these dreams are pleasant to see, others aren't so pleasant.

There are harmless doll dreams (rare) and there are evil doll dreams. There are people who see pleasant dreams about dolls, and there are others whose dream life is filled with creepy dreams of dolls. 

As a parent, if your children keep telling you that they often dream of their dolls, you should pay attention and further interrogate them on the kind of doll dreams they are seeing. Also take a second and careful look at the doll in their possession. 

Pleasant doll dreams will often point to the following:

1. Innocence And Vulnerability

As an adult, seeing a harmless and pleasant dream of a doll could reflect the child-like attribute of your being. As a Christian, it can mean that you are meek, childlike and humble; just like our Lord Jesus Christ expects of us:

Matthew 18:3 NLT
Then he said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven.

However, such a dream could also reveal that you are too naive and vulnerable as an individual, and people are taking advantage of that for evil intents against you. 

2. Doll Dreams Symbolize Childhood Memories

Seeing dolls in dreams could also reflect childhood memories. The dreamer apparently has childhood memories that they hold so dear and sometimes think about. Such memories can as well manifest in form of doll dreams. 

3. They May Symbolize Children

Because most dolls today are playtoys for kids, some doll dreams are symbolic of children. 

For instance, a woman who has been desiring to have children may start seeing pleasant dreams of dolls, like a dream of buying a doll or owning one. 

But the dreamer also has to be careful with such dreams. If these dreams tend to be recurring and disturbing, then they are not normal. 

Spiritual Meaning Of Dolls In Dreams

Apart from such instances of doll dreams I've explained above, most of the dreams people see concerning dolls often end up being evil and scary. 

From what I have already explained so far, dolls were originally created for magic and ritual purposes. That is why, most dolls that people have around today are inhabited by evil entities. 

Millions of evil spirits roam the earth searching for suitable human bodies to possess. When they can't find, then they start searching for something that is the closest alternative to humans. Dolls are among the favorites they opt for. 

Don't be surprised to learn that most dolls are demon possessed (including the ones that are displayed on shelves for sell in shopping malls). Sadly, there are people who ignorantly buy demons and take them into their homes. 

There are many people who started having series of nightmares right after they brought a particular doll into their apartment. That's not a coincidence. 

Some noticed that, each time they returned home, the dolls were not in the original position where they were kept. I know that's easy to shrug off. But after observing this happen time and again, it gets scary when you intuitively find out that something isn't right about your dolls.

If you are someone who constantly sees scary dreams of dolls, firstly, you should make sure you don't have any dolls in your home. Having dolls that are inhabited by spirits in your apartment can turn your home into a haunted spot. The nightmares won't stop coming until you get rid of them. 

I earlier mentioned that parents should pay attention, if their kids keep telling them that they often dream about dolls.

As a parent, if your kids keep reporting to you that they always see dreams of playing with dolls each time they go to sleep, you should be worried. Those dreams are obviously recurring, so they are not normal. 

There are parents who have less time for their kids, so they provide dolls as alternatives. A doll shouldn't get the attention of your kids more than you do; because by so doing, some parents have ignorantly opened doors for demons to bond with and torment their children. 

It is inadvisable to make dolls your kids' bed companions. Most nightmares those kids will have will likely come from the dolls in their rooms, and the ones the parents tug into their bedsheets at night. 

It is not strange that there are also adults who constantly see scary dreams of dolls. Such occurrences have their roots somewhere. For some, this can be traced down to their childhood days. 

Some kids had traumatic experiences in their childhood days, which got them secluded and introverted; the only thing they found comfort in were their dolls. That opened the door for evil spirits to bond and grow up with them, perhaps becoming their familiar spirit.

Most adults who are constantly tormented by creepy doll dreams, actually got entangled with those spirits in their childhood. The spirits capitalized on a trauma, loneliness, or love for dolls during their childhood days, to establish a soul tie which they grew up with. 

Again, I strongly advise against allowing a doll to replace you in the lives of your babies. Make sure you are not unknowingly enabling them. 

In adult women, evil doll dreams can cause barrenness. This can come as subtle but deadly demonic attack against their ability to make babies. For childless women who often see themselves owning creepy-looking doll babies in their dreams, it is time to start praying ruggedly against such dreams. 

What Does It Mean When You Dream About A Doll Coming To Life

Dreaming about a doll coming to life is obviously a creepy one. Such dreams confirm what I've been saying before; that the doll spirits are present and actively working to oppress and torment the dreamer. 

This dream could also mean that something happened that opened the door for evil doll spirits to find their way into the home or life of the dreamer. In this case, serious prayers and deliverance are needed. 

What Does It Mean When You Dream About Dolls Attacking You

Doll spirits are low-ranking evil spirits, but they are not harmless. No evil spirit is benevolent, they should all be gotten rid of. These spirits attack both kids and adults in their dreams. 

A dream of dolls attacking you isn't an ordinary dream to ignore. It shows that the dreamer is under spiritual attack from the kingdom of darkness. 

If you have been seeing dolls attacking you in your dreams, read on and follow the steps you will be provided below, to combat these spirits and prevent such dreams from continuing. 

Every work of darkness has a corroding effect on a child of God, if allowed to persist unabated. So you shouldn't allow these dreams to continue. 

Our Lord Jesus Christ said that He manifested in order to destroy the works of darkness. No work of the enemy is too small to be ignored, they are all meant to be dismantled. 

1 John 3:8 BSB
The one who practices sin is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the very start. This is why the Son of God was revealed, to destroy the works of the devil. 

No form of demonic attack should be treated with levity. So get ready to pray till you gain your deliverance. 

Solution To Evil Dreams Of Dolls

If you have been repeatedly seeing scary and evil dreams of dolls, those dreams are literal spiritual attacks which you shouldn't fold arms and allow to continue. By the help of God, you can get rid of such dreams and every spirit behind them. 

  1. Make sure you are saved. Before attempting to be freed from dreams of demonic dolls and their influences, you should be genuinely saved. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the One who manifested the destroy the works of the devil. He is going to fight through you; through His power in you. You're not going to be the one fighting with your own power. So if you're not yet saved, go ahead and pray this salvation prayer
  2. Ask the Lord to reveal the source of those dream attacks. If you are yet to identify the root cause of the doll dreams you are seeing, go on and pray, asking the Lord to reveal that to you. Knowing the root cause of those dreams will help you navigate the right path to pray, and pray effectively to gain permanent victory over these demons. 
  3. Command them to leave. Pray and speak out commanding every evil spirit that is not of God, occupying your home and following you around to leave. Tell them that whatever connection they had with you is broken and they are no longer welcome in your home/life. They should leave. Do this while on fasting, and feel free to repeat this step throughout the days of your fast, if you feel led to. 
  4. Get rid of physical dolls in your possession. If you have dolls in your apartment, or if you own suspicious dolls, get rid of them. Make time to walk around all the rooms in your house, praying and Anointing them. Do this while on fasting. 
  5. Shield and seal your home and your life through the blood of Jesus Christ. Ask the fire of God to burn fiercely in your home and around you, so as to ward off evil presences and prevent the demons from returning.
