1. Spiritual Warfare
Your dream about witches may be exposing the enemies’ plan. Take special note of what happened in the dream. Then, you can take action and pray specifically against the enemy harming you in this way.
For example, I dreamt of a witch cursing my car. Every time I drove, things would block my sight and my windshield. This dream showed the enemy sending things to cause me to be spiritually blind. Now that my dream made me aware, I know that the enemy is bringing things to stop me from focusing and seeing clearly. To protect myself, I can then pursue God and mentorship to ensure I don’t crash due to the problems in my life.
"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." (Ephesians 6:12)
God is allowing you to see the enemies’ plan in dreams about witches. The witches goals is to distract you from focusing on God, your purpose, loving others, and bringing Heaven to earth.
This dream is a reminder that you’re so powerful that the enemy had to send his minions to slow you down. Remember, don’t stop now. Be encouraged that your prayers and kingdom work is making a difference. Overall, you’re doing a good job, so keep being righteous.

Unfortunately, their impatient and distrustful actions are promoting the spirit of darkness in the world. Consequently, pride and arrogance drives those who trust in their own works over Gods’.
If you OR a loved one are doing witchcraft in a dream it is an invitation to pray. God wants to make you all aware of the unhealthy behaviors, so that you can repent and walk on the righteous path.
In 1 Samuel 28:3-25, King Saul sought a medium when God departed from him. The medium conjured up the ghost of the prophet Samuel. Samuel told him that he and his son would die. And David would become the new king. Saul was being punished because he rebelled and didn’t “obey the Lord.”
"For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, he has rejected you as king.” (1 Samuel 15:23)
Your dream about a witch might be an encouragement to remove issues that seek to defile you — addictions, un-forgiveness, arguments, rebellion, anger, fear. manipulation, pride, lust, control, impatience, and distrusting God. Fortunately, God has given you authority to trample over every evil spirit and to escape generational curses.
If you are looking for witches in your dream, it shows a level of helplessness and lack of faith. Such dreams are a reminder to submit your heart to God. Allow him to heal you, so you can trust him in hard times instead of looking to unhealthy sources and adopting unhealthy behaviors to cope.

5. Carnal Flesh
Dreaming of a witch can indicate areas of your life that are carnal. These dreams should prompt you to ask God to search your heart. Ask him to reveal any impurities and then ask him to heal it. The impurities can include jealousy, un-forgiveness, selfishness, arguments, anger, fear, manipulation, pride, lust, control, impatience, and distrusting God.
In contrast, dreaming of someone you know doing witchcraft can highlight their behavior. The dream may also highlight your thoughts about them. Such dreams are a prompt to pray for them or fix the way you view others.
Overall, God wants to make you and anyone you dream about more righteous. Therefore, speak to a counselor, pastor, or to empowerment coach to explore the root cause of your dreams.
"The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions" (Galatians 5:19-20)
