Dream meaning: Ice

 Just as water in a dream often represents emotions,  ice can symbolize a freezing, withholding, or repression of these emotions.

Ice can also reflect the feeling of being “frozen” or paralyzed with fear, guilt, or other anxieties.

The Freudians also suggest that ice in a dream can symbolize sexual frigidity or repressed sexual desires.

Could you or someone close to you be acting “cold” emotionally or physically? Is fear or anxiety preventing you from taking some desired course of action?

    I had a very detailed dream of being at my late father in law’s house, only this was an old big farm house, not small like his. I was outside, but don’t recall what I was doing. Three diff times some kids came to me bringing me something. The only thing I can now remember is the little girl that brought me alot of old fashion metal ice trays, overfilled w/ice cubes. She gave them to me. And then she left. She was sweet. I think her mom came for her. These were all country kids like how I grew up. the other two kids prior to her were boys, one set came w/their dad. But I can’t recall what they brought to me. I wish I could. Oh one set was shooting old fashion bows and arrows. Not sure what that means either. Each of the three set of children brought me something. Including the ice trays of ice from the little girl, w/blonde hair in pig tails.

    I dreamed that I was looking out of the window and I saw a baby crawling or trying to crawl on ice. I felt panic and went out to save this poor baby. The body was a little blue. But when I came in it was a baby cat that I was holding. It was extremely bruised and it was bleeding. Someone must have hurt it very bad and the cat screamed as I tried to save him.

    Last night I had a dream, that my best friend fell though ice as I was warning her. She went under the ice and as soon as she went under she was just so still and gone.

    I had a dream that I was killed by ice. Ice cubes came from nowhere and crushed my body…

    I had a dream that I fell off a boat into ice-filled freezing water. I couldn’t move. All I could do was stick my hand out and hope that my mom, who was on the boat too, would be able to reach my hand and pull me out. She was able to reach me and pull me out. That’s all I remember.

    I dreamt I was under some ice and that someone was crawling out before me being helped by other people. Then the sides crashed in and I was still trapped underneath . It was lots of tunnels and weird lands almost down there. I remember being scared and really cold. I was rescued finally after years being down under the ice, but still felt scared. Strange.

    last night i had a dream about being in another dimension with these weird middle aged white folks. My sisters, My cousin and I were in the back of the apartment swimming in brown colored water and then about five minutes later, we’re stepping on it and a lot of it had just turned into ice. We go back in our bedroom in the apartment and the couple is trying to come in our room but I try to block it by placing a chair under the door knob. They’re actually speaking through the door at us kind of yelling. We’re all kind of scared and just want to go back home but don’t know how. All there was, was the apartment itself secluded from a lobby (or whatever else is in an apartment complex) and an outside street. Oh yeah and just the backyard which was filled with brown water at first and a few trees hovering over the little lake. We are all trying whatever we can to go back to our normal lives, and than my 15 yr old sister gets electrocuted by a socket and little by little everything goes back to normal and were back at our normal world.

    I dreamt of ice falling/melting into rising water close to me. I escaped it but 3 other people around me were just about to escape it as I woke up. Does this represent my repressed emotions or those of others? And what does it mean for the ice to be collapsing around me?

    I keep dreaming about ice in a freezer…and also dream about ice trays in a freezer that some puts in an oven… what does the appearance of ice cubes in a dream mean?

    [editor: The entry for ice has recently been updated. The most common interpretation for ice appearing in a dream is that it represents some sort of repressed or withheld emotion or desire.]
