What Does Ice Mean In Your Dream?

Ice can appear in dramatically different forms in your dreams, which can make deciphering the meaning difficult. You may see a glass full of ice, frozen windows, a frozen lake, a glacier, or something else entirely.

But what does ice mean in a dream?

Why Am I Dreaming Of Ice?

Like water in dreams, ice represents your emotions, but in an entirely different way. These dreams come as a warning, as your emotions or a situation in waking life is causing you to ‘freeze’ your progress through life.

Maybe you’re going through a difficult time, where you refuse to listen to your emotions, in which case this dream urges you to find a way to ‘break’ the ice and acknowledge how you feel, to heal, and move on.

It also represents how you feel blocked by something in your waking life. You may feel your emotions are ‘frozen’ in a desperate or awful situation that you don’t know what to do with, but you don’t feel anything at all.

Let’s take a look at a few scenarios.

The Ice Dream Symbol

If you dream of a snowy landscape, and you come across some ice, this implies that you have some difficulty ahead of you. If you dream of being surrounded by ice, this is a warning sign. You should be very careful about the decisions you make shortly.

If you dream of driving or walking along a road blanketed in ice, this implies that you need to be more patient when it comes to trying to achieve your goals.

Dreaming of slipping and falling onto ice suggests that you have a great journey ahead of you in life, filled with fantastic experiences.

However, if the ice makes you nervous, or it causes injury this suggests bad luck ahead for you. 

A dream where you carry ice, either small cubes for drinks or a big block implies that you feel jumpy in waking life. You can’t relax.

Deliberately shattering ice in your dream refers to pent-up fear and anxiety that’s affecting your decisions. If you’re melting ice in your dream, this reflects how you are ignoring your problems in waking life, and this will only make things more difficult.

A dream of dirty ice denotes stress, fear of failure, and bewilderment, while clean ice refers to patience, resilience, or stagnating in your waking life.

A dream where you walk on a frozen lake only to fall into it as the ice shatters should be taken as a warning. It implies that you are being stubborn, you’re not listening to your intuition or your emotions, and in some form, you’re trying to withdraw from waking life.

If a dream of ice involves a fear of freezing to death, this reflects how your relationships are suffering, and you’re wondering if these connections will survive at all, or be changed forever.

A dream like this may also mean that you suffer from a deep-rooted fear of failing at any aspect of life, but it’s especially strong when it comes to your romantic relationships as well as your monetary wealth.

In some cases, a dream where you are about to freeze to death reflects your ‘cold’ approach towards other people. 

You’re not exactly being sympathetic towards other people and their problems right now, and you’re in danger of alienating people enough that they won’t want to spend time with you anymore.
