Ice is the symbol of cold. Furthermore it appears in many forms. For example, it is a slab that covers rivers and lakes; can cover a huge mountain.
It represents an inflexible attitude for stubborn people or a flexible attitude for those who are calm in nature.
You can be ice for the loss or for cooling in a relationship. It often appears in dreams near parts of the body that are really having blood circulation problems.
According to a Freudian interpretation, the dream can symbolize that one is emotionally cold and distant or emotionally inhibited or frigid.
Dreams About Ice Skating – Meaning
Skating and skiing, in dreams as in reality, is equivalent to slipping easily on the ground or on the snow, covering wider distances with a different muscular effort from that of the common walking.
It is a way to get around any obstacles and the slowness of the step by step, with the use of tools such as skates or skis and a skill that allows their use.
But it can happen to dream of skating or skiing even without skates or skis, using shoes or even bare feet to slide on snow, ice or asphalt.
They are singular dreams that are often lived and remembered with a share of fun for this rapid passing away, and for one’s own ability to keep one’s balance.
They can indicate the desire to move forward and to act impatiently without pausing too long to reflect or evaluate what is wanted and how to obtain it.
They can highlight the need to go on counting on “lightness” and fun.
If you slip on snow or ice it is good to consider the unpleasant sensation of “cold” as a negative signal that can indicate the difficulties of the moment or the hostility of the environment in which you live.
So that skating or skiing away with the thrill of speed becomes a way to escape problems, to bypass them or to compensate for the heaviness of the situation, as happens in the following dream done by a middle-aged woman struggling with family, job and few entertainment:
I dreamed of skating in the snow … or maybe I was skiing, but I don’t have skates or skis on my feet. I am skiing with my feet and I look at them in amazement, because I manage to keep the balance well even when the ground sometimes goes uphill and there are mountains and rocks. I feel very good and I really like feeling the fresh wind on my face as I go fast and light. (M.-Modena)
But not always skating or skiing in dreams is so pleasant and rewarding… there are dreams in which the action of skating or skiing takes place without the will and control of the dreamer, in which one proceeds feeling danger and fear, in which one is notices obstacles or gullies where one could fall.
These dreams indicate a difficult relationship with the reality we are experiencing. They show their feelings at the mercy of events and their fear and their difficulty in proceeding in an overwhelming or stressful context, in which their needs are not met or even examined. They are dreams that can alert the dreamer and show him a way to advance risky or superficial.
Of course the dream context in which you ski or skate will affect the dream analysis. Because an urban environment made up of roads and traffic, in which skating on the asphalt paying attention to dodge cars and pedestrians, will be very different from the ski slope in the high mountains where you move among other skiers, alpine huts and a holiday environment.
In the first case the dreamer will have to reflect on his daily life and on the social or working context in which he moves, in the second case the need for “space” and escape can prevail, in addition to a need to measure oneself with oneself that sport often represents.
So, as always, every dream will be examined time by time without generalizing, taking into account the personal connections and meanings that each one attributes to these two situations.
But to sum up we can consider skating and skiing in dreams among the most singular and original dream actions in putting the dreamer in contact with the concept of “speed” SUA (speed of intent, thought, actions) and on a possible exaggerated activism, or else speed, on rhythms that are not appropriate and that follows passively adapting, forcing and feeling unwell.
