Dream Dictionary
 Definition: Seeing ice in your dream, suggests that you are lacking a flow of ideas and thoughts. You are not seeing in progress in your life. Alternatively, you may be feeling emotionally paralyzed or rigid. You need to let your feelings be known. Dreaming that you are walking on ice indicates that you are standing on shaky or instable ground. You are taking risks that you shouldn't be taking. Fear and caution are also implied. Dreaming that you fall through ice, suggests that your emotions are threatening to come crashing through.
