I Dream Meanings

Dream Dictionary: Dreams Beginning with I

When using the Dream Dictionary Guide, be sure to “look up” each dream symbol, color, and number you remember from your dream as well as the emotions you felt or encountered during the dream AND upon wakening from the dream. All of these are clues that’ll help you piece together the puzzle that is your dream’s meaning and interpretation.


Ice. To dream of anything involving ice cubes or icicles usually indicates an emotional “coldness.” This can represent someone you know (even if it’s a recent run in with a department store worker you don’t even know by name). This emotional coldness can also represent the dreamer. The dreamer may feel like they’ve recently been cold or cruel to someone or they may fear they came across this way when they didn’t mean to.  If your dream is about thawing or melting ice, it means that there has been a recent improvement (or breakthrough) in icy emotions. Things are beginning to warm up!

Ice Cream.  While Ice dreams – as far as dream interpretations go – are mostly negative, ice cream dreams are anything but negative! Dreaming of ice cream indicates a love of life, joy, happiness, and a return to childlike fun.  An interesting, yet disturbing, exception would be if the dreamer dreams of melting ice cream, lost ice cream, or dropped ice cream. These dreams indicate a fear of losing or having lost one or more of these joyful emotions/experiences.

Icy Roads. While ice, itself, generally represents coldness (emotionally), icy roads are symbolic of danger.  The dreamer could be worried about a posed danger to his or herself  or to someone they care about.

Idiot.  To dream of someone who is… well, an idiot!… suggests that you’ve been finding it difficult to communicate something in particular to someone in particular.  The frustration of not being able to make them understand may be causing you more anxiety than you realize.

Igloo. Dreaming of an igloo can have several meanings. Sometimes, it’s simply a matter of the dreamer being cold (in “real life”) and this condition finding its way into their dream – in a pretty dramatic way!

Dreaming of an igloo can also indicate that the dreamer feels trapped by something because we often think of igloos as small – without a lot of room to move in.

Illness. If you dream that someone else is ill or even dying, it suggests that you’re worried about this person in some capacity. You may worry about their health, finances, choices, or even your relationship with them.

If you dream that YOU are ill, it suggests that there’s something about yourself  you are troubled about or wish to change in some way.

Indigestion.  This may seem like a funny word to include in a dream dictionary, but you’d be surprised to learn how many people dream about having indigestion or stomach problems.  People who LOVE to find hidden meanings in their dreams (don’t we all?!) are always a little disappointed to find out that most indigestion dreams simply mean that they are… in “real” life… experiencing stomach issues, as they sleep. The discomfort simply works its way into the dreams.

However, there are times when dreaming about indigestion or other stomach issues hold an actual dream interpretation. Sometimes when one dreams about having indigestion, they’re aware that they’ve currently had – or are having – trouble understanding or accepting something.  They can’t emotionally “digest” or “process” it.  Dreaming of anything that has to do with intestines, your stomach, or “gut” can also refer to the word “guts.”  You could have recently said or heard something along the lines of, “I hate their guts!” Another meaning could be that you fear you don’t have the “guts” for something in particular.

A REMINDER: The Dream Dictionary is a very “fluid” section of Dream Prophesy, in that it is forever changing. I add dream symbols and entries to the dictionary regularly and often even “flesh out” or “add to” old entries. Why? Because symbolisms change regularly.  If the exact same dreams were experienced in, say 1975 and 2015, the interpretations would be vastly different. Different things symbolize different things over time and, therefore, the meanings change. This is why outdated and “ancient” dream guides are inaccurate.  

The only accurate dream dictionary or dream guide is the one frequently updated.
