Wading – Dreaming about wading in the water is symbolic of childhood and play time fun. Many people have very fond memories of wading in water as a child. This is usually the time in a childhood that is full of adventure and really believing that magic exists. It does exist, but we learn to drown out the feeling as we get older. If you dream about children wading in a pool, pond or puddle it means that you are calling yourself back to the magical part of your life that you enjoyed before.
