To dream of a pond represents uncertainty in your life that you are comfortable with. Confidence in your ability to to try new things. Confidence in your ability to confront a new challenge without embarrassing yourself. Your ability to try something dangerous without angering someone. Alternatively, a pond may reflect how you are keeping a problem contained. Keeping emotions in check.
Negatively, dreaming about a pond reflects feeling about private exploration of dangerous or bad habits. Enjoying yourself doing something bad to someone else without them knowing it. Liking yourself as you are even if other people don’t. Feeling that your life is easier to accept yourself as you are instead of making a big change to improve it. Feeling good enjoying something illegal whenever you want.
Example: A man dreamed of swimming the backstroke in a pond. In waking life he was heavily involved in a secretive criminal enterprise that was virtually impossible to get caught with. He felt exhilarated to make enormous amounts of money with great ease without even caring about the legal consequences. He enjoyed thinking he was better than other people because he made more money than everyone he knew in his life easier than they ever could. The pond in this case may have reflected his feelings about enjoying illegal behavior whenever he wanted and the uncertainty about being caught unimportant to him.
Example 2: A man dreamed of seeing waterslides being installed beside a pond. In waking life he was secretly becoming addicted to pornography. The pond in this case may have reflected his feelings about enjoying pornography in private whenever he wanted with no consequences knowing full well it was immoral.
Example 3: A woman dreamed of walking across a frozen pond. In waking life she decided to move homes comfortable with the uncertainty of not being able to financially afford it completely. The frozen pond in this case may have reflected her feelings about moving being more financially uncertain than it was physically or technically.
