Wadding, in spiritual and psychic terms, suggests security. It is an image that often arises when we are looking for protection. Sometimes bodily changes can be reflected in the images that we produce in dreams. Wadding can represent a fear of getting fat or becoming ungainly. In dreams our need for security can become more noticeable than we allow it to be in ordinary, everyday life. Because wadding is normally a protective material, we may decide that we should take action to protect ourselves rather than defend ourselves. Also consult the entry for Fat and Packing.
