CRYING / SCREAMING / LAUGHING

If you or someone else was crying, screaming or laughing in your dream, this may be a confirmation of how they are feeling in waking life. Similarly, if you woke up laughing, screaming or crying after your dream, could these vocalized emotions be expressing the happiness, excitement and sadness you are experiencing in waking life? Or were you crying for help or screaming in terror? Have you been repressing powerful emotions in waking life and did venting them in dreamland give you a sense of release?

Dreams of crying may function as a release for the sorrow or grief that has been holding you back consciously or unconsciously in waking life. Alternatively, such dreams may be an intuitive awareness of something ending or someone leaving in your waking life; or are your tears crocodile tears?

Dreams of laughing suggest a release of tension or an attempt to put yourself and others at ease. Depending on your feelings during the dream and on waking, the laugh may however be a sign that you are hiding the truth or taking things too lightly, as sometimes laughter can hide sadness and the truth. Bear in mind that laughter can also be a sign of contempt, and if someone laughs in your face, your unconscious may have used the archetype of the Trickster in an attempt to make you rethink something or reconsider your values. When the laughter becomes the kind of cackling associated in folklore with wicked witches and mischief-making, this may represent your inner voice questioning and ridiculing your pretensions....

LAUGHING

Waking up laughing from a dream, or remembering a dream image in which you laugh unworriedly, is one of the most pleasurable sensation that the subconscious gives. Almost always it is a mechanism of compensation for moments of stress and anxiety. It could also be a reflection of your god sense of humor and mood in real life. Without a doubt, this dream lets you start the day with more optimism and happiness. When another is laughing at you it is possible that a part of your personality reproves your behavior when you are awake.

It is also a sign of the fear of making a fool of oneself.

LAUGHING - analysis of the dream

Joaquín dreamed: “It was a dream that I have very often. I explain a funny joke and begin to laugh alone without stopping. I am surprised by my ingenious and sense of humor and I take joy in it. Hahahaha... I am so funny! Then I wake up dying of laughter, wanting to share it with someone. Hours later when I think dying of laughter, wanting to share it with someone. Hours later when I think about it to tell it to a friend, it seems like senseless nonsense.”

Dreams of humor rarely make sense in the light of day. However, waking up laughing is one of the most pleasurable sensations that the subconscious can give us. In Joaquin’s case, these dreams served to relax the daily tension that he dealt with. As an air traffic controller, Joaquin worked under a lot of pressure, in which a sense of humor or distraction had no place. In the dream world, his subconscious displayed his fun and humorous side in compensation. When Joaquin has these dreams he wakes up happy and optimistic, facing his work day with less tension....

LAUGHTER

You may find yourself laughing as you wake up from a dream; in some cases, when you recall the dream images you may realize that what you were laughing at was not very funny at all.

If this happens, study all the other symbols in your dream and particularly the symbol that most made you laugh, as this will hold the key to your interpretation. The purpose of jokes is to surprise and amuse you in unexpected ways, so if you dream of hearing or telling a joke, your dreaming mind may be trying to draw your attention to a serious issue to which you need to pay attention in your waking life; serious things are often said in jest, even in dreams. Alternatively, dreams of laughter can also have a sinister side, as laughter can reveal emotions of embarrassment, fear or even a sense of paranoia, especially if others are laughing at you.
