Laughing Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Laughing – Dreaming about laughing is a sign that good times are on their way. If you dream about laughing unnaturally or hysterically it means that you or someone close to you are under too much stress and need to take a vacation from your everyday life or make a change in your routine. If you dream about being in a group of friends and you are all having a good time it means that you are entering into a period of joy.

If you dream that people are laughing at you it is indicative that you feel self-conscious about some aspect of your life that you do not want to be judged about. It is important to understand that others will only perceive you in a negative light if you perceive yourself that way. Make an effort to feel proud about your differences and you will be accepted for who you are.

  1. I had a dream about my oldest son with my 3year old grandson, I do not get to see them often. My son was holding his in a swing by water and just looking over at me and smiling, waving, and in general having fun. I woke up every time I dreamed, Why would I have the same dream several times in one night. I was at peace with the dream, just do not understand the number of times dreamed.
    Thanks for any info.

  2. My dream was about walking in on my ex having sex with his ex who is actually my friend. In the past they dis cheat, and promised to never do it again. A year has passed and we are currently broken up, he is the father to my son, and she is one of my close friends. In my dream I cought them having sex and my friend started laughing… he was quiet. I woke up and fell asleep to have the same dream again… what does that mean?? Thanx for any input!

    • A particular dream can have one, two or even 3 different interpretation & if u don’t have d spiritual gift or accurate revelation, explanation and above all led by d spirit of God, to discern & to interprete d dream & also d ability & Grace to proffer solutions, u will fall in errors & make costly mistakes that will hurt u, ur destiny & others around u. Going back to ur dream where u saw the father of ur child having sex with ur friend in d dream is completely a bad dream. The person u saw in d dream is not the father of ur child & the Lady u saw in d dream is not ur friend. Their faces was just been used in ur dream. Its spiritual demonic photoshop. When u saw two people that is familiar with u having sex in d dream, It means that an “evil pregnancy” has been conceived against u , ur marriage or relationship by a demonic spiritual strong man/spiritual husband & a familiar spirit in d realm of the spirit to carry out a demonic assignment in ur life . You need to pray against it & let God abort their “evil pregnancy” of satanic surprises , delay, disappointments, and/or unpleasant situations in ur life etc. These are forces behind whatever problem & challenges u are facing in life.

  3. I dreamt early morning that a woman standing in front of our building and laughing madly like making fun of, where 4- 5 families live in the building.

      I just woke up from a dream where I put on long black gloves like Theodora’s gloves in Haunting of Hill House, then looked into a mirror in the bathroom and started laughing maniacally while my face changed over and over to look like hers. Woke up with full body chills. Very disturbing.

  4. Lauren Dawn Salters on

    A few mins ago I woke up from a nap I don’t dream any more have not for two months but my husband saw me smiling and giggling in my sleep he said he thought it was cute I’m about five months and he asked me what was I dreaming I said i can’t answer that because I don’t know what does that mean

  5. I dreamth laughing in a group,some are friends of mine and some are strangers. I laughed so hystirically on the stranger I don’t know if I was so amused to him because the reason why I laughed is so small,but in the dream it looked like that I knew the person well.

  6. I had a dream we were on a plane with a bunch of soldiers and me and my significant other made them laugh uncontrollably and I as well heard myself

  7. I had 2 laughing dreams in one week. One day short of being exactly a week apart.
    My 1st dream, a person was brushing his teeth and I looked at him through a face size’ window from the side. In my view, the bottom half was a mirror and I could see myself while I was looking through the top half at the other person. He however could see through the whole window space from the other side. He had weird funny hair, and I could see myself in the bottom half, had wacky weird funny hair too! He was aware of me, tryna hold his laugh in while brushing and looking at me every now and again. I was laughing at both our hairstyles and assoon as his laughter finally built up enough, to break through his brushing toothpaste foam, I laughed hard and woke up!

    My 2nd dream was 2 groups of people, almost like playing tag of some sorts. The opposite team were “the happy team” and I was part of “the angry team”. The happy team were chasing us to ‘convert’ us onto their side, while we were running around with clentched fists shaking our arms, it wasn’t a real, serious anger type thing, bt it was a way to differentiate the 2 teams apart. I was gripped from behind by some dude and we fell to the ground. He then stuck his fingers in my neck, tickling me senseless!
    I woke up laughing and my neck-muscles in a small spasm, as what we do being tickled there..

    My laughing dreams doesn’t really fit any descriptions, of hearing people laugh, or being laughed at ect.. so I’m curious as to what it might mean.

  8. Last night, I dreamt that I was in a car with Jack Black. He was sitting in the front, passenger side and I was behind him. His seat would not stay in place and when it moved up – almost squishing him in the front – I laughed at it, which literally woke me up (I woke myself up from laughing).

  9. I’m really afraid…I saw people laughing at me….may be due to my insecurities…but I still feel a group of people wants me to fail in life….I’m soo frightened of this thought

  10. My dream was diifferent, From majority of the lists of explainations listed… My dream was about the obursting of laughter, That I couldn’t stop, But recognizing that i was in an outburst… Nevertheless the dream kept repeating itself… As if I was in between dimensions and the repeated dream kept on-going till I finally realized what was hapening… I finally hit the pause button after replay kept on going till I understood?!

  12. Nikita Scoble on

    So I dreamt that this guy who has a crush on me, did a hilarious movement by imitating someone else and I laughed, and I couldnt stop laughing. And everyone was looking at me weirdly but I fell on the floor laughing, and the guy who has a crush on me, just smiled and kept doing the imitation. I woke up laughing hysterically and smiling.

  15. I dreamt for two nights in a row that there were children Messing with the garage door opener and the sound of the garage door opening and closing kept getting louder and louder and i could also hear children laughing louder n louder jumping up and down on my bed all around my head and
    could actually feel the bed moving. The crazy thing is that right now I’m currently living in a garage that is a fixed up as a nice living space for me while visiting my daughter in California and I currently sleep in here and use the garage door often it was exactly the garage In my dream and the way it is set up for me right now . It scared me and I woke up literally shaking . This happened same dream two nights in a row. What does this mean

  16. I write out my dreams to the best of my ability when I have them. The first part of this dream contains the laughter.

    In a theatre.
    I was in the front room with someone.
    People in the audience started laughing when I was making movements.
    Realised that my shadow was being projected onto a window behind me by a light in the room.
    Kept making the audience laugh for a while.
    Someone was in there with me.

    Left the box..
    Sat in the chairs about mid way up the cinema.
    A presentation came on.
    We had a leader.
    A female leader.
    Talked strong and confidently.
    I wasn’t serious enough.. Maybe sounded to much like a clown, asking silly questions or something.
    She called in security which came into the theatre in riot gear. Dragged me out the back door of the cinema and through some halls, knocked some of my teeth out.
    I was then returned to the cinema.
    It was around this moment I realised it was like a cult that we were stuck in.
    Sat in the back row.(was like shamed and scared to sit with people – nobody seemed to care – or were afraid to show care)
    Was trying to talk/complain to people but was slurring really bad because my left molars/teeth were all jacked up.
    An old friend came and sat next to me all casual.. Like “ahh, you got your teeth knocked out aye?”
    As I was talking to him my speaking ability came back clearly.

  17. In d dream, everyone was waiting for d arrival of something with happiness, I felt so happy and something in me said it is time and I woke up. Please what is the meaning????

  18. I had a dream I was sitting on a bench with my inspirational sportsman’s, Anthony Joshua. We was just sitting relaxed and chilled talking about just general things in life and we was both laughing with genral banter. I felt calm, relaxed, myself and inspired before he then left and I woke up. What does this mean???

  19. I had a dream last night of a girl, a girl I really like. She was floating in a swimming pool and laughing with joy looking beautiful and joyful. What does this mean?
    (It is a girl I really liked and wanted to be with her; she cut me off when I told her how I felt about her so we not close friends anymore.) What this dream mean tho?

    • I think it means that she is not ready for a relationship and prefers to remain single and joyful like young girls are. Just respect her decision and go on with your life. I know it may sound difficult but it’s better to stay with someone that wants the same thing than stay with someone that doesn’t.

  20. I woke up found myself laughing out loud… And I freak myself out… But It feels so good I wake up with a laugh I dont even know why and whats my dream about.

    • was in a kinda dream loop where I was dreaming about waking up in the morning and in one of the dream loops I woke up from a dream i was laughing in . when I really woke up I am full of energy and positive feelings.

  21. My dream didn’t really fit these exactly so I’m still unsure. I had a dream that I was in a car with my fav artist/celeb and we were just hangingout in the backseat. He was looking out the window while the car moved (don’t know who was driving) and I was looking at him. Eventually, he turned to me and asked me “What?” I said “Nothing” while smiling at him. Then I laughed at him and laughed at me, it was a gentle laugh like a giggle. It seemed like a happy dream but I don’t know what it could possible resemble. Lately, I haven’t really paid attention to any type of gossip or anything he’s been really up to. I’ve seen him perform live a few times and he noticed me once (about 1.5years ago). but I’ve never actually met him. Wpuld mean a lot if you could get back to me woth this! Thank you.
