Dreams in which you feel happy and loved allow you to focus on positive experiences in waking life. You may have woken from a dream laughing, or with a feeling of happiness or euphoria, without being able to explain why. While in dreams, it is much more common to experience negative emotions than positive ones, dreams in which you experience positive emotions can tell you a great deal about how you feel about yourself and your life.


A dream in which you are feeling extremely happy and content can be a sign that you are feeling that way in waking life.

However, you may dream of being happy when you are, in fact, feeling insecure, anxious or sad when you are awake. In this case, your unconscious mind may be trying to show you how you can make yourself happy. Pay attention to what is making you happy in the dream. That can be the key to how you can achieve happiness in real life.

Flying Dreams are often associated with feelings of joy.


If you dream that you are falling in love, or you are in the early, passionate stage of a romantic relationship, you may need more passion in your waking life. If the person you fall in love with in your dream is your partner in waking life, your dream may be a sign that your waking relationship is also filled with passion. However, it could mean that your relationship has been getting dull, and you and your partner need to revive the romance and passion that you once shared.

If you dream that you are in love with an acquaintance, friend or colleague who you do not think of as a potential romantic partner in waking life, you may unconsciously have feelings for this person but ignore these feelings when you are awake because you think they are inappropriate. Your dream provides you with the opportunity to consider these feelings without causing any harm.

On the other hand, it is possible that the person you are in love with in your dream represents a quality that you admire and wish to adopt.


A dream in which you hear or tell a joke can be a way for your unconscious to get you to pay attention to a serious issue in waking life. Does the joke contain a serious message?

If you find yourself laughing when you wake up from a dream, try to remember what it was that made you laugh. You may realize that it wasn't very funny, but it was very important.


Some dreams can provide you with a sense of freedom and release. For example, you may dream about leaving your job or your household responsibilities. Such a dream may be a form of wish fulfillment, a safe way to escape from the dull routines of your waking life. However, it can also be a message that you are in a situation that is suffocating you, and you need to make a change in your life.
