Dream symbol Clown


joke, comedian, laugh, joker, circus, red nose, mask

If a clown appears in the dream, this may conjure up a smile in the first moment already mentally on the lips. Immediately one thinks with a circus clown of the laughter, which can distract from some worries and reminds not to take the life too seriously, but to regard everything with little more humor. At the same time, his facial expression sometimes betrays that bittersweet joy that life has to offer through all registers. The joker teaches not to take life too seriously and points to a bittersweet joy.

Since time immemorial in the history of mankind, there have been comedians and jugglers who are very shrewd and cunning, the so-called "mischievous".

The harlequin in his colorful costume, who makes the world laugh by pantomimic performance, mutely thus only with gestures and mimic, is particularly well-known already from the 11th century.

However, the other side of the clown is known from horror scenarios by Stephen King or has also been experienced in nightmares. Eerily, this mask with the mischievous, almost maliciously grim laugh can appear and possibly haunts one's dreams, causing panic and fear.

Now, what does it mean for dream interpretation to see a shawl face or a wrongdoer in the form of a clown in a dream?

General dream interpretation

A clown is committed to humor and is responsible for entertainment and fun. Masked he appears as also some magicians and it can be pointed out that one takes a look under the "mask" whether there is hidden an inconspicuous other side.

The general dream interpretation interprets with this that he hides his underlying real feeling and does not want to reveal it. That is why the clown as a dream figure also indicates sad affairs. It can also state that the dreamer is being tricked.

In dreaming women who are visited by a clown in their sleep, this dream figure symbolizes that they do not want to be a burden to anyone. They hide their "darker" sides by presenting themselves as sweet and funny as possible, so as not to be punished with love withdrawal under any circumstances. To mime a joker yourself in a dream can also mean that you do not feel understood by your friends and even experience humiliation.

An evil cl own in a dream may denote someone you think is trustworthy, but who is playing a false game with you. A sad clown describes a person, in your close environment, who is close to your heart but does not take your intentions seriously.

Dazumal old books of dream interpretation refer to the fact that the clown can predict an upcoming award. A mute clown in a dream symbolizes insecurities of the dreamer.

Psychological dream interpretation

Psychologically, dream interpretation sees the clown not only in the guise of a joker, but rather as an ambivalent being who walks a tightrope between laughing and crying. Insecurity is also interpreted here, as he conceals his underlying, "2nd face" through the mask. The juggler is psychologically interpreted as a symbol of not lived authenticity, artificiality or also dishonesty, towards oneself. The clown stands for the underdeveloped , inhibited part of the ego, which is afraid of being exposed and making a fool of itself in front of others because of this inferiority complex.

The dreamer is in a depressive emotional state, in which it is not possible for him to show his real feelings. The actions of the prankster in the dream should be closely observed, to be able to truly interpret all the clues. The task to learn is to go beyond the masquerade and all the tricks, to listen again to his intuition and to allow his real feelings.

Spiritual dream interpretation

On the spiritual level, we are urged to leave the dualism of thinking, in which we "unmask" ourselves, to show ourselves completely "naked" without pretense. On the other hand, the clown waves the fence post of serenity, indicating not to take life too doggedly spiritually.
