DREAM DICTIONARY - Clap :

Dreams use images rather than words. Try translating symbols into words and phrases which are linked by association. Once you have done that the dream may make more sense. For instance, "clapping" in a dream may translate into the phrase "encouraging" because if you "clap" then you are trying to encourage someone. This word "encouraging" is much more easier to make sense of. Ask yourself if the word "encouraging" features in your thoughts right now. If it does write down a phrase which features that word such as "I have been trying to encourage my son in his new job. He is lacking confidence and so if I praise him it may help him". Clearly "clapping and applauding" is a metaphor for her "encouraging" her son.

Look through the list of keywords and phrases below and think how you might be using them to describe your feelings right now. These words and phrases all link by association to this symbol.

KEY WORDS : well done!, delighted, enjoyable, thanking, encouraging, dramatic, more please! a deeply inspiring moment, proud of yourself, pleased with themselves

EXAMPLE DREAMS

Example dream : A dream where everyone is applauding her husband took place the night after the dreamer had a break through with her son. Things had nearly fallen apart but the dreamers husband helped mediate and everyone ended up happy as her son fell asleep in her arms. Applause was a recognition of her husbands magnificent intervention (worthy of applause). Overall the dream seems to have caught this feeling "My son fell asleep in my arms last night and we seem to have been getting on better than ever. It was all down to my husband and his help." (he deserves a round of appplause).
Example dream : A dream where everyone is applauding saying "wow they really love each other" linked to the dreamers thoughts about her ex. She was thinking how they got on with each other and were soul mates. After having a break from relationships she was now ready to start dating again and even thinking about dating her ex again. What could the applause symbolise? She felt like it was a deeply moving and inspiring moment worthy of a round of applause.
Example dream : Being applauded in a dream linked to the dreamers decision to challenge herself and start taking risks - she decided to tell a man how she had feelings for him. This was a big change for the dreamer - something that she would applaud herself for making.
