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....

analysis of a dream
Julio dreamed: “I dreamt that my tongue itched a lot and I could not alleviate it. I tried to scratch it with my teeth but the taste buds, which were like enormous pink pimples, popped in my mouth, leaving a horrible bitter taste. I looked in the mirror and was shocked to see it so purple. It was a very stressful dream that left a bad taste in my mouth when I woke up.”
The tongue is strongly associated with the act of speaking. In Julio’s case, the dream was a warning for him to stop lying. At the time of the dream, Julio had problems with some friends because of his tendency to lie and talk badly about them. His unconscious was warning him of the “dirtiness” of his tongue and that he should solve it as soon as possible. The bad taste in his mouth is a reflection of the problems his attitude could cause.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

If your attitude was sad in the dream, perhaps you need to reconsider your attitude towards that person and what they represent to you. For example, ask yourself if you need to be more polite, kind or unselfish if these are the qualities you associate with the person.
If the vision was of your own grave, this suggests problems you need to dig your way out of; if a grave is neglected, this is a reminder from your subconscious not to take your health or the good things in your life for granted.
If the tombstone was of someone you knew or loved who has died, you may also simply be experiencing a sense of nostalgia for those happy days when you could pay them a real-life visit. If, however, the person is not dead, this could be a warning that your relationship is in danger of dying unless you concentrate on keeping it alive in real life.
If a vault appears in your dream, this suggests a more tentative approach to change; in older cemeteries it is possible to peer into family vaults to see the coffins, so perhaps you are aware of the need for change but are not yet able to make a clean break with the past.
If you had to visit a mortuary in your dream, is this a sign that you do not want to let go of the past? Do lingering feelings of guilt or regret remain? Or has the past caught up with you? If you dream of your own coat of arms and can see it on a tomb or monument, this reflects a desire to rise above a perceived station and to be accepted by those you incorrectly assume to be your superiors. A common nightmare is to dream of being buried alive. This may be a symbol of guilt or it may suggest a need to move away from a bad influence that is threatening to overwhelm you.
