Falling Dreams

Falling Dreams

One dream that is very popular is the falling dream. You might feel like you are falling from a building or from an airplane or from somewhere high in the air. Even though many people believe that you will die if you hit the ground before you wake up, that is not true. If you want to understand your dream, you need to understand what is going on in your life.

Loss of control

When you are falling, even in a dream, you have no control of what is happening. This can mean that you have something going on in your life that makes you feel out of control. Maybe you are in a job that is hard, or you have a bad relationship. You might have lost your way in everything life offers.


If you fall in your dreams it means that you can lack security or confidence and you are not sure where you stand in life. Maybe there is a chance that you are losing your job or that you are feeling like you are not good enough. If you have a lot of things going on in your life, then you might dream of falling.


When you dream of falling, it can be a wake up for you because of your decisions that you are making. This can mean that you are going the wrong direction in life or you are falling from good things.


According to Freud when you dream of falling it can mean you have sexual impulses.


Changes that happen in your body when you fall asleep can make you dream. This can cause you to feel that your body is jerking or make you twitch. The jolt can cause you to jerk and wake up.


If you want to interpret your dream, you need to see what is happening in your life. Have you lost control or felt like you are insecure? This can cause you to have a falling dream.
