times, as I'm going to sleep, I dream that I am walking
along the road and suddenly trip up and fall towards
the pavement. I always wake up before I hit the ground.
Why do I dream this?- J.H- London.
MEANING OF FALLING DREAM
Dreams about falling usually occur as you are
"falling off" to sleep. They may be triggered
by a drop in blood pressure, a movement of the fluid
in the middle ear, or a limb dangling off the side of
Some psychologists believe that these are archaic memories
from the time when we were tree-dwelling monkeys. The
ape-men that survived their fall passed on their genes
with the memory of the event. The dead ones did not.
And that's why so often you dream of falling but of
never hitting the ground.
As a symbol, falling highlights a loss of emotional
equilibrium or self-control. You may fear "letting
go" in real life. Anxiety usually accompanies this
dream. It may represent your insecurity, a lack of self-confidence,
a fear of failure or an inability to cope with a situation.
There could also be a literal interpretation. You may
have noticed something unsafe- a loose
stair rail, wobbly ladder or insecure window. Check
it out. The dream may be a warning.
FALLING DREAM - What do Dreams about Falling mean? Meaning of Falling
UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF DREAM ABOUT FALLING ASK YOURSELF:
1. Am I over ambitious? Perhaps you have 'climbed above
your station' and experiencing the 'pride before a fall'.
You may have to lower your sights somewhat and set yourself
goals that are more realistic.
2. Do I fear letting go? The dream may be urging you
to stop resisting an impulse from the unconscious. The
psychologist Strephon Kaplan-Williams suggests that
you should relive the dream in your imagination and
let the fall complete itself. In this way, you find
out what is frightening you. You 'get to the bottom'
of the problem.
Some sources claim that if you dream of falling into
mud then it means that someone has told lies about you.
Other dreams about falling forecast monetary loss.
