The Meaning of Falling Dreams
The meaning of falling dreams is usually about structures breaking down or about a lack of support in your life. This lack of support could be emotional or it could be physical. Sometimes a dream that you are falling indicates a lack of support for your health or that your health is breaking down.
These falling dreams can also be about loss. The loss can be concerned with any area of your love, including a fear of sexual impotency, job loss, loss of reputation, or just about anything.
What height you fall from in the dream might also have something to do with what the dream means.
It is a myth that if you have a dream that you are falling and that you land, you will die. Although this is not a very positive dream, it is not a death sentence. However it can be indicative of a deep disappointment or a problem with your health. Many dreams are like clichés - if you have a dream about falling, take a look at where it is in life that you expect to “take a hard fall.”
If you land without hurting yourself, then you might find yourself experiencing a miracle in the near future. If you do hurt yourself after such a dream, then there might be some setbacks.
To fall from a medium height means a loss of prestige. To fall off of a chair or from a standing position means your subconscious may be picking up on gossip that is being spread about you or attacks on your reputation.
Yet another common meaning of a falling dream is fear of failure. Many people who have stage fright also have this dream.
Like the myth of Icarus, the mortal whose wings of wax melted when he flew too close to the sun, you may be in for a fall. Sometimes, the meaning of falling dreams is that you have become too arrogant or too confident in some way.
If you dream that you are falling and that you suddenly start flying, this is a very good omen that portends great success. To fall into water can mean financial stress. Most people wake up before they actually hit the ground when they experience a falling dream.
Sometimes when you dream about falling, you are actually about to fall out of your bed or you actually do fall. Your brain will send signals to the body that create images warning you of the dangers that you are about to fall, or relaying the information that you might be in danger of falling.
Sometimes, a dream about falling has to do with an imbalance of the inner ear. The dizziness and imbalance it causes creates the sensation that the person is falling and falling and can’t wake up. In this case, the cause of the falling dream is physical, but it can be distressing to experience all the same.
