The Meaning of Falling Dreams
The Meaning of Falling Dreams Dreams, interpreting your bad dreams, learn what they mean!  Find out now FREE! 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.

Melvin, what is the point of what you just explained about eye movement being rapid during sleep? Of course while you are dreaming, you are seeing certain things in the dream world so you would be making eye movements.

Instead of the brain warning you through a dream that you're going to fall off the bed, why doesn't it just wake you up or turn you over instead? I mean, that's like me holding up a match and a wig when somebodies hair is on fire.

General observation shows that dreams are strongly associated with rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, during which an electroencephalogram shows brain activity to be most like wakefulness. Participant-nonremembered dreams during non-REM sleep are normally more mundane in comparison

Melvin, lucky you. Falling dreams are very common and a lot of people experience them. I do agree that it has a lot to do with not having support especially from your family. I used to have them a lot but thankfully, they are gone now and I hope it stays that way.

That's an informative article. I do not have falling dreams on the past but some of my friends do. I have also noticed that those who have those kinds of dreams really lack support from their families particularly their parents and some friends.

I have had falling dreams before but that was a long time ago. I think it was just after I left school and started out looking for a job. It was a bit of a difficult time because I had no money and no one to support me financially. But when ever I had these dreams I always work up and never landed on anything.

Aidie, I do know fly dreams mean something good. What am not sure of is flying over dark countries. Dark doesn't really sound good. Maybe you might like to try They have a dream dictionary and I have used it for years now and always found its interpretations quite good

How about when you dream you're falling out of a high rise building and then proceed to fly and you dream of flying looking at various countries in the dark and they are dark. You do this for years and years, but you don't know what on earth you're looking for. But you fly over trees and mountains and oceans and more trees. Looking for something.

Been there on the bed thing. My brain has a evil habit of making me dream that I'm going to walk right off the bed. Well put that subconscious control you have over my body and turn me over! Never really had any falling dreams though, I've experience some crazy things but never a falling dream.
