falling dream meaningFalling is a very common dream that most people have experienced at one time or another.

This dream may symbolize that you are having difficulty with letting go or losing control over some aspect of your waking life.

It may also indicate that you have experienced a failure that you are still upset over.

Here are Some Examples of Common Dreams About Falling:

Falling down an elevator shaft or flight of stairs:

Ascending and descending on an elevator or stairway often indicates your spiritual and emotional growth or recession. Going up and down in dreams often shows our own progress in our lives.

If you fall down an elevator shaft or flight of stairs this may mean there has been a rapid decline in your emotional or spiritual state.

It can sometimes be helpful to carefully think about your current life experiences to identify what may have triggered the dream. This dream may mean quite literally that it is time to “take the steps needed” to regain your position and continue on a more positive, upward path.

Falling off a cliff:

Cliffs are made of rocks and standing on rocks musically mean you are feeling grounded in your waking life. To fall from a cliff is a strong indicator that you are no longer feeling grounded or are on sure footing in waking life. Look for areas of your life where you are feeling unstable. Once you identify them thing of some things you can do to work toward gaining more security and stability in these areas.

Falling from a bridge:

Bridges in dreams often indicate transitions. If you dream you are falling of a bridge this could be a strong indicator that you are struggling to make a transition in waking life.

Ask yourself what transitions you are currently trying to make. Identify any barriers, fears or feelings about this transition. Is it a positive transition for you, or one you should reconsider?

By answering these questions you will be able to work through them and gain the resources and knowledge you need to make a successful transition in waking life.

Falling off a mountain:

Mountains in dreams usually mean obstacles or challenges that you are facing and are preventing you from reaching a goal in waking life. If you dream that you are falling off a mountain this may indicate that you do not feel you have the ability to make it to the top and are giving up on the goal.

Seeing Someone Else Fall:

Watching someone else fall in your dreams can be an indication you are worried about their well-being. You may be worried about their health or worried they will not be successful on their current path in life.

What have you fallen off of in your dreams and what do you think it means? We would love to hear about it in our comments below!

I keep dreaming that I'm going down a flight of stairs successfully yet when I go back up them I get to halfway and there's no stairs. Just a huge gap that I would have to jump and hope to grab the top of the other side. Everyone else can successfully climb the stairs. I'm the only one who can't.

I saw a man falling over a fence head first. I could tell by his body and clothes that it was my husband who has COPD and on oxygen at night. I think I am afraid he may die soon. our family usually has a premonition when some one in our family dies.

I dreamed I was performing a dance routine but I kept falling over backwards as if something was pulling me down. But I still kept trying and failing.
