Common Dreams: Falling

Professional Dream Analysis Consultations

Your question: Falling

“I always have dreams that I am jumping off a wall but it never ends. What does this mean?”

Falling can represent being or feeling out of control, especially if you’re free falling in the way you’ve described. However, the fact that you consciously chose to jump off the wall in the dream, could represent that you  are aware of a decision that needs to be made. Perhaps there is a choice which can be made freely to see what happens, a bit like a leap of faith.

Falling in a dream is not to be confused with a “hypnic jerk”, the spasm you feel when you are just falling asleep.  This can be caused by a number of different things, but stress can be a common reason.
