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.

Back to common dreams.
I talk about common and recurring dreams like falling in my book Answers in the Dark: Grief, Sleep and How Dreams Can Help You Heal. The book aims to join the dots between our sleep, dreams and our mental health, specifically how grief shows up, even if no one has died. I explore some of the big myths of sleep, offer a Sleep Cycle Repair Kit including mindfulness activities as well as some top tips to help you decode your dreams.
