Reasons for falling into dreams

This can…. be related to relationships, the workplace, school, or family life. Falls can involve internal or external problems that have been neglected. Depending on the context of the dream it can…. target different areas that need to be analyzed.

Dreams of falling before sleeping:

A hypnagogic spasm is an involuntary muscle spasm that occurs when a person is ready to fall asleep. This phenomenon is named after the hypnotic state, the transition period between wakefulness and sleep. Hypnagogic spasms are also known as hypnotic spasms or sleep spells. … This may scare the average healthy person, but it is a fairly common occurrence. According to the American Academy of Sleep, there are many reasons why one experiences these disorders. If the person suffers from stress, depression, anxiety, sugar or caffeine overload at night. Hypnotic jerks can also occur during REM sleep

Types of dreams that fall:

Lose balance

Dreams of losing your balance suggest that the problem is within you. You are not stable at the moment and you need a foundation in your life. You need to find ways to be more confident in yourself and in people. Who was around you when you lost your balance? The location and the people around you can give you a clue as to what to watch out for.

Being pushed

Did someone push you? Could that person be the cause of being pushed to their limits? Where are you when they push you? Did you collapse to death? Are you working too hard? Do you feel like you are doing something against your will? How did you feel before and after you were pushed? If you don't acknowledge the person than it might suggest that you could be a nudge in life, or that you are pressuring yourself to push yourself. Usually when we can't see the person it can be repressed aspects of ourselves that we don't want to look at. This can be related to our shadow figure, the mask that we do not want to take off.

Lost grip

Trying to hold onto your beloved life in your dream is very common. These dreams suggest the need to get on solid ground in your life of walking. You could be in a position in your life ... you are not in full control and unconsciously it is affecting your path. You may want to explore different areas of your life where you feel like you are clinging, or if you feel like someone has the upper hand over you. How did the dream scenario develop? The use of symbols in metaphors helps us distinguish a clearer meaning.

Hang on

Clinging to a beloved life in your dream suggests that you are doing everything you can to fix a situation that you have no control over. This can be with your relationship, your friends, or your family. These dreams are usually very scary and unless you do not recognize the problem in your life of walking. We think you think you might be holding on to that, which is causing you a lot of harm.

How it fell

Remembering how you fell on the ground can suggest what needs to be fixed in your life. If you fall on your back it implies that you need more support in your life. If you fall on your hands it means that you need more than one hand with the people who are close to you. If you fell into the water it means that you are falling apart emotionally and you need to solve your problem as soon as possible.

Slip off

Slipping and plummeting to death is a scary experience. Slipping to death suggests that you will eventually "slip" into a particular situation that will cause emotional distress. Where can you regain your grip? Did you fall to the ground? What was its location? How did you feel when you slipped?

On the border

Trying to hold on to life on the edge of a cliff to save your life suggests the need to slow down and take one day at a time. Do you feel that you live on the edge in life? Do you make risky decisions, and therefore are you on the edge? It is very possible that you need a physical and spiritual foundation.

Landing on the bottom - This could suggest the end of some kind of your life. Something where you might need to get to the bottom of things. Do you feel like you could hit rock bottom in life? Could it be related to your job or relationship?

Reasons why it is falling:

  • Fear of losing your job
  • Not the leader with friends or business
  • Fear of your relationship
  • Not having control in a situation
  • Failure in love
  • Lack of trust
  • Ashamed that you wouldn't make the cut
  • You are not in control of your destiny.
  • Things are not going the way I want them to.
  • How did you fall?
  • Withdrawal
  • Spiraling out of control
  • Hitting bottom
  • Unsafe
  • You need a proper ground connection
  • Spiritual foundation

Positive changes:

If you felt positive when you fell, this could suggest a sudden turn in your favor. If you had the ability to land on your feet it shows that you will overcome the obstacle in your life. Falling down and then sliding to safety shows that you will find another way out of the difficult situation.

See others fall:

You could be witnessing the distress of other people around you in your life. Finding out who was with you, your emotional state and your location are clues to better decode the dream. If you feel helpless, it may mean that you are not in control to help others in distress.

Our thoughts:

Falling dreams should never be overlooked, especially if they are recurring. This dream could be unconsciously hinting at our insecurities and our beliefs in life. Although all dreams that fall are not always bad symbols, but indications for us to open ourselves to the change that is taking place. Sometimes we have to hit rock bottom before starting a new stage. Dreams of this nature alert us to be more aware of our actions and behaviors in our life. The famous dream analyst Carl Jung claimed that falling is a warning for being too tall in life, "keeping up with the Joneses." This would refer to the comparison with others as a reference point for social class, or the accumulation of material goods. Falling asleep would be perceived as a demonstration of socioeconomic or cultural inferiority. If you have trouble interpreting your dreams, you can also try to do some shadow work to figure out the central theme. Being more self-aware is not that easy without the right help. Dreams help us bring forgotten issues to the surface, but it is up to you to fix them. If you continue to ignore what could be troublesome in your life, then the dream will become more and more vivid,

I had a dream where I kept hitting my cousins for all the shameful things they had said to me, and then my cousin hit me and I begged my mother to take me to therapy crying with a path of destruction left behind. She was so happy with this part of the dream that she knew it was all messed up, and she finally agreed and we walked out of a big building with glass doors onto some kind of bridge and we got to the end and she said… 'Look where you're going, I heard that It's tight 'or something like that and I looked down when an explosion came out of nowhere and I could hear everyone's screaming as I grabbed my mom's hand and we fell in slow motion. I thought, everything is going to be fine since we are falling so slowly and I tried to lower my feet so that I would land on them ... a red car fell between us and screaming a man tried to reach ONTO as we fell and then he sped up and me woke up i guess b / c i didn't want to feel that pain.

So, I am going through difficult things in my relationship. I cheated on my boyfriend .. I feel really bad about it and he left me. Last night in my dream I was in a strange colored river? So somehow I ended up on this huge bridge and I was chasing my friend, who is a man. But then all of a sudden the bridge wasn't there and I slipped like a baseball player to the edge. Then I grabbed the bridge with one hand, slipped and started to fall. And I couldn't breathe, it was like someone was strangling me. I finally woke up. But I never hit the ground. Does anyone know what it means if you don't hit the ground?

So long ago I was adopted into this family where I found a very good girl to me and now I consider her my sister. I was adopted into a family with an abusive father and mother, now we continue to have the same dream of falling into hell together holding hands (No, we are not lesbians we are completely heterosexual and we are basically sisters) one night…. Natalie… told me she was… afraid… of falling asleep and I asked her…. why… she said that almost every night she dreamed of falling into hell and she saw our mother push us there… see her cousin on the way down (he had done something terrible to her and her mother in her past life)… Our mother kept telling Natalie that she did not deserve to live, and telling her that she was ugly & even more so, I only remember that she told me about a good dream. it was her and her ex living happily in candy country.

In my dream I see a completely different vision, but the same dream. I see that both of my parents (the ones who adopted me) told me that adoption was the biggest mistake they ever made, but that they were glued to me. But me and Natalie didn't hold hands, we were distant and far from each other, but still we fell. I have been trying to think about how to get rid of this terrible dream, I have tried to bless my house with a damn candle. And I'm not sure why we keep dreaming of hell. She is Catholic and I am Christian!

I had a dream in which I am in a hospital in the elevators after meeting a person from a job that I was fired from several years ago. She tells me she has problems in her life similar to mine and then I walk to the elevators looking for the non-staff ones. I see the fear reaction on the face of the man in front of me as the building shakes like an earthquake. Then the realization that the building is collapsing. I reach for the marble column to steady myself and then try to climb out from under it, anticipating being crushed by it on impact. A woman is falling with me and I don't recognize her. I am surprised when the impact seems delayed and I remember that I must be in a very tall building.

I have a very ill son with whom I had spent the night for the first time in months after agreeing to allow my former full control and custody for six months to try to stabilize his seizures.

I realized how I had grown in these months that I had missed. Too. I had two of my most important clients today, after the recent key contact changes in both, I felt like they were going to leave me shortly. What do you think needs attention: custody of my sick child, my employment situation, my recent divorce, or my brother's recent death from cancer, and my own surgical appointment next week?
