What does it mean when I dream I'm falling?

Dreams about Falling

Falling in a dream is a very symbolic event. We go from a high to a low point, and as a general rule of thumb, when we fall in a dream it tends to point to some kind of setback in our lives.

If you recently dreamed you fell, there is a chance you may have recently felt like you failed a project in your daily life. Or did something perhaps take you by surprise in a not so positive way?

When something goes “wrong” in a dream, your higher self could be giving your conscious self a precautionary message. You may be going through a situation right now that requires a new strategy, or at least a new perspective. Sometimes dreams signal the direction our life is heading if we don’t do anything to change things around.

The good news about falling in a dream – is that you may actually get to experience the “worst case scenario!”  Often in life we walk around feeling scared of what might happen. The fear of failure is often bigger than actually failing itself.

If we fall it’s not the end of the world. We get the chance to get back up again. Rising from a fall is a very empowering experience, and how we do it, is often the real test!
