Do you have dreams about falling?


Do you have dreams of falling, like falling off a cliff or falling from a high building?

Gail had a dream once where she was driving her car, going fast, and the road ahead led up over a hill. But when she got to the top of the hill, the road suddenly ended and she and the car went flying into the air, to presumably fall to the earth far below.

I had many such “falling” dreams as a child, but as she and I talked about her dream the other night, I realized that I had not had a falling dream for years, at least one I can remember. I believe back when I had such dreams that I would always wake up before I hit the ground, thankful “it was only a dream.”

It seems to me that I read years ago that falling dreams had something do with having unresolved problems. Something like that.

What about you? Do you have dreams about falling? Did you ever? Please leave a comment.

12 years of elementary/high school, 5 years of college, 40 years of teaching high school – all of my dreams are about school! Every single night!

My falling dreams ACTUALLY turn out to begin my flying dreams with smiles and laughter!
Wish someone could tell the meaning of this. Anyone? Remember smiles & laughter 😃

No, I fall enough when I’m awake.

Yes, often, since OIF/OEF. Happens every few days but sometimes only once a week (on a good week).

Never had a dream about falling. Mine are much worse from my time in ‘Nam. They are getting less, but once in a great while I’m still there killing.

I am so sorry. My father had horrible dreams about fighting and being in the trenches in World War II.

Sorry the past comes back to haunt you and what you dealt with while there, and then what you had to greet you when you came back. (All gave some, Some gave all!)

Thank you for your service to the nation, and for me. I’m sorry that we as a nation and as individuals failed to honor you when you returned. I pray that you can sleep peacefully and restfully.

I’m sorry that it still haunts you. I was against the war but could never understand the awful treatment that returning veterans received. It didn’t make sense. You guys didn’t have a choice; you were drafted! Thank you for your service.

It’s amazingly God made us with a built in movie theater.

Would dream I was falling when much younger – but I would fly after I started falling.

The breaststroke got me flying all over the place. Too bad it WAS dreaming!
