Falling is symbolic of problems - its a metaphor . We say things like - "He is in for a fall!" "The price is falling". It can be used to express all kinds of feelings and its usage in dreams is pretty much the same as in ordinary language. Think of little connections. Has someone confidence been dented? Is someones 'value' in decline? Is someone not as effective as they used to be? Is someone upset emotionally? Has someone power been dislodged?

Falling dreams can also be linked to our feelings. If someone falls then how would you react? If you help it proves courage (which maybe something important to you right now)? Saving someone may show that the person is important to you?

KEY WORDS : failure, a bad outcome, eveything is going wrong, deteriorating, negative changes, defeat, break up with boyfriend, insecurities, worries, lacking confidence, vulnerability(see if you can write down some key feelings which feature these words or short phrases. If you can think of something then its possible that your dream is a symbolic version of this thought)


Example dream : A dream of falling from a great height took place after the dreamer was confronted by a girl who said the dreamer had been talking about her. Falling represented a fear that this could only end up badly. So the dreams meaning linked to this theme of a "bad ending" and captured this exact thought process "I am really worried about the next time that I see her. I can only see it ending up badly!"
Example dream : A whale which could have fallen on the dreamer was linked to arguments at work. The dreamer feared that he may have been drawn into an argument involving supervisors. The whale falling on him was symbolic of his fears that this argument could impact on him - that it could have unpleasant consequences. The dreams meaning then linked to this theme of "unpleasant consequences" and captured this exact thought "I do not like getting involed in these arguments between supervisors. It may end up with some unpleasant consequences."
Example dream : In one dream the dreamers fears he will be dragged over a mountain and killed. This was a symbol for his extreme work stress. He feared he would fail.
Example dream : Falling trees in a dream were linked to some changes that were taking place around the dreamer. The 'falling' trees were symbolic of these negative changes. Specifically the dream caught this exact feeling "I have been worrying about these changes at work and feel that they will directly hit me."

Example dream : A dream with a huge fall to a gutter linked to the dreamers daring mood. Think of the phrase "landing in the gutter" meaning that you end up humiliated on the floor. The dreamer was usually very phobic and shy. He would never do anything daring or dangerous. The huge fall into the gutter was symbolic of him waking up in a daring mood, he was more willing to take risks and so more likely to end up in the gutter.
