Falling indicates that you are feeling out of control about something in your life. You feel that you are headed towards harm or destruction and have no way of protecting yourself. You may feel out of control about your job, or unable to control how people are reacting towards you. The circumstances in your life seem to be determining your destiny, rather than you choosing it.
Falling dreams are one of the most common dreams that people have all over the world, therefore it is a “universal dream”. In a recent study titled, “The Dream Motif Scale” conducted by Calvin Kai-Ching Yu in Hong Kong and published in the journal, Dreaming, in March, 2012, it was found that falling dreams ranked number 3 on a list of most regularly experienced dreams.
