A dream where you feel like falling down, or falling into free space, is a common dream. Sometimes, when you try to fall asleep and are on the verge of doing so, you might feel like you are free fall dropping down. You may even be jolted awake, and then upon assurance that you did not physically fall down, you return to sleep. How do you interpret this falling dream? Ask yourself if you are burdened by many tasks to do daily, or if you are overloaded at work. If you are and have dreamed of falling, it may imply that your burden is very heavy and you feel like you’re falling down. The act of falling should be accompanied by the plan to get up again.
