Posted:I was just thinking....It's common to have those dreams where you're falling helplessly but I was just wondering, because I always wake up before I hit the ground.

Posted:what about if you don't wake up?

like if you bounce, or you splatter and the dream continues?

The last time i had a falling dream... I started flying before i got to the ground! other dreams have continued "without" me!

Posted:It's almost always the same flight of steps I fall down, regardless of where I am in the dream! Think I remember them from school, it's only a flight of about 6 or 7 steps but in the dream I take ages to fall down them! It's really wierd when that happens. I had a dream the other night where I got hit by a truck and woke up.

I also often have extremely surreal dreams, where it's like I can recognise some bits of the landscape but not others, there are characters I feel like I know and missions i'm on e.t.c. it's all very strange. I like dreams.

Posted:I often dream I fall because of someone else, like in a car with someone else driving and we go over a cliff and there was nothing I could do to stop it. Most of the time though, we fall for a very long time, or I just cut to another dream,and still as my dream self I wonder weather we ever hit the ground or not. So kind of like a dream within a dream.

Apparently falling dreams are supposed to symbolise either a release, a recovery, pressure or curcumstances beyond our control... depending on the context though.

Posted:Careful you don't do it in real life! I deamed my primary school burnt down when I was six and then it was on the news in the morning that it had actually happened! Even my mum was unsettled by that premonition. I doubt anyone in my family would have believed me if I hadn't told them about the dream before they heard the news.

Posted:In all honesty I don't wake up. i hit the floor, (seriously good feeling) and carry on asleep. In fact my favourite dream involves me landing after a fall. It is almost orgasmic the whole body feeling of hitting the deck in your dream
hug


A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

Posted:I often have dreams when i fall, and i wake suddenly, just before i hit the ground in a sweat and all shakey.

Rather an odd feeling, not necessarily unpleasent, just very odd.

Posted:i dream of falling sometimes, sometimes when my eyes are open and im lying in bed. or am i lieing in bed with my eyes closed but dreaming my eyes are open, either way sometimes my entire room will suddenly rush upwards and i will fall away through the floor of the house into a black void. ive never seen the ground though so i always wake up before i hit it. but ive got a feeling its not there to hit.

Posted:that falling and dieing thing is based on a theory that if u dream u die, like being hit ny a truck or falling really far, u die in real life b/c ur body believes its dead. but markmark right, if u die, how u can tell someone "hey, i just dreamed it and it happened!"
i always dream my teeth are falling out, i have to keep my teeth clamped together to hold them all in, i heard that that kind of dream is about control or something. i also dream i have ro run, either to or away from something, but my legs wont move, have to drag with my arms. i fly alot to, but normally have to flap my arms alot to gain altitiude, then i can soar, or i just off a building or tree first, then i dont have to flap.

Yes! I called them 'weird 2 second dreams'. We're you're walking along and you suddenly trip on something, or a dog barks at you or something. I hate them at the time but once I'm awake I kind of smile about it.
