Question: Why do lots of people have the falling dream?

Keywords: ,

  1. I have absolutely no idea as to the true scientific explanation. Otherwise, perhaps this link might ease your curiosity a bit? 🙂


  2. I tend to have the dream I miss a step when I am falling alseep and my whole body jumps, but I don’t dream about falling.
    I am not an expert on dreams, but a researcher was interviewed about this here:
    It seems one reason people dream of falling is because of the changes in blood pressure, heart rate etc. that occur when we fall asleep, and this is transformed into a dream of falling.
    The more psychological explanation is that it’s a symbol for feeling out of control in our life.
