I'm Falling

Falling dreams is quite common in the world of
dreams. Contrary to a popular myth, you will not
actually die if you do not wake up before your hit
the ground during a fall.

Falling dreams typically occur during the first stage of
sleep. Dreams in this stage are often accompanied by
muscle spasms of the arms, legs, and the whole body.
These sudden contractions, also known as myclonic jerks.
Sometimes when we have these falling dreams, we feel
our whole body jerk or twitch and we awaken from this
jerk. It is thought that this jerking action is part of
an arousal mechanism that allows the sleeper to awaken
and become quickly alert and responsive to possible
threats in the environment.

According to biblical interpretations, dreams about
falling have a negative overtone and suggest that man
is acting and walking according to his own way of
thinking and not those of the Lord.

Haven't you had that sudden little shock in your gut that woke you up from a falling dream? This golden, surreal visual represent that feeling well using a steep perspective into a chasm of glorious free-fall. I'm Falling by =HAL-2oo6 also comes with a nifty explanation of this dream/sleep phenomenon. ( Suggested by gjoa and Featured by IreneLangholm )

May I borrow your lovely work to accompany a poem on my blog? Happy to include all of your credits. Thank you.

I would love to use this for my song Falling Blissfully. The sound track is about us destroying ourselves by destroying the world we live in and feeling helpless to change it.  However, there is always hope...  Take a listen.

I love those dreams :3
I usually dream that I'm falling and that I fall in the "real" dream that I'm supposed to have. But I never die.
This is beautiful. :icontearplz:

Amazing Idea!! :)

All I can say is that this is beautiful.Really amazing work.I think as we age we lose alot of our imagination but every now and then someone creates something like this that forces us to think and remember what keeps our lives from becoming "stale" for me it would have to be these split seconds of pure "magic"that talented people share with us.Please,keep up the fantastic work.

That cliff reminds me off a dream I keep having... It's starts out with me sitting on a small wodden platform at the top of a cliff, then someone pushing it off. It ends up flying down and up so fast that I loose my hold on it and end up falling onto a beach, and whenever I wake up, I feel no different then I did in my dream; My hands hurt, I feel like I just fell on sand, and I'm shaking...

Very pretty :)

Wow this is a very good interpretation of, I think many folks' falling dreams. It sure is a strange thing. I can almost see myself in this composition, as I always have extremely vivid recollections of terrrible high mountains. Excellent :-)

i always have these dreams, and if i know i'll die when i hit the ground, i never seem to care, i just let the air fly through me. kinda emo i guess but if got to choose how i would die it would be falling from somewhere really high

Man I've never had a dream where I'm falling, but I've always had those jerks and sometimes when I'm just laying in my bed starring at the celing I'll have a jerk and I always jump up saying "What the hell was that!" Weird ain't it.

BeautifulWInd Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
I can remember back when I was little that whenever I had a bad dream I would do one of two things,
either I would "find" a cliff and jump off of it to force myself to wake up or I'd run up to my brain and give it a good kick. ;)

This is picture is absolutely gorgeous and I totally want his multicolored shorts. ^o^
The bottom half of the image makes me feel like I'm going to fall right into it.
