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.
