Have you ever been curious about the meaning of a dream you may have had?



What does dreaming about falling off a cliff mean?


Most of us dream every night and in most cases, you wake up and forget what you you had a dream about...or maybe you don't remember dreaming at all.

Sometimes you have dreams you remember quite well, they may even wake you up out of your sleep.  The funny thing to me is how we all have some of the same dreams.  How many of you had a dream about falling off of a cliff and waking up right before you hit the ground.  What about a dream of your teeth falling out? I'm sure we've all had a dream about fish!  Even those dreams of seeing a deceased loved one.  Do you ever think your dreams have meanings?

Now, there are plenty of different websites that would give different definitions of what dreams mean.  Many think dreams are full of symbolic messages that may not be clear to us on the surface. But, if we dig deeper and think about what is going on in our lives, we can usually come up with an interpretation that makes sense.

This is one definition I got for falling on  howstuffwork.com

You're falling, falling, falling... and then you wake up. This is a very common dream and is said to symbolize insecurities and anxiety.

This is a definition I got from Dreammoods.com about teeth falling out.

To dream that you have rotting or decaying teeth implies that you may have said something that you shouldn't have. You may have uttered some false or foul words and those words are coming back to haunt you.

At the end of the day, remember, your dreams are unique; no other individual can have your personal background, your emotions, or your experiences. With that being said, your own dreams can only be connected to your own reality.
