What Do Dreams About Falling Mean? Your Scariest Dream, Decoded
D espite centuries of questioning and decades of scientific research, we still know relatively little about the way our brains work. Although there is some debate about the function and importance of our dreams, they are largely considered to be a powerful portent of our unconscious thoughts. The interpretation of dreams goes back as far as ancient Greek and Egyptian civilisations, but in the 20th century, two predominant schools of thought developed. Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung both believed that our dreams represent unfulfilled wishes, while cognitive psychologists argue that dreams are more likely to be a representation of our everyday experiences, a way of processing our thoughts, feelings and interaction with others. Here are some of the most popular dream themes that people seek an explanation for. Flying: unlike most other common themes, dreaming that you can fly is usually considered to be a positive experience.
Flying dreams are one of a rare breed of dreams that most often have good meanings. Understanding the meaning of your dreams will depend on the context of the dream. Often, the dreamer is fully aware that he or she is dreaming. A lucid dream of flying without complications leaves you feeling strong, empowered, and on top of the world when you wake. These dreams suggest that you are currently at the top of your game and your future is looking bright. Falling dreams are also very common among dreamers. There are, however, flying dreams that include complications, and understanding those complications can help you to understand and resolve problems in your waking life.
