Dreaming of falling usually symbolises fear, the fear can be of a career failure, unsatisfied from marriage, failure from society, regret of some misconduct etc.
Falling in your dream is a very common dream, and everybody in the world would have experienced this dream at some point in their lives. The dream may feel very real and it can shock you in fear. But take heart it is just a dream and doesn't mean you are really falling.
To understand the meaning of your dream, the background and the context are pivotal, how did you fall, where did you fall, how deep was the fall and how fearful were you when you fell. These are some of the nuances that if, you recorded in your dream journal can give insight. Dreams of falling usually may mean that something in your real life is keeping you worried constantly. It could be a job or project or a test that you are afraid of, maybe you have taken the risk of going beyond your potential and now perhaps you are afraid that you may not be able to achieve the goal. The dream may also imply that some aspect in your real life is beyond your control and you need to take charge of your decisions.
Dreams of falling may suggest that you are getting into words or plots or a trap of someone who is perhaps taking advantage of you. It may imply that you are quite vulnerable and that your subconscious mind is at its job of protecting you. The dream can also suggest that your focus in real life is dwindled. With your focus shifted you may enter into unnecessary situations and that can pull down your reputation and hence the dream may be guiding you to be more careful in your real life.
Dreams of falling may also symbolise the fear of embarrassment or insecurity or lack of confidence. This can happen when you may be involved in work where you are not sure of how to complete it and you are afraid that your inability may embarrass you or let you down.
The reasons of dreaming can be aplenty, but considering the dream as a positive sign you can work on the aspects in your real life and try to take a new approach in addressing your fears.
