Falling means moving from a higher to a lower level typically rapidly without control.
Dreams about falling may reflect feelings of inadequacy or a sense that one's life is out of control. It also indicates that one is holding on to a situation in life that is not serving one's best interests. Thus, learning to relax and relinquish some control could make one feel better. They are often associated with our hidden insecurities, social anxieties, or unstable situations in life.

The ancient meaning of this dream is that if one falls and one is scared, then one is going to undergo some important endeavors that could be a great struggle. However, it is likely that the struggle will eventually lead to material possessions. The dream is quite negative. If one is injured during the fall in this instance, one is likely to encounter hardships and loss of friendship. Additional meaning is connected with sexual surrender, and that one needs to feel more in control of one's life.
Often, in dreams about falling it is the impact of hitting the ground that wakes one. If one hits the ground and remains dreaming, it could indicate one's ability to confront fear and has been strengthened in a better position than one was before, mentally. The same can be said if one remains in the dream and is observing one's lifeless body on the ground.
Dreams about falling are among the most common dreams. However, their meanings are not common. For instance, dreaming about falling from the high or from the staircase, tall building or cliff, usually means one is worried about one's career, personal ability, property, status, and fame. Sometimes it suggests one will encounter setbacks or accidents and suffer losses.
Dreams of falling can be discouraged but it’s ultimately a good sign. A falling dream can indicate that one is holding on to a situation in life that is not serving one's best interests. Thus one's falling dream is analogous to a situation in one's waking life where one is lacking or losing control.
