In order to find the exact meaning, the subject himself must be consulted by the interpreter to know what, in his view, the mountain or tree could refer to and what his aspirations, wishes, and desires are. Another possible interpretation is that the dreamer will fall down by committing sins or to where intrigues are awaiting him, especially if he had fallen on thins like ferocious beasts, crows, snakes, rodents, or garbage.

1. Falling suggests loss of control:
When you fall, you have no control and as a result, your falling dream is analogous to a situation in your waking life where you are lacking or losing control. Maybe, you are feeling overwhelmed in your work environment, in your home life, in school or maybe in your personal relationship. You have lost your foothold and unable to keep up with the demands of your daily life.
2. Falling suggests insecurity:
Falling in your dream indicates you are lacking any sense of stability, security, and confidence. Such dreams can signify that you are not sure where you stand in a special situation or in your relationship. Perhaps you are at risk of losing your job, your home or something else in your waking life. Such fears can make you feel that the ground is falling away underneath you. In addition falling dreams also indicate feelings of shame, inferiority, vulnerability, and low self-esteem. You are afraid of not measuring up to others’ expectations or to keep up with the status quo.
3. Falling suggests reckless behavior:
falling dreams may indicate your heedless behavior or poor decisions. In your waking life, you are headed the wrong way. And if you continue on the current path, you are going to hit rock bottom. Falling in your dream could be viewed as an analogy of your fall from grace.
4. Falling suggests sex:
Famous psychologist Sigmund Freud believes dreams of falling indicates that you are on the verge of giving in to your sexual urges or impulses. He thinks in such dreams you are lacking in discretion.
5. Falling is a result of physiology:
Falling dreams can be the result of physiological changes within the body while falling asleep. When you dream of falling, you may feel your whole body jerk or twitch. This sudden jolt is known as a myoclonic jerk and is sometimes strong enough to wake you up.
