How Dream Interpretation Saved Me

I had a strong suicidal tendency after I suffered a tragic car accident when I was 15 years old and the friend who was next to me in the car died instantly. When I was 23 years old and I was pregnant, my 18 year old cousin and my mother in law died in the same week, and after that I became so depressed, insecure and nervous that I started studying the meaning of dreams looking for psychotherapy

Falling Dreams

Dreams of falling are fear dreams; they are very common and often occur during the first stage of sleep. That is because dreams at this stage are often accompanied by spasms of muscles in the arms, the legs or even the whole body. These sudden muscle contractions are known to science as a myclonic jerk. The dreaming mind can interpret these muscle spasms as falling, and thus incorporate falling into the dream state. Generally the dreamer is awakened suddenly in this type of dream by a sudden jolt. Some believe that this is the response of the dreamer trying to prevent their falling.
