Dreaming About Falling? Here Are 5 Falling Dreams Decoded

It's fascinating what the brain can do on a subconscious level. Dreams tend to reveal what the conscious might either hide in its own protection, or just has not had a chance to process. Dreams about falling often signify a feeling of a loss of control.

Fear, anxiety, and trauma can create some of the most vivid dreams. When we feel like we're losing grip, we feel like we're falling into the pit of the unknown. To find out how to interpret your dream of falling specifically, look for clues and decode it using the five following interpretations.

Tripping And Falling

Use this interpretation if your fall did not involve heights. If you're simply tripping over something and falling, such as putting one foot in front of the other only to find nothing to stand it on, then your mind is trying to warn you. Your subconscious is telling you that you're losing your footing.

You might be worried about falling behind, either in life's progress or your career. This could also indicate anxiety over making the wrong move, especially if you're expected to take the next step in an event or task soon.

Falling Off A Building

The height of your fall could be revealing of the extent of your anxiety or the importance of a situation to you. Falling off a building can feel more like a nightmare but it often represents your fear of the unknown. You might have gotten as high as you could go with a plan and now you need to take a leap with uncertainties. You're afraid of the risk.

This could also symbolize a loss. Maybe you have lost hope or are disappointed in yourself because you've failed to reach a certain goal you thought you would attain by now.

Falling From The Sky

Falling out of the sky can simultaneously feel freeing and helpless. It's your mind giving up and asking to go with the flow. Perhaps you have just experienced a major life change and you don't know how to adapt. You might be so overwhelmed that you're simply putting your hand up now and let it take its toll.

You might feel free in letting the universe work the situation out for you in the way it sees fit. But falling into the unknown as such also reveals that you can't make a decision. You're basically in limbo.

This dream is usually an indication that someone you care about in some capacity is in perceived danger. You're probably worried about them and can't stand to watch them fall. You want to lend them a hand but you don't know how.

You feel like you're at a loss of control because you know you can't fix them and their problems. but you wish you could. This is a common dream when you know someone is sick.

This is a different kind of falling dream and might have nothing to do with your stress. This is a common scenario people report experiencing as they drift into sleep. It's a sensation is triggered by an involuntary muscle movement experts call a hypnic jerk.

It happens when your body is transitioning between being awake and slipping into the first stages of sleep. It just means that your body is entering deep relaxation to get ready for sleep but your brain misinterprets it as being in danger and wakes you up to defend yourself.

The Four Facial Traits That Make The Most Attractive People

Researchers keep on trying to unlock the million-dollar question: what makes a person the most beautiful? The media keeps on changing the women they show as most beautiful and we keep on changing our appearance and fashion in an attempt to keep up. But the question is, do we actually ever actually "feel" beautiful?"

Does it truly come down to a science, where certain traits deem a person most attractive or is beauty relative like they say? Let's find out!

The More Symmetry The Better

​Many experimental studies have shown that men and women both prefer faces that are more symmetrical. They even came up with ratios and masks that can measure the level of symmetry in a face, and by extension its beauty. Even monkeys have been noticed gazing longer at symmetrical faces.

But why? Well, science doesn't seem to have gotten that far. It could have something to do with evolution and our brains tricking themselves into thinking that a symmetrical face must be a sign of good health. Maybe we associate good genes with the more successful development of a facial structure.

Having "Babyface" Features

​The idea of the fountain of youth didn't come out of anywhere. There is a belief that people are at their most beautiful in the prime of their youth, where they've grown enough to have adult features, but haven't experienced enough to lose their innocence and be affected by the environment.

From this idea, came the "baby face", where large eyes, long lashes, a cute little nose, a small chin, plump lips, and rosy cheeks are desirable. These traits can either describe a baby or a supermodel but the idea is that they reflect feelings of warmth, trust and won't argue back.

The More Average, The More Relatable

People are actually attracted to faces that appear distinctly average. Yes, the more you look like the general population, the more attractive you can come off, which just seems ironic.

The reason some studies made this conclusion, is that teh more average a face is, the more they likely are to be a blend of genes A study, published in the journal Human Nature said that average faces might be a reflection of a more diverse set of genes, which we might subconsciously consider as stronger in fighting off illnesses.

Something About Getting Older

Maybe women seem more attractive with baby faces but forget about youth when it comes to women's attraction to men. Women might actually end up being more attracted to men who look older according to a study.

This idea is still evolving and has something to do with women finally having a place in the workforce. The more financially independent they become, the more they like older guys, according to the study. They even named this the "George Clooney Effect" which showed women that the more patient they are, the better their chances at finding a man has more status and resources due to being older.

Familiar Faces Per Genetics

Ask yourself how you feel when you meet someone who looks like someone else you love? You probably automatically take a liking to them just because they seem familiar, even if you've truly never met them before. You might even just trust them right away. In the same way, the more familiar a person might feel, the more we could be attracted to them.

Another study found that the faces we are attracted to are heavily influenced by our personal experiences in life, and probably nothing more. This theory says it's not because of genetics as even twins couldn't agree on who they found attractive. It just depends on who you meet and look at throughout your life and the experiences you associate with them.

Basically You Can't Win

Well, it turns out, even when you try to with science, you really can't define beauty. Some people are attracted to babyfaces, while some can't help but be drawn to older ones. Some people's brains attach symmetry with good health while others just want an average-looking face to continue their genes. So the message is, beauty is relative after all. I am beautiful and you are beautiful and everyone will be most attractive to someone.

Rather than focus on looks, focus on the person on the inside. You're here for a reason. This is your sign to get to know yourself better and unleash your potential.
