dream about falling what doe it mean?

it is no coincidence that the main philosophical academy of the ancient world, built in Greece between the 4th and 3rd centuries BC, was called the Peripatetic School ( Peripatetiké Skolé). 

The Greek noun peripatetikos refers to the act of walking itself, it indicates something itinerant, wandering and therefore the general action of the movement; and the Peripatetics (walkers, walkers) loved to define themselves as the main exponents of this school, from its founder Aristotle to Nicholas of Damascus.

And most of the great modern thinkers say in unison that the best thoughts they had while walking; therefore, walking has always been a source of great inspiration and refined thoughts , this action allows a total and complete immersion within the space of the category, crossing the surrounding areas it is able to create a deep synesthesia between moving, looking and contemplating.


Starting from our Pithecanthropus ancestors, our species has assimilated this action as consubstantial to its own being, walking has become something absolutely natural, simple and spontaneous.

But how to read this action from a purely dreamlike and anthropological point of view? The image of walking is deeply linked to the concept of movement, which is the main characteristic of this action; to walk means to move, to advance, to continue towards a path, a path.

Honestly speaking, it symbolizes the action of living as such, the relentless progress towards one’s own goal, towards one’s own aspirations or moral values ​​that act as a compass in the life of each one of us.

Life is continuous movement and walking is its quintessential metaphor. Consenting to this empirical law means facilitating our maturation processes, accompanying our physical or spiritual beings; furthermore, walking indicates the intrinsic potential of the dreamer to autonomously choose their own existential path, to autonomously decide the direction to follow, the paths to take.

Obviously, like any self-respecting dream image, here too we must pay close attention to the details that are in the background of our dream and then adapt the general interpretation from time to time to particular cases.


The path is the path chosen by the dreamer, it is the direction and the compass that he himself is following and that will lead him to change; the unconscious can paint the dirt road on which the dream is located in various ways and this depending on the moods of the dream traveler (concrete, earth, stone, asphalt, etc.). In any case, the path is an indicator of our choice, of the decisions made, for better or for worse, it is what gives meaning and an objective to the change undertaken and of which walking is a symbol.

Even the road, as seen, can have different aspects and characteristics, it can be, for example, an uphill road, a slope. If you find yourself facing an uphill route, it means that the dreamer’s life is heading upwards : it is useless to emphasize that an uphill route is a tiring, complex, hard and difficult route, which requires all the effort and concentration of the traveler, that is, great results require great sacrifices.

The dreamer is invited by his unconscious to do more to achieve his goals and results, which will not be long in coming .

But the climb can also be perceived as too strenuous for the dreamer, at which point one must question whether the path taken is the right one or not.


The descent facilitates and helps our progress along the chosen path; being in front of a descent indicates that all our work has finally been rewarded.

Especially after experiencing a difficult period, the descent presents itself as an opportunity to relieve pressure, anxiety and concentration, living everything in a more pleasant way.


The sea , understood as an immense mass of water, is again a positive symbol of our unconscious ; symbolizes all the psychic energy that is in our possession and that determines our paths.

Obviously, walking on a calm and serene sea is synonymous with great inner peace, on the contrary, a rough sea could reflect all the evils of our existence.

In both cases the sea has to do with our psychic resources that must be engaged to determine a new and creative path.
