Tell Me Your Wildest Dreams!
Every Wednesday I venture away from romantic/erotic fiction writing to interpret your dreams. Have a recurring or puzzling dream? Send it to and I'll try to shed some light on Wild Dreams Wednesday!

This Week's Wildest Dream:

"what is the meaning of dreams that make you feel as though you were falling off a cliff and sometimes you actually wake up because the feeling is so intense!"
--Maggie Dove

Cliffs represent an apex or crossroads in our lives, a point where we stand on the edge of new opportunities, career climbs, or an awareness/perspective of ourselves or situations. To dream of falling off that cliff expresses subconscious fears that we will not succeed in our quest, that we are afraid to fail at what lies ahead.


Wild Dreams Wednesdays interpretation by romance author/editor Lisa Logan is meant to be used for education and entertainment purposes only. I hope you've found this week's post useful! Stay tuned until next Wednesday, when we again delve deep into our Wildest Dreams. Sleep Tight!

Interesting. I've not had a falling dream in many years. In fact, I rarely dream anymore. I did use to have falling dreams every once in a while though. Wish I could remember when I had them so I could see what precipice I was on at the time.

Thanks!! It's been crazy around here and I'm still waiting to see if any "guest" characters want to appear on my Monday segment, but hopefully things will calm down around Film Making Central enough to where I can get back to the serious biz o' blogging. ;)

This is called a hypnagogic jerk. As you are falling asleep, your muscles relax and you lose the sense of gravity. Sometimes your brain interprets this as falling and jerks you out of it. (Some people believe this is a remnant from when our ancestors lived in trees.)

The part of your brain that likes to make sense of things makes up a story so that the feeling of falling makes sense - like you are falling off a cliff.
