Ever been jerked awake from your sleep right as you were dreaming that you were falling?

It's a crazy-weird feeling and there's actually a reason why you may be experiencing that unsettling sensation in your sleep. 

If you are feeling like you're falling through the air whilst you're snoozing, it's likely because you are currently experiencing a loss of control in real life.

Before your head hits the pillow you would have probably been feeling insecure or unable to get a situation under control.

Other dream experts say that it also may mean that you're suffering from too big of a workload and are unable to carry on with the workload. The sensation of falling is in response to you trying to let go and ease the burden.
