I have experienced this many times; the feeling of falling in my sleep.
Sometimes it’s after an hour within an hour after I have fallen asleep, others when I’m drifting in and out of sleep. It is recurring. I guess because we all sleep every day.
But is there a spiritual meaning behind this? In this post, I would be discussing:
- The spiritual meaning when you shake in your sleep.
- The spiritual meaning when you feel like you are falling when you’re asleep.
Before you start, save this article about the meaning of sleep talking.
Spiritual Meaning of Shaking in Your Sleep
Life shakes us in different ways. Sometimes we would face our biggest challenges, which would leave us feeling weak and helpless.
When you are going through difficulties in life and wondering how to overcome the many obstacles in your way, and you shake in your sleep, then take a message from the heavens.
The ones above are telling you that you can overcome even the toughest challenge the universe sends your way.
Every person has been blessed by the creator with some strength and resilience they can use during difficult situations.
When you shake in your sleep, this is a message from the heavens that sometimes the universe sends challenges to shake our lives up.
But our creator is there with us every single obstacle and challenge. Every tough circumstance you can handle because the creator made sure that you are resilient.
The shaking in your sleep is for you to know that you will get through the tough times, thanks to your built-in resilience and God’s grace and guidance.
Spiritual Meaning of Feeling of Falling While Sleeping
Many times I would wake up in the middle of the night because it feels like I’m falling off my bed. But when I wake up, I am still well placed inside the bed or even lying in the center of the mattress. It was just a feeling after all.
When you are feeling like you are falling off while sleeping, this could be because the heavens are telling you that something bad could happen to your possessions.
You could, for example, be swindled or lose money in a bad business venture.
You may have invested in:
- Real estate property;
- Stocks market;
- Small business;
And then, eventually, these businesses may turn out to be bad investments.
Something bad may also happen to the things you already own. Your house could be on fire or a burglar will get many of your valuables such as jewelry, laptops, cash, and antiques at home.
Your vehicle may also be involved in a major accident, which means its value will be lower or it can no longer be repaired.
Be careful as various circumstances could lead you to lose some of your hard-earned material wealth or possessions.
These events could be heartbreaking for you and your loved ones.
What Does it Mean When You Feel Like You’re Falling in Your Sleep? 7 Spiritual Meanings
1) Don’t be hasty
When you are feeling like you are falling in your sleep, this could be because the heavens are telling you to not hurry.
Many times we hurry things because of our busy lives and hectic schedule.
We hurry in:
- Making decisions;
- Getting in and out of relationships;
- Making a purchase.
There’s a longer list than the one above. After all, there are many facets to our lives, and many of them we just breeze through.
This means rather than taking our time to decide, analyze and listen to where God is leading us, we just do our thing without much thought.
The feeling of falling off while sleeping is a sign from the heavens to stop rushing. You don’t need to do things in haste.
You can take some time and be deliberate and mindful of the things you do. Even our creator did not rush his creations and took days to finish everything.
The message from the heavens is not to rush and not be hasty.
2) Victory is coming
If you have been working and wishing hard for something, then you experience feeling like you are falling off your sleep, then rejoice.
The heavens are telling you that victory is near.
Maybe you are working hard for a promotion at work. You could also be rendering more hours at work and doubling your income to buy an expensive item.
You may be working with fertility doctors to get pregnant or to heal from a serious illness.
Whatever your situation is, when you are praying hard for something and doubling your efforts to achieve your goals, then be happy. The heavens are telling you that victory is coming.
Whatever you are wishing and working hard for will soon come your way.
This is heaven’s way of telling you that your prayers, diligence, patience, and hard work will be rewarded soon.
Just wait, the ones above will give you the victory you are hoping for.
3) Be adaptable
The feeling of falling off as we sleep could also be because the ones above are telling us that we need to be adaptable.
After all, life will throw us many challenges. And the only way to overcome difficulties is to be adaptable.
We need to embrace changes because as the old adage says “change is the only constant in life”. Sadly, many people have difficulties adapting to the changes and during tough times, they can’t be flexible.
If you are resisting changes, or in a situation that’s difficult to handle, and you experience that you are like falling off your sleep, remember to be adaptable.
This is the heavens’ way of telling you how to maneuver the present circumstances you are in.
4) Love again
Have you been badly hurt by someone in the past? Are you so jaded that you don’t think you can love wholeheartedly because of a bad experience?
You may want to ask yourself these questions when you feel like you are falling in your sleep. This feeling is also the heavens way of telling yourself to love again.
There is no need for you to keep your heart locked when a new love is coming.
The ones above know that we all deserve to be loved but we need to let the person in our life to experience great love.
Consider this message the next time you feel like you’re falling as you sleep.
5) A small prize
Life is full of surprises and the heavens are sending you a small prize soon.
This is the message the universe is telling you when you experience that you are somewhat falling off as you sleep.
The prize is a small one. Perhaps a minor prize at a raffle, a small amount in the lottery. It could be a kiss or a hug from a partner or your child who isn’t affectionate.
The small prize could also be praise from a very hard-to-please boss.
6) Be consistent in prayer
When you feel like you are falling off as you sleep, then you may ask yourself these questions:
- When was the last time you prayed?
- How often do you pray?
- How do you pray?
- Are you honest in your prayers?
Experiencing the feeling of falling while you sleep, could also be because the heavens are telling you to be consistent in your prayer.
This means frequent communication with the supreme being and honesty in your prayers.
The ones above want consistency and honesty in your prayers.
You have to open up your heart when you pray rather than simply recite words without thinking much thought or without feeling them.
When you experience the feeling of falling while sleeping remember that the quality of your prayer is also just as important as frequency.
7) Love being alone
Many fear being alone. They jump from one relationship to another for fear of being alone.
If you are one of those who cannot stand being alone, being without a romantic partner, and you experience feeling like you’re falling in your sleep, then take a message from the heavens: being alone is also good.
Learn to relish and love being alone.
The Bible talks of single blessedness. This is a sign that even the Lord has specially chosen people to be single. You may be one of them or not.
What’s important is that you learn to love your own company.
Before you leave, read the meaning of dream about falling asleep.
