Ninety percent of the time when you are falling asleep you will have a dream that you are walking along a cliff and you accidently slip and fall off the edge and it seems like you are falling forever.

The dreams started to go away and it seemed to get better after that.
Dreams are a mystery on how they work. No one really knows how they work and how they make such a big impact on our lives. The more you think about dreaming the weirder the dreams seem to be. Writing down your dreams is the best way to think about your dreams, try to forget about your dreams, or think of ways you can have more of the dream. I have heard if you start to fall in your sleep to not worry because you cannot die in your dreams, and if you do, you die in your real life.
