2. Dreams That You're Falling - You Need To Relax NOW!

Image source HealthlineIt's a weird one when you dream you are falling as you can actually feel your stomach go and it seems so real.  Sometimes it can even wake you up. The meaning tends to be that you are hanging on too tightly to a particular situation and you need to relax and let it go.

3.  You Dream You Are Bald - Helplessness

6. Dreaming About Someone - Lack Of Passion...

21. You Dream You've missed Your Train Or Plane

Image source OneTravelPanic dreams can be quite distressing and can cause us to wake up in a cold sweat.  If you dream you miss a train or plane and are left waiting on the platform or tarmac, the meaning is often that you are being weighed down by too many commitments but need to prove yourself confident enough to get through them all.  Take a step back and be realistic.
