This type of dream often appears when we are in a position of great risk.

To step off a precipice is taking risks, since we do not know the outcome of our action.

Vision: Women often dream of Falling into the abyss. Falling off a precipice means that somewhere the “bottom is falling out.” People who meditate or have out-of-body experiences have a similar sensation when their soul returns to their body. Suddenly falling off a precipice: something unexpected and positive is going happen.

Depth Psychology: The dream is a symbol that you are in emotional distress right now and are searching the depths of your soul to find the reason. Don’t stop searching—it is the only way to get back on solid ground. It may also be a sign of your difficulty “letting go.” See Abyss, Cliff, Slope.
