Falling or Flying


What’s the difference between falling and flying?

My intention?
My ability?
My landing?

Recently, I’ve had Grace Potter & The Nocturnals song, Falling and Flying playing in my ears and in my head. I can feel that both falling and flying are full of energy. Both falling and flying can be scary and unsettling and both can be exciting and eye-opening. So what’s the difference?

Fritz Perls, the founder of Gestault Therapy said this about that:

What if the difference between falling and flying is breathing?

Breath has the power to nourish and cleanse, to energize and relax, to ground and empower. Let your breath flow and you convert falling into flying, fear into excitement, panic into peace.

This week, whenever you feel the grip of fear, go to your breath. Do whatever you can to breathe into the tight, stuck places. Let the energy move rather than be held rigid.

Breathe and transform falling into flying.

  1. For a long time I used to dream about falling. I never landed, but they were very unpleasant dreams. Then I really concentrated on turning the dream-falling into dream-flying and I often succeeded. A couple times in dreams, my husband would be a huge flying bird and I would be on his back. Other times I simply flew on my own.

    Since I converted those dreams, I don’t dream about falling any more.

    • Wow, that is so cool! I love that you were able to convert your dreams! I have both falling and flying dreams…the latter are my favorites. ❤
