What does it mean when you dream about a cliff?

Sometimes, standing on the edge of a cliff can represent that one has a broad view of something, or we might feel as if we are living on the edge. More often, it represents things like anxiety, fear of failure and the unknown, and taking a risk. We can also feel threatened, as when we are pushed to the edge.


A high, steep, perpendicular or overhanging face of a rock; a precipice.


Standing on the edge of a cliff could be a frightening but at the same time exhilarating experience. Dreaming about cliffs generally indicates that the dreamer has come to a point of heightened understanding and awareness. An increase in the level of consciousness may have occurred. Through hard work and perseverance, the dreamer may have reached a vantage or plateau of understanding.
