    Yes! There have been times, mostly when I'm drifting off to sleep, that I've jerked fully awake because I had the sensation that I was falling or about to fall and I stopped myself from doing so. It's a really weird feeling, but it's totally normal.

    This is a very common thing. Running and not being able to move is another.Some even have dreams where there are falling out.Still others have a feeling of being awake with a demon sitting on their chest. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_paralysis#Sympt... your not crazy just dreamin

    Think that is pretty normal. Have you noticed that you never hit the ground? Heard from someone that if you did then you would die, probably from heart attack or something... but we never do so all ok... and if we did then we would never know!

    yeah this happened to me...it's like a "BAM!" feeling--best way i can describe it.

    someone once told me that our spirit was hovering above our body by a string and the feeling we get that jolts us awake is our spirit slamming back into our bodies.

    but i don't think i really buy that, lol.

    haha, when they happen to me i've usually just tripped over a street curb or something in my dream.

    they're the strangest thing, huh?

    Its a very common phenomena called a hypnic jerk, possibly caused by the body thinking it is falling.

    I think pretty much everyone gets them, they're pretty irritating!
