What About When Artwork Falls?

Okay, we already know what it means when the picture is of a person. But, what is the spiritual meaning of a picture falling off of the wall when it’s a painting, drawing, or artwork? There can actually be some surprising meanings!

First, you may want to pay attention to what’s in the actual artwork. For instance, do you have paintings of boats but haven’t been boating in a long while? It might be a message from the divine to rediscover an old hobby you might find new passion in.

Keep in mind, it may not necessarily be what’s in the photo, it could be a message to explore taking up drawing or watercolor painting! If you cannot connect to a message in this way, you may to research the artist’s life further. For example, maybe it’s a print of a work of art by Monet. If you explore his life you’ll find he didn’t really start painting with great success until he was in his 40s after his wife passed away. You might take this as a bit of inspiration to where you are in your own life currently.

Secondly, a work of art falling off the wall could be a reminder to shake up things in your environment. Is the style in your home a little dated? Sometimes adding in new decor can really improve the energy in your living space. New energy around you externally ultimately leads to new energy in your life internally and a change in perspective. Don’t wait until the artwork literally throws itself off the wall in desperation to make a change. Keep things fresh, both inside and out!

What If It Was A Picture Of A Place?

You may be wondering, what does it mean when a picture falling off the wall is of a place? Well, the message is fairly clear – you need to pay attention to this place for some reason. What significance does this place have in your life?

Most importantly, look at how you feel about this particular picture of a place. Does it bring up good or bad memories? If it brings up bad memories, it might be time to let the picture go altogether. Don’t allow space in your home or life for things that bring about negative feelings. If it brings up good memories, what ways can you further explore this?

Interestingly, I had an experience with this one personally. Admittedly, I am a Francophile, but more specifically I love everything dealing with Paris. I had artwork of cafes, photos of travels to Paris, and French words in artwork, you get the idea. Then, within a few weeks I had several of these pictures fall from the wall. It got me thinking about how long it had been since I went to Paris. So, I felt inspired to plan a trip there and ended up meeting some very dear lifelong friends.

Alternatively, if it’s somewhere you can’t travel to or no longer exists, you may want to research it and explore more into its history. If it’s a fictional place, like artwork of an idyllic stream or forest setting, it might be a message to find a way to get grounded and back in touch with nature.

If it’s a picture of a fantasy world setting, look at how you interact with your imagination. Are you living in a dream world? Or, do you need to get back in touch with your childlike wonder with the world?

A religious picture or icon might be seen as a representation of our faith, so it can be meaningful to have this visible in our space. So, what does it mean when a religious picture falls off the wall?

From a spiritual perspective, this can certainly be a message worth paying attention to. This can certainly leave us feeling unsettled! Some people interpret this as a sign that our faith is being tested. Alternatively, it could symbolize that we are not living up to our full spiritual potential.

So, you may want to take some time to ask yourself how you’re currently feeling about your relationship with religion and spirituality. Do you feel as if you have lost the faith? Have you been neglecting your spiritual path recently?

It’s also important to pay attention to how you acquired this picture. For instance, is that picture of Jesus you have passed down from your great-grandmother? It could be a message to pay more attention to your relationship with her. Or, maybe even some of her spiritual beliefs.

Whatever the interpretation, it is clear that religious pictures can hold great meaning for us. As a result, their presence (or absence) in our lives can be somewhat significant.

However, there is something else that’s worth considering that’s often overlooked! Make sure to check the back of the picture frame! That’s right, sometimes other photos or information is stored behind the back of another. And, you’re meant to pay attention to it for some reason.

For instance, I actually had this happen to me. My third grade school photo kept falling off the wall. Turn out, whenever my mother had purchased this school photo, she reused an old photo frame. Because she wasn’t sure what to do with the old photo that was previously in there, so she just slipped it behind the new one. It was of an old relative who recently passed away! I took the old photo and put it facing out in honor of the recently departed. And, what do you know, the picture never fell off the wall again!

So, pay attention to what might be behind your pictures as well!

Change and transformation can be uncomfortable at times, but it can be a good thing in the end! Even if it doesn’t always seem like that.

For example, let’s say your wedding picture keeps falling off the wall. Meanwhile, you’re having marital problems, you’re fighting with your partner a lot. It continues on until you even go into a separation. Maybe they even block you and you can’t get in contact with them again! For the record, this story is actually based on a true story.
