An interpretation of ufo dreams

An interpretation of ufo dreams

This interpretation is from ""The Dream Interpretation Dictionary: Symbols, Signs, and Meanings" and is provided by J.M. DeBord aka "RadOwl". He is the author of several acclaimed books about dreaming, the host of The Dreams That Shape Us podcast, and is a moderator of r/Dreams, one of the largest dream sharing communities on the internet. UFOs and their occupants are an enigmatic dream symbol, with meanings ranging from fear to something inexplicable to an unknown part of yourself. Dreams about UFOs and aliens have physiological causes, too. A UFO in a dream is commonly a symbol of fear. The association is tied with portrayals of aliens as hostile, and the threat of death from above: missiles, bombs, nukes. Fears associated with UFOs range from fear of spiders, which can drop down from above, to fear of death, to fear of change. After all, encounters with UFOs and aliens would be life-changing experiences. See: Fear UFOs are “unexplained,” so the symbolism can tie in with anything you can’t explain, especially in connection with someone’s behavior or your inner life. For example, you can’t explain why you feel distant from your spouse, symbolized in a dream about sleeping next to an alien. The occupants of UFOs are known as “aliens,” and alien can mean “foreign.” The symbolism can refer to a foreigner or illegal alien, or it can mean foreign in the sense of strange, different, or outside the scope of your experience. See: Foreignness, Strangers For an example dream, see: Fisting. Perhaps what is foreign or alien to you, or what you fear, is something about yourself. An alien can symbolize something you don’t recognize about yourself. It might be something about yourself that’s outside your conscious awareness, or that you don’t recognize. Anything about yourself that’s highly repressed can take form as an alien, because it’s “alienated.” For example, imagine the homophobe who’s actually homosexual but deeply represses the tendency, then he (or she) dreams about his sexuality. It’s like encountering an alien. Aliens and alien planets in a dream can relate to feeling alienated or disconnected from everyday reality, or being in a situation you’ve never encountered previously. It can symbolize feeling isolated, alone, or misunderstood. The sexuality of aliens is ambiguous in our popular conceptions of them, and that association can be used in relation to androgyny and asexuality. Aliens are often shown with slender bodies and great big heads, and that picture can be used by a dream to tell a story about having a big mental life, a heavy emphasis on intellect. UFOs and aliens might symbolize a calling from within you to higher consciousness or deeper spirituality. The symbolism is created by the association between aliens and knowledge, wisdom, and intelligence. In addition, they come from above, usually, and above is associated with heaven. Dreaming about aliens, alien abduction or UFOs can be caused by called sleep paralysis. Basically, you wake up but are still dreaming. See: Sleep paralysis To be abducted by aliens can symbolize being taken away from your usual life and its everyday reality. Some “alien” part of yourself wants expression in your life and won’t wait any longer for you to acknowledge it. You are forcibly “taken away” by the unconscious mind because of an attitude or stance of the ego that won’t allow the process of self-discovery to unfold naturally. Such dreams can be part of experiencing a psychosis or badly needing to completely change your life and way of looking at it. People who repress their spirituality or have no outlet for it are known to dream about alien abduction. Aliens and UFOs are associated with beliefs, and beliefs are at the heart of notions about spirituality and religion. For some people, belief in aliens is like a religious belief, so it’s easy for dreams to connect aliens with other beliefs to create symbolism.
