Many people dream of the end of the world and get really scared, assuming they’ve previewed a coming reality, but, of course, dreams are symbolic. Here’s a short one posted to the one-day dream forum last month, followed by my interpretation.
“I’ve been having constant dreams about aliens arriving, and/or aliens influencing our lives. I see end of world, panic, spaceships. But when I wake up, it somehow gives me a sense of beginning.”
You are dreaming of the end of the world as you know it – some aspect of your own private world or being that is coming to an end. No wonder you wake up with a sense of a beginning. We can only grow and change in the world for the better by ending some things so new things can begin. End old attitudes, so new attitudes can begin. End old personal world perspectives so new ones can begin.
And those aliens? Easy – parts of your being that you have alienated are coming back on board. You mention panic, so your dream suggests that a panic situation in the past caused you to dissociate from certain feelings or emotions and send them into your personal outer space. Because things are changing in your world now, you’re confident enough to face the old sense of panic and integrate these feelings into your being as you step into the future a more confident, calm, (unpanicked) person. Congratulations!
