Have you ever seen a UFO or an alien in your dreams? Have you communicated with extraterrestrials, or visited other planets? Or do you have a vague feeling, perhaps even a memory, of having been abducted by aliens, or of travelling in a spaceship before being returned to wake in your own bed at home? Do you believe you can communicate, telepathically, with beings from other worlds while you sleep, waking up a little wiser or, alternatively, feeling a bit disconnected as if something is missing from your life? In summary, how do you feel about your alien encounters – are they real, or dreams?
They’re dreams, symbolic dreams. They’re about what feels alien or foreign to you. They’re about experiences you have had that were so strange or difficult to understand that they might as well have happened on other planets. These dreams can also be about experiences where you were so hurt, emotionally or physically, that you despatched your pain far, far away, beyond your senses, beyond your everyday memory, beyond planet-you, only to return in dreams in vague, non-human form. Children brought up in very strict religions often push natural beliefs and feelings they have been taught to believe are evil far, far away, disowning them.
These dreams use symbols that play on words. They introduce you to parts of your self or your life experiences that you have alienated, or they remind you that however far you banish certain experiences and feelings, however much you refuse to identify with them, they still hover, as UFOs – unidentified flying objects.
The experiences you have alienated may have been huge and awful, or they may have been small misunderstandings that you felt uncomfortable keeping on board.
Welcome these dreams, and set about interpreting them using the other tips in this blog, because they offer you the chance to have another look at what you have rejected, to understand and heal, and, finally, to take back on board and then ground a part of yourself that has been hurt and missing, and nurse it back to health.
