Flying Saucer

This suggests a change in yourself, or personal growth. It can also indicate becoming aware of something new, or some new aspect of yourself, one that you are not familiar with, and so seems strange or alien. For instance a change might be occurring in the way you relate to people or events.

Our mind has the ability to view our experience as a whole, rather than in parts. What we sense unconsciously in this way is presented to the conscious mind as images such as UFO’s or circles of light. Another way of explaining this is to realise that our conscious self is only a tiny part of the whole process of life active in us. There are amazing potentials in each of us that might only be glimpsed in stress situations. Occasionally this more powerful or bigger side of ourselves breaks through and is experienced as an alien, or great being. Because of the hallucinatory aspect of the dream process, and the fact that in dreaming we see exterior imagery as real, when this breaks through while we are awake, it is often difficult to accept the source of it as our own unconscious. See: Reaction to the unconscious;altered states of consciousness; space; spaceship.

The ball of light or fire: This is a common waking experience as well as dream image. It occurs when the person touches their sense of wholeness as described above. We see this mentioned in the description of Pentecost – the flame on top of the head – and may account for cases of people seeing flying saucers.

Example: ‘A flying saucer dropped a man on our lawn. He was seven feet tall and stood in a ring of light. The sky was vivid pink and a peculiar aeroplane flew over. It was the shape of a cross.’ Mrs A.

The circle, the light, the shape of the cross and the big man, are all symbols of the Self or the huge part of us usually unconscious. It shows an enormous amount of feelings and experiences are trying to surface from deep within you. They are shown as aliens because your present education and experiences are very different from what you are capable of and what you hold within you.

Willian James the famous writer on the mind wrote, “. . . our normal waking consciousness, rational consciousness as we call it, is but one special type of consciousness, whilst all about it, parted from it by the filmiest of screens, there lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different. How to regard them is the question—for they are so discontinuous with ordinary consciousness. Yet they may determine attitudes though they cannot furnish formulas, and open a region though they fail to give a map. At any rate, they forbid a premature closing of our accounts with reality.”

Example: I was sitting in a deck chair on a beach, with a female partner on my left, also in a deck chair. Behind us were another couple in deck chairs, and behind them yet another couple. So, we were in a line of three sets of two deck chairs. As we were relaxing on the beach, I looked up and saw an astonishing sight. A line of flying saucers moved very quickly across the sky. They were two abreast, and probably about 20 of them. They moved toward me, high up in the sky, and then out of sight behind me.

So, I moved to the couple at the end of the line of a deck chairs. I said to them what a wonderful experience it had been. It was the first time in my life I had ever seen something like that. They shared this enthusiasm, and told me that now I had seen a UFO, I would have many other sightings, and perhaps even encounters. I realised that this couple were also speaking from a fixed attitude. They had somehow classified the event into an already existing opinion they held of UFO’s being some sort of mechanical spacecraft holding aliens. This did not fit my own observation of the event. The things that flew over my head did not appear to be made of any type of metal. They had more of the appearance of living creatures. Also, I had the impression of flagella at the rear, like many living cellular creatures.

Example: At the time a big wave comes crashing in, a flying saucer-like object comes down and skips down the beach and stops at the feet of some people sitting at a picnic table standing in the surf. I sort of walk over there and see a miniature tank emerge from the shallow sea water whose turret turns and begins spraying a liquid on everyone around. I get some of this liquid on me. Everyone listens to my story sort of silently, then they ask me how I feel. I say I feel all right, but I am worried about what was in the liquid. This is an unusually clear dream. It is like I am made to tell the story in the dream as well as experience the events so that I won’t forget any of the details. I feel okay, but different, as if something potentially life-changing has happened to me.

Example: We are doing the dream dance. As we begin to spin faster and faster, it is as if we turn into a flying saucer and whirl into outer space. We come into contact with an awesome source of intelligence. Then we realise that we have never left the ground. What is really happening is that dancing together we are ourselves the higher intelligence, with a power of consciousness that none of us individually can withstand. When we stop dancing, we are left with only a vague nostalgia for a being greater than ourselves.

The ridiculous thing is that here we are searching the heavens for signs of other life forms – all the time seeking physically – but our signals were received two thousand years ago, and sitting right here with us is an ET. But we are so puny minded we cannot even recognise it, or conceive of it. It has to be mechanical or technological (thus our picture of flying saucer is as some sort of mechanical contact between far distant minds) – but the Christ, the part of us that is in contact with a cosmic mind or a great power of love is so advanced in actual life skills – in the real technology of the Cosmos, there is not even a need for a body. See Meetings with Christ

As an example of how our dreams create images that cannot be taken at face value:

Example: This morning I woke up and as I opened my eyes and sat up there was this alien creature there in front of me. I was amazed and felt wonder because it was real and solid and was trying to communicate with me. I felt so much love for this strange creature and its attempts to communicate even though I couldn’t understand what it was trying to say.

Then suddenly a switch must have been tripped inside me and I understood and knew the alien. It was my wife, and she was saying, “Tony, turn over you’e snoring.” I must have been coming from a level where my language centre hadn’t  yet been switched on and I was seeing my wife as a delightful alien.

Example: I saw the creature that had triggered the light to come on, it was a female humanoid alien; she was covered in fur, maybe a greyish colour. As I saw her she knew I had seen her and was very nervous and started to run away. I had the feelings that she had stood at the door seeking shelter, so I called out to her not to be afraid and I would let her into the house.

I did that and she came in and she was a very timid creature, and I felt she needed care and love. I noticed that her face and hands were slightly different to human hands – she had three fingers rather than four. I reached out to touch her breasts and she did not back away.

The dream was very impressive and I felt showed how I had accepted parts of myself never uncovered before. The three fingers showed how a very ancient part of me had been recovered.

Useful questions and hints:

Did I feel fear when confronted by aliens or a flying saucer?

Was there any experience of being lifted up or herded?

How would I describe the meeting with the saucer or aliens?

This interpretation is correct. Yesterday I was in deep contemplation, to release judgement, even toward people who don’t have conscience. In the night time I had a deep sleep and dreamed there was a flying saucer over the lake. The flying saucer was like a ball of light, but when I see closely, sometimes it flashes as 2 storey flying saucer.

    Hi Linda – Great that you got understanding from the Flying Saucer entry.

    The ball of light suggests that you will gradually absorb more of your Core Self –

    Some years ago I dreamt I knew a female alien whom I loved. The love was so intense that we gave ourselves to each other, to the point where I absorbed her personality with all its memories, and she absorbed mine. This felt like a very important thing to do.
