Suggests a change in yourself, or personal growth; 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 difficult to accept the source of it as our own unconscious. See: 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.

I had a dream last night that I was my little brother and 2 sisters , there was a little white ufo circling around . The Ufo suddenly opens and inside of it there’s 4 eggs . what does that mean ?

    Hi – It would help you to understand your dreams, if you would read – http://dreamhawk.com/news/summing-up/ and also http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/features-found-on-site/ which has so much information in.

    Nothing can replace your own ability to understand your dream. With a little effort you can do this by practising what is described in – http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPersonor http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/getting-at-your-dreams-meaning/


    Alexander – Being with your brother and sisters suggests that they are very much a part of you, and so in the dream you are experiencing something that is your own and their view of things – a child and an adult view of the world.

    A UFO in dreams does not mean a spacecraft from a totally different world, but something within us that until now has been beyond your comprehension.

    To explain what I mean, I have four sons and a daughter. Some years ago three of my sons and I were playing with a toy made with a looped string going through two holes in a button. By pulling the string apart and then releasing it and then pulling again the button spins incredibly fast. Except this was factory made, and when it is pulled correctly gives out sparks.

    My youngest son was having difficulty just being able to pull the strings to make it spin. The son who was two years older being about 8, could make the thing spin, but my older son could do the whole thing with massive sparks. As I watched I realised the enormous amount of information and use of our body we take in as we move through childhood to teenage. My youngest son, who is intelligent hadn’t yet learned body skills. The son two years older had those skills but still couldn’t get the speed. My teenage son, I realised understood the technology of the toy he was handling.

    We are all like that in our lives. Many, like my youngest son cannot manage the simplest tasks. The next step is to start to become aware of the deeper mystery of living. The massive step is in understanding, becoming aware of the working of life, its technology so to speak, and starting to use it.

    The youngest among us cannot understand the simplest of life events. At the next level we begin to understand but cannot get it to work. The ‘teenage’ level has seen, become aware of how it works and has mastered its workings.

    A long explanation, but the UFO is something that you have never met before, so you do not understand what it is all about as far as you are concerned. But the dream didn’t stop there for it offered you understanding of the next level – the eggs.

    You were offered basic insight into a new level of understanding. Please read the following to get more information – http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/levels-of-awareness-in-waking-and-dreaming/and http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/going-beyond/

    Dream images are like icons on a computer screen – You have to ‘click’ on your dream images to make them come alive. Thinking about them doesn’t work. You need to open yourself to the magic of them. To find the wonder of what has been offered you through your dreams, you must learn something new; you must extend yourself – so become the eggs – http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson

Well I had a dream and I was at school and I look out the window and it was really dark outside, but then I saw 2 small UFOs flying around and then there was one really hug one just staying in place and I felt like I was being watched please reply.

    Hi – I am stopping from answering your posts fully – but will try to give hints; sometimes long ones because I quote from masses I have already put online. Also, I need to take time to update the site – dreamhawk.

    It would help you to understand your dreams, if you would read – http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/questions-2/#Summing and also http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/features-found-on-site/ which has so much information in.

    Jusiah – A UFO is something you never met before coming from huge space. You dream is saying that you are ready – if you have courage – to meet the hugeness that you are. We are all subject to the forces of growth – it is one of the main functions of life. But because growth is a push toward change, change that we do not want to face, we often resist it; often without realising we are doing so. Also remember that you were at school about to learn something.

    But we have to remember that having a personality with self awareness is a very new thing and has only existed for a short time. Before that we were like animals that lived only in the Life Will – what we usually call instincts. So the development of self awareness was an immense step, and left us very vulnerable, and still does.

    Many people as their awareness reaches beyond what they feel is their normal self feel scared. Such resistances cause us to create awful dreams and fears as a means of avoiding our own inner world and its wonders. We feel that we will be swallowed up and we will die, or face aliens. It is important to say that when we meet the experience of powerlessness through becoming aware of the hugeness of your Life, which we are usually unaware if, it feels like something alien or attacking, and it is a shock.

I had a strange dream last night and many others previously.

Last night I dreamt I was in my mums garden and the sky change from mixed cloud and sun to complete darkness with loads of round flying saucers with red lights on them. I dreamt they were dropping red lights which were like poision and changing the human race. I dreamt I hid in my mums carport to escape the dropped red lights. After the flying saucers left the sky went back to normal. Very strange dream.

I have dreamt simular dreams in the past where UFO’s are trying to do something to me and I have hid in my parents house.

I am not sure what they mean but perhaps I am trying to hide from something thats in my life now.

-Nina 2017-01-23 11:37:48

I had a dream that me and my mom were driving to a market and a big ball came crashing down, the ball was part of the UFO but look somewhat like a meteoroid. We looked up to the sky to see a very large ufo kind of spaceship in the sky, I just remember that at one point it was all over the news and people didn’t know what it was. I know that the moment I woke up, I was very relieved that it wasn’t real.

-Ani 2017-01-20 9:37:15

-Maja 2017-01-09 20:00:03

Hi there! 🙂
Last night a had a weird dream and I’m unsure of it’s meaning. It was during the night time and I was next to a lake I think. Everything seemed peaceful and calm and my family was there with me. All of a sudden I look up and see so much different UFOs coming from everywhere and I didn’t really see their shape..I think they didn’t have any specific shape but they had lights. I saw red and white and I think even green but I’m not sure. I can’t remember how I felt, but I sure didn’t feel comfortable. I think it was somewhere between fear and amazement. What could it all mean ?

    -Tony Crisp 2017-01-10 10:10:38

    Hi – I must take time to upgrade the dream dictionary, so must halt from answering your posts – I started revising the dictionary in 2006, and haven’t neared the end yet. I believe someone else may start giving interpretations.

    So, for a while I urge you to read http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/i-am-no-longer-interpreting-dreams/ – It describes ways that can help you. And often it would help too if you looked at http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/questions-2/#Summing


    Maja – This discomfort was because you were moving beyond the life experience you are usually comfortable with.

    The human personality – the You that you call yourself, with a name, is only a tiny thing. It is moved and tossed around by all manner of drives, ambitions, emotions, fears, temptations, worries, love and desire with its pains and hopes; it is something we take so seriously and get carried away into awful situations.

    Many people as their awareness reaches beyond what they feel is their normal self feel scared. Such resistances cause us to create awful dreams and fears as a means of avoiding our own inner world and its wonders. We feel that we will be swallowed up and we will die. It is important to say that when we meet the experience of powerlessness through becoming aware of the hugeness of your Life, which we are usually unaware if, it feels like something alien or attacking, and it is a shock.

I have had this dream two nights in a row. Not the exact same but I’d be in different places with the same outcome. We would be warned over a radio that a ufo is landing at a specific time. Turn all electronics off, get inside, and lay down. When the ufo landed, you can only see the lights on the ship and there would be no beam of light. There would be so much destruction. So much wind that windows and doors would shake and fly right off. But the houses wouldn’t collapse. Sometimes the aliens take a few people, sometimes they just look at you. What does this mean?

    -Tony Crisp 2016-11-01 7:16:32

    Monica – It means that an alien, an unknown part of you has begun to become known to you.

    A great shaking force is part of this because the UFO represent a huge and powerful part of you that you are still mostly unaware of – see http://dreamhawk.com/inner-life/the-unconscious-2/

    In life and sleep we have two powerful actions working in us. The first is our waking experience based on having a body, its limitations, vulnerabilities and a particular gender. Our second is the power that gave us life and continues to express as dreams, in our breathing and heartbeat – our life. This I have given the description as the Life Will.

    While we sleep, our conscious self is largely or totally unconscious, and while we dream our voluntary muscles are paralysed – therefore another will or motivating force moves our body. So, we have a Conscious Will, and what I will call a Life Will. The first one we have experience of as we can move our arm or speak in everyday activities; but the second will takes over when we sleep. This Life will can move us to speak, to move our body, and in fact do things that we cannot do with our Conscious Will.

    The human personality – the You that you call yourself, with a name, is only a tiny thing; whereas the life will is enormous and controls all the things you cannot, like your heartbeat, digestion etc. Because you are becoming slightly aware of your huge self, as your, awareness reaches beyond what they feel is their normal self, you can feel scared.

    So, because all the images, people, animals, places we see in our dreams, are simply your own feelings, fears, hopes and wonder projected onto the screen of your sleeping mind as images. So, it makes sense to take the image of your dream person, thing or animal back into you and own it. In that way, you are actually meeting and dealing with the things about yourself you are not owning or conscious of. That is why dreams are often difficult to understand, because we are hiding things from ourselves. To do this you can use http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson


-Tamika 2016-06-01 12:46:38

I keep having this dream id say once a year or maybe even twice where I am back at the house I used to live in with my family and I still look the same and everything thing is the same about me as I am at this current moment (I’m 16) and the same things happen in the dream I really do not understand why u keep having it I know it sounds crazy but this is what happeneds and I remeber soo easily Everytime …
1) we will be warned to all go in side out houses because something is not right and to turn off all electronic devices
2) the army and spy’s (sounds crazy right) search all areas of where I am living to make sure we have all do this and we then have to close and lock all windows and blinds
(I seem to be the one who does this no one else in my family is bothered)
3) guns are shot at those who did not follow instructions
4) a big outline of a dark red ring appears in the sky … everyone panics
This time two human looking creatures m came from the sky was able to unlock all doors and windows and when I was trying to rush my family into a room away from them my mum was holding the handle of the door but it opened because of them as the walled closer towards us and one of the human like creatures wispered into my mums ear and they all looked at me then i woke up but that last bit had only happened this time and it seems every time i dream this dream I’ll go through the whole situation but there is something added on the ending? Someone please help ….tell me what is going on

    -Anna - Tony's Assistant 2016-06-04 11:29:24

    Dear Tamika – Your recurring dreams may reflect a process of gradually becoming more aware of Life and how It influences you to develop and express your (sexual) potential.
    You withdraw into yourself and close and lock all windows and blinds and turn off all electronic devices; you withdraw from Life and from allowing Life to express its growth process in you and through you.
    You wrote; “guns are shot at those who did not follow instructions” and this does not have the same meaning as it would have when you would be shot in waking life.
    Being shot can also indicate penetration, the breaking through your barriers of old patterns of thinking and feeling, to allow something more into your life. It may be painful but growing or being enlarged is often like that.
    You wrote that you are 16 and so your dream may reflect this inner growth process that you feel threatened by; inner growth is like a journey into the unknown and you do not know yet “what comes from the sky”.
    When you rush your family into a room away from “them” you make an effort to protect the values, attitudes and emotional or social responses you have absorbed from your family.
    Are you – or your (inner) mother – afraid of the idea that you could develop your own values and responses to life?
    See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/mother-mum-ma/#InnerMother and http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/teenage-girl%E2%80%99s-love-dreams/
    This book could be a guide for you too to help you deal with all the inner (and outer) changes that are and will be coming your way; http://mindfulnessforteens.com/the-mindful-teen/reviews-of-the-mindful-teen/
    Let me know if you have any questions Tamika.
    Anna 🙂

I used to have UFO and alien dreams quite a bit when i was a young kid. Some were mild(meaning not that memorable)and some wede so intensevthat they would wake me up. Not all of them were around the same concept. Some were just me sitting around alone or with a friend and seeing one in the sky, others i would see the being(s) and on occasion talk to them. What got to me the mostvwasvthe feeling i had expierienced during some of them. It was indescribable. There were some weeks as a kid where i would have ufo dreams every night. Somecof them feltcso real I could remember every detail. I have alot of crazy dreams unrelated to ufos that feel so real that sometimes i dont remember if it was a dream or not. I havent had any ufo dreams for quite sometime, but i had one today that brought back so many memories of the ones i had when i was a kid. I was in my grandmothers house, with a few members of my family, when i saw one just hovering outside above this huge tree she has in her front yard. I pointed it out to my cousin and felt a feeling of relief because i then had proof that they existed. It was a very bizzare looking spacecraft, not like any you could imagine. Then so many morevof the same model of craft began swarming the skies. I dont remember what happened next. But when i awoke from this, i felt that samevfeeling i used to when i was a kid. Like something is calling to me. Something from anothercworld or dimention. Id really likecto know what this means

I had a recurring dream where I saw a gigantic eclipse that turned out to be an alien invasion ship silhouetted by the sun with orbs floating around it

-Ebony 2015-10-18 14:34:40

On a regular basis i dream i work in other places with beings of all kinds. Ive done everything from rescue missions to all out wars to working with “special” children to having my blood taken to working in simulations that prepare me for actual events that have happened in my wake state(ie Sandy). A particular dream i experienced last night was seeing a huge ship crash and then people sinking underwater. But then under the water everything changed. Beings came out of all directions and took the people down even further. I witnessed the event through a glass window underwater. When I looked at the crashed ship underwater it was one of the crafts of the mothership. Then someone came and blocked my sight by pulling a black curtain closed. I attempted to sneak another peek but to my horror the crash victims were quickly being snatched into the watery darkness, fear on their faces. Last time a ship crashed i was zapped into a dark paralysis by a huge electromagnetic pulse that spread for miles. My relationship with light ships dimension ships etc…is so often that Im convinced they are real. I even know the name of the doctor who runs one of the programs…and when we’re called to see the doctor we have to go through a purifying process before the doctor meets with us. Its just all so multidimensional, I sometimes am mocked for my articulation of words ie…scan vs assumption. I dont forget to “come down” or “dumb down” i just like where I am any given span of time…and tend to live from that range of frequency. Can you touch on this type of being or guide me toward a resource? Thank you in advance.

-Alex 2015-04-28 19:30:14

I have recently had a dream that I was hanging out with my old step brother and sister (whom I do not claim due to some personal reasons) but I looked outside and saw a big red circle in the sky, I think in the dream I believed it I be the moon but it was a bright red color and there were ufo lights coming from it and traveling a crossed the sky.
