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.

Okay I have’nt seen any dreams but right now like half and hour ago my sister called me.It’s 23.15 kind ish. She was just downstairs and said that i have to see this that she thinks she is seeing a ufo. It looked like a star but brighter. When u look really carefully you can see it move like fast. Not like really fast but you can understand that it cannot be a plane or something like that. We woke our parents up and they saw it too me and my sister called a friend and they saw it too. We looked closely to the window and you could see that there was an even brighter one that moved also and all if us saw like a red light. I told some of my friends through fb group chat and one girl who looked outside saw it too. It’s not easy to see but it literally makes circles and goes up and down and like blinks. Kind if fades and then goes brighter im still exited and in a small shock.

Hey, so my dream was a bit odd, but I felt like I had to share cause it was pretty cool. So I dreamt that I was on a roof somewhere and I saw a group of oddly shaped ships in the air (none exactly saucer shaped) there was a particular one that I could see doing like backflips, and I pulled out my phone to record it and it somehow sensed that I was recording it and it came down and stopped in front of the roof and was just floating there. It was triangular and had a blue light which was making it stay airborne. Then the door opened and a person who looks like a human in an army outfit stepped out and grabbed my phone and deleted the video, but then he sat next to me and I asked him where he came from and he said something about being from “mother” and he was keeping the human race safe. Then I saw a screen behind him with a people in military uniforms talking. I’m assuming his commanders. Then they told him to leave and he left. It was pretty crazy.

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 dreamt I saw a huge spaceship in the shape of an alligator; it’s tail swaying as it moved through the air.

    Yvonne – It seems you have awoken a magnificent creature. What have you been doing to get something so wonderful to visit you? Meditating, reaching into yourself in some way?

    Anyway it is a living creature and is not mechanical. It is a great power that we all have inside us, but most people are unconscious of it and are often afraid when they meet it.

    But you are still only in the early phases because it still appears alien to you. But it holds the possibility of an awareness that if you met it would revolutionise your outlook and your life in a good way. But first you would need to meet it and integrate it into your life. That might be scary because this is a vast creature and we are so tiny – but yet have the potential to be huge.

    So try being the creature by using http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson and reading http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/questions-2/#Summing

My pardons for disturbing you again. I began reading your website. It is so ironic that I always gravitate towards people from the U K. I believe I was from there in a previous life. My heart is there and I hope to return someday. Also the fact that you are an animal lover, I am a vegan, and I too a carer for geriatric patients. You are most accomplished, and a strong and beautiful person. 🙂

    -Tony Crisp 2014-07-28 10:06:47

    Rachel – Thank you for what you wrote.

    I see you live somewhere near Annandale. It is named after a place in Scotland – a Gaelic name.

    I live in Wales, but in the past I think we have lived in so many countries, and often have feelings about one place. I hope you manage to visit here in the UK/Great Britain. We have been shaped in our national attitudes by many incursions of different nations, and the second world war gave a tremendous blow to the old class system. As I child I lived in London prior to and after the war. I remember being able to look across a mile of flattened houses – yet I can never remember any fear during or after the war. People got on with their lives.

    Such experiences have shaped us.


-Rachel 2014-07-28 3:57:49

You, Mr. Crisp, are most kind and wise. It is true what you have said. My son is a perfectionist and cannot accept criticism, something we need to work on. I will sit down with him tomorrow morning and show this too him.
May peace, good health, and happiness be yours.

-Rachel 2014-07-24 4:59:06

Can you please help me? My 16 year old son is a bit depressed and needs confidence.
He dreamt he was talking to someone and they were intimidating and screws and bolts flew from his mouth when this man spoke.
Your help and time is most appreciated. This dream disturbed him. Thank you.

    -Tony Crisp 2014-07-24 8:06:55

    Rachel – – How can anyone be really intimidated? You are alive, meaning that you are a creature of Life, and underneath your personality is the whole mystery of creation. So you are a miracle. Think about it. Astronomers are spending millions searching for life on other planets, forgetting that it is you they are searching for, someone with amazing potential.

    In dreams we are diving into ourselves, like diving under water. We then exist in a very different world with completely different rules, for we are in a self created virtual reality and we see people, animals and scenes that are actually expressions of a world we create in ourselves. They are all expressions of your thoughts, feelings, worries and your wonder. So the intimidating person is about your own feelings about being criticised. The thing about the dream world is that it is not like real life, because a dream is nothing like outer life where things could hurt you, but is an image like on a cinema screen that even if a gun is pointed at you and fired it can do no damage – except if you run in fear. So all the things that scare you are simply your own fears projected onto the screen of your sleeping mind.

    Also you can fight back without any fear of getting hurt. So imagine taking the screws and bolts and shoving them back in his mouth where they belong. It may take a bit of practice, but it will demonstrate that you are the master of your own inner world of dreams.


      -Rachel 2014-07-25 2:57:28

      Hello Tony,
      Many thanks for your prompt and insightful response. I want to take the time to breakdown your answer, and sit down and review it with my son. Thank you for your kindness not only to me, but so many others whom you’ve helped alieviate a disturbing or questioning dream. Peace. Rachel

        -Tony Crisp 2014-07-25 10:54:45

        Rachel – Thank you for saying things that do reach me inside.


-tashatoosassy 2014-07-21 16:18:29

I had a dream that myself and a unknown person who I can’t recall walked out a building on I noticed there was chaos outside so I looked up in the sky anand seen a UFO/spaceship it had red green and yellow. Lights but what was weird about it it was attacking our town and shooting flying objects out all I could remember was running and trying to take cover then out of nowhere I appeared in a house with different people be scared about something totally different! I need help with understanding this dream thanks

    -tashatoosassy 2014-07-21 16:22:25

    Oh and for some reason I kept concentrating on the lights was amazed and frighten at the same time if that makes any sense

-kavion copelin 2014-04-09 4:57:10

I’ve lost count after my first close encounter when I was a child. However last night I dreamt the same flying objects being chased by fighter jets. Except this time I made eye contact with one that was very tall and greenish blue. I waved at him and he waved back..only one other time they actually landed and tall Caucasian beings on purple gowns with gold on them told me it’s was OK to come with them…weird right

-Franco Rojo 2013-12-26 1:01:16

Hello Mr.Tony Crisp ,
I had a dream that I was on one of my friends streets and I looked up into this fog that appeared in the sky no one els noticed it but when I did I could start seeing lights on a space ship and it was floating there not making a sound just hovering above me . Then when I pointed it out in the sky it was to my dad and he’s seen it it started lifting a away with no sound by the time everyone els was outside nobody could see it anymore. I waited in the same spot they came back down after everyone was gone . Then I could see the the whole ship and it’s silence payed attention to its detail on the outside and it could see the power of the machine they were in and the stealth that it had and lifted up and straight out into space it took off with no sound .

-SsstarssS 2013-10-21 2:35:39

had a dream that my family was all on my front porch. My dad, my husband and my younger brother and I. We saw a ufo flying over in the field behind my house (we live in the country.) And we were all astonished and excited. So we ran behind my house but couldn’t find it. We went back to the porch and were talking about it when this3 racoon came running up to us like we weren’t even there. Then a bear came and I reached out to touch it but it growled at me. Then suddenly a huge moose came up to me, sniffed me, then slurped up my hair in it’s mouth and started pulling live it wanted me to come with it. So when it saw I was coming willingly it let go and bent down to put its antler in my hand. So I held its antler and it guided me into the woods. The bear and the racoon came too. We alsaw the lights from the ufo and the next thing I knew I was wandering out of the woods and my family was so worried. But I had nothing to tell them. Then I walked around to think and 3 men appeared and said do not be afraid. And then they telepathically spoke to me saying they were angels and that they would protect me. And that they knew what happened when I was abducted. What does it mean???

-Deanna Baker 2013-09-02 21:17:26

Had this dream that was so clear but so far from what I normally dream…. Can u help with the meaning?

In my dream I was in another state, specifically on my grandmother’s street. It was a full moon. I was standing with my husband in the middle of the street looking at the moon. All of a sudden the clouds around the moon lit up pink like there was lightning. bolts of fire, or something similar started shooting from the moon down toward the ground. I told my husband hurry up and look, look how beautiful and amazing that was. Then coming down the street right toward us was this round object… The closer it got it was what appeared to be a UFO. It was silver with black tinted windows around and maybe about 6 inches wide. This UFO went right around us and went to the house. Specifically this house is two doors down from my grandmothers. The UFO went right to an alien that was halfway embedded in their front lawn right at the base of their porch. I made eye contact with the alien and it just winked at me. I woke up and was unable to go back to sleep.


-Jennifer 2013-05-07 15:48:10

I had a dream a few years ago about fire falling from the sky, people running crazy and frantic; the strangest bit was that certain people where sat crossed legs being admitted into this bluish light. They where happy and peaceful and everyone else was scared of this. The shuddering fact of this matter is I told my brother and he had a panic attack! 6 years before he too had had this very same dream. It shook us abit and since I have had similar dreams with ufo’s and extraterrestrial lifeforms could anyone give me an explanation? ?

-Miranda 2013-01-23 23:24:59

i had a dream about ufo invading our planet and i was wondering what that meant its the second time i had th dream
