Alien Dream Meaning

Meaning of Dreams about Aliens

Alien Dream Meaning Psychological meaning:

Given that you have not been adducted during the night, to dream of an alien indicates that you have encountered part of the psyche which is unfamiliar to you. You may feel that this ‘unfamiliar’ part of yourself is hostile or an enemy.

Your first step should be to find out what this ‘foreign’ part of yourself is and get to know this neglected aspect of yourself. For example, you may be behaving in ways that are ‘alien’ to you or have feelings that are ‘unlike you’. It is unhealthy to repress or neglect these components of your nature.

What at first appears as frightening because of its unfamiliarity may in time become a mentor and ally. This alter-ego may have something good to offer you. Also, the alien may represent a situation you have recently experienced. When we start a new job we may at first feel ‘alienated’ or you may feel that you are like an outsider. Alternatively, you may feel emotionally in another world to everyone else.

Alien Dream Meaning Mystical meaning:

Aliens are (arguably) a product of the modern times, so there are no traditional folklore interpretations for this dream.

    I dream of fighting with aliens and sometimes I dream of seeing aliens tracking me anywhere I hide. In one dream I see myself taking a picture of a UFO with my phone camera. One day I wanted to use my phone camera to take pic but it was not working yet before the dream the camera was working.

    I have been waking up in the middle of the night after I had a dream about aliens all confuse and scare. Like I’m in a ship and every time I would look out the window with a commander, I think, I see Earth in really bad shape, like instead of Earth being beautiful it’s destroy sort of. I’m just in the ship crying as if I lost my family that I care about. And I haven’t lost anybody or any pet. Then for some reason I would start going to earth with the aliens and fight along their side. Is there a specific meaning to this dream?

    I had a dream about aliens last it was a pretty good one tho scary it was enjoyable. Reading this meaning made me me laugh for years apart from 3 when I was black ops for the government but I was freelance so doesn’t count I’ve been very anti-establishment now I’m employed directly by the government some of the way they work is just strange and foreign to me you could say alien so the answer tells me all I need to know thanks.

    I am nearly 70 yrs old and have had alien dreams since my teens. They always have the theme of the earth is being destroyed by aliens and they are hunting down all the humans. I always awaken before any “final” solution. The aliens and/or the environments, or methods of destruction vary. . .but I always must “hide,” so they don’t find me. Sometimes there is a baby that I am holding that I must protect. The last dream I recently had contained a new component – the destruction consisted of huge tsunami type waves crashing over the planet and then slowly the water they left was being frozen. In my other dreams, often lizard-like creatures were hunting down all the humans. I even had one where it was set in like a Western town in the old days and they had on cowboy hats & wearing gun slings, but they had laser-like guns. I always awaken with heart pounding, remember the dreams and have dream “hangover” for a couple of days.

      If this dream about aliens has reoccured throughout your life then it may point to a deep set psychological issue that you have not been able to resolve. The aliens may represent something from your childhood that was overwhelming emotionally and destroyed your sense of security.

      Today I dreamt early morning about alien who was just staring at me but before that I have one more dream that sea is gone mad and water is flying and following me and other members we all are trying to hide and scared. This is the first time this alien dream I had. I had many bad dream about sea (something do really bad to me and always it true in near future).

    It seemed so real. I was looking up at the stars from inside my semi truck and noticed something hovering around in the sky. I knew it was a flying saucer so I started filming it. Then it started coming my way and landed next to my truck. The ship was squarish in shape that had a landing gear made up of 3 tripod looking arms. I took off running to some random house that just appeared right in front of me. I went to the front door and pounded on it and a lady answered. I was panicking and scared shitless told her a flying saucer just landed next to my truck. We walked out to my truck and I seen the alien inside my truck. It seen me and rushed out of my truck and came up to me. It was light grey in color, with a bigger than normal head than a human head with big black eyes. He was about 5 ft tall and was wearing shorts and a polo shirt. He spoke English and when he was talking to me I noticed he had perfect straight white teeth. His voice sounded similar to E.T.s voice. He told me to…

    I had a dream of an alien race, that look human. First chunks of buildings were falling from the sky. Then I saw two groups of the alien army. One was in a bright blue and black, the other was green. I was scared at first, cause they were coming into my direction. I was trying to hide in between the pillars of a near by bridge from the fall debris. Then I sided with the blue army. We were heading for some kind of war.

    When I was 11 yrs old I had my first paralysis dream in which I was paralyzed and then all of a sudden going through a white tunnel at the speed of light to “Wake up” and wonder if I was abducted. My 2nd paralysis dream was when I was 13/14 years old in which again I was paralyzed but this time I seen a black shadowed figure at the end of my bed just watching me while I struggle to move for my phone and I got it but then the light didn’t shine on and finally I “awoke.”

    I had a dream I was talking to an alien. In my dream the alien told me that we need to take care of our earth because if we don’t something bad will happen to it soon. Then all of a sudden right after he told me this my husband woke up which woke me up and made me think it was coming true that the alien was really in my room. I want scared at all talking to him or when I thought it was in my room when I woke up. I’m really curious. Someone help please. Thanks in advance.

    I keep dreaming that I am an alien, but I don’t know it till all these symptoms start to show up. Lose of nails, thick hair out my hands, fingers into pincers and try so hard to keep it hidden, but can’t.

    Dreamed I was with a group of people and we were doing battle of some sort with reptilian aliens…..the aliens had implanted some kind of bugs in our noses and as we began winning the war with these aliens the bugs started coming out of our noses….this caused me to wake up….upon waking I saw a really tall skinny shadowy figure at the end of my bed and as I looked at it it ran to the bedroom door and disappeared….scared the crap out of me

    In my dream I was part of a secret government organization which was designed to find and cover up paranormal phenomena. Apart from my group I found a small grey alien with some technology and a big book. I took him and hid him from everyone. Every day I would hang out with this alien and at first we were hostile and menacing toward each other but after some time we were good friends. He explained his species has traveled nearly everywhere and there’s few planets that can hold life so they are valuable. When they found earth they were angry its inhabitants were destroying it and were making plans to eradicate humanity to save the planet. The big book he had was plans of God himself to destroy us. Well the government found me and I had to flee and hide out in the old house I lived at. My fiance arrived and was being rude to me and when I hugged him I was forcing myself to smile. Afterwards, I was chatting with my alien and he explained that he can see peoples hearts and my fiancés.

    I had a dream last night I was helping someone find their parents because they were taken in the Roswell experiment(doesn’t really make sense I know) We break into this government site only to find nothing. As we’re back in his house all the screens go to one channel of humans with big black Grey eyes. They’re all just calmly saying “Kill me, oh God please kill me.” Freaked me out.

    I had a dream that aliens came to the earth and were abducting humans ( taking over the earth). I was trying to run away but was taken by one. I was being held by one floating upwards into the sky. As this was happening, I was looking into the eye of the one holding me and I started morphing into what he looked like. It was very bizarre because I felt no fear at all. As I finished morphing I felt peace come over me and then I woke up suddenly. I can even draw what he looked like… It was very, very vivid!

    Last night I had a dream and it was so scary. All I remember was two limos colliding and then a flashing blind light all of a sudden me and my friend were in a UFO I couldn’t see the aliens but we were in the UFO in spinning around and around and it was like they hypnotized us and counted in an alien voice 1,2,3 and we slowly closed our eyes and flashing lights again then all of a sudden we were out of the UFO and the train to get to my hometown kept passing by but we couldn’t catch it for some reason like we were stuck. I woke up in a panic I couldn’t sleep and I’m still scared..

    I have had several dreams from since i started high school. They have been increasing since I graduated in 2011. In the latest dream I was suspended in a bright white light, and a vaguely familiar female voice said inside my head, “no screw ups this time we need him ready for Transference to one of the Cryo sleep bodies of his.” To me she said a name I don’t remember and told me “I have a serum I am injecting into you that will activate when needed most.” I woke up right after the bright light disappeared and it was 5am. My watch was frozen at 10:30pm.

    I had a dream the other night that I was outside I can’t recall with who but I saw 3 to 5 ufos in the sky I got scared and tried to run but they had found me. I tried to kill it. It wasn’t a regular looking alien either it looked like a tallish alien squid….he stabbed me with this long knife and it didn’t hurt and it brought me to this other world and there were so many people there…..we all wore custom crystal head bands and we all sat around them as they taught us how to meditate, be peaceful, and humble….I felt so happy and everything was beautiful…I’m also very into consciousness and the universe…..I’ve saw ufos before green orbs of light it was amazing…..
