ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of aliens in dreams?
Aliens are real(in dreams) and they represent something that is real but which we find difficult to really understand. Its something that is completely different to what we have grown up to believe.

Alien can symbolise something that is outside or external or foreign in some sense. E.g.

"I woke up and heard this noise. It was my next door neighbour having a coughing fit"[Dream symbol - body opens its eyes which look like an aliens][the dream on which this quote is based is featured at the end of this article]

"I am starting to deal with some really difficult childhood emotions. I have always felt cut off from everyone else. I have never really fitted in."[Dream symbol - cross over bridge near some aliens]

Aliens often link to moments when we feel alienated and different from everyone else. E.g.

"I feel I cannot trust anyone. I feel so alone and so very different from everyone else "[Dream symbol - aliens coming to get us]

"I am trying to mix in with them. Yet they come from a completely different background than me. I feel really out of place and intimidated. "[Dream symbol - Trying to dodge aliens dream]

Aliens are a superior species with immense powerand may link to moments when we feel totally powerless to stop something . E.g.

"I fear that I may lose my home. I cannot seem to fight such a force "[Dream symbol - aliens coming to get us]

"I feel worried about handing over control to these people yesterday. I do not know them and they have powers to control me now. "[Dream symbol - In an alien aircraft]

Aliens often link to moments when we come up against strange people or strange new behavior. It maybe represents something unpleasant that is influencing your life such as people whom you do not trust or understand. E.g.

"I have got real fears that my sons are picking up some STRANGE bad habits and ways of thinking."[Dream symbol - Scary aliens]

"I have recently engaged in homosexual acts though I have never considered myself gay. I am a little unsure of what I think right now. "[Dream symbol - ugly alien who is attractive]

Aliens may symbolise something that you cannot understand or comprehend. Some strange unknown world that you are about to enter. E.g.

"Its scaring me my first day at big school - it seems so scary and different"[Dream symbol - alien]

"I fear my health is getting worse. I could be about to enter some strange new world where my health problems totally alter my life in ways that I cannot imagine"[Dream symbol - alien spaceship]

Aliens are very much symbolic of some higher intelligence. they can link to our own fascination with the unknown in general. E.g.

"I feel spiritually enlightened at the moment"[Dream symbol - looking up at aliens spaceship]
--------------------------------------
SAMPLE DREAM : Dreams generally link to some real issue of relevance to you right now. They may capture your feelings on some health issue, work problem , relationship in difficulty , your feelings about how things are generally going, your plans for the day ahead or some simple paranoia or fear. The dreams featured in this website will try to reduce the dreams meaning to a quote which captures your current feelings on some issue. When studying your own dreams try to think what quotes could capture your own feelings on pressing issues. Think especially of the day before the dream and your thoughts about the day to come.
-----------------------
THE DREAM I see this body lying in bed and its eyes open. It looks like an alien. As I wake up I feel this reassuring feeling that its everything is OK.

THE REALITY The dreamer woke up from this dream and his next door neighbour was coughing very loudly. She suffers from some asthma related illness.

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I woke up in the middle of the night. It was because of some noise. I realised immediately it was my next door neighbour coughing very loudly as she has some kind of lung problem."

THE INTERPRETATION Dreams will often be about issues in our emotional and day to day lives. But if something is actually happening at the time of the dream whilst we are sleeping then our dream tends to link to those events. So if there is some noise in the background that may be incorporated into the dream or even take the dream over. Whilst asleep we need to sense what is happening in order to detect danger. Anything might be happening and we maybe the victims of fire or burglary.

In this case the alien symbolises that some noise was coming from an alien source. That is using alien in the sense that it is outside. The dream also captures this sense that things are OK. The dreamers neighbour often had breathing difficulties and woke up coughing loudly. So maybe the dreamer was sensing that the noise came from next door and there was no immediate threat to his danger.

Symbolic Meanings
ALIEN : "some external event - in this case a noise from outside"
FEELING OF SAFETY : "the dreamer senses that the noise is connected with a source that will not cause any danger to the dreamers life"
