Abducted by aliens...
The first and most obvious question upon wakening is: Was I really dreaming? Was I abducted by aliens? In order to deal with this. This dream is associated with how you feel about others around you. The dream interpretation is useful because it is associated with something unnatural to what you are used to. There is a wealth of interpretations depending upon the details of your dream. This dream can also demonstrate some form of spiritual development or alternative wholeness or when an area of your life is complete. You are abducted by aliens then in this dream it shows that you are being taken over by a force against your will; therefore, the dream meaning is simply that – it is literal.
Obviously this dream is disturbing you for obvious reasons but it awakens the feeling of being exhausted and unable to deal with your events in life. It is clear from this dream you are experiencing an area of your waking life where you are feeling abandoned or abducted by somebody or a situation. Most of the time this dream is connected to a work situation. If in your dream you have been abducted by aliens then this shows the need to put your fears at rest. It is vital that you look at the other meanings associated with this dream, such as your family (did you notice if you were alone during the abduction?) Generally we normally have this type of dream when we need to ask ourselves some important questions.
This dream is often referred to as a nightmare as it generally indicates a crisis point of your life - where you seem to have no resolution. You need to analyze events that happened in your life recently as you feel that your spirit has been wounded. The message here is to start to look into situations which have resulted in you trying to overcome any conflict that you have experienced. The most useful change for you going forward is that you need to be able to be subjective in regards to your approach to situations with others. If you focus on looking at the practical matters in your waking life this will enable you to understand the background of complex situations, so you can find the best approach.
A solution from another will be offered if you ask for help. Maybe you have been feeling that you have worked hard in order to get to where you are in life and that you are enjoying your projects and routine but you know that it is time to move on. If you witness other people being taken by aliens then an engagement or pleasurable event is likely to be cancelled.
This is not a positive dream and may also indicate minor misfortune. In some way, shape or form if you are being taken over by aliens then this control is beginning to impact upon you to the point that it is starting to affect your subconscious mind. Time to retreat and start to think about what you want going forward. Is that big fast car really something that inspires you or do you want to grow your circle of friends?
Signs of a real alien abduction...
There have been many accounts of alien abductions and this is the most prevalent theory in regard to unexplained activities. Throughout history alien abduction has been a theme of horror stories since the nineteenth century.
The most mysterious fact is that experience of the Greys; these are creatures whose supposed existence is connected to carrying out implants and procedures on human beings. It is true to conclude that there have been many people who have claimed to be implanted with tiny metal devices, which have been removed by surgeons, the origins of these implants have never been explained.
There are many movies, books and reports of abductions but what does this mean for your dream, or if you believe you have been abducted yourself?
The Red Indian shamans (Black Elk of the Oglala Sioux) believed that aliens traveled to the world through a cosmic pillar, this was symbolized by a tree or natural energy. A spirit form such as a bird would then lead them to a tunnel into a rainbow where the shaman would undergo a series of painful body dismemberment.
The old shamans believed that UFO abductions were connected to parallel universes of other origins. Every one of us has undergone birth and the shamans thought that the trauma was the universal phenomenon and that no two births are the same.
- Please note: If your dream was vivid then it is extremely important to make sure that you write down every detail. In 1968 the author Erich von Däniken wrote the book called "the Chariots of the Gods." he put forth a theory that aliens visited Earth to teach humans about technological advances and had an effect on religions.
The signs of true alien abduction and the associated history behind the traumatic experience is detailed below.
An abduction story of Betty Andreasson of South Ashburnham, Massachusetts, USA can be associated to this theory. At 7 pm on 25th of January 1967, Betty was allegedly taken from her living room by more than one alien.
The experience began with her witnessing a bright light in her kitchen; she was alone as her seven children, mother, and father were in the living room. The children began to become distressed as Betty went in the room to comfort them. Betty's father ran into the kitchen to look out of the window, and found the source of the unusual light. To his disbelief and shock, he saw five aliens approaching the house.
The entire family was put into what they stated as a sense of "suspended animation". It was recorded that the alien made telepathic communication with Betty. The alien was just five-feet tall, with the other aliens a foot shorter. All of the beings had a pear-shaped head, with wide eyes, and small ears and noses and mouths which were a slit. They were able to communicate telepathically. They floated Betty outside of the house to a craft and they proceeded to carry out an examination.
At the climax of this event she witnessed a huge bird that spoke to her, it said "I have decided to show you the world" and then it was consumed in flames.
At this point you may be thinking that this is farfetched. To the right is a drawing that Betty did in connection to the aircraft. Betty and her daughter were given a character check, fourteen hours of regressive hypnosis, a psychiatric review, and two lie-detector tests. The results were documented in a 528 page account, which basically stated that both Betty and her daughter were sane people. This case is useful to cite at this point as it has been investigated extensively by urologists. The witness (Betty and her daughter) are reliable and provide us with some insight into true alien abduction signs for which is outlined below:

Could it be sleep paralysis?
Encountering sleep paralysis just before you wake up can often be mistaken with being taken by aliens. This occurs as part of the natural part of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, which is often called REM Antonia. This state occurs when the brain awakes from REM but the body is still paralyzed. The result is that this leaves you fully conscious, but unable to move. Reports of this feeling lasting between two to three seconds to several minutes following the awakening experience. This results in panic. So what has this got to do with alien abduction?& In short while you are consciously going through this state your body could fling around during REM and cause vivid hallucinations. In concluding if you experienced sleep paralysis then it is important to understand that this is generally connected to you being unable to move. Did you feel afraid but not able to call for help?
