What do UFOs, submarines and earthquakes mean in a dream?

The truth is out there
The truth is out there

Dream 369: Looking Up and Feeling Down
A young man had the following dream:

“I had a dream where the streets was in a massive uproar. Citizens were locking themselves in and some where fleeing the city. As I looked outside into the streets I’ve witnessed the military and police on every corner. As I began to look at the sky, I saw a large UFO hovering over the city. The citizens was advised to stay in. As my family run in for cover trying to protect ourselves I looked out the windows to witness several tornadoes destroying the city. After the disaster we ended up at a dock to board a huge submarine with thousands of people waiting to board this submarine. As people patiently wait for their names to get called to board. Some families were unfortunate and couldn’t board and was turned away to be left behind. As some started to board a massive earthquake begins and breaks the dock. We all fell into the water….as I’m swimming to attempt to save my sister I wake up!”

My Interpretation for him

Jung said that a UFO is a “Mandela of divine possibility.” I think he meant the dreamer had hope that there was some truth “out there” for him or her. The police and military being everywhere indicates superego issues which is to say that are you want to keep your behavior according to the law and rules of society.

An earthquake usually means that your world is being shaken up in a major way. The ocean is the best symbol we have of subconscious emotion. You literally are going to get on a submarine to safely investigate the subconscious.

The people that make it onto the submarine are safe, but they are few. In other words, your subconscious thinks that there’s some of you that wants to look at subconscious issues, but a lot of you is resting on the dock of the bay which can result in negative events. (Each person in the dream is a part of your mind). The implication is that you may wish to “get on board” with something like therapy.

So all in all, the dream is saying that you’re looking for the truth out there and are being advised by your subconscious to follow the rules and explore your subconscious emotion before your world is totally shaken up. This dream was taken as symbolic which may or may not apply to you.

At the end, trying to save your sister indicates that you are trying to save the emotions that are close to you since women usually represent emotions and she is in your family.

Loving the Pigs

imagesDream 262:
A forty-two-year-old man dreamt that about a police car with two beautiful blonde twenty-something women in the front seat. Each woman was holding and consoling a pig. The back doors of the police car were wide open.

Interpretation:
Women most often represent emotions in dreams. Ideal model women, like in this dream, are animas that are frequently involved in the dreamer’s healing. Cops are often referred to on the streets as “pigs.”

Policemen and soldiers usually represent the heroic masculine archetype as soldiers are willing to die for their country and the police motto is “to serve and protect.” This dream is good news as his positive emotions (the animas) are in control of his aggressive (“pig”) instincts.

Police usually have people they arrest in the back seat. That the back doors were open was showing that he relaxed his strict superego. This was indeed the case as he was avoiding being aggressive with his teenage sons and was giving them somewhat more freedom from supervision. He recently returned from combat and was learning to be a more reasonable and patient parent.

Clean Up Your Language

Dream 198A: Clean Up Your Communication

A 48-year-old man dreamt that he was a police officer. A mother was telling him to write down neatly the changes that needed to occur in her 12-year-old son. She complained that her son was only getting C’s and D’s.

Dream 198A–Interpretation

A police officer is a superego figure (as are all law enforcement officers.) The mother in the dream is his mother introject which primarily deals with emotional issues. The son is his immature actions.

He recently was getting in trouble with his wife for swearing too much. She complained that his swearing was ruining their positive emotional atmosphere. She thought it was juvenile (the boy) and she and his mother introject gave his speech low grades (C’s and D’s). The fact that the police officer wrote down the information means that he should take special note of what his mother introject is telling him. His superego or conscience is telling him to clean up (write more legibly, communicate more clearly) his language.
