Swimming With Martians

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a dream I have had. I was going to post an entry about 3 separate dreams I had the last few weeks. But the dreams are fading and I never did write them down. Luckily, I wrote down this dream. I woke up about 3:30 and quickly wrote the dream down. It is weird. Believe me. I hope you enjoy this dream. I know I sure did.

I am at a local pool with a gal I used to work. My sister is there too. The three of us climb a flight of stairs to reach the upper level of this pool. There is a line and we wait. I don’t recall if the pool was crowded and that’s why we had to wait. No matter. We eventually were let in and we rushed to the pool to swim, frolic, and do whatever else you do at a pool. I am in jeans and as I change into my new outfit, I am struggling with my keys that are attached to my jeans. Took some time but I got the keys off and went to jump in the pool. I floated about in the pool like I was a dead body. It’s quite the way to pick up the ladies since my dead man floating stunt caught the eye of a very obese woman.

I see an old classmate from high school on the other side of the pool. He is burnt up. He had a tattoo on his leg. It was one of those bands that wrap around his ankle. He wants to know why I am so pale. I explain to him that I run and asks if he’s burnt because he lives in California.

I and others look to the sky and see a UFO. It isn’t the normal UFO you’d expect. It wasn’t round or triangular in shape. No. It was a ship that resembled a level from Super Mario. It had the green pipes, the brick floor, and a goomba. It was tilted at a 85 degree angle (or something around that). We can see the pilot of the UFO. It wasn’t a gray alien or a little green martian. It was an alien dressed in an astronauts spacesuit. The UFO blasted away backwards and before we could even collect our thoughts, a huge fleet of one of kind UFO’s fill the sky. They all did look different but the only other spacecraft I remember seeing was the flying RV from the movie Spaceballs. A few of the astronaut aliens are walking towards us. They have this weird powder in clear plastic jugs they want to give us.

The pool begins to close as a tarp begins to move over it. People are panicking. I am too. I am running about. I am swigging from pipes and hiding in air vents and behind other structures. I see two guys from the corner of my eye. Were they aliens? No. They weren’t in astronaut spacesuits. They were just two guys with guns. I remember one of the guys being a very large, black man. I think he was the one that fired the gun. I know it hit me but I think it was more like getting shot by a paintball.  They wanted to kill me but I told them,

You’ll have to wait so I can look at my schedule for next week.

I get away from the two guys and I am hanging from a pipe. There is an alien below me. He is in human form. He wants to eat me. I also assume in my dream (never say it aloud but I think it) that maybe these aliens are like the ones from the movie Signs and they are scared of water.


It’s a little choppy. I woke up about 3:30 or so that morning. I grabbed my phone and wrote it down or what was still in my head. Maybe the timeline is off. But what you just read above it what I remember and what took place inside my brain. Let us see what this dream means according to Dreammoods.com

Swimming Pool: To see a swimming pool in your dream symbolizes relaxation, calmness, luxury and ease. You need to take a break. Alternatively, a swimming pool suggests that you need to acknowledge and understand your feelings. It is time to dive in and deal with those emotions. You need to cleanse yourself and wash away past hurts.

Key chain/Key: To see a key chain in your dream indicates your ability to adapt to most any situations. You fit in with anybody and anywhere.  To look up just Keys,  To see a key in your dream symbolizes opportunities, access, control, secrets, freedom, knowledge or responsibilities. You may be locking away your own inner feelings and emotions. I removed the keys from myself. Since I took them off and removed them from my person, If you give your key away, then it suggests that you have given up control of some situation or responsibility.

Classmate: To see old classmates in your dream indicate that you need to draw on your old associations with your former classmates to gain insight in some current relationship. It represents a past lesson that you have learned and is applicable in some aspect of your waking life now.

UFO: To see a UFO in your dream signifies your desire to find your spiritual purpose in life. Alternatively, it indicates that you are feeling alienated from those around you.

Alternatively, the dream suggests that you need to take on a different perspective, no matter how bizarre or unusual it may be.

Aliens: To see aliens in your dream signify that you are having difficulties adapting and adjusting to your new surroundings. You are feeling “alienated” and disconnected.

Another exciting dream. I wish I wrote some other dreams down. I have had a few and they were just as strange. One involved a co-worker who fakes his own death because he’s bored and just feels like it. No matter. Give me your insight on this dream. Meaningful or should I just lay off the drugs?
