Singular Cerebrations: Dreaming in Grey

Last night I dreamed of greys, and unlike the other dreams I've had of them since childhood, they resembled the actual appearance of what we conceive of as grey aliens.  That might not sound like a big deal to you, but it means something to me.  Ever since I began receiving strange nocturnal visitations as a child I've been terrified of greys.  I remember seeing those faces with their huge almond eyes and minimalistic features floating above my bed as I lie there in mortal dread, and I decided then that I didn't ever want to witness them again.  So, when I began to have more lucid dreams as I matured, I found the one thing I could never conjure was the image of a grey, nor would they appear as normal in any uncontrolled dream.

My dream last night wasn't anything special, and I won't bore you with the details, because other than pictures of one's pets, kids, or vacations, I can't think of anything more boring to people than someone else's dreams; but suffice it to say that when I concentrated I was able to conjure a fair facsimile of a grey.  Up until now when I've dreamed of the greys I either couldn't see them, or they looked like something else.  At this point you're probably questioning why this is significant.  Well, I don't think the summoning of their appearance in my dream is necessarily important in and of itself, but it did get me thinking.  If I've been too afraid of them to even picture them, then I have to imagine that at least something of what I've experienced over the years is real; at least real in the sense that it had a lasting effect. 

There have been incidents where I've received visions of greys and they've imparted strange messages to me.  For instance, about two years ago I was staying at my childhood home to watch the family dog while my parents were out of town.  As I was on the couch watching television I suddenly had the overwhelming urge to close my eyes.  It felt like something was trying to push its way into my consciousness from the outside.  A perfect image of a grey with its bulbous head and bulging eyes appeared in my mind and said "We are you."  I'll admit that I've been pondering what that could mean ever since, but that's a consideration for another day.  I know you may be wondering if I merely fell asleep and had a particularly vivid dream, and honestly, I've wondered the same thing.  I can only tell you that it didn't feel like a dream.  But even if it was a kind of dream, if I was incapable of evoking their image does that mean this vision must represent some outside intelligence at work?  From where did this vision originate if not from me?

You may be asking yourself if these visions merely represent some phenomenon similar to lucid dreaming, but I promise you I didn't consciously cause them, and I still don't accidentally dream of greys in their natural appearance.  As odd as it may sound, it was a lot of work to create the image of one for even a short amount of time in my dream, and it quickly morphed into something less offensive.  So where does that leave us?  Are visions like this merely a different level of my own consciousness interacting with itself?  Is there some outside intelligence with which I've had contact?  I honestly don't know.  I'd be happy to hear what you think about it, though.
