Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
DREAM ANALYSIS : What is the symbolic meaning of "sudden" in dreams?

Sudden events in dreams can link to a sudden realization within you. E.g.

"I had to attend a funeral yesterday. But I realised that virtually all of the congregation had been in prison or done drugs. They have got to realise the importance of religion and save themselves. Otherwise they will be swept away. I know I am not without sin but I have sought the forgiveness of the Lord"[Dream Dictionary - I was suddenly outside, running for the hills]

"I tried out this new forum. But I was not given a very warm welcome. In fact they seemed a little distant. But perhaps its my fault as I was basically on a forum which holds different ideas than myself. They are really not willing to engage in any free thinking"[Dream Dictionary - I suddenly realise the stairs do not continue upwards]

"I found out that Misha was off work yesterday. She runs a homeless shelter and I overheard someone say she was off sick due to depression. Then I was trying to imagine what could cause her to have depression. Then I was thinking about the weather and how the bad weather may have got her down. Having to deal with so many homeless people and not been able to do anything to help them with all this rain about." [Dream Dictionary - Suddenly we took off and she was showing me outer space]

"I feel left out by my husband. I cannot get him to talk. There is obviously something wrong. If we cannot talk through problems then I cannot see the point of us being married. Thats the whole purpose of marriage to be able to share problems." [Dream Dictionary - Suddenly the jeweler and his father pull our a gun and point it at us]

"I recently broke up with my girlfriend and I now realise how badly I acted"[Dream symbol - all of a sudden I saw a huge snake ]

"I have just gained a promotion. But everyone is saying that I got this because I was favored by the boss. Now I have got to go out and convince everyone and its not going to be easy" [Dream Dictionary - Suddenly I find myself perched upon the spire of a church ]

Sudden events may suggest that you are thinking through some consequences that may result if you act rashly or if things go wrong. E.g.

"I got really annoyed by this guy who really irritates me yesterday. I want to really humiliate him because he is basically a petty individual. But I have got to resist the temptation. It may backfire" [Dream Dictionary - suddenly something very embarrassing happens]

"My mom found out yesterday that I know someone who is quite important and influential. Yet I also kept it secret how I know him as I meet him at illegal poker nights."[Dream Dictionary - I suddenly think of myself been tortured by the Germans]

"My mother has left for Japan. I have heard a rumor that she will stay there permanently. I know she has done that before. She just leaves without a warning. Its been worrying me."[Dream Dictionary - He suddenly turned into a hobgoblin]

"Yesterday was a real scare for me. I forgot my medications and had to get some emergency replacements from my doctor. It was not just the immediate scare as the incident brought to life my very real fears about my deteriorating health. So far I am coping but in the future I fear my health will change my life in ways I cannot even imagine"[Dream Dictionary - Then as suddenly as they burst into flame, the flame went out and there now appeared two disk shaped ships]

Sudden events in dreams may link to sudden changes in the fortunes of others. E.g.

"I visited a friend yesterday. She has been having some bad luck. I think she is overwhelmed by it all"[Dream Dictionary - Suddenly she tripped and fell into a deep narrow drain]

Suddenness in dreams can sometimes relate to real life events that happen quickly and do not give you time to think. E.g.

"Yesterday I ignored someone I knew from my former job. I did not mean too. I had so many good friends there but as time passes by I seem to fall out of touch with so many of them."[Dream Dictionary - Then suddenly I want to see what the distraction is]

"I felt really under pressure yesterday. But I did not like to show my frustration as I knew that people were watching."[Dream Dictionary - I suddenly take fright and cannot go]

"I know that this move is going to be difficult in the short term. Its such a long way. Yet I do know that its for the best. I am a little moody and stressed out at the moment. I have not got time to devote much attention to my daughter right now and she really has to do as she is told right now. It won't do her any harm and its all for the best." [Dream Dictionary - all of a sudden she howls and we find that one of the smaller bears have bitten her]

"I hate the job that I have got. I work in a strip club but even though I am not a stripper men seem to think they can make sexual comments in exactly the same way they do to the strippers. Though to be quite honest I do secretly like the compliments. Though I would never say it or admit it. "[Dream dictionary - all of a sudden the dragons egg started hatching]

Suddenness in dreams can sometimes relate to real life premonitions that are about to come true. E.g.

"I think the dream was a premonition of the day of the dream. I had a very bad back that day and did not know what to think. "[Dream Dictionary - suddenly the four walls fall down ]

"I think this dream is a premonition of the next day. My sister in law asked me for some money to help sort out some troubles. This was getting out of hand and I really did not want to help. Before she asked for money I had been quite sympathetic" [Dream Dictionary - Suddenly, my sister-in-law comes in to the bedroom]

"The dreamer had this dream and immediately realized that something was wrong. Everyone else thought her husband had run away. Yet she knew this was not there case. She told the sheriff he would be found in the woods and would not be alive. He had hung himself in the woods. The dreamer has since had this dream many times. "[Dream Dictionary - then all of a sudden the figure stops it gets really bright and everything goes black again ]

"Then the dreamer met the man in the dream that very morning for coffee and he looked like he had seen a ghost. He told her he had had a dream the previous night and then he described the exact dream. Right down to the laughter of children, and the bright white light. "[Dream Dictionary - suddenly we were together again on this deserted beach ]

Suddenness may suggest a sense of urgency within you. E.g.

"I have to get well because I have an job interview in two days time. I just will not get the job otherwise"[Dream Dictionary - I walk to the noose and suddenly images of my family flash across my head and I firmly refuse to be hanged, throw the hospital clothes off and walk out of the room]

"My boyfriend has recently joined the army. He is currently in boot camp, and there is very little communication between us. He had been my best friend for two years, until about a month ago, when he gathered the courage to tell me how he felt about me. He barely got his mailing address about two weeks ago, we wrote a few letter to each other about two each. It takes a long time to receive mail from each other because I am in California and he is doing training in Georgia. I really need to know how he feels. He left at a crucial point in the development of our relationship"[Dream Dictionary - all of a sudden, I remembered that the army was having a visiting day]

Suddenness in dreams can link to changes that have been taking place in your life. E.g.

"I really should get in touch with work and give a definite time for when I am due back. I know I have been told so often that its OK to take time off and I just need to let them know so they can make some arrangements. But I am not sure yet" [Dream Dictionary - Suddenly all the houses are moving]

"I am aware of the fact that my relationship with the guy in the dream is threatened by the circumstances of being so far apart. But I feel I can overcome these difficulties. However, it may take me some time to get together enough money to move to his city. It may even take up to a year."[Dream Dictionary - suddenly I am back in the classroom where I first met him]

Suddenness in dreams may link to different settings in your life. It may show that you live separate lives in some way. E.g.

"My coworkers think I am just some boring cleric. But yesterday I told them of my interest in photography and my own creative side. I think it quite shocked them"[Dream Dictionary - Then suddenly I have my camera with me but the lens is broken]

Suddenness may link to your fantasies and imaginations. E.g.

"I have a fantasy about this guy. I just wish he would take control and romance me. It would be just right and he would do everything. He would help calm me down and would recognise my innocence. It would be just perfect"[Dream symbol - suddenly I'm just in a short white towel]
