“chalomos shav yidabeiru”, but how seriously should one take a dream? i had a scary dream only one night, but it had too much real life in it, and involved to much of actualism. it seemed so real that it’s hard to say it means nothingSeptember 2, 2011 1:28 pm at 1:28 pm #805192

i had a really scary dream that the night before graduation, me or my friend was gonna break their right foot and go down to graduation on crutches.
the next day, there was a party at my teachers house and the ground was wet because we had water fights and played water games. we were playing a water game when my friend slipped and broke her right foot.
the next day was graduation. my friend came on her crutches and when it was her turn, she went down to graduation on crutches.
Exactly how my dream went. i dont know what the message was, but for me to have experienced something like that, Hashem had to have sent me a message. Then again, i dont know what it is.
if it bothers you, consult your rav. i’m sure he will know what to do!!September 2, 2011 4:19 pm at 4:19 pm #805194

Dreams are a big topic in the gemara, and sometimes one may even need to fast for them (I think the gemaras around ta’anis 14b).
However, the Cofetz Chaim writes that now, were we don’t live in shtetles, and thereby have substantial “outside” influence on a day to day basis, so dreams no longer have any repercussions in halachah.September 2, 2011 5:10 pm at 5:10 pm #805197
Um, the Chofetz Chaim lived in a shtetl.
Also, please source that alleged quote from the CC.September 2, 2011 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #805198
had a dream once that voldemort (yes i said his name)chased me to the pizza shop.September 2, 2011 10:02 pm at 10:02 pm #805199
Chein: I once heard I shiur on this very topic, and the Chofetz Chaim was quoted as having said this. Perhaps I am misquoting him to an extent, and I’m sorry but I don’t have a source. Take it on my word if you want.September 2, 2011 10:35 pm at 10:35 pm #805200
When I was in eretz YISRAEL for the year I went for a bracha from Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach, zt’l.
A short while later I was at the kotel very late at night and wanted to catch the last bus back. I noticed what looked like hundreds, if not a thousand people davening at the kotel. I decided not to linger as I was afraid to get stuck.
That night I had a dream that a simple wooden chair was hovering above my head. I woke up and felt it was very ominous. I told my roommates about it, and discussed walking back to the kotel to Daven (as a group). Since no one wanted to go, I stayed back, said some tehillim myself and read (ironically, a story about rav Shlomo Zalman when he was a child). The next morning when I woke up, I heard the news that Rav Shlomo Zalman was niftar.
I felt that the chair represented din and that HKB’H was trying to wake people up to Daven.
