On the other hand, the Talmud writes that the interpretation of dreams is in the hands of the interpreter (55b), and that an unexplained dream has no significance at all – as an unread letter (55a).
Finally, the Talmud states that people are shown in dreams that which they were thinking about during the day (55b), and that even significant dreams contain their share of nonsense (55a).Based on the above, dreams appear to be a mixture of different elements. Judaism sees dreams as usually inconsequential but once in a while significant.where a person sees certain objects or experiences certain events) and explains their significance.The answer is that even prophetic dreams are not absolute prophecy.
They foreshadow a potential future but not events set in stone. If a person offers a compatible interpretation for a dream, his very words may direct the spiritual force of the dream differently and for the better.
(And in fact, the Talmud writes that many types of dreams usually mean one thing, but can be interpreted to mean something else.) Finally, some dreams may be the actual word of prophecy filtering through our consciousness, entering our dreams. “she’kol”.) Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto , 18th century Italian rabbi, Kabbalist, and ethicist, explains the significance of dreams (Derech Hashem 3:1:6).
When we sleep, most of what happens is that our bodies rest and our brains are given the chance to sort out the thoughts of our day. The higher parts of our souls become slightly detached from our bodies.
While there, they may interact with other spiritual entities, such as angels, and may hear (or overhear) some of what the future holds in store for man.
The message may be actual prophecy, or simply an omen – depending upon the level of being which communicates with the soul.
On the one hand, the Talmud calls dreams 1/60th of prophecy (57b).
