Recurring Dream

Question

I’ve had a reoccurring dream since I was a child. It’s always of a stranger trying to kidnap me and it’s usually nighttime when it happens. In the dream I suspect they’re after me and I start to run away and they start running after me. I always wake up before they can get me. Can you possibly tell me what my dream means?

There have been a couple of times where they kidnap my little sister and I’m trying to save her, but I wake up before I can get her back. However, I think that comes from my natural instinct to protect my little sister. Anyway, most of the time it’s me in the dream.

Please help me.

  1. While it is possible that there is a dimension of truth to dreams, in general the rule is that dreams reflect subconscious thought. This is mentioned in the Talmud.

    Having said that if you are terribly concerned about your dream I would suggest that you contact Rav Yaakov Hillel. Chacham Hillel is an internationally renowned Kabbalist, wise and sensitive. He lives in Jerusalem and he speaks fluent English (as well as Hebrew).
    Chacham Hillel can be contacted at: 972-2-582-5662.
