Dreams, Seforim and Conflict Resolution

My late relative, Rav Avrohom Genechovsky, zt”l, was commissioned by the Chazon Ish to write a sefer on Masechet Horayot, which he called Cheder Horarti. My uncle, Rabbi Genack, shlita, tells over that Rav Avrohom encouraged him to pen a sefer based on the following story related to Rav Avrohom’s sefer, Cheder Horati. Rav Avrohom told my uncle that he wrote Cheder Horati for the memory of his mother, Gita Genechovsky, a”h. One day, Rav Werner, zt”l, a previous av beit din of Tel Aviv, called Rav Avrohom and told him that Rav Avrohom’s mother, Gita, came to him in a dream and told him that the answer to a pressing question he had relating to Masechet Horayot could be found in her son’s, Rav Avrohom’s sefer. Sure enough it was there. Therefore, Rav Avrohom told my uncle what a merit it is to write a book in one’s parents’ name, and my uncle penned that specific sefer, Gan Shoshonim, for the memory of his mother. There’s no question that throughout the millennia dreams have been conduits to reveal saintly secrets. It may also be said that dreams can be powerful vehicles to address real-time, personal, inner conflicts. Someone recently told me that if there’s something troubling you, you should write a few notes about it before you go to sleep to let the subconscious work on resolving it. Dreams are a gift that can be conduits for spiritual messages or vehicles to achieve mental clarity.
