For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

29:8 dreams which ye cause to be dreamed. Even today, dreams are little understood. Many have interpreted their dreams as God’s messages to them, and indeed God has sometimes spoken through dreams, at least in Biblical times (e.g., Genesis 41:25; Matthew 2:22). However, the Scriptures warn against trusting in dreams told by false prophets (Jeremiah 23:32; etc.). This particular verse seems to imply that many of our dreams are caused by ourselves, and so would have no particular significance.
