Dreamcatchers are nowadays increasingly decorative items and souvenirs. However, the original purpose of dream catchers has been to filter out bad dreams and negative thoughts.
According to the beliefs of the indigenous peoples, bad dreams and negative thoughts get caught in the dream catcher's net and flow down the feathers to the ground. According to another story, bad dreams rise with the morning dew to the stars, from where they do not return.
Hang the dream catcher in the bedroom above the bed. The dream catcher is said to ward off bad dreams and attract good dreams.
