The dream catcher is a protective talisman that is used to protect people from nightmares and bad dreams. The charm was usually used for young children and hung above their cradles or beds. Native American cultures believe that both good and bad dreams fill the air at night. The dream catcher acts like a spider's web by trapping the bad dreams or visions while allowing the good ones to filter through. The bad dreams caught in the web get destroyed when the sunlight of morning hits the dream catcher, while the good dreams filter down through the feathers and gently reach the sleeping person below.
Perhaps dream catchers are filters for our souls. What filters down is what we show the world. Our dreams are who we are after all. Dream on, Dreamers!! #lodw
