The dream catcher is ideally a filter of dreams. There are beliefs that it lets in only good dreams, and filters out bad dreams. Dream catchers are mostly used for infants and children to make sure that only positive energy flows through them.
Normally, a dream catcher is hung above the cradle in direct view of your children. It just looks like a toy!
Call it a myth or a popular prodigy; this is made to protect the newborns and children from bad dreams, nightmares, and negative charms.
Also called as a sacred hoop; it is made up of handmade willow hoops, on which a web-shaped net is woven tightly.
This might resemble a spider’s web. The hoop being connected to eight points around looks like widespread legs of a spider. The bottom end of the hoop will be decorated with feathers, beads and other decorative materials.
Spider webs are renowned for catching whatever passes through them. It is believed that the good dreams pass only through the centre hole of the web, and glides via the feathers to reach the sleeping individual. Bad dreams which are allegedly caught up in the web net, and will vanish once the sunlight hits in the morning.
