A dreamcatcher is a special charm to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, while letting positive dreams through. The positive dreams slip through the hole in the center of the dream catcher, and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person. The negative dreams will get caught up in the web, and dissipate when the first rays of the sun strike them. The dream catcher also helps little kids feel safe, protected and secure at night. It is advisable to hang this dreamcatcher above or around the bed or near a balcony or window.
