How Does DreamCatcher Catch Dreams?

Humans have long been fascinated by dreams. Some try to remember and interpret them. Others forget dreams as soon as they wake. In some American Indian cultures, people try to influence their dreams. How? With dream catchers!

How exactly do dream catchers . . . well, catch dreams? Some say good dreams pass through the web. They float down the hanging beads and feathers to sleeping children. Bad dreams, however, are caught in the web. As the first rays of the morning light hit the dream catcher, the bad dreams disappear. Children sleeping under a dream catcher are thus said to be protected from nightmares.

Others interpret the dream catcher’s function in a different way. They say instead that bad dreams pass through the holes in the web and exit out the nearest window. The good dreams, on the other hand, get caught in the web. They slide down the beads and feathers to the sleeping child below.

However dream catchers are believed to work, their underlying meaning and symbolism remain the same. They serve a protective purpose. Those who believe in dream catchers say that they act as a filter for dreams. They send good dreams to the sleeper and the bad dreams away.

Where do you place dream catchers for them to work best

Dream catchers were intended to work best when you hang them at least half a foot above your bed just above your head when you sleep at night. The reason this is so is based on it’s original design which was intended that the dream catcher serves as a net that captures and stores the bad dreams while letting the good dreams fall down onto your head letting you have pleasant dreams. This is the main reason why you would hang a dream catcher above your head so that it will work most effectively. It is for this reason that they were invented and intended to be used, however in the modern world to this day some people have recorded that hanging a dream catcher just in your room will have the same effect as having it directly above your head.

Where should you not hang a dream catcher

Above we advised as to the best place to hang a dream catcher, however there are a number of places you shouldn’t place a dream catcher. It is popular to have dream catcher all around your home, some people have them in their vehicles or cars or a small one hanging from their bag. However there is no “bad” place to hang dream catchers. The only thing is that they will not work as effectively or not work at all if they are not above you when you sleep or at least in the same room at night.

This brings me to the question of whether it would be safe to have a dream catcher not in your bed. In order for a dream catcher to work effectively it must be around somebody when they sleep. A dream catcher will catch any bad spirit that is lurking as well as catching good ones floating around. If you have a dream catcher that is in your living room for example it will capture and store good and bad dreams and may prevent them from actually reaching you causing a reduction in good, bad and all dreams in general.

My Advise would be that if you are looking to use dream catchers to stop bad dreams only have one in your bedroom or room where you sleep. Don’t have it in any other room or even your car at night as it may stop your dream catcher from working correctly.
