“The dreamcatcher filters out the bad dreams and allows only good thoughts to enter our minds when we are asleep. The bad dreams get caught in the knots of the web and a small hoop in the center of the dreamcatcher is where the good dreams come through. At first light of day, the bad dreams get burned away.” -Ojibway Legend
