Does anyone have a dream catcher at home? Do you believe they work?

I actually have several in my home as my daughter made them this year for christmas gifts for everyone. I don't necessarily believe they work, however I will say I told my youngest daughter they would capture all her bad dreams and since then she's only had one nightmare.

As long as she believes it works that's what's important. Thanks.

a former friend of mine used to make them actually some of them were AMAZING and HUGE...one she made was an easy 5 ft tall (it was like a mobile of sorts I guess would be the best way to describe it) and it was gorgeous...

My 5 month old son got a dream catcher in present from one of his grandparents. So we hang it over his bed. I have no idea if it works or not yet. But it is a nice thing to have. And when he gets older I will tell him what a dream catcher is, and it might give him some security if he wakes up during the night.

Yes,and Yes.....as a North American Native,I do have them and in my culture they are not only a tradition for your home but they chase evil spirits away and keep you from having bad dreams......the last bad dream I can remember anyone having in my house was my oldest daughter at 4,she's 22 now.....the next day I went out and got a dreamcatcher and hung it above her bedroom door,she still has it,in her new place and says she hasn't had a nightmare yet.....

Really, I find this amazing. I looked it up online and so many people swear by it. I just wasn't sure if it really worked. Now I know it does. Thanks for sharing this with us. Thanks.

I was given a small dream catcher as a Christmas gift about 7yrs. ago and hung it over my bed. The cat we had at the time decided it was a funny place to hang 'his' toy and took it down. Came home and found feathers from one end of house to the other end. I love dream catchers and will always have at least one above my bed as well as in my living room. My daughter wants one now cause she has been having alot of nitemares last few weeks so gong to give her one for her upcoming b-day. And yes, I strongly believe they work. I love indian artwork and to me, dream catchers are the most beautiful art.

Yes, I have a dream catcher above my bed. I think that they work, I don't have nightmares. They are also very pretty, do you live near an Indian reservation? There is one out on the tip of Long Island.

I have been to an old Indian sacred landmark in Florida to have a spiritual reading there. You could feel the energy at that location. I read you have a dream catcher over your bed, I wonder if you wanted to dream of someone special if the dream catcher stops you from having this desired dream. Hmmmmmm.

Yes, we have a few dream catchers in the house. My youngest daughter learned how to make them at school. They are very pretty, and I love them as decoration, but whether or not they work I have no idea. Cheers!

We actually have quite a few of them in our house...I have one in my room that was given to me some yrs ago plus I have 3 or 4 smaller ones, my kids each have one in their rooms and I'd like to get more actually....I love dreamcatchers myself..not only are they beautiful but the legend behind them is wonderful (I've actually read two different legends) and they do sometimes work..nto all the time but sometimes..

I might only be about 1/8 Sioux, but I could scarcely even call myself that if I didn't have one. And yes, I think they do work, but I also think that the power in them mainly comes from personal belief.

Hello howard!(",) I like to buy a dream catcher because it looks nice as a decoration. I know it's doesn't work but I still would like to have one.(",) How about you? Do you have one and do you believe that it works? Great day!(",)

Hmmm! Maybe I should get one. I just had a dream the other night that woke me up in tears.

I am thinking the same thing, I keep having the same dream over and over again and it is not a good dream. When I get up my heart is always pounding and I have to wait a while before I go back to sleep because I am afraid I will continue with the smae dream.

Swift Bear with Dreamcatcher Staff - photo of my teddy bear I make
It's funny how I came across this discussion...by accident?? LOL I'm part Native American myself...some years ago, dreamcatchers were really, really popular..you could pick up any catalog just about and lo and behold there they'd be...So this was about ten years ago...I saw a few dreamcatchers and fell in love with them and would have loved to have ordered one...but my money was tight..so couldn't buy...so one night I'm re-looking through those catalogs, and wishing I could still get one when a little voice said...you can do that...So at that time I didn't even know there were kits to make them, and went ahead and made my own...I'm one of those people that if I study even a picture long enough I can figure out how something is made--now prior to this, I never made one single craft item...but who knows maybe it was the Native American in me that guided me to making them...now I not only make them, but make a lot of Native American based craft items and sell them---and yes, as you can imagine, I have my Dreamcathcers all over the place, including one very large one hanging in my window since the web of a dreamcatcher catches your bad dreams and they disappear upon the sunrise I don't have a picture of one of mine that I make, but I have a picture of my teddy bear that I make and he holds a staff with a dreamcatcher--and my "craft business" name is Dreamcatcher Visions--a tribute to what started my crafts in the first place

That is so nice, I have always been curious about the story behind Dreamcatchers, so many people say they work and they always have one in their home. Thanks.

What is that? Are you talking about some kind of good luck mascots? I am not sure if you are talking about that. But, if that's what it is about then I have a "laughing buddha", which is supposed to bring good luck. I have never noticed its effects though.

In googel type in "dream catcher" and look at the beautiful ones they show. It will explain what it does. Thanks you for responding.
