I obtained this dream catcher at a Powwow in Stanford. It was made by a grandma from the Apache Tribe. If your mind is jumbled, hang one of these above your bed. Good dreams filter through and slide down the feathers to you. Movement of feathers show passage of a good dream. Bad dreams get caught in the net and disappear at sunrise. Gemstones or an owl feather or an eagle feather is placed in center of each web (or in my case a turtle). The turtle is being called for protection and represents precious water, essential for life.
