About Dream Catchers
Dream catchers were originally made by the grandparents of the American native Ojibwa tribes. The web represents a spider’s web and each dream catcher has a hole in the centre. The web catches the bad dreams which melt in the sunlight, and the good dreams pass through the centre hole and travel down the feather suspended from the centre.
It is believed that when you make a dream catcher, you should clear your thoughts and be at peace, because whatever energy surrounds you will be transferred to the dream catcher.
Dream catchers look good against a wall as a decoration. However, hang them near a bed if you want to catch your dreams and in a window that catches the sunlight to melt the bad dreams.
A dream catcher’s healing powers are said to be greater when it’s a gift. You can personalise your gift by adding bits and pieces which hold special significance for the recipient.
My dream catcher is in the shape of a heart, traditionally a dream catcher is a circle.
