In the Native American culture, the dreamcatcher is a well-known symbol that has deep-rooted meanings and beliefs…….. dreams that humans have while they sleep, are sent by sacred spirits as messages.
According to their Legend, in the center of the Dream Catcher there is a hole. Good dreams are permitted to reach the sleeper through this hole in the web. Trapped in the web, and then slide down the feathers to the sleeping person.”.As for the bad dreams, the web traps them and they disappear at dawn with the first light. Nightmares pass through the holes and out of the window.
So the dreamcatchers would filter and allow good thoughts to enter our mind. Once the sun rises, all bad dreams just disappear.
For a feeling security and well-being.
-It is believed that having a dreamcatcher can protect you from evil spirits and negative energy.
-It is also believed to represent the sheer freedom that nature can offer and the integration of man with things from the nature like the trees and the animals -It can also be chosen to show respect and love for an ancient tradition and set of beliefs that could turn their inner fears into something so beautiful and creative
Dreamcatchers represent tradition and they have been handed down for generations. For some, they are the symbol of Native American unity. But for others, dreamcatchers are simply tacky tourist souvenirs .
By learning the meanings behind these beautiful, woven circles, you can gain a deeper appreciation of the craft and the beliefs behind their creation……..Giving someone a dreamcatcher (whether it is one you’ve made yourself or one you’ve purchased tells the giver that you care about him and his peace of mind……..
So I made a dreamcatcher for you to sleep well ……to have a wonderful night and amazing dreams….and remember to do all you can to make your dreams come true……..
“Dreams are necessary. Like the air, without realizing it, I, you, and we all need dreams. The dreams that guide us on what we do today because today is the answer to our dreams the other day.”
― Alanda Kariza
“Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.” ―Kahil Gibran
