Some of you may have heard about dreamcatcher. Its a symbol of hope and healing. some people believe that its a talisman which is used for protection from nightmares or bad dreams.
If I talk about its history. Its originated from ojibwe or lakota origins. The ojibwe word for dreamcatcher (asabikeshiinh) actually means ‘spider’. While many cultures find spiders to be creepy crawlers, the ojibwe people found them to be a symbol of protection which brings comfort.
According to ojibwa story. A mystical spider woman served as a spiritual protector for young childrens or babies. When ojibwe people started to migrate farther away from the land. It became difficult for her to continue to protect and watch all the peoples of tribe. So she created first ‘dreamcatcher‘
There are many mythical stories and many interesting traditional stories behind ‘dreamcatcher’. Which makes it special and beautiful.
Native Americans believe that night air is filled with dreams both good and bad. So when hung above the bed where the morning sunlight can hit it, the dreamcatcher attracts and catches dreams and thoughts in its web. Good dreams and thoughts pass through and gently slide down the feathers and comfort the sleeper. While bad energies caught up in protective net and burned up in the light of the day.
(I put a star with feather which represents its brightness will slowly slide down to the feather from the star and will lighten up your dreams and world) (the flowers shows blessings) (the half moon represents even in the darkest night it will be there to keep you calm)
