Wrap your little one in the Protection of the Dream Catcher and let them dream all of the good dreams.
The dream catcher is one of the most enduring and widespread symbols associated with Native American culture.
It’s commonly believed that the iconic hoop-and-web form is meant to protect sleepers from bad dreams by “catching” them, while letting good dreams pass through, hence the name.
There are many stories behind the meaning and tradition of the dream catcher. The most common meaning of the dream catcher, originating from the Native American Ojibwe tribe, is that it filters the bad dreams away, protecting you from evil and negativity.
Ojibwe people believe that the night air is full of dreams good and bad.
The dream catcher was created to capture the dreams and filter out the bad ones.
The legend of the dream catcher is to only let the good in and protect ourselves from evil.
The good dreams find their way through the center of the circle while the bad get caught and with the first sign of daylight they disappear.
Dream catchers were hung above baby’s cradles to protect them, and helping them sleep as they get mesmerized by the swaying of the feathers. Larger dreams catchers were hung at the head of the household to allow good dreams and thoughts throughout the family.
In many Native American tribes, a dream catcher is a handmade willow hoop woven to a web or literally, a net. Like a spider web.
They can include feathers and beads, and they're traditionally suspended on cradles as a form of armor and protection.
Dream catchers are widely viewed as a symbol of oneness.
Each part of the dream catcher had meanings tied to the physical world. One beautiful meaning is the dream catcher has a round shape that represents the earth's shape and that of the Medicine Wheel.
The web catches bad dreams at night and discharges them during the day. The feathers, on the other hand, act like filters allowing good dreams to descend on the infant or adult who is sleeping.
More recently, dream catchers have been used as a shared symbol of hope and healing.
