The Dreamcatcher

 

DREAM CATCHER – PROTECTION, DREAMS & MAGIC

In North American First Nations traditions, Dream Catchers are crafted by mothers and grandmothers for their children.  They weave these magical webs, using willow hoops and sinew, or cordage made from plants.

The dream catcher filters out all bad dreams and only allows good thoughts to enter our mind.  Good dreams pass through the web and slide down the feathers to the sleeper.  Bad dreams are caught in the web and once the sun rises, all bad dreams just disappear into the dawn.
