You’ve probably seen a dream catcher hanging above the bed but do you know about its purpose and meaning?
Dreamcatchers were traditionally used as talismans to protect sleeping people from bad dreams and nightmares.
When hang above the bed in a place where the morning sunlight can hit it, the dream catcher attracts and catches all sorts of dreams and thoughts into its mesh. Good dreams pass through and gently slide down to comfort the sleeper below. Bad dreams, however, are caught up in its protective net and destroyed, burned up in the light of day.
The shape of the dreamcatcher is a circle because it represents the circle of life and how forces like the sun and moon travel each day and night across the sky.
