What is it?
Good dreams are sure to come along if you hang a dreamcatcher above your bed. Dreamcatchers are handmade crafts that consist of a round hoop woven with a loose web of yarn and decorated with beads and feathers hanging below the hoop (check out our different options here).
Dreamcatchers got their start in the Native American nation Nation. Today, they often serve as a symbol of Native American culture in general.
How Does it Benefit Me?
Dreamcatchers are like a filter for your dreams. Legends held that the spider web design of a dreamcatcher would allow good dreams to pass through and float down the hanging beads and feathers those sleeping. Bad dreams, however, would be caught in the web. As the first rays of the morning light hit the dreamcatcher, the bad dreams would disappear. A dreamcatcher is nightmare protection to the max!
For some, dreamcatchers have a broader meaning than just being a sleep aid. For these people, dreamcatchers are totems that represent good energy and help to neutralize bad energy — whether you're awake or asleep!
How Do I Use it?
Hang it above your bed or place of rest. The dreamcatcher will do all the work for you! They also make beautiful decorative pieces!
