“Only good dreams would be allowed to filter through . . .Bad dreams would stay in the net, disappearing with the light of day.”
Wikipedia, Entry: Dream Catcher
Have you ever woken from a very vivid dream and felt sure that it was trying to tell you something? Or felt very strong emotions in a dream that seemed to stay with you through the rest of the day? Or perhaps just thought to yourself “Well, that was weird!” as you got up and on with your day? I know that when I’m going through times of change, or if I’m feeling stressed or emotional, my dreams seem to become more vivid, colourful and stronger in their imagery and emotiveness.
As well as being your mind’s way of processing the events of the day, dreams can be a powerful link to your subconscious mind and when examined closely, often provide clues to your deepest thoughts and feelings – including those that remain outside of your conscious
In Ojibwa (Chippewa) culture, a dreamcatcher (or dream catcher; Ojibwe asabikeshiinh, the inanimate form of the word for “spider” or bawaajige nagwaagan meaning “dream snare”, is a handmade object based on a willow hoop, on which is woven a loose net or web. The dreamcatcher is then decorated with personal and sacred items such as feathers and beads.
