History

Native Americans believe that the night air is filled with dreams, both good and bad. When hung 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 web. Good dreams pass through and travel down the feathers to comfort the sleeper below. Bad dreams, however, are caught in its protective net and destroyed, burned up in the light of day. 

All parts of the authentic Native American dreamcatcher have meaning tied to the natural world. 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. The web catches the bad dreams during the night and disposes of them when day light comes. As for the good dreams, the feathers act as a ladder that allows them to gently descend upon those sleeping to provide comfort. There is some contention when it comes to the meaning of the beads that decorate the dreamcatcher. According to some American Indians, the beads symbolize the spider—the web weaver itself. Others believe the beads symbolize the good dreams that could not pass through the web, immortalized in the form of sacred charms. 

It has become increasingly difficult to find traditional and authentic Dream Catchers, made with true spirit, genuine care and intention. I take pride in creating these magical works of protection and art alongside being a woman of Native American, Cherokee, descent. If your bed does not fall in the natural pathway of sunlight, you can hang it in your window so that the sun rays can remove the bad dreams collected in its web.
