Dreamcatcher decoration and marigold trap
Many believe in the mystical power of a dream catcher. According to legends, this room traps nightmares when you fall asleep. It filters out the self-destructive thoughts and leaves only the constructive ones. The positive energies that escape from its nets will take refuge behind the feathers that are suspended from the famous circle of life (ring).
In practice, the dream catcher retains the beautiful images of ourselves and others. And it works if you believe in it! All buried bad thoughts are burned away by the first light of the day. Indeed, legend has it that this object is placed on the window sill. Thus, it removes nightmares stuck between the meshes with the force of the sun. But many prefer to install it above the bed. It's also another way to keep out negative waves.
If you have a child, instead of the musical cuddly toys, hang a dream catcher over the crib. We know that even small children have bad dreams at night. You can hear them crying, screaming, etc. In this case, this handcrafted piece from the Huron culture can help him sleep well. It keeps the pretty dreams of your offspring while protecting them from nightmarish images.
In addition to protecting against the evil that pulls down, the Indian dream catcher is also a much appreciated decorative element. There is a wide range of models for sale on the Internet by the creators themselves.The legends of the craft dream catcher
The story of the dream catcher varies from tribe to tribe. The Huron culture gives pride of place to dreams, according to which the Great Spirit at the origin of the world communicates with men while they sleep. And any thoughts that awaken or are created at that time are in fact only the expression of the needs of the soul. A dream catcher intervenes to control them.
According to the legend, this mystical object was used following a misadventure suffered by an Amerindian hunter. One day, while hunting as usual and crossing the rivers, he discovered an imposing cave. He went there in the hope of finding something to feed his brothers and sisters. As he entered it, he was confronted by a ferocious beast. Suddenly, the young man ran away. He managed to get home safely. But unfortunately, he brought nothing to his siblings.
Since that day, the image of that animal has haunted him night and day. He couldn't sleep peacefully until he woke up and saw a spider's web above his head, between the trees, shining in the first light of dawn. A priori he fell asleep in the forest. He came back there every night to sleep there under his two ears.
Another legend of the Objibway tribe tells that there was a spider named Asibikaashi who with time could no longer weave his web under the children's bed and proposed to the women to do the same with natural fibers and a wooden hoop. The women did not hesitate for a moment to create a handmade dream catcher.
The Micmacs believe in the story of the little spider that evokes its sadness to a grandmother who is sewing textiles. The little beast asks the old lady why everyone is afraid of her. Saddened to see her, the seamstress told her that "from now on, every time a spider weaves its web above the bed, it will be used as a worry trap".
