Dream interpretation is an art that has mystified and influenced cultures around the world. The Amerindians have taken this art to another level by creating dream catchers. Our Dream Catcher site offers various items such as this orange Istu dream catcher which are enriched with symbolism in all their aspects.
Web of the cycle of life and creativity
As a totemic animal, the spider expresses creativity. These sensitive creatures are also in harmony with the world's smallest vibrations. The woven spider's web teaches the concept of the cycle of life. The care and detail of a spider's web are reflected in the design of the Dream Catcher's Web.
The orange Istu dreamcatcher's web brings in positive forces and protects from negative waves. It still plays the same role even for other models like this Achak dream catcher range. Indeed, the canvas translates the good and bad things that can happen in all stages of your existence. The small hole in the center is where good dreams pass. They can be stored and used to make your dreams come true.
Feathers to lighten dreams and minds with our Istu Orange dream catcher.
Like many other dreamcatchers, this orange Istu dreamcatcher is decorated with many feathers. It takes (usually) the same configuration as our authentic Oneida dreamcatcher. The most important feathers of a dreamcatcher are the ones close to the loop. Birds, in general, represent the element of air and the breath of life. However, each bird has its own symbolism as a spirit or totemic animal.
When placed in the dream catcher, the feathers reflect the lightness of dreams and spirit. They similarly express the way a bird can effortlessly climb to a very high point. The eagle, in particular, represents the ability to get close to the Creator. They were once the most used ornament for dream catchers. Consider the special significance behind each bird before selecting a special feather to attach near the hoop of a dreamcatcher.
Istu Dream catcher: Decorative beads in various shapes
A dream catcher should have pearls or magic stones. This is true regardless of whether they are woven into the net or suspended from the bottom. The Amerindians eventually used various magic stones to make sacred objects, as long as they were available:
Amethyst: This crystal works at sensory levels beyond those of humans. Perceived as a symbol of sincerity, it provides security and contentment.
Adventurine: It is a stone of luck, especially for finance. It stimulates creativity, intelligence, and perception. It also provides mental and emotional well-being.
Citrine: It is the stone of success. It provides courage, self-discipline, logic, and intellect. It also brings joy and optimism into the life of its owner.
Lapis Lazuli: It is the stone of friendship and truth. It brings harmony in relationships and helps its bearer to assert himself as an individual.
Hematite: It is known as the stone of grounding and alignment of qualities. Hematite improves memory, original thinking, and technical knowledge.
Quartz: It is the power of all healing stones. Quartz acts as an amplifier for psychic energy and facilitates meditation and visualization.
Tiger's eye: This stone enhances insight, clear thinking, and good judgment.
Turquoise: This is a healing stone. Turquoise attracts friendships, luck, and happiness. It also frees you from shame and guilt.
Nevertheless, pearls are more common than magic stones for the ornament of Istu dream catchers. Some Amerindian tribes expressed a history of several generations through their pearl necklaces. These were decorated with symbols and figures in flat pieces of turquoise or other types of stone. This orange Istu dream catcher is decorated with several beads, some of which are round and others in stick form.
Istu Dreamcatcher: A vibrant concept on the theme of sweets
An orange Sakari dream catcher is essentially a wooden hoop with an artificial spider web. The strings of the web are attached at several points on the circle. Each number of points on the dream catcher has different meanings:
13 points: the 13 phases of the moon
8 points: the number of legs on a spider
7 points: the seven prophecies of the grandfathers
6 points: an eagle or courage
5 points: the star
Today, dream catchers are created in a variety of styles and designs. They can have multiple hoops as is the case with our orange Istu dream catcher. They also vary in size from the smallest to the largest. This orange Istu dream catcher is 21 cm wide and 68 cm long.
Some models have a natural and traditional design. Others are created with a variety of vibrant colors and added materials as is the case with our Istu orange dream catcher and also the brownstone dream catcher style. The latter evokes the theme of sweets and sweetness in its concept. This is all the truer as the name 'Sakari' refers to sweetness or sugar in several languages. There is the word 'saccharum' in Latin, 'sarkara' in Sanskrit and even 'saccharin' in English.
Dream Catcher: Optimize the capture of good dreams with arrowheads.
Native Americans saw dreams as a source of guidance. The arrowhead was used here as a means of encouraging such dreams. The pointed shape and solid material of the arrowhead symbolize direction and endurance. The addition of an arrowhead to an orange Istu dream catcher makes it possible to triumph over any obstacle.
Medicine wheels are the most common form of arrowhead dreamcatcher. However, it must be established that medicine wheels are more of a concept than a physical object. The dreamcatcher is only one of the many forms that a medicine wheel is likely to have.
However, all possible forms come together on a common concept of great value. On this Istu model or on the traditional Anaba dreamcatcher, we always find the alignment and continuous interaction of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual realities. The circular shape represents the interconnectedness of all aspects of your being, including connection to the natural world. The Medicine Wheels are often seen as the circle of awareness of the individual self. They give the power that each person can have over his or her own existence.
