The Dreamcatcher represents the sacred hoop, the great circle of life of which we are all apart. The web design is symbolic of our brother, the spider. The spider’s web is spun in one continuous strand. As is the Dreamcatcher making it symbolic of eternity, reminding us that the spirit is eternal and lives on even after death.
The Dream Catcher is intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams while letting positive dreams through. The Dream Catcher when hung over or near your bed, catches the dreams as they flow by. The positive dreams would slip through the hole in the center of the Dream Catcher, and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below. The negative dreams would get caught up in the web and disappear with the first rays of Father Sun.
