I love dreamcatchers. They’re just so… dreamy! I find such peace and serenity when I make a dreamcatcher, and the best part is that every dreamcatcher is unique to the person holding it. I love making these as gifts because you get to hand pick the feathers, twine, stones, etc. for the person in mind. Each one has a unique story to tell.
I’ll never forget doing yoga in the forest at What the Festival surrounded by dreamcatchers cascading down from the trees. It was a magical moment that will stick with me forever. My entire life changed in that moment, as if all the dreams I never even knew I had were surrounding me. It was so magical that I'm hoping to contribute dream catchers of my own this year!
I believe that dream catchers are a symbol of friendship and unity, especially when given as a gift. So, whether you’re making a gift for a family member, a new friend, or yourself, you can use this guide to get started. And remember, every dreamcatcher is unique and there is no right or wrong way of doing it.
Dream catchers are a Native American tradition. They are intended to protect those dreaming from the negative dreams, while allowing the positive ones to flow through the loops and down the feathers. Of course, dream catchers can be left up to interpretation. I like to believe they represent strength and a sense of calm. May your dream catcher bring you peace!
