Dream Catcher Meaning and Origin
Dream Catcher originated from the Native American people and they believed that it helps to filter dreams by catching the good one and allow it to slid down through the fluffy feathers to the one sleeping below it. Beside that, it also help to trap the bad dream in the protective net and clearing away the negative energy during sunrise the next morning.
The dream catcher is circular in shape that represent the life’s circle and it is often being known as the scared hoop. In the asian countries, you can find dream catcher that has peacock feathers attached instead because the peacock is a symbol of good luck/enlightenment and also believed to be an earthly manifestation of the powerful phoenix.
