Dream catchers are proof that wind chimes come in all shapes and sizes. This Native American decoration is a beautiful addition to any home decor. The story behind the dream catcher is as interesting as the dream catcher itself.
Traditionally, a dream catcher was made for one at birth and kept throughout life, adding decorations as you wished. Upon death it was placed with you to help you on your journey into the next world. The decorations in the web represent bad dreams that are caught. The feathers are the path for the good dreams to flow through to you. The morning sun enters through the hole in the center to melt the bad dreams away in it's first light.
Dream Catchers are an ancient spiritual tool used to help assure good dreams to those that sleep under them. A dream catcher is usually hung over a place you would sleep where the morning light can hit it. As you sleep all dreams from the spirit world have to pass through the dream catcher.
A feather can be damaged by the rain, so dream catchers are better used as home decor than garden decor.
