The dreamcatcher originally comes from the Ojibweg or Chippewa, a Native American tribe from North America.
The original dreamcatcher was made of a flexible branch connected by tendons to a circle, to which feathers were then attached. The ring refers to the circle of life.
There are many stories and legends, and the best known and common story goes as follows:
We know that the Native Americans hung the dreamcatcher above their children’s bed. It is believed that the sky is full of both good and bad dreams. The dreamcatcher is believed to catch the bad dreams in its web and they are burned by the first rays of the sun. Good and sweet dreams find their way effortlessly and slide down through the feathers to the head of the sleeping child.
It is said that many children with sleeping problems benefit from the dreamcatcher. The reassuring story makes many children sleep peacefully.
Nowadays, it is also often used in the workplace or in the living room as an aid to catch wandering thoughts, because it is believed to improve concentration. It is also often used as a decoration around and in the house.
Turquoise is also called the Lord of the (semi)precious stones. The colours vary from apple green to deep sky blue. This stone was used by the original inhabitants of America, the paleo Indians, for visions and making contact with the spiritual dimensions.
