The dreamcatcher is from the Ojibweg or Chippewa, a Native American tribe from North America.
The original dreamcatcher was made of a flexible branch that was connected by tendons into a circle, after which the feathers were attached. The ring refers to the circle of life.
There are many stories and legends, however, the best known and most general story goes as follows:
We know that this Native American dreamcatcher hung over children’s beds. It is believed that heaven is full of dreams; good dreams but also bad dreams. The dreamcatcher catches the bad dreams in the web and these are then burned by the first rays of the sun. Beautiful dreams are not trapped, but they glide down through the feathers to the head of the sleeping child.
It is believed 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 a tool to catch wandering thoughts, because it is believed that will improve the concentration. It is also often used as decoration around and in the house.
