Want Good Dream? Go For The Dream Catcher
Dreams are not just the effects of some brain activity during sleep. They have a deep impact on our emotions. Waking up from a vivid and positive dream brings with it hope, excitement and aspirations for the future. Good dreams are cherished experiences we certainly do not want to part with. In traditional Feng Shui, there is a tool known as a ‘Dream Catcher’ which traps good dreams and provides protection from bad dreams or nightmares. The Feng Shui Dream Catchers are commonly wooden hoops with a loose net woven over them with extensions of feathers or beads.
Bedroom: The primary purpose of these sacred items is to shield sleeping people, especially babies and children, from bad dreams and their negative effects. So, hanging them over or near the bed is the ideal placement of dream catchers.
Doors/windows: The entry point of the energies such as the front door or windows is an alternative location for placing the dream catchers. They can also be hung on the porch or balconies, even in the car for protection.
Types of dream catcher
Dream Catchers nowadays are available in different materials. However, for best effects it is important that the object contains the five vital elements of nature, earth, fire, water, wood and metal. Always choose dream catchers which are made of natural elements rather than artificial products. Also, it is believed that dream catchers should be gifted and not taken on purpose.
There are many varieties of dream catchers available in the market; with the sacred hoop, that denotes the circle of life, made of wood or metal while the feathers are of birds like peacock, hawk, owl or eagle. Dream catchers have also evolved as key chains and ornaments like earrings, pendants, anklets and bracelets.
