Do you recall your dreams upon awakening? Most of the time, even if we don’t remember all the details, we can determine whether it was a pleasant or unpleasant dream. If it falls into the latter category, it might be time to acquire a dream catcher!
The Symbolism behind Dreamcatchers
The origins of dreamcatchers and the beliefs associated with their creation can be traced back to Native American cultures. The legend of dream catchers begins with a grandmother who prevents her child from harming a harmless spider. In gratitude, the spider promises to weave a web that will trap all the bad dreams, leaving only the good ones. That web is said to be the dream catcher!
However, proving whether dream catchers actually work or if there is any scientific evidence to support their effectiveness remains uncertain. The truth is, nobody knows for certain.
