The magic of dreamcatchers: The magic of the dreamcatcher came to be many years ago, given to us in wisdom and spirit by our ancestors and their guides. We have always been deeply connected to our ancestral traditions, and to those of our Native American heritage personally, which we are deeply in tune with and we feel it in our bones and journey as spiritual practitioners. Using dreamcatchers in our homes and our space has been an integral part of our practice since we were children. This connection between the spirit and earthly realms was created to protect us from our nightmares by capturing them when we are asleep, keeping us safe and protected. Dreamcatchers are perfect gifts for those you care about in your life and are incredibly important to our children who have selected theirs and have them in their rooms for protection. We pass this heritage and tradition on to them so that any of their night terrors will be trapped within the web, and leave them only with beautiful, peaceful dreams.
