A Dream Catcher is a sacred circle or circle of life. Weaved onto the hoop are beads, feathers or other sacred items that represent your dreams. Good dreams are captured in the web, sliding down the feathers and into your life. Nightmares pass through the web. The spider symbolizes that we are the weavers of our own web of experiences. If we want to change what we are attracting into our life, we need to change the web of actions, thoughts and emotions that we’re putting out into our world.
