Dreamcatchers and Power Animal Nets
Dreamcatchers are part of old Native American tradition. They were protecting charms for the sleeping, hung above the bed to bring good dreams and thoughts. Night-air is said to be full of good and bad dreams, and that’s why it was important to have a dreamcatcher near, guarding over you; only good dreams found their way through the net, when the bad ones got entangled among it and finally burned away by the first light of the morning sun.
Power Animal Nets are my own idea, inspired by Dreamcatchers. The difference is that Power Animal Nets are made of three tree-branches tied together, forming a triangle. A power animal figure made of clay is attached in the center of the net, and different color threads, feathers or paw/footprints are added as decorations.
There is so much in common with dreamcatchers about these nets, that the power animals can also be seen as
Dream Guardians, who can guide and keep you safe in the dreamworld.
Power Animal Nets are made for the honour of animals
and the powers and energies each of them represents.
