diy - catching dreams 'sagetex emerald feather'

dream channeling with Navajo wrapped dream catchers and emerald feathers

Soft white small catchers with emerald green feathers and coco beads. Embrace the Native Americans and weave a web to allow the good dreams to channel down to a bliss sleeping state. Traditionally the catcher is a small hoop of a few inches in size with a hole in the center, representing strength and unity. The feather guides the good dreams down whilst the bad ones get lost tangled and stopped in the web, dying in mornings first light. I have these above my bed, on my work inspiration wall, indoor tree and my goldfish even have some hanging above their giant tank. I see many catchers made with thread but found that fluffy white wool was a unique soft variant. I used scrap Navajo fabric used to make fabric ribbon (link coming) which was used to make my mantle ‘Green Navajo Cocoon kimono’ from Imbolc Brighids celebrations, in this transition of the winter to Spring equinox (link coming). From Chapter ‘Dream Catch’ (Link)
