Healing Lesson of the Day

<previous> 01/27 <next>
The earliest dreamcatchers or sacred hoops were crafted by parents to protect their children from nightmares. Dreamcatcher charms were woven to imitate spider webs and hung from the hoop on the cradle. The intention was for the webbed charms to protect their sleeping babies from tricksters through the night.
