Soft Sculptured Dream Catcher Wall Hangings,
Handmade by Mystic Penelope
Woven with the light and wisdom of the ancients through my own hand as a channel for light. Each one is individual and unique depending on the frame, threads, beads, feathers and individual items woven into them. Some feathers are used in there natural state, others are dyed, some are painted and even glittered.
These emerged as a project from the study of traditional native crafts, from recycling odd bits and collecting objects in nature. They are also an embodiment of a belief the natives had about the finely woven etheric web of our thoughts, our souls energy that is represented in a spiders web. The natives believed that if you slept beneath a spiders web, it would protect you from evil and bad dreams. As the web only lets good spirits travel through it, whilst bad spirits and low vibrations get trapped in the web. There for dream catchers became known as amulets of protection for the soul from the mysteries of the universe. The center also represents the heart of love, the heart of oneness, whilst the feathers represent our higher divine self, that rises in love as we ascend our lower ego self. The spiders web itself is also known to reflect the colours of the rainbow when captured in sunlight, which is the colours of the light energy body all humans, animals and plants have, although it is not seen by the naked eye. Further to that the spiders web is also a collector of the morning due drops, so it is cleansed and refreshed each day. Whilst the spider itself is a nuturing mother of its young. The hoop represents the universe on its spinning axis.
