Wondering about the differences and similarities of dreamcatchers, suncatchers and wind chimes?
Dreamcatchers: Improve Your Sleep
Dream catchers are one of the most enthralling Native American rituals. A dream catcher is a handmade willow hoop woven into a web or net, including feathers and beads. Traditionally, they have been hanged from cradles as a type of armor and protection. The origins of dream catchers can be traced back to the Ojibwes. The Ojibwe people started the phenomenon, which spread to other tribes, civilizations, and even nations.
Each part of the dream catcher was associated with a particular real-world aspect. One significant implication is that the dream catcher has a circular shape, which corresponds to the physical form of the earth. At night, the web absorbs nightmares and releases them during the day. The feathers work as ladders, allowing good dreams to descend upon the sleeping newborn or adult.
Suncatchers: Catch Positive Energy From The Sun
A suncatcher or light catcher is a little decoration that is shiny, optical, and colorful. It may contain shards of glass or nacre and should be hung near a window to “catch” sunlight. A suncatcher is similar to an optical wind chime. Simple and abstract designs with chained moving parts, while more intricate designs with flora or wildlife. Suncatchers are thought to have been invented by Southwestern Native Americans.
Suncatchers capture the sun’s positive energy and energize the surrounding environment by dispersing it in the shape of rainbows and sparkles of light. The swirling rainbows and light specks dancing on your walls are sure to put a smile on your face.
Wind Chimes: Attracts good luck
Wind chimes are percussion instruments made up of suspended tubes, rods, bells, and other objects, frequently made of metal or wood. The tubes or rods are hanging along with some kind of weight or surface that the tubes or rods can collide with when the outside air’s natural movement blows them or another wind-catching surface. They are typically installed outside a building or home as a visual and auditory garden ornament. Wind chimes have been regarded as an example of chance-based music since the percussion instruments are struck according to the random effects of the wind blowing the chimes.
Many people are curious why wind chimes are frequently employed in feng shui adjustments. Wind chimes are used for two primary reasons: they generate sound energy vibrations and introduce the metal element, and metal is associated with clarity, efficiency, and delight. Have a metal wind chime if you wish to invoke the metal element’s properties.
