Dreamcatchers

Post # 1
So, I have 2 dream catchers made from mostly Forsythia and willow I'm waiting to dry out some. Curious what people know about various woods and their metaphysical implications when it comes to their uses. The forsythia seemed ok when I plucked it for use.

Oh yes. There are 13 main woods that people use for various things, and there is a list of them somewhere. But every wood has special properties. Some stats vary depending on where the information comes from. I trust natives with these things most.

Dream catchers were actually made by Native Americans as a charm for babies' sleeping places to keep away nightmares. The feathers moving from any breeze also entertained the baby while falling asleep. They were made from bendable branches and sinew. The story is that the web catches all dreams. The good ones rain down from the feathers, and the bad ones get caught in the bead on the web. In the morning, the bad are either blown away by wind, or burned away by sun.
As far as knowledge of the different woods, I believe there is one, or more, thread about them on here. Using the search bar will help.
Blessed be...

According to a friend who has lived with a couple different Native American tribes, some believe that a dream catcher is not meant as a permanent thing; it is meant to serve its purpose and wear out (basically, as it will eventually deteriorate).

It will lose potency over time, but oak loses its power the slowest. I would suggest using oak wood.
