So I've had two dreamcatchers in my life and both have brought on nightmares. My general dreaming stopped in elementary school and I seem to only get them now when they mean something such as a shooting or bombing. These nightmares that have been starting seem different, like purely the strangeness of dreams and probably relates to personal things, I'm just not sure. It feels abnormal to have such bad dreams each time I have a dream catcher.
My first dreamcatcher I thought just had negative energy around it because 1). It was purchased 2). Person that bought it and I hate each other 3). That person or house has a curse and negative entities that show up. I'm pretty sure they stopped when it was taken down.
So with this new one it was made for me by a family member. I thought that having some love put into it might not cause the nightmares, but now I'm really stuck. I had the most brutal dream yet.
The nightmares have always been bloody, suffering, noisy, which are way different than any nightmares I ever had even as a kid. I've dreamed about death before but never with blood or injuries, more of just a fear or concept. One dream was about gore everywhere with chains and blood. Last night it was a tidepool setting, a dog (possibly mine) still alive with its ribs poking through the skin, bloody water everywhere, then a hospital with a guy whos infected eye is all yellow and bulging from his face.
I've searched online and focused as well as I can. I read on a post on here that nightmares from dreamcatchers have a meaning. I'm pretty lost on what these potential symbols mean. I want to take it down, but if these nightmares can have a benefit I wonder if its worth it to just deal with them. Is it abnormal for it to be this crazy, or bloody?
My biggest fear with this is a spiritual one. Are these possible signs of the negative entities I have to fight off extremely often now starting to win, or maybe them getting a better footing?

Dream catchers are typically created to prevent nightmares and other bad dreams from occurring. It is possible for them to be constructed to the opposite so that they prevent good dreams from occurring,but I highly doubt that is the case here. A dream pillow may help calm the mind and prevent nightmares. I also suggest defusing some oils for relaxation and protection right before bed and as one falls asleep. Lavender, Vetiver, Chamomile, Ylang Ylang, and Cedarwood will help with calming the mind for sleep while Frankincense, Clove, Sandalwood, Basil, and Juniper will aid in protection. There are other oils for both of these purposes and I suggest researching them. A dream pillow can be made or purchased but one you make yourself would be the best. They are basically a pillow made from herbs and often reinforced with oils. I prefer using flax seed in mine as well as lavender and chamomile but they can be created out of many things. Oatmeal, feathers, cotton, and any dry herb can be used to stuff the pillow. I suggest staying away from synthetic materials such as polyester or nylon fiber fill. The pillow can also be small enough to just cover the eyes or large enough to rest the entire head on. There are also spell candles that can be utilized for dreams. They can be purchased or created. For more information about a dream candle please read the item description for the one we carry in the SoM shop.
