DREAM CATCHER -
A dreamcatcher is based on a willow hoop on which is woven a net or web of sinew. It is then decorated with personal and sacred items such as feathers and beads. Dreamcatchers originated in the Ojibwa Nation and were adopted by Native Americans of a number of different Nations. Some consider the dreamcatcher a symbol of unity among the various Indian Nations, and a general symbol of identification with Native American or First Nations cultures. Others believe that dreamcatchers protect sleepers from nightmares, allowing only good dreams to pass through and catching bad dreams in the net where they perish in the light of day.
SPIRIT SHIELD -
Shields are ancient ceremonial tools, providing protection from that which would harm or divert one from the good path, bringing strength and healing through ones power totems, Spirit Animals and Beings, and Mother Earths elements.
A design symbolic of the universe that is used in Hinduism and Buddhism as an aid to meditation. A Native American mandala is a hoop similar to a dreamcatcher but instead of a web the hoop is filled with yarn, feathers, fur and usually has feathers hanging from the bottom. A mandala is something you use in ceremony or hang for prosperity and good fortune on a door or wall inside your office, home, hogan, or tipi.
