The yin yang dream catcher is a decorative object adopted today by all cultures to decorate their interior and protect the sleep of their children. It has even been declined over time in accessories, jewelry and tattoos.

If you are used to classic dream catchers, this Yin Yang Dream Catcher will stand out from the other models available in our store such as the Nahima Dream Catcher and in the market in general.


THE YIN YANG DREAM CATCHER, SACRED OBJECT OF THE AMERINDIANS

The Amerindians paid a very particular attention to their dreams. They made these dream catchers to protect their sleep and eliminate their nightmares.

For centuries, they placed this object above their bed, against the wall. They would also arrange for the sun to shine through its web at dawn to dispel the trapped nightmares.

The dream catchers were then spread all over the world, and especially in Europe via the New Age culture during the 1960s and 1970s.

However, many of these dream catchers did not respect the dimensions and composition of the real Native American dream catchers.

In 1990, the U.S. Congress passed a law that made false advertising of Native American artifacts totally illegal, including by-products such as dream catcher tattoos and dream catcher jewelry.


THE SYMBOLISM OF YIN-YANG

This Yin Yang Dream Catcher merges the Native American belief in dreams and their power with the Chinese Yin Yang symbolism, originating from Taoism.

In Taoism, Yin and Yang represent the duality present in the cosmos. Yin is associated with darkness while Yang represents light.

Together they form any balance present in the cosmos.


THE COMPOSITION OF THE YIN YANG DREAM CATCHER

The elements of the Yin Yang dream catcher correspond to the fundamental principles of the Amerindians:

The circle: Represents the infinite cycle of life.
The web: Allows to capture nightmares and dreams
The beads: Represent the captured dreams
The feathers: Allow good dreams to penetrate the mind of the sleeping person

A BLACK AND WHITE DREAM CATCHER TO DECORATE YOUR HOME.
