dreamcatcher

The shape of the dreamcatcher is a circle because it represents the circle of life and how forces like the sun and moon travel each day and night across the sky. The dreamcatcher web catches the bad dreams during the night.

The night air is filled with good and bad dreams. The legend of the dreamcatcher is that it captures the bad spirits and filters them in so protecting us from evil and letting through only the good dreams.   It is believed that each carefully woven web will catch bad spirit dreams in the web and disappear by perishing with the first light of the morning sun.

So…does the unicorn exist now or ever? Perhaps whatever we can imagine with the mind does exist.  

Long before the pearly white unicorn of European lore, a one-horned, magical animal was said to roam the Eastern world: the Asian unicorn. First mentioned in written stories around 2700 BC, this unicorn is described as a creature of great power and wisdom. Always benevolent, it avoids fighting at all costs and walks so softly it will not crush a blade of grass. And no one but the very pure of heart should ever see it.

Walk tall as the trees;
Live strong as the mountains, 
be gentle as the springs winds,
keep the warmth of the summer sun 
in your heart, and the Great Spirit
will always be with you.

We wish for something to change. We want it to be different. We dislike what is happening now. In that very instant of waiting for ‘different’ we have missed an opportunity. If we could only accept the way it is, we would pass through the portal into heaven.
