Spiritual Meaning of Dream Catchers
The dream catcher is also associated with the Lakota tribe.
There is a story about an old spiritual leader of Lakota who had a vision on a mountain.
In the vision, Iktomi, trickster, and searcher of wisdom, appeared in the form of a spider and spoke to him in a sacred language.
While speaking he started weaving a web from willow hoop, feathers, and horsehair and finally gave it to the elder.
When handing it over, Iktomi informed the elder that the web was a perfect circle with a hole in the center to filter good ideas which would help people reach their goals.
The outermost circle represented Mother Earth and its circular shape was symbolic of the endless flow of energy and circle of life from birth to death.
At a deeper level, it became a symbol of God and Creation.
