Dreamcatchers. It's hard to find someone who doesn't like one of those gorgeous, woven pieces of art whose story lies in the belief that hanging one over your bed can keep the bad dreams away. According to LegoMenon, dreamcatchers were traditionally used as talismans to protect sleeping people, usually children, from bad dreams and nightmares. The Native Americans believe that both good and bad dreams surround us and when they pass over us as we sleep, pass through and gently slide down the feathers to comfort the sleeper below while the bad ones were caught in the net and destroyed.
So which one of these dreamcatchers would you pick to protect your nights? And what does your choice say about your personality?
If you picked this dreamcatcher, you're the kind of person who enjoys simplicity. You appreciate the intricacies and complexities of the world but prefer to love the unembellished things in life. Whether it's leaving little love notes for your partner or just enjoying a walk in the park on your own, it's these things that make you happy. Being on your own isn't daunting but you value the relationships you have with your loved ones and will do anything to keep them strong and peaceful. Occasionally, you do get drawn into drama, even if it's against your will, but others look to you to help resolve it. So you power through and do your best to help your loved ones.
If you picked this dreamcatcher, you're the type of person who has a zest for life that no one can deny. You are always looking for the next adventure and someone to do it with, preferably your partner. You tend to go with the flow and adapting to new situations isn't very hard for you. Sometimes, this might lead others to think that you are "flighty" but those who love you know the depth of your loyalty. You know how to be grounded when the situation demands it and even do your best to make those who are feeling low cheered up. You have a way of motivating even the most upset people and that is a quality they are grateful for.
If you picked this dreamcatcher, you're the kind of person whose kind nature extends to everyone, regardless of who they are. It's this very nature of yours that attracts people to you and eventually gives you a large social circle. But occasionally, being kind to everyone means that there are some people who think they can take advantage of it. Because of how easily you trust and forgive, others think you're an easy target. Little do they know that hiding behind your kindness is someone smart enough to make out the difference between who is genuine and who isn't.
If you picked this dreamcatcher, you're the kind of person who is admired and applauded for their calm and cool demeanor. No matter how heated a situation gets, you know how to apply equal measures of logic and emotion to defuse the tension. People automatically look to you for guidance through their issues because they know your sense of objectivity and justice will help them on the right path. Sometimes this can get exhausting because you're doing this for everyone but you wonder whether there is anyone extending the same courtesy to you. But your sensitivity and empathy help you get through it as you become the rock for those who need it.
If you picked this dreamcatcher, you're the kind of person whose creativity knows no bounds. Always on the lookout for a way to think outside the box, you tend to push other's judgments to the back of your mind. You don't really care to conform to what other people believe you should do, no matter how close you are to them. You listen to your heart and work your hardest to reach your goals in the way you want. Of course, occasionally, for the benefit of your loved ones, you do put your own ambitions aside and try to do things their way. But those who really know and love you are usually okay with following your lead because they see the brilliance behind your work and ideas.
