Personalised Dream Painting Inspired by Dream Catcher


personalised painting
A personalised dream painting is a modern take on the traditional dream catcher, a Native American talisman that is believed to filter out bad dreams and allow only good dreams to enter our minds. Like a dream catcher, a personalised dream painting can provide a visual reference to positive and comforting things that can help soothe and calm us when we wake up from a bad dream.

What is a dream catcher?

A dream catcher is a handmade object that typically consists of a willow hoop decorated with a web of threads, beads, and feathers. It is traditionally hung above the bed of a sleeping person to catch bad dreams and allow good dreams to pass through. The web of threads is said to filter out negative thoughts and emotions, while the feathers and beads represent positive energy and protection.

How a personalised dream painting can help with bad dreams

A personalised dream painting can provide a similar sense of comfort and security to that of a dream catcher. By including all your favourite things in the painting, you create a visual reference that can help you feel more grounded and at ease when you wake up from a bad dream. In addition, creating a personalised dream painting can be a fun and creative way to express yourself and showcase your individuality.
