Dream Catcher originated in the traditional culture of Native Americans.
They believe that a dreamcatcher changes a person's dreams.
Nice dreams travel through the hole into the sleeper’s mind,
Nightmares pass through the holes and out of the window.
The good dreams are trapped in the web, and then slide down the feathers to the sleeping person.
Feathers are usually attached to the dreamcatcher to entertain babies, but they have a deeper meaning.
A feather stands for breath and air, which are essential for life.
Hung up on the wooden hook of the dreamcatcher, a feather also helps the nice dreams to slip down into the dream world.
It is believed that each movement of the feathers announces the arrival, and the passage of a new beautiful, and peaceful dream.
The idea of the evil eye dates back as far as 3,000 B.C.
Ancient people walking about a common area would see others looking at them with envy.
If a person had a desirable wife or possessions, the evil eye was cast upon a person out of envy.
A person receiving the evil eye would undoubtedly have bad luck afterward.
To avoid this look, people wore talisman beads or evil eyes.
Any gaze was essentially reflected back to the person for their bad luck to resume.
The evil eye is a curse believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when they are unaware.
Many cultures believe that receiving the evil eye will cause misfortune or injury.
Amulets created to protect against the evil eye are also frequently called "evil eyes"
It's believed that there are three types of evil eyes.
The first are unconscious evil eyes. These harm people and things, without intending to.
The second type intends to harm.
The third one is unseen, hidden evil which is the most scared one.
It was believed that, this eye saw all the wickedness in the world and removed poverty and ignorance.
