This discussion started out in another thread and I thought it would be best to give it it's own voice. Here's what came before:
And SED, it all seemed to start when I began my first practice dreamcatcher Thursday night. I've made two now. Nothing outstanding, believe me, but somehow the weaving seemed to put things in motion. When you made your first ones, SED, did you feel they mirrored your own energy? All will, of course, to some extent, but these two, hanging on my wall, seem to be speaking to me...I find myself drawn to looking at them off and on and finding something new each time.
Actually no I didn't feel they mirrored my energy. From the get go, each had their own thing that had nothing to do with me. That's when I became aware they held a medicine all their own. I've actually been tracking generalities through the comments that people have offered. Who knows.. maybe another book sometime down the line I would be interested in hearing more on this experience you're having though You mentioned the weaving and yes, that does change something within ya.
Well, it was very interesting as I began to do the second dreamcatcher. As I went along weaving (four inch bamboo hoop)I began to feel a pull to one side...to the left. The center opening is off center to the left. Therefore the energy is heavier on the right side. The web is crimson in color and I have amethyst beads on the right side...three of them spaced widely in the upper right quadrant and four closely spaced on the lower right quadrant edging into the left. After wrapping the wheel with a ribbon whose pale lavender stripe fades into a pale crimson stripe, I felt to weave the left inner side of the opening with a three foot piece of the ribbon, the left over ribbon hanging down as two streamers.
It wasn't until I hung it on the wall that I realized that my own energy is off center to the right. That's why I felt it must be reflective of my own energy. The streamers seem to both ground and balance the heavy energy on the right side.
I don't have a digital camera or a scanner, otherwise I'd post a pic.
