Dream catchers are one of the most fascinating traditions of Native Americans. The traditional dream catcher was intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, while letting positive dreams through. The positive dreams would slip through the hole in the center of the dreamcatcher, and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below. The negative dreams would be caught up in the web, and expire when the first rays of the sun struck them.
Some Native Americans of North America held the hoop in the highest esteem, because it symbolized strength and unity. Many symbols started around the hoop, and one of these symbols is the dream catcher.
I use the dreamcatcher as a metaphor for my coaching style. The dreamcatcher protects the individual while they sleep by filtering out the bad dreams. My style of coaching will help you filter out your negative thoughts and allow your strengths to flow and guide you toward a greater, empowered self.
The hoop, symbolizing unity, I will walk beside you during your journey as you unite your strengths with your spirit.
