This is my dream catcher in my room

This is a Peruvian dream catcher. It is used in houses to shield bad energy and give good luck. I use it in my room to protect myself from bad energy that could be in my room. It is made out of elements from the Peruvian jungles. The jungle is rich with trees and wildlife, some indigenous folks live there, as well as gold mines can be found. One of these things are fish scales from a fish called paiche. Huayruro seeds are popular in Peruvian culture to give good luck and repel bad energy. Lastly, at the bottom there are dried tree seeds. Peru is very spiritual from sacred mountains to ancient legends. They even have rituals to Pachamama which is translated to Madre Tierra once again translated to Mother earth. This dream catcher is very important to me because Peruvian culture is very spiritual. This dream catcher and other spiritual items from Peru make me feel safe and connected to Peru. Inca, also spelled Inka, South american indians who, at the time of the Spanish conquest in 1532, ruled an empire that extended along the Pacific coast and Andean highlands from the northern border of modern Ecuador to the Maule River in central Chile. While I talk about spiritual things, of course I am going to write a small passage about the incas. They had 7 main gods they believed in Hanan Pacha the sky, Uku Pacha the inner earth, Wiracocha the creator god, the sun god Inti, Mamaquilla the moon goddess, lllapa the thunder god and finally the last one Pacha mama the earth goddess and so on this concludes my passage.
