Tree of Life
All major civilizations such as Egyptians, Mesopotamian, Sumerian, Native American and Mayan have mentioned the Tree of Life in their art work. It seems that such depiction of life and nature is ancient wisdom. The tree of life in some cultures is considered to be a link between the three worlds, heavens, earth, and the underworld.
The tree of life is a reminder to live in harmony with nature. After all, trees soak up carbon dioxide from the air, producing life-giving oxygen in return. In fact, a medium-sized tree generates the same amount of oxygen as each one of us needs to breathe. A tree is literally a Tree of Life!
In Celtic lore, the Druids believed the Sacred Tree had the power to reveal messages from the gods. They believed all living things including trees and plants were spiritual, mystical beings. They believed trees in particular were a source of great wisdom with the power to bridge the gap between the upper and lower worlds and bring blessings from the gods.
The Tree of Life symbol represents different qualities like wisdom, strength, protection, beauty, bounty and regeneration. It also represents stability, the inner self, integrity, balance and the cycle of life.
Wearing Tree of Life jewellery or hanging a picture of the Tree of Life brings positive energy and well-being.
